solenoid or relay switch
mabe the starter solenoid
If your car works fine when its not cold and only wont start when its cold outside then its a bad solenoid and most likely the one that regulates voltage to your starter. This solenoid can not be replaced with out replacing the starter because they are combined. Unless you have a aftermarket starter that will let replace the solenoid without replacing the starter. So all you have to do is take it to a shop and have a new starter put in and your prob should be fixed.
Check the battery cables. If there is no corrosion and you have good connections, then the starter solenoid/relay may be at fault.
Replace it with a new radio or use car insurace
Low voltage. Clicking is the starter solenoid. Low battery on the good car, bad cables or a bad connection. If they are all good, then the solenoid may be bad.
Check the 96 Caddys starter solenoid. Also check the wiring between the battery and the solenoid for any breaks or loose connections.
why my car wont start? i have a 1994 Toyota tercell and it wont start up.
if it does not turn over and no clicking noise but headlights on, check start fuse and relay if it doesnt turn over and clicks probable starter solenoid
"hot start" issue. Could be the solenoid, or starter itself.
you can tell when your breaks start to Squeak or the car wont slow down when turning
Get a big hammer and start beating on the car from the front to the back and keep repeating.
Sounds like you might have a bad starter solenoid. Test your battery terminals first to see if they are loose or corroded.
seized engine? defective or disconnected solenoid? starter not grounded? starter is engaging a damaged gear?
Replace the fuel filter as it is more than likely clogged.
You need to replace the ignition switch. Too much play in it.
if clicking during starting, solenoid, but car should not start with a bad solenoid.
Replace the battery or the carbarreta
If the key is on and the shift is in park you can safely start the unit by engaging the solenoid with a short jumper wire.
Turning the key sends power to the solenoid and the solenoid sends power to the starter. If the engine cranks, the solenoid is OK. If not then checking the solenoid is a good idea.
Starter solenoid shot. Replace Starter.
A low or dead battery. Loose or dirty battery cable connections. Faulty starter. Faulty starter solenoid.
It can be a defective starter assembly that causes this problem. There are two parts to a starter assembly: the starter motor and the starter solenoid. The offending culprit is usually the starter solenoid, and it should be replaced.
How do you know that it is your car?
