Are you saying the engine will not crank, or not start ?
If it won't crank, have you had the battery tested ? Is it draining power overnight ?

starter wont click because there's not enough "juice" to turn it over. this isnt because of the battery as you have just replaced it. it is due to a bad alternator recharging the battery as you drive. if it were only a fuse it would be the solenoid in the starter. but if it had started after you installed the battery then its not the solenoid. solution: buy a refurbished alternator and

It will start when cold, and after driving and then parking, the starter will not turn over? Replace your starter/solenoid.

WARNING: WHEN SERVICING THE STARTER MOTOR (11002) OR PERFORMING OTHER ENGINE COMPARTMENT WORK NEAR THE STARTER MOTOR (11001) , BE AWARE THAT THE HEAVY GAUGE BATTERY INPUT LEAD AT THE STARTER SOLENOID (11390) IS "ELECTRICALLY HOT" AT ALL TIMES. BE SURE TO DISCONNECT BATTERY GROUND CABLE (14301) BEFORE SERVICING STARTER MOTOR .

2.0L Engine Starter Removal

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Remove engine intake air resonator and air box.
  3. Disconnect the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor and mass air flow (MAF) sensor.
  4. Remove three starter motor retaining bolts and ground wire.
  5. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  6. Remove integral connector retaining nuts and wires from starter solenoid.
  7. Disconnect the knock sensor.
  8. Remove the axle shaft bearing bracket bolts and position the bracket aside.
  9. Remove the starter motor.
Installation
NOTE: When installing lower starter motor retaining bolts, be sure to install ground cable.
  1. Position starter motor to transaxle and loosely install lower retaining bolt.
  2. Install axle shaft bearing bracket. Tighten to 21 Nm (15 lb-ft).
  3. Connect knock sensor.
  4. Install integral connector retaining nuts. Tighten B-terminal retaining nut to 11 Nm (97 lb-in). Tighten S-terminal retaining nut to 5 Nm (44 lb-in).
  5. Lower vehicle to floor.
  6. Install starter motor retaining bolts and ground wire. Tighten to 20 Nm (15 lb-ft).
  7. Install engine intake air resonator and air box.
  8. Connect the IAT and MAF.
  9. Connect battery ground cable.
2.5L Engine Starter Removal
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the idle air control (IAC) valve hose from the intake manifold.
  3. Remove the IAC valve hose locator from the upper radiator hose.
  4. Remove the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) hoses from the air cleanter outlet tube.
  5. Disconnect the intake air temperature (IAT) and mass air flow (MAF) sensor electrical connectors.
  6. Disconnect the air cleaner inlet tube from the air cleaner housing and the outlet tube from the throttle body.
  7. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
  8. Remove the air cleaner housing support bracket.
  9. CAUTION: Do not carry an open flame of any type when working on or near an open fuel system. The fuel system remains under pressure for long periods of time after engine shutdown. The fuel pressure must be relieved before performing any service to the fuel system.
  10. Remove the protective service valve cap and connect the Multiport Fuel Injection (MFI) Fuel Pressure Gauge T80L-9974-B to the fuel pressure service valve, located on the fuel injector rail. Slowly open the valve and relieve the fuel system pressure. Remove the gauge and install the protective service valve cap.
  11. Remove the safety clips and disconnect the fuel line couplings using disconnect tools D87L-9280-A (for 3/8-inch lines) and D87L-9280-B (for 1/2 inch lines). Install protective caps and position the fuel lines out of the way.
  12. Remove the transaxle selector cable bracket retaining bolts and position the bracket (with cable attached) aside.
  13. Disconnect the starter motor solenoid electrical connectors. Secure the battery cable harness and the heater hoses aside.
  14. If equipped, remove the starter motor support bracket.
  15. Remove the starter motor.
Installation
  1. Install the starter motor. Tighten the bolts to 25 Nm (18 lb-ft).
  2. If equipped, install the starter motor support bracket. Tighten the retaining bolt to 25 Nm (18 lb-ft). Tighten the retaining nuts to 17 Nm (13 lb-ft).
  3. Connect the positive battery cable and solenoid harness to the starter motor solenoid. Tighten the battery cable retaining nut to 12 Nm (9 lb-ft). Tighten the solenoid terminal retaining nut to 5 Nm (44 lb-in).
  4. Install the transaxle selector cable bracket. Tighten the bolts to 20 Nm (15 lb-in).
  5. NOTE: Inspect all O-ring seals and garter springs for damage, prior to assembly. If either O-ring is damaged, both O-rings must be replaced. Replace the O-rings or garter springs only with the appropriate replacement parts. Lubricate the O-rings with clean engine oil, prior to assembly.
  6. Remove the protective caps and connect the fuel line couplings. Install the safety clips.
  7. Install the air cleaner housing support bracket. Tighten the bolts to 25 Nm (18 lb-ft).
  8. Connect the air cleaner housing to the air cleaner inlet tube and the outlet tube to the throttle body. Install the PCV hoses to the air cleaner outlet tube. Connect the IAC valve hose to the intake manifold and securely tighten the retaining clamp. Install the IAC valve hose locator to the upper radiator hose. Connect the IAT and MAF sensor electrical connectors.
  9. NOTE: When the battery is disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the vehicle relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 16 km (10 mi) or more to relearn the strategy.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.

Check for spark and fuel. When you turn the key on you should hear the fuel pump in the tank for a few seconds till the pressure builds up. When you crank the engine there should be spark at the plugs.

First have your battery load tested, and your alternator checked for proper charging amperage. If that is ok then you have what is called a parasitic drain that is draining your battery overnight. A parasitic drain test will need to be ran and repairs made.

Good luck. i hope this helps.

My car won't start even after av changed the starter


are the cables and battery posts ok! jump start to see if you get enough power to turn starter over. if it starts, then it may be a bad battery. if car is running and at battery you should have at least 13.6 to 14.2 if alternator is ok. another test is to have car off, turn on headlights with meter on battery posts, if the voltage drops way down. its the battery thats bad. good-day !

Car won't stay running after sits overnight and runs good after you do get it started


In the morning, turn key to on position for 5 seconds. Do not crank.Then turn off for 5 seconds. Repeat this about 5 times. Then try to start. If engine starts right up, the fuel pump check valve is bad. Meaning all fuel in fuel line is returning to the tank when car sits overnight. The only fix is to replace fuel pump. If that doesn't work, replace coolant temp. sensor for the computer. About a 12.00 part.

Most likely the battery. Most auto parts stores will check it for free with the hopes that you will buy your replacement from them.

My gran vitara has trouble starting in the morning, when it has been sat all night, then the rest of the day it is fine, does it need clean filters??or is the battery wearing out?or any other ideas you can...


You have a defective battery. Overnight, it leaks off power. In the morning when you start it by jump starting (or a push) and it runs, the alternator will charge it, making it good the rest of the day. Then again the power will be drained overnight due to the shorted battery components.
