Check the electrical ignition switch located on the transmission. You may have a loose connection or a bad ground in one of the wires. It is a short and most likely a bad ground ... 1996 GMC Sierra

Steering Column Cover and Ignition Cylinder were damaged when someone broke into my 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais. I have been able to start by using pliers to pull lever toward me to get starter to turn over. This worked well until a few days ago when it started to be too much strain on old battery. I have replaced battery with new one; Engine will try to turn over, firing occasionally (rarely) but not catch long enough for the engine to run. Now I am starting to be confused on whether I have

Problem started when son left inside lights on overnight. Charged battery and drove for about 10 minutes and car died. Replaced battery and car would not start. Replaced starter and car will still not start. Will not even turn over: only goes 'click'. need help. Oil was a little low, but engine never got close to hot let alone overheated. any ideas?


Chechk and double check the cables from the battery to the ground and to the starter. One of these may be bad. I assume when you replaced the battery it was fully charged? The clicking sound lets me know your getting power to the key switch and volta ... 2001 Dodge Intrepid

I have a 199 chevy blaxer four door-403 EFI engine. The last few days it been hard to get the car to crank over. Last night I went to start the car and the starter was hesitant to crank the engine over. This morning I tried to start the vehicle but the starter din.t make a sound so I waited five minutes and it bearly crank the car. I went to work and around 2:00 PM, I tired to start the car but it did not even make a sound. I replace the battery with a brand new one. I turn the key and the


Hi, if the engine won't crank or cranks slowly when you attempt to start or jump start the engine (and the battery is fully charged), you can focus your attention on the starter circuit. A quick way to diagnose cranking problems is to switch on the h ... 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

P1320 code appeared and we replaced the cam position sensor. It ran OK, but started rough until warm and next code showed #1 cylinder misfire. Replaced #1 coil and it ran great. Then later the engine light came on again and after engine shutoff it failed to crank--not even a click. Battery checked out OK. Next day (and since) it started up fine and runs great. P1320 code reads out again. Could it be ignition relay; solenoid; or does it need a starter?


I just had the same problem in my bmw 325i. Probably vaccum leak or exhaust leak. Check that nothing came loose in these areas. It takes time for your car to learn the new CPS (cam pos. sensor) so give it a few days and reset the code again and see i ... 2000 Nissan Maxima

I have a 2002 chrysler concorde limited 3.5 l engine. I have been having problems with it starting. I replaced the battery, the ignition, and the starter. When I go to start it, it just makes a loud clicking sound and doesn't even sound as if it will turn over. It will start however with a jump. My friend suggested maybe the battery doesn't have enough cold crank amps? I gave the dealer my make and model. They gave me a battery with 600 ccamps. Could it be that easy? Please help I have sunk enou


It sounds like a bad connection in all honesty. if you havent replaced terminals do that. any corrosion you should clean check the cables also and see if they are corroded ander neath the coating I have seen terminals that were pretty tight but yet ... 2002 Chrysler Concorde

My 2001 ford taurus with the standard V6 engine (200,000 miles) has alot of trouble starting... The battery is just 2 months old, and the mass airflow sensor, timing sensor, and starter have been replaced. It usually takes at least two tries to actually start the engine. But this morning (around 40-45 degrees) the car wouldn't start and in fact, wouldn't even sound like it might start.

Im no expert but may have experienced an almost the same issue that you have.with all the items you have replaced, you may want to check on the starter solenoid and the ignition switch itself.hopefully this will give you a new ... GMC Suburban

Somedays my car will start ok, and often, there is not even a cranking sound from the engine. The dash lights are on, but only a soft clicking sound is heard. The battery starter, and alternator checks out ok. I replaced the fuel filter, and spark plugs. It is a stick shift. when it runs, it runs very good. The intermittent starting seems to be a mystery to me. Also it seems like when the engine is starting to crank, forcing the key forward seems to keep it cranking continuously as if there is a


A common problem is the ignition switch.When it does not start....with the car in park or neutral jump it at the starter....or check for power at the small wire at the starter while trying to crank the engine.Power in the small wire ... Honda Prelude

The battery is fine. we tried charging it. we checked the oil, fuses, and starter to make sure everything was connected. It won't start or even turn over. The lights and evrything turn on like normal but no engine response. when we bypassed the solenoid it turned over but did not start. there is about a quarter tank of gas in it still. the fuses are good and the starter wiring is all connected. We have had to replace the starter once before about a year ago but everything worked fine after that.


