SOURCE: car not starting

First off, now, check the large fuses in the box on the fender. That is hopefully why nothing works now. If not, you may have REALLY messed something up. That is what they are for though, and should have caught the zap. If you get everything back where you can turn the motor over, and it still will not start, try to reset the security lock down. Put the key in the door and lock/unlock 5 times. It should start then.

SOURCE: Daughter called me ..car wont

it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

good luck

Ranger won,t start with charger after headlights on all night. what is the problem?


Maybe the deep discharge on battery trashed it and now it will not take a charge. Sure the charger is working? Give it enough time to charge the battery - at least five hours.

Subaru outback 2005 , replaced battery, radio and aircon not working no lights or power


When you turn the key you get nothing at all?
perhaps you put the cables on the wrong way and shorted something out?
or maybe the wires arent tight enough on the battery?
did you try hooking up booster cables? often when you buy a new battery it comes uncharged and needs to be charged properly on a good trickle charger.

hopefully you didnt hook the battery up backwards and short out the ECM...

Loud clicking sound when i try to tunr it over


boost, hummmmm ?????????????
a charger with a boost button? (big shops have this)
or you mean jumper cable , jump started from a running other car?


my wild guess. is you always start fine, when jumper cable jumped.
this proves, the
battery in your car is BAD or is only discharged.
for 100 years now, same deal.
try a fresh battery off a good car.
works now, so ??? yours is weak or bad!

but started car , is the voltage 13.3. to 15v? a walfart $10 meter.?
no , then the charge system is bad (charge lamp on?)
note, i said system. not a specific part.

if the charge system is failing.?
  1. bad battery. tha'ts right alts do shut down with battery bad. (open or shorted battery)
  2. loose alternator pulley belt.?
  3. bad alternator wires. connections.? or bad battery cables.?
  4. scan the PCM most 2007 will report what is wrong with voltages and charge. scan it.
engine rpm way below normal at idle 800 is typ. good. 400 dead wrong.
battery cables bad.
battey cables lugs green with corrosion
someone put the minus cable far end to the wrong part>?
this minus cable has correct spot near the starter.
some fit to block others to stater , bolt or bell blots.
to frame is wrong, seen that , with lazy work.

I replaced the battery terminal cable ends. Now the car will not start, There is a clicking noise from the starter.


Bad connection on cable ends or where they connect to battery. Quick check is if you have a good set of jumper cables, use the jumper cable as a replacement for what maybe the defective one. Hook negative cable good to battery neg. post and then put other side on neg cable to engine ground on block. See if it cranks, if it does than the trouble is on the neg. cable. If not then put positive cable on pos. post of battery. Then put other side of pos. cable on the starter post, try to start. If it cranks then the trouble is on the pos side of cable. Hope this helps.

First check and make sure the cables are attached to the correct posts. positive to positive and neg to neg. If so, make sure the battery is charged. Even new batteries can be defective. Try jumping it with a booster box or jumper cables. Check your main fuse. During installation, if the cables crossed it could have popped your fuse. Good luck

My 1998 Jimmy won't start. Just got a new starter. My battery is drain, when i use the jumper cables it still won't turn over.


with a new starter, this sounds like a bad battery cable or terminal end. the easier way to figure this out w/out checking the voltage drop across a whole battery cable is to affix the jumper cables strategically to find the bad one. Put jumper (+) on batt (+) and jumper (-) directly onto a piece of unpainted engine metal and not in the way of moving parts. If it starts this way then you've got a bad ground cable. If it didn't start, put jumper (+) on the hot post of the starter solenoid (there are 2 posts, only touch the one w/ the fatter cable going to it) or on a remote jump point if equipped, and put jumper (-) to batt (-). If it now starts you need a positive battery cable, or just a battery-to-starter cable (if separate)
