Having problems with your 2000 Kia Sportage ?

After replacing the vbelt attached to the AC compressor on my 2000 Kia Sportage, I get nothing. The battery is fine but when I try to start it nothing happens.

Electrical problem My dad has a 1988 trooper 4 cylinder. He recently put a new battery in the truck. When he tried to start it, nothing happened. No instruments, no crank, nothing. He let it set for 2 weeks. He gets back in it, and it immediately cranks, everything works great, idles fine. He turns it off and tries to restart it. Nothing. No instrument, no crank. We have no idea where to start looking for the problem. Help!

My 98 grand prix will start, but when I take off, it dies. It will not restart right away. When I try to crank it, nothing happens. No electrical components work. No dash lights, no power windows or locks, nothing works. No noise is made when I turn the key. I've had the battery tested, it is fine. What could it be. When I put the battery back in the car, it started right up, but I am afraid to drive it for fear of getting stranded. Advice please!!!!!

Car will not turn over. Battery is fine as are all fuses and I have tried to re-set every circuit breaker. As per the owners manual, I jumped the two diagnosis terminals and get no codes indicating signal problems. This happened two hours after getting an aftermarket stereo installed in the vehicle. It did start once after installation but on the way home the speakers went out. I parked it and 1/2 hr later it wont turn over. The installer said he had nothing to do with the car not starting as th

97 cougar xr7 will not start. Ran fine the other day, no problems, but this morning would not start, not able to get it to start all day. Tried charging battery, removed battery for charging (about 10 min or so), checked to see if wiring was fried (cant see any damage), has fuel, has oil, etc. Really strange. When you first turn key you hear the fuel pump working then when you turn further (to start) nothing.. no click - nothing. Tried jumper cables, nothing makes a difference. I have power


That is most likely correct. The starter Solenoid may be junk. What i can recommend you do is take that starter out and run it down to your local auto parts store like Autozone Pepboys o'reilly's or a place similar to that and they will test it fo ... 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7

I have an 07 pt cruiser that will not start. It ran fine yesterday but would appear I left the key in the on position last night. We tried boosting it, but it would do nothing. We tried charging the battery. I have dash lights, P/W, P/D, and radio will work, but will not turn over- when you hit the key NOTHING happens. Put in a new battery and still nothing, we checked the fuses- they are all good. Really don't know where to look next.

I have an 87 Dodge Colt Vista 5 speed manual. The vehicle has been running fine. Yesterday when I shut it off it would not start again. Battery is good. The car tries to start but will not turn over. Oil and Water levels are good. When I tried to pop the clutch I discovered I had no gears, I would push the clutch in and release it and nothing happened. The car rolls forward while in gear. What has happened all of a sudden? Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give me.

This morning when I attempted to start my 2006 Hummer H3, nothing happened. I thought I may have a dead battery but the lights and radio work fine. I then noticed the Passlock security lock light was on (fixed, not blinking). I tried using the procedure stated in this site of turning the key to "on" for 10 minutes, then removing the key and repeating the procedure 2 more times. I then attempted to start the vehicle and again nothing happened. Can I disable the "Passlock" security system or is th

Bad starter? I have been having intermittent problems getting my 99 Toyot 4runner to start. I'll go to start it in the morning and when I turn the key it simply clicks once and nothing. I will try a few more times and eventually it will start. Seems like it starts fine the rest of the day. The problem will go a way for a few weeks or months and then come back. I couldn't get it started yesterday worse than before. Had the battery checked and changed but it still won't start reliably. Is this a s
