Car won't start

Asked by Nae0246 Dec 10, 2019 at 04:12 PM about the 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt

Question type: General

Can someone help me with finding out what might be
wrong with my car I just put a new battery in there, a new
starter in there, a new crank sensor, new spark plugs, new
coil packs and I'm still not getting it to start now I have
tried to jump it still won't start it sounds like it's trying to
turn over but the spark isn't catching it and starting it up. I
hooked up the scanner to it and only code came up was
for the air conditioning. Is there anything anyone could tell
me to try to help me before I do tow it?

Are the battery and starter cables tight and free of corrosion?

Yes because I just put brand new battery in a brand new starter in there

Still sounds like you are not applying enough voltage to the starter motor (even from a jump). That leads me to a connection problem (cables for alternator, starter, and battery), bad battery ground connection (maybe to the frame or engine), or you got a problem starter (even though it is new). I would suggest you have both the battery and starter load tested at a local shop. Alternator is probably not involved unless you can determine it is not sufficiently charging the battery.
