Sounds to me that the starter motor is in electrical short that is discharging the battery. I would take the starter motor to the electrical shop to be tested (or the car and ask them to check the starter).
Do the lights and other accessories come on? Check the starter or the keyswitch if everything else is working.
it does that because it has either jumped time or ....jumped time ! :) :)
because the battery is dead.
This engine (3.0L) is an interference engine so yes, the engine could lock up if the timing belt jumped.
Could be, the engine is seized, the starter is bad, dirty or loose battery connections, battery in vehicle being jumped is stone dead.
Check for loose or corroded battery cables Bad starter solenoid? Bad starter? Seized engine? Bad neutral safety or clutch safety switch? Ignition Switch?
Your engine is kaput.
It could if the valves made contact with the pistons in an interference engine.
That will depend on whether you have a 4.0 OHV engine, or a 4.0 SOHC, or a 5.0 engine. If you have a 4.0 OHV or a 5.0, the repair is not considered a real big deal. If you have a 4.0 SOHC, the engine may have to be removed. If you need specific repair information, please specify which engine you have.
You will know if your car has jumped timing by the way it starts up. If the engine is slow and sluggish, it could be a sign of jumped timing. Also listen out for strange noises coming from the engine or if it backfires, it is likely that there has been a change in the timing sequence.
starter, solonoid, ignition, battery. if it clicks when you turn the key then the battery is really dead or its the starter the battery could still be jumped if its the battery.
I jumped You jumped He/She/It jumped We jumped They jumped
needs new battery or starter drawing too much current
Seized engine? Bad starter solenoid? Bad starter? Bad neutral switch? Loose or corroded battery terminals? Weak battery?
Out of time. Possibly worn cam chain has jumped a tooth.
check your ground to your battery make sure its nice and tight
That engine uses a timing chain. Chances are very slim that the chain jumped time. However if it did jump time the engine would not run and the engine would have no compression. Tell us what the symptoms are.
A low or dead battery will have this effect. There is enough juice in the battery to activate the solenoid in the starter (causing the clicking sound), but not enough to turn over the engine. A jump start or a replacement battery may be needed if the battery is no longer capable of holding enough of a charge even when being jumped.
Need more info like what size engine and what are the symptoms.
Check the 1989 Honda Accords timing. If the engine has jumped time then the engine will buck and sputter.
When you turn the ignition u will hear a clicking noise,an my take 3 or 4 tries until the engine starts or your aurora could loose power an may need to be jumped off. -Jake of Texas owner of an 95 aurora
You may have a electrical device that is not shutting off when it should such as a glove box light, trunk light, brake lights, interior lights, engine compartment light, etc.
Valve sprockets jumped time....probably because of a bad timing belt. There could be other causes like somewhere in the electronic engine control system.
I/You/We/They have jumped. He/She/It has jumped. she is jumped up and down.
