I've had trouble like that with my car before. Check the starter. A lot of times the starter can have the same symptoms as a battery. Hope this helps!

Batt. installed started fine now will turn over but not start


Sounds like the computer is in lock down. My sister has a 99 cavalier and used a cut key to start her car and a couple days later the car would not start. Tried everything then had to get a gm computer to reset the ecu. I have heard about the anti theft systems in GM cars that can cause this as well. Look into it if you cant figure anything out. There might be a code to input into the radio to take it off as well.

Ohm out your spark plug wires. They should have 15k resistance, new. Older ones lose conductivity. Attach leads and bend them back & forth gently. Jumping needle means replace them, ALL of them. Best 35 bucks (4cyl) you'll ever spend. If changing spark pugs, stay away from single platinum, they don't play nice with DIC engines, go double platinum. She'll fire, she'll run, she'll walk the damn dog after that. Cheers.

F150 ignition (won't Start)


If it turns over but just won't fire and the timing sounds fine when it does run you might consider your ignition switch.  Does it sound like it wants to fire but only just when you let go of the key?
