The battery is charged up, but still remains suspect, because a failing battery cannot hold enough oomph to crank the motor, even after charging. So -

- failing battery, especially if 3 yrs old or more
- worn starter solenoid contacts
- failed starter solenoid coil
- dead spot in starter motor windings
- bad contact at either end of battery ground strap

There is a crude test. Turn on the headlights and try to crank the motor. If the lights dim down a lot, it is the battery at fault.

Check all the fuses and fusible links,the links are most likely on the starter.

Won't start lights on the dash flashing on and off no management light on


Sounds like the battery or the alternator
Usually has to do with the voltage regulator in the alternator.
That tells it where to put the power and how much output to put.
If the voltage starts to fail it will put the power to the most important parts which is the engine and it will make your lights flicker.

Battery dies unless positive cable is disconnected & then reconnected to start it.


Could still be your starter relay or starter itself. Turn your headlights on and then crank. Do headlights dim greatly when cranking?

I replaced the battery terminal cable ends. Now the car will not start, There is a clicking noise from the starter.


Bad connection on cable ends or where they connect to battery. Quick check is if you have a good set of jumper cables, use the jumper cable as a replacement for what maybe the defective one. Hook negative cable good to battery neg. post and then put other side on neg cable to engine ground on block. See if it cranks, if it does than the trouble is on the neg. cable. If not then put positive cable on pos. post of battery. Then put other side of pos. cable on the starter post, try to start. If it cranks then the trouble is on the pos side of cable. Hope this helps.

You've got a good start measuring the voltage at the battery. Looks like you've got a low voltage problem. Common on the GM side post batteries is battery acid leaking at the positive battery cable post on the battery. I would recommend removing and checking the cables/posts on the battery. If everything is clean, reassemble the battery cables to the battery. If there is excessive wetness or corrosion on EITHER of the cables/posts, you should replace the battery first, and clean the cables. A leaking battery is going to give you more trouble down the road if you just clean it. If the battery connections on the existing battery are clean, charge the battery with a battery charger, or jump start the car. Use your trusty meter and measure voltage at the battery with the engine running. (Also do this if you replace the battery for leaks). You should read in the neighborhood of 13.5 - 14.0 volts if your charging system is working correctly. If you are reading in the low 12 volt range with the engine running, something is wrong with your charging system, and most likely putting a strain on the battery, preventing it from receiving the charge it needs. If your existing battery is not leaking, cables are clean and tight, jump starts okay, reads 13.5-14ish volts with the engine running, but refuses to crank the engine over after the engine runs for about 15-20 minutes, it's time for a new battery.

Car won't start and arms alarm when I turn the ignition


Dead battery armed the security system. Remove the battery cable let the system reset. Charge the battery. Use the key to unlock the door instead of the keyless entry. This resets the alarm once the battery is charged.

2001 mercury cougar can't get car to start alarm light lit and steady what do I do


sounds like your alarm is preventing the car from starting.

you can disconnect your negative battery cable, and wait about 10 minutes. put the key in the ignition and turn it to the ON position, but NOT to the START position. reconnet the battery cable CAREFULLY with the key ON, and the driver's side door OPEN. your alarm should "chirp" a few times, while reconnecting the battery. afterwards, try to start the car when the battery is tightly connected.

if the car still refuses to start, use the "panic" feature on your remote, to intentionally set off your alarm, and then turn it back off, to make sure it stops properly.

if this does not work, remove the fuse for your alarm, and try to start the car again without the fuse in place.....otherwise replace the fise and remove the pwoer connector from your alarm.

your actual alarm should be behind the trim plate, on the bottom side of your dash, above your gas and brake pedals....then try to start the car AGAIN....

if none of this works, then your alarm is defective and needs to be serviced be the installer, or manufacturer. also, calling the manufacturer will help too, as they have "reset and disable" features that can literally "bypass" your alarm.

How do i check starter voltage on 1995 7.3 Ford F250? The batteries are less than a year old. They are being drained frequently. Today truck will not crank. Starter checked out by mech.


Sounds like you have something else draining battery. Possibilities include the alternator. For starter cranking voltage place the positive lead of voltmeter on positive of battery and the negative on the other. Disable fuel, then crank for 15 seconds and read volts while cranking. This is your cranking voltage. For voltage drop on cables, place positive on battery positive and negative at battery cable on starter. Crank 15 seconds. This should be less than .5 volts. The same can be done with any cable or wire in the starting or charging circuit of a vehicle. Just place the positive on positive or negative on negative, with the other lead at the opposite end of the cable being tested. In charging diagnostics, you will get the charging system operating with the engine running while you do the readings. I suggest though, that you do a parasitic drain check. If you disconnect the positive cable of the battery and place a test light in series (one end to battery, the other to the cable), you should have a very dim light to no light. If the light is bright, you have a drain. Proceed by making sure everything is off and there are no dome or hood lights on. Start removing fuses one at a time until the light goes out or gets very dim. Replace each one after you check it to avoid having a pile of fuses to put back. Also disconnect the alternator wiring to eliminate this possibility. A fried regulator may feed voltage to the fields all night if it's shorted. This will drain both batteries in relatively short time.
