    Engine won't turn over. Battery power drains to nothing. New battery, new egnition switch, check all fuses, Surely others have experienced this problem. Contact if you hhave any idea what this could be.

Check amd make sure that the vehicle is in park or neutral and then attempt to start if it does not then the best way to check is to directly test the starter and its power relay which is in the fuse block and it is a 5 pin relay brown in color

The dealer replace the time chaim and i put new stater motor and new battery i have problem to start,after 3 or 4 time when i tund the key start

Probably bad ignition switch where the key is. OR the line connecting to the starter solenoid terminal (small). Or could be a bad relay between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid terminal. Could be a bad starter solenoid, Yes, several instances of bad starter solenoids.

New stater, stater still makes clicking sound

First you should check to make sure the engine is not locked up by turning it over manually. If you can turn the engine manually, then check your battery terminal ends to make sure you have good, clean and tight connections. Typically, a faulty electrical connection is the main culprit that will cause your situation. If you still suspect a faulty connection, try having someone turn the ignition key while you wiggle the battery cables to see if it will try to start. This should help you narrow down the problem area.

My stater turns on without turnning the ignition switch

you should replace the ignition switch. I had that problem with one of my vehicles. replaced the switch and lock and it worked just fine after that. Have them check the starter though because having it keep running like that can do damage to the starter itself

Truck will not crank. Previous owner installed crappy kill switch that initially started the problem.I by pass it and truck was running fine. Till the a ground cable came loose on the battery. There's...

It would be the ignition or those ignition wires because of the kill switch being poorly installed, id try tracing wires first and replace anything thats been cut/spliced into. if not change the ignition

New battery starter was tested still not starting/ they say it might be the igitions switch or still could be starter/cylioniod on top of starter but have to buy them together...?

Yes,they do have to be purchased together,this is a low geared reduction starter,with magnets,instead of brushes,Check for voltage to the starter wire on the solenoid when the ignition is in the start position,if there are 12 volts ,then replace the starter,if not,the neutral safety switch,or the ignition switch are bad.Try this,hold the key to start the car,and lightly tap on the starter,if it starts,the stater is bad.

Pt wont start or turn over

try to get a jump from a friend and see what happens, does the same, faulty starter, may need replacing, try to use small hammer and tap lightly on the starter couple time and have a friend start the car while you tap lightly on it. check ignition switch where you stick the key in. stick the key in the ignition and turn the key back and forth jiggle and wiggle it and see if your igniting will make contact. do it several time to test and see if its the ignition problems, this part is not cheap to replace.
