It sounds like the brushes are gone on the starter motor. A sure sign is if the noise it is making is a fast whining noise with no hint of the engine turning over then suspect the brushes. Hope this helps.

Could be your starter. If you turn it and it doesn't crank, should be the starter.

My 2000 toyota tacoma truck just won't turn on. My lights work, so I assume its not the battery or alternator..perhaps the spark plug or starter maybe the problem..it was running just fine yesterday..there...


So what does "turn on" mean?? either the engine turns over or it doesnt. If you hear 1 heavy click when you turn the key to crank, but it doesnt turn over, I would suspect you need starter contacts replaced, but only a starter/alt shop is going to repair it, most shops will only replace the starter. Sometime if yoiu just keep trying it will turn over. But dont let it go, get it fixed ASAP.

Starter will not turn off, 1998 toyota tacoma


Either the starter has failed or you have a bad ground. I would say starter.

It's not a toyota tacoma it's a 90 Lexus ls400


Your starter drive is staying engaged. Either the starter has failed, or your ignition switch is keeping the starter engaged. Try moving the key back from "start" while the noise is occurring. More than likely, the starter is the culprit.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
