What cause fiat uno 1100 starting problem

Check/ inspect. ..
the battery voltage, should be 12 volts
the battery connections, should be nice and tight and free from corrosion
the wiring to the starter motor/ solenoid,
the main earth wire attached to the car chassis.
If applicable check your alarm system or immobilizer is working correctly
if applicable and obviously take the car out of gear / drive and put in neutral. ( automatic transmissions won't start unless in the neutral position.
turn the headlights off.
be sure your turning the key all the way to to start position.
check dose the motor turn over manually (siezed)
dose the starter motor make a clicking sound? this is the solenoid trying to engage.
(try push starting/ jump starting the car)
remove starter motor and replace or recondition
hope this helps a bit.

My 1980 ford bronco wont start. replaced solenoid and starter and it dose the same thing. wont crank wen i disconnect and reconnect battery and i try to start it all it dose is it clicks and everything...

it sounds like the battery has a problem with it and needs replacing,as you try to start the truck it pulls all the voltage out of the battery(which is very little in the battery)causing the clicking sound you hear,make sure the battery cable connections are tight and clean,both the terminals and cable takes very little voltage to power up a radio or lights and they probably stop working shortly after they are turned on.

My 1999 Mercury Mountainer wont start I've replaced the battery,starter and selenoid,alternator but it still wont start when I turn the key the gauge lights come on but it does not make any noise not even...

Since your lights don't dim when you turn the key, the starter isn't getting power at all. There is a large cable that runs from the battery to the starter, it should have battery voltage at all times. If it does, then check the smaller wire at the top of the solenoid, it should have battery voltage only when you turn the key to start. If that wire doesn't have voltage when you turn the key to start, look under the dash on the steering column. There should be a thick wire (about 12 gauge) that is red with a light blue stripe. This is the start wire. Test it for voltage when you turn the key to start. If you don't get voltage there, replace the ignition switch. If you do get voltage there, try starting it in neutral. The gear selector switch interrupts the starter circuit if the car is in gear so you can't grind the starter in gear or start it in gear. If this switch gets a bad spot on the contact, it can keep it from starting. It will only allow the starter to work in park and neutral. If it starts in neutral, then you need to replace the gear selector switch. If you get voltage at the ignition wire under the dash and it won't start in neutral, then you need to trace out the wire from the starter because it has a break in it and will have to be replaced.

Car turns over as if the battery is dead but battery is good. replaced solenoid and still barly turns over. dose not have enuff power to start motor.

If the starter is dragging,or have problems turning the engine over,or just does not do anything,then the starter is the problem,unless there is no voltage from the ignition getting to the starter.

Audi 100cs does not crank and does not start

If you have acess to a mutimeter check the batery voltage. Should be around 12.5 volts. also check batery voltage when trying to crank engine. Should drop to 9volts while cranking. If it dose but engine dose not turn over you know power is still going to the starter motor but its just not turning. This could be a bad conection in the starter some where.if voltage dose not drop you know power is not reaching the starter motor. this could be a bad earth to the starter from the baterty somewhere. But also listen for clunking or clicking noices while cranking which would surgest the starter is trying to turn. try this before doing any other diagnostics.hope this helps

Lights up when turned on,but repeated clicking when you try to start it

dose it start when you get a boost off, and if it dose you need to check your battery connectors they may need replacing, and if thats not the problem make sure that your alternator is charging your battery and if non of these are the problem you need a starter.

Car will not turn over just clicks

this is a result of 1 a bad starter or not enough voltage reaching the starter.
try haveing some one hold the key in the crank position and tap the starter with a hammer
about 4-5 times if it turns over then the starter needs replaced if it dose not then you need to
clean all wire connections check the battery and recheck.
