I Ask a Mechanic to change Starter and now most light are dead.

i would say check all the fuses again, both in passenger compartment and under the hood. plus, the mechanic should be responsible for this issue. it also sounds like you battery is not fully charged. i would also suspect, the starter was changed without disconnecting the battery and something was shorted as he installed the starter. good luck

2000 chevy s-10 won't crank.

I's hard to tell from your description what is going on with your vehicle but from what I gather it may be the ignition switch. When it does it again, you'll need a volt meter and someone to give you a hand to check it. Start by having someone hold the key in the start position and start at the starter solenoid checking the voltage.

You know you'll have power from the battery (or you should) but check all sources, 12 volts positive on the big post at solenoid and with the key in the start position 12 volts at the switch side as well. If you are getting 12 volts at the big terminal but not the switch (small) terminal, then start tracking back from there. You can track it back all the way to the ignition switch.

It shouldn't be hard to find the problem. If you know how to use a volt meter, there is no reason to replace parts. Most all electrical parts can be tested to see if they are good or bad. You can also check the ground sources as you go as well, start at the battery and see what your volt reading is and go from there. You shouldn't have much variance in the voltage on positive or ground. Hope this helps you.

Car wont start

If you mean a fuse has been blowing when turning to the start position, it is likely there is a short in the starter command cable attached to the solenoid, and probably to the bodywork.

Possibly, if this point is being chaffed, after extended time the section where the short is has broken open.

Check the wiring from the starter and work your way back looking for insulation damage.

Otherwise, the ignition switch may have been damaged by the repeated heavy currents.

2001 cheve malibu. The Automatic lights, fuel guage, power windows quit working. The radio comes on when you turn off the switch but goes off when you turn it on.

It sounds like a short in your ignition switch. I assume you engine will not start? Check your fuses because if it is a short it should have blown a fuse or you would have smelled burning isolation from the wires. If you find a fuse blown it could give you a starting place to start checking. If the ignition fuse is blown it is in the ignition, wiring, starter or ignition key switch.

When I insert key to start the car it will not turn at all. What is this part called?

The component is a starter. When you insert your key into the ignition and turn it, you switch on the power to the coil and vehicle computers. By turning the key to the start position it will supply power to the starter and solenoid which cranks the engine until you release the key allowing to return to the ignition on position. If the battery is weak the starter solenoid may engage producing a clicking sound, but it will not crank the engine. Another test is to turn on the dome light and try to start the vehicle, if you see the dome light dim when you are trying to start the car the battery is weak or the starter has a short. Starters are temperamental at times and can be intermittent working sometimes and malfunction other times. Your ignition switch, fuse, or relay could also produce symptoms of your vehicle not cranking.

My jeep won't start. It has power. Recently replaced the battery and connections. It is making a clicking noise when I turn the key.

Hi, the clicking noise you hear is the selenoid in the starter motor not engaging the drive to start the engine all you need to do is replace you starter motor and then you should find you will have no problems starting your car.

Another trick you could try just to get it started is give the starter motor a few hits with a hammer hit it quite hard but not hard enough to break it doing this will usually get it started but dont rely on this being a permanent fix as it could leave you stranded.

Also if you have a manual gear box you could get someone to help you push the car whilst its in gear with the clutch to the floor 2nd gear is best for this then once the car is rolling let the clutch up whilst the ignition is on this should then fire up the engine if it dont try the key as this will sometimes get the starter working again for a short while.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Turn ignition key but won't start..All power on, is it starter?

Can be a Junk Relay, access is limited, but giving the Starter a "crack" with a mallet, often cures the problem temporarily. But check the Battery terminals, and Cable to the Starter solenoid ,first for tightness and security.

1999 Toyota Corolla CE. For about 2 months, the engine does not start immediately. I need to turn the ignition key several times until it starts. Each time when I turn the key, a clicking sound happens...

it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,
