Someone would need to check the starter for battery voltage and ground. The large battery cable should have voltage and the small wire should have voltage when the key switch is in start position. There may be a clutch switch or neutral safety switch in that circuit depending on the make model and year.

SOURCE: when starting car starter turns engine over slow.

It sounds like the battery don't have the cranking amps needed to turn the engine over fast enough. Even though it is starting, soon it will drain more and won't start.

Could be one of two things.

1. Your starter motor is no good.
2. If you turn on your lights and try to start the car and they dim to almost black, then you need to check the battery connections.

SOURCE: car will not start

For clarification:
When you turn the key to start, the engine will not roll over?
When you turn the key to the run position, do you here the fuel pump prime, a humming noise from the gas tank?
Have you replaced any other electronic components, key cylinder, body control module?
Let me know.
Regards,

What is wrong when you turn the key to start and the radio and all the instruments turn on but the starter doesn't click and the engine doesn't turn on even after trying to jump start it


Dead battery

Dangerous practice to try & jump a dead battery

The battery cables could be loose at either end or corroded internally

Most likely the battery is worn out, if original to car
since it was new, or the starter solenoid is worn

You do not want to jump any vehicle made after the
year 2000 or your asking for possible problems with
todays electronics.

You need a good battery that has been tested & fully
charged, then only jump with a jump pack,not another car

2005 sedona won't start all of a sudden. Doesn't make a sound except for a tiny whirring sound like the feul injectors. Replaced starter...still won't start. checked all fuses...they are good....


you could just have dead cell in the battery which isn't getting enough amps to the starter,, have the battery LOAD checked,, that will tell you if the battery is actually good, just because it registers 12 volts isn't necessarily an indication that the required amps are present.

Wont start , checked battery and its good. Before the problem it turned hard , altinator reley clicks no turn of engine . Is it the starter ?


Just because the battery says 12 volts doesn't mean its good,, It need the right amount of amps to crank the vehicle, while 12 volts will give the impression that your battery is good. will it jump start? if so you have a bad battery ,, One cell could be enough to drop the amps you need, I've seen new batteries do the same thing, Have it LOAD checked, to make sure that the battery will preform as needed with the correct amps.

2001 s430 bought new battery car wont start


Check for a good/clean connection on your battery terminals.Make sure it's on good & tight, then try to start the car - if that's not it. Get a jump, then go to Auto Zone, O'Reilley's, etc and get the battery & the starter checked. I'm betting it's either a poor connection, bad battery or your starter is going out (or possibly the starter relay switch) Start with your connections - that's the easy fix.

My 2000 ford focus will not start. It does not make any noise but the lights go on. It doesn't even turn over. My mechanic disconnected the remote car starter and that seemed to help but now I'm...


If it's not a dead battery, it could have bad connections. Check battery connections for tightness

Check the battery cable connection on the start solenoid, usually very near the battery. Check all wires on the sloenoid.

Check solenoid cable to starter for tightness at both ends.
If starter & battere are good it has to be one of above'

Good Luck

It's getting gas, the battery's good, the fuel pump is working, & I just replaced the rotor, cap, plugs & wires. Every few weeks or so though, she just doesn't start. The only...


At first blush, it sounds like the distributor cap isn't seated. Since it's happening when the engine is cold and at night, I'm guessing condensation is causing the problem. Try spraying starter fluid on the cap the next time the car doesn't start. This will dispel any condensation. If the car starts, that would be a good place to start.

1991 Lexus 400 - engine doesn't start - battery seems charged - 12.3 volts - makes clicking sound only - doesn't turn over at all.


Is it one click or multiple clicks. If it's multiple clicks, it sounds like a dead battery. Voltage isn't always an indicator of a good battery, you need to have enough cranking amps to be able to start an engine also. If you have dash lights and it only clicks once, you could have a bad starter. An easy way to check this is to try and jump start the vehicle. If it starts up with a jump start, you need a new battery. If it still doesn't start up and it just clicks, you probably need a new starter.

Good Luck!