Two things it could be.... one is the starter relay located in the fuse panel near the battery. the other is that the starter is failing. have someone attempt to start it and hit the start with a hammer... not hard enough to break it.... if it turn ... 2003 Pontiac Grand Am

You have two things at the starter neede to turn over the engine besides a good ground. The larger wire has battery voltage all of the time. (around 13 volts) The smaller wire gets positive voltage when the ignition key is turned to start only. You n ... 1987 Ford Aerostar

I have an olds cutlass supreme 72.  I have replaced the voltage regulator, generator, and battery several times, even all at once.  Have cleaned and replaced the grounding wire and belt that connects to the engine block.  My generator light is coming on dimly.  It is only when I rev the engine when in park that the light shuts of momentarily, and only when pressure is applied to the gas peddle.


First, I think you will have an altenator in the car, not a generator. This sounds like a grounding problem to me... try adding a grounding wire from your engine block to the frame of the car and the firewall (I am assuming your battery grounds direc ... 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

My '93 F250 5.8 l Automatic was turning over slowly when cranking to start. Replaced battery no change; Then after sitting for 2 mo. turning key to start produced only a click and dead gauges (battery power to starter), charged battery, no change; replaced starter, no change. What is next? Engine is not frozen (turns over with wrench). Engine ran fine once started.

Starting problems Frequently my engine won't start. When turning the key, you can hear the starter relay clicking, but the starter motor won't turn. Some days it starts right away, others after a few clicks, and others after 30-40 clicks. But it always starts. And it starts strongly, not like when the battery is weak. I can see no link between whether the engine is cold or hot. I've replaced the battery, cleaned the contacts on the battery. I suspect the starter motor, but I would have expected


It sounds like either the starter relay or the solenoid the contact points in it may be burnned if so it wont make a good connection ... 2001 Chrysler Concorde

My honda 1991 crx model hf will not start. when I turn on switch starter does not engage so engine does not even try to turn over. lights, horns, and fans are strong so I believe it not to be battery problem. dash board lights light up when I turn the ignition....car beeps to let me know that I'm trying to start it. I've just hours ago had the main relay switch replaced(pgm-fi) believing that that was the problem but car is doing the same thing again. Go to start it and it is dead. I

Toyota Hilux 2.9L Turbo Diesel, hard to start problem got progressively worse. Battery pulled down, fresh battery got it started, but after driving and making two or three stops, takes a long time to start or won't start because battery is now dragged down.

Still will not start.Does not seem to be cranking fast enough even with repaired starter and new battery

1997 Crown Victoria, 4.6L V8 engine Starter has been "dragging". Usually have to jump the engine to get it to start, and the starter still "drags", barely cranking over. It will start, eventually, or did. Now the engine won't even turn over, but the battery is brand new, and I had the battery and alternator tested and they were charging just fine. Was told by someone at an autoparts store to manually connect the starter via a screwdriver on the starter solenoid, connecting two bolts. Nothing hap

1994 Isuzu Trooper engine won't start - lights in dash and vehicle all work, but engine won't even click to turnover. Battery was replaced last year, took her out for a long drive yesterday morning and ran errands in afternoon. This morning, nothing. Starter? Loose wires? Suggestions?

After changing the starter and alternator and installed a new ignition switch my 1997 Nissan p/u started up fine. Drove it around town, stopped, turned off the engine and it started again right away.
