What do you mean "bad starting"

starter dosnt engage?(starter engauges but dosnt catch flexplate or flywheel, maybe dosnt engauge at all)
barely turns over? (like theres no battery causing hard crank)

you can test your battery by starting the car with the headlights on, if the headlights go dim the battery is bad. your battery could be out of date or the alternator could be bad and not charging the battery.

My ford 2001 v10 f250 does not crank start or click what wrong change starter and solenoids


Might be bad starter relay, or bad ignition switch. Check for voltage to starter when key in start position, or turn on headlamps and try to start. If lamps dim, bad battery connections, bad ground, bad replaced starer. If lamps do not dim, starter position on switch may be bad. You could try using jumper from battery to start post on solenoid to see if it cranks. If it does, you have either a bad ignition switch, start relay, or wiring problem.

I have a Pontiac Grand am se 2.3 liter that won't start everything powers on but hen I turn the key to start it nothing happens not even a clicking to stay an get it t I start??


Turn on headlamps and try to start. Do lights dim? Yes= bad battery connections, low charge on battery, bad solenoid, bad starter. Not dimming? bad solenoid, bad starter switch, bad neutral safety switch, bad starter relay, bad ignition switch. Use voltmeter to see if ignition switch works, and so on.

Car won t start not battery


rule 1> check all fuses.
rule 2> clean battery lugs.

this is NO CRANK, no car starts , if it can't crank over, (mine i can push start (m/t trannys rule)
step 1 is jumper starting, with jumper cables.
if it starts, the battery is bad, or simple discharged.
if it dont jumper start. then the starting system is bad.
no transmission stated?
the A/T you wiggle the shiftlever, to start.
or start in NEUTRAL, this uses fresh start contacts.

if you get this far and it will NOT crank over
then hot wire the starter.
if that works,then the starter is good and the key line is bad
if the starter is still dead hot wired, the starter is bad (battery good )

My 2005 suzuki aeiro wont start.battery is good . wont turn over


what transmission,?
this can be 3 things, if it wont jump and batter is good.
bad connections at battery or starter.
1: bad starter.
2: bad (A/T shift switch) or bad M/T clutch switch.
3 bad ignition switch.
4: bad wire or connections end to and start system.

hot wire the starter solenoid, if car starts (cranks) then its 2 o 3.

Bad battery, bad cables, bad starter, bad starter switch, bad electrical connections. One thing for sure, you need a better mechanic. Don't go back to that guy.

My truck runs for about 40 min then it starts to act up like its running out f gas but it has a half or a full tank of gas what could it be


Here is a small list of possibilities. Fuel pump starting to go bad causing a low fuel output. Coil has a winding starting to go bad. Throttle position sensor starting to fail after other temperature controlled sensors light up. Oxygen sensor(s) bad, however this is usually symptomatic in a n engine that runs bad all the time. EGR valve bad, getting bad signal, or stuck open by a loose piece of carbon. Good Luck.

I have an automatic starter on a 1995 buick riviera and the car wouldn't start with the key but would start with the automatic starter now it cuts off as soon as it starts


sounds like a bad wire connection see they hook that up through the same ign wires the key uses to start it i would pull the auto start module and check for bad conn and on the key not starting it could be a couple of things 1 as explained before bad conn 2 a bad ign switch at the keyswitch
