I have a 2002 chev venture (3.4L) that won't start. No warning signs that there was a problem. I had the van out earlier in the morning and it started great. When I went out a few hours later turned the key and nothing....not even a click. There is plenty of power coming from the battery as the radio, power windows, horn, and head lights all come on. When I try to start with the head lights on they do not dim. The dash indicator lights also will not come on when I turn the key to the on positio

If my dash lights, running lights and tail lights aren't working, and my headlights are dim and only getting 1 watt of power. The combo switch (headlights, running lights, turn signals) is working, the relay is clicking, but the running light wires are not getting power coming out out of the relay. Also the radio sometimes doesn't work and either turning the ignition on and off or just turning the key while the car was running would make it come back on. Is there any possibly way it could be

Car wont start. Has a brand new starter. When i turn the key all i get is a single click. I have a optima battery, had it recharged fully, still same results. The weird thing is, only certain things work. The power windows dont work, and my power locks dont work. The power seats work, all the lights on my dash board come on. I can play the radio and mess with the heat and air system. All though the lights on my dash come on, its not reading any levels. No gas, no engine oil, no trans. oil, no no

I have a 91 Honda accord manual. Sometimes it will start and sometimes it wont. I'll put the key in the ignition and hear the chime then turn the ignition and dash lights up and finally turn it all the way and hear a click and instantly no dash lights and no power. I turn ignition back to try again and nothing at all. Then I could come back later and the thing will crank right up. But lately it has gotten worse untill it's not cranking up hardly any. Some times I hook the cables to jump it and i

Turn the key the my Nissan Quest 1996 and no starter action. Not even a click and the dash lights go from dim to dark. I also noticed that my headlights wont come on at all, however the interior lights work and so do the power windows and doors. When I lock and unlock the doors they chatter or click as if not enough juice. Is this the battery or can the starter motor/solenoid stop the headlights from coming on? The battery reads 12.4 volts with out a load. If it?s the battery then why wont the h

My truck does not want to start when it is cold. If you turn the key before it starts to crank you can hear a click and then the lights on the dash come on and then it will turn over. I have had many mechanics check it out but they have no idea. The starter is ok, I think it is not getting electrical power when you turn the key sometimes. When it is warmed up I have no problem starting it in the am. PS I live in Phoenix, Az.

Most all electrical parts click off and on constantly, dash lights go off, a/c kicks in and out headlights will not come on in automatic mode, door locks will not work, dome lights will not come on automatically. When the engine is shut off headlights shut off and come on continually. This is causing the battery to run down and the lights are now going dim but continue to flicker.

When I turn my key the car won't start. It just makes a clicking sound. The radio, interior lights and dash lights come onI but if I leave the key in the aux position all the lights blink and click. I have to jump the battery in order to get my car to start. Once started it's fine, but t6he minute I turn it off it starts all over again. I am hoping it's just the battery but I have a sinking feeling that it is the Altenator therefore the battery will have to be replaced as well.

Car won't start when I turn the ignition key. I put in a new battery thinking that might be the problem but that didn't work. When i intitially turn the key one click some of the lights come on in the display like the battery light oil, and seat belt.
