Sometimes if the battery is really dead, even jumping it wont help it start up. It just sounds like a dead battery. Just try getting a new batter first then go from there.

FLUTTERING TEMP GAUGE I8N 2003 SATURN VUE


Well son, there are MANY reasons that might cause "fluttering" in your gauge. Mine started doing that, then I started getting a warning LIGHT for overheating. My solution for that was a fault in my fan. There are 2 speeds on my VUE'S electric fan. The one that required attention was speed/high (the speed/low was working). If your getting an intermittent short, watch both the temperature and fuel gauges to make sure it's not a real (both will do the "fluttering at the same time if it's faulty short) overheating problem. If you have an OCD-2 reader, plug it in under the driver's dashboard and go to function "live" read the engine temperature. If that's normal it will be between 120F-200F.
Faults may be relays in the under-hood fuse panel (there either good or bad, you can't see anything like other fuses) and there are the 30 amp or 10 amp fuses inside the same fuse block for that electric fan.. I've found that if I open the hood and start your car, after it warms up, there are tree things that could happen.
1: the low fan starts up, then start your A/C, the high fan speed comes on (normal, check your temp gauge).
2: After you warm it up, the low speed fan starts up, but with the A/C on, the high speed fan isn't coming on (bad high speed fuse or relay).
3: after warm up, the low speed fan doesn't come on, but starting the A/C the low speed fan comes on (bad sensor I think).

I've had a ghost in my VUE since I bought it, gone through 3 computers, CVT sensors, key won't turn without destroying the key. One time, I used the horn to get some deer off the road and the damned thing wouldn't shut off. While I was under the hood trying to get it to turn off, TWO cops stopped, they shined their flashlights on the fuse block and one on the diagram for me to pull the right fuse. I took it out, plugged it back in and it worked again! The shop didn't find a thing wrong with it, but the thing works still.s

2005 mazda 3 wont start. hear a clicking noise, gauges flutter, changed the battery and did not work. What could it be


possibly loose connection from battery to starter?,car has fuse for starting?....etc. Usually when a car's battery is very low and you try to start it,it would have those symptoms (gauges flicker/flutter). If the battery and connections are done properly,have you tried push starting (if standard transmission)it?. Possibly starter stuck on bad part of flywheel?;I'd try to rotate the crankshaft with breaker bar&socket (direction in which the engine would crank or run to avoid loosening the crankshaft bolt!!!) it would loosen the stuck starter/flywheel. Does your car have a starter solenoid or is it built in???

Clicking noise start wont


I would guess your alternator is failing or has failed. Your vehicle will not run if the battery is dead and the alternator has no output.

My 99 deville d'elegance overnight starts up fine with 14.2V but as it warms up, the volts start dropping to 12.5V...when i turn off radio and AC it jumps up to about 13V. I replaced battery,...


After starting the vehicle, look at the volt (alternator) gauge while one at a time shutting the radio and A/C off. As the grounded or shorted load is removed, the voltage should restore and show on the gauge.

Sounds like your battery is low-- is it the original battery? if so it may be time for a new one.
Try jump starting it yet?
