Question about Cars & Trucks
I replace the starter with a new one, and it also has a brand new battery. I repaired both battery cables with new ones. I an getting volatgve to my starter from the positive end of the batter and I have a good ground. My dash lights come on and so does my car alarm. All the cars interior electrical works fine. I'm wondering if it's the neutral safety switch, starter relay or something so distant as my alternator. I would relaly prefer serious replies to this one, without any guessing.
I guess I will start by saying we can only guess because we are not there in person.
My first question would be, where is the noise coming from ?
If it is the starter, you could have missing teeth on the flywheel and nothing for the starter to engage.
Depending on the make model and year, if you have a starter relay other than the one on the starter it could be faulty.
As long as you have 12 volts and a couple hundred amps of power at the starter post, and a good ground, the starter should turn. If the neutral safety switch was faulty you would get nothing when you turn the key. And the alternator would not come into play until after the engine starts.
Can you turn the engine by hand ?
Can you jump the starter with a screwdriver or jumper wire and make it turn ?

Could be one of two things.
1. Your starter motor is no good.
2. If you turn on your lights and try to start the car and they dim to almost black, then you need to check the battery connections.

Connect battery>>>>try unlocking the vehicle from the inside (door closed), using the power un/lock button. Make sure the key is set to the "on" position. Most of the time this works. If this doesnt work, try using the key to lock and unlock the door through the key hole. Hopefully this helps!!
