Have you checked your battery lately?
A trick question?? the obvious #1 ans.-- a battery problem, then on to a cable from the batt. to the starter, then a bad starter ,then onto a problem inside the motor,(Like the timing chain or anything within the path of the motor's moving parts.)
your battery is dead or the starter solenoid
what can cause a 2002 buick lesabre to not crank
I had a 1994 Buick Park avenue that would do this occasionally . The Mechanic replaced the crank sensor " and it "solved" the problem for several months. After several months a similar problem came up again. This time it appears to be a short in the Battery Cable connections. I could get out and just peck on the cable and it would start. I am going to replace the battery Cables entirely and see if this "solves" it again.
Battery, battery cable or connections, starter problem, ignition switch not working. Be more specific please.
take it to dealership
Low battery (bad battery or alternator) or bad starter, most likely.
It depends on if it won't "crank" or wont't "start" if it worn't crank make sure your battery terminals are clean and tight if it still won't crank check the wiring if it looks ok suspect the starter.if it won't start it could be a fuel pump fouled spark plugs faulty ignition module faulty crank sensor or out of time. hope this helps.
check the battery. mine wont start if its 0 or colder.
no power? Try a Battery Jump-Box, Or Maybe the Starter is no Good? But if it dont Crank at all You are having some sort of Power Problem, all Fuses connected, Battery Terminals, etc..
Please clarify what you mean by "crank up". Do you mean that the engine won't crank when it's cold? If that's the case it might be a battery problem. Sometimes a battery can produce enough current when it's warmer but the temperature drops, the chemical reaction will slow enough that it doesn't make enough current to crank the engine. Have the battery checked. When a battery gets to that point it is weak enough that it will show up on a routine test.
behind the crank pulley
Sounds like it could be any component of the starter. Just had the same problem, first was a loose battery connection so you may want to check that as well, but ultimately needed replacing of the entire starter.
If your battery is old, it could be the cause of the problem. The starter takes a lot of current to crank an engine. The fact that lights are working doesnt' give much info as to the state of the battery. Try blowing the horn, which takes more current, and see if that works OK. If it is weak, it is probably a battery problem. Try to jumper your battery from another car and see if that helps. If that doesn't help, it is likely a starter problem.
You put a new crank sensor in your 92 buick and now its like its out of time?
sounds like the fuel sensor is the problem
it sounds more like you have a starter problem itself if it doesn`t crank. also check your battery and cables.
You need to determine whether your problem is a "no crank" problem, or a "no start" problem. To determine if it is a "no crank" problem, you will need to make two jumper wires. The first jumper wire should be about 6"-8" long, clips on either end, about 18g wire. disconnect smaller gage wire wire on the starter solenoid and jumper it with your jumper wire. Turn the ignition key on and then using another heavy gage (about 10 gage) wire, go directly from the positive terminal of the battery to the terminal on the starter where the battery wire connects. The engine should crank over. If it does not, replace the starter. If it does crank over, then you don't have a "no crank" problem, you have a "no start" problem, in which case this may be an issue with the alarm system. I goit lucky in that my problem was the starter, and not the alarm system. I performed the trouble shooting that I described above to determine that it was a bad starter. I replaced the starter, and all is well!
alternator went dead so did the battery or its locked up
Could be a dead battery, broken starter, broken solonoid, or an electrical problem like a broken wire, or fuse.
It could be a weak battery or a bad ignition coil.
could be the crank sensor, the go out. the have a reputation for that.
You need to check your ignition system, the problem isn't with the battery, obviously.
If the engine will not even crank, then suspect a defective battery or starter. Start by removing both battery cables and cleaning the cable connections and battery posts. Reconnect them and see if it starts. If not put a battery charger on the battery and fully charge it. If it will not accept a charge is is defective. It the vehicle starts then you may have a defective alternator. If the battery is good and it still will not start, suspect a bad starter. You will have to remove it and have it tested.
