I have a 2004 olds alero that i purchased for my son. This has happened twice now where he goes to start it and nothing happens. Turns the key and dead silence and it doesn't crank over. The battery has full power and the accessories work. there is no noise of any kind what so ever. tried it about 15 times last Friday. got up Saturday morning tried it again and it started right up. Do you think that this may be ignition related or starter related

Electrical problem My dad has a 1988 trooper 4 cylinder. He recently put a new battery in the truck. When he tried to start it, nothing happened. No instruments, no crank, nothing. He let it set for 2 weeks. He gets back in it, and it immediately cranks, everything works great, idles fine. He turns it off and tries to restart it. Nothing. No instrument, no crank. We have no idea where to start looking for the problem. Help!


Check the ignition lock and tumbler and the electrical part of the switch itself. It could be as easy as the plug needs to be pushed in all the way. ... 1988 Isuzu Trooper 2 Door

I have a 2003 VW Beetle convertible. One day it was working, the next day nothing. Checked the battery and it seemed to be dead. I replaced the battery (it was 6 years old) and was able to start the car, it ran for about a minute, then shut down. All electrical shut down, very weak glow from red security light, would not crank. I put the battery on a charger as it had drained to 80%. I charged it to 100% and the dash light up, flashing, blinking, making all kinds of clicking noises. I tried turn

Starter About a month ago my truck would not start on first try just clicking noise. Turn off and try again and it cranked right up. No just clicking sound every time and it will not crank. I replaced the starter but still just clicking. All lights and gauges seem to be fine so I don't think it's the battery. I have even tried to jump it but still just clicking.


Check the connections on your starter and make sure they are tight and corrosion free.. if there is no corrosion and all the connections are tight the the problem is goiung to be that the bendix inside the starter has a flat spot on it causing it to ... 2004 Dodge Ram 1500

I have a 1987 Toyota Pickup 4x4 (22r Carb Engine) that I just got. Put some money in it and seemed to have worked out most of the kinks. So Im driving around all yesterday w/o any probs. Went to dinner for a hour or so and tried to crank my truck, nothing. Opps...I left the fog lights on, but it finally turned over. Drive about another 5-10 miles to gas station and tried to start it again....nothing, and thats all she wrote. You can hear the relay click, but no whining of the starter or anything

The part on the steering column where i put my key has come out, but i have managed to put it back in and start the truck every time with ease. But today when i tried to start it I turned it and nothing happened, no noise , no lights nothing. I could turn on the lights manually and they work fine so i don't think its a battery problem. If anyone can give me a clue that would be great!

I have everything re-connected, wires,dis,alt,starter,belts,hoses etc. This past weekend (7/1/10) I tried to start it up for the first time since the engine swap and there is nothing, no sound from the starter, no cranking.....nothing. The only response I get from the truck is the battery gauge, which drops when the ignition is turned to the "start" position. I marked eve

My 98 grand prix will start, but when I take off, it dies. It will not restart right away. When I try to crank it, nothing happens. No electrical components work. No dash lights, no power windows or locks, nothing works. No noise is made when I turn the key. I've had the battery tested, it is fine. What could it be. When I put the battery back in the car, it started right up, but I am afraid to drive it for fear of getting stranded. Advice please!!!!!

My truck was driving fine, stopped at a gas station for coffee. when i went to start my truck nothing, i have power on instrument panel but it wont turn at all, like its a dead battery. I tried to have it jumped, nothing again. only thing noticed was a humming noise right behind the front right battery, small cylinder object. thanks for any help.


The object in question is the solenoid starter switch to the starter motor. Since the starter requires a very large current the switch must have a very large pressure and contact to give that extra connection. So if this humming , it can also be that ... Ford F-350

Changed my battery and the cable ends and now my 94 ford ranger will not start. It makes a click noise and nothing else. I tried tapping on the starter and it still will not start.

I have a 2007 Ford Ranger that won't start. There were no problems starting and was fine yesterday. I went to start it up this morning and all I heard were cranking noises and the dash lights would go on. I changed the starting relays, and still the same problem. I pressed the fuel button located on the passenger side, pressed the gas pump for 5 seconds.......and nothing. Any suggestions on what I should do or try from here? Thanks!


I did not read anywhere where you tried to provide additional power to the starting sequence.try jumpstarting it. If the works, go to Autozone, they will test the output of the alternator and the charge on the battery.When jump sta ... Ford Ranger
