CHECK YOUR NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH.(IF AUTOMATIC TRANS) OR CLUTCH START SWITCH(IF MANUAL TRANS). IF YOU TURN YOUR KEY AND NOTHING HAPPENS JUST THE DASH LIGHTS COME ON , IT MEANS THAT YOU HAVE AN OPEN IN THE STARTING CIRCUIT. FIRST TRY MOVING BACK AND FORWARD YOUR GEAR SHIFTER, IF THE NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH IS MIS ALIGNED MOVING THE SHIFTER SOMETIMES WORKS.(THEN TRY STARTING) IF NOTHING HAPPENS YOU MAY NEED TO CHECK THE CIRCUIT COMPONENTS.IGNITION SWITCH, BATTERY CONECTIONS(MAKE SURE THE TERMINALS ARE CLEAN AND THE CABLES ARE TIGHLY FITTED),STARTER WIRING,BAD GROUND.(ANTI THEFT DEVICES)
Have the battery and/or starter tested for free at your local auto parts store.
It can be a bad starter, but it can be a corroded battery cable. If you know the battery and cables are good, remove the starter and have it tested at most auto parts stores.It can be a bad starter, but it can be a corroded battery cable. If you know the battery and cables are good, remove the starter and have it tested at most auto parts stores.
It could but, have the battery tested before you purchase a new starter.
Starter solenoid. Can be tested by bypassing with a screwdriver. Possible low battery, bad connection at battery and cables or bad starter.
Check the connections at the starter, and at the battery. If they are good, remove the starter and have it bench tested at an Auto Parts Store.
Seized engine? Loose or cooroded battery terminal Bad starter solenoid? Bad neutral or clutch safety switch?
either clean and tighten cable connections or get battery tested. if not the battery, it is the solenoid or the starter If it is clicking and not starting at first, but starts after a few tries, its your starter taking a dump. Replace it.
Check the starter relay Check/Replace the cables going to the starter. It sounds like there is insuffient voltage and current going to the starter. Did you replace the starter? It is possible that the teeth are misaligned during re-installation. Did you foget some washers or shims? The selenoid could be bad.
check the starter motor.
have the battery tested, average life of a battery is 2 to 3 years. if battery is good check voltage regulator and starter motor. there is a short somewhere if the battery is good
If the starter clicks, but doesn't start the car, that indicates that the starter solenoid is working, but the commutator that actually spins the engine is not. Take the starter back and have it tested. The battery could also be at fault. If the battery doesn't supply enough power you'll get the same result. check the battery voltage first should be 12.6 volts if not jump the battery see if it starts.if it does bad battery.
Yes, it will. Remove the starter and have it tested at you local auto parts store. But make sure the battery is not the culprit.
What kind of car? Check the solenoid if not on the starter, like Ford. Re-check all the connections and the ground.
The O2 (Oxygen Sensor) has nothing to do with the engine not starting. If it will not start you either have no spark or no fuel. If the engine will not turn over, it is either the starter, battery, connections, ignition switch, or starter solenoid. Some starters have the solenoid built into the starter. Test the battery, and all connections. Remove the starter and have it tested at any auto parts store.
Might be your starter Question: How do you know the battery is in good condition? That clicking sound is the starter not having enough amps to turn the starter motor. Check the terminal for corrosion or a loose power wire to the starter solenoid. Also the wires to the starter relay. Take the battery to a auto parts store to be tested.
Weak battery have load tested weak starter have tested for load and draw check all connections for looseness or corrosion
You should locate and test the solenoid. Most have three connections. There is a large cable from the battery to the solenoid, from the solenoid to the starter and from the start switch to the solenoid. The power terminals to the battery and the starter are large and have large cables. The starter switch connection is much smaller. Turning the key to 'start' provides a low current voltage to the solenoid causing the solenoid relay to close and power from the battery cable to connect through to the starter. If that voltage is present then the solenoid or the wiring between the solenoid and battery or solenoid and starter is suspect. If that voltage is missing then the starter switch or solenoid feed line may have failed.
Have you tried placing the car in park and or nuetral? possible neutral safety switch failure.
Have you tested the battery to see if it has power in it? If it has have you made sure the contacts are good? If they are is there a fuse that has blown.
Sometimes there can be enough power in the battery to run electrical things but not enough to start the engine. You need to get the battery tested to see if it will hold a charge.You can try to jump start it using another battery. If it will not start this way,try charging the battery first before going on to the starter. If it turns out to be the starter, you can have it rebuilt. This can run about 20.00-40.00.
Have you had the alternator tested? It may not be regulating the energy to the battery, causing it to drain
Well first try the easy part take the battery out and go get it tested if its still good move on to the next part take the alternator out and take it to an auto parts store and get it tested. I had same problem it turned out to be starter ashort in starter will also drain battery
Corroded battery cables. Other than that you probably need to remove the starter and have it tested.
Have the starter tested at your auto parts store. Sounds like a bad solenoid or bad starter.
It may be possible that the wire connections on the starter or battery are broken or corroded. It could be your starter relay. Or your starter should be tested to see if it needs replaced.
