My car does not start, it stopped working since last night 05/15/2008. I drove it all day long without a problem, until after 9:00 PM when I stopped at a nearby pharmacy for just a few and the car died. The battery seems to be fine and so does the alternator. Tried a jumper cable nothing happened. Just finished running a "CarMD" test and no problems were reported. Do you know what could possibly be the problem?
You may have a faulty fuel pump, you can turn the key without starting the vehicle and listen for a humming noise from the fuel tank area if you hear it your fuel pump should be ok. Faulty fuel pumps usually will not set a code either.
There are many reasons why a vehicle might not start. It could be the starter, or depending on the mileage, even a broken timing belt.
CarMD is looking for things that set codes, many times a no start is not caused by something that a sensor detects.
I would suggest having the vehicle properly diagnosed by a technician. Good Luck.

There are many situations that can cause a vehicle to not start. I suggest taking your vehicle to a qualified technician so that they can perform tests on it to properly diagnose the problem.
