Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Since the car is not cranking, check your ignition fuse. If you have no lights on inside, like you have no power, you need to check the battery. Check the battery, terminals, and wires. Make sure no wires are damaged and make sure the terminals are cleaned. Follow the wires down to the starter and make sure everything is connected right. If you have power but no crank, it may be your starter or starter solenoid. Once again, check the starter wires and the battery, If you don't have a good connection, it could cause the car to not crank. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and thanks for using FixYa.

I had a coil pack that I just change less than seven days prior burn up then I change out but not it will crank but not start im stumped it is a Mitsubishi endeavor 2004 6cyl.


Assuming your spark plug firing order is correct after the coil pack replacement and your plugs and plug wires are clean and connected properly--and you have gas in the vehicle--I am thinking Throttle Position Sensor (TPS).
To test the TPS you hold the throttle pedal to the floor and start the vehicle, if the vehicle starts you need to clean or replace the TPS.

If the vehicle will still not start and everything was replaced on the vehicle as the parts came off of the vehicle--and the vehicle ran before think:
Compression: Washed cylinders (pull plugs and squirt clean oil in spark plug holes (one-two squirts).
Fuel: pull hose after fuel filter and crank vehicle
Spark: Pull plug wire and arc with screw driver when cranking engine. New coil pack could be faulty.

You may need someone to crank the vehicle (mind your hands) while you test. You should be able to find videos for spark testing.

I hope this helps.

2003 chevy silverado 5.3 will crank but not start and has no power to the pcm1 fuse

What make vehicle ? You need to find a power distribution chart an see where that fuse gets it power . Some vehicles have a relay that powers up the vehicle . ford has power hold relay , gm on some models has a run / crank relay , Chrysler has ASD - auto shut down relay , Asian vehicles have a main relay etc... But as long as there is no power to the PCM it's not going to start !

Put new crank pos. sensor still will not crank

the crank position sensor will never tell a vehicle to crank. the purpose of the crank position sensor is to detect misfires and also for engine timing. when a vehicle does not crank you need to look at starting system. check your battery, load test it. check for starter signal to starter solenoid from ignition switch.

2001 Accent starter doesn't crank when engine hot. New battery, new starter. I have to wait 10-15 min and there is no problem???

The problem is usually the crank sensor that is faulty. Run the vehicle till its hot, when the motor does not want to crank, remove sensor pore water on the sensor to cool down, refit sensor. If vehicle starts, purchase new crank sensor.

I have a 05 Nissan altima 2.4l engine. Vehicle stopped running. Replaced cam and crank sensors as well as all plugs and coils yet vehicle will not start help please. Fuel pump is pumping but spray starter...

If the crank sensor is not working, the engine management computer will not actiavte the fuel injectors. Verify the wiring to the crank sensor.

Crank sensor

When vehicle reaches a high temperature and cuts out pore water on the crank sensor. Once crank sensor is cooled down , vehicle will be able to start.

Extreme cold, my 1995 jaguar cranks but won't start?

One posibility;

This is a common problem for vehicles that have a battery that doesn't meet the minimum, " cold cranking amps ", requirement for the vehicle.

There is a higher demand on the battery when it is starting a vehicle in cold weather, and even though it is cranking, it may not be cranking fast enough.
