Hi ,One sugestion is to chech your timing belt by taking the oil cap of and look if the valvas move when some one else crank the enginee,If they dont move the belt is bad , if they move check for fuel delivery and ignition module. Good Luck.

2003 suzuki aerio won't start. No check engen lite as before. Charged battery changed relays. Check engen light was on car ran.car died tonight did the same thing and no check engen light


wont crank or cranks fast but will not start???????????????????
what engine is there, we cant guess them , ever. gas or diesel?
the CEL must glow key on then go out running, that is normal.
you need to stop thinking the CEL is magic nor the ECU behind it
a $100000 artificial intelligent entity.
IT'S NOT. (but the scan tool is very good to use now, if it dont start)
  1. ever get a tune up this decade??????? like spark parts an filtes, no? and timing belt ignored?
  2. fuses good.?
  3. spark good on all cylinders?
  4. starts with test fuel.? yes ,no.?
  5. yes, then fuel loss or flooding is it flooding?
  6. no, spark is bad or engine bad, since spark is ok, then engine and if engine is bad, then the timing belt slipped, due to #1
no engine stated so cant really wax too smart, can I.

dah line up...
engines.
1.3 L I4; 1.5 L I4; 1.6 L I4; 1.8 L I4; 2.0 L I4; 2.3 L I4; 1.4 L Diesel I4

got one of those?/?????????????????????????????

in USA the 2.0L is king but you never said country,.... so......
the J20 is cam chain drive, good for 250k miles, fresh oil all the time.


now guess 2,???????????????????????
battery goes dead , engine will not crank.
dash lamps dim, or dead, head lights dim or dead.
so that is called NO CRANK
or my starter is silent or its , just clicks
that is a DEAD battery, left head lights on, charge it now. fix phantom drains.
or cables rusty
or alternator(or related) dead. (car will stall driven after battery charged)
or battery is bad.

I was driving my 2001 sukuie down thestree, it just died like you yurned the key off and it would not restart, hauled it home and now need to find the problem, it has pleanty of fuel.the lights in the...


wont CRANK or CRANKS Fast but will not start , which is it?
the fuses blew or the battery is dead (discharged)
battery voltage is 12.6vdc rested, if not and is lower, its discharged.

did warning lights come on before the STALL? (died is stall)
if yes, and the charge lamp came on, and was ignored this is normal
for the battery to die. with alternator dead.

try jumper cable starts yet? that be next after fuses. and battery volts. (no cranking)
if it cranks fast, still fuses. check. then check for spark if not a diesel. some GV have Diesels, (3 kinds too)

2007 chevy 2500 died while driving down the road. Lights/radio still work


The battery light was on because the engine stopped running. The alternator was not charging the battery.
On a model that new, if the engine did overheat the computer could kill it. A stuck thermostat comes to mind. But your temp gauge should have been on the hot side.
Its also possible something locked up and is preventing the engine from cranking, such as the water pump or alternator. You may need to remove the belt to verify. If the belt is slipping it would not power the water pump to keep the engine cool.

2000 GMC Sierra cranks wont start


Hello, 9-10 volts is not enough to keep a modern vehicle running. Taking in consideration the age and model of this truck, it could easily be an alternator failure.
I hope this helps.

Car dies and battery light comes on.


Will it crank over when it won't start? When It dies check for spark at the sparkplugs if none change the ignition module.
