Car wont start but batterys good


A fully charged battery does not mean that its amperage output is adequate, have it tested at an auto parts store. While your problem could be battery, wiring, key switch, solenoid, starter or maybe really cold outside, best to start with simplest first, clean the battery terminals and cable connectors with a terminal brush tool and install anti-corrosion impregnated felt rings on each terminal. With the battery terminals disconnected, also unbolt and clean the solenoid and starter terminals too and re-tighten. Then find the "ground" connections from the negative battery cable to the metal chassis and from the engine to the chassis, unbolt, clean, sand clean each if necessary and reinstall. If when using a voltmeter there is any reading between the engine block and the negative terminal of the battery, installing an extra ground cable directly between the engine block and the negative battery terminal connector. When reinstalling battery terminals, install positive terminal first, place socket slightly larger than battery terminal on top of it and lightly tap to fully seat the cable connector on the battery terminal before tightening. Tighten snug enough that cable connector does not move on the battery terminal, do not over tighten. Beware of battery acid and accumulated corrosion, wear eye protection and protective gloves too and be aware that battery acid eats holes in clothing and cloth gloves. If problem persists, a DC voltmeter most useful to determine if when key turned to start, there is voltage applied to the solenoid. If yes, then to check if solenoid operates upon key turn to "start" applying voltage through solenoid to starter. If yes, and if battery amperage output tested "ok" then starter may need to be replaced.

Cant remove key


Try the reset for the key switch , hook up battery charger or maintainer to battery then turn key on do not crank engine leave key in on position for ten minutes , repeat a total of three times then turn key switch to off position after third cycle then remove key . Then reinstall key to ignition switch then crank the engine over and see if that fixes your issue .

Switch is on, turn key, no signal to starter, no click no contack


COMMON CAUSES OF NO-CRANK NO-START

Low battery (Check battery voltage, recharge if low, or jump start with another vehicle or battery charger).
Loose or corroded battery cables (Inspect, clean and tighten BOTH ends of BOTH battery cables).
Bad starter relay wiring connections or ground connection (Inspect, clean, tighten wiring connections).
Bad starter relay/solenoid (Check for voltage at relay, if relay has voltage but there is no "click" when key is turned to start, replace relay).
Bad starter (Jump battery voltage direct to starter to see if it spins, or remove starter and have it bench tested at auto parts store).
Damaged starter drive or teeth on flywheel (Remove starter and inspect drive gear and flywheel teeth, replace damaged parts if necessary).
Bad ignition switch (Check to see if voltage reaches starter relay/solenoid when turn to start. If not, check for open P/N switch and brake or clutch pedal switch. Replace ignition switch if defective).
Open P/N safety switch, or open Brake Pedal Safety Switch (automatic transmission) or open Clutch Pedal Switch (manual transmission). Bypass switch with jumper wire to see if engine cranks, or use test light or voltmeter to check for voltage passing through switch when ignition is turned to start.
Engine seized due to bearing failure or internal damage (Use socket and long handle to see if engine can be turned by hand, if not engine is locked up).
Engine hydrolocked due to coolant leak from leaky head gasket (Use socket and wrench to see if engine rotates, remove spark plugs and see if coolant comes out or engine can not be cranked with plugs out).

Won;t crank


Hi, if the car engine fails to crank, there is a fault in one of the components in the battery/ignition/starter circuit. Low battery (Check battery voltage, recharge if low, or jump start with another vehicle or battery charger). Bad starter relay/solenoid (Check for voltage at relay, if relay has voltage but there is no "click" when key is turned to start, replace relay). Bad ignition switch (Check to see if voltage reaches starter relay/solenoid when turn to start. If not, check for open P/N switch and brake or clutch pedal switch. Replace ignition switch if defective).

