Why isn't my 1992 240sx turning over Ive checked my starter alternator and my battery i would check my starter relay but i don't know where it is?
what type of engine do you have in your 240 maybe your mass air flow sensor isnt working and youre running too rich
If the starter motor is not turning the engine over correctly, this might be because the vehicle battery is flat. If the battery is not charged, this may be because the alternator is not charging correctly. The recommendation here is to pop along to a local garage or autelectrician asking them to check the charge of the battery, the alternator output, and the starter motor operation if necessary.
Why is a good starting engine now not starting on the first turn Sounds like it stops while turning over 2004 Taurus?
I'm guessing it clicks but won't start? If that's the case its the starter drive going out to engage the flywheel but the starter motor is not turning. Probably needs a starter but you should check to make sure there is correct voltage in system (battery & alternator is o/k) and that the wiring is also o/k to the starter & at the battery.
Your timing could be off, Your starter could be going bad, or you could have a low battery.The battery is the simplest to start with. You could go to Auto Zone and they will check your battery for you. Also talk to them about your starter and your timing. Low battery, faulty alternator, worn stater, corroded connection
I seriously doubt that it's the alternator that's doing the clicking. Most likely it's the starter. Check the battery, a discharged battery can cause that problem. Have the battery charged then start the vehicle and drive it to a shop that can check the charging system. Many auto parts retailers will test the charging system for you.
Why won't a 2004 ford explorer start the battery is fine the lights work there is no noise when turning the key on.?
95 Olds Achieva No power to starter Only thing working is headlights and interior lights by turning on manually?
Anyone know why the engine diagnosis lamp on a Peugeot 405 stays on and starter motor seems to have trouble turning the engine initially but eventually does and starter motor recently changed?
i would hazzard a guess at the lamp stays on due to the fault not being taken out of its memory, if the problem has been fixed you need to clear its memory, as for the starter motor problem i had this and it was down to cranking power the starter motor demands so much in the begining and if your alternator is not charging you battery proply that could you problem, you can get…
The mechanical connections that supply electrical current to your starter are subject to corrosion due to electrolysis, and thus loosening of the connections, which is the most likely culprit here. Inspect, clean, and tighten all connections from battery to starter, and from alternator to battery once a quarter for best results. It is also likely that although your electricity appears to be on, as you have some lights, any load put on the system will…
An engine cranks slowly when the starter is activated Technician A says the starter circuit should be checked Technician B says the engine timing should be checked Who is correct?
a, the battery condition should be checked first to make sure that its capable of turning over the starter, a weak battery will cause the majority of starter problems, if the battery is fine then its more than likley to be a problem with the actual starter or poor connections on the starter, i have only ever had 1 with a wiring problem, as for the timing out it will not cause slow cranking unless…
have you considered checking or changing the following: 1. Maybe the connection of the battery terminal is grounded 2. Maybe the connection in the alternator is grounded 3. check the fuses inside the fuse box and the fuses near the battery 4. how about the sparkplugs have you checked it I hope this helps
That's insufficient information. In general, "crank over" means that the starter is not turning the engine when you put the keyswitch to the "start" position. The starter can fail to engage because of a failed starter, solenoid, keyswitch, neutral lockout switch, faulty battery, failed alternator or just about anything that would drain the battery.
What could cause a 1990 Firebird to not charge when the NEW alternator checks out to be working just fine?
If the alternator tests good then it might not be a charge problem. Does it do it after you run it awhile? If so you might consider changing the starter. My 92 had a high priced starter on it and anytime you drove more than about 5 miles the battery acted like it was dead. It ended up the starter was getting hot and not turning over right.
If a 1993 Celica ST won't start or roll start and the battery is charged full of gas fuses are good and you can hear the starter spinning what is the problem?
Every morning in the cold my SUV struggles to turn on. Once it's on I have no problem turning it offon. According to Sears my battery and alternator is good. I changed my Starter 4 weeks ago.?
