Ignition just clicks when trying to start. Battery is charged.

Check your battery connections on the battery itself, and to the starter. A loose cable or one that is corroded will keep it from getting the proper voltage where it needs to go.

My 1984 Mercedes 300td will not crank over the battery is fine and the fuses are fine please help

There's nothing at all when you turn the ignition key? maybe just a clicking noise?

Start with the basics - the things that you can check and fix yourself.
  1. Are the battery cables tight?
  2. Check the earth cable where it connects to the engine/bodywork. Make sure it is clean and is actually earthing properly
  3. Check that none of the wires in either positive or earth cable are broken/corroded. This can cause non-starting.

1984-mercedes-300td-will-not-crank-over-drn4r4jcf5cpqfgonvky3zim-5-1.jpeg Batteries need a good earth.

If your car has automatic transmission it will only start in park or neutral. This is controlled by a separate solenoid - usually located on the side of the transmission case. If dirty or faulty, it will cause non-starting problems.

The starter motor could be sticking or faulty. First check the cable to the starter motor. To check if it is just sticking, put the car in gear and 'rock' it - that may free a sticking starter motor.

You say that your battery is fine. Are you absolutely positive? A failing/faulty battery can still be charged .. it will put the lights on - but it won't supply enough amps to crank the engine.

A quick check here is to either borrow a battery from your neighbour's car or use a car and booster cables to boost-start yours. If your car cranks over and fires up your battery is faulty.

If your car doesn't crank it points to starter motor trouble or solenoid trouble.

2002 Forester Subaru won't start.

Sounds like a winding has gone down on the starter, and if the starter stops on that winding, just the solenoid clicks, when it does it tap the starter body a few times and try to start it again, it can just move the rotor enough to get it to start, but it will need a new starter

Car will not start

Sounds like either the starter motor has jammed or your battery is down on power so unable to engage the starter motor solenoid. Cures: 1.Hit starter motor with hammer using short sharp shocks - this often frees the stuck starter motor engaging cog. 2.Put car in gear and attempt to rock the car back and forth. 3. Jump start using stronger battery. 4.Charge battery - you might want to check that your alternator is charging the battery, the easiest way is to use a multimeter on the 0-20volt DC scale and see that the voltage is higher than the battery in a non running state. You should see a reading of around 13-14 volts. Obviously you will need the motor running to check this.Lastly if possible try bump starting.

Battery has tested good, lights, radio, etc. are on, but when trying to start, you just get a "tick". Starter?

sounds like it.

Verify battery voltage should be approx 12.30V + give or take a few tenths with the engine off
When you turn over the car, the voltage should not drop below 10.5 volts at all

I would verify these voltages as it takes a lot of juice to turn over a starter and start a motor. I have seen batterys look fine but can't supply a voltage. I assume you have tried jumping your vehicle as well with the donor car running about 2k rpm? If the vehicle starts like this it is most likely a battery issue and not a starter.

Sorry I truly suspect 7 year old batteries a lot more than 7 year old starters. As for the click, the starter is made up of 2 parts, first, it pushes the gear out to engage the flywheel, when the gear is fully out, and engages, the starter starts turning to start the car. The click would be the gear either attempting to engage or engaging and the motor part of the starter failing. The starter will be located in the area of where the transmission and engine mate, usually in the front of the motor. Any autozone should be able to test your starter to ensure it's still good or tell you what failed on it.

I Starting problem...

if you notice this van should have a statrer solenoid on the fender as well as on the starter, clean the body of the solenoid on the fender area and make sure that the ground cable is secure and tight do not wiggle which is just making it loose if it is so go under the vehicle and make sure that the cable is tight
