Purchase a OBD2 code reader for $50-$100. Scan for codes and let me know what Diagnostic Trouble Codes are active.

Take the bulb out if you can ,if it runs ok then leave well alone as this seems like dead money to me for just a service light ,or place a piece of black tape over the top .You have had brown out caused by the battery going flat and it seems like silly money to me for a light on

My '95 volvo 960 got hot, and battery died. Tried to jump start in and it would crank but not start.


Dead Battery

Always try & charge,it is unsafe to jump
a dead battery, as it may have shorted cells

If the engine rotates,turns over,cranks,it is the same thing

To say it won't crank or won't turn over is wrong
That is a no start

1---Engine does turn over,rotates,or cranks

2----Engine is a no start or won't start or won't fire, no iginition

2000 Chrysler Sebring w/year old battery.  Advise, what could have occurred when AAA jump me???  Left tiny interior light on under my mirror--battery dead.  After AAA came, I let it run


I doubt the service person did anything wrong. In today's cars with both engine and body computers, jump starting a car can be risky.
You're better off having the battery charged for an hour or so then trying to start it.
You may have to have the body computer scanned and possibly flashed to get everything working again. The body computer controls everything you mentioned. It could have lost some of the factory programming when the system was dead.

2004 chrysler pacifica no power even after jump


check for a bad connection like a bad ground at the battery, make sure both terminals are tight at the battery, the starter and the ground at the engine. the shop that installed the EGR should have erased the codes, after 50 to 100 miles you would be able to go through emissions.

Engine light comes on and states "Service Engine


Hello,

The problem is not from the connection from the battery to the starter. There are some problems a car develops due to the fact that it has been used for a long time and have not been serviced.

Like man, when we get ill, we seek a doctor for treatment, so also are cars, when they work for too long, they tend to come up with faults.

Once a car brings up the "Service Engine Soon" message, then you need to know it will either pack up immediately or soon.

So what you have to do is for you to service the engine.

Take care and good luck

You're alternator is dead. Once started the alternator should generate enough power by itself to keep the engine running.

Sounds as if the Alternator is not charging, alltough it could be a bad battery. Check the connections on the battery and make sure the cables are tight. Jump the car again, and if it starts check the alternator for output, it should be putting out close to 17 volts if the battery is dead. If the alternator charges then you probably have a battery problem, and need to replace the battery.

2001 chevy blazer not starting


I had this same problem with my 1997 Blazer, which required a fuel pump replacement as Nitrobike said. The sign to look for is when you get in the Blazer, turn your key forward to the accessory position, but not the start position. You should hear the fuel pump charging. It sounds like a hissing or whirring noise for about 2-3 seconds while it pumps fuel into the lines to prime the engine.

Fuel pump replacement isn't cheap, about $700-$1000.
