I have a 200 firebird also and this has happened to me several times. What it is, is a problem with the igition lock cylinder. When you turn the key, all the accessories come on but the motor doesn't even try to turn. It's because even though you have turned the key as far as you can, the key for some reason is getting caught on accessories. It usually will start eventually. I've had mine replaced several times.
Also bear in mind that one of the causes of ignition lock degradation is having a lot of weight on the key. If you have a very large keyring, consider using a separate keyring with just the car key on it.
#2 Hello, this is randall if it clicks at all it could be starter sylynoid,if dash lights go dim after the click you may have bad or dirty connection at batt,eng ground or starter check all terminals. someone.
Is it a standard or automatic transmission? If it is a standard it could be the safety switch on the clutch pedal that is malfunctioning.
The battery in the vehicle you are jumping has to have some life to it and capable of taking a charge. If it is stone dead and not capable of taking a charge it won't take a jump.
There could be a bad sylanoid or a bad starter...
The battery on the car you're jumping is too weak. Let the donor car charge the battery for about 10 minutes before you attempt to start it. If that does not work the battery has a dead cell and needs to be replaced.d
your battery will make a big spark or your battery could blow up.
I assume you mean a car battery. Yes, you can jump your lawn tractor with a car battery, following the usual precautions for jumping any vehicle.
If done correctly, no.
Ground it first with the negative.
No, always connect the negative last.
If the tractor had a battery in it when you were jumping it, there is a chance that the battery is bad. Try unhooking the tractors battery and trying again. Hook your jumper cables to the battery cables themselves without being attached to the battery. If it runs then just replace the battery. A battery with a short in it will keep the mower from charging and could cause it to die. If there was no battery in the tractor when you were jumping it, then the tractor is not charging and will have to be diagnosed as to what the problem is.
Negative to Negative, and Positive to Positive.
Not if you jump it from the battery or electrical system of another car.
take the terminals off the battery and run a wire brush through them, or sandpaper.
Yes connect the positive first to the positive battery post, and then connect the negative ground to the engine somewhere and not to the battery.
If your car makes a clicking sound when you try to start it, try to jump the battery. If that starts it, check the electrical system and if it was the battery, replace the battery. If jumping it does not fix it, have a mechanic look at it.
nothing will happen it will just send a charge of electric current to the end that isn't connected to the battery. hope i helped you sincerely, Blake
Your mainfuse is at the starter relay follow the red battery wire and it goes to that relay look under the plastic cover

Try jumping it off. If it cranks remove the + side on the battery. If it shuts off the alternator is bad .If it does not shut off clean the battery terminals . Have the battery checked at the Auto Zone.
You do not recharge your car battery with another car, when you connect the batteries together to get your car started, it is called jumping it, and only partially gets the battery working again. It should not be attempted if you do not know what you are doing because it can be dangerous.
don't know American cars but with most modern cars i would use a back up battery as it can save a lot of hassel jumping to another car will do
Try removeing the battery connections, and cleaning them. Often, the symptoms you describe occur when the battery connections have corroded. use jumper cables and another vechile jumping to your battery, if it starts, then it is battery related
Most newer cars are sensative to jump starting. When you were jumping the car was the cables connected correctly? Check some fuses you may have blown a fuse somewhere.
