Question about 2000 Chevrolet S-10

1 Answer

Starter starts...engine dosn't crank...starter dosn't stop.

Turning the key, i would hear a faint clicking sound coming from the starter...after many tries...the starter finally engaged without starting the engine...turning the key to off position, the starter keeps running, forcing me to disconnect the battery in order for it to stop.

    2000 Chevy s10. starter runs with engine off, need to disconnect battery. plugged in or no, turn the key and starter click-click-clicks, engine doesn't turn over. My truck is now stuck at a gas station, any suggestions for a temporary fix at the least to get it home.

    Upon further investigation, its the Kelsey-Hayes anti-lock brake control that is running, not the starter. Thus the starter problem is simply a result of the abs control running down the battery. I simply unplugged the control and jumped my truck, but that doesn't address the issue of

    what happened to my abs control that it now runs non-stop even when the car is off?

Hi

An unusual one here !

Suspect the problem lies in the starter solenoid.

But most strange a for constant live feed with ignition off.

May possibly be more a relay problem ?

Good Luck

John.

P.S. Don´t forget to give me a rating please !

2004 Pacifica will not crank. Turn ignition and dash lights work but turning to start no starter engage. Hear relay click but no starter click. Could this be the key ignition tail piece broken?


Hi. If the click you hear when turning key to crank is from a relay start there. The fact you can hear the click means the ignition barrel is doing something and probably OK.

2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse won't crank over. Takes a few times turning the key over and over to get it to crank. Other times it starts right up no problem. Is my starter going out?


Not necessarily. You may simply have a bad connection at the battery or at the starter solenoid. You could also have a grounding problem at the starter or at the starter solenoid. Or you could have a failing contact in your key switch! When you try to crank the engine, but it does not crank, do you hear any clicks or any kind of rattle sound or buzz? If you hear a click but no cranking of the engine, then you may have a bad starter solenoid ... which, if available, is a lot cheaper than a replacement starter!

Engine will not crank, battery and starter have both been tested and pass, hear a high pitched spinning noise when turning the key over


The high pitched spinning sound you hear is the starter bendex trying to engage the flywheel. The starter may check out ok, but the bendex is turning but coming out. The starter will need replaced.

My 2004 Toyota Matrix will not start, when I turn onver the ignisiton key, nothing happens. The light turns on, radio plays, horn ok and battery voltage is 12,6 volts DC


Do you hear a slight click coming from the engine area??? If not your starter selenoid is bad, and needs replacement. If you do hear a click but the engine is having trouble or slow very slow time turning, then it's your battery. If you hear your starter click, but no turn, then its your starter not turning over. If your instrument lights dim out by alot when trying to turn, then it still your battery which is drain. The battery doesn't completly need to be drain in order for your horn, lights to not work, It could be your battery simply drain and doesn't have enough cranking power to roll over the starter. But in this case issue description, It sounds like it is the starter. Could take it out and bring it to autozone and have them test it out.

I turn the key and I hear a click from the engine compartment. This has happened before and I checked the relay fuse and it was okay but then it mysteriously started. This time I did the same thing and...


That would be your starter. More than likely the bushings went bad. The click is the gear from the starter popping out to crank the engine, but ther is not enough power to turn it. If it is a real hard click. Then it is probably starter. If it is very faint it could be a battery or solenoid problem. The solenoid is located attached to the starter. Since you have to remove starter to replace solenoid, I would take it to the parts store and have it tested so you know for sure before you buy unneeded parts

Volvo 2.0 S40cd 1996 . Battery not flat but won't start , ignition lights flashing , engine won't turn over . Lights ok and central locking ok . tried to jump start from another vehicle but no effect .


hi, the problem you are having sounds like the starter motor has packed up if when you turn the key you get nothing or you might even hear a faint click, if you open the bonnet then get someone to turn the key you might hear a faint click coming from the starter motor. This click indicates the starter motor needs replacing.

you could try hitting the starter motor with a hammer give it a few good hard hits this might get the starter motor working for a while if not then it needs replacing at once if it works then this isnt a permanent fix so be warned.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

When I turn the ignition, the dashboard lights up but the car will not start (the motor does not sound to be turning over)


hi, if when you turn the key nothing happens or you just hear a faint clicking sound then this indicates that the starter motor needs replacing.

If you open the bonnet and get someone to turn the key to start the car you might hear a clicking sound coming from the starter motor if you hear this then this indicates the starter motor needs replacing, if on the other hand you hear nothing at all then you need to check all the wires going to the starter.
Also check the earth wires coming from the battery check they are all connected where they earth out on the body of the car and where it connects to the engine.

You could also try giving the starter motor a few hard hits with a hammer this usually gets it working for a few times.
Also if you car is manual gear box then put it in say 2nd gear then get someone to push the car slightly so that you are turning the engine that way then try starting using the key this also sometimes get the starter working be be warned this isnt permanent fix so get the starter changed sooner rather than later ok

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
