First off, check the starter and make sure its bad. If it is, replace it. Secondly, make sure the battery just isn't a bit drained, if the battery doesn't have the juice it won't work right. Jump it! The follow two tips are not the best ways, but if you are stuck without being able to repair where its at, try these. BE SAFE! If a automatic, have someone hit the starter, while someone tries to start the car. Yes, I said hit the starter with something like a tire iron. Hit it like your hammering in a small nail, don't swing. Make sure you have it in park and the emergency break on, BE CAREFUL under the car. Things get hot and there are lots of moving parts to get hung up in ect... BE CAREFUL. If it is a manual transmission here is what you can do: If you are able to push the vehicle a distance (I'd get help) you can start it. If you push it forward put it into 1st gear(if backwards; reverse), press in the clutch, turn the key to "on", and push the car forward. Get some momentium (even a little will work), and as you pop the clutch out turn the key to start. You might have to try it a few times, but the transmission will turn the engine when you pop the clutch. This mimics a starter (kinda). Don't do this too much as it will wear your clutch and the trans. Good luck.

Why 1996 camaro won't start has no power to starter ignition switch is good?

1. bad starter selenoid 2. blown fuse in the circuit 3. bad ground at the starter (not likely, but possible) Start at the starter, with a test light, and work your way back through the curcuit until you find power. That's where the problem will be. If the starter has no power move to the selenoid. If the selenoid had no power in the switch circuit move to the fuse. If the selenoid has no power on the battery side move to the fusable link. Keep working your way to the ignition switch.

It is possible that the bendix or solenoid on your starter is bad. These allow the starter teeth to move forward to engage the flywheel. Take the starter to a auto parts store and have them check it.

How do you kick start a 1982 Honda XR500R?

Put the choke in the full choke position. Hold the compression release in, twist the throttle fully open and kick the kick starter 8 times. move the choke to the half choke position and kick the kick starter 2 times with the throttle closed move the kick starter so that you are at the compression point at the bottom of the kick starter stroke and then use the compression release to move the kick starter just past the bottom (full compression) position kick the kick starter from the top all the way through the compression stroke. This will usually start the bike in 1 to 2 kicks, Note: using this method, you do not have to "stand" on the kick starter. If you have enough momentum from the top of the kick stroke, you will have a very easy time of it.

How did cars start 1940s prior ignition keys?

In those days, the only way to start the car is to use the "starter lever" which is a long bar with male/female head/socket fitted to it and the car engine. You insert this through a hole in front, and rotate it a few times to start the car. Very similar to kick starting a motor bike. Self Starter was invented much later. When you had a manual starter car, and if you were to be frail and cannot start the car, then park the car in a slope somewhere near the house, and when the car starts to move, then engage the gear to "start it"

How do you bypass the starter so that you can start the vehicle even if the starters no good I tried hookin up boster cables to go direct and it started turning over like crazy. Did I mess it up bad?

You may not have hurt anything. The starter will spin as long as the cable is sending power to it. The ignition switch needs to be turned on to make this work. Touch the jumper cable to the starter connection. The starter will spin and start the engine, assuming that there are no engine problems. This is a dangerous move, because if the car moves or it is in drive, then the car will drive over you.

1997 Chevy Camaro won't start i replaced the battery n it still wont turn over lights horn and everything work but when i turn the key on it wont start click gauges don't move nothing?

Assuming you have checked that the battery cables are clean and tight on both ends and you do hear a click coming from the starter area, I'm going to say the starter/starter solenoid is bad. If you don't even get a click it may be the neutral safety switch.

How do you know if you need to change a starter or just a battery?

very simple. if your starter is bad your car battery should be fine.. so turn on the headlights and the car radio and open the windows. do the lights work? does the radio play? do the power windows work? if yes then the battery sounds pretty good! if your battery is low on amperage it will not be able to start your car but may work on some eleectronics. if the car will not start but seems to have a charge in the battery. you may want to get a bar or a long metal pipe and hit the starter a bit, this may move the starter enough to get it spinning again (happens alot with cadillacs)
