Issues with a Vehicle Not Starting Up

We all have those mornings where we are running around the house trying to get the kids ready for school and they can’t find their homework, change their minds about what they want to wear for the day, and find every distraction possible to prevent leaving on time. Once you get everyone situated in your high-quality used vehicle from Poulin Auto Sales, you go to turn the ignition…and it won’t start! Oh no! What is wrong?

Reasons Why a Vehicle Won’t Start Up

There are a few possible reasons why your vehicle is not starting up.

The first one is a possible dead battery. Did you accidentally leave your headlights on last night after coming home? Or is your battery more than three years old and has experienced temperature extremes in the winter and summer seasons? If there is still a little juice in your battery, you will just need to jump it and let it recharge for a little while. Otherwise, you will need a fresh new battery.

Another possible explanation of why your vehicle isn’t starting is that starter has failed. This is typically caused by a cable in the electrical system that has corroded.

Finally, there could be a problem with your vehicle’s alternator.
