    It sounds like:
    1. you have a bad battery. You can have someone check it out or connect to a new one with jumper cable. It might be beyond its life expectancy or the alternator doesn't charge it properly.

    2. The starter you have is still faulty. I had similar problem on my Camry many years ago that went away after I changed the starter assembly. I am not sure if yours is brand new or rebuilt, or if you replaced just the starter motor without the adjacent solenoid. Toyota has a poor reputation for its starters and I will bet you that is what your problem is.

"Warning Lights" on the dashboard of "1995 Nissan Maxima"

The warning lights coming on with the key in the on position is normal. If the key is turned to the start position and the engine will not crank over, suspect an internal starter motor problem or lack of power to the starter solenoid. You can try tapping on the starter motor with a blunt object while someone holds the key in the crank position to see if it starts when this problem occurs. If it starts using this procedure, the starter motor will be defective

I need to reset a passlock system in my 1998 Chevy S10 2.2L standard that I just bought from someone who gave up on trying to fix it. My security light is flashing in a specific 3sec., 1/2sec., 5sec.

  • 1 Insert your key in the starter, start you caricon1.png as you usually would and let it stall. Keep the key in the "On" position. In other words, don't turn the key back to the "Off" position. You will know the key is in the "On" position because you can use the A/C, radio and see all the lights on the dashboard when it is in the "On" position.
  • 2 Wait until the "Theft Sys" light on your dashboard stays on without blinking. This will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
  • 3 Start the car immediately once the "Theft Sys" light stays on steadily. Remember to not turn the key off. Your car will now reset the passlock system and start as usual.

    91 toyota pick up won't' start clicking sound

    your starter sounds like its sticking. the carbon brushes in older models wear down and need to be replaced. or, starter needs replacing/reconditioning. first try to tap lightly on the starter with a hammer then try to turn the key(bring hammer with you!!)
    failing that you may need to get it checked. you could try a hill start to see if it is just the starter.

    I can't get my car to start, when i turn the key the car don't make any sounds, i check the battery, change the starter

    The next thing i would check is the ignition switch itself. Turn the key to the on position, If the red warning lights on your dash don't light up (and your battery connections are clean), the ignition switch is bad. If they do light up, turn the key to the start position. The dash warning lights should turn off at this key position (most cars). If you're not sure, turn on the headlights. When you try to start the car, the lights should either dim (a lot) or turn off completely. If they do, your ignition switch should be ok. If not, the switch will need replacement.

    Starter will not engage anti theft light is on it is a 2005 cobalt

    I found this on a website try this

    1. Put the newly cut Master key into the keyway and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. A "security" indicator
    light on the dashboard will stay on for 10 minutes.
    2. Within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON (RUN)
    position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes (Do not remove the key.)
    3. Again, within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON
    (RUN) position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes. (Do not remove the key.)
    4. When the light goes off the third time, the new key is programmed into the computer and will start
    the car. Remove the key and then re-insert it into the ignition lock and start the car.
    All previously stored codes will be erased. To stop the process at any time, simply remove the key and use
    an existing key to start the car.

    1996 Toy Tocoka ignition/starter

    that is a starter solenoid problem.

    starter has its own solenoid. the big round thing besides the real motor.

    it has contacts inside which could be worn out .

    that is why sometimes it make contact and sometimes not.

    Ignition issue

    have the starter checked and also does the dashboard lights dim when trying to start

    1. Try putting the gear shift in neutral and then attempt to start. If your VUE starts, replace the neutral safety switch.

    2. Turn on the headlights and attempt to start while someone is watching for the lights to dim. If the lights dim while trying to start, remove starter and have it tested.

    3. Take proof of ownership to the dealer and have them cut a new key. There is a chip inside the key, that when it's inoperative, will let you turn the key to the start position, but vehicle will not start.
