Sounds like a flat battery. Have you tried jump starting the engine?

    Charged it a little

    Try a jump start from another car.If your engine then cranks over you either have faulty battery ,a faulty alternator or a loose fan belt.If all of these things prove ok then your problem lies with the starter motor.Good luck and let me know how you get on.

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.

What happens when a knock sensor isnt working ?


If the knock sensor isn't working it isn't a real problem IF the engine isn't knocking. The sensor detects the faint pinging that comes before engine knock and sends a signal to the ECM which then begins to ****** timing until no pinging is reported by the sensor. If you do have knock and the sensor isn't working you can severely damage your engine.

Have a 2000 GMC Yukon Denali. Won't fire.


Make sure that the belt isn't extremely tight and they the belt tensioner isn't liked up by pulling in the belt. It should move and spring right back. Make sure engine isn't locked up. And please explain what happen with the vehicle. The fact that you replace plugs and wires and fuel filter for a car that's not turning is throwing me off. So right now we are going all over the place. But definite look at belt and tensioner I've seen a few times that a bad tensioner will make the belt wrap around tighter inhibiting the engine from turning.

Turns over but won't fire


If a starter is able to crank the engine but it won't start you usually have either an electrical or fuel problem. It's also remotely possibly that it's compression.If an engine has proper fuel, spark and compression, it will start when you crank it. So your challange is to find out which part isn't working right. Start with fuel. Spray a little starting fluid into the air intake while someone tries to start the engine. If it starts briefly when you're spraying starting fluid, you probably have a fuel delivery problem. That could be injectors, fuel pump, fuel filter, relay, fuse... who knows what until you check into it.If it doesn't start with starting fluid, check the spark. Pull a plug wire and attach it to a spare sparkplug and set the plug on a solid metal part of the engine. Have a helper crank the engine while you watch the plug. If you have a good spark, it might just be out of timing.In any case, you'll need to start isolating the problem. Find out which part isn't working then you'll know what to replace/repair.

AC clutch not engaging fuse or frozen clutch?


You could find out if the clutch is frozen or not by turning it by hand. Engine off. If not frozen it could be the fuse or it could be that there isn't enough refrigerant in the system. Also it is possible tHat the switch isn't working, check the relay too.

Why does my 91 ford econoline over heat when I turn my heat on?


I've been working a similar issue with a friends truck. When the heater blower motor is off the engine temperature gauge reads normal in the middle. But when you turn the blower motor on the gauge goes way up to the top. The engine isn't really overheating. There is an electrical problem that when you turn the blower on it is affecting the temperature gauge and making it go all the way up off-scale. So far we've found that the blower motor speed control resistor is bad. We replaced that and the speed control works now, except for the low speed setting. I suspect there is a bad ground somewhere and the bottom end of the resistor element isn't grounded anymore. As such too much current is going through the ground in the dash, which is affecting the gauge.
