    My car has a brand new battery & I went to start it and it would not start. The interior items worked very poorly for a few minutes so I thought my battery was somehow dead again. I went back to my car a few hours later & it started immediately. A Few days later I was driving & lost some power & all the instrument panel items started flashing & moving for a minute or less and were fine again. Then it would not start again today. I believe it is some sort of wiring issue. please advise. Thanks

The positive is attached to the starter relay on the back of the starter. The negative is attached to the block as a ground.

My positve battery cabel was loose, when i tighten it, the starter was trying to tun over with out the key in the ignition.


When you tightened the battery connection you may have twisted the cable on the starter and shorted it to the solonoid lead causing the starter to engage . Check the connections on the starter and make sure there are not touching each other. Hope this helps.

91 buick was running good cleaned battery cabels now will not start no spark


Hello,
1.Make sure all connection to the battery are secure opposite end of pos/neg connections connecting to the starter and and ground are also secure and clean..
2.Try jump starting the car.
3.If step one or two did not correct the problem, have the battery tested and re-charge the or replace the battery if required.
4.If the above three steps do not correct the problem, before starting the car, gently tap on the starter with a small hammer, then try and start the car. If the car starts, you have a faulty solenoid in the starter, which indicates the starter needs to be replace. Please rate this solution if you found this helpful.

Good battery, will not start (sometimes)


Check the battery terminals for corrosion or looseness. If they are tight and free of corrosion then you probably have a bad terminal on the end of the battery cable. Hope this helps. Good luck
