    OH YES I FORGOT TO MENTION. THE BATTERY POST SPARKS SLIGHTLY WHEN I REMOVE THE GROUND CABLE AND RUB IT AGAINST THE BATTERY POST, EVEN WITH KEY OFF.(SHORT??)

    I DOUBT IT IS JUST A LOOSE CONNECTION. IF SO WHY AM I SEEING BATTERY DRAIN (LIGHT SPARKS) WHEN I REMOVE THE BATTERY TERMINAL AND SCRATCH IT LIGHTLY AGAINST THE BATTERY POST, EVEN WITH THE KEY REMOVED? COULD IT BE AN INTERMITENT IGNTION SWITCH? COULD IT BE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE ALARM SYSTEM, SEEING THE DRIVER DOOR HAS A LOCK ENTRY PROBLEM??

My car wont crank or make a sound.yet the lights ,horn and radio works fine


I would still check the battery to make sure it has the correct amount of amperage it would need for the starter, if that checks out good, Sounds like you have a ground problem at the starter, power issue at the starter or the starter is bad

Wont start after running for a while. service lights work, radio, headlights but wont crank. just replaced starter, got new battery about a month ago. after 5-8 hours car starts with no problems.


Hot does make a difference. You say it won't start, but does it crank and not start, or not even crank? If cranks but will not start, any electrical part may fail as it heats, and when you shut it off the engine gets much hotter since coolant is no longer circulating. Thus, a marginal crank or cam sensor, or coil/ignition module may work while cold of while engine is running, but fail when you first turn car off.

Have you checked the fuel pump relay to see if it is sending power to the pump ? The computer grounds the relay when the computer "sees" oil pressure or engine RPM.

Camshaft position sensor


Are you saying the engine will not start, or not crank ?
The cam sensor does not come into play until the engine is cranking.

Car wont start, when i turn the key i only hear 1 click and the check charging system come on. all lights, radio, horn and heater come on


Sounds like the starter could be going bad or frozen. But before I did that I would check the battery to see if it has enough power to start the car. Your battery could have enough power to run radio and lights but not have enough cranking power to start the car especially if you are in a cold area. Low temperatures can cause your starter to freez and your battery to not crank the engine.

Lights,horn work but car wont start


Troubleshoot the starter. If your battery is good, then you WILL have power...the lights will work, horn, etc, but....if the starter is toast...you need a starter.
