Question about Volkswagen Polo
The ignition lights up when key is turned and buzzes correctly but the engine does not turn over. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Maybe the starter motor is stuck? ( but no dunk noise from the starter motor contact so possibly not this)
It's common for the battery to have enough voltage to make just about everything electrical on the car work, but not have enough power to crank the engine. I would check your battery first. When you try to start it, does the voltage drop below 12 volts? If so, you need a fresh battery. If you don't have access to a voltage meeter and your battery is more than 5 years old you can assume that you need to replace it.

SOURCE: H2 Hummer
Today 11-12-08 my 2003 H2 Hummer would not start. Checked battery it ischarged. Cables tight. Tried to start with portable booster pak. No go. Tridto jump start with my wife's Suburban. Still no go.
When I turn the switch I hear a single click and that is it. No engine turning over. While trying to start with key the headlights go out. Out of ideas, Will take to Chevy garage in am. Will post solution.

Your problem is a faulty starter solenoid relay.
It is staying in the POWER ON position.
The relay is located under the hood near the power distribution panel (fusebox) i believe.
Consult your owners manual or Repair manual for exact location.

Follow the( + ) positive lead from the battery, to the starter, check the connections, if all OK, get someone to turn the ignition key to start, and give the starter a tap, on the selenoid, with a small hammer or a metal socket extension.
Good Luck !
Let me know the outcome !
Also a FixYa rating would be nice !

Sounds like the solenoid. You know you have Roadside Assistance with your new Hyundai. Have it towed in and get it diagnosed & repaired under warranty.
