My 2005 Suzuki Aerio won't start. I know that there is power as the lights, radio, ect are working when the ignition is turn on, but the car will not turn over. Side note, the heater blows even though it...


IS tthis a DIY question? or just want guessing? ill pretend DIY/.
no, the car will not crank.
cranking uses 100 amps of current,
the HL , maybe 10amps, 10x less.
turn over means nothing, cranking matters
both the starter and engine spin, "turns over": (1 can and other might not)
starting is a whole other matter, as is sustained start, called running.
crank?> start, started, running, 1,2,3,4.

the heater blower runs, key on, but the heater switch is off.
seem like the controller is tad upset, (lets fix engine first) and fix blower later. (my bet is it wakes up when battery is happy)

my guess is car has and automatic transmission, right>?
and as such to crank it must do so in, park and in Neutral.
does the engine crank in NEUTRAL. (hold foot brake, keyon, shift th N. ) crank now?
1: check fuses yet?
2: check rested battery voltage yet (meter) 12.6vdc.?
if less battery is bad, or only discharged. if yes, charge it?
no charger use jumper cables to crank car. got cables?
call AAA tow they jump start it? no AAA?
barrow a charged battery and try that, ok battery is charged and it will not crank,,, ,good progress now.
3: i next hot wire the starter solenoid. (some cars this is very hard)
check for about 11vdc at starter key line cranking.
0v means its dead.
hot wire that small starter wire, there, cranks now , key off
the starter is good.
now check voltage at the left side of P/N switch, Park/neutral.
12vdc id good, cranking, 11 is too.
if you cant get at least 11v out of switch 20. that means
the P/N switch is bad, (11 or more input)
(battery is good, solved that in test 2)
so bad transmission park neutral switch called the KEY line.

Turn key get nothing jump starter and sylenoid just spins


i cant dope out that symptoms.

does it crank or not. be clear there.

no car starts (but my 6sp) if it dont crank.

on A/T cars cranking is a first thing. so does it.?

Solenoids do not spin, the stroke only , it a linear motion.

the Sol. moves the pinion and the main contactor switch only.



my guess is the Starter spins and the crank don\'t spin,

you hear the starter motor spin up, it sings. like bird.

that means the starter /solenoid are bad. (crude)

if the battery is good and or jumper starting off a running car.



It can just be a dirty starter pinion, clean it , repeat.

fixed many for this. i have.



battery cable lugs clean, and good. no green rust.

bad cable usually just make a loud THUNK sound. no spin.

Won't start. won't even crank when key turned.


no cranks, (A/T or M/T?)(
battery lugs cleaned?
Key turned on , CEL glows in dash, Check engine light>? yes, good.
does car crank jumper cable started.??????
if yes, your battery is bad or discharged, (good batteries can just be discharged, discharged dont make them bad, only dead or weak)
if ,jumper fails, to crank it fast.
then hot wire the solenoid (on side of starter caseing)
key in pocket, '
jump the big lug to the very tiny lug on the solenoid
cranks , not? bad starter
yes cranks but dont run, good, key is in pocket for safety, this is normal
but the KEY line is dead.
bad PRNDL switch

are all dash idiot lamps glowing key on , showing 12vdc power is good?
or are they dim>?
is car a A'T or M/T auto or stick?
if auto, wiggle the gear shifter, cranking,
if Stick wiggle the clutch, cranking.
got a volt meter?. is battery at 12.6v ?

if battery is good, hot wire the solenoid
crank now? yes, then key line is dead.
if not, the starter,battery or cables are bad.

try jump starting it. if that works the battery was

post is good and clear, no engine size stated.>>>
can you jump start it?//
this simple check proves battery is good /bad or just discharged.
yes, jumps and runs. (ever clean the battery lugs ever?
if it jumps the battery is bad/or disharged, so charge it.
no, wont jump cold
bad starter. or funky key line.

1: i hot wire these starters,
cranks ok, good starter.
no crank bad key line
if key line is dead, well wiggle the key and wiggle the gear shifter.
is car a A/T or M/T.
if M/T wiggle the clutch.
now you have your answer, an why. how is a differnt horse.

Engine won't start turn


no crank
1: battery dead, not charged. does it jump crank?
2: bad battery (corroded clean em) cables lugs. (4 ends)
3: bad starter /solenoid, assembly
4: engine seized, (turn it by hand you cant?)
5: bad key line, (from key switch to PRNDL to stater , no connections)

jump start it, if passed test, battery bad/discharged , and if fail?
you then (battery is good)
hot wire the starter solenoid, keys in pockets
fail? yes, bad starter, seized engine. turn by hand , now you know.
if passes hot wire test, bad key line. (tiny wire)

easy huh?

Nissan maxima 3.5 2007wont start the key lights stay on


The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared

I tried to start my 94Sunbird-I heard clicking for a few seconds & then nothing. Battery is good & it couldn't be jump started. How can I find out if it's the starter or something else? help?


one easy way is to have someone hold key in crank ing position,then another person needs to hit or tap the starer housing itself.if engine begins to crank intermittently or ur cliking noise turns into small jolts of the starter trying to crank then u can bet its the strtr motor. u do need a charged batt for this test. also chek ur battery grounds they can dramatically affect starter operation if we have a voltage drop anywhere in starter circuit .chek batt cables r tight on batt posts, loose batt cables on battery will also give u clicking noise w no starter operation

My car wont crank, replaced solinoid and starter tested good, and battery is good, but when i turn key will not crank, just clicks.


Heres a good test to test the solenoid and the starter, make sure the car is in park and turn the key on, using a screw driver jump the solenoid and see if it spins the engine or clicks, if you look at the solenoid you will see a small wire and the two connections for battery cables,locate the connection that the battery goes to ,the other big connection will be the cable to starter, take the battery connection and jump it to the small wire connection, if it clicks then you must have a bad starter or bad connection at the starter, also another test is to turn the headlights on and try to start the car while someone watches the lights, if the lights go out then you have a bad connection at battery or the ground to engine. start with these tests and let me know what happens, good luck.

Turned key on,lights on ignition go like its aflat battery but not,lights go on ok,told it could be starter motor,took starter motor out an use battery to test it while it was starter out of...


Easier to test in the car. Put starter back in the car. First, please try to jump start the car. If it will jump and start, starter is OK. If it will not jump start, go to the starter with a screwdriver. Use the screwdriver to short the big red-wire terminal to the small terminal on the solenoid. Be very careful not to short the big red-wire terminal to anything else, or you will get a big spark. If the battery, starter, and solenoid are good, the car will crank. If it does not crank, try again while jumping the battery to another car. If it cranks, the battery is low or the terminals need to be cleaned and tightened. If you have more questions, please reply.
