Suspect battery problems. THe positive terminal developes a hard black coating inside the lead terminal and around the battery post Remove this using rough sand papaer to a shiny finish on both units . Repeat the operation on the negative terminal. Try the starter again. If still nothing turn on the head lights try again noticing if the head lights go dim. IF they do check if the battery is charged OK then you have a problem in the starter motor IF it works some times and not at others you probably have a dead bar on the communator which means a replacement s-motor

Sounds like a starter to me. Pull it and take it to parts house for bench test. Do not replace unless they say it is bad.

SOURCE: battery at full charge everything

That's exactly what it sounds like to me. I would make sure you are getting full power to the starter but in most cases you are looking at replacing the starter. you can always pull it off and have it tested at your local autoparts store but don't bang it around to much as this may loosen what the problem is and it will test out fine. On a GM starter, while someone is turning the key you can hit on it with something and it may start right up because that will loosen things as well. You will still need a starter at least in the near future but this may at least get it started for you. The tapping on it thing works about 50 percent of the time. I hope this helps and good luck.

could be poor connection from battery to battery cable terminal. take off both pos. & neg. battery terminals, clean & reinstall, making sure there is a tight connection. if the cables are loose (even just one) or if the battery cable seems degraded with corrosion, they should be replaced. could also do a load-test on the battery... it should stay strong under load, and shouldn't drop to below 11 volts under load. if it does you have a bad battery, even though it may seem good otherwise.

My 1996 Toyota Vienta won't turnover with the key in ignition. Plenty of electrical power, air con runs as does the lights. Fitted with an immobilizer, wondered if that might have something to do


Check wiring to your starter make sure all the wires are secure. Its mainly sounds like you need a new starter. If you hear it clicking it is likely engaging just not spinning

87 Ford ranger will not crank. it will turnover but will not crank. i changed the sylanoed but still won't crank


Turning over & cranking is the same thing

Check for fuel pressure at motor with a gauge
when you turn the key on

Check for spark or injector pulse when cranking

If the motor won't turn at all, check relays & possible

My 2005 nissan altima won't crank or turnover. It justs makes this clicking noise. Can you help me?


The click is most likely the starter solenoid you hear

Should be a familiar sound you've heard may times
on other cars

I would guess you know how old the battery is?

If it is original,it is 8 years old & dead,if so, replace it

If it is only 3 years old ,check the voltage with a meter

Next the solenoid could be working as you hear it,but
it's contacts are burnt,it can be replaced

You remove the starter & change the solenoid

Don't want to do that, buy the entire starter at auto parts,
not a dealer,cost too much to even be there for any reason.

1995 toyota celica starts up when cold and will run until i get wherever i need to go. Then if i shut off and try to restart it doesnt make any clicking noise and wont try to turnover until cold.


So when your engine is hot the starter won't engage. Try cleaning and tightening the wires that are bolted to your starter first. You want bare shiny metal to metal at all your connections. Take care when unbolting the wires because you could strip or break the studs on the solenoid. If this doesn't help then I would say the solenoid is going bad and will need to be replaced. It's usually a good idea to replace the starter and solenoid as one unit. Hope this helps.
