Engine wont crank, no fuel pump running but has ignition. ETC light stays on longer than bulb check should.
no crank, is basic starter path failure
the lamps are useless here,
ill guess automatic trans.....
forget pump, just starter.
does it crank in neutral as instructed in the oper,guide?
if yes, park switch
no, the jumper cable crank engine, does it crank now.?
yes, battery was dead, or lugs corroded green
no? then clean lugs, rpeat
no? the starter bad or key line bad
HOT WIRE THE STARTER At solenoid(keys in pocket)
no crank with good battery,starter is bad. (or possible cables)
yes, crank well now you know your starters good in 5min.work
this means the KEY line is dead.
id scan the pcm now or first,is better.
some cars have starter relay
what happens is the PRNDL switch in the trans
in P or N , energizes said relay allowing the key line 12v reach said starter small lug.
only $10 voltmeter i see the cause fast.
the key in must be 11v or more. cranking.
if 0 or real low bad line, 8v the solenoid chatters.so....
ending my secrets now..
no tools? nor meter?
charge your battery?> have some one charge it and test it.?
jumper cable crank it(call AAA TOW?)
USE a known good battery from other car yet.
all fail check key line
hit starter on side with hammer? (sorry a tool)
btw dead batteries fail all tests. so charge it first then test it or be out $130 for nuttn.
(makes car stores rich, not now..)