Check to make sure your battery connections are tight. Take them both off, clean them and then put dilectric grease on them and reinstall and tighten them. Your starter needs all the cranking amperage it can get to turn the cold motor over and with just a little bit of dirt or corrosion, you may be losing just enough to make it hard to start. You may also have a broken wire ot the starter…
Have a 1994 Chevy Cavalier replaced the battery alternator checked out fine still no noise when turning over is it the starter and where is it located?
check the starter relay,neutral safety switch,ignition switch,wiring ,and or your grounds.the starter location , if your vehicle is a '''6cyl 3.1L''' then it' found '''(UNDER HOOD, CENTER, LOWER ENGINE AREA, REAR SIDE OF ENGINE)''' if is a '''4cyl 2.2L''' then '''(UNDER HOOD, CENTER, LOWER ENGINE AREA, MOUNTED ON FRONT LOWER ENGINE)''' to make sure try www.autozone.com check on components location.
Probably that the alternator is not functioning to charge the battery for you. Have the charging system checked out for you. Check to see if the battery terminals are clean. A simple eye inspection is not always enough. Batteries accumulate corrosive sulfate between the hold-down clamps and the battery terminals that you don't see, which can block the recharge energy from the alternator to reach the battery for recharge, thus, turning on the battery light…
Why wont my 99 Ford Contour start if battery and alternator test fine but battery light comes on and EVERY light in the car slowly dies down followed by car turning off?
Why would the battery light come on and go off you replaced the battery and had the alt checked and its OK 1998 Grand Marquis?
First of all, the battery light never means that you have a bad battery. You COULD have a bad battery, but that is another issue apart from the battery light. The battery light means that the regulator in the alternator doesn't see a charge going to the battery. That doesn't mean you have a bad alternator either, but you could have a bad alternator. The light is turned on by the regulator which is built…
Gm 350 and the starter keeps running on until you pull battery power have had all wiring checked all good have tryed shiming starter starter is reconed help?
Where is the voltage regulator located on a 1995 Saturn dohc the starter battery and alternator all went at the same time you have replaced all 3 but it is still losing power any help please?
The voltage regulator for a 1995 Saturn SL2 is in the alternator. Check your charging voltage after the engine is started and has run a few minutes. Should be better than 14 to 15 volts at the battery terminals. Make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight. Had a neighbor replace alternator, battery and starter and all he needed was a good connection to the battery, which I supplied. To load test the alternator…
It is one of several potential problems. If it's low battery voltage the battery is unable to maintain enough current to engage and operate the starter. If it's a loose or poor battery terminal connection the connection may be weak and not capable of carrying the current load of the starter motor. If it's a faulty starter it could be engaging but the electric motor part is not functioning. If the lights go completely off…
96 Bonneville wont start after turning the key driving it yesterday the car would start but when you turned it off the car would not start then tried it again and it did start now it will not start?
If the starter motor is not turning, it could be a dirty or poor battery terminal contact causing the problem. Also check the starter relay and solenoid and all connections to them. It could also be the starter motor itself. If the starter motor is turning, look at both the fuel system and the ignition system. A failure in either of them will result in the car not starting.
Yes, if the alternator is functioning and you are not loading the charging circuit (using as much charge as the alternator is putting out so the battery receives nothing). Please note that "Idling" to charge the alternator normally does not work as the alternator is not turning fast enough to charge the battery, it only maintains the status quo for energy usage.
What caused your car to cut off while driving only to give off a ticking noise when trying to restart?
If the car is ticking but not turning over when trying to start, it sounds as if it's an electrical issue. The ticking sound is probably the starter solenoid. It sounds like there's not enough current to engage the starter. (They require quite a bit of juice.) I'd suggest checking the battery, alternator, and battery cables.
Weak alternator. Have the charging system checked. I had a 95 Toyota tercel that totally shut down when the headlights turned on and the cause was for the most part dirty battery connections, when the electrical load was raised the alternator could not immediately keep up and required a moment to adjust, but with a bad battery connection (probably the Positive in my case) it couldn't temporarily draw enough power from the battery to still…
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…
