    is the starter doing anything at all?



    is the motor turning?



    do you have spark, fuel, air flow?

Well sometimes jumping a car wont work if you have cheap cables or are jumping from a smaller car or simular. or it could be that your starter has locked up or gone bad and needs to be replaced. another thing is corrosion, it can eat the wires from the inside and youll never know. so if you see any corrosion anywhere it is a good chance that not enough power is getting to the starter. any of these could be the problem you will just have to check everything

Hello, I have a problem with my Audi A3 2001 (Y-reg). If car was not driven for more than 2 days it is impossible to switch on engine without booster (battery runs off). However when I trying to switch it...


The easiest way to find an electrical draw is to remove the negative battery cable and put a test light in between the battery post and the cable. If a draw is present the light will light bright, a dim light is normal. You can now remove fuses until you find the circuit that has a short. You should start at the alternator, it is very common that a diode will short out inside of the alternator allowing it to still charge, but also have a direct short.

check your ignition fuse and relay fuse.also check your master fuses located on the fire wall they are the ones that run from your nattery to your maine master fuse.follow the battery cable the red one all the way to the fire wall and from there it gos to the starter you may have burned thoses fuses out remove the black fuse cover

Car wont start, doesn't even turn over. battery is good though, boost does not work. think it might be the starter?


Its a good bet. Be sure the battery connections are good too.. Flip on the headlights and then try to start it.. have someone watch the lights.. If they go dark. You have a bad battery or bad connection. If the lights stay bright then you need to look at starter connections/starter/starter solenoid.

Car wont start or take boost


Sounds like your battery has a dead cell. The cranking amps required to start a vehicle is considerably more than to power accessories. The alarm may have a safety feature that will make it go off if the battery voltage is too low (or if someone disconnects your battery). Have your battery tested (with and without a load) and repost if this isn't the problem.

No head light alarm


I'm not sure what your cruise control problem is but your alarm problem may be the dome light switch for the drivers door. The switch is used by the alarm to determine that the door is open. Does the dome light come on bright when the door is opened? If not, try wiggling the switch (behind round rubber boot on the door post). If this works you can remove the switch by pulling up the rubber cover and unscrewing the bolt and carefully pulling the switch and wiring out. If wiggling the switch didn't work, you can check the wiring by grounding the wire to the switch, it should illuminate the dome switch brightly. If so, a new switch is about $10 at your dealer.
