Is the security warning light on ?
Is the starter getting power from the key switch via the neutral safety switch ?

I think its you alternator, the battery and alternator kind of work back to back with each other. I will take the car to shop that you know and can trust and have them diagnose the car all together. Good Luck.

Check to see where the kill switch is and press the switch. This may be located by the steering column. Then try to start the car.

Hi, it sounds like the starter solenoid was not wired properly. You have 2 wires at the starter, right? The bigger wire goes to the big top post on the solenoid, right? The smaller wire is called the start wire and it goes to the smaller terminal labeled "S." Is that how you wired it? You also have to be careful when tightening the nuts on the terminals that the start wire terminal does not touch the other terminals and vice versa. Do you have the starter in the car now? Can you take a picture to send me?

Loud clicking sound when i try to tunr it over


boost, hummmmm ?????????????
a charger with a boost button? (big shops have this)
or you mean jumper cable , jump started from a running other car?


my wild guess. is you always start fine, when jumper cable jumped.
this proves, the
battery in your car is BAD or is only discharged.
for 100 years now, same deal.
try a fresh battery off a good car.
works now, so ??? yours is weak or bad!

but started car , is the voltage 13.3. to 15v? a walfart $10 meter.?
no , then the charge system is bad (charge lamp on?)
note, i said system. not a specific part.

if the charge system is failing.?
  1. bad battery. tha'ts right alts do shut down with battery bad. (open or shorted battery)
  2. loose alternator pulley belt.?
  3. bad alternator wires. connections.? or bad battery cables.?
  4. scan the PCM most 2007 will report what is wrong with voltages and charge. scan it.
engine rpm way below normal at idle 800 is typ. good. 400 dead wrong.
battery cables bad.
battey cables lugs green with corrosion
someone put the minus cable far end to the wrong part>?
this minus cable has correct spot near the starter.
some fit to block others to stater , bolt or bell blots.
to frame is wrong, seen that , with lazy work.

Won't start


so stop guessing, buy an $10 voltmeter (walfart has one)
and do simple tests. all very easy, ask.
the first step is jumper cable starts, ! cranks/ pass/fail??????
my guess, this fails.
if my car dont jump start, (i can coast start my car)
i check battery voltgage, alhhhhhh 12.6vdc, good. 10v bad.
i then hot wire the starter solenoid.
dead, (or clicks) , starter bad, big cables to it bad,(x2) or engine seized. (or battery bad, blow 10v cranking is bad battery 99%
i hand turn engine by hand, it dont turn, it's seized.
it turns by hand; good.!
so lets say the hot wire test works (keys in pocket cranks but dont start now , because my keys are in my pockets for safety)

that means the KEY LINE Is dead (small wire to starter solenoid)
see here. works for all cars. (not hacked key lines, etc.)

My 97 saturn sl2 will not start


You'll need to crawl under the car and check for power on the small terminal of the stater with the key in the crank position. Knowing if you have power there will help to give you a direction to go in. If you don't have a test light or a multi meter, you can jump the large wire at the starter to the small wi at the stater with the key in the off position. If the starter works than you'll need to focus on wiring. If the starter doesn't work replace it.

Car not starting


starter motor is jammed. solenoid on the starter is sticking. if its a manual gearbox put the car bin 4th gear, release the handbrake and rock the car back and forth.if you hear a clunk then the solenoid has released. try starting the car again. if its an automatic remove the stater motor and investgate. either way your starter motor needs overhaul or replacing
