    check battery(water level in cells& load test it) and if cables are loose & for corrosion use baking soda & water to clean. if you can reach starter try hitting it with a hammer it might start. if not replace starter

    Make sure it is in park if so try putting your foot on the brake and starting in neutral. Check if the security light on the dash comes on when you turn the key to the start position

Engine light on, vehicle usually won't start. engine light code is o2 sensor


The oxygen sensor won't stop it from cranking or starting

Check for spark or injector pulse when cranking

Check fuel pressure at the motor shrader valve with a gauge

My brake lights were not working so we checked all of the fuses, now we tried to crank the car and it wont start but you can hear a click from around the fuse box under the hood. car was working fine...


When you checked the fuses did you pull them out and examined them and if so was the batter connected. You could have accidentally blow a fuse by pushing it back into the fuse socket. Re-check all the fuses again but this time disconnect the battery. Any broke fuse replace and once done re-connect the batter.

As for your brake lights check the brake pedal and make sure that upon depressing the brake pad you hear a clicking sound engaging a switch to operate the brake lights. Good Luck

Charging stystem seems to be working..... But when ever the miss's gets inthe car to go to work,she will get 10 miles and the battery light will start flashing,then get solid and she will lose the head...


When this happens, are the gauges dropping or not working properly or at all? Check the alternator. May not be charging so everything is running off the battery. The battery is used mostly for starting, but the alternator recharges the battery, so if after driving for a short while, and alternator not charging, everything electrical will drain the battery. You can sometimes drive the car for a while when this happens, or if the alternator goes out completely, the car will not run at all.

GMC Sierra Won't Start. Battery Good. Tried Jump


If you know the batter is good.

Check the Starter to see it is getting power.

Get a test light [6.00] and see if the starter will light up the test light.
If not - then you may need a new starter. From the sounds of it you might want to take it to a professional as this can be a very labor intense job because the starter has to come out the bottom.

Took the battery out to replace the fron left headlight. Once we put the batter back the car would not start and all lights inside and out started flashing. Started the car downhill in 1st gear and drove...


does this car have an aftermarket alarm system? it sounds like it does, as i dont ever recall seeing a blue flashing light in one of these cars. do you have an alarm / auto start remote control? try locking / unlocking the car several times with the remote, if it has a remote start try starting it with the remote a few times. try locking / unlocking the car with the key. good luck!

Battery is dead and I want to charge it and take it in for replacement


Boost your car with jumper cables and let the car idle or drive around for about 20 minutes for the alternather charge the batter on its own .if the car shuts off after you started it might be your alternather is no good . the reason why ur alternather might not be working is because the batter all it does is give enough power for the starter to crank the engine as soon as the engine starts running it gets all its juice from the alternather and it charges the batter as well. but some times when the alternather works and the batter is dead meaning all the cells inside the batter are dead it will never take the charge from the alternather. so you would have to change the batter.

if you would like to know how you can you test both parts useing a volt-a-meter... just ask...

p.s. I think its ur batter if you never changed it. so get that changed for the winter so you wont have any more starting problems during cold wheaters
