My 97 Sonoma starts, doesn't start. It jumps easily. When I turn the key, I get nothing - no dashboard lights, no engine crank.


Do the dash lights come on with the jumper cables? Did someone connect the jumper cables backwards? Sounds like a main fuse blown. Check the plastic fuse box under the hood near the battery on top of the inner fender. All power to the truck begins there. Check for large fuses 30 amp to 60amp. check everything in that box, relays too.

Saturn jumper cables hooked up backwards


Try charging the battery more. Even though your lights may come one, starting a vehicle requires massive amounts of amperage from the batter. It's possible that your jumper cables aren't a thick enough guage to supply enough power as well. Sometimes the vehicle you're jumping from might not have enough power to support your vehicle's starting power requirements.

Ran oil out in 2005 chevy equinox. it stalled and died while i was driving it. had it towed home. it would crank over, but wouldn't start. finally battery went dead. jumped it, but idiot on the other...


if you own a charger, connect it to your battery and charge to full.. then disconnect the negative with the key on..this kills the entire car computer and all..shut the key off and reconnect the negative cable tight..turn the key to the on position DO NOT TRY TO START.. let all the dash indicators go out first..then try to start..otherwise all the codes held in the computer need erased..may require the help of an auto electric shop..or parts store..

Car wont start or crank nothing works total silence


Check battery connections. or battery. Try jumping it with a booster box or jumper cables. If nothing. Check your main fuse, it should be located in the black box under your hood. It is the huge fuse, (also could locate in the owner manual)

Hooked up jumper cables backwards .fried main fuse replaced it everything comes on but when i turn ignition switch nothing happens no power drain no clicking starter does not turn over what other comp


The short answer is no. The PCM would not control the starter.
I would look for more fuses or fuseable link wires. There should be more than one major fused circuit.
If the key switch was on when you connected the jumper cables anything that was "on" would have been cooked, including the ignition switch.
is the battery good enough to crank the engine ?
