Won't start how ? no crank - no start , which means when you turn the key to the start position nothing happens , starter doesn't engage. Or the starter turns the engine an it doesn't start an run. a crank - no start ?
have somebody hit the starter with a hammer while somebody turns the key on the start position as he holds the key keep hitting the starter not at the solenoid at the round part if it tries to start then you have a defective starter now if you have a alarm system you are going to have tutoo isolate the starter to do a different test.
you have a shorted battery (have it tested) or there is a loose connection. A starter motor pulls a large amount of current when it engages, a loose conection or shorted battery will all the voltage away from the dash,lights etc.
That symptom usually means the solenoid on the starter is bad and no longer is completing the circuit to engage the starter. A new starter will likely solve that issue.
A series of rapid clicks would indicate a week battery.
You can try repeatedly turning the key to the start position rapidly, sometimes the starter wil start working.
You can also try tapping the starter while somebody holds the key in the start position, if the starter engages place it.
Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.
there is a solinoid that enguages the starter it is stuck tap the round cylinder that is atached to the top of the starter it should disenguage the solinoid if not try to hit it harder. dont beat it up though. it also may need a new starter.
