    My 2000 Pontiac Grand Am sounds like it's going to crank, but it just wont. It sounds completely normal and I haven't had any problems with the car before... I went to a friend's house and it sounded completely normal. Then when I left the friend's house, it took like 10 cranks to get it working. Then when I got home, it just wouldn't crank anymore.

Its the security, turn the key to off but leave it in, then open and close the door, then puch the lock door button on your driver side door, then try to start it, the light should stop blinking and all should be fine

Check and make sure your security light isn't on.  The security feature malfunctions on these models often.  If the security light is on, turn everything in the car off (radio, a.c. etc.) turn the key off, turn it back on to acc tap it into start until if just starts to turn over then leave it in the relaxed start position.  Allow the car to just sit like this for up to 20 minutes.  The security light will go off and you will then be able to turn the key off and then start the vehicle.

Is the security light on? If you have spark and fuel, it should run. Any codes? Could be bad crank sensor or cam sensor.

Why my 2005 ba ford falcon wont start?


Its either no spark or no gas. Remove the fuel line and carefully crank it over..are you getting any fuel? If not possibly clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pump. If yes, are the spark plugs firing. Remove number one plug lead hold close to any metal surface on engine, crank over ..spark there..strong or weak spark? No spark check coil and associated parts.

My 1991 ford festiva wont crank replaced fuel pump and screen and fuel filter and fuel pump relay still wont crank and we have pushed the reset button what now help pls


Won't crank? Problem is with starter-have it tested.
If it cranks and won't start, check for spark at one of the spark plug wires. If no spark when the engine is cranking, the ignition circuit is the problem.

Will not start after it rains - have replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, ignition coil, plugs, plug wires, etc


you change cap and rotor? ignition module?, when it wont start either you dont have spark or fuel, tto check if you gave it a blast of starting fluid while cranking If starts and dies you got a fuel problem, if it just cranks you got a spark-ignition problem

My 99 f350 v10 wont start. starts fine for a couple of days then out of the blue it just wont start. replaced filter, throttle control nothing any help


You have replace filter-assuming air filter?
Throttle control? Are you checking to make sure you have Fuel spraying after you crank the engine?
1- Let's check this. AFter cranking for a while.
2- remove spark plugs see if it wet.
3- it if is, you have fuel Go to # 5
4- It if is not, then you don't have Fuel. Need to fix this.
5- Plug the spark plug as it supposely connected, but not screwing in. Hold it against the chasis and crank it up to see if it sparks. Need a helper.
6-If there is no spark. Need to fix this.
7- If your spark plug is wet and there is also spark, report back then I will provide next diagnoses. Good luck.

Car wont start


Fuel delivery must be confirmed with a fuel pressure gauge on this vehicle. Disconnecting the fuel line and cranking the engine to see fuel shooting out does not confirm pressure, it only confirms fuel delivery. Remember you need both fuel delivery and pressure. On this vehicle if the psi is off by just one number that's enough to keep it from starting. Also replacing the coil and rotor (as you stated) does not confirm that spark is reaching the plugs. Confirm that both spark and adequate fuel pressure are reaching ALL the spark plugs.
