The problem sounds like it is how the starter works. It starts and afte a few seconds it does a system check to see if the car started and if works right it will continue to leave the car on and if not it trys 2 more times to start and stay on. Most techs use voltage sense or a virtual tach signal to do the system check. I have found that the best way to have the starter work and stay on is by hooking up the tach signal and making sure the options are set for system check ON and Tach signal check on.

I would be looking for the following: If it'an automatic, while it is acting up put it in neutral and see if the starter works? If so, either poor connections to or bad neutral safety switch.

This car also uses a starter relay. According to my data base, it is located foreward of the right front shock tower and the second one in from the engine side.

Check for solid grounds from the battery to the engine. Corroded connections will peform worse when they are cold, sometimes, even causing an open circuit.

I hope this has pointed you somewhere in the direction you need to be looking

03 aprilia Mille doesn't start. Sometimes it turns

Hi, Aleksandr and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

Look at your battery terminals and see if there is corrosion. I had the same problem with my 06 pt. It turned out that the positive cable going to the starter was corroded internally. was replaced and now no more hard starting.

Sounds more like a low voltage current flow in the ground circuit(harness).
Or the voltage output from ignition switch.
If No check engine light ever came on, or is not on, then the PCM/ECM is telling us there is No fault anywhere,
TCM-automatic transmission computer- uses VSS- vehicle speed sensor, to know when to shift gears.
A low input power to any of these control modules would result in lack of performance
Rough shifting could be caused by low fluid level

1. Check all fuses
2. ensure the battery cables are tight.
3. Check negative from battery has ground to frame rail
4. Check Transmission Fluid Level.

If you notice other symtoms, or situation continues, please post back

My 2004 330ci won't start, does not turn over. The battery is fine, all electrical in the car work fine, plus trying to jump car does not work & a green light is showing on the battery in the truck....

If the battery is fine, why jump it? Faulty thinking to state or think: all electrical in the car work fine. If it did the starter motor would be turning the engine over. The starter motor work on electrical...not all is fine.

check: 1) 60a starter fuse/relay. 2) voltage to starter when turning key to activate starter motor, this will rule out ignition switch or relay. 3) apply direct voltage to starter motor to detect bad starter motor.

My 2008 1100 silverado will not start all lights work it has been sitting a week

Howdy: I have a Vstar and I use a ticklier battery charger if my bike will set for a week or longer. The lights will work but just not enough juice to turn over. Once started the bike will recharde at a high idle. Be sure to only use a 1.5 to 2 amp charger. Sometimes Harbor Freight will have chargers cheap. Your battery should last 3 or more years. For a new battery go to Battery Plus. Ride safe- Doug

Haven't used mouse in a while. Green light on


Yes, new batteries should correct this problem for you. It's recommended if you will not use the mouse for more than 2 weeks, take the batteries out.

Good luck
