Crank it faster & longer. Make sure it is turned off when you crank it, otherwise you are discharging it as fast as you are charging it.

Engine Cranks But Does Not Run !

VEHICLE CRANK, DOES NOT START Change fuel pump, crank and cam sensor, unable to get orb code


Does yours have a theft deterrent system ? SECURITY light on dash ! Before replacing parts you suppose to test for spark at a spark plug wire . check for fuel pressure . You really should take this to someone who knows what he is doing . You already spent more then it would have cost at the dealer !
The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table is an organized approach to identifying a condition that causes an engine not to start. The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table directs the service technician to the appropriate system diagnosis. In order for the engine to start and run, the correct amount of good quality fuel must be properly delivered to each cylinder. The timing of the valve train operation in relation to piston position is also critical, as is mechanical compression of the air/fuel mixture.
The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table assumes the following:
?€¢
The battery is completely charged. Refer to Battery Inspection/Test in Engine Electrical.


?€¢
The engine cranking speed is acceptable. Refer to Engine Cranks Slowly in Engine Electrical.


?€¢
There is adequate fuel in the fuel tank.


When you turn the key to the on position does the check engine light come on an go off after a few seconds ? Did you check EFI relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . Why are you unable to check for OBD 2 codes ? Don't you have a code reader ?

Service engine soon wont go away!!!!!!!!!


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

My 2007 gmc sierra quit and has no fuel pressure


A lot of GM vehicles will start for a few seconds then turn off, it's due to the VAT System. Vehicle Anti-theft System. The most common procedure to relearn the key to the BMC is to: 1.Put key in turn to the ON position, security light should come on and stay on, wait 10 minutes, light should go out.
2. Turn Key off, wait five seconds.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2; 3 times, it will take you 30 minutes to do this, but I've have multiple vehicles that this solved the problem. It's most common when changing wiring harnesses, BCM's, and steering columns.
4. After the third cycle of turning the key on and off for the appropriate amount of time, you should be able to crank it over and it will stay running.

Keep in mind, this is if you're fighting a computer problem,not general maintenance. Hope this helps!

Recntly I ran out of gas and ever since my 2005 Escape has to crank for 5 seconds before it starts. It used to start immediately as soon as it cranked


It will take a few times to correct itself. There may be air in the lines from when you ran out of gas. But I wouldn't worry about it unless it kicking a engine light or service light.

Nissan maxima won't start by cranking it with the key but will crank if I spray it with starter fluid. Security light also stays on


the immobilizer system is in lock mode. Sometimes cycling the key will bring it out of lock mode. Turn the key to the on position for 5 seconds, then off for 5 seconds for 5 times or more then recheck.
If that doesn't work you may be able to reset the control unit by removing both battery cables and touching them together for a few seconds. This procedure drains the control unit capacitors and they revert to their prelearned values.
