Answers :

If alternator is putting out at least 14 volts when running, and battery is about 13 or a little higher when car is off. it could be a bad cable from battery to starter, or a bad starter solinoid.
Yes it could be the starter or a bad connection. If the battery cables are dirty the same thing will happen. First start there take the cable ends off and make sure they are very clean and the posts also. Check the battery not only voltage but the amps, they are what the starter uses the most of. If the cables, battery, and all starter connections are good the starter is most likely the problem.

My dodge aries wont start every time. I turn the key several times and it makes a clicking sound before it tries to turn over and ever when the engine catches it wont start completely. I changed the alternator a year ago and know the symptoms that my car had then its not the same symptoms. I think it could be the battery or my starter. Does anyone have a better idea?

I have a 1992 Saturn sl2. I recently had to replace the battery and the starter. The car has been fine but one day it took a few turns of the key to start. When I reached my destination I turned off my car. Five minutes later it refused to start and a click click click sound started up by the starter under the hood. It repeatedly clicked while getting no power, and all my gauge needles dropped and wavered back and forth while my battery apparently died. Any thoughts on what could be causin

FIRST START IN THE MORNING CAR WILL NOT CRANK. IT MAKES NO SOUND. BUT AFTER TWO OR THREE TURNS OF THE KEY SO FAR IT HAS STARTED.BATTERY IS GOOD . A DIAGNOSIS OF THE STARTER AND ALTERNATOR SEEMS TO INDICATE THEY ARE GOOD. HAS ONLY DONE THIS TWICE.

Battery dead, or starter problem? My 1992 381i won't start. The battery has at least some juice in it (I can turn the headlights and interior lights on). But the digital clock has re-set to 0:00, suggesting there could be a battery problem. When I try to start, it won't turn over. After turning the key to "start" once or twice, I receive a rapid clicking sound. I tried to jump the car, but that had no effect. Don't know whether this is a starter problem, or a battery problem. Any thoughts?

I have a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager 3.3L When I try to start it, it wont. The problem is kind of hard to explain. When I turn the key over it will not start. The battery and altinator are fine.

I have a 1992 Honda Accord LX 1.8, Standard Transmission. I have replaced the starter in the car last spring, but it seems the starter is not working again. When the ignition is on, the lights come on and the heater blower works fine. The battery seems okay. However the battery terminals are cheap and have been pretty loose for a while. I was able to bump the car started, but once I shut it off it doesn't turn over again. The starter makes a clicking sound when I turn the ignition. I ha

Hi We have a 1998 volks golf. It will not start. Battery good, connections good. Seem to have pwer everywhere. Checked the little wire (someone told us to) going to the starter .. good.

I have a 1998 Chevy Blazer. All lights are working, battery gauge says 50%, yet I had to start it up last night with a jump. This morning, I started it up only after turning the key as far as I could and holding it for awhile. There was a clicking sound while turning the key. When it finally started, it accelerated on its own. Is the problem with the battery, spark plugs, starter or fuel line?

When my husband car is not hooked up to another battery it will not start at all nor does it makes noise. But when it is connected to another car it will somewhat start but it makes a loud clicking sound or clonking sound. also when the key is not in to start it it makes a dinging sound also... could it be the starter?

My starter on my 2002 Suzuki XL 7 died today in my garage. At first I thought it was my battery...battery is fine. I was told it sounds like my starter since there is not juice or sound when I turn the key except a clicking sound that has since stopped when I turn the key now. I had notice for the past few months that there had been some hesitation when I turned my key to start my SUV ...and then it would eventually catch and start. Now, it's completely dead. Where would I find the starter under


The first thing is to make sure the battery terminals and connectors are clean and free of corrosion so the starter can getr enough power to operate. To find your starter follow the large red wire that goes to the bottom side area of the engine. It w ... 2002 Suzuki XL-7

My 2002 Aurora (4.0) makes an audible click when the key is turned, but nothing else. It could be the Starter relay, but I am not sure where that is located. It could also be the starter itself, but since this problem came on suddenly, with no recent indications, I am not so certain. The lights are bright, and the battery is relatively new. First, where is the starter relay located, and what might be the cause of this problem if not the relay itself?


The starter relay is located in the PDC (power distribution center) located under the hood with a removable lid (black box). Exactly how old is the battery and what is the battery voltage with the key off? Have you verified the battery c ... 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora

I have had the anti thelft relay module changed and a couple other switches changed and still doing same thing. could it be a dead spot in starter or a short in starter burning out switches to ignition??? Please help!!!!
