Question about Cars & Trucks
The starter motor has been labouring over the past few months and on saturday the car wont start... the battery is full and everytime I turn the key the starter just doesn't work and it resets the battery. it sounds as if the starter is stuck as it tries for a split second the stops.
_Please have the battery tested on a load bank at a shop, don't assume it is good.

weather gets cold starter will draw more cold crank amps! battery must be able to provide so check battery for load test if stands up then I would replace that power sucking starter this is what they do before they quit on you in summer it is un- noticeable cold snap plays it out well good luck and this is the ideal place to start!!John/toronto canada

That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.

yes the starter is not getting the required pressure to start the car.as when you insert the key in ignition module the car gives command to the starter and car cranks and throw pressure to the alternater and that throws pressure with current to the sparkplugs and the spark comes and car gets started.as its the faulty wiring that gor misallighned and short circuited.as the wiring has to be checked at each point and that has to be cleared.also check out starter solenoid with starter .solenoid is located in the starter unit.
please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.
