Check terminals are all tight.Could be faulty starter motor, is it manual if so try bump starting it you need to check there is feed going down to starter solenoid when turning key to crank, if is could be worth giving it a tap with small hammer as may be sticking.

2001 chevy impala won't start. battery is showing 12 volts. turn key 'on' and nothing happens, no dash lights, no clicking, nothing. turn key 'off' and a rapid clicking sound starts (similar to turn signal) this may continue for 3-4 minutes, even if key is removed. when it stops, the door chime will sound until you insert key and turn 'on'. the only thing on dash that displays is the clock, but it keeps resetting itself to 12:00. What's up????

My 97 Honda Civic runs good and up until now, no problems, but when I turn on the key to start it, nothing happens. Have new battery, fully charged, lights on dash do not go off when I turn key to start. It is a 5 speed, so I have clutch down when starting. Is there a fuse or something that may have blown? Was running great when I last drove it, always started right away, until now (there is nothing as far as engine turning over).


Bypass the clutch switch. If the car starts then replace the switch.If this will not work, then you need to troubleshoot the starter, from the fuse up to solenoid. Might be anything from a bad fuse, bad relay, bad solenoid, corroded starter cop ... 1997 Honda Civic

My 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't start. When you turn the key nothing happens, no clicking, nothing, but all of the lights, radio, power seats, windows etc. work fine. The Transmission over temp message flashes quickly when you turn the key to off, but the temp on the guage never comes close to being high. The battery is fine and I've checked all of the connections. This has happened three times now and I just leave it for a few hours and it starts right up. Anyone know what this could be?
