Because your car runs on gas but your lites run on a battery.
Some times the battery will have enough power to turn lights on but not enough to turn the engine over. Try to jump start it or replace battery with one you know is charged. By the way-nice car.
Crank but not start and run, possible. Not to crank, start or run, no. No lights or horn, no.
security system need to be check take the car to the nearest Pontiac car dealer to have it reprogram
it depends does the car turn over if not most likely it the starter
Your car won't start. No electrical items will work (radio, lights, power windows/locks...)
The starter may be at fault.
Sounds like a dead car battery. Do any lights or electrical accessories work?
there is a short in the relay for the head lights
It could be ignition module.
See if the battery has water. Then see if it will jump with jumper cables. If it will start with jumper cables, your battery had enough amperage to make the lights work and the radio to play but not enough to start the car.
Dead battery? Loose or corroded battery cable? Blown fusable link?
Will your lights headlights come on? Will anything work? Had something like that happen to me years ago. I had no lights and nothing worked. Turned out it was an alternator. There could be something else that would be wrong but, it would be something to check out.
been there done that. it the security system. quick,cheap fix is to replace the instrument panel. find one at car-part.com. you cant bypass it or even if you were to get a new one ($$$$$) they fail too.
you drain your battery when you leave your lights on
I went to start my car. I turn the switch once. All the lights and stereo come on. But when i turn it all the way to start, I get nothing. No sound, no click, no crank, nothing. I tried to Jump it for about 10 minutes with the same result. Need Help Please.. Car is a 94 Ford Probe
No, the flasher relay has nothing to do with starting the vehicle. It only controls the flash of the directional lights.
your car will not start, lights wont turn on, ect
When your lights are on and your engine is not running you are taking the power for your car lights directly from your battery. If you leave them on long enough, you will run down your battery and your car will not start. Then you will need a jump.
check if your lights are still on that drained the battery
Most likely your car battery is completley dead.
even with the lights on, the battery may still be weak... try jump starting it, and see if it works...if not.. starter, ignition switch or other safety switch.. dave
The fact that the lights don't work may be a problem with the fuse. You should have your radio examined by a professional.
What will happen is the car will not start nor will the electrical lights, radio ect. Unless your doing electrical work on the car don't dissconect the battery
