Having problems with your 2006 Chevrolet Equinox ?
Began failing to start, would not turn over. Battery is good and connections clean. It would finally turn and start if kept trying. But, now, will not turn at all, and have tried resetting gearshift lever, tried wiggling key in switch, nothing. Lights on dash working. What now?
Assuming you have a solid ground connection from the battery to the engine, try shorting the hot red terminal on the solenoid to the smaller terminal (not the ground terminal!)--the motor should crank. If not, you know the starter/solenoid is bad. If it cranks better than from the ignition switch, back up and check for bad starter relay, etc. Let us know what you find out, and we can continue troubleshooting.
