Is there any sound, like a click, the starter spinning?
This will indicate the battery is bad or a loose connection on the battery.

Does the engine turn over, or is it just silent?
If the engine turns over, the problem could be no spark or bad "Main Relay"
Hope this helps.

Truck won't start


If the engine will not crank, it could be the starter, the neutral safety switch, or a bad connection.
A mechanic would check the starter circuit back to the key switch.

Why won't my 2008 Chrysler Aspen start?


You have 2 issue going on. Its not seeing a valid key,and it is starting with the remote.Your remote entry key did it happen to get wet? Or moisture get in? Lock the vehicle up using the key. enter the vehicle using the key fob.After the vehicle unlocks you have 60 seconds to enter the vehicle insert the key in the ignition start it up.Your remote start up is out of step.

My 2003 chevy tahoe won't start in the morning


Many possible causes....Too little info to make an intelligent suggestion. Try charging the problem vehicle's battery with jumper cables for 2 minutes with the supply vehicle running at fast idle (or about 1500-2000 RPM, if it is tachometer equipped) before you try to crank the problem vehicle on a cold morning. If it starts right up, you likely have a weak battery that needs replacing.

Hey I have a 91 cb lancer I turn the key to on then to start and all I hear is a click why won't it start what could be the problem


When you turn the key to the "on" position, see if the panel lights come on and try honking the horn too, if everything works it means the battery is fine.

Now, turn the key to start the engine. Does the engine just give out a click? If so, the battery terminals may be loose. Tighten the terminals leading to the battery posts with the correct tools and try turning the key once again.

My car has been running fine. Starts each morning once to drive kids to school. An hour later for me to drive to work. But for the last two mornings won't start back up after working 4 hours. I noticed...


Sounds like the alternator is going out the slow way.
Youre kinda lucky because almoat all alternators go out without warning.
Most Autozone shops or places like it will run a test for free.
Good luck,Gary

My 2004 pontiac grand prix gt wont start when i went to turn it on this morning to go to work nothing happened it just made a clicking noice. The guy at pep boys said that the battery was good. when i try...


if you turn headlights on and turn key to start do you hear clicking? if so starter is possibly bad,lets trouble shoot your problem.suggest you check the fuses under hood in black box,make sure those are good. when you turn the key, you should hear at least a click or else the starter is not drawing current.try turning the headlights on and at same time turn the key and try to start, if lights go dim the starter is drawing current, does it click? if so then bad starter. if no noise at all,,still could be a bad starter.suggest that you remove the starter and have it checked out.also make sure the car is in park for sure before you do any of this. hope this helps!!

Subaru 2002 outback occasionally will not start(when car is cold-mornings only) I usually get a single click, thats it. I will then turn the key on and off a max of ten times and it will engauge and start?...


have battery check out it should be 12.5 volts if not its too weak need to replace. make your alternator is charging battery. it should be 13.5 to 14.5volts with engine running.if not alternator faulty. but make sure battery cables is tight and clean free from corrossion.turn off radio before disconnecting battery cables to keep from losing radio code.
