Here is how solve this problem:
I hold the key on starting position, i Stop pressing on the pedale clutch and press again. May be two or three times. If it's still not working i lift up and down the battery without deconnecting the wires. If my door is open i could hear some sound inside. So i know the current is now available. Just try and let me know if it's working.

My 2003 Denali won't start I turn the key and just get a fast clicking noise good battery new starter and all power works

Where's the clicking noise coming from ? Under the dash , under the hood in the engine compartment ? Do starter circuit voltage drop test ! When the key is in start position is there constant B+ voltage at the 10 amp crank fuse in the under hood fuse box ? This is an input to the PCM - engine computer to energize the starter relay ! Starter Voltage Drop The battery is good , starter is new ,what about the cables ? watch this video on testing starter circuit !

My pontiac sunfire wont turn on i alredy change the battery and altarnator what can it be

With out knowing more of your symptoms it is hard to say. Turn on your head lights for a second and make sure they are nice and bright, This tells you two things, you have power in you battery and you have a good connection to the car. Next with the headlights turned on try starting the car,have someone watch the headlights to see if they dim when the car tries to crank. If the headlight intensity does not change and you don't hear an audible clicking sound coming from under the hood check to see that the shifter is in park or clutch is fully depressed. If that is ok you are likely looking at a ignition switch problem or the starter itself is bad. Can you tell me if the dash lights up or if you hear the car go click when you try to start it?

Not getting any power to my interior components but all the fuses are good under the hood. The engine cranks but wont start.

Have you checked the battery? How old is tge battery in the car? Do your headlights or ANYTHING work? What happens when you try to start the car - does it make any sounds (like a click click click noise?)or just nothing? Please post follow up. If you have a set of jumper cables you can at least check by hooking up the jumper cable to a running car - if your interior lighys, etc work with the vehicle on jumper cables and/or will start now you need to check tge battery

Wont start

is your battery good? headlights nice and brite?
are there any blown fuses? (fuses usually found under dash below steering wheel)
do you hear a clicking noise? does it seem like your battery is low even though you know it is not?
Is your car clicking when you try to start it?
does it make u think your battery is low, but it isnt?

our starter solenoid will click but nothing else when u try to start your car if your starter is not getting enough power from the battery. This can be caused by a low battery, however it can fake you out and seem like that battery was getting weaker and weaker over time even tho what was actually happening was that the grounding cable (black thick wire) going from the battery to the starter or a bolt on something metal under your hood may actually be degrading over time and need replacement.

Fix: #1
test your ground cable with starter cables! put the negative(black) on the battery then the other black end on anything metal that doesnt move and is not painted. also make sure its not in a spot that could loosen and fall into moving parts if the engines starts. Try starting your engine. If it starts you now know that your ground cable is bad. They are about $5 at autozone and 2 bolts to replace. Just follow it from the battery down to where its bolted on.

Electrical problem

I just had the same issues. No headlights, interior lights, power door locks, radio controls on steering wheel, or dash lights. Pulled every fuse in cab and under hood, not a one was bad. I disconnected the battery terminals for a few minutes. When I reconnected them every thing was working.
