At the starter key on or off make a quick connection with a screwdriver at +&-, if it sparks and turns over you need a new starter or solenoid.

If the key is returning to  the 'Run' position as it should, then either a relay controlling the solenoid or the solenoid itself is hanging up. The heavy contacts that send power to the starter can develop rough surfaces that can temporarily weld themselves together causing the starter to run on even though the engine is running and the key has returned to the proper position. There is also a spring that should normally help return the solenoid's contacts to their 'off' position that may be weakened.

Then the next thing to check is the starter itself, are you hearing any popping noises from the base of the motor? The starter should not be hard to change. Once you pull it out you can take it to the autozone and they can test it for you. The starter solenoid may be bad also, but these are normally attached to the starter. I hope this helps give you some insight.

First, make sure you can turn the engine by hand. If you can't then the starter can't turn it either. Have someone else turn the key and look for the source of the click...may be a relay. Go over the starting circuit with a volt meter. Check for power at the starter main terminal and then with the key turned to "start" check for power at the trigger terminal on the starter. Check battery voltage and check relay operation.
You have a neutral safety switch on the transmission if its an automatic and a clutch switch if it's a stick. Check them as well. Make sure battery grounding on fender and block are also clean and secure.

SOURCE: 1996 mitsubishi eclipse doesn't start when turning

check for voltage at the small start wire on the starter when cranking the engine--you will need someone help. If there is no voltage you may have a bad neutral safety switch ,which is on the trany shifter.you have an automatic trans i assume.
If so try putting in neutral when cranking.

Motor don't turn nothing dash lights and head lights 1985toyota pu


Do the gauges and warning lights work with key on? If not, check fusible links, AM1 for ignition key power. If the gauges/warning lights work, the key switch has power, so you can follow it to the starter solenoid. The start wire out of the ignition switch is a black/white wire, this is the hot wire to the solenoid, and only has power when key is held in start. With automatics, there is only one switch-a neutral start switch- between the ignition switch and the solenoid on the starter .

With a manual transmission, the black-white start wire goes to both a starter relay and a clutch start switch (on the clutch pedal), those two work together to send the power on to the starter solenoid. So, no crank, good battery, power to key, follow the black/white wire, the start relay and the clutch switch, to the starter solenoid- a hot wire there turns the starter motor on.

I turn the key to start & i get nothing


When you turn the key to on, do the warning lights and gauges come on normally? Any reason to suspect the battery is low? Has the starter motor performed flawlessly up to this point?

Without a voltmeter or test light, one's best choice is to take the starter off and have it tested. With a test light, check for power on the small purple wire at the starter solenoid, with the key held in crank. If power there, probably bad starter or solenoid. If no power, start checking the start circuit-power is lost between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid-clutch interlock switch or park/neutral switch may be the problem.
Battery cables, terminals, starter electrical connections, and ground screws: make sure all are good with tight clean connections.

2004 olds alero 3400 eng.turn on key and all warning lights and gauges come up,then all goes off after 3 seconds,starter will not work,can start by jumping across starter and runs fine and shifts fine


Check for power at the switch wire when someone turns the key to start. I would say there is a break in the circuit of the thin wire between the starter & the ignition switch

2008 Outlander cannot turn the key. Gauges come on and lights blink, key comes in and out but I cannot turn car on.


This is hard to diagnose over the net without physically seeing what is happening to the starting components with the key turned to start but could be your vehicle neutral position switch (vehicle has to sense the car in park or neutral to start) could be starter issue, ignition switch and even a low cranking amp battery. Have you tried to jump start the car?

Do all the warning lights in the instrument cluster come on when you turn the key? If Yes, then you need to check the neutral safety switch on the side the transmission[Automatic in your Montero?], as these are a known failure part for higher mile Monteros. You lose power to the starter solenoid as a result of the switch contacts going bad. Have someone put a test light on the solenoid wire at the starter motor, while you or a friend carefully tries to start the engine. If the circuit is working correctly, you'd see the test light turn on brightly. I'm betting you'll see no light, since I suspect the switch isn't letting power through.
