If the starter turns but the engine does not, the two most common causes are a section of teeth missing from the flywheel, or the bendix drive is not working on the starter.
The bendix gear is supposed to move out and engage the flywheel teeth when the starter turns.

SOURCE: My 2007 tundra went dead. The ignition won't start

There are several possibilities ranging from a defective starter, to bad cable connections, to the onboard security system locking out the starter relay, or an aftermarket accessory interfering with the starter circuit, or a locked-up/damaged engine.

I have had vehicles towed into my shop for similar complaints when the only problem was that the customer was using a cheap duplicate key that they had made at the hardware store that did not have the required computer chip in it.

I have also had vehicles towed in where the customer had replaced the battery and did not have good cable connections or forgot to connect one of the wires that was supposed to to get hooked-up to the battery connector.

Then there are the questions: Are you getting any kind of "clicking" noises when turning the key or is it completely dead? If it is clicking, WHAT is clicking? Is it the starter motor itself that you hear or just the starter motor relay? Do you have battery power at the starter "S" terminal when turning the key? If not, is the transmission selector in "PARK"? Does the shift indicator on the dash indicate that the transmission range sensor is in "PARK"? (possible defective transmission range sensor) Are there any fault codes stored in ANY of the modules connected to your onboard computer network?

It is really hard to say without being able to see the truck.

SOURCE: crossed battery cables on 2006 tundra now

not sure, you could test it. Alternatively, I think I'd first be looking more at the starter solenoid and test that.

If you have other key try it. If it still doesn't work the immobilizer has a problem. If you deactivate it anyone with a copy of your key can put it to work. Be sure of what you do.

HI if you have pulsation after a month you must replace the rotors

SOURCE: I replaced the starter on my 2001 toyota tacoma truck (3.4). The starter is now turning and it appears the engine is moving a bit when the key is turned, but it wont start. I have retraced the wiring,

Won't start or won't crank ? ?
If it won't crank you might have an engine problem such as a broken timing belt.

My 88 gq Nissan patrol won't start. There's clicking but won't kick over


Sounds like what happens when your battery is too low to make the starter kick over. At least from my experience. Could be something more like bad connection between battery and the starter. To clean these you could dip the positive cable of battery connectors in a cup of fresh cola or any other soda or baking soda in dissolved in water to clean it and then on the positive site you possibly would want to get a battery post cleaner or wire brush to clean it. because you do not want any of the soda getting inside the battery or it will be useless. This would make the electrolyte in the battery to become neutral and cause you to have to buy a new battery. I hope this helps. Thanks, Cody

Truck has electrical power but won't turn over. I think I can hear the starter solenoid engaging. Not sure. where do I start trouble shooting?


Safety first!--Make sure you're in park & brake on-- Try shorting across the starter terminals with a screwdriver,if the bendix kicks in & nothing spins,remove the starter & put in bench vice ,(or hold down securely), & jump with cables.--REMEMBER POLARITY--If the starter spins you are in deep *******---something in the motor is probably locked up.(If the starter doesn't spin get a new one.)

My jeep won't start help?


There's lots of things that can cause your Jeep to not start. Is the starter cranking over? If not, you could have a dead battery, bad battery cables, a bad Transmission Range Sensor, a bad Starter, or a bad ignition switch.

If the starter is turning over but the engine just won't start, you need to figure out what is missing. It either is not getting any fuel or not getting any spark, or something like a timing chain is broken and you have no compression.

You should probably also scan your engine computer. There may be a fault code set that will lead you directly to the problem.

Once you figure out what is missing and/or you have collected fault code(s) I can probably offer more help if you need it.

My car is not ingaging to turn over


If it is just clicking, then the battery is too weak. Charge the battery or jumpstart.

If the battery is full charged and when you turn the key, the starter is just clicking again, possibly bad starter or bad battery cable ground. Check your grounds from the battery.

If it is a new starter and it is clicking like it won't engage, then it is not shimmed properly.

If you figure out what is wrong and need further help, please reply to this post with your questions.

Thanks! Oh, please post your engine size, year of car or truck and model. This helps A LOT!!!
