Discussion Starter #1
So I got to a gas station went inside and when I came back my car would not start.

When I turn the key all my electronics come on radio lights ect. I try to start it electronics go off for a second no crank.

A friend was able to push me downhill and I was able to do a rolling start. Anyway I thought it might be the battery or the starter.

I checked the battery and it's good, also it seems the starter is good as well. Wondering what this could be is it just my starter fuse? Or something with my ignition?

Not sure why it works when I do a rolling start.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like starter solenoid. If the starter or battery was going you would tend to have it crank but slowly until it dies. Could possibly be an issue with the relay for the starter, or the earth or power cables as well.

How did you confirm the starter was ok?

If all the lights on the cluster go out when you try to crank it, check you battery cables for corrosion. Take them off, clean the post and cables and tighten them again. Check to see if the metal clamps on either cable are corroded or missing (eroded)
