You need to see the dealer on this, most likely you have a PCM issue or a defective start relay. Special testing must be done to determine the actual cause. This is not something you can do at home. If you have an extended warranty use it.

This could be a problem with your starter -- if you know a bit about engines try tapping the starter with a wrench while someone turns the key (not too hard so you don't damage it if this is not the problem). If your starter motor has a "dead spot" tapping it can get it to free itself up and might help. If this DOES help, please consider changing your starter so you don't have to keep going through this problem. If tapping the starter does not help, it might just be dead altogether. If you are doing your own work, try replacing it and hopefully that should help. If you are not going to do your own work on the car, a mechanic should be able to give you a proper diagnosis and repair the issue without too much hassle.

This sounds like there is a dead spot in your starter. The easiest way to resolve this issue is to replace your starter. Many times, if you take a lot of short-distance trips over the life of your car, the wiring inside the starter itself will wear (short trips means starting it more often, causing a lot of wear over time). Then the inner wiring of the starter wears too much, it forms a "dead spot" -- when the starter is stopped at a very specific spot i will not form the magnetic force needed to torn the starter motor. This is a common issue which can be dealt with for a time if you have to save the money to replace the starter. Tapping the starter, or arcing it with a screwdriver makes the inner workings of the starter jump a little, allowing it to move out of the dead spot and kick over as normal, but it is only a temporary fix. Unless you refurbish electronics for a living, it is very unlikely that you will be able to repair the starter on your own, and such a repair takes some time, so you are better off to replace it than try to repair the starter itself.
As long as the starter does not happen to stop in the dead spot, it will work as normal ... but in time the dead spot will spread, causing the issue to worsen. You can keep forcing it to turn with the two tricks you used until you have had the opportunity to earn the money to replace the starter (or until you have a day off to get the repairs done) .. but over time this can cause more damage to other parts of the car, so I recommend replacing the starter as soon as you can.

SOURCE: when my truck gets hot

the clicking noise is most likely coming from the solenoid on the starter motor, the solenoid is like a big switch with contacts inside of it,when you turn the key to start the engine these contacts come together to transfer the power to the starter motor,if the solenoid can't be taken apart & the contacts cleaned or replaced it will have to be replaced.......hope this helps....cheers

you do not get an clicking sounds from your starter at all when you turn the key ? You might have to replace the starter because they do go bad on you. I just had the same problem myself and had to replace the starter so fun job for me because I had to get underneath my Daewoo car to even get to the starter and replace it.

2010 Mitsubishi Outlander No Start, No Crank, No power locks, No radio, No...

Disconnect negative battery cable for 2 minutes, with the ignition switch in the on position, re-connect negative cable. The alarm may go off, Use the unlock button on the remote to shut it off. Shut the hood and start the truck. Hope this works for you as well as it did for me after 2 hours of wasted diagnostics. Good Luck!

Error Code: B2788
Blink Code: 41

Description: Communication Error (code does not match)
- Wire harness or connector.
- Immobilizer or ECM is water contaminated.
- Engine Control Module.
- Transponder key computer assembly.
- If you have replaced the key, ECM or immobilizer it needs to be programmed by a professional key maker.
- If it happened accidentally and you have the original working master key or remote, do the following.
- With ignition switch off, open the driver's door, short the pins 4 and 13 with paper clip or auto wire in Data Link Connector (16 Pin), which is located under the dash on steering wheel side.
- Leave the driver"s door open, switch ON the ignition and leave it ON for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes, switch OFF the ignition, remove the jumper wire and start the engine. If the engine starts and the check engine light is ON delete the code with scan tool and the job is done.
- If it is a smart key, bring the remote facing the Toyota emblem just near the push start button to hear a sound and put the remote on passenger's seat for one minute to complete the registration process.
- If the problem persists, contact a professional key programming personnel.

Hello! Know for sure that you already fixed or burned your car lol... i had the same issue and resolved with an stupidity. There is a fuse that the car might or might not need depending if it does have an inmobilizer or not. Mine did not have it therefore the fuse was not needed. Once I removed it issue was fixed.

Hello! A few necessary items to successful troubleshooting; What engine is in the vehicle and, since it's a 1996, it has OBDII diagnostics and a Check Engine Light...Is the light on?...If so do you have access to a scanner to find out what trouble code or codes are stored?...Lastly, have you checked for spark? Because your saying it doesn't "seem" to be getting spark...Hate to hit you with a lot of questions but without these particular pieces of information it would be difficult to narrow down...Please add any thing else that seems important...Awaiting your reply...Guru...Saailer

No power to drivers door all switces and functions including dome light,mirrors controls, window switches and even the alarm doesn't work on drivers door only

The door functions in your vehicle are controlled by several control modules and are dependent on proper class2 communications between several modules including
> Body Control Module
> Drivers Door Module
> Passenger Door Module
> Powertrain Control Module
> Instrument Panel Control Module

Begin the system diagnosis with the Diagnostic System Check - Door Systems. The Diagnostic System Check will provide the following information:

> The identification of the control module(s) which command the system.
> The ability of the control module(s) to communicate through the serial data circuit.
> The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status.
> The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.

It cranks but won't start

{: ) There are many reasons why an engine would only crank but won't start. To mention a few, there could be fuel system issues like the fuel pressure, the fuel quality, clogged fuel injectors, or there may be insufficient fuel.
It could also be that the vehicle is immobilized, a key or ignition system problem, the wirings, the fuses and relays, and the communication of modules like the ECM, BCM, TCM, and others.
If conventional methods doesn't work, a scan tool diagnostic is highly recommended. It can effectively analyze the datas stored on your vehicle modules, trim down other possibilities, and isolate the root cause.
