What could be the problem if your car will not start after running on a brand new battery after a month?
%REPLIES%. Answer . The alternator probably isn't putting out properly. Go to AutoZone and have them check the alternator.. Answer . If the new battery went completel…y dead, and you know the alternator is good, the culprit could be a "slow draw". This would be caused by a trunk light that stays on when the trunk is closed, a vanity mirror light, glove compartment light, console light; something that you assume goes out when it's closed, but doesn't. Check all of your courtesy light switches in these places to make sure they make proper contact. A glove compartment or console door that doesn't close properly could be the culprit. \nUntil you find the problem, disconnect your battery when you're in for the night!\nIf you can't resolve it on your own, find a shop that has a low amps probe. It'll determine where the draw is coming from..
If you have a fully charged battery but when you turn the key there is no response at all but the dash lights and radio come on could you have starter problem?
1 . Your battery terminal connections loose ( broken , look for cracks ) 2 . Automatic transmission not in park / neutral . Clutch not all the way to floor 3 . Starter solenoi…d faulty 4 . Ignition switch faulty 5 . Engine seized ? 6 . Starter motor solenoid faulty ( turn key do you hear a click sound ) 7 . If yes it could be your starter motor 8 . If NO itcould be starter relay Buy your self a Haynes Repair Manual for your make of veh / year The Troubleshooting section is well worth reading for this type of problem
1990 and 1989 Jeep Cherokee Laredos wont start Battery has power Lights radio windows work What could be the problem?
Answer . I recently had this problem with another vehicle. If the vehicle will crank but not start, it may be a leaking fuel injector. A leaking fuel injector will flood …the engine, not allowing it to start. This is especially true if the vehicle will not take a jump start. If you can hear the fuel pump (in the fuel tank) turn on when you first try to start the vehicle, then the fuel pump is working. It generally tries to stay on for about 5-7 seconds. If it will not crank, then it may be your starter. Hope this helps.\n. \nSD
Went for a tune up new fuel filter air filter ignition wires and oil change now oil and engine light have started coming on when driving and car still has hesitation problems what could be wrong?
Hesitation . \nHave a technician check your cars computer for fault codes to check for the potential problem. You may have an oil leak as well.
You are having the problem with your 98 Plymouth breeze 2.0 l the car wont start and the lights and radio and all that come on you had the starter tested and it is still good what could be the problem?
Check to see if your fuel pump is good. Buy starting fuild and spary some in the hose that's attached to your air fliter spary it towards the engine. Have someone turn the key… while you spray and see if the car turns on. If so then you need a new fuel pump. If not It could also be you ignition coil. - Goodluck Second opinion I had a different car where the fuse burned out in the engine compartment. It would not even try to start until I replaced that fuse.
You have to jump start your car everyday installed a new battery and alternator what could be the problem?
You should have a heavy red wire going to the back of the alternator, it should have 12 volts, it will excite the alternator, thus allowing it to charge your battery. If the d…oesn't have 12 volt, trace the wire, I believe that it will end at the starter. If you have 12 volts at this wire, most likely you have a fusable link that's shorted out at the starter. Look for a wire at the starter that appears burnt, or wiggle the wires one at a time, you'll find on that feels like a plain rubberband, with no resistance while wiggling.
1988 Ford Bronco II Bought a new alternator battery charged up start the car battery light comes on then it dies what is the problem?
does your bronco have an external voltage regulator if so i would take it and have it checked
Remove the radio and see if everything is normal. If yes put another one (known to be working well) in and see if the car starts. If yes then the older radio is faulty. If not… then get the electrical system (including battery alternator) thoroughly checked.
Then the alternator needs to be looked at asap But I even took the cable off alternator and car stayed on which meet alternator in good right? . Edit: If you took the cable …off the alternator, then you disconnected the alternator so you didn't test the alternator at all. As a quick test only, removing the positive battery cable at the battery and the engine stays running means the alternator is charging. Do not run the engine more than a few seconds like this, and even then a voltage spike can wipe out your car's electronics. Much better to get a charging system tester to check things or at least borrow a voltmeter.
There could be a sensor wire that is bad or going bad
It's possible. Your starter draws more power from your battery than the lights and radio combined, so they may work, but when you try to start you car, there isn't enough pow…er in the battery to operate the starter. It's best to have your starting and charging system checked by a reputable automotive repair shop in order to isolate the cause.
Maybe the starter. Does it click when you turn on the ignition? Yes and also check to see if you are getting spark and there could also be a fuel delivery problem.
Check all of your wire connections from your battery, starter, and alternator. First, disconnect your batter to avoid electric shock, followed by your alternator and starter. …Leave the wires in place, but disconnected. Acquire some electrical parts cleaner (brake parts cleaner may work, but could possibly leave a residue). Spray each wire end and scrub with a scotch brite pad, or wire brush until clean. NOTE: be careful not to scrub too much. Battery cables commonly have a lead coating on them to keep the copper underneath from corroding. Do not scrub the lead off, or corrosion may take place and cause the problem again.. After scrubbing, spray the connections again to remove any loose contaminates, then reattach all of your wires in reverse order of removal.. If this does not solve the problem, remove the starter, and take it to a local auto parts store to have them bench test it. Most places will do it for free.
Unwanted Brake Light Activation . Usually this is caused by the brake light SWITCH being out of adjustment in relation to the brake pedal arm which pushes on a plunger in the… switch to operate it. . Different makes and models of vehicles have different means of mounting and adjusting the brake light switches, so the adjustment will depend on your vehicle.
It could be a number of problems. It could be the sensor is bad, it could indicate a fault with the alternator, faulty leads, faulty wiring... it depends on the situation.
it depends does the car turn over if not most likely it the starter
If you have a chip in your key the chip may have gone bad or your ignition is not reading it. the car thinks someone is trying to steal it & stops ignition process. try to get… a new key made. you may have to get it from a dealer.
