Is your battery dead? You might need a new battery.
If the lights are on as normal, maybe there is a problem with the shifter, if automatic. There is some kind of a switch that only lets the car start in Park and maybe Neutral too.
Will the engine turn over?, Is it automatic or standard?, Check battery and selnoid. Remove and clean battery cable connections at battery and all oher connections going to and including the connections to the starter. When testing for current flow past the battery be sure to have key in start position.
turn the headlights on. Now try and start the motor - do the headlight go dim?
If they don't your starter circuit has a problem.
If they do then look to the battery.
There are ways to continue but if you asking these questions your motor might be better of in a shop.
Crank but not start and run, possible. Not to crank, start or run, no. No lights or horn, no.
Check bulbs & fuses first. If still a problem you will need to start looking at possible wiring issues
Check to see if stop lights are working. Shift interlock and stop lights are on (perhaps blown fuse) the same circuit. If stop lights are not working, try turning the key to the 1st position (unlock) and try to shift to neutral to start car and then you can move shift lever.
there is a short in the relay for the head lights
Start small. Check your fuses.
If the other lights work, look for a bad fuse (I believe the tail lights and dash lights work off the same fuse). As far as the vehicle not wanting to start, it's hard to trouble-shoot without knowing the symptoms (is the starter spinning or not?, etc).
if all other lights are working, i would start with the reverse light switch.this is usually located on the side of the transmission
Turn signals not working nor back up lights. However the head lights are working and rear lights are also working
Start with checking the fuses.
First of all is the lights working in the car? (over head lights or any kind of lights) If your not getting anything at all (no lights) then you should check the battery. If the lights are working then I would check your starter. Most of the time if you take the battery somewhere to get checked they will do it for free. So I would start there. Did you try to get a jump to see if that would start it? Hope this helped some.
Have you checked your battery. My battery died on me all of a sudden and I could not start my car.
If the lights are not working after using the remote start on a 2003 F-250, then something is wrong with the way it was wired when the remote start was installed. The remote start has wires to hook up to the lights so that a person knows the vehicle started. Perhaps this step was skipped in installation.
you have a bulb out. go buy a new one and they will start working
A short to ground causes all fuses to blow. If you have a trailer connecter then start there first.
There are several things that can cause your 2002 Nissan to shake, then shut off and not start. The most common causes are a lack of fuel, or a dirty air filter.
could be any number of things you need to list symptoms as to what it does when you try to start it or what it ran like the last time it was running
I have the same problem, when I start, it just cut off. All of a sudden it works fine now. I didn't do anything, it just works. Any ideas what caused this? The problem arise when I drove with my hazard lights on and switched of my car leaving the lights on for around 3hrs.
this sounds like a fuse or 2. that's where i would start.
Check the fuses to start with. Make sure that the dimmer switch is on high and working. If these are ok, then check for bad wiring connections to the dash lights.
your starter may be bad if the lights and windows operate normally then its not ur battery. also aftermarket alarms have a starter kill so if one is present on ur car thay may also be preventing a start
My '93 Sport does the same thing periodically. This may be a cool safety feature Jeep uses to indicate your brake lights are not working. If this is the case it is as simple as replacing fuse or bulbs. if your lights flicker on and off i wouldheck for a short in your electricle systm or if they went out and stayed out i would start by checking the fuses in your fuse box.hope this helps.
Look for a loose ground/connecting wire.
Maybe start with dimmer switch, that's what I did on mine.
