Have you ever thought about those horrid days when the car does not start? If you have left the lights, radio, or some other electric gadget on after parking the car, you know the problem – the battery is dead. Of course, there are other possible reasons that your car will not start.
In cold days
The engine runs but does not start – check the fuel supply to the engine. If all goes well, check if the electric spark reaches the spark plugs. During cold days, you face the same situation. Let your car warm up when it’s cold outside and give it some time to warm up. The machine makes a clicking noise, but it does not start. This sound usually means an exhausted battery. If not, check the wiring to the starter motor for a probable loose connection.
Remote control ignition
If your vehicle is equipped with a remote start system, it will allow you to boot up before starting. The exterior lights will shine twice, and the vehicle will start. It’s possible that the remote control has LED lights that turn green to inform you that your vehicle has started successfully, or flashing red if it was not.
If your vehicle has automatic temperature control, you can set this feature to commence when you start the vehicle remotely. A remote keyless ignition system, or “remote start system,” is a fairly complex system designed to start a car without the driver having to step in and start the engine manually.
The engine starts but dies – you will need professional help
No signal when turning the key in the ignition lock – if they appear to be corroded, use a screwdriver tip. Attempt to start the engine while continuing to insist on the ignition. With the key inserted, continue to give start pulses without returning to the ON/OFF position of the panel.
The engine starts, but it’s irregular and struggles to take turns. The fuel is probably dirty, or the fuel filter is clogged, and you have probably caught some dirt from the bottom of the tank. It could also be an injection problem, like the injectors or the power supply circuit. Check the glow plugs on diesel engines, check the spark plugs on petrol engines; if the problem persists then try replacing the diesel filter and check with a professional about the compression of the cylinders.
The actual remote start is a small piece of equipment that is installed in the vehicle itself. The box must be connected to the ignition switch, the power cable, the ignition wire, the starter cable, the brake cable, the ground wire of the vehicle, and the tachometer cable. When the boot receives the signal from the remote control, it connects all these systems. If you have any issues regarding cold days, always let your car warm up when it’s cold outside. It allows the engine to start causing the predefined settings such as heat to start up.
