2007 fiat grande punto 1.4 dynamic 5 door starting problems

is engine turning over but not firing if so then i think that this combined with the fact you had a low battery it could have damaged the ECU but to confirm this you will have to back it to a dealer who has access to the dealer service network via the internet ,sorry to give you the bad news it may not even show any engine light fault thats readable.If all this started after a flat battery and a jump start then it could be a classic syndrome applicable to a lot of newer cars ,

I have a 98 chevrolet 350 eng (spider) 2500. I am not getting no fire from the ignition to the starter. I have a new starter, but can jump start to turn the engine over. Which wire or color scheme goes...

Check to see if the battery is charged, check the cables for corroision--look for corrosion on the cable, may have to peel back the rubber on ends to see. If you can jump it this means you are not getting what you need from your battery, .

Tried to jump start car with leads, battery sparked. lights work but engine wont start

Either you have a completly dead batt. or your starter is shot.. You can not jump a car with a flat dead Batt. but a BOOST PACK's all about the AMPERAGE.

Left lights on all night. Having a problem jump starting it

First make sure the last cable is the ground cable,when you place it you should see a very small spark just before you let go for the connection to be complete.IF the attempted jump fails you probably need a new battery,the old one just doesn't have it any more.

98 Audi A6, Battery died overnight, when jumping smoke rises

Sounds like the alternator is badly damaged. The alternator will drain the battery if the regulutor or diode assembly goes out and/or the alternator is seized or locking up, which will cause the smoke (belt slippage) and drag on the engine (rough idle).

5 miles is not enough to recharge battery. Have battery completely recharged or take it to major auto parts store where they can test battery,
What caused battery to go "flat"? Did you leave dome light on?
