Check and clean the battery terminals, just went through this exact same problem myself this week! Google "clean battery terminals" if you have never done this before, pretty easy.

Hi firstly when you try to start the car do the lights dim then, when you release the key they go bright again,
If they do your starter is either stuck or the solenoid on the top of it has packed up.
Firstly look around the bottom area of the engine where it joins to the gearbox.
The starter should look like a long tubed shaped unit with at least a few heavy wires coming from it (the same as attached to the battery.
Once you have found it tap it with something non metal so as not to short it out but free it.
Try the starter again to see has that made it work.
Either way if it goes or does not go you will need to get the starter repairer by a car starter repair chap or get a good second hand one from a breakers yard off the same model as yours.
Make sure before the starter is removed that the battery is disconnected so as to avoid the battery being shorted when the wires are removed from the starter.

The Batt does not have a full charge or it is the wrong cranking AMP's for the car... find out if it is the right Batt and also that it is put on a "slow charge" over night or at least 6 hr's

Check and clean the ground on your battery cable. Also charge battery even if is new. Starters use all the amperage a fully charged battery produces to turn that starter. Make surecables are clean and tight :)

SOURCE: wont start

The clicking noise is most likely the starter silinoid engaging but not enough electricity to turn the engine. Unfortunately, when one of those 3 goes bad it causes the other 2 to have excessive wear on them and soon they go bad. Battery goes bad (wont hold a charge) the alternator is constantly running trying to charge the battery and from repeated starting attempts, the starter dies soon after. I one of the 3 goes out and the other 2 are not checked to make sure no damage has happened to them, they soon fail. Test all 3 to find out which one is bad now

Intermittently there is a problem starting the car. The key turns on all the electrics but when turned further it does not engage the starter.


Check your ignition switch electrical side
Check the relay
Or the starter motor itself must be playing up

Check starter motor, give it a smack with a hammer, might turn over after that, this is a sign the stater motor brushes are most likely worn out. Or and check ignition switch below the ignition barrel.

Well, if your starter starts to turn when you hook the battery cable up, then you have hooked the cable to the wrong post on the starter. You have two large posts and one small post on the starter solenoid, the battery cable goes on the large post that has nothing else hooked to it. The other large post should have a large braided cable going into the starter motor housing. If the starter still will not turn the engine over when it is wired correctly then you will need to look closer at the flywheel ring gear.

humming could be the motor turning round but not engaging with the flywheel. you can check this by hitting the starter with a spanner a few times. if it starts up after you have a sticking solenoid. had to do this a few times my self to get engine started. replace starter as soon as possible if it works. usually happens if you not driven car for awhile.. or you do a lot of starting and small trips.

I have a tuff stuff mini starter on a street rod with a 350 chev motor half the time the starter doesnt turn the motor over it engages but dosent make contact with the fly wheel, then two tries later it...


the starter needs to be able to drive the gear on the bendix out to the flywheel or as you said, it won't work. Generally the solenoid does that by way of a lever. I'd remove the starter and check to see what's causing it to bind up. I've built lots of high horsepower engines and unless there's a huge clearance problem I use a normal factory starter (old style) on just about everything. On very high compression engines I make an ignition cut out so you can get the engine spinning without spark and then turn on the ignition.
If you can see the gear not engaging then it's not being driven out far enough. If you can't see it, then suspect the bendix itself as well.. It's an overrunning clutch and if that's bad it will engage but fail to turn the flywheel.

I replaced the starter on a 1994 toyota camry. Everything appears to be reconnected correctly, but all I can year when I turn the key is the sound of the starter turning. I assume it isn't engaging...


when the ignition switch is turned to the starting postion the motor should turn over if it dont then the starter is either not installed properly or the starter drive is sticking or bad if the starter is not engaging with the flywheel there could be a good chance that the teeth on the flywheel are broke off. i would pull the starter back off and use a mirror to check the teeth on the flywheel.
