sounds like you need a new starter could be several things; 1. Check the battery Voltatge >10V. 2. Check the Starter and Starter Sloinoid (Take to Kragen or other parts store to test. 3. Check the Voltage coming out of your Alt. Should Be ~13V (If car is running). Does the car run if you jump it? My guess it probaly the Battery (May need charged) or Altanator not charging to proper voltage.

A bad starter. A loose connection @ the terminal ends-the battery cables-the starter solonoid-IF IT has Rubber covers around the battery ends corrosion from battery acid could cause it.EVEN a bad ground on the engine from the battery 2 the frame.(battery cables) The battery cable ends could be corroded and should be cleaned. The next step would be to check the starter selenoid and then the starter.

Check your alternator and your connections form the battery to the Starter. You may just have a bad connection If that does not work, your solenoid on your starter has gone bad, a new solenoid or starter may be needed. Check the start switch on the clutch pedal if so equiped.

How can you tell your starter is going bad on 1991 Toyota 4 runner?

Not sure if its the starter or the battery? Check the battery at a store. They can do a check on it for free. If its good then the starter could be bad. Bad starters don't work or they work intermittently. Usually just ehear a click and then when you retry it starts. That's the symptoms. Most places can also check the starter for you.

Why would a 1984 cutlass supreme v6 click and then sound like it want to start but don't?

The 'click' is probably the sound of the starter solenoid, but if nothing else happens, either the battery is flat, or the starter motor is faulty. -First check battery charge with a meter, charge it if needed. If the battery is good then check the connections at starter, make sure it has a good ground. If still not working , remove the starter and bench test it. -follow procedures in your manual for this.

1992 Ford E-350 diesel will not start - batteries starter test good but single click only?

If the battery and starter check out good and you are only getting a single click, the problem lies in the starter solenoid or relay. Not sure where the relay might be but the solenoid is usually where the positive battery from the starter connects to. There are at least two wires at the solenoid - the battery cable and a thin wire. check the remote starter solenoid usually monted on right side of engine bay

Is it the starter or another problem if a 1990 ford bronco will not turn over even after attempting to jump start it?

Yes, most likely its the starter if the battery is fully charged and it still wont crank. When you turn the key, you should hear a click. That click is the starter engaging. No click, means the starter is no good.

Why is your 1995 Toyota 4-runner not turning over with a good battery?

Do you have any click in the starter itself but still not turning over? Then its the starter giving you fits. Replace it. If no click is heard then it could be a fuse or more likely the starter relay. Check them both before moving to the starter.

You should check your voltage on your battery first to make sure it is not dead. You should check your battery cables if your battery checks out to be fine

What causes a starter solenoid to click but the starter doesn't turn?

It could be that there is a bad connection between the starter solenoid and the starter, or that the starter motor itself has failed. Check the wires first. They're cheaper to replace. This also happens when the battery is very low, so it may be worth charging the battery if you haven't already eliminated that possibility.

Ford fiesta and it won't start i got a new starter motor but it still won't start what could it be?

Could be heater plugs if its a diesel or maybe the battery. Check the earth (ground) cables between the engine and body for cleanliness and security of connection. Turn the ignition key, you should hear the starter solenoid 'click'. If it does, the cable from the battery to the starter is a fused link, connect a starter cable between the battery and starter motor solenoid and try to start. If there is no 'click' the fault is either the ignition switch or the wiring from the solenoid to it. If the car is automatic it should only start in Park (P) and Neutral (N). check the operation of the gearbox start inhibit switch. If an aftermarket alarm is fitted check the security and cleanliness of the wiring connections, especially the immobilizer circuit.
