Car won't start, jump starts ok, battery showing charge, can't turn it over from ignition

    I am having a very similar issue with my 2001 Audi A4... except I have no sound when turning over the key. However all the lights, radio, headlights etc are working fine. I had AAA come out to jump it and no luck. The towtruck driver was looking for some type of reset switch, but couldnt find it.

    Does anyone have any ideas on this?



    Thank you.

    My battery would not charge. I just bought a new battery, same problem. When I get jump started, the car would run for maybe 30 minutes or so after that everything start going low: radio, dashboard light, ect...then the car would die instantly. I don't know what else to check. I don't have the money to get it fixed. Please help me with this problem.

If the car jump starts ok then I would suspect that the battery is old or will not take a charge or loose connection at the battery. Replace the battery with the recommended battery (don't get the cheapest replacement). Cadillac's have loads of electrical demands and/also when the car is not running.

Could be your alternator. If you can get it started again. Try to have the alternator checked out.

Look for a light that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT on the dash. This light could cause this problem. Explained on this link.

Why is that i have to jumstart my car instead of using the ignition


If jump starting starts your car, but it won't start normally, you have a power supply problem. Based on what you have said, I would suspect corroded battery terminals, or no charge on the battery - caused by a bad battery or corroded terminals. It the car keeps running after being jumped, I your charging system is probaby OK

Car won't start without a jump but battery okay


wont crank or wont start.??
no car starts , if it cant crank. (unless push starter (M/T magic)
that is not a trans sensor its the PRN switch.
ill answer for, wont CRANK !
it wont crank even with a good battery (charged) or jump started.
1: bad start
2: bad wires to same.
so hot wire the starter small wire, the key start line is tiny.
cranks. , starter good, no crank starter bad or cables bad.
if it cranks hot wired, then the key line is dead.
easy, huh?

My car on tuesday would not turn over. It sounded like if you left your car out in the winter and it won't start right away but mine will not start at all. Now as of Wednesday it is making a...


sounds like your battery is just low,, it doesn't have the amps to actually turn the car over fully, you have 2 options, get the battery charged, or try to get someone to help you with a jump start,, either way , once you get it started, take the battery and have someone do a LOAD test on it,, to be sure all the cells are taking a full charge
