If your accessories all work such as the headlights and dash lights why wouldn't the car start if not the battery?
Could be a number of things. Is your car attempting to turn over (whur-whur-whur sound) or do you not get any response at all when you turn the key. Things to check:
1. Battery partially drained(it takes alot more juice to start a car then to just power your accessories).
2. Ignition coil (provides electricity to your spark plug wires).
3. Distributor cap/rotor (sends this electricity to your spark plugs).
4. Fuel pump.
5. Electrical continuity, espcially grounds. Check to see if all your ground wires are fastened AND tightened.
Maybe the starter, had a problem with mine, got underneath and wiggled the connnection to the starter and would start, eventually I replaced the starter, no problems since.
You could also check the Neutral Safety Switch. This limits the vehicle to only start in Park or Neutral.
Check the battery. Turn headlights on - they will come on with or without the key if it has power from the battery. If lights do not come on, the battery is dead (try jump-starting) or there is a bad connection (loose cable), or a short in the electrical system. If headlights come on, but dashboard lights do not light up - check the ignition (cylinder / switch)
Because the power for your headlights is pulled from your battery. When the dashboard lights dim after turning on the headlights the dashboard lights aren't getting as much power as they were with the headlights off. With the motor running or off? The headlights draw a lot of current, but should not visibly affect other systems. There could be a problem with a worn out battery, an alternator that isn't charging correctly, or you have…
Your 1992 Mazda protege will not start battery starter alternator are good no interior lights or headlights?
If Car headlights get dim and horn goes mute after few kilometer and battery discharges but it works fine without head lights what is the problem?
Yes - radio, spark plugs, headlights, tail lights, turn signals, overhead light, etc. All of these use electricity from the battery or alternator. If you have a radio with a clock, it uses electricity while the car is off - the battery provides the power. Same thing with leaving the headlights on when the car is off. The battery provides electricity to make them work.
Lights flicker on dashboard and headlights after replacing battery on 2003 pt cruiser what causes this?

1999 Volkswagon Jetta you tried to start the car the headlights radio dash lights work like normal but when you turn the key to start there is a clicking noise and it won't start please help repetitiv?
clicking noise is the international sound of a discharge battery. just because the lights and radio works it don't mean that the battery has the amps to turn(crank) engine. a faulty "holding winding" on the starter solenoid may also show as that symptom.also check the neutral safety switch. try a headlight start test. turn on your head lights and crank your engine have someone look at the headlights while you crank if the headlights dim…
