Could be bad ignition switch in the steering column, try keeping the key turned and wiggle it a little, it may find a spot good enough to get the starter going.

Maybe bad wire to the starter solenoid, or cruddy connection at the solenoid.

A manual transmission must have the clutch pushed in to start. If the switch connected to the clutch is bad, the car won't start.
Good luck...Chris

MY PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER 'S HEADLIGHT'S AND DASH LIGHTS WORK, BUT THE ENGINE WON'T TURN OVER. THERE IS NO SPARK COMING FROM THE ELECTRICAL WIRES.


When you say no spark, are you talking about the spark plugs, or just the general wiring?

If the engine won't turn over, then it isn't moving, and if it isn't moving then you need to check the following in this order:

1) Does the battery have power i.e. around 12.4 volts or over?No? Charge, test or replace battery.

2) Do the car's head lights dim considerably if turned on when attempting to crank? Yes? Possible lack of battery charge or faulty battery.

3) Assuming the battery is fine, can you turn the dash warning lights on and off with the key? No? Faulty ignition switch.

4) Is there a click sound when you turn the key, but no starter motor spin? Check starter motor connections or replace starter motor.


If none of the above prove to be of help, then please report.

Your battery is most likely dead if your lights go out. Charge or change your battery, but your altenater maybe be bad. It recharges your battery, if it don't work your battery will die..

Disconnect the positive lead of the battery and hook a simple test light from that lead to the positive post of the battery. The light will come one for a second and go out. If it stays on you can start looking for the short by one by one pulling fuses going to circuits that don't need the keys to work. The frist thing befiore starting this test is to unplug the hood light if you have one. If the courtesy light isn't the problem, pull that fuse and you can do the rest of the testing with the doros open. Good luck.

1991 Lexus 400 - engine doesn't start - battery seems charged - 12.3 volts - makes clicking sound only - doesn't turn over at all.


Is it one click or multiple clicks. If it's multiple clicks, it sounds like a dead battery. Voltage isn't always an indicator of a good battery, you need to have enough cranking amps to be able to start an engine also. If you have dash lights and it only clicks once, you could have a bad starter. An easy way to check this is to try and jump start the vehicle. If it starts up with a jump start, you need a new battery. If it still doesn't start up and it just clicks, you probably need a new starter.

Good Luck!
