This sounds like a weak battery or corrosion on the battery cable connections. The sound you hear is the relay and not the cylinoid.

My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it

Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer

The fuse panel in the engine #42 is the wrong info,42 if I am correct is the brake fluid level or the parking brakes. For the vehicle to not start just can be a starter problem. Here is a diagram tell me which fuse it iscansmo_180.gif

I would check your battery. I would also look for loose grounds. The clicking you hear is your fuel pump turning on. I would check your battery voltage and, have the battery load tested.

My blazer will not start, the lights come on cd player works but when you go to turn the key over it does not make the clicking sound so i know its not the battery. But why won't it turn over and start?

This issue happens a lot with these vehicles.

What you may want to do is this; Put your key in the 'Run' Position, not 'Start', and press on the Brake, then move the shifter all the way towards the back, so the red marker is on the '2'. Then, remove your foot from the break, and then move the shifter all the way back to the Park position. Next switch your key back to the 'Off' position.

Now, try to start your car.

If it starts, the issue was that you did not have the shifter all the way in the Park position. If it does not want to start, check your fuse box and see if you have a blown fuse. (Make sure if you replace a fuse that you replace it with the same type and rating).

If the fuses look OK, then you may have an issue with the starter solenoid. Turn the key back go the Off Position, slowly turn the key to the On Position, slowly. Listen carefully. You should hear at least a 'click'. This is the solenoid engaging but not turning. If you hear that click, then turn the key to the Start Position. If it doesn't turn over, the issue may be with the Starter.

Fortunately, the Starter has the Starter Solenoid attached to it and it normally comes as one unit. There are two bolts that hold the Starter in place. Make sure, if you are going to change out the Starter, that your remove the Positive Battery Cable from the Battery. The Positive Battery Cable goes directly to the Starter. If you don't remove that cable from the Positive Battery Post/Terminal, you may cause an arc under the engine. Trust me, you don't want to do that.

Let me know if that helps..

My 2004 pontiac grand prix gt wont start when i went to turn it on this morning to go to work nothing happened it just made a clicking noice. The guy at pep boys said that the battery was good. when i try...

if you turn headlights on and turn key to start do you hear clicking? if so starter is possibly bad,lets trouble shoot your problem.suggest you check the fuses under hood in black box,make sure those are good. when you turn the key, you should hear at least a click or else the starter is not drawing current.try turning the headlights on and at same time turn the key and try to start, if lights go dim the starter is drawing current, does it click? if so then bad starter. if no noise at all,,still could be a bad starter.suggest that you remove the starter and have it checked out.also make sure the car is in park for sure before you do any of this. hope this helps!!

My 1992 Buick Park Ave won't start part of the time. It isn't the starter, or the battery or cables to it, or the ignition. The engine purrs once it starts and it isn't an engine problem. It is just like...

Yeah it could be the igntion switch, specially if you don't even hear a relay clicking. This could also be caused by a loose connection aroun the battery area, check all the connection around the main fuse under the hood, and around the battery area. Next time it happens turn the key to on position and check voltage to a main fuse. If the 12 volt is missing then the problem is around there somewhere.
