Hi I just bought a 2004 Mazda 323 and I had to turn the key twice to start it. The next day it wouldnt start at all until I charged the battery with jumper cables. The third day it wouldnt start again even after I used jumper cambles, however the lights did come on. I checked the battery and it is fully charged. I am so frustrated due to the fact I just bought the car!!! If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Cheryl

My 2007 Nissan Maxima won't start. When you try to turn it on it makes a faint sound that sounds like a weak attempt to start. It doesn't appear to be the battery as the lights all come on normally, the owner's manual says that the ignition knob won't turn if the battery is "discharged" (although I read a post where they were able to turn it but fixing the battery fixed the problem), and because I tried charging the car battery with a car battery charge (The charger was at 62% and was at 65% af

WEIRD PROBLEM I have a 2000 Saturn Sl1 that was running fine and then it would not start. The lights in the car come on and so does the radio. The head lights do not come on. While I have the key turned to where the lights and radio come on, when I push my brake everything turns off, and when I release the brake everything turns back on. I have charged the battery and it still will not start. Is this an electrical problem, the starter, alternator?

When I start the car the cooling fan turns on and the charge battery light and airbag light come on. The airbag light flashes and when I rev the car the dash lights go brighter as well as the head lights i am wondering what would cause this and if i have to replace the wiring in the whole car or if it is just a relay for the alt. that is causing the battery to over charge and put out to much power. please answer this with as much information as possible thank you very much and I really hope tha

I have a 2004 Hyundai elantra. When driving all my gauges turn off including my odometer and speedometer. My car loses power and the automatic trans. has trouble shifting. My battery completely dies, however if I let the car sit about 45 minutes the battery seems to charge up and the car starts. My alternator light never comes on. I have slow charged the battery overnight but same problem occurs while driving. Can this be the alternator or the battery heating up and losing it's charge?

I have a mercury sable 2001. Lost the only key I had. I paid 200 dollars for a locksmith to come out and fix it since it needed a chip. After the key was made we noticed the battery was dead. I brought the battery to the store and they charged it. Now car lights go on fine but when I turn the key to start the car it acts like it wants to start but won't. The battery light and exclamation point stays on with the key forward as well. Is it the key?

Our 2004 Chrysler Sebring has not been driven in a while, maybe about a year. Apparently, the battery died (it is the original battery...5 yrs old) and the computer reset itself. We charged the battery, to the point where the charger said it was fully charged, and tried to start the car. There was a click, followed by one attempt for the engine to turn over...then an electrified smell in the air. Check Engine light is one while trying to start the car, but the engine is in good condition. A

Hey Chief. I have a mazda mx6. It has been sitting for a month and I tried to start it. I jumped it with my wench battery (not fully charged either), but the car started. Everything was fine until I went to an idle then the car shut off. It was weird the head lights were on but the switch was off. Now nothing comes on except head lights. We put a good battery from another car on it, but not even a click from the starter.

Battery is only chargeing intermittently I think. Both lights and battery warning dashboard warnings come on, and stay on when I start the car. I believe the lights icon is only to alert you to a failed light in the system,. Both of these go off if the voltge regulater decides to work and turns on the alternater to charge the system. Is the voltage regulater an integral part of the alternater???Do I need to replace both??? Is there some other problem>????Battery seems good...


You need to measure the charging voltage and current using a multimeter while Rev'ing the engine. If there is no clean flow to the battery then you need to start from the alternator, the output ac and the charging regulator section which rectifies an ... 1991 Toyota Camry

We just bought a used suburban with a remote ignition system. It does not work, however, when you atempt to use it the car will not start for some time there after, I assume this is an anti theft system gone awry. In general to start the car, you must turn the keyto the first click and wait for all the engine lights to come on and then fully turn the key to make it start. However this morning, it wont start at all. It is not the battery or cables or sparkplugs.
