You need to recharge the battery or replace it. Does it work when plugged in with an AC adapter?

    If you have warranty, get them to look at it. Sounds like either a faulty power supply or the internal motherboard battery. If you need help with anything, let me know.

Hello, I have a 2005 Chrysler 300 and it wont start. I changed the battery in my key and it wont start. Initially it would start and shut right off. Now it wont do anything. I had to push it across the...


it started for two seconds and shut off because the immobilizer is active. those fobs are notorious for having bad contacts to their batteries, if you look closely you will probably find that one of the contacts for the battery has come loose. unlock the car with the key itself and it will probably run because there is a switch on the driver's door lock which disables the immobilizer. your lights are flashing because your battery is dead or there is a poor connection to the battery somewhere. get a jump start.

My 1997 chevrolet cavalier (standard) wont do anything when I turn the key to start. The battery is good. It was doing just fine. When I stopped and tried to turn it off the key would not turn off. Finally...


check the linkage rod between the ignition key switch and the electrical ignition switch itself for movement when you turn the key from off to start. if it doesn't move then you probably have a broken ratchet gear or rack gear in the steering column at the ignition key switch. if it does move that you probably have a bad electrical ignition switch.

1999 chevy lumina turn key and nothing happens, no click or anything. Battery OK Help please


Check your fuse panels first, and make sure none are blown. There should be one under the hood somewhere and one inside the car. If they are all ok, then it may be a fusible link in the power supply wire that goes from the battery to the starter, or you could have a faulty igntion switch(not the part you put the key, but an electrical part that is either inside behind the key switch or mounted below it on the steering column. Or it could be a faulty starter solenoid on the starter itself. Or the wires on the starter are loose.

Abnormally Switches off


I'm afraid that this sounds like either a fuse, capacitors or a blown relay on the motherboard. Otherwise, it could also have something to do with some kind of problem involving the battery.

First and foremost, take the battery out of the system before doing anything else. See what happens without the battery in the laptop. If the problem seems to be solved by doing so by some chance, then you probably have a short in the battery itself. (Which would explain the issue.)

Beyond that, the most I can advise on is checking the power settings in your BIOS as quickly as you possibly can before it shuts off. See if there is anything in particular that might have an effect on the system's operation. I would disable any power-saving features and such... Just to cut those unnecessary variables out of the equation.

See if you can get it into the BIOS...and see if it still shuts down once it is in the BIOS. (No doubt it will... It wouldn't make ANY sense if it didn't, now would it?)

Try those things for now... But do NOT rate me if this does not fix your laptop. Remember that we are here to TRY our best to provide a solution. This is not meant to be a solution.

This is meant to find a cause for the problem. Only THEN can we give any kind of solid solution or conclusion.

Either way, I ask that you wait to rate me until after we follow these steps and I give you my conclusions. If the laptop is fragged, I ask that you give me a fair rating based on my attempt. Not based on the fact that I could not fix your laptop.

Remember that hardware failure is NOT OUR FAULT. We tried to help either way.

Thanks and let me know what happens. K?
