Hi

Get a jump start with a Decent Thick set of jump leads from a friends car.

+ Positive terminal to + Positive terminal and --Negative to ---Negative.

I Suspect its just a flat battery.

Once its running, get your Battery tested, and your Alternator belt tension checked, if they are OK, then get the alternator charging rate tested.
If they all have a clean bill of health, the starter must be suspect.

I hope this helps you.

Good Luck !

John.

Yes it May well be the Starter , If Possible Seems unconventional But Raise car up in front take a Hammer and SMACK the STARTER 2-3 times if it starts then its the starter and even if not try it again it still may be Starter. What You Describe is Exactly what a Starter Will do if its Bad. Please if this helps Don't forget to RATE ME

How to diagnose vehicle will not start. Turn key and makes a click sound heard from dash or under hood.


Sounds like possible low battery. Could also be bad connection in starter switch, but test the battery first. Batteries do get old and don't hold charge. Check charging system, too.

Ticking noise


No, It is your anti thief activating, That's why your headlights are flashing and it also shuts of the fuel pump.Use your key fob to reset it.

1996 gmc Sierra- turn key and no noise under hood. New relay


WHAT RELAY? THE ONE IN THE UNDER HOOD FUSE BOX?...HOW DID YOU DETERMINE IT WAS BAD?...RELAYS IN MY VAST EXPERIENCE DO NOT FAIL OFTEN!
CHECK FOR 12 VOLTS AT HOT LEAD ON STARTER (THE LARGER WIRE USUALLY RED) GROUND BLACK LEAD TO STARTER BODY OR HOLD ON BOLT IF USING A TEST LIGHT OR MULTI- METER. IF NOT 12 V AT LEAST, YOU BACK UP ...TRACE WIRING, RIGHT BACK TO THE IGNITION SWITCH. BE SURE TO CHECK THAT ALL GROUND WIRES IN SERIES IS CLEAN AND TIGHT AS WELL. NO NOISE....MEANS NO STARTER ENERGIZATION!....FIRST PLACE TO CHECK!
***TRICK FOR YOU: TAP ON SIDE OF STarter body and car may crank over....it isCALLED "the magic hammer trick!

I have a 2005 Tahoe with 43,000 miles and it will not start. It is not the battery. When you turn on the key all it will do is click and all light will come on.


Most likely the battery--even though you say no

If the battery is new ,then the solenoid on the starter
or the starter it's self

2001 avalon winshield wiper motor location and wiper regular location . Wipers dont work all the time after last freeze here


check the fuses under the dash and under the hood

failing that go to auto zone they can show you the location and quote the parts price too
remem ber to turn on wipers and turn on ignition dont start the car look under hood listen for winding noise locate noise locate wiper motor

if making wiring noise remove and re conect wiper arms inside as they are prone to poping off if over loaded like when frozen to wind screen they pop the conector rather than burn the motor out ]

Turn ignition key but won't start..All power on, is it starter?


Can be a Junk Relay, access is limited, but giving the Starter a "crack" with a mallet, often cures the problem temporarily. But check the Battery terminals, and Cable to the Starter solenoid ,first for tightness and security.
