1990 nissan 300zx won't start. It is a manual so I jumped it from second and it started up, but after running for a lil bit it shut off and was sputtering while accelerating. What is the problem? If I could jump it from 2nd gear then its not the starter right? Also the oil is real low, is there a sensor that shuts the car off? And one more thing, when I put the keys in the ignition now, none of the electronics come on. So when I jumped it, and drove it shouldn't that of charged the battery? I'm

98 buick; Car will not turn over with the key, but when I put a remote start switch to the starter it will but won't stay running, it runs the first time I try it for about 15 sec. I tested all the relays I found and fuses. I'm not getting power to the starter relay from the switch which tests good. Any ideas? Thankyou in advance for your time.

Parking break alarm goes off randomly too and stays on for days. Then car overheated breifly and after stopping for five minuets drove it a mile home and was fine for the next few weeks.

I have a 98 Cadillac Catera. The problem is when I turn the key the car doesn't turn over.I think it is the switch because lights & gauges are staying on with key turned off. I can jump the starter with the key out of the ignition & it will start & run fine but not turn off. If not switch maybe rod.
Hello, from the description that you have given I think you may be right, I think that the switch has passed its use by date. However have it checked by an auto electrician to confirm this before spending to much money. Best of luck with it, hope thi ... 1998 Cadillac Catera

2002 Rendezvous When I put the key in the ignition and start turning it, the car starts before the ignition is fully turned. Once running it sounds like the starter is trying to turn over when the car is in Drive and Neutral (a really loud grinding noise that stops in Drive And Revers). Also, the mileage lights up before the car is started, the doors will lock when the key is not in the ignition, and the A/C will not run...help?!?
The first thing I would do is be sure that your ignition switch is not shorting out, then I would be looking at the solenoid on the starter. The solenoid is the most common thing that fails and causes this to happen, eventually it will burn out and t ... 2002 Buick Rendezvous
1996 VW jetta gas.somtimes when the car door or trunk is opened the 4 way lights start flashing and car won,t start you can put jumper on starter to get car to start and the 4 ways will time out and quit blinking if you don't re-open doors. when this symptom quits car starts fine again. the heater motor does not shut off when car is off and key is pulled out. stereo stays on till key is removed is this normal.

I have a 92 awd subaru svx. I drove it for a full day after putting a new front end on it. Got into the car about a half hour after I pulled up to the house the car wouldn't start. Put the key in the ignition and nothin. The starter wouldn't even kick over. Almost as if there was no power. Well we jumped the starter with a wire to start the car, but it had to be in gear between reverse and neutral and it would turn over. Now instead of it being in AWD it has an indicator light that shows

My car wont start!!!...help please!!! i turn the key over to start it and the fuel pump/auto shutoff relay/fuel pump relay all start to click rapidly, and the starter wont engage. after about 30 mins of screwing with it....it finally turns over and the fuel pump seems to go off after the system is pressurized. then it starts but you have to rev up the gas in order for it to stay running. after about ten minutes of that.....i can let off the gas pedal and it usually stays running. seems to run ok
I would replace the relays first, then check fuel pressure. Also change the fuel filter. You can use a multi-tester on the ohm setting where the relay is to see if the voltage remains the same ... 1998 Dodge Intrepid
For a couple months now when starting the car i would have to turn the key a couple times before the starter would engage. the first couple turns it would just clack.

I have a 1997 Pontiac Sunfire. Just put in a new battery, worked great. All of a sudden car wont start. before it stopped working the car would take a few cranks to start or might not start at all for a period of time. for this reason i think it is the starter myself. the theft system light stays lit. my dad who also drives the car thinks the light wasnt always lit. for that reason he thinks its the theft system acting up. ive read other posts saying to put the key in the on position for

Doesn't start my 1991 acura integra LS won't start. Car drove fine, then went shopping. came back tried to start and it wouldn't. The car would turn over but would stay running. It reminds me of trying to start a lawn mower. So i replaced the fuel pump(what a job). I replaced the distributor cap and rotor(that was easy). I cleaned the the battery cables to battery posts. the battery is new last month. I tried to to put the key in the on position to read the CEL but nothing happens. I put a screw
To put it simply it's either spark, fuel or compression. If the timing belt is okay (not broken or timing marks don't line up) and you have spark, you need to make sure you have clean gas and not water (from condensation) or air being sprayed out the ... 1993 Acura Integra Hatchback
