Have the charging system checked. The light comes on when there is a charging system problem. it may be a battery, alternator or a battery problem.
what are you Cold Cranking Amps on your battery? perhaps your battery is not strong enough, if that's not the case something with the battery wiring i suppose as long as your starting is turning it should be a battery issue.
Starting the engine uses the battery to turn the engine over. Because turning over the engine requires a LOT of electrical power, the car automatically shuts off any electrical devices that are powered on, so it has more electricity to use.
The obvious answer is that something is connected wrongly, or not at all, if you've checked all this and assuming the engine is turning over, just not starting, did you use the original ECU? if not it's possible that the engine management system is relaying the incorrect info to the engine and the timing etc. will be out.
No, the alternator is the charging device which runs off a belted pulley attached to the motor. The alternator charges the battery which is the source of the current required to get the engine turning over and in turn starting the engine.
Your question is confusing. If the engine cranks it is turning over.
A 2001 Honda Accord V6 may not start when the battery is bad, there is no fuel, or the ignition system is defective. A bad starter will also prevent the engine from turning over during starting.
is the starter engaging and turning over the engine or is it just spinning? if just spinning get new starter. if it is turning over the engine, have your ignition switch checked. if you are mechanical, the easiest way to check swith is to hot wire the engine and see if it starts
The first place I'd start would be the battery, alternator and starter. Verify that the battery is good and that the alternator is fully charging it, and that the starter isn't drawing too much current.
I've heard that disconnecting the battery for an hour or so works. Or turning the ignition on and off (without starting the car) repeatedly.
Get the Engine Checked Don't waste your money getting your engine checked. Just disconnect your negative side of your battery for 10 seconds. Reconnect it and your done, no more check engine light.
Sounds like your battery may be very low; if it turns over slowly when it eventually starts turning, definitely try jump starting or charging the battery and trying again.
The starter could be bad. Or the battery. The starter could be bad. Or the battery.
A marine starting battery is used in a CJ Jeep with a 350 engine.
If there is nothing wrong with the engine internally, then ,the starter is pulling. Have to replace it. You could always pull out the plugs and spin the engine and see how that does. The starter on the 4.6 is hard to get the 3rd bolt out. But, it does come out.
Alternator can be discounted for starting problem; it charges the battery when the engine is running it has nothing to do with starting the car. If the engine is not turning over (cranking) when you try to start it, either the igniton switch, wiring or starter motor are at fault. Also check the thick cable from battery negative/body to the engine block. NOTE if the car is automatic the park/neutral switch could be faulty. If the car is alarmed it could be an immobilizer fault. Difficult to know from your question but if engine starts with charged battery, check WITH ENGINE RUNNING for 14 volts approx across battery terminals. If volts less than 12, swap out the alternator
Engine, battery there are many answers to this.
Yes, the battery starts the engine, and as long as the battery is fully charged the engine will start. The battery will loose it's charge if the alternator is defective and not replenishing the charge of the battery but the alternator has nothing to do with starting the engine.
If the engine will not turn over, that is, sound like it is turning, then the trouble is a dead battery or really bad battery clamps. If the engine will not 'catch' and start running, then there are a number of causes, one of which is having no fuel.
usually in any vehicle when the battery dies if you keep turning the key there will be a ticking sound and since the battery has no power left it wont turn over your engine therefor it not being able to start however if the battery is just fine you got me
Double check that the battery works, then check if the engine works.
Possibly the fan is not turning on until the engine is getting to hot, if you havn't already I suggest you take it in to get checked out
The main battery for starting car is in engine bay. There is an aux.battery in the trunk.
Depends on the engine. A fuel injected engine will run the fuel pump to prime the engine. A diesel engine might have glow plugs run prior to starting. Some older heavy equipment engines had a gasoline pony engine to get the crankshaft turning prior to starting the engine.
