Kangoo van 17dci laying for 8 weeks and now wont start


when you say won go do you mean that there is no power at all,( flat battery,) there is power only lights in the dash? First of all check whether you do have powerful Battery for a crank start. If not then ask for a help from a qualified electrician to jump start it by means of a strong battery and leads. 8 weeks it is a long time for a battery to drop power down possible completely dead if the battery is old.

Car won't crank


No parts are ever replaced to resolve any vehicle issues

You have to proper test any vehicle systems that apear
to have a problem

Once all the answers are present, only then do parts get
installed if necessary

Things such as fuses & relays only fail here on these web site
blogs, for the most parts,way too much silly talk about nothing

Need to have the car at a repair shop that actually can diagnose
something

From what I see on this site from people asking questions,
that appears to be an issue also,finding a half decent shop
these days

1995 taurus won't start


The dash lights coming on doesn't mean your battery is strong enough to turn the car over. That being said, I would lean towards the starter also. I would just have the battery chkd out before you go replacing other things just to be sure. Good luck to you.

1992 Mazda mpv . Won't hold charge . Engine won't


The first thing to do is have the battery tested, just because you charged it doesn't mean it will stay charged if the cells are sulfated up or shorted.

My toyota camry 1994 the CAa said that need to check the alternator because one when i start my car it wont start and they said my batterry charging is not good? is it true?


You do not state whether the starter actually cranks the engine or not. If it does so strongly, but the engine won't fire, then this stuff below doesn't apply.

There are several other things which may be the cause. Alternators are usually quite reliable, so check the alternator drive belt first to see it is not loose or broken. Is your charging warning light on the dash lit up? That should come on if the alternator is not charging.

The failure to start could also be either an old battery that will no longer hold a charge, or, the battery is OK but yes, the alternator is not charging it properly, or, the starter motor has a fault, or, in an auto, the start switch on the transmission has failed.

There is a test, but it needs the engine to be running. If you can get it started somehow, turn the headlights on high beam, have someone watch them, and rev the engine moderately.

If the headlights look dim at idle, and flare up brightly when the engine is revved, the battery is weak and the alternator is OK.

If they are dim all the time, it is probably the alternator at fault, or, the alternator drive belt is loose or broken.

If the lights are bright all the time when doing this test, it is probably the starter motor solenoid contacts. These do wear out in a Camry, and can fail only sometimes when worn down.

2002 caddilac deville no dash lights and car won't start


Do you have any other lights, such as door lights or head and tail lights? If not the first thing I would check is the battery cable terminals. Over time corrosion will build up on the inside of the terminal lugs and not make contact. Even if they look clean from the top, I would still take them off and give them a good cleaning with a wire brush.

The second thing I would do is try a jump start. This tells you a lot, whether it starts or not. If it starts, it tells you that the problem is in your battery or alternator or starter relay or even a fuse. If it doesn't start, then it is probably something with the engine keeping the starter lugged down.

Starting Problem # 1: Engine Won't Crank At All

Scenario: You turn the key, but nothing happens: And by nothing, we mean there is no dash light, no sound, nada. The first thing you should do in this case is to pop the hood and check the battery. Either the battery is completely dead or there's a wiring problem in the starting system. Try jump-starting the battery. If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to call for assistance.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a rapid clicking sound, and the dash lights dim. This is your classic low-battery symptom. Jump-starting the battery should get the engine to start.However, if you keep experiencing this problem, you could have a bad battery or alternator, or it could be some­thing as simple as a loose alternator belt. Take your car to a mechanic just as soon as you can.

Scenario: When you turn the key, the lights on the dash come on, but you don't hear anything. Make sure you have the shift selector all the way in park. Move it out of park and then back, or try starting it with the shifter in neutral. If your car has a manual transmission, make sure you have the clutch pressed all the way to the floor. If that doesn't help, you can try jump-starting the battery, but it probably won't work. There's a good chance your car has a bad starter or a problem in the starting circuit. That could mean a prob­lem in the ignition switch, neutral safety switch or starter sole­noid.

Scenario: The dash lights come on when you turn the key, and then go right out, and the engine doesn't crank when you turn the key to start, But, the lights slowly come back on when you release the key. This is another classic: the bad battery connection. When you turn the key to start, the starter pulls so much current that it breaks the connection. Then, when you release the key, the connection slowly comes back. The connection provides enough power to turn the dash lights on, but not enough to crank the starter. Cleaning and tightening the battery terminals may fix this prob­lem.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a single, hard clunk. Turn the headlights on and try again. Do the lights dim slightly when you turn the key? If so, you probably have a bad starter or a seized engine. If the headlights don't dim at all, or just barely dim, there may be a connection problem between the starter solenoid and the starter itself.

Scenario: When you turn the key, you hear a loud, scraping or grinding sound like metal on metal. The starter drive is bad, or the ring gear on the flywheel damaged, or both. You may get the starter to engage if you try turning the key a couple of times, but let go of the key right away if you hear the noise again. If the car does start, you should drive it right over to local repair shop and have the problem fixed.

Starting Problem #2: Engine Cranks but It Won't Start

Scenario: The engine seems to crank normally, but the engine doesn't even sound as if it's trying to start. Is there gas in the tank? Gas gauges are notoriously inaccurate. If you have to move your head to one side to get the needle to move off empty, try adding some gas to the tank.

Scenario: When you first turn the key on, you don't hear the fuel pump run. In cars with electronic fuel injection, you should hear a light hum a few seconds from around the fuel tank. That's the electric fuel pump running. If you don't hear the fuel pump run for a couple seconds when you first turn the key on, try cranking the engine until the oil light goes out. That may start the pump running and allow the engine to start.

Scenario: The engine cranks normally, and it sounds like it wants to start, but it won't. You may have flooded the engine. Hold the gas floor and try again. (Let the gas pedal up when it finally starts). If it's raining out, the ignition system may be wet.

Scenario: The engine cranks unevenly in a repetitive-sounding pattern. You may have a bad timing chain or timing belt. Call a tow truck and have it towed to the repair shop.


Starting Problem # 3: Engine Starts but It Shuts Off

Scenario: The engine starts right up, but shuts off as soon as you release the key. This is the classic symptom of a bad ignition switch. A new switch should fix it.

Scenario: The engine starts and runs, but when you put the transmission in gear, the car lurches and the engine shuts off. The converter clutch in the transmission torque converter probably is engaging when it shouldn't. On some cars, you can bypass this by disconnecting the torque converter clutch solenoid; but unless you know which wire to pull, forget about it. Call for assistance.

Scenario: The engine starts and runs, but seems to idle slowly and stalls when you come to a stop. This probably is a fast idle problem. When the engine is cold, it's supposed to idle a little faster than normal to keep the engine running. You may be able to drive using two feet until the engine warms up: one on the gas to hold the idle up a little and the other for the brake. However, don't keep driving it this way. Take your car to your repair shop just as soon as you

My dash board from my mitsubishi galant went off


Can you please turn on your headlights to full beam, and confirm if you have strong brightness?

If your battery is in good condition, then there is likely a short somewhere in the main power line (coming from the red lead of your battery).

You should also inspect the MAIN engine power fuse, situated in the Engine fuse box, to ensure it hasn't blown.
