My 2003 4runner wont start. When I turn the key to the "On" position a clicking noise emanates from the fuse box. The raido and in cabin accessories all seem to work but when I turn the head lights on it seems as if everything goes dead briefly and the resumes what it was doing.

Wont start! My 2001 F-150 just decided not to start, before I got a jump, when I turned the key I heard click, click, click so on and so on. After I got the jump, it started first try but none of my gauges were working, ie... fuel, water temp, oil pressure, tack. also no lights on the inside were working. After I started driving home, after only a few feet ( 30 or so) it started sputtering, finally stalling out. Now when I turn the key I get nothing, doors won't lock or unlock, windows wont go

Car stopped while being driven. wont start now. just make a clicking sound when you try to start. looked underneath, there is a whole about 1 1/2 inches in diameter which appears to be broken from a cover of some kind made of cast iron. In this whole you can feel a gear or a piece of gear or something. It is to the right of where the starter engages.

The battery is new. 93 4runner. Turn Key, everything works, turn the key to start, hear the click and then nothing. No clock, no lights, on horn, nothing, as if the battery were disconnected.

Come back an hour later, turn the key, everything works, turn the key to start, hear the click and then nothing ... about 5 times now.

Car wont start (wont turnover). The shift interlock solenoid is broken because I can now move my shifter to any gear even without having my keys in the ignition. Would this cause the car to not start? No click or anything when turning the key. BPP switch was recently replaced and I had the starter checked a month ago and it's good. Battery good, fuses good, lights turn on, cd player works. Lights dim slightly when trying to start. tried to start in neutral too and got nothing.


Yes it could very well keep it from starting get that fixed first ... Ford Escort

My car wont start!!!...help please!!! i turn the key over to start it and the fuel pump/auto shutoff relay/fuel pump relay all start to click rapidly, and the starter wont engage. after about 30 mins of screwing with it....it finally turns over and the fuel pump seems to go off after the system is pressurized. then it starts but you have to rev up the gas in order for it to stay running. after about ten minutes of that.....i can let off the gas pedal and it usually stays running. seems to run ok


I would replace the relays first, then check fuel pressure. Also change the fuel filter. You can use a multi-tester on the ohm setting where the relay is to see if the voltage remains the same ... 1998 Dodge Intrepid

Try smacking the starter with a hammer. If this works, your starter has a dead spot on the commutator and needs to be replaced. If this doesn't work, you may need a solenoid. Do a little troubleshooting by jumping the solenoid. \015\012P ... 1993 Dodge Dynasty
