The year 2020 has given me one last punch. This morning, I turned on the car just fine. A minute later, my toddler said he wanted to go to the restroom, so I pulled back into our place an turned it off. 10 minutes later, the car won't start.
- The car has 30,000 miles.
- The battery has charge. I tried jump starting it (just in case), but it did not make a difference.
- I tried it with the key touching the start/stop button (in case the fob battery was dead). The start button light does turn on green when the fob touches the button, so that means that it is not related to the security system.
- The started does crank. It gives one or two cranks and then stops and clicks (the car has always had a weak crank IMO).
- I have worked on the car or messed with any electronics.
- I can't find any blown fuses.
- I swapped the STOP fuse and the STARTER fuse with other good ones, but it made no difference.
- No check engine light.
- Bad crankshaft position sensor (CKP) or camshaft position sensor (CPS) can prevent the engine from starting. Also, a bad throttle position sensor (TPS) may cut off the spark to the cylinders.
- Starter motor
- Bad fuel pump
