Asked in European Cars, Car Starting Problems, Symptoms
What are the symptoms of the starter or alternator going bad in you car?
If the starter motor is not turning the engine over correctly, this might be because the vehicle battery is flat. If the battery is not charged, this may be because the alternator is not charging correctly. The recommendation here is to pop along to a local garage or autelectrician asking them to check the charge of the battery, the alternator output, and the starter motor operation if necessary.

What is the clicking sound on my 1995 ford pickup starter?
I'm guessing it clicks but won't start? If that's the case its the starter drive going out to engage the flywheel but the starter motor is not turning. Probably needs a starter but you should check to make sure there is correct voltage in system (battery & alternator is o/k) and that the wiring is also o/k to the starter & at the battery.

Why is your car dragging when turning over?
Your timing could be off, Your starter could be going bad, or you could have a low battery.The battery is the simplest to start with. You could go to Auto Zone and they will check your battery for you. Also talk to them about your starter and your timing. Low battery, faulty alternator, worn stater, corroded connection
Asked in Alternators, Acura Integra
Why Acura Integra will not start and alternator clicks when turning key?
I seriously doubt that it's the alternator that's doing the clicking. Most likely it's the starter. Check the battery, a discharged battery can cause that problem. Have the battery charged then start the vehicle and drive it to a shop that can check the charging system. Many auto parts retailers will test the charging system for you.

What is wrong with your car if the electricity turns on but the engine does not turn over?
The mechanical connections that supply electrical current to your starter are subject to corrosion due to electrolysis, and thus loosening of the connections, which is the most likely culprit here. Inspect, clean, and tighten all connections from battery to starter, and from alternator to battery once a quarter for best results. It is also likely that although your electricity appears to be on, as you have some lights, any load put on the system will reveal that your battery is almost fully discharged; try honking the horn, or turning on the headlights to test this, and suspect alternator to battery connections before troubleshooting for a bad battery and alternator.
Asked in Auto Parts and Repairs
An engine cranks slowly when the starter is activated Technician A says the starter circuit should be checked Technician B says the engine timing should be checked Who is correct?
a, the battery condition should be checked first to make sure that its capable of turning over the starter, a weak battery will cause the majority of starter problems, if the battery is fine then its more than likley to be a problem with the actual starter or poor connections on the starter, i have only ever had 1 with a wiring problem, as for the timing out it will not cause slow cranking unless its well out causing piston to valve contact this is only possible if the belt has slipped or it was timed up wrong on refitting a new belt so b is highley unlikley but not impossable. Checking the timing went away with the distributor.
Asked in Suzuki Sidekick

Anyone know why the engine diagnosis lamp on a Peugeot 405 stays on and starter motor seems to have trouble turning the engine initially but eventually does and starter motor recently changed?
i would hazzard a guess at the lamp stays on due to the fault not being taken out of its memory, if the problem has been fixed you need to clear its memory, as for the starter motor problem i had this and it was down to cranking power the starter motor demands so much in the begining and if your alternator is not charging you battery proply that could you problem, you can get this checked at any local garage
Asked in Car Starting Problems, Chevy S-10
Why wont the engine crank over on a 1994 Chevrolet s-10?
That's insufficient information. In general, "crank over" means that the starter is not turning the engine when you put the keyswitch to the "start" position. The starter can fail to engage because of a failed starter, solenoid, keyswitch, neutral lockout switch, faulty battery, failed alternator or just about anything that would drain the battery.
