Sounds like either a sticky solinoid in the starter motor OR a faulty solinoid at the base of the gear selector.

1st try tapping the starter motor with a metal objecy eg screwdriver while someone else attempts to start. if it turns over you need to remove the startermotor & service. OR

If it's the selector solinoid try shifting the gear shift up & down while starting. if it turns then you need to replace the solinoid. or you can bypass it. just ask & i'll tell you how. hope this helps.

Unfortunatly you will have to complete what is called a drive cycle - it is the only way for the computer to recognize all aspects of the state of the vehicle. It sucks but you have to do it - take it from a mechanic that had to take hours getting a test to pass

The battary keeps drianing max one day then the battary goes flat

Either your battery itself is to blame, or you have something that's drawing power even when the car is not running. You can disconnect the battery overnight, then reconnect it in the morning to see which problem you have (i.e., if the car starts, your problem is a power draw; if not, it's the battery). Your best bet though it to have an auto shop test the battery for you.

First make sure the terminal and posts are clean and greased.

Then make sure the alternator belt is tight.

The type of battery makes no difference as long as it fits.

What matters is whether or not the alternator is putting out 13.5 volts or higher, in order to keep the battery at 12.5 volts. Put a voltmeter on the battery and rev the engine.

The battary is good but some reason the battary is not chargeing

Hi, You have a bad alternator and or regulator. Many places will test these for free. Drive to a parts store and ask to watch them test you're electrical system. You have a two part charging system. One is the Alternator the other is the regulator. These are many times made into to one intricate system or ONE PIECE that must be replaced both at the same time. Please have your system checked before and after replacing the alternator/regulator. If you have an Advance Auto near you - or Auto Zone - call first and ask if they will check your alternator for proper operation e4bcbf3.jpg
