Make sure battery cable connections are clean and tight, both ends of both cables..... next thing would be the starter , its probably 15 years old .......they do wear out.... remove it and have it bench tested at an auto parts store ....

Our van won't start. Dash lights turn on but the ignition only makes a click noise and the engine does not turn over..


It sounds as if you have a loose battery connection. Check the battery cable for tightness and clean any corrosion with baking soda and water. The battery may be weak as well if the cables were not tight it would not charge properly.

Can a battery read 12volts when engine doesn't start and if lights get turned on voltage drops to 3 volts does this mean the battery is no good


Your battery is definately suspect.Give it a good charge and check it again. If it drops like that when you turn on the lights replace it.A fully charged battery in good condition will read about 14.2V when fully charged. When you turn the key to start it will drop to about 11 and come back up when you turn the key off.

Have not had any problems with vehicle. Went out to start it tonight and it would not start. Sounds like engine is trying to turn over, but it won't. Light comes on indicating "service emission


Does the engine turn over fast or is it sluggish? Headlights bright or dim? If engine turns over sluggish and headlights are dim, I'd suspect a defective/discharged battery or possibly a charging problem causing the battery problem. Start by making sure the battery cable terminals at the battery posts are clean and tight.

Put a voltmeter across the battery posts with the engine off, you should measure 12.8 volts if the battery is fully charged. Less voltage and the battery is not fully charged. When you try to start the engine, the battery voltage will drop momentarily when the starter is engaged. I would not be surprised to see the voltage to drop to 8-9 volts when the starter is engaged and the engine turning over. If it drops to a lower voltage, I would suspect a battery problem. The "service emmisions" light I would expect to be a secondary indication and resolve itself once the engine starting problem is resolved.

2001 bmw ci convertible will not start. i hear clicking noise but will not turn the engine. battery is fully charged.


if the battery is fully charged, one on of a few things could be wrong. Bad solenoid, bad starter, or engine siezed. First two would probally only be around a $70 part.

Turn the ignition and the engine barely cranks


You could have a starter that draws too much amperage or a bad ground. Check your grounds at the battery cables and check that the battery is fully charged. You may have an alternator problem. If the battery is fully charged check the starting and charging systems and that will tell you your problem.

I have a 2003 dodge durango v8 and the motor will not start. When I turn the key the engine makes no sound at all. The lights in the interior work, as well as the keyless entry. Is this a battery problem...


The problem is most likely the starter, but you should ensure that the battery is fully charged before proceeding. The battery doesn't need to be fully charged to run just about all the interior lights and the head lights, but attempting to crank the engine is a large current draw, and can drop voltage quickly on a partially discharged battery.

If the battery is fully charged, continue to checking the starter.
