Forget the 12v boy racer light,put a drop tester on the battery and you will find it has no reserve amperage.its the amps that do the work not worrying about some silly gizmo thats reads the volts --thats only good for finding live cables when fitting a radio

2003 jeep grand cherokee will not turn over


Constant 12-volt power is applied through 40 A FUSE 8 in the power distribution center (PDC) to the engine starter motor relay and through 40A fuse 14 to the ignition switch. If the park/neutral position switch is connected to ground, turning the ignition switch to START causes 12 volts to pass through 10A fuse 31 in the junction block and the engine starter motor relay coil to close the relay and apply 12 volts to the starter. Any of the parts mentioned could be open or defective.

First check if the ignition switch is getting power-either through a maxi fuse in your under hood fuse/relay box, or a fusible link coming from a battery source.

HEAD LIGHTS WONT TURN ON


Check the fuse to the headlight circuit which is inside the cabin , under the dashboard. If this is good the supply to the cluster switch, the supply to the relay unit and also the supply to the relay unit. finally the supply circuit to the headlight assembly, the ground connection to the headlight unit and finally the lamps and holders.check using a multimeter for the 12 volt line and the line continuity.

Car wont start just one click and a hum when key is turned


Hello! do you have a multimeter and a little experience using it? if not just let me know...If you do set it to read 12 volts...clip the (-) probe to the (-) battery terminal and the (+) probe to the Brown wire that connects to the starter motor...Have someone turn the key to start...+12 volts must be on that Brown wire...If not the starter relay (even though it clicks) is defective...Check for 12 volts on the large Red lead connected to the starter...If voltage is correct the starter is defective; replace starter...See diagram below for location of starter...Guru...saailer

Battery is weak or bad. The clicking noise is the starter solenoid and is a result of...not enough power in the battery.

96 Chevy blower motor wont work


If you have a test light,check for power at the blower motor,see if it will come on with a wire from battery positive ,to the positive on the blower motor,if it does not,check to see if the motor is grounded,then check to see if the relay has 12 volts to it.The relay should have 12 volts to it,with the switch off.Turn the switch on,and use test light only,touch the probe to all the terminals on the relay,one at a time,with the relay plugged up,when the test light touches the ground,on the relay,it will activate the blower motor,ground the test light of course.Use a test light to chase down the problem,it is the best toll for this,and is not exspensive.

Sounds like the starter solenoid is working, but the starter motor isn't. If you have a voltmeter or test light, measure for light/12 volts at the motor terminal while someone tries the key. If the solenoid is what is 'clicking', but nothing at the motor terminal, change the solenoid. If you get light/12 volts, then the motor itself is in trouble.
