I have worked on cars for 40 so mont years, on the older cars you could take the terminal off with the engine on, but not these newer ones, especially with all the sensors these new cars have. I'm not 100% sure, but have the computor checked in the car, 10 to 1 something blew.

1998 chevrolet silverado won't start not battery


What is the vehicle doing? Does it make a clicking sound when you turn it over? Or is it just dead? I assume you tried a boost.

Could be many different things. (Starter, Cables, Electrical, Computer).

Need more info on what happens when you put the key in and turn the switch.

stop the car and turn it off and don't forget to remove the key. the open the hood and find the battery. Then remove the negative battery terminal connector completely from the battery. with the battery disconnected turn on you headlamps as you would for night time driving. Wait an half an hour so all the current drains out the the electrical system. after the half hour TURN OFF THE HEADLAMPS BEFORE RECONNECTING THE BATTERY! Next reconnect the negative battery terminal connector back on the negative battery terminal don't forget to tighten it down. Put the key in the ignition turn the computer on to on BUT wait 5 seconds before actually starting the car, then start the car as normal and drive the car at least 25 miles 10 city 15 highway so the car can relearn all it functions again **Note first time start the car my be rough due that it need to relearn if it is acting rough apron start up let it idle for a bit before driving so it can calm down**

Hey I have a 91 cb lancer I turn the key to on then to start and all I hear is a click why won't it start what could be the problem


When you turn the key to the "on" position, see if the panel lights come on and try honking the horn too, if everything works it means the battery is fine.

Now, turn the key to start the engine. Does the engine just give out a click? If so, the battery terminals may be loose. Tighten the terminals leading to the battery posts with the correct tools and try turning the key once again.

Hi,
There two possible cause of that problem. Though you failed to tell us if you hear some clicking sound when you try to crank the engine.
The first one would be inadequate supply of ground/negative ( - ) from your battery to the engine where the starter is connected or placed at. Check the grounding connection and terminal from the battery to the engine, clean up the engine ground connection or add additional bigger diameter of wire to the grounding of the engine.


Second will be the worn contact points in the ignition key cylinder base. there is a contact points at the end of that key cylinder, where contactor touch each other when you turn the key. The remedy will be to open and remove the ignition key cylinder, check the contactors, and replace if there is a burnt wire or contact point.
Your local garage mechanic can repair that easily.

Hope that helps you.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

We have to assume the battery is usable, if not, anything else doesn't help. A couple of possibilities- First, get a simple, cheap device that uses a 9V battery and the car's cigarette lighter to prevent losing anti-theft codes. Once this is plugged in, remove the negative battery cable first, then the positive. CLEAN the battery connectors and terminals. Try to start the engine. If it still does the same thing, remove the negative battery cable again and follow it to its next connection and clean that point. While it is off, remove the other end of the positive cable which goes to the starter terminal and clean both points.
While under the hood, look for the cable connecting the engine block to the body of the car and clean both ends of that cable.
If the problem is still there, it can be related to one of these; the ignition switch, the starter solenoid or a corroded fuse connection. The starter is not protected by a fuse but the solenoid may be.
Good luck-

That your key wouldn't come out may have been strictly a mechanical problem with the lock and this can happen if there is too much torque on the steering wheel when parked for the steering lock to release the key.
The draining of the battery can be caused by a failed diode in the alternator. Radio Shack and auto parts stores will have Chinese digital multimeters available for under $20 US and nearly all (check them though) will have a separate jack marked for 10A (amperes) and this can be inserted at the negative battery terminal with one (black) probe, the second probe (red) attached to the removed battery clamp to see if current is flowing with the car turned completely off.
If you find more than 0.1 amperes flowing (it will read that on the meter) you have something drawing current when the car is off. DO NOT turn on the engine or any any lights since this could fry the meter if it is still connected as described since this range never has any fuse protection.

My 98 pontiac grand am wont turn over it makes 1 click thats it .is my starter bad ?and where is the stater on the car


The problem doesn't need to be the starter; the first thing you should eliminate is the chance that the problem is only poor contact at the battery terminals, the point where the negative cable is attached (either body sheet metal or engine block) and the starter terminal itself.
You can buy a tool for cleaning battery terminals at any auto parts store or, if the battery has side terminals, use any wire brush. - Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery first. - Then remove the positive terminal. - Clean all parts throughly. - Reattach them. - Try starting the engine.
If it doesn't start; - Disconnect the negative terminal again. - From under the car, locate the starter; it will be at the junction of the engine and transmission and it will have one end obviously butted against the transmission housing. - Remove the heavy cable from the starter and clean the cable end and the starter terminal. - Reattach the cable to the starter. - Reattach the negative battery terminal. - Try starting the engine.
If it still doesn't start, it may still be only a drained battery so find someone to 'jump' your battery and try to start the engine again. If it still doesn't start, then the starter could be bad.
I've had pretty good luck with rebuilt starters and these will cost far less than new.

If your here just one click when you turn the key to start then i suspect you have a starter going bad.If you heard several clicks while turning the key over once then that would be a weak battery.:)
