Take a hammer and tap the starter.. may need new starter... brushes in old one get worn out and dont make contact when they need to as it spins... throw a new starter w/cylanoid on it if it comes assembled together.. if not.. get a cylanoid too.. you tube how to replace starter (list make model) and you can find step by step how to videos to put it on yourself. I have replaced a lot of parts on different cars this way.. learn and do it yourself and SAVE the big bucks! If your battery was low and lights low and all that I would say alternator or generator (whatever your car has).. but with no fire but plenty of battery .. your starter is where you would start.. then your rotor and distributor.. but when you turn your key and try to start.. do you hear the rrrr rrrrr rrrrrr before it actually runs? If not.. that is why.. that rrr rrrr rrrr IS the STARTER. If you do not hear it .. it is broken.. try a jump or new battery first.. if still no sound.. then starter.. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE strong enough charge in battery.. hook up another running car to it and let it charge.. then try to start.. if battery is charged for sure enough then it should try to turn your starter.. they go out.. a little under a 100,000 miles.. my car has over 230,000 and its still purring like a kitten.. lol :) good luck!

Remove the starter relay, check for power at terminal, continuity to starter solenoid, and one more thing-jump relay terminals until you get the clicking noise of the starter solenoid trying to engage. If you hear the click at the starter but still won't turn over, tap the starter solenoid two or three times lightly. Check for power at starter lug. Loose terminals at the battery or corrosion is also of importance.

SOURCE: lights,horn work but car wont start

Troubleshoot the starter. If your battery is good, then you WILL have power...the lights will work, horn, etc, but....if the starter is toast...you need a starter.

Clean off the battery terminals (inside not outside) if the battery has 12v in it it should start...If it dosent, just ask and I'll give you more help with it.

Clean terminals on battery really good then put them back on the battery after you have cleaned oit off really good. Turn on the high beams and crank it. See if they go out.

Sometimes if the battery is really dead, even jumping it wont help it start up. It just sounds like a dead battery. Just try getting a new batter first then go from there.

The car will not start


replace your battery. Even when a battery is dead it will still have enough juice to operate smal things like the horn and radio, but not enough juice to start the car. If the battery is dead you should still be able to jump start it and take it to autozone and they can check it along with the alternator at the same time.
