You say nothing happens sort of need more specifics, does it attenpt to rotate the engine? does the starter click? are all of the wires in the correct spots on the starter?
Is there powerat the starter?
have you checked your fuses?
can you rotete the engine by hand?

Why won't my highlander start.Nothing happens when key turned to start. Starter not turning.


If you went straight to starter with jumper cables and you got nothing then , then pull and have starter bench tested. Also make sure you haven't trigger some kind of security on your system that would lock you out from starting. you should see a security light flashing if you did.

My 2001 dodge grand caravan sport won't start


DOES THE VEHICLE MAKE ANY NOISE AT ALL WHEN THE KEY IS TURNED?, IF YOU GET A "CLICK" BUT NOTHING ELSE THEN THE STARTER IS JAMMED, GET A HAMMER & GIVE THE STARTER A FEW SOLID FIRM BUT NOT OVER ZEALOUS WHACKS, MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED & TURN THE KEY, IF ITS ANYTHING LIKE ALL THE CARS I'VE HAD OVER THE YEARS IT WILL MAGICALLY SPRING TO LIFE - IF IN DOUBT - GIVE IT A CLOUT!!

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

Turn key and nothing happens, replaced the starter, now it is only clicking from the new starter. I have a new battery instaled that will show 12 volts on my dash when connected to another battery jumping...


if you replaced the starter with a remand unit it could still be a bad starter(personal experience),but if your battery show 12v only when being jumped your battery is having issues,take the battery and have it checked if it was replaced before the starter it could have problems due to the starter drawing to much at once and not recovering,and also have the alternator checked out this will kill a brand new battery very quickly even with nothing on.

Turn key wont start,new battery,good fuses,bench test starter ok?


Have you tried shifting into neutral to start? If yes then perhaps the key switch is bad. One other thing to check would be the starter relay.
