It seems that you are replacing parts hoping to solve the problem and spending money unnecessarily. If you mean that the engine is rotating but not starting, do a methodical search for the problem. (1)Check for compreesion at all cylinders. If compression varies from high to low from cylinder to cylinder, you may have a burnt valve, a blown head gasket, or a cracked cylinder head. (2)Check the wiring for a burntout fusible link in the starting circuit. (3)Check for spark at the spark plugs, (4)check for spark at the distributer, check rotor for wear and cap for cracks or crud at the contacts. (5) check for spark at the coil and check for spark there, if no spark there, the trouble is in the wiring. (A)If you get spark at plugs, problem may be no fuel getting to cylinder, disconnect fuel line at the carbureter and check for fuel. If no fuel coming out, next step would be to disconnect the fuel filter on the engine side of the flow. If no fuel, filter may be dirty. Disconnect hose at other side of filter, if no fuel, then fuel pump is At Fault. etc. I would recommend you go to your local library and checkout a manual - it is certainly worth the trip and gives a lot better ways of trouble-shooting the no-start problem. Good luck.

Can a starter solenoid drain a battery?

Yes, a starter solenoid can drain a battery. When a starter solenoid is not working properly it can actually keep rotating the starter after the car's ignition is turned off. Since it requires a battery to actuate the starter, the battery will eventually be drained of power.

What can cause low cranking amp on 1996 mercury sable with good battery and alt?

Try replacing the starter. If by low cranking amp you mean the starter is not rotating or is rotating very slowly, there are two possibilities: (1) The battery is not the correct one for your vehicle - you probably need a battery with more amps output. Check at your local auto parts store for the correct battery for your vehicle. (2) The starter is either stuck or "dragging". Dragging is caused by worn bushings, allowing the starter to drag against the armature within the starter, rotating v-e-r-y slowly or not at all. You will definitely hear a grinding or dragging sound as the starter tries to rotate. If the starter does not turn at all, the starter drive may be locked up, or it may be burnt out.

What causes a Ford Windstar to not start - just clicks?

If the starter is "clicking" then check the battery to make sure that is has enough juice to turn the starter. If the battery is good. It could be your starter solenoid is bad. Most of these are built into the starter nowadays. You will have to have the starter changed. I am betting on the battery especially if it is older. Another culprit could be your alternator failing to charge your battery.

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.

What is wrong when after you changed your starter in 1996 cavalier with 2.4L that makes battery drain while car is running?

So, what you're saying is that your car isn't charging the battery since you changed the starter... is that right. If so, my guess is that you accidently left off or possibly even burned out the fusible link between the battery cable and the alternator. If this is the case, that's why it won't charge. So, make sure yoiu've still got a connection between the wire between your battery cable at the starter and the alternator.

What should you check next if you already replaced the battery and the starter and your vehicle still will not start?

Since you changed your battery and starter I'm assuming you are getting fuel and spark is your problem. You should check your starter relay, the wires from the relay to your starter, the wires from your battery to the relay, the wires from your locking cylinder to the relay, and your locking cylinder. You might also check your alternator. You can take it to a parts store to have it bench tested for free.
