Battery is good, connections are good. Dashlights turn on till ignition is engaged then nothing. Next turn of the ignition gets no lights. Would a bad starter cause this?

No you have a bad connection somewhere causing the problem. clean and tighten the battery terminals and make sure they are tight as they would cause what is going on with your vehicle

Do your head lights come on? If not check your battery connections. If they do then go to the starter and check all connections there. Let me know how you do with this and let me know if thia=s helped or if you need further assistance. Thanks

Check all battery connections for corossion, battery to motor and battery to body ground for corossion under mounting bolts. Also check motor to body ground strap. Also check battery wire and all otherwires on starter solonoid. Check condition of battery, even if the dashboard lights up your battery can not have enough juice to turn car over to start.

It could be that your ignition pass key is not working properly. The computer in the vehicle is set to start the car only if the proper resistance is measured on the ignition key. If you have several sets of keys for that car, try the other keys. This is not a common fault, but never the less, it is a possibility.

Engaging the Starter


Check to make sure that when you turn on ignition switch the solenoid is receiving power to engage the pinion gear and feed power to the starter motor. It is new so I suspect it is not receiving juice. U may have some bad connection causing the intermittent issue. PIA.
