Check the fuel pump run relay under the hood in the power distribution box, it may be sticking and not allowing the pump to run after the key is released on start up, crank and run are 2 separate circuits on the pump. If these three elements are available in the correct ratio, then the car will run smoothly and will not stop.
The second problem could be that your alternator is bad and not charging your battery, in this case you will need to replace your alternator.
Car starts but wont stay running battery. If the car stalls even when the engine is warm, the cause is likely a faulty electric fuel pump. My jeep starts but won't stay running. I regrounded the battery to the body and now it wont start.
Why does my car start but wont stay running? Try changing the fuel filter and look for any disconnected or cracked vacuum lines. If those things are ok, do a voltage drop test.
I have had it in and out of the shop and now, it’s just sitting until i can afford to fix the next set of issues. It is definitely something to do with the cahrging system. Stopped (off) to eat for 30 minutes.
Had 2 alternators and a battery checked. Start the vehicle and leave it running. Reply to doctor automotive's post:
Car starts but wont stay running battery. Had to repeat ignition on/off, and several attempt starts before it would stay running. Fixya.com claims they have factory repair manuals, they have nothing of the sort, this is.
During cold starts, if this is not working properly, this may cause inaccurate fuel adjustments to be made resulting in the rough idle problem. If anyone has experience, please shed some light. The 3 core elements for the car to start and run are fuel, spark, and air.
No sputs or misses, just dies instantly. After a while, it will shut off due to a. Try adding some fuel injector cleaner and octane boost to the gas.
Are the dashboard lights dim? If one of the three elements fails to decrease or increases slightly, the ratio changes and the car will not have a smooth running. If it doesn't run after a jump, and the battery isn't bad, the something in your charging system isn't functioning properly.
Car starts but wont stay running, rpm up and down ! (this is a separate issue form your problem because if it does this it will not stay running even with foot on the pedal because it is a security shutdown.) hope you got it fixed by now anyway. The current problem here is that my car will start with a jump but won’t hold a charge.
I’ve been having a lot of trouble with my 2001 hyundai elantra. The wires that run to the stud on the alternator are the b+ output to the alternator fuse. The battery light and abs light come on and then if i hit the brake or turn the radio or lights on, the car shuts off.
The car should start immediately when it is jumped and it should stay running. No codes can be read so, i have no idea. My car has an automatic transmission.
If the problem only happens when the engine is cold, a bad electric sensor is likely to blame. Car starts but wont stay running battery leave a comment / start check the fuel pump run relay under the hood in the power distribution box, it may be sticking and not allowing the pump to run after the key is released on start up, crank and run are 2 separate circuits on the pump. If the car cranks but your not charging, then look at the alternator.
Fixya.com claims they have factory repair manuals, they have nothing of the sort. Any ideas as to what it could be????? Then car would start, but not stay running.
Bmw, acura, honda, lexus, toyota, 4) immobilizer is bad (don't think its this one though since car starts) 5) try another key. It you touched them to a ground while the battery was connected, you blew the alternator fuse.
I would look at an electronic reason as to why the car is stopping. My 93 z24 starts,but won't stay running. If the car won't crank and the battery is good then i'd start by looking at the terminals.
Usually, when the engine warms up and then stops, it is an indication of a problem with an ignition coil, ignition module or even the fuel pump. Battery was dead when trying to start, charged battery now won't stay running when started. Car starts but wont stay running, rpm up and down !
Another problem could be you have a clogged fuel injector or bad gasoline. If it doesn’t crank at all, check the battery condition. Then it will stay running.
If the engine cranks but won’t start, check for spark and fuel pressure. A faulty electric fuel pump is also a problem limited to cars with a fuel injection system. In some cases, it can also be a stuck thermostat causing the engine not to heat.
6) adjust lock nut from the shift cable link. Researched some solutions that i may think applies: I had to work so after work i went and got a new battery installed it and then all of a sudden the car starts for 2 seconds and shuts down unless i keep my foot on the gas pedal then it runs.
My car has 189000 miles. I was told there’s a miscommunication between the alternator & battery. Then drove 25 more miles and stopped (off) for 30 minutes with car (off).
The engine light only comes on when it stalls, then. Depending on whether the engine is hot or cold, there are a couple different reasons why a car might start with no problem but stall shortly afterwards. No, it was starting rough, the battery was the original which is 6 years old.
Will a bad cell or battery keep vehicle from running? 3) main relay is bad.
