the fan relay may have went bad...if the fan doesnt come on the compressor will shut down because of excessive pressure...has he used a test light to check all the fuses under the hood and inside... pay particular attention to fuse 10 in the inside fuse box...if there is no power at all to that fuse it may be in the ignition switch

I found a paritally blown fuse. When the fuse blew metal pieces ended up partially making contact. After replacing the fuse everything worked great.

Do you have an alarm on this? If you do, that is most likely the problem. There seems to be a problem with the alarms. You may want to have a new key made just in case. Sometimes the keys are magnetically charged and after time, it wears off.

First, make sure you can turn the engine by hand. If you can't then the starter can't turn it either. Have someone else turn the key and look for the source of the click...may be a relay. Go over the starting circuit with a volt meter. Check for power at the starter main terminal and then with the key turned to "start" check for power at the trigger terminal on the starter. Check battery voltage and check relay operation.
You have a neutral safety switch on the transmission if its an automatic and a clutch switch if it's a stick. Check them as well. Make sure battery grounding on fender and block are also clean and secure.

Before blaming the starter make sure the battery is fully charged. It should be around 13V.
Starter circuits for the most part operates in the following way. Turning the ignition key supplies power to a relay situated in the engine compartment which in turn activates the solenoid on the starter which powers the starter itself.
Make sure your vehicle is in Neutral(Manual gearbox) or Park(Auto box) Locate the starter motor. On the starter there is another cylinder like object called the solenoid. There is a thick red wire running from the battery connected to this. There is also a much thinner wire which activates the solenoid. To test the starter run a wire from the + on the battery to where the thin wire connects on the solenoid. (ignition must be off) This should activate the starter and turn the engine. If nothing happens the starter is probably at fault. Before removing the starter make sure that the engine is properly earthed as this could also give problems.
If the starter does kick in the problem is further "upstream" Most probable cause would be the relay. If you can locate it, replace since it is relatively cheap.
Starter repair is best left to the experts. Get a quote for a new starter before you have the old one repaired. You'd be surprised at how many times it turns out that replacement costs the same as repair.
Let us know if you've solved the problem.

I have no power for indicators , aircon, windows


Let me guess what kind of car your talking about?
My first guess is a chrysler PT cruiser???
Notorious for this and the problem is in the ignition switch, hate to tell you but you have no airbags either.
The electrical connector is in the power window switch located in dead center of your dash.
the power from the ignition terminal goes directly to this switch and is distributed throughout the above mentioned things that you described as not working.appriciate a rating, Gary

air bag power runs off the same power line you may have a faulty air bag been fitted.it may have burn't out the voltage control unit for the ignition. or the air bag has not been wire'd in properly and its shorted out the trip in the control unit. you will need to remove the air bag, ( battery off car wait 20min ) remove the air bag. and have it tested. there have been a lot of copy air bags been reported and they are more dangerous than they should be cause electrical fires or in an accident they explode in your face. and when explode they do do some damage to your face..... would have this check.

Abs,air bag light on,disengaes my speedometer,ac and power windows


I had the same problem after someone tried to steal my 2000 Dodge Ram truck. I replaced the ignition switch and key tumbler, after that, when I turned the key, the key in ignition chime came on, but when I turned the key, it wouldn't crank, turned out to be the 50amp run fuse under the hood, replaced thar, started right up! But then had the abs and airbag lights on, no speedometer, and no power windows or blower motor! Traced that to the 30amp ign/run fuse under the hood. Didn't look bad, but when I took the little plastic cover off the fuse, I could see the hairline break in the link! Replaced that, and now I'm back to normal! Hope this helps someone out there!

I would suspect a faulty ignition switch causing all the electrical issues. There are 3 distinct circuits running from the ignition switch, it sounds like one of them are faulty and not allowing power to certain circuits. Best to have it diagnosed at a reliable auto shop.

Recently the electric window winder on my BMWZ4 drivers dide was replaced.Since this has happened my airbag light stays on.Could this have been anything done during the winder replacement.


Hi , does your car have a side door air bag ? , if so this would have to be removed to replace the window mechanism and the ignition has probably been turned on with the air bag disconected so the air bag control unit has reconised a open curcuit fault, the warning light will stay on until the fault memory has been cleared , hope this helps , regards mark
