My car wont turn on and i change the oil and put a new starter in


I think you mean the engine won't start. If the starter is not turning the engine at all, some wires have not been reconnected. The starter has a heavy current cable from the battery, and a smaller (about 2-3mm) wire that connect the starter solenoid. If this is not connected, the starter will not work.

If the starter does turn, check all the wiring again, something is not connected.

Dash lights working but car won't start


Find the starter should be up front where the tranny meets the engine get someone to help u take a regular hammer & TAP! not hit the starter while the other person is turning the key& see if starter starts to engage. If it works you need new starter if not idk without physical having the car in front of me.

The engine light is on, i could not start the car and was told the starter was shot. i let it sit a couple of days and now the car starts. when i took it to the mechanic they could not start the car...


The engine light will come on BECAUSE the car has not started. In fact, if you turn your key (without starting) to the on position.... your engine light should come on. It just does. It does sound like you need a new starter though. Once they start dying, they work intermittently.

My 2004 330ci won't start, does not turn over. The battery is fine, all electrical in the car work fine, plus trying to jump car does not work & a green light is showing on the battery in the truck....


If the battery is fine, why jump it? Faulty thinking to state or think: all electrical in the car work fine. If it did the starter motor would be turning the engine over. The starter motor work on electrical...not all is fine.

check: 1) 60a starter fuse/relay. 2) voltage to starter when turning key to activate starter motor, this will rule out ignition switch or relay. 3) apply direct voltage to starter motor to detect bad starter motor.

When I turn the ignition, the dashboard lights up but the car will not start (the motor does not sound to be turning over)


hi, if when you turn the key nothing happens or you just hear a faint clicking sound then this indicates that the starter motor needs replacing.

If you open the bonnet and get someone to turn the key to start the car you might hear a clicking sound coming from the starter motor if you hear this then this indicates the starter motor needs replacing, if on the other hand you hear nothing at all then you need to check all the wires going to the starter.
Also check the earth wires coming from the battery check they are all connected where they earth out on the body of the car and where it connects to the engine.

You could also try giving the starter motor a few hard hits with a hammer this usually gets it working for a few times.
Also if you car is manual gear box then put it in say 2nd gear then get someone to push the car slightly so that you are turning the engine that way then try starting using the key this also sometimes get the starter working be be warned this isnt permanent fix so get the starter changed sooner rather than later ok

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