Sounds like the solenoid on your starter is faulty to me.

Personally, to test this, I would run a jumper wire from the battery and bypass the solenoid, and energize the starter,

It all depends on your mechanical ability, and access to the starter.

if you dont feel confident, dont stab around at your engine with a live wire

I have a 1996 BMW 750 IL The battery is at full charge but when I turn the key to start there is nothing – lights are on seatbelt indicator on but no power to the starter can you help me with this


Turn on your headlights and try to start the car. If the headlights go from bright to dim or off , then the battery or it's connections are bad, or loose or corroded.
If the headlights stay bright, then the problem is likely the starter or it's connections.
Hope this helps.

My 2001 buick century custom sedan 3.1 V-6 will not start at all....no spark...nothing at all......with the headlights on ...they stay bright when I turn the key to try to start but nothing at all..no...


Firstly it is advisable to energise the starter solenoid manually. If the engine cranks the fault is - immobiliser, ignition switch, relay, supply, wiring or connections.

If the engine doesn't crank the fault is likely the starter motor or solenoid.

I have a 2000 sl1. It started up fine, ran fine,went got gas then to the store came out and the car wouldn't start or crank. Headlights are bright and they stay that way when i turn the key. This leads me...


hi.
if the lamps stay bright, and you hear a click from the starter, then it is alsomst certainly the starter that is at fault. the click is probably from the solenoid on the starter. it could be a faulty feed wire, faulty contacts on the solenoid, or most likely is worn brushes on the starter.

check the wires going to the starter, and if they look ok, remove the starter and check the brushes.

With the key off, press the odometer reset button on the instrument panel. Hold the button down and turn the key to the "on" position without starting the car. The light should go out within 10-15 seconds.

I have a 91 accord coupe. I won't start. I checked my battery and it's holding 12 volts. All of the rest of my electrical work. I turned the headlights on and turned the key and the lights did no dim....


Check the starter relay for operation. It should be in the engine compartment fuse box. If the relay is good, you can make a jumper wire and connect directly from the battery positive terminal to the starter solenoid terminal--the single small wire going to the starter. If you get cranking, the starter soleniod is good and the problem is in the circuitry that includes the ignition switch and starter relay. If the solenoid still doesn't click, it's bad.

Alternator failed and blew the headlights 2 qty. dim, 1 qty. bright. Replaced the alternator and the headlights, but the dims don't stay on when the brights are engaged.


Hi:
Normal operation of the headlight circuit is to just have one set of headlights on a time, bright or dim, but not both.

Where is the fuse for the dash lights . the light are bright with key on. Go dull when the headlights are turned on


That is normal. They go bright because during the daytime the outside light is also bright so the lights compensate for the outside brightness by making your dash lights also bright. When you turn your headlights on it assumes it is nighttime and you don't need to have the brightness to see the dash lights so it compensates for this. If you want them to be dimmer, near the light switch there is a roller button to turn your interior lights on just roll that some and it will either make the dash lights brighter or dimmer.
