Drove my 2014 Hyundai Accent through a puddle . Went through fine and slow got about a block from the puddle and it died. Clicks when you try to start it but won't start


Check your battery contacts. If they have corrosion or are loose it is conceivable that the solenoid will activate (the clicks) but the power from the battery will not transmit to the starter motor.

My 96 audi a6 dies while driving wont start after it dies


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

REPLACED STARTER THEN RECHARGED BATTERY CAR STARTED FINE THEN DROVE FINE THEN GAGES ON DASH STARTED GOING CRAZY ALONG WITH RADIO THEN CAR ACTING LIKE IT WANTS TO DIE NOW WONT START


sounds like your battery is dying,, have it LOAD tested,, it could show 12 volts, but the amperage isn't up to par,, even with one bad cell the battery will drain , also,, once you know its fully charged, start the vehicle,, use a meter at the battery posts to check the voltage,, you should get a reading of 13.5-14.5 volts, if not your alternator isn't doing its job, make sure all battery connections are clean and tight.

The starter must have been bad due to the water.

Bad PCM or ignition coil.

Went through puddle of slush everything started goin dim. died out when i got home. tightened the alternator belts and it still wont stay runnin. (will take a jumpand run for a minute or two. but then dies...


bad alternator. happened to me in a big puddle. go to the parts store and they'll test it for free. you're running the car off of the battery. you will kill the battery if you keep going. the alternator is a pain to get out/in because there are several things in the way that must be moved. $100-$150 for the part, 1-3 hours to do it. have the battery tested after you're done. good luck!

My Mazda 929 went through a water puddle and now it wont start


I agree with "emissionwiz". What probably happened was you hydrostatic-ally locked your engine. What happens is when you went through that puddle water got sucked into the intake and into the engine. Water being a liquid cannot be compressed and stalled the engine and most likely bent some internal components. If you can hear the starter click but the engine won't turn over you've got a 99% chance its a ruined engine. If you don't want to believe that try turning the engine over by hand (socket on crankshaft), you should be able to turn it, if not it's done for. Good luck and sorry about the misfortune but next time go very slow through puddles.

Turns over but wont start


Briannatara:

Some questions to help in the analysis........

You say "it cranked for about 3 seconds and died as if I turned off the key" did it actually start and then die?
Have there been any clues (unusual happenings) recently that might relate to the current problem?

Is there a reason the battery went dead? was something left on? Lights, etc?

How old is the battery?
