Is the fuel pump turning on? turn the key without starting and listen for noise coming from the back of the car it will come on for a couple of seconds and stop. if you don't hear anything are you getting voltage to fuel pump relay? located under the hood in the black fuse box between the battery and radiator, there is a yellow 20 amp PCM fuse check and make sure it is not blown. grab the owners manual fuse relay section, locate the PCM and Fuel Pump relays, ( they are interchangeable) They are two small black relays, with help of another person, check that the relay are clicking by turning the key on and off and placing a finger on the relays, if they are clicking. you will need a test light or multimeter to check for the voltage at the relays, remove the relays and there should be voltage on one of the slot in the fuse box where the relay was, if there is voltage there replace or swap the relays first if the engine doesn't start and you don't hear anything in the back of the car fuel pump running for a couple of seconds then you will have to drop the tank and replace the fuel pump.

Ive never seen a car start up just fine after leaving the key on all night. I would try jumping it. If the voltage is too low it wont start.

Y will my nissan frontier pick up truck will not crank . My starter o's ok


How do you know the starters ok? They can be running fine, but then you go to turn it over and you hit the perfect dead spot in the starter. If it won't crank, then I'd check the battery, fuses, and you could also check the ignition key. Do the inside lights turn on? When you turn the car to the on position, does the dashboard light up and what not?

Starter issue on 1988 dodge w150


check the brown(small wire) to the starter soleniod to make sure it is not touching the large red wire.. if it is ok, than try removing the relay before connecting the battery.. if it still cranks, it may have an internal fault with the starter/solenoid. if it doesn't crank, than problem is with the ignition switch or a remote starter(if equipped)

I think that you have a defective starter solenoid, this the part that is mounted to the top of the starter.

2006 Chev Cobalt won't crank...no lights, no sounds nothing. When tried to get the key out it won't go past the ACC position? Any ideas on the problem?


Is the battery dead? Check your battery condition and connections. Check your starter fuse from there. Check the connection to the starter then progress to the ignition side of the concern

Does not turn over or try to crank. New starter & battery, electronics works


Can the motor be turned by the balancer bolt? do you have ignition lights? If got ignition lights & red hand (try this anyway) hold key in start position & hit dash upwards & forwards on left of steering colum if start = smartlock module problem.

2005 Mazda 3 won't start; when I turn the ignition the dashboard lights flicker and a loud clicking sound occurs


the battery is low on power. the lights will still light for a bit longer but your engine needs more cranking amps to turn it over. The clicking sound is your starter without enough power. Have someone help you jump the car. or if you have a manual transmission, get the car moving 5mph+ somehow (push or hill) and pop the clutch out with the keys in the ignition in the "on" position. your car will start right up. if your car regularly needs jumped you probably have a bad battery. if your car looses power while driving you have a bad alternator.

1992 Toyota Camry won't crank


Check the ground cable going from the battery to
alternator, then to chassis. Make sure there is no
rust at the chassis ground wire terminal, and that it
is very tight. The fusible link will be off the alternator
red power cable,usually, but not 100% on that car.
Good luck.
