Mom was driving stopped went into store came out & did not start, checked battery, starter store said it was OK. It does not even take a jump. Could it be the fuel pump relay?

    When you try to start the car it does nothing, all the lights work, you only hear a click coming from the relay fuse under the hood.

    Grandson had the same problem. Shut the motor off, when tryed to restart, there is a click at the stater, but will not turn over. It is an automatic Trany. Battery is new and I checked it, OK>

    I have the same problem with my '92 Geo. It starts, idles fine, place in gear and it stalls after 10-20 feet, then won't restart unless you flood the engine with fuel.

Does the engine crank? Do the instrument panel lights dim when you attempt to start it?

If the answer to both of those is no, then you may have the same problem I have had on occasion - the "clutch safety switch" may be stuck and locks out the starter.

If it cranks ok and it has spark, there is a possibility that the fuel injector is "stuck". It happened to me once with my '92. The problem was solved by accident when I used a multimeter to check the voltage across the injector. I watched the voltage drain down to 0 and then I was able to start it and it worked just fine.

Usually when someone does what your mam did they normally catch the light switch lights come on battery runs down but if you are sure the batterys up it is very unlikley that it would be anything to do with fuel or electrics [not immposible] but i would suspect that when your mams tried to start the car its jumped the timming belt teeth when she turned the key it gives you the impression when it is then being turned over of a flat battery with a slight difference in that when the engines turning over it can appear to turn slowly then quickly then slowly ect or just turn over quickly hope it helps yates210456

Was driving fine ..parked the car went in the store came out and all i get is a clicking when i turn the key


check the battery and connection if they are good then replace the starter it is bad, you can try having someone tap on the starter while cranking it over it may start but the starter is still bad, hope this helps.

Turn the key and not even a click,checked the starter,the battery and cables and relay,all ok has 460 and is a 4sp manual,has power to the soliniod and nothing coming out to starter cable,replaced it and...


check your coil it could be bad. does it jump start? have the alternator tested. If it jump starts disconnect battery and if truck dies then alternator is bad. Best way to test is auto parts store hwever.
