1995 toyota tacoma wont turn over


Won't turn over as in nothing? Or won't fire? First place to start is the battery .Either charge this one up or take it out and go along to a parts place to have it charged and load tested.Once you know the battery is good you can go from there.Work your way,battery cables(clean them) make sure they are nice and tight,starter solenoid(you should hear a clicking sound),and finally down to the starter. good luck

My '99 saturn sl won't start. the battery has a charge, and the alternator is good, but it won't turn over.


Hi Vernon, There could be a number of different reasons why your vehicle is failing to start. The battery voltage could be dropping during start and become unable to engage the starter motor to turn the engine. You can check this by trying the key with the head lights switched on. If the lights become very dim, you'll need to check the battery, meaning clean the terminals and then try to start with a jump from another battery. If you achieve start up and it fails again the following morning, you will probably need to replace the battery. There could be a problem with the starter relay or a loose contact for the starter motor, most lik3ely the one connecting to the soliniod. It would be good to know some additional information, such as does a clicking sound come from the starter when engaged? Is there a perceptible drop in voltage output when the starter is engaged? does the enine turn at all? Try what I've suggested and if that does not solve the problem answer the questions and let me know anything else which you may think is relevant. Regards John

I have a 1989 GMC Sierra that won't start. It makes a clicking sound when key is turned. Is it the starter? and what does the starter look like?


well the first thing to do is check the voltage at battery, if battery is bad it will make a clicking sound when trying to start vehicle. the voltage at battery should be at least 12.6 volts all things off. with it running at battery should be at least 14.2-14.7 if alternator is ok! if all checks out to be ok, then its either a bad solinoid on starter or the starter itself. good-day ! any auto store will check the voltage for free. just tell them you want to check battery and alt, output.

I have a 1995 Buick Century and it won't crank. When I turn the key the lights come on but it makes no sound as if its trying to turn over. Do you think something may have become loose if so where do I...


1st check your battery cables to make sure that they are not corroded with acid, if they are , then clean them with a solution of baking soda and water, take a brush and scrub them, then rinse them of, and make sure they are tight, if it still doesn't start, then have someone check your battery out to see if it has a dead cell in it, if the battery checks out ok, then i would suspect the starter.

Car has power but will not start connections are tight i get a click and then it goes out but will not start


have your hood on and have someone check to see if your starter is making a clicking sound at all most likely its the starter if its not clicking means its bad and needs to be replaced. I had to do that on my car too when my starter totally stopped working on me. Check this first. when the starter clicks means its ingaging the engine.

TURNING KEY TO START 2004 SATURN VUE. MUST TRY MULTIPLE TIMES IN ORDER FOR THE VEHICLE TO START. REPLACED THE BATTERY STILL HAVE PROBLEM. WHEN TAKEN TO AUTO REPAIR SHOP THEY CANNOT FIND PROBLEM..NEED HELP


you may have a bad starter relay, or bad starter colenoid, best solution, have starter relay checked, if good, replace starter, does it click when you try to start?but won't? clicking indicates bad battery connections, bad starter colenoid, or simply bad starter. sometimes it's better to replace the whole starter, considering how much it costs to check all the above. suggest that you have battery checked for free at autozone or advance automotive for free. if battery checks good, replace starter. if you accept my solution and it works, let me know via fixya.com and thank you for choosing fixya.com

1997 SL1 Saturn will not turn. lights air signals work. car will not start.starter was checked it was good, the battery was checked it was good as well.


Check the continuity of your power cables leading from the battery to the starter as well as the lines from the ignition switch. You could have a faulty connection or a bad switch.
