Check all wires running from the batt to the starter motor. if the wires are tight and fitting quite well, its the starter itself. remove it and test for voltage and motor function at your local auto parts shop.

Bad starter solenoid most likely. If you can even see the starter (which I doubt) might try tapping it hard with a broom handle which could jiggle the parts in the solenoid and make it start. Otherwise, tow it and replace the starter and solenoid as one part.

Loud speaker static when the car is off. It drained that battery. I tried pulling the radio fuse but it was still making the noise. I had to disconnect the battery to get it to stop. Any ideas?


I GUESS that the speakers are driven by an after market amplifier. An amplifier needs to be connected to a power source that is only on when the radio is on, through a relay.

So I GUESS that:
  1. The wiring is incorrect. Or
  2. If is has a relay, the relay is stuck.

Truck wont start, interior lights flash


Check your battery terminals , are they clean and tight ? Next try to jump start your car. It may be that you have a bad battery.

try removing the spark plugs to ensure that you do not have a hydraulic lock in a combustion chamber. This happens when a crack or faulty head gasket allows water into the chamber and when the piston comes up it is prevented from going over the top of the stroke. Removing the plugs allows the water to come out and the engine to spin.

1st make sure your connections at battery and starter are clean and tight. Next pull the battery out and have a parts store check it's condition. Even though the lights and radio work, it may be too weak to crank the engine over. If the battery checks out ok, then you are probably correct, it's the starter. Check in this order though, so you don't waste $ on parts you don't need. You don't want to pull the starter out to find it was a weak battery, or a bad connection (dirty or loose connection would prevent jump start from working.)

Only makes a clicking noise and wont start


First, remove the battery terminals and clean them. Check that the ground wire on the block is tight and clean and the wire at the starter is also good. If you have 12v at the main starter cable and12v at the smaller (trigger) wire next to it with the key turned to the "start" position, it's likely the starter is bad (providing you can turn the engine by hand with key switch off) Make sure that the battery has 12v before starting diagnosis...radio etc. draw far less than the starter does. Even if relatively new, if the charging system isn't working, it will draw down the battery in less than an hour while driving..

Car wont start, lights will come on and radio and windows. doesn't appear to be battery, but it also wont jump off either. is this the starter. makes no noise what so ever when you turnt he key


This exact same thing happened to me, it can be a number of problems. You might not have enough battery charge to get the car going since the fuel pump in this car is electronic, my car did not start but when i took it to a mechanic thinking the battery was perfect because lights and all were on they jump started it and it started then immediately died, i also had a choke pull off failure, leaks in my carburetor, and the float was to heavy causing flooding. 185 dollars later and a rebuilt carburetor my car had a smooth idle and turned on immediately after turning ignition. but then to find out my alternator was bad hence the battery only having enough power for the radio and lights.so in short try jumping the car even though the battery seems good, check your carb or get it checked by a mechanic, then check if your alternator is ok. if i waited for two days without attempting to start car then trying it would start if i held the ignition and pushed the gas pedal down until it started. (see if thats the case for you) my guess is you carb, battery, and alternator.
