Have you had those batteries checked under a load? If you have then I would start by replacing your battery cables, if they are more than 8-10 yrs old they need to be replaced because they corrode inside the cable coating,they may look ok on the outside but they build up alot of gunk under the plastic coating..change out both positive and negative cables at the same time, because they both can and will corrode...I would start there first..They are pretty inexpensive to replace...Good luck..

I changed the starter and it still will not start


Can you tell us what happens when you try to start it? Is there any noise at all? If there is no noise (no cranking) be sure you:
1. Have a strong battery (this is the most common issue). Your battery may seem like it has power because it will light the lights/radio etc. but that doesn't mean it has enough juice to crank the engine. Try a jump start with a known good battery and see if it starts. If it does, you need a new battery. Once you have verified your battery is good be sure to verify that your alternator is working correctly. You should have at least 14.5v at the battery when the engine is running
2. Check all your fuses
3. Verify you are getting 12v at the starter when you try to start it. If not, then there is an electrical issue somewhere between the ignition switch and the starter.

Range rider bugy with a kawasaki fc290v electronic ignition with a fully charged battery i turn the key and get nothing any ideas ?


I would say you should check to make sure you are getting juice to the starter when you are trying to start it. This can be done with a simple voltmeter or 12v light tester. If you are getting juice, then the issue seems to be a bad starter. If you are getting juice the it could be the solenoid, ignition switch or a simple loose connection. I will be more than happy to help you get this up and running. First start by testing to make sure you have juice going to the ignition switch and the starter when you turn the key.

Engine just died while driving. now will not turn over. lights work.


The battery may have enough juice left over to make the lights work but not enough to turn the motor over. If the battery is discharged, you probably need a new alternator. When the alternator goes the car will run until the the battery doesn't have enough juice to fire the motor.
If the motor will turn over but just not fire, it's an electronic ignition problem.
If the battery has full power and the starter motor turns but the motor won't turn over, then you have a broken timing belt.

Okay, I attempted to jump my 2004 Chevrolet Impala. Without the jump car and jumper cables, I have zero juice. I hook up the cables, I have juice, the clock in the car hits 12:00 and starts adding as...


sometimes the battery can be so bad that it wont jump. take the battery cable off and cut that rubber **** off from the battery terminal ends that go in a circle around the end. make sure everything is clean. sometimes a little corrosion there goes a long way. give it a shot if u havnt already and good luck

My gauges work but it wont turn over i dont hear any noise from the starter


Three possibilities I think:
First is weak battery. There may be enough juice to light the gauges but it takes power to turn an engine.

Second, bad solenoid. The solenoid is a relay which closes the high current circuit that delivers the cranking power to the starter motor. If you hear clicking in the engine compartment (not the starter) when you turn the ignition switch on it is probably the solenoid engaging and disengaging. However if the battery is weak it won't turn the starter motor. If the solenoid is clicking look at the battery first. The solenoid could be bad but the clicking indicates it's trying to work and there just may not be enough juice to turn over the engine.

Third possibility is the starter motor itself is dead. You have to answer some questions for yourself. Is this an old,neglected car or one that has been taken care of? I would be looking at battery. Can you jump start it? If yes then weak battery is the likely problem. If the car and battery are relatively new and in good condition you should suspect the charging system, that is, the alternator. Did this happen all of a sudden on a car that was running fine recently or has the car been sitting idle for weeks/months.Eliminate the easy stuff.
Clean battery terminals?
Good battery connections and ground?
Try jump start - if yes then follow up battery/charging system. If no start then try to hear for solenoid clicking. If jump start does nothing -figure the solenoid first. If it sounds like solenoid is kicking in but engine does not turn then the starter is looking a little guilty. Jump starting will answer a lot of questions. If the car is really dead then the car that is jumping may have to be connected and revved up a couple minutes to juice up the dead battery enough to turn the starter over. If it turns over a little during the jump start but just barely then you should figure your battery is bad.

Cold weather Car won't start, but fan under hood does


Because ur lights ar eon when u turn the ignition key doesn't necessarily mean the battery has juice. It probably does to do those things, but it probably doesn't have the cranking amps to send to the starter so that it can turn over the engine. But if the battery is good, it means that ur starter is not working properly, because u said that the engine isn't turning ove. Try tapping the starter a bit and c wut happens. Sometimes it works. If unsure, consult with an auto-electrician. This is definelty an elcetrical probelm

2000 Olds Bravada ignition


Okay .. had the EXACT same problem - word for word .. turns out, that my positive battery cable was corrodid badly.. the ignition switch wasnt getting any power or signal - so it didnt know the trans was in park, so it locked the key in place... and all power cut off obviously because no juice was going thru the cable.
Apparently however.. you will get almost the exact same symptoms if the ignition switch burns out... so first test the battery cables themselves.. if they are fine .. then plan on replacing the ignition switch.
