Toyota Camry wont start 1994 doesnt click over

This could be -

- dying battery. The most common cause. You might hear a click from the starter solenoid, or not, but no cranking.

- worn starter solenoid contacts. Here the battery is good, but no cranking.

- bad ground from the battery to the engine. Clean the terminals at both ends of this cable.

- defective starter or solenoid. Replace rather than repair, it is just as cheap.

My car was making a clicking sound, so i replaced the starter, and after the new one was in, its still making a clicking sound and still wont start.

Sounds like you either have a loose connection or a bad starter solenoid, or a bad battery. Check the connections to your battery and starter and make sure they are tight. Have your battery load tested it may be bad.

If your starter came with a solenoid mounted on the satrter than it should be new too and that should not be the problem. If you have a fendor mounted solenoid then I would take a screwdriver and cross the positive and negative terminals. This will feed the starter directly and bypass the solenoid. If the starter turns over then you need a new solenoid. I am guessing that your battery terminals are loose and I would start there.

My 95 surburban wont crank changed the stater got a new batt and new batt post still wont crank

Obtain a 12 volt test light, ground the clip on the negative battery post, and check for light at the large terminal on the starter solenoid. If lit, have someone try the key--if the light goes out, place the light on the battery positive post and try the starter again. If it goes out again, either the battery needs to be charged, or it is defective. If the light stays lit in the first test, then place the light on the starter motor terminal and retry the key (do you hear a fairly loud click?). If nothing but the click, replace the solenoid itself. If no click at all, test the small terminal on the solenoid and try the key. If you get light, replace the solenoid. If no light, check for blown fuses. If ok, then suspect a bad ignition switch. Hope some of this helps!

2002 ford explorer wont start even after new battery...

Before you go changing out the starter check for a burnt out fusible link going to the starter it will look like a wire but acts as a fuse and they burn in two just like a fuse. The symptoms you just describe are those of a burnt fusible link.

Car wont start. is not the battery.

The clicking you hear is the starter solenoid trying to fire the starter. Generally an indication of loss of full power to the starter itself.
It can in fact be a bad wire to the starter, weak battery, dirty battery connections, etc. When in doubt try the horn. If it goes full blast look beyond the battery. Start at your battery terminals and clean them, checking the wires there as well for creeping corrosion. Then work your way to the starter connections checking for corrosion and dirt.
If all else checks out the issue is likely in the starter solenoid, internal connections. These wear with age and are replaceable on most Japanese vehicles.

Sounds like the starter solenoid is working, but the starter motor isn't. If you have a voltmeter or test light, measure for light/12 volts at the motor terminal while someone tries the key. If the solenoid is what is 'clicking', but nothing at the motor terminal, change the solenoid. If you get light/12 volts, then the motor itself is in trouble.

Engine wont start

Your starter draws more amperage than nearly anything else in the car...Don't assume that the battery is charged unless you test it with a voltmeter. It must have at least 12v and not drop below 9.5 volts under a 200amp load. If battery tests good, check the connections to make sure that the terminals and cable contacts are clean and secure. If good, make sure that engine and starter ends of cables are also good. If clicking is coming from the starter, then it's likely that the solenoid is bad...Best to change as starter and solenoid together because brushes inside starter are usually found to be worn out just about when solenoid fails. Don't change the starter 'till other testing has been done. Some systems use another fender or firewall mounted relay. If that is making the click, change that first.

Have battery but engine wont turn over

1.Do the headlights come on? Are they as bright as they should be? No? Check the battery cables, and connections. A corroded battery cable terminal end, and battery terminal will cause this. (Even side post batteries have a terminal. It's just a flat area with a threaded hole) Side post batteries are notorious for acid leaking out of the side post area, and corroding the connections. (I change everyone of my vehicles to use a Top Post battery)

2.Battery terminals and battery terminal ends clean? Battery cables good? Then it's the starter solenoid, or the starter itself.

Inside the starter solenoid, (Mounted to the starter. It's that cylindrical looking object on top of the starter), are contacts. These can burn, and wear out over time.

Inside the starter are brushes. The starter is just an electrical motor. The brushes wear down over time, and do not make contact anymore.

If somehow this is the original starter, and starter solenoid, consider yourself LUCKY! It has seen it's use, and is well past time to be changed.

Dead Battery, bad altinator or bad starter. Have battery tested first. If bad replace.Then test alt, Before you change starter. Battery terminals could be corroded or loose also.
