First thing i would do is this take a test light put it on the small wire on starter and have someone turn the key to start, it should light up bright, (do this when it does not want to start like you discribed) if it does i would say its starter selanoid, if its a weak light, than your problem is in that wire between starter switch and selanoid. also chk.that small wire and see if it has a fuseable link. also chk. the main post on starter, they been known to come loose and it will do what you discribed. it will be the inside nut on main post behind positive cable the one that tightens up to selanoid.if its loose thats your problem, be carefull it tightens to plastic on selanoid.

Having starting 1998 chevy lumina when turning the key,not a thing happens.check all the fuses ok.what now


no Crank ???? try to put it in netural. possible safty switch, if no crank you will need to check the crank wire on the starter, ( The Small Wire) with a 12 volt test light, when you turn the key you should have a light. if so the starter Sol Assy has failed.... Hope this helps

2001 dodge stratus want crank


It could be But my guess is it is the safety netural switch could even be a starter you can test it but you need jumper wires with aligator clips, you can try turning on the lights and turn the key switch over and if the lights dim slightly then it means it is making contact and pulling volatage but not starting, if the lights don't dim slightly then it could be the safety netural switch. If you can work with jumper wires and a couple safety stands I can help you test it.

I wont even attempt to start the starter is new battery is new and netural safty switch is new


find the problem before you replace any other parts not needed. is the anti-theft light flashing? do the warning lights come on when you turn the key on. headlights come on bright? can you take a wire and connect the BIG terminal to the little terminal on the starter and "bypass" the rest of the car? when you do this, the engine should spin over, if the key is on, the engine should crank over and run.. If bypassing works, you need to find out why there is no power to the purple wire when trying to start. be sure there is power TO the neutral switch, if not, check the ign switch. find the wire at the base of the steering column........ dont replace any more parts untill you find the problem.

Lost alarm remote and jeep wont start


Is this a factory alarm, or after market? If its a factory alarm you can disarm the sytem using the key, insert into the door and turn the key so the door unlocks, this will disable the alarm.

If it's an aftermarket installed by a stereo shop, there should be a valet switch under the dash or somewhere, put the key in the ignition, turn forward and flip the dip switch in the other direction. If not, then you will need to go under the dash, find the alarm box and pull the plug out.
