have a load test done on the battery for failing cell and have the output of the alternator checked as if the battery is faulty then the alternator has trouble supplying enough current to run every thing electrical
Even though all your other electrical bits are working it could be that your battery doesn't have enough juice to crank the engine. It doesn't take much power to run the radio, lights, etc, but cranking the engine requires the battery to have a very strong charge. If your battery is more than 5 years old, that's very likely the issue. I'd start there. Also, be sure to check the battery terminals and ground for corrosion and clean if necessary. If replacing the battery doesn't solve the problem it could be the starter solenoid or a loose electrical connection somewhere.
the battery may be faulty,just because the lights & horn work doesn't mean that the battery is enough power to start the engine the battery may have a weak sell that breaks down when you engage the starter try turning the headlights on & then try to start the engine & see how dull the headlights become,if they almost go out the battery is very low or faulty......hope this helps......cheers.
1. check the battery if its charged or not by blowing the horn.
2. if the battery is ok try crank the engine if it doesnt crank then you have a starter problem.
3. after you crank the engine check if you have enough fuel on your tank.
4. if it wont start check the ignition system for electrical supply on your spark plugs and if everything fails you got to let a mechanic check your car.
I am restoring a 1982 Yamaha Virago 750. The OEM horns were shot so I replaced them with standard 12 automotive horns. The problem is that when I push tht horn button with both horns connected, the system won't deliver enough power to run them. However if I disconnect either horn, the other one will work. It seems like the system can't deliver enough current for one. If I connect the two horns direct to the battery they work jsut fine. Is this an electrical system problem (diode, regulator, horn switch, bad ground?) or should I rewire with an aftermarket relay for the horns?
Don't know if this has anything to do with your problem, but it could be worth a try. My 2001 turbo had a similar problem when it was low on oil. The oil light never came on, but it was low enough to cause it to stall. Seems there has to be enough oil circulating on the camshaft (I think they told me the camshaft, now it has been so long that I am not positive). Either way, a quart and a half of oil solved my stalling problem. And the problem got bad enough before I had it towed to the VW shop that it wouldn't start, very much like it had a dead battery or an electrical (starter/ignition) problem, but i still had plenty of power for horn, lights, radio, etc.
