Q: Car not starting for some reason

asked by on

My car won't start, but I am not sure what the issue is.

Usually when a vehicle will not start it is caused by one of three systems. These systems include the starting, ignition, and fuel systems. The battery, starter, and battery cables make up the starting system. If any of these parts have failed the vehicle will not start. The ignition system consists of spark plugs, ignition coils, wiring, and a computer. If any of these parts have failed the engine also may not start. Finally, the fuel system consists of the fuel pump, tank, filter, injectors, wiring, and a few other parts depending on the vehicle. Once again, if any of these parts have failed the vehicle may not start. I would recommend having these three systems inspected by a qualified technician in order to diagnose your problem.
