Car doesn't start. When you turn the ignition key,it just shows lights on dash but doesn't crank. I have had the problem here for 4days,but still getting same responses...dead battery,bad starter,etc. It isn't any of these. I have replaced ALL these things. I need someone who knows about cars,particularly electrical issues relating to starting one. I am not mechanically inclined,but do know what I have already fixed and replaced. The battery,starter,selanoid,and alternator are ALL fine! I can't

I have an 85 mercury cougar with a 302 v8. I cannot get the engine to start. I turn they key, and the starter works and it sounds like it will start, but it never does. It acts as though the coil wire has been removed from the coil and distributor cap. I have drained my battery in attempts to start it after replacing several parts. After replacing these parts, I tested it and discovered i am STILL not getting any spark from my spark plugs. i replaced the coil, I replaced the ignition box, I repl

I have a 1994 Nissan Sentra, It stalled on the highway, and would not start back up. First thing I did was put some gas in the tank because you never know. Next thing I did was to spray ether in the intake, and it started and ran until the ether burned off. So I replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, and fuel pump relay, I can hear the fuel pump turn on when I turn the key, but it still will not start. I have checked the fuel lines for breaks and did not find any. Even though I think it is a fuel

1999 Ford Taurus SW SE DOHC- my car will not start. The engine tries to turn over but it will not catch. Last week we were able to get it to turn over by spraying starter fluid into the manifold, but once the car warmed up it would die. Now it will not start at all. We replaced the fuel filter and it is still the same thing. I can hear my fuel pump priming when I turn the key (I believe). Any ideas? could it still be my fuel pump? We also checked the fuel pump regulator and had no fuel comi

I have a 1989 Jeep Grandwagoneer that won't start. I've had it running since I bought it about 6 months ago, never had a problem with it starting other than when the alternator went bad. Replaced it and ran fine. Was driving it yesterday and it overheated on me, stopped and shut it off to let it cool down and when I went to start it there was nothing. It still has power, lights, radio, etc come on, but when I turn the key there is nothing, not even a click from the starter.

1996 Subaru legacy with 5 starters replaced since June 2011. Still not starting normally. Will generally work for 2 weeks post replacement and then nothing when the key is in the start position. Starters check out ok on the bench. Normally after 2-3 weeks we can start it after tapping the starter lightly with a half inch socket extension bar. Sometimes it is a 2 person job with one person having the key in the start position while the other one taps. Now with our latest starter we are have

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi eclipse gt that the starter quit working. We could here a click when turning the key to start. So im thinking the solenoid was engaging. But the starter was bad.

Car runs, but stalls. All power indicators on. Car rests, then starts. Runs for short distance, then stalls again. Tests indicate no power to starter from ingnition leads when keying to start. Already replaced starter solenoid relay, fuel pump relay, auto shut-down relay and bypassed starter motor. Applied power directly to starter and it cranks. Now, turning key does nothing.

I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GT that doesn't want to crank at times. Used to be first thing in the morning. You turn the key and it will try to start but dies. When you try it again and push the gas it would start. Now, it does it a lot, not just first crank. I have had it checked out and the alternator and starter are fine.
