Your alternator isn't charging your batter and needs to be replaced, your battery no longer holds a charge or doesn't have enough cranking amps for the application and that only applies if you aren't playing your music without the motor running. If you play music without the motor running it's going to drain your battery, sure, it'll still play music but the amps will be too low to turn the motor over fast enough to catch the timing on the motor in order to start it. Winter is hard on batteries as well, that's why they have cranking amps and cold cranking amps.

turn over or run
turning over is cranking but not starting/running
not turning over indicates seized motor , bad battery starter motor problems , bad ground
turning over is cranking but not starting ---broken timing belt/chain, crank/cam position sensors , no fuel , no spark , no injector operation
best run the fault codes as the fauty will be recorded there

I change the angine on my 07 honda civic and it wont crank


this could be a myriad of issues. go back through the wiring harness an check connections. also check timing belt to make sure valve timing is correct. there is a cam AND crank sensor on that car and if the timing is off one tooth itll cause ignition issues.

99 mitsubishi mirage just died as i was driveing. now wont crank, sounds like timing is off. Any suggestions


If the car dies like you flipped a killswitch and wont even try to crank the motor I would definitely lean toward the ignition switch in the steering column is fried. Once it shorts out the car dies and wont crank.
