Unless something in the steering wheel housing has broken yeah...last post has it. Your starter has been "welded" to the copper ring in the solinoid. You might get by with just smacking it with a hammer, but don't think it will not stay on next time.
Stater bendex/new starter.or relay.but start with new starter.PS make sure your cables are clean AND THE BSTTREY IS HOT.a low or bad batt can do the same thihg

Won't start Had a new starter put in about 2 months ago. I tried to give a guy a jump start yesterday and today I stopped ,turned the car off, came back 10 mins. later and the engine wouldn't crank at all, just a loud clicking, I turned of A/C, fan, and radio then waited about 10 mins with no key and then it started right up a few more time until I got home and it sat for a few hours and now it won't start with jumpers or charger. Relay maybe? Or new Maintenance Free Battery?

My 2001 Chevy Silverado has 97,000 miles and the only problem i experience is that it struggles to start occasionally. If i turn the key right away it will turn over and not start, then it will always start on the second try. However, if i turn the key so that just the battery comes on, and then try to start the engine, it cranks right up.

Hey there, I have a P reg Audi A4 avant sport. The initial problem was that the ignition key did not spring back from cranking the starter motor, I believe this has caused my bigger problem which is that I simply hear a single click when I try to start the engine. It will bump start and the battery isn't dead, I have however bumped it and found a whistling noise emitted until the key was turned back one notch, I'm hoping this was the already turning engine making the starter motor spin rather th

Last week, my 1998 Lexus ES300 wouldn't start (clicking sound) and I thought it was the battery. I jump started it but noticed that it still made the clicking sound, for my first couple of tries, it did start on the 3rd attempt although it the engine cranked slowly while starting. This week, while trying to start, it made the same clicking sound, but if I kept turning the key off and on, it eventually started up (slowly). Any hints?

Truck starts intermittently, when ignition key is turned engine clicks but fails to start. After several attempts the engine will start. After driving approx 10 miles the engine is turned off and the key is re-tried. The engine starts right up. After truck has sat from 1-2 hours when the key is turned it fails to start. The ignition switch and battery have been replaced and the started relay has been checked. What is the underlying cause of the intermittent starting?

When we tried to start our 2007 Suzuki XL-7 this morning, we heard a loud crack (like an electrical spark). Now when you turn on the key. all lights, radio, etc. work fine.

Battery connections are good and battery is fine (all other electrical systems work fine and do not drag down when trying to start the car as would happen with a weak battery or bad battery connection).

I'm having an intermittent problem with my 07 Cadillac CTS. Car will crank but won't fire up and start. After 7-8 tries, it starts and runs perfect. Dealer claims they can't find the problem when in for service. Also, when attempting this start, I can turn the key forward to the start position, let go of it, and it will stay in the start position with the engine continuing to crank without starting. I have to manually turn the key backwards to stop the engine from continuing to crank.

My 2003 Grand Cherokee will not start (engine will not turn over)and the battery checks out ok. The cables and terminals have been cleaned at the battery and have good connection. With the key in accessory position, the radio and electric windows work but there is just "clicking" when you turn the key to start it. The engine will also not turn over when a battery charger is attached to the terminals for a jump start. Any ideas?

Started up my car and check engine light turned on. Drove down the road and got curious and decided to shut it off and try to start it back up. When I try to start it back up it would not turn over... it did not make any noise when I turned the key. I tried this about four times before it cranked and started up. I drove directly home and shut it off and it started right back up but the service engine soon light still stayed on the whole time.
