Car will not start. The dashboard lights come on for the seatbelts, battery, oil, and engine when I try to turn the car on. Also there are three fuses on my positive cable on the battery and I was wondering could that be causing any problem?

    Try jumping the car if it jump starts you will need a battery, If that didn't work it could need a new starter relay or starter solenoid.

    The problem needs to be aproached with a system as any other problem. First get the car runing, then you can chek the alternator. If the battery is about 3 years or more old, better change it.
