FROM WHAT YOU HAVE DESCRIBBED .IT SOUNDS LIKE THE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT IS INCOMPLETE .IF YOUR LIGHTS DOES NOT COME ON AND NO ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS ARE NOT WORKING AND IT IS A NEW BATTERY. CHECK YOUR GROUND WIRE FOR LOOSE OR CORRODED CONNECTIONS .ENSURE THE BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED .THEN CHECK ALL CONNECTIONS FOR TIGHTNESS AND CORROSION .IF YOUR STARTER WAS AT FAULT IT WOULD NOT PREVENT THE OTHER ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS FROM WORKING .

SOURCE: Grinding starter on my 1988 Ford Bronco II

the sound you hear is the starter grinding against broken teeth on the flywheel, for that to be repaired the flywheel on the vehicle will need to be replaced.

When you installed the starter you may have inadvertently put the gears in a bind. Make sure the bendix meshes properly with the flywheel. The bendix is the small gear on the starter that slides out and connects with the flywheel when the ignition key is turned.

starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

Accidently crossed jumper cables on my 95 buick lesabre has power but wont click or turn over


does that have a silonoid on the starter or seperate from the starter? either way i would test the silonoid. i usually take a screw driver an touch it post to post on the. make sure to keep your hand on the handle an not on the metal because you might get shocked. usually when a vehicle wont turn over but clicks its the starter but if it doesnt click then its the silonoid. hope this helps.

If it is getting power to the starter when You are Not jumping it Then the starter ie going out.
Have a test light on the pos cable where it conects to the starter and have someone turn the key to the start position and the light should light up.If not test the starter silonoid.

New starter 1 year ago -allways turns over on first try but sometimes will get clicking on subsequent tries -often takes several 5-10 clicks before it will engage again


You either have dirty/loose battery cables, or more likely a battery that is in need of replacement. Check the battery connections 1st, if ok, bring the car to a parts store for a free check of the battery and charging system. I believe you will find that the battery is at the end of its life.

Turned the key to start the car but got a rapid clicking sound


this is common this time of year with the seasons changing.The clicking is the result of low battery voltage/amps and it's the starter clicking but not turning over the motor.
It's got to be either the battery is getting old and needs to be changed or there is something preventing it from charging, OR it's dirty battery terminals.
Check the battery connections to make sure they are clean, corrosion free and snug. If they are dirty, get a battery terminal cleaning brush and clean the battery top, and terminals.. be cautious because the acid is highly corrosion and will not only burn your skin but it can eat holes in your clothes...
You can neutralize the acid/corrosion with baking soda. apply liberally and hose off with water.
If your battery is dry on top, and the connections are clean, if the battery is more than 3 years old, it's most likely going bad. Simply swap it for a new one. If the battery is newer and the connections are clean, then you may have a charging issue...
But also check to make sure you didn't leave courtesy lights on overnight... If that's the case, get a jumpstart or charge the battery.

Wont turn over


check the conections of the wires at the starter and silonoid disconect battery first as to not short anything out by bumping the engine wich is grounded if all conections are good then the bendex in the silonoid is not engaging all the way to operate the starter or the broshes in the starter ar woren out eather way just replace the starter a new one comes with the silonoid on it and they are only about 45-65 bucks at schucks and have a 1 year warranty. i dont recomend just replacing the silonoid on the starter cause adventuly you will have to replace the starter any ways. or if you are on a budget then u can remove the silonoid from the starter and sand the bendex in the silonoid with some fine grit sand paper and use air to blow any debres out of it and reinstall silonoid and it will get u by for a short time.

Starter won't engage or turn over


its the silonoid that bolts to the starter.the brushes inside the silonoid are not making good enough contact with the copper probe inside. solution buy a new starter or check the voltage going to the starter by checking the hot from the battery and the hot going from the starter to the alternator.
