If you don't have power on the small wire on the starter with the key switch in the start position, the neutral or clutch safety switch could be faulty.

    If you have the anti-theft system it could be that too. The system reads the chip in your key.

SOURCE: won't start not even click

I am pretty sure you have a bad solenoid on your starter. Sometimes if you tap on them while someone holds the key in start they will make contact and it will start. Best solution is replace solenoid. You can check it by having someone hold the key in start and measure the voltage from the small wire to ground, if it is bad you will have voltage but it will not even click. Hope that helps you.

SOURCE: My 1999 nissan altima won't start, no crank,not

If you look under the hood, there is a starter relay that might be the problem - but more common than that, - Do you have an alarm system of anykind? If so, It sounds alot like that is the problem, and they are notorious for causing "no start" problems as such - Unfortunatey, the wiring for these (even to just remove one) can be rather involved (as they often cut the starter wire to install an interrupt) so you may have to take it to an auto electric shop, or one that specializes in alarm systems - Also, dealers sometimes install special "electronic lot key systems" in all of their new cars, requiring that the "electronic key" must be present in the vehicle (along with the correct physical key) in order for it to start - I'd check for one of those systems as well - Hope that helps...

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Intrepid accessory/starter relay problem?

Accessory position is turning key towards he driver. Ignition on is away 1 and start is away2.

  • Turn on your headlights, do they work? If not, chk batt terminals
  • If they do, try to crank the engine noting what the headlights do. If they go out, Chk the batt ground cable. If they dim, your batt needs a charge. If they dim and then come back bright when you back off the starter, the starter is bad.
  • Chk for loose engine to body ground. That would affect the accessories. Good Luck, _Ned_

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee no electrical power at all with a new battery,cables,fittings,ignition relay fuse. Only clicked once when trying to start.dome lights and instrument clusters on, then nothing


Just to clarify...has the battery been inserted the right way round on polarity.check the main 30 amp fuse if this has blow then it is probable that the polarity is back to front.

98 ford ranger 4cyl 5 speed. When u turn the key to on position I get no warning lights on dash except battery light and seatbelt light. Nothing else.truck wont start. Dont even click.


Check the batter voltage first. If not that check fuse panel under hood for a 100 amp fuse check to see if the fuse is bad or if it has power. Also check fuseable link wire at starter to see if wire is still good. If it is bad, internal short possible on starter, take out and test it. Replace fusible link.

Briefly installed battery backwards. 2000 Ford Ranger. New Battery, new alternator, but alternator not charging battery. Truck starts on battery-new starter motor. Lights work, all electrical works


Is this the alternator that was in the vehicle when you hooked the battery up wrong? If so, you probably blew out the voltage regulator in the alternator.

1998 Ranger No crank no start.turn key I hear a click then nothing lights up until i disconncet battery.connect battery try again dash lights on radio on dome light on roll key to start click nothing?


Hey Ray sounds like starter selonoid look on fire wall it will have a cable coming from battery and on other side a cable going to starter , with the key on ,in netural use a jump wire to touch each of the cables (the one from the battery and the one going to starter) ,if it cranks and or starts that's your problem and its easy to change . if not sure of wiring take a photo of them .

My 2005 Polaris ranger 500 won.t start. have new battery and lights work good. fuel pump comes on, bit nothing when I turn key over


Find the starter relay, usually under the seat and see if it clicks on Start. If not check for separate fuse. If it does look at starter. If no fuse then suspect start relay or other connections. You may need auto electrician or good DIY friend to help. Check with the dealer?

2000 Ford Ranger battery died. Got jump started. Now won't start - nothing - click no hums, no nothing. And horn sounds very sad & sick. Already re-programmed the key, checked all fuses, fuel re-set toggle...


If the horn sounds sick then either one horn has stopped working or your battery is bad. To test a battery properly it needs to be tested under load to determine the internal resistance. If the internal resistance it too high the voltage drops rapidly when power is being used. The voltage should be at 14.4 volts or so when under load (eg headlights on etc) Of course when the starter is powered the voltage will drop alot. If the battery is perfect, and the battery cables are spotless then you must have some fuseable links melted. They would be along the cable leading from the positive side of the battery to the firewall.

Truck turns over and starts when I connect battery???? No key is even in the ignition.


Maybe the ignition is bad- or your starter solenoid stuck in engaged position?

1999 ford ranger wont start. no attempt to start no clicking etc. Replaced battery and still no attempt to start. Lights work etc. Battery was charged and tested at parts store and I was told the original...


Starter may be bad, or connection to the starter could be corroded or broken. There also may be a fuse, I'm not sure. Locate the starter and try running a jumper wire to it. Mini jumper cables will work. Hook those up to the battery and then run it to the starter. Ground it to a metal part and use the positive side to touch the power connector on the starter. IF the starter kicks, its a connection issue. If it doesnt, replace the starter.
