2004 Buick Ranier Repair Question
Car wont start with fully charged battery
If its cranking over and will not start-Check battery and alternator then refer to below
Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if okay-check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs,coil's resistances,cap and rotor,distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing
they replaced the battery with a fully charged one and it wont start. cant check the alternator if car wont start right?
They can be tested at an auto parts store- Explain this-car won't start
One more time -is it cranking over and will not start? Or just won't crank over at all/nothing when key at crannking position
if its cranking and wont start.pour fuel in the intake.does it start?if no check the coils and wires for spark.ty for using 2carpos
it wont crank over at all.
**No crank at all/nothing/nada when key is engage to starting position
Could be a blown fusible link, the starter, starter relay, clutch switch/park and neutral switch/transmission position switch and ignition switch assuming the battery condition and connections are good. Note:If it doesn't apply disregard.
you need to read the voltage with a meter at the starter with the key in start position.
thank you so much for trying to help me. I spoke with him this morning and asked him about what you suggested. i asked him to read the voltage w a meter at the starteer w the key in the start position he said he did and it has voltage there. i feel like hes tried everything at this point. any thoughts on what else it cld be? what is the worse case scenario? thanks again!
try tapping the starter with a hammer.with the key in start poss.does it start?your getting start voltage their so the starter assy. needs to be replaced.ty for using 2carpros
