why wont my cae start
So i had this issue and was told it was my
alternator and battery, so i replaced both
however today i experienced the same type of
issue, i tried to statt my car and it was
completely silent, no turn over or anything
except all light on in my car, i was told it was
the starter but i want a 2nd opinion
All your connections are clean, tight, and good cables from the battery? I believe you would have checked all that, but that almost sounds like the problem, or the battery is not as good as you think? Try jumping it to see if you can get it to turn over and start
To test the started......after no response to ur starting attempt....take a handle of a screwdriver.....and tap the starter a few times (~10-14 times) to bring it to top dead center. Then it should start....and u know for sure ur starter needs to be replaced
If Dash lights not turning on, it would be a fuse-able link is bad....located in ur wires.
I tried all of that already yesterday, an the weird thing is that it started up out of no where, so im lost, any thoughts on that now
Loose or corroded connection or bad starter/starter solenoid.
Points to a starter... my past experience, of what u are relating
Absolutely. If the car still starts and runs, then the security system still functioning, at least partially. If the security system completely fails, the car will not start. A good mechanic can connect the car to a scan tool and check the security system for faults. Some private shops do not like to repair security systems, so check first to see if they are capable of performing this repair.
Additionally, all the data is in your manual. Syncronize your transmitter with your car by pressing both lock and unlock the transmitter for 8 seconds until the car responds with the interior lights and the door locking. Start the engine and the security light will disappear.
