If the battery has gone dead, it could cause the security system to go into full lock-up mode. If it has locked up the accessories will work after the battery is charged back up , but the power to the starter will be cut off and it wont turn over. You need to do the 30 minute learn procedure. A GM dealer will print it out for you and you can do it yourself. It's very simple if you follow the procedure exact. hope this helps and good luck.

SOURCE: Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

Your engine computer is bad. It's a good thing that you mentioned about the check engine light dying also, as this is a classic sign of a bad ecm. I have repaired more than one of these Jeep computers, replacing the three power capacitors located inside the computer, and they have worked for years afterwards. If you don't have the skills or knowledge to repair the ecm, get yourself a rebuilt ecm unit and swap it out.

Problems starting


First of all...... Why do you have a ignition interlock device on your car?? Is it a breath analizer from the courts ?? If so..... this device may be the problem..(defective part). If it's not a court issue breath analizer, then remove it and see if the concern is still present ?!! So .... when you say that the car will not start,,,,, does the engine crank over and won't start ?? or you turn the key and the engine does nothing ??? it makes a difference .... I'll need to know this before I can help you !!

99 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0L Car will start but won't stay running unless you keep giving it gas


I had the same problem. My car sat for a few days and when i went to start it i heard an extremely loud pop (kind of like a backfire). After that it would start and sound fine, but die 2 seconds later. Thank god my bf is a mechanic he knew instantly that the pcv valve hose that connects to the intake manifold unplugged itself. He plugged it back in and it runs fine now. I didnt however get a check engine light, but i only tried to start it twice before he fixed it because i was scared it jumped time.

Yesterday i charged my Battery and started my 99 expedition,it was running fine and 2 minutes later the starter started going off. I turned the engine off and took the keys out. 15 minutes later i hear...


Hi,
Sounds like u have stuck solenoid, shorting the connector to run the starter! Better go to ur favorite garage, pull down that stuck starter and check the solenoid. It must have been dirty, cause the solenoid didn't retract at all!
hope that helps u out!

2000 ford zx2 shreded serpentine belt in half while driving after replacing car wont start


More detail would be helpful. By not start, that could mean the engine rotates but won't start or you turn the key and nothing happens.

Since you do have a 2000 model I can tell you that they had issues in that model year with crank walk. The thrust bearing in some engines was too small and would allow the crank the move side-to-side (transversely) in the block. Some symptoms included knocking, engine dying on turns, timing or serpentine belt failure....
