Good battery but won't run. Have a second that works fine w same battery. What do I check first?

Battery cable corrosion. If side post battery cut off the rubber all the way around where bolt goes through eyelet of terminal to gain full access to backside of terminal, they are always corroded due to the rubber collecting and holding the moisture. Also. Turn key on , did check engine light come on? If not then take it to a dealer as modules have lost communication. If stayed on solid for about three seconds, equals no codes present. If blinks then pending codes, not set enough or emission related codes present, then need codes read. Oreliey's auto parts will do it free. Does starter turn over. If not then start starting and charging diagnosis. If it does then it may be a thrift deturrent code. Some Chevy's have security located in dash or one corner of the radio. When turn key if comes on solid and goes out then its OK. If blinks then goes out means pending code and blinks continuously or solid illumination of anti thrift light then its in lock out mode and computer thinks your tryinhg to steal it. Most of the time the ignition cylinder tumbler needs replaced for hall effect switch errors. Or dodge keyless vehicle , does not use metal let, then its usually the wireless control module. Or the computer you stick the key into to start vehicle. What lights on dash? When key turned to start do u hear click? Relay or bendex for the starter?

Does it look simular to this?


That is the check engine light. It is entirely possible for the vehicle to run perfectly fine when this light is on.

To find out why the light is on you can have the computer scanned for codes. Your local auto parts store may do this for free. You can buy an inexpensive code reader and do it yourself, or you can visit your local auto repair shop and have them run a diagnosis.

Once you know the code(s) you will have a much better idea of what is causing the light to come on.

Major auto parts stores have code readers and will read out your codes for free. The engine light indicates that at least one code is waiting to be read.

The check engine light comes on from time to time, goes off some of the time, has little shake when first starts, but otherwise runs fine

When a check engine light comes on, even if it goes off, it still sets a code that stays in the vehicles computer. I suggest taking your vehicle to Autozone(or similar part store) and take advantage of their free computer diagnosis. They can print you off a receipt with the codes as well as the most likely causes and solutions. This would be a great starting point.

Check engine light is on and ECU blings 12 times.

Can't take an OBD-0/pre-OBD car to auto zone as only OBD-2 cars have a hook up for the scanner.

High beam headligts will not come on + no dash

Sounds like a bad switch to me. If it was a relay,it would not work period.Not to mention, the switch controls the dash lights too.

1985 S10 Blazer; Choke light comes on, overcharge indicated

As for your choke problem--- Check for blown fuse under dash labeled as choke. If ok then check for faulty fuseable link at starter.
