Bad neutral safety switch, starter relay, starter fuse or bad ignition switch. You will have to check each of those things to find what's keeping the current from reaching the starter, when you try cranking.

I've had a similar problem to the above and although I'm not sure what causes the problem, I just depress the brake, put it in neutral and start it right up.

SOURCE: My 1995 grand jeep cherokee won't start but It

alarm systems on these vehicles will normally have a start then stall condition. then a lockout. if it doesnt start at all I would first suspect fuel problem. if when u turn your key on listen to fuel filler neck to see if u can hear pump run for 2-3 sec. if u can hear it run you may have a crank sensor or cam sensor failure. those 2 control spark and your engine will not fire unless both inputs are supplied.

SOURCE: 2001 jeep grand cherokee won't start.

Your dealership can read the codes entered into your car's computer every time it malfunctions. Same problem as yours, however, also gets worse, back up lights won't work, sticks in park (in the gas stationing) (very embarrassing), will only run with foot on gas, etc. It was the "neutral safety switch". $500 fix but runs and starts perfectly all the time.

2002 Mazda Millenia no crank no start cranks by stater not key no fire to plugs or fuel pump


Could have faulty starter relay that provides crank signal voltage to starter when key is turned to start. Assume the no voltage to plugs or fuel pump performed when jumping the starter directly at the starter. Was the key turned to run position? Needs to be or no power to rest of system.

Remote works for everything but vehicle will not start


Does it try to crank, or is there no response when you turn the key?

If it tries to crank but can't turn over it is probably the battery, and might be the starter. If it is close to cranking, make sure the headlights and air conditioning are off when you try to start it. If the battery is dead you can get a jump or take it to an auto parts store to have it charged, most will do it free (autozone for one). If the car still won't start after getting a jump or a new battery, it is likely the starter.

If there is no response at all when you turn the key, I'm not sure. Check the fuses. Maybe the fuse or relay going to the starter is blown. Maybe there is some advanced security feature like an RFID key that has failed.

Turn key get nothing jump starter and sylenoid just spins


i cant dope out that symptoms.

does it crank or not. be clear there.

no car starts (but my 6sp) if it dont crank.

on A/T cars cranking is a first thing. so does it.?

Solenoids do not spin, the stroke only , it a linear motion.

the Sol. moves the pinion and the main contactor switch only.



my guess is the Starter spins and the crank don\'t spin,

you hear the starter motor spin up, it sings. like bird.

that means the starter /solenoid are bad. (crude)

if the battery is good and or jumper starting off a running car.



It can just be a dirty starter pinion, clean it , repeat.

fixed many for this. i have.



battery cable lugs clean, and good. no green rust.

bad cable usually just make a loud THUNK sound. no spin.

Suzuki Vitara no power to starter, every thing else electrical works.


2000 VIT (which engine, 1.6L 2.0L?) what transmission, A/T or M/T
auto or stick?
chip, what chip.>??? there is no starter chip
the NO Crank this is called.
did use jumper cable jump , off a running good car? yet.
this is the #1 first check.
(starter motor work now? yes, bad battery or simply discharged)
jumper starts, dead? that means we need to do test 2.
we hot wire the starter, motor solenoid.
jump tiny wire to big lug there.
it cranks fast, (wont start, keys are in pocket for safety) yes? good
no crank hot wired is a bad starter or seized engine. (turn engine by hand?)
yes, cranks hot wired.
that means the KEY line is dead. (bad PRNDL or bad Clutch switch)
if input to above switch is bad the ignition key switch is bad.
some VIt have an immoblizer. so the light for it must not glow. if opted.
see the tricks section !!!

the below shows all possible test. and all ways to fail and how to find it.

No start, no crank


If the starter won't engage, you can't crank the engine. You would only hear the starter operating freely. The replacement starter may have to be shimmed to fully engage the ring gear. Also, did you verify that the ring gear is OK?

Why won't my 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara start?


ill answer for NO ELECTRICAL POWER :
sure and is easy with any DMM meter, got one? any $20 DMM.
my guess;1
engine will not crank
dash lamps out.
head lights out. dead.
post systems of electrical system , all parts that work and those that dont work, and problem is easy.
cleaned battery terminals.
tried borrowed battery that reads, 12.6vdc ? (charged is 12.6)
2012 that is in warranty car.... ?
my guess on 2012
jumping a car, that is battery jump starting.
a battery can short, and no jump start on earth will start shorted battery in car. but does lay down some big sparks, or burns up cheap walmart cables.
if the car will not crank, say just that, my starter motor will not crank
jump started from live running other car.
if true then make sure headlights work , if they dont work fix that first.
HL must always work, even keys in pocket.
best is to put a fully charged battery in the car, jump starting can cause
surges that can damage sensitive electronic$$$, do jumps as a desperate measure,
with a charged battery,
1: Head lights work, no fix that , use voltmeter
2: cranks robustly.
no , wiggle shifter lever, (on A/T cars the park switch blocks cranking) On M/T the clutch blocks cranking.
with any dMM
measure battery voltage before crank and during.
12.6v good. reseted.
cranking.
0 to 10v bad (weak battery or shorted starter motor)
11 and above good. and must crank, if not , starter is bad.
to prove starter is bad, check voltage at starter solenoid coil wire lug.
it must be at 11v cranking , below 8v it chatters, and fails.
if at 0v cranking this lug that means the Key start line is failing.
A/T switch not closes, or bad ignition switch.

Car won't start without a jump but battery okay


wont crank or wont start.??
no car starts , if it cant crank. (unless push starter (M/T magic)
that is not a trans sensor its the PRN switch.
ill answer for, wont CRANK !
it wont crank even with a good battery (charged) or jump started.
1: bad start
2: bad wires to same.
so hot wire the starter small wire, the key start line is tiny.
cranks. , starter good, no crank starter bad or cables bad.
if it cranks hot wired, then the key line is dead.
easy, huh?

2004 chevy tahoe won't turnover or start by being jumped


The ignition start circuit is the path from the ignition key in cranking mode to the solenoid on the starter. The path travels through a starter relay and a neutral safety switch before it reaches the starter.
This must be the circuit not working on your car.Make sure battery and starter connections are tight.Check for power at the starter solenoid terminal with a testlight when someone turns key to crank. If you have power there, they sold you a defective starter. If you have no power there then it could be the relay or the neutral safety switch.

My '97 Geo Metro LSi will not start. When I turn the ignition key on the buzzer, idiot lights, lights, horn, etc., everything electrical will work. If I turn ignition key to start, there is absolutely no...


It could be the starter, test the small wire going to the starter, it should have power when turning the key to start/crank. If it does, and the starter will not crank the engine, whack it with a hammer, if it then starts, replace the starter. If there is no power to the starter, then it could be the ignition switch, or the neutral switch, or a fuse/link blown.
