Get an assistant. Have someone turn the key in an attempt to start the car. While they do this, position yourself underneath the car with a hammer. Whilst starting the car, hit the starter (not hard enough to dent it) with the hammer. If it starts, the starter was 'frozen' and should be replaced. If nothing happens, try taking the starter off and bringing it to a local parts store (autozone, pepboys, etc) and having it tested.

    Correction: Attempting to start the vehicle before you are ready to hit the starter is not recommended. Wait until you are in position. Sorry for any confusion. Also, if the starter does not work after hitting it, and it makes absolutely no noise when you try to start the vehicle (not even a 'click'), then the problem may lie in the 'starter solenoid' , so do make sure to have the starter tested.

Have 2005 pt cruiser full battery charge wont start


The starter motor has two voltage circuits. One comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position and starter relay is energized. The starter motor grounds through the engine block. If voltage and ground for the starter motor are good, then I would have to check starter motor. You can use a test light to check voltage. Any testing at starter motor make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.

Battery is good but when I turn it on it just clicks won't start,maybe after 20 times it starts


Without hearing the sound it makes - it's kind of hard to diagnose.

The engine starting process consists of turning the key to start, the starter motor's rotor moving forward to engage the engine's flywheel, and then the starter motor 's "rotor" spinning until you move the key from "start" to "run". You can hear the starter motor spinning - but one usually can't hear the rotor moving forward to engage the flywheel. As a result, you hear the odd spinning sound - which is the starter rotor spinning. The engine never actually turns over because the rotor never engages the fly wheel. If this is the case, then it is very likely that your starter needs to be checked and / or replaced.

Good luck!

What's your problem?my car can,t raise (fire very well and can not change or select it gear automatically,


The first step is to narrow down the cause of the no-start.

The first step is to narrow down the cause of the no-start.

Let's go over the process of starting the car, so you have a better understanding of what is going on when you turn the key:

Here is what happens on a properly running car:

  • You sit behind the wheel and insert the ignition key into the switch.

  • You then turn the key to the spring loaded start position. When you do that, the ignition switch engages the starter by connecting the battery to the electric starter motor which, in turn cranks the engine over. This can be easily heard and is referred to as cranking the engine over.

  • The next thing you will hear is the engine running, which is your signal to release the key.

  • At that point, the engine is running and you are ready to place the transmission selector in Drive and be on your way.

MOTOR OPERTAES WITHOUT KEY


your starter,solenoid or ignition is no good. but my first choice,i think your solenoid is shorted because when you hook up the battery,it cranks but does not start.that means your ignition switch is still working.

97 Malibu. V6-3100. Starter turns engine, but car


I think you may have answered your own question. I would check to see if the fuel pump is turning on when you turn the key on to the run position. You should hear a buzz sound coming from the gas tank. I would start there.
