2004 escalade won't start battery good and starter good but when i turn the key it doesn't even attempt to crank.

I tried jumping the starter relay and it cranks but no start. I'm wondering if the anti-theft system is locked.

Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. Click on the link for diagram. The starter relay has two sides, the switch side and control side, the control side is left side of relay in diagram. The control side needs voltage and ground, in the diagram, control side, top wire is voltage and bottom is ground, grounded by pcm. I looked at your security system, it said passlock, usually passlock is just fuel injector disable, but, I can't be positive about your vehicle.

SOURCE: 1997 ES 300 How to reset anti-theft system when car won't start

With the doors shut, insert the key into the drivers door lock. Lock and unlock the door 5 times. This should reset the system. If that doesn't work you should contact a qualified repair shop.

SOURCE: 2000 ford windstar won't crank over,but pats keys good, and batt.

First thing I would check is to see if you have power at the trigger wire of the starter motor while someone is trying to start the vehicle for you. It will be a Yellow with a light blue trace. If you do then I would check to see if the main battery cable has power to it all the time when someone is trying to crank it. If it does then I would hold a test light on the case of the starter motor and have someone try to crank it. Make sure that the ground you use for this test is on the negative battery terminal not just anywhere on the car. If the test light lights while you are cranking it then you have a bad ground. Hook up a set of jumper cables from the battery negative terminal and clamp it directly on to your starter motor and see if it starts. If you check it and the test light doesn't light up and all the other checks are good then your starter motor has failed. If one of the other tests has failed then you have a starter relay problem or something else. let me know what you find out.

SOURCE: anti theft dash light is blinking on my 1998 rodeo

I'm assuming its an original alarm or system that came from factory or dealer. When the light blinks is because the alarm is activated. Look underneath the radio the alarm brain might be there. There will be a label on it saying alarm or security system etc. Disconnect the harness to it and try operating your vehicle.

SOURCE: 2004 F-250, 5.4l gas. Won't start or even crank.

are you referring to the starter relay on the firewall? the voltage should drop to 0 when measuring across the signal path because the connection is made, essentially making it a piece of wire and there is no difference in potential between the two points. is there 12v to the starter motor? is the starter solenoid (located on the starter) receiving 12v? check fuses and fusible links. disconnect hot leads from the starter. remove the starter, and supply 12v directly to the motor. does the pinon gear extend and spin? starter.

Remote works for everything but vehicle will not start


Does it try to crank, or is there no response when you turn the key?

If it tries to crank but can't turn over it is probably the battery, and might be the starter. If it is close to cranking, make sure the headlights and air conditioning are off when you try to start it. If the battery is dead you can get a jump or take it to an auto parts store to have it charged, most will do it free (autozone for one). If the car still won't start after getting a jump or a new battery, it is likely the starter.

If there is no response at all when you turn the key, I'm not sure. Check the fuses. Maybe the fuse or relay going to the starter is blown. Maybe there is some advanced security feature like an RFID key that has failed.

1994 cadillac deville no crank


The PATS security system would prevent the engine from cranking if the system does not "see" the right chip in your key. If the system is working correctly, the light should go off after you turn the key switch on.
You should have power on the small starter wire when the key switch is in the start position.

it wont crank even with a good battery (charged) or jump started.
1: bad start

so hot wire the starter small wire, the key start line is tiny.

if it cranks hot wired, then the key line is dead.

Replaced the fuel pump on 97 dodge mini caravan now motor wont crank like the battery is dead. tried jumping it - nothing. All lights work bright! What did I do wrong?


I would check the starter for voltage first - there is a starter relay that is grounded by the PCM. If the ASD relay is faulty the pcm won't have power. You should have battery power to the starter and power on the solenoid when you turn the key to start.

2004 chevy tahoe won't turnover or start by being jumped


The ignition start circuit is the path from the ignition key in cranking mode to the solenoid on the starter. The path travels through a starter relay and a neutral safety switch before it reaches the starter.
This must be the circuit not working on your car.Make sure battery and starter connections are tight.Check for power at the starter solenoid terminal with a testlight when someone turns key to crank. If you have power there, they sold you a defective starter. If you have no power there then it could be the relay or the neutral safety switch.

I have a 2004 Ford Explorer and when you turn the key it won't do anything. I have had the battery, starter, fuses, ignition, and relays all checked and they're all good. I even tried jumping the...


Hello, What you are saying is the starter will turn if you jump the starter Relay. If you want to try this a second time, make sure the Ignition switch is in the RUN position. It should start.

Be sure to have the vehicle in Park. There are some Interlocks in the gearshift and Brake pedal that prevent when certain things happen. When your vehicle is in Park or Neutral, the power wire from the Ignition switch can make a connection to the wire that controls the starter Relay.

But first this wire has to get the okay from the Interlock switch, that the gearshift IS either in Park or Neutral. If this switch is bad or misaligned, the connection will not reach the starter Relay. You need to take off the small wire at the starter Relay and hook up a test light or meter. Then turn your Ignition key to START. The small wire should have power when the key is held in the start position.

If the small wire does not have power, then everything connected to that wire needs to be traced back to the Keyswitch. The cables or rods that move in the gearshift or steering column may be out of adjustment. Not too expensive to correct.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.
