Check for oil pressure sensor. Replace if loose.

SOURCE: 1998 Honda Goldwing will not start nothing.

Sort of sounds like a Twilight Zone kind of problem doesn't it. I would have the battery checked for an internal dead short. This is something that happens on odd occasions and can happen even to a new battery. Yea, the little lights will work ( they do not draw much juice ), but the starter motor draws a lot of juice and a shorted battery just ain't got it. Also check the wiring harness connections. One loose connection can cause bunches of trouble.

SOURCE: hot start lever siezed in plunger of crf 250 x carburettor

have had the same problem many times. spray carb cleaner into hole where the brass plunger is located give it a little time to let the cleaner work. put some force on the cable it may come out if not remove the cable at the other end so you can remove carb to work on it

SOURCE: 2005 Honda Goldwing- Electrical issue. Bright

sounds like a wire has been added the wrong way or wires have damage, switch could be the culprit. Does the kill switch work? I would be checking all wires and the conectors for heat damage (melting).And fuses for all circuts. if low beam is used does key work to stop engine?

SOURCE: DOES THE ENGINE TEMP LIGHT SWITCH HAVE TO COME ON

most likely just a broken light globe, try replacing that first, second it could be a faulty temp sensor switch.
But i do not think it should light up when you turn the key on. only when the engine gets over hot.

My 91 Acura legond moter cranks over but won't start


Engines need 3 things to run-spark, compression and fuel/air. Check the simplest things first. When you turn the key and the warning lights come on, does the check engine light come on? It should turn off in 6 seconds, if everything's ok. I Check the air filter, make sure it isn't plugged up. Take off the oil fill cap, and look in. I believe you can see the rocker/cam, use a flashlight. Have someone crank the engine with the key, see if the cam turns, rocker moves. If not, broken timing belt. Next remove an igniter, put a plug in it, have it plugged in and hold the plug near a ground. Have it cranked, check for spark. If no spark, it needs more professional diagnostics. If yes, Fuel is left. If you sit in the drivers seat, windows up and quiet, turn the key to run, all the warning lights come on. The fuel pump runs for 2 seconds, a low hum from the back. You can usually here it if it is quiet around you. (Just because it makes noise, doesn't mean it's good.) Your car also has a main relay that powers the fuel pump, a common failure. Last thing to try is starting fluid sprayed into the throttle, throttle open 1/2 way, while someone cranks.
One of these should lead you to the failure. Note: the main relay is powered by the ignition system, except for that initial 2 seconds. So if there is no spark, the fuel pump won't work either.

Yesterday My 1997 xj6 would not turn over, all dash lights came on but when the key was turned to start nothing happened, no click from the solenoid, the other thing I noticed was the interior lights did...


Just a shot in the dark. If your key has the magnetic chip in it, the chip may be week. Try another key if you have one.
We have a key without a chip in it we hide under the car. It will turn the ignition but will not crank(dealer told us that). One more thing the dealer who made the key told us not to try cranking the car with it because the car could think someone is stealing it and shut down till a dealer input codes to allow the car to run again.

2003 gmc savanna, wont start, new fuel pump and ignition cylinder, I turned key to on position, let sit for 15 min and still wont start just turns over


Find fuel test valve in fuel rail on top of engine. Take cap off valve. Turn key on. Push down valve with screw driver. fuel should squirt out. If not check fuse fuel pressure relay and bad wires. If fuel does come out, remove a spark plug from engine. Connect plug wire to plug. Ground plug against engine. Crank over engine and look for spark.

MY PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER 'S HEADLIGHT'S AND DASH LIGHTS WORK, BUT THE ENGINE WON'T TURN OVER. THERE IS NO SPARK COMING FROM THE ELECTRICAL WIRES.


When you say no spark, are you talking about the spark plugs, or just the general wiring?

If the engine won't turn over, then it isn't moving, and if it isn't moving then you need to check the following in this order:

1) Does the battery have power i.e. around 12.4 volts or over?No? Charge, test or replace battery.

2) Do the car's head lights dim considerably if turned on when attempting to crank? Yes? Possible lack of battery charge or faulty battery.

3) Assuming the battery is fine, can you turn the dash warning lights on and off with the key? No? Faulty ignition switch.

4) Is there a click sound when you turn the key, but no starter motor spin? Check starter motor connections or replace starter motor.


If none of the above prove to be of help, then please report.

When i turn the key the lights come on but the car wont start why is that? i tried to get a boost and while the boost is occuring car lights come on but car still wont start and when the boost is off car...


sounds like you have a bad starter. If you can see the starter have someone bang on it while you turn the key. it might start. if it does you still need to replace the starter. Make sure the cables going to the starter are clean and tight.

Won't turn over


This also seems to be a ground problem, Verify connectios specially the ones at the battery. Also check for belt tension and alternator output in order to keep battery charged.
