2002 chevy blazer wont start when temperature falls below 20, when I turn the key on I can hear the selenoid cliking but the starter wont turn over head lights dont dim sometimes after trying a few times...


Start by cleaning the battery terminals with baking soda. Start with the negative, then positive. Then reconnect the positive and then negative. If you can remove the battery vent caps check for low acid level. Fill with distilled water if low.

Wont turn over not a fuel problem wat do you think it is?


try tapping the casing of the starter and then try it, if that works you need to replace or rebuild yur starter. if there is a clicking noise when you try to crank it its more than likely your selenoid on your starter gone bad. just my opinion happened to my blazer as well.

I have a 2003 Galant GTZ 3.0L . batery is good and all the lights work. when I try to start the car all I hear is single click. the car does not start. I cleaned the batery cables and still the same, no...


if you've tested your battery and know you have a good connection at the terminals that one click sound is a bad starter. you may wish to attempt to tap on it while cranking to try to get it to start. if you do crawl under your car use jack stands to hold the car in the air. never leave a losd on the jack. safety first. if this was helpful please leave positive rating.

Starter won't kick in, replaced starter but still intermittent. Is there a starter relay between the ignition and starter?


you need what is called a starter selenoid. This acts like a relay to the starter. You can check your start for free at any parts store. If it checks out, buy the selenoid. The selinoid is the unit that one of you battery connections go to

97 blazer was stuck and turned off in 1st gear. Now the vehicle has been moved but will not move out of first gear so it can't be started. Tried rocking. Was stuck in little snow but not enough to get...


I would not try to start it if it is in first gear!!! I would check the shifter level on the transmission. May be a linkage or shifter cable problem.

Changing the starter - tough job or easy


the way it works is there is a starter selenoid that when you turn ur key gives the selenoid power which makes the starter gear kick out to catch ur flex plate which turns the engine over it sounds like the drive gear on the starter is not kicking out as far as fixing it it is a farly simple job a few bolts and wires

1999 Chevy Blazer 4WD wont start


Sounds like the bendix is stuck in the starter. When this happens, the starter energizes and turns, but the gear does not kick out to make contact with the flywheel. Have someone tap on the starter while cranking the engine.
