Car won t start not battery


rule 1> check all fuses.
rule 2> clean battery lugs.

this is NO CRANK, no car starts , if it can't crank over, (mine i can push start (m/t trannys rule)
step 1 is jumper starting, with jumper cables.
if it starts, the battery is bad, or simple discharged.
if it dont jumper start. then the starting system is bad.
no transmission stated?
the A/T you wiggle the shiftlever, to start.
or start in NEUTRAL, this uses fresh start contacts.

if you get this far and it will NOT crank over
then hot wire the starter.
if that works,then the starter is good and the key line is bad
if the starter is still dead hot wired, the starter is bad (battery good )

Starter motor car won't start


I am guessing that you already suspect the starter motor. If the battery is fully charged and the car won't crank over that could be the problem. You could try jumping across the starter solenoid first, if you can get to it and see if maybe it is just the solenoid. You could take the starter to a place like AutoZone and they can test it for you.

1966 mustang 289. won't start, jumped across solenoid, started. Replaced solenoid-starter wouldn't disengage, replaced starter, back to square 1, jumping across solenoid to start - whats my...


Ignition problem... No signal from ignition to solenoid...run a starter draw test to confirm starter is ok --- You can run your jump wires to a remote starter button or switch to get around it for now.

I hope this helps.

Van won't start. Only have clicking noise. Have a new battery and had the starter checked.


I know you had the starter tested but i still thing you have one of two things going on here, first acid damage to the Positive battery cable at the battery, if this is present you will notice the outside of the cable seems swelled yo under the red insulator, this causes low voltage, enough to click the starter solenoid but not enough to turn the starter motor. The other problem is burnt contact inside the starter solenoid itself, this problem will cause a clicking noise from the solenoid with no starter engagement, it very common. The starter solenoid is near the battery just follow the Positive cable from the battery to it, carefully jumper across it, does the starter engage? Here is a picture of the starter solenoid.

Car won't start.. It just clicks. Tried jump starting it but it wouldn't do anything but click.


check for corrosion at the terminals of the battery and also the starter, if thats clean ,, your starter may be stuck, if you remove the starter you can bench check it by attaching a jumper cable (positive side) to the post for the starter, and tapping the negative side of the Jumper to the case of the starter,, it should Jump into position, Prior to doing that check,, look for any blown fuses, but if its clicking,, Its trying so I doubt its a fuse issue

My 1998 Jimmy won't start. Just got a new starter. My battery is drain, when i use the jumper cables it still won't turn over.


with a new starter, this sounds like a bad battery cable or terminal end. the easier way to figure this out w/out checking the voltage drop across a whole battery cable is to affix the jumper cables strategically to find the bad one. Put jumper (+) on batt (+) and jumper (-) directly onto a piece of unpainted engine metal and not in the way of moving parts. If it starts this way then you've got a bad ground cable. If it didn't start, put jumper (+) on the hot post of the starter solenoid (there are 2 posts, only touch the one w/ the fatter cable going to it) or on a remote jump point if equipped, and put jumper (-) to batt (-). If it now starts you need a positive battery cable, or just a battery-to-starter cable (if separate)
