How do I get it running again?

It's possible the "new starter" has a bad solenoid so the actual starter motor never gets enough "juice" to turn. I have come across this problem several times. You may also have a serious battery drain, so there was enough "juice" to make the solenoid to Tik but not enought to turn the starter motor itself. I'd check the battery again, or try a different battery. The battery connections may have enough corrosion to prevent proper recharge. The charging system may not be performing properly.

I have a 2001 nissan sentra 1.8L that keeps blowing the battery fuse. The car wouldnt run and the test concluded it was the battery. We replaced that, it still didnt run so we replaced the alternator. Now...

there is a short after the battery fuse so check the wiring for shorts , breaks , burns on the manifold . loose wires at the starter shorting out . If the circuit includes a relay or starter solenoid (remote) the have that unit checked out for internal shorts.

Replace battery. Just won't turn over. Some clicking noise not coming from the starter though. 2002, 4 cylinder.

This is one of two things. Either it is the starter solenoid or the starter itself. You can take the starter off and take it to Autozone and see if the starter is good. But it is going to be one of the two.

Hello, day before yesterday my car wont start i turn the key it made one click noise nothing else i tried again same a boost and car started worked fine all day ,, took car to autozone auto...

You were told the battery and alternator was good? how did they check your alternator? did they perform a load check on the battery? you should check the battery out yourself with a cheap digital should read at least 12.5v..if not the alternator is not charging your cars battery that is why a jump keeps it going for about a day and then your battery will drain and it wont start again until you get another jump; or your serpentine belt is worn out and slipping. Do the windows fog up in cold weather only?...because that would be normal with you sitting in your car for awhile with a dirty inside windshield and trying to start the car for long just could be a coincidence. The only reason your car started that time in haste was because it sat overnight and it gave the battery a chance to charge up somewhat and it barely had enough juice to turn it over. have AAA or someone jump start you, then take a voltage reading right as it starts and you should see the voltage rise to about 14.5v then stabilize slowly down to 13v or>. this voltage is being properly regulated!

Car wont start, acts like battery is dead. battery shows full charge. full lights, buzzers, etc. put it on charger-didnt start...cleaned cable connections-didnt start...tried to jump with truck-didnt...

Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.

Car wont start, makes a clicking sound under the hood

try replacing the starter it may be bad, its not your clutch sensor if it was it would do nothing at all. try turning your motor over by hand the starter gear maybe stuck to the flex plate or push start the truck, shut it off and then try to start it if i does nothing but click replace the starter then

My car keep cutting off

check the ground cable from the battery,the alternator and starter.There may be a loose or corroded ground that is drawing juice from the battery.

Will not start even with new starter and battery and new fuses and clutch switch.

Check the voltage on the big line of the battery terminal cable running to the starter it should be 12 volts with car off. This line is attached to the big nut on the starter, and also check to be sure the small black cable is connected to the bolt that holds the starter, the long thin bolt going to the starter towards the transmission bell housing. On some models of the cavalier there is a module mounted on the front of the car to fix a defect. If you face the front of the car this module is near the battery on the right and has one small bolt, it is extremly small, which is in the middle. Unplug this module and check it with a multimeter, I think pins pin 34, and 35. The module has a diagram pointing to the connection point for checking it.I would not change your alternator when you have lights and everything else but the starter is working.
