Is there any crank when you turn the key, if no crank then battery connections and battery to starter connections are to be checked.
But if there is crank and no start then the possibilities are:---

A car that cranks over but doesn't start, in many cases will be due to a bad fuel pump, a broken timing belt, an inoperative cam sensor or crank sensor. Also these problems are related to faulty spark plug. Check the spark at spark plugs when you start the car. Do you notice any spark. Actually you should see. If in case there is no spark then it's a spark plug problem. Also the coil pack gives power to spark plug. So check the voltage at coil pack. It will show 12 volt. If there is no voltage noticed at coil pack then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced. If all the possible options checked out ok then check the car starter. The starter gets power from battery to start the car. If the starter is faulty then it will not let the car to start. Also check and confirm that there is fuel in the car. If its very low fuel then in some cases this causes the problem. Also check and confirm that fuel pump is functioning properly and the fuel filter is not clogged. One of the easiest ways to check for a fuel pump related problem is to spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while trying to start the car. If the car starts momentarily, then there's a good chance the fuel pump is not working or the car is out of gas. You can also listen for the fuel pump's humming sound when the key is first turned on. Also if a inoperative fuel pump is suspected, a good technician will always check to verify there is power and ground being supplied to the pump, to eliminate the possibility of a bad relay or electrical issue. Fuel pressure can be checked with a pressure gauge and if there is pressure, pulse can be checked at the fuel injectors in several ways including the most common, with the use of noid lights. If the injectors don't have pulse the engine won't start. ---------- This troubleshooting tips will help you to solve the problem. Thanks. Helpmech.

Replaced the alternator in my 94 escort a couple of days ago. has been running fine since no indicator lights have come on, has started and ran no problem until suddenly tonight after driving out of town...


Best thing to start with is check the battery connections to make sure they are clean and tight.

If they are good use a volt meter to measure battery voltage. You should see 12.5 volts with everything turned off. then check it with the headlights turned on. If voltage drops than the battery is dead.

You can also try jumpstarting the vehicle. Once the vehicle is started measure voltage at the battery. You should see around 14 volts with the engine running. If you don't than the alternator may not be working.

Let me know what you find and thank you for using Fixya.com!

The car will not start


replace your battery. Even when a battery is dead it will still have enough juice to operate smal things like the horn and radio, but not enough juice to start the car. If the battery is dead you should still be able to jump start it and take it to autozone and they can check it along with the alternator at the same time.

My battery wont hold a charge even when jumped.


The battery may have been bad. They replaced it, and probably neglected to test the alternator. You now need to have both tested.
