Last Sunday my battery was dead, I got a jump start from a professorial battery charger, car started fine, got to church, after car would not start, had it towed to where I can buy a new Battery, car still will not start, where is the starter relay?, is there a fuse link for the starter any where?
A starter does drain a battery. The battery holds a charge so that you can use your starter to start the car. After the car is started the alternator recharges your battery and runs your car and all it's accessories. If your car won't start or is having a hard time starting you can drain your battery by repeated unsuccessful attempts to start it.
Go to the mechanic instantly
it needed a new battery duhh
When opened by the starter switch, it sends electricity from the battery to the starter motor to start the car.
check the starter
What kind of car? Check the solenoid if not on the starter, like Ford. Re-check all the connections and the ground.
i have same car and after changing battery and terminals i found out it was th oxygen sensor
new battery installed . push starter and all I get Is a humming sound . wont turnover though
starter relay , up of the battery , open ignition on , place car on park and jump it.
usually its the starter or the battery.. depends
Check your earth (ground) connections battery to chassis & battery to engine / gearbox.
check your battery cables and you ground. You may want to check your alternator, if the car only starts when jumped started. IMprovement to answer: If the new battery doesn't start the car, obviously it's not the alternator causing the car not to start... Check the starter relay under the hood if it is equipped and if that works then check the starter solenoid located beside the starter motor. If that's working then you can be pretty sure it's the starter motor causing your problem - maybe worn brushes or excess resistance in the circuit.
mabe the starter solenoid
Is there power to the starter "S" terminal? What car?
Check the battery cables or starter.
Check Battery cables for tightness and lack of corrosion May be starter solenoid May be starter May be Neutral safety switch
First, turn on the headlights. Now, have someone watch them as you try to start the car; do they get dim? If so, the battery is in need of a charge; If not, you need to check your connections at the starter. You may have a bad starter, starter solenoid, or connection.
needs new battery or starter drawing too much current
Maybe the car needs gas.
Could be a variety of things? The starter is out. You need new spark plugs. Are the positive and negative cables connected, tightly?
If the remote car starter stopped working after a new battery was installed in the remote, the remote needs to be reprogrammed. If the remote starter stopped working after a new battery was installed in the vehicle, the computer might need to be reset by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes.
You either have a corroded or loose battery cable connection at the battery, a defective or drained battery, defective starter relay or starter.
