Check your starter relay. if the starter passed the test at the shop check to see if you are getting signal to your solenoid on the starter it shoul be the little post when you turn the key to the crank position, check to see if you have power at the big post which comes from your battery, check your grounds. check your fuses see if you have a crank fuse or an ignition fuse.

Check the starter motor. Many times they go on there own with no sign, and having someone crank it while using something to tap it often helps it turn over.

My 2001 Honda Accords starter wont turn over lights on but intermittent starts

If the engine will not crank but the lights work, the problem can be something between the key switch and the starter, including the neutral safety switch (a/t) or the starter solenoid on the starter.

Does the starter for 98 buick regal custom have a in line fuse and how do i locate it my car wont start it wont even turn over the battery has a full charge and i had the starter tested it passed so the...

There is no inline fuse but there are a couple of things you can check.

One check for power on the large cable at the starter. There should be 12 volts all the time.

Check for power on the small purple wire at the starter. There should be power any time the key is in the crank position.

Let me know which is missing and I'll be happy to help you further figure it out.

sounds like a starter problem. You need to have an experienced mechanic evaluate your car. You may have an electrical problem that is depriving battery power to the starter. Or it simply may be a bad starter. Once again you need to have a mechanic who is knowledgable with electrical diagnosis evaluate your cars system. hope this helps.

I would suspect the starter if the battery passes a load test - even though the starter turns over it may have such a high resistance that it cannot turn fast enough. The starter can be tested at your local auto parts store but you'll need to remove it first. If it's one of the expensive types you may be able to have the brushes and armature replaced / inspected.Doing this job is not too difficult but can go bad, so I would recommend having a local rebuilder or shop do the job unless your comfortable with doing it yourself. You can go to your local library and likely find a repair manual or " how to " book on rebuilding starters.

98 accord wont start. lights flicker in dash and engine wont turn over

Have the battery checked.  You may have heard a fast clicking sound when the lights were flickering, if so it's coming from the starter solenoid.  If the battery is bad, have the voltage regulator and alternator checked also.  A bad voltage regulator or alternator will kill the new battery.    

Try starting with jumper cables, if that works, you can pull the battery out, take it to a auto parts store that will test it for free (most parts stores will do this).  If it's bad, you can put a new battery in and then drive straight to somewhere to have the charging system tested.
