Re: could it be wires crossing? please advise this lady
Hi there. You may have a poor connection between the battery and the cables. Simply cleaning the connectors attached to the battery and the battery posts may solve your problem. To do this yourself you will need a adjustable wrench and some emery cloth. Loosen the bolt and wiggle the cable clamp off of the battery. THen clean the post the inside of the clamp up real well with the emery cloth. Finally reconnect and tighten down the bolt.

It is the starter. You can cross a screwdriver across the solenoid to start it and drive....just "clack" it. It'll spark but you will get it to start running. Cross the screwdriver across the solenoid posts and tocuh the frame or engine....it'll start....just have the key in the "on: position.
if it turns over from below,then its in the ignition switch and this also feeds power to the e.c.m. to make the engine fire so you either have a bad switch contact or the hot 12 volt wire to the ignition switch
Check that the small wire going onto the starter solenoid has a good contact. Next time it doesn't start, test this wire for power while the key is on Start. If it has power when you test it then, I'd suspect dodgy starter solenoid.
to check tranny fluid,car has to run on park for couple mins,then find the dip take it out wipe but back in and check will car running,then the starting problem sounds like your crank sensor is bad replace that if ,still no luck then its timing belt of a tooth or so.if my info was of help please leave a comment,vote,note.thankyou
It could be many things, of course the most common is the battery, and you say that is good. Even when you tryed boosting, i assume?
If it's not the battery, it might not be all the way in park. I have even heard of people rocking the vehicle back and forth in park to make it go all the way in to park, and start.
Next thing it could be is broken , loose or disconnected wires in the starting circuit. Inspect all wires at the battery , starter solenoid, and ignition switch.
Still nothing. Faulty starter solenoid.
Starter motor pinion jammed in your ring gear.
Let me know how you make out. Good luck.
