Could be one of two things.

1. Your starter motor is no good.
2. If you turn on your lights and try to start the car and they dim to almost black, then you need to check the battery connections.

Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

SOURCE: Hello, My Hyundai will not

check on the fuse box, am sure that a starter fuse is blown. the alternator might be the causer. as you said you changed it not so long. When you find out the fuse are ok, check also the solnoid wire on the starter motor beside the main wire, when that is good then might be the carbon brushes are won need to be replaced

I have a 1998 Olds Achieva SC with a v-6 and auto transmission. It will not crank or even click. It has a new battery.

could be your alternator died. the battery might be showing 12 volts, but it might not have enough amps to start it.

My Chrysler 300 won't start. Problem is not battery or fuses. Not getting 12 volts to 5 amp fuse (fuse is good) for control voltage to starter relay. Applied 12 volts to fuse socket with ignition s

PLease, check if the check engine light lit up when you turn the switch, if it doesn't lit up, your EMC (computer) is not getting any electricity. And that could be the reason that you the fuses are OK but it won't start.

Ignition relay clicks but starter won't engage

Where is this relay? A wiring diagram doesn't show any relay at all in the starting circuit. Just this: a yellow start wire out of ignition switch goes to the neutral safety switch (if manual, a clutch start switch on the clutch pedal: if automatic a transmission range switch); From the safety switch a purple wire to the starter solenoid on the starter motor. Only other place to check is a "crank" fuse in the instrument panel fuse block- a 10 amp fuse in position 8 of the block.
Is the click you hear possibly from the starter solenoid? If it is, that means key switch part of circuit to the solenoid is good. Either starter motor is bad, or battery connections to starter and to battery ground may be bad, check them first.

Car won't start, no sound when I turn the key. New starter, battery, and alternator. What could the problem be? Drove it for about 2 hours then parked it for about 3 hrs. Tried to start it acted like it...

Hi, there are a few things it could be. Safety interlock, starter relay, ignition switch, or starter solenoid. If you cannot hear the start relay click, the problem is probably with the interlock connection on the transmission range sensor. First check the 10 amp starter relay fuse (#7 in the cabin) . If the fuse is good, you can bypass the interlock by pulling the connector off the transmission range switch and connecting the terminals of the tan and brown wires using a paper clip. If this allows the car to start, replace the range switch. If not, the problem may be with the ignition switch. To check the ignition switch, use a 12 volt test light or voltmeter to check voltage on the brown wire of the connector at the transmission range switch when the key is turned to start. If that brown wire is not hot with the key turned fully, the switch or the fuse is bad. If there is power all the way thru to the relay but the relay does not click, swap out the relay. You can borrow another relay to check this out. The A/C clutch relay is a good one to borrow--it's right next to the starter relay in the relay box by the battery.

If you can hear the start relay click when you turn the key, the problem is probably the starter solenoid.
If you need instructions for replacing parts or if you have any questions, please let me know.

Battery good power to the starter 2000 ford windstar radio works turn ignition on get nothing 3.8 eng. no power in engine fuse box compartment 1 relay warm & another clicks in fuse box under...

#1 Try starting the car in Neutral, if no start replace the Park and Neutral safty switch. #2 Check for a faulty starter solenoid. #3 Check for a faulty stsrter motor. #4 Check for a faulty ignition switch. #5 Check for faulty starter Relays.#6 Check the Transmission Range sensor it could be out of adjustment or defective. #7 On 1998 and later models, the power relay is in the power distribution box in the engine compartment. Refer to your owners manual for more information on relay location. Good Luck From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

The battery is full , its clicking like a dead batt or like the contacts in the starer are gone so changed the starter with a bench tested starter & still the same problem ....? so checked all fuses...

If battery is new or like new and fully charged, and it still clicks, then the contacts to the battery may be corroded to the point that a 'limited' amount of current flows through the contacts to the starter.

When the starter is removed and bench tested, it will test out ok, so there must be something else wrong with the starting/charging system other than the starter or the battery itself. Something in between the two items is causing your problem.

Good luck on this repair.

Battery good, wont turn over, just a click when try to start

it is most likley starter relay or starter.with vehicle in park and e-brake on have someone tap on the starter with hammer while your trying to start.if starter starts to crank then you know the starter is on the way out.if starter does not crank it may already be shot.srarter relay is on fire wall check power + ground.
