If you are saying the starter clicks but the engine will not crank, and you know for a fact the starter and battery are ok, the engine may be locked up.
Can you turn the crank with a wrench on the alternator pulley ?

SOURCE: my 1996 grand am wont start

if the car doesnt make a sound when trying to start it. it can be a possibility it is your alternador. the reason why it didnt shut off on you while you were driving was you were most likely driving off of your battery and not the alternador. I have the same exact car and i been thru hell and back and then back to hell with it. I had a problem where my alternador wasnt charging the battery so after driving for about 30 mins the car shut off. I got a new alternador and my battery light came on. i was able to drive it. (i also had a brand new battery). I took it to a shop to see what was wrong and the alternador wasnt charging up the battery, So in other words i was using the battery to drive. And if you are driving using the power of your batter only, it is very important you do not use anything that would help use it, such as radio, windsheild wipers or even your head lights (and i know yours come on automatically), if ur windows are powered used, try not to keep rolling them up or down. and it is very possible to drive off of the battery if you are not using any other power used things in the car. And if its not your alternador than most def its an electric problem (i had one of those too)

This is likely caused by a burned out alternator, charge the battery, verify it will hold a charge and replace the alternator.

If you just replaced the starter we can assume the starter is not your problem,be sure your cables are clean and tight from the battery to the starter. If they are clean and tight than check the starter relay. check to be sure the ground is clean and tight as well.

Toyota Camry wont start 1994 doesnt click over


This could be -

- dying battery. The most common cause. You might hear a click from the starter solenoid, or not, but no cranking.

- worn starter solenoid contacts. Here the battery is good, but no cranking.

- bad ground from the battery to the engine. Clean the terminals at both ends of this cable.

- defective starter or solenoid. Replace rather than repair, it is just as cheap.

If you can, air dry the complete engine compartment where you used water to clean it. Possibly a few electrical connectors to the ignition system are wet. If you can disconnect these and air dry them, it may help. If you have not performed any type of maintenance like tune up, good time to do so.

pull the spark plugs and see if water comes out of the cylinders. Disconnect the battery and turn it over by hand with the spark plugs removed.

1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass wont start


to start , make sure the battery is fully charged or try to jump start it. If the starter does not work after jump starting, check the wiring to the starter. be careful to label the wires where they go. Check all grounds. try to crank to engine. If it clicks and still does not turn or clicks only one or at all. Replace the starter.
