    Let Me Explain When Your Starter Goes Bad It Will Just Click From Under The Vehicle And Not Turn Your Most Likely Getting Lights Radio Etc. Now even If You Got A Jump From Another Battery The Vehicle Wont Start. But If You Manually Pushed The Vehicle And Kick Started It It Will Start Cause You Just Did The Starters Job.
    Happy Fixing The Job Should Take About 30 Minutes And You'll Be Up And Running.

    Thanks For Using

Where is the starter located on my 2003 Buick LeSabre?

You have triggered the security system. Try turning the key to the ON position without starting. Wait 10 minutes. NO LESS. Turn key back, then try to start. If that doesn't work, you may need to bypass.

Car will not turn over. the battery is charged and i can pop the clutch

Does the enginge turn over but not start when you pop the clutch? Or do the tires drag to a stop? If it drags to a stop you might be siezed up. If it turns over but does not start check for spark at the distributer via wire and start from there. Maybe cap-rotor etc. Good luck

Trying to locate safety start switch on a Honda CRV 2003

The starter safety switch, also called a clutch interlock switch on a manual ****** is usually located under the clutch pedal near the top where it goes through the firewall. Depressing the clutch activates it.

2006 chevy cobalt LS with the 2.2L.. Never had issue starting in the past. I came home on lunch, went to go back to work and when I turned the key I heard a loud "CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK" for so...

Sounds like you have a battery issue but could be the alternator wasnt charging it also last u drove and ran the battery down the best way to go is remove the battery from your trunk and take it into either a parts store or battery store and have them test it may take a while as they may have to charge it first to get a valid test so plan on dropping it off early in the day and returning a couple hours later if the battery tests ok after a full charge then reinstall it and should start with a full charge and then return to either your parts or battery store and they should be able to do a on car alternator test

2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 Battery died and Replaced also Starter still no start just loud click from new starter and does not turn over engine but can be push started by pop clutch and runs fine

Assuming you replaced the solenoid with the starter, it may be the relay. If the relay is not making a good connection, it might have trouble throwing the solenoid. The relay should be in the relay box under the hood. You can break the relay open and watch it work while someone turns the key to verify the problem.
