Question about 1999 Chrysler Concorde

1 Answer

Car wont start

The car will not start we thought it was the starter but we took it out and had it tested it was good, when we went to put it back in part of the clip was broke off, I think its the clip maybe you connect wire to not sure. We also bought a brand new battery, the car still will not start, it doesnt turn over at all , it seems like it is the starter thats why I was wondering if that clip has anything to do with it

    Yes the lights and all come on the horn works, and all the lights inside the car come on. Yes both the wires are hooked up and when you try to start the car it acts like it wants to start ya know that clicking noise where it wants to start but doesnt and it did actually almost turn over twice but it started smoking I think down by the starter,but there is a clip on the top of the starter where you clip a wire into half of the clip is broke off and also i think somebody may have put to much oil in it, my daughter did not put oil into it and the light came on and. I believe it started to overheat

Should've been two wires on the starter. One big one which is hot all the time, and another little one that is for the solenoid. If you don't have the little one hooked, it will not turn over. Do the lights and all come on?

    your next bet then is to see if you can turn the motor over by hand (wrench). Get a socket and a ratchet on the front crankshaft pulley bolt and try and turn the motor over. If you can't turn it with the ratchet, your motor is most likely locked up. If you can turn it over, the starter is most likely bad although it tested good out of the car.

New Battery/starter and still wont crank.

car wont crank or car wont start? I would say your battery cables are bad,, acid gets in from battery and erodes internal cable parts... need a Meter to check it out.. put the meter on battery while someone tries to start it, if the voltage drops from 13.5 to 10 then it is trying to turn over, I always have the new starters tester before I leave a store, they are remanufactured in Malaysa and they use old parts in most of them..

I have a 1996 Dodge grand Caravan 3.3L 6 clyder and i put a new fuel pump in it and it was starting with a little jumping when it runs. i let it sit over night til about 6 in the morning and about to go to...

It sounds like a starter to me, the starter does funny things, it will get to the point when even jumping it like you did wont work anymore, there is a dead spot in it, even jumping the van will make it start sometimes, this is a bad starter,Make sure your battery connections are clean and tight and connections on the starter are the same clean and tight and if so then replace the starter.i have had them removed and tested and the would run and test good but were bad, good day.

Turned key on,lights on ignition go like its aflat battery but not,lights go on ok,told it could be starter motor,took starter motor out an use battery to test it while it was starter out of...

Easier to test in the car. Put starter back in the car. First, please try to jump start the car. If it will jump and start, starter is OK. If it will not jump start, go to the starter with a screwdriver. Use the screwdriver to short the big red-wire terminal to the small terminal on the solenoid. Be very careful not to short the big red-wire terminal to anything else, or you will get a big spark. If the battery, starter, and solenoid are good, the car will crank. If it does not crank, try again while jumping the battery to another car. If it cranks, the battery is low or the terminals need to be cleaned and tightened. If you have more questions, please reply.

1991 jeep cherokee laredo won't start

you can test your signal wire to the starter by having someone turn the key to start while you put a test light on the signal wire at the stater.If there is no signal on the light then there is a problem with the sending wire from the ignition.
