there may be a ground wire from the negative battery terminal that isn't making a connection

The battery could be (almost) dead, or a battery cable could be lose. I would start by verying these. Also could be: Seized engine Bad starter Bad starter solenoid

Sometimes there can be enough power in the battery to run electrical things but not enough to start the engine. You need to get the battery tested to see if it will hold a charge.You can try to jump start it using another battery. If it will not start this way,try charging the battery first before going on to the starter. If it turns out to be the starter, you can have it rebuilt. This can run about 20.00-40.00.

Dead battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Bad starter? Bad starter solenoid? Bad neutral Switch?

poor battery connection or battery itself high resistance in battery cables would be some things to check plus beanch test starter itself

Last Sunday my battery was dead, I got a jump start from a professorial battery charger, car started fine, got to church, after car would not start, had it towed to where I can buy a new Battery, car still will not start, where is the starter relay?, is there a fuse link for the starter any where?

Could be your battery, starter, ignition, check them... would start with the battery !

It can very well be the battery. Takes almost no amperage to operate a radio. I would suspect it is either the battery or the battery connections.

Corrosion on the wires, bad starter or starter solenoid, worn flywheel or flexplate, many things. Even just corroded battery terminals could cause no start.

Weak battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Starter solenoid?

User Avatar

Possible causes include a weak battery, battery connections, and a failed starter.

This could be the voltage regulator. Both the positive from the battery and the starter would be connected to it.

User Avatar

no if the car doesnt start check the battery and the alternator and the starter.

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 the wiring change the starter relay and clean ignition switch with electicial cleaner.

Assuming the starter does not crank over the engine. Bad starter, starter solenoid or relay. Bad battery. Loose/dirty connections between battery and starter. Bad or out of adjustment neutral safety switch.

User Avatar

if the battery is good, it is not the regulator.i would check all fuses first,then check starter solenoid and starter

User Avatar

Use battery load tester and properly test battery. When battery fails, replace it.

User Avatar

bad starter or bad connection to starter or bad ground on battery or starter

User Avatar

You may also have a faulty starter solenoid or starter Your battery is low, or you have a bad connection in your cables. -I would try to charge your battery first, but if that doesn't help then go ahead and have your starter looked at! :)

User Avatar

the battery my have a bad cell, or the starter may need to be replaced

User Avatar

If there is clicking, that means the car has power from the battery so the altenator and the battery are good. I would suggest that the starter is gone bad. It will eventually grind away to where there is no clicking.

Battery is weak,battery post connectors need cleaning or tightening up are the first things I would check.Cable going to the starter from battery loose at starter and finally the starter itself or the solenoid or relay may be bad,hopefully it is loose or dirty connections.Maybe all you need is a jump start if the battery is weak.And if it starts have it checked before it leaves you stranded somewhere.
