Every now and again the car will not start as if it is not getting any power. i will turn the key and there would just be a one click. i've had the battery, starter, and alternator tested and they are all good. i have scrubbed the battery terminals and changed the fuses on the positive terminal, but still every so often i will go to crank it and i turn the key and i just get a click. sometimes if i hold the key in the crank position it would fire up.
Sounds like a bad connection at the starter itself. have you cleaned the terminals at the starter? what year make and model car is it? ... 1987 Toyota Camry

Won't start when starting, it would just click while turning key. Called tow service to get it jumped. when they tried to jump it, just the click. tow driver recommended new batteries. we went and bought 2 batteries, put them in and nothing, not even a click. checked both the old batteries and they both had good charge. could it be the starter, alternator, or the something else? thank you for your time, denny

I have a 2004 Intrepid which I have had no problems whatsoever for 5 years that I have owned it until today. I tried to start the car and got like a cellinoid or alternator clicking when I turned the engine over. While I tried to start the engine I noticed the 2 dome lights were flickering off and on.

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.

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. IT DOES DONT MAKE DRAGGING SOUND LIKE WHEN THE BATTERY IS DYING NOR DOES IT MAKE CLICKING SOUND LIKE WHEN THE STARTER IS FAILING. IT MAKES NO SOUND AND THE JUST FIRES. CAR HAS OVER 200,000MILES.

Starting problem I have a 2000 taurus that is not starting. I turn the key over and hear one click. I tried my spare key and got the same result. I thought it might be the battery or alternator (just had both replaced 6 months ago) and got a jump start from a buddy, nothing happened, got the same click sound when trying to turn the key. Not sure what to do. Is it the starter?
It could be the starter solinoid or the starter, If you can remove starter you can take it to any advance auto parts store and they can check your starter for free, ... 2000 Ford Taurus
Just got my ignition replaced with a used ignition and since then now and then I turn my key and everything in the car and outside turns on. Gas pump kicks in and everything then I go to start my engine and the key turns and nothing happens. No click, no nothing, I have gotten it in the past to turn over from rapidly turning the key to start the car and then randomly it would start up. But now it has finally stopped working. Anyone have any ideas?
Ignition switch went out, but that doesn't explain lights coming on. I would check for burnt wires under the dash. if none are visible you will have to cut into the harness. just be carefull doing so. you don't want to cut any computer wires ... 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue
Intermitent start Battery is fine. Turn the key and I get a click. Turn the key several times until it finally kicks over. Bad relay or ignition switch? I have question, no click from starter, engine will not turn at all. Leave it over night or for while and it starts. drive couple day, and stops working again. Took starter in for test and it works. Battery cables fine and also have put new battery in. Is this a fuse or switch sticking open that is between ignition and starter or is it starter.
