There can be several causes of this, the most common one is a flat battery. You can test for this by recharging the battery, or getting a "jump start" from another vehicle. If the vehicle starts OK on a fully charged battery, or with a jumpstart from another vehicle then you have either: The battery being discharged by some electrical device being switched on whilst the vehicle is parked, or the battery is not charging up properly during normal use of the vehicle. Another cause is a bad connection between your battery and the vehicle body. The bad connection can actually be the battery terminals, or at the junction of the battery cable and the vehicle body, or it could be the link strap between the body and the engine. The solution is to remove the connections from the battery, and undo the connections where the heavy battery cables meet the body and the engine, and clean them, removing any rust deposits and corrosion that may have formed on the mating surfaces. It is also possible that the copper in the battery leads has become "tired". Over time the copper leads can loose some of their efficiency in conducting electricity which can affect the starting ability of your vehicle, particularly in cold weather. The only remedy is replacement of the battery leads. The other possibility, and usually the most expensive one! Is that the actual starter motor may be worn out. The electricity is fed into the starters armature by a pair of brushes which are made from carbon. These can wear down and become effective, the surface and that they contact, the commutator can become damaged and ineffective.

battery is FLAT insufficient power to hold the starter solenoid in to start /turn engine over

Does the engine turn over and then make the clicking noise while trying to start, or does it not do anything but make the clicking noise when you turn the key. If its not turning over at all then it might be a battery problem, Try cleaning the battery terminals, and/or charge the battery, Could also be the starter solenoid, but start with the battery first.

Dirty fuel filters are a huge cause of this especially on diesels, I have replaced 3 this week all with the same symptoms. also check that the fuel pump is working. if it is trying to turn over,but it can't, you either have a bad starter,or a seized engine

Check for loose or corroded battery cables, burnt-out fusible link, or burnt-out main fuse in fuse panel.

Turn over a new leaf. Start over. Make a fresh start.

check all your battery connections and battery, then check your starter wire. mine was lose and the car wouldn't turn over my dad pushed it in while i was trying to start it and it cranked right up

User Avatar

A bad cam or crank sensor can cause a no start, but the engine will still crank or turn over.

Unless the issue is electrical I would stop trying to start it. If all the wires are snugged properly it should start. If the problem is in the timing belt installation you might bend a valve or otherwise damage the engine.

1. Does the fuel pump relay click on at all?

if it wont turn over at all you need a starter

User Avatar

I dont know what causes this, but my '98 Navi was doing the same thing. All I did was turn the ignition over, but not all the way (dont start the truck). Hold it in that position for about 5-10 seconds and then turn it over completely. The theft light will stop blinking and you should be able to start the vehicle.

When you say it will not start are you saying it will turn over but not fire or are you saying it will not even turn over. That bit of information is critical to an answer.If the engine turns over, check the fuel cutoff switch.

it doesnt start when its foggy out because all the wetness in the air

It a stupid security feature... All you have to do is to keep the key in the on position after trying to start the car. You will See a security light flash for exactly 10 mins, then turn it all the way off and it will start. Your car no longer recognizes the key.

This question needs mroe details is the air releasing coming from a rear air suspension or from the engine. when you try to start does it do anything at all click, turn over? did it do anything before this happened

They start trying around 2 weeks,then by 4 to 6 weeks they are all over the place.

User Avatar

Actually they can over time. It takes about a few years but if you start smoking again it will ruin all your progress and will have to start over the quiting process.

User Avatar

it could be the fuel filter is pluged or the fuel pump is out

User Avatar

You need more info posted for this. Does it turn over at all? Is the battery old and it turns over slow? Are you getting a gas smell while trying to start. Have to tried to remove a plug wire to see if there is spark only if you engine is turning over at all. So many answers to give, just not enough info given for me to try and answer.

User Avatar

What happens when you turn the key? Does it turn over but not start, or does it do absolutely nothing? Are there clicking noises or humming when you turn the key but nothing else? Be more specific please. There is absolutely no action, noise, clicking sounds at all. The dash lights up, radio will go on but no action at all. There is nothing elseโ€ฆ, truck won't turn over. Theft light keeps blinking and yes I do have the clutch and brake engaged.

Remove all spark plugs and turn it over to blow the water out. Change the oil/filter, install the plugs and start it up.

If starting all over on the laptop simply means restarting it, then you would simply turn it off and turn it back on. If it means, getting a new system, you would need to re-install the programs that you had on your old computer.?รฆ
