Car Not Starting

You are rushing. You are in a rush. You’re out of the house, hopping into the back seat and jumping behind the wheel. You turn the key and the car will not begin. Time to cancel the meeting. But why isn’t the car going to begin? Many problems could prevent a car from starting, so let’s take a look at some of the more common problems to diagnose your problem. Clearly, your fastest and best choice is to call your nearest car repair shop and have it found and repaired!

Dead Battery

A dead battery is one of the common reasons why a car doesn’t operate. The battery is what keeps everything in the car going and nothing will operate if it loses power. You probably have a dead battery if there are no lights or gadgets and nothing happens when you turn the key.

Faulty Ignition

If your ignition is worn out or if it fails, you will start the car. Signs of bad ignition include not turning the key, flickering dash lights and functioning gadgets, but the car’s turning around and not running.

Bad Starter

When you turn your key and just listen to a single click or to a press, click, it is likely that your starter has gone bad.

Bad Alternator

The alternator charges the battery while the vehicle drives. If the alternator goes wrong, the battery will drain quickly and the car will not operate.

Fuel system problem

There are a few issues with which the fuel system could go wrong. When you have a blocked fuel filter, the gas can not enter the engine, or when your fuel pump fails, the car can not pump fuel to the engine.