I have a 2003 Saturan Ion that won't start


Hi, this is what you should do when your car won't start. Diagnosing a no-start condition requires a logical approach to figuring out what might be preventing your car from starting. First, if the engine won't even crank over when you turn the ignition to START, your car obviously won't start.
When you turn the ignition key to start your car, voltage from the battery flows through the ignition switch to the Park/Neutral safety switch and/or brake pedal or clutch pedal safety switch (you have to push the pedal down before the circuit will complete) to the starter relay or solenoid. When the relay or solenoid is energized by voltage from the ignition switch circuit, it closes a contact that routes more power from the battery directly to the starter to crank the engine. The starter motor spins, pushes the starter drive gear to engage the flywheel and cranks the engine.

If the engine fails to crank, there is a fault in one of the components in the battery/ignition/starter circuit. Check it out.....
  • Low battery (Check battery voltage, recharge if low, or jump start with another vehicle or battery charger).
  • Loose or corroded battery cables (Inspect, clean and tighten BOTH ends of BOTH battery cables).
  • Bad starter relay wiring connections or ground connection (Inspect, clean, tighten wiring connections).
  • Bad starter relay/solenoid (Check for voltage at relay, if relay has voltage but there is no "click" when key is turned to start, replace relay).
  • Bad starter (Jump battery voltage direct to starter to see if it spins, or remove starter and have it bench tested at auto parts store).
  • Damaged starter drive or teeth on flywheel (Remove starter and inspect drive gear and flywheel teeth, replace damaged parts if necessary).
  • Bad ignition switch (Check to see if voltage reaches starter relay/solenoid when turn to start. If not, check for open P/N switch and brake or clutch pedal switch. Replace ignition switch if defective).
  • Open P/N safety switch, or open Brake Pedal Safety Switch (automatic transmission) or open Clutch Pedal Switch (manual transmission). Bypass switch with jumper wire to see if engine cranks, or use test light or voltmeter to check for voltage passing through switch when ignition is turned to start.
  • Engine seized due to bearing failure or internal damage (Use socket and long handle to see if engine can be turned by hand, if not engine is locked up).
  • Engine hydrolocked due to coolant leak from leaky head gasket (Use socket and wrench to see if engine rotates, remove spark plugs and see if coolant comes out or engine can not be cranked with plugs out).

I have and oldsmobile 2000 intrigue. i changed the computer and now it wont crank when the key is turned and also the security light is flashing constantly how do i reconcile the new computer to the car?


There is a simple procedure for this.
First of all (and VERY IMPORTANT) is to connect the vehicle to a battery charger. Leave the battery charger on during this entire process.
This procedure takes approximately 30 minutes . Make sure the battery is fully charged before proceeding.
  1. Turn the ignition switch off.
  2. Turn the ignition switch all the way from the off to the start position, then leave it in the on position.
NOTE: The engine will not crank.

  1. The SECURITY will come on and stay on for at least 10 minutes . When it goes out, proceed to step 4.
  2. Turn the ignition switch off for five seconds .
  3. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 again for a second time.
  4. Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 again for a third time.
  5. Turn the ignition switch off.
  6. Turn the ignition switch all the way to the start position. The engine should now start.

The bike was running fine in the evening. Rode to work parked the bike took the key out. The battery was dead in the morning. Put the 10 amp charger on and the motor started to turn over with the key off!...


your starter button is malfunctioning. maybe some oxidation in the switch. when starter button is pressed in that can cause your other electrical stuff to not work.

Ignition switch won't turn with key-so won't start


How old is your key? An old key can give you real grief. Also, do you have to press brake to release ignition lock? Its doubtful that a dead battery would cause your car iginition not to turn, but try jumping car with engine off and see if that helps. Unless you heard a loud pop or saw a spark I don't think you messed anything up. Try disconnecting the cigarette lighter when starting and see if that helps too. Check voltage on the battery, should be between 13-15 V or so when car is off. Lower than that and u need to replace battery, even though that won't necessarily solve issue you're having now.
hope this helps
