    I have very similar problems and after trying to start my car a few times it doesn't turn over at all. The radio and windows and everything still work, but no sound or anything when trying to start the engine. I had my car towed and looked at a few weeks ago and by the time it was in the shoo (about 8 hours later) the car started right up. They told me nothing was wrong. I got my car back and this just happen again the other day. I let me car sit for about 8 hours again, went back and it started. Now it is not starting again...any help?

Car won't start

Did you try starting in neutral? Some vehicles have electronic transmission lockouts that will go bad and prevent ignition cycling even when it is not in gear.

2004 dodge dakota sometimes starter just clicks then after a couple times it will start .starter tested good battery is good

That sounds like a starter selenoid problem. The selenoid is what the key switch engages to supply power to the starter. I am not sure of the location but many are on the fender well under the hood. I hope that helps.

Trouble shoot a 2007 honda crv starter

Take the starter off for testing. If the lights were normally bright, and went dim when key was in cranking position, it means the start circuit is working-battery power is going to the starter, but it won't do anything. The starter motor is probably bad.
Good luck.

2008 jeep wrangler, sometimes when I try to start, it will click but not start. I keep trying and finally it will start. replaced the battery and had the starter checked. what else should I try

it sounds like the starter is going out even though it may have checked out ok it still could have a bad spot in it also check all your connections. Also when it does this put a test light on the signal wire at the starter (the small wire) and make sure your getting power there when the key is in start position. If there is power but no start you got a bad starter provided you got battery power to the starter too

Clicking sound when trying to start and no start (sometimes). I think it sounds like the starter is clicking. it is a lot like when the battery is going dead and does not supply enough power to engage...

Everything you are describing leads me to believe the battery is the culprit.Not enough storage in it after it sets,when it does start the alternator has to work at max to recover from the start making it idle rough,and the fact that it starts good warm tells me that you definitely need a battery.You can confirm this by boosting the truck the next time it starts "just clicking",if it goes with a boost then you will know for sure that the battery is done in.

Car wont start, acts like battery is dead. battery shows full charge. full lights, buzzers, etc. put it on charger-didnt start...cleaned cable connections-didnt start...tried to jump with truck-didnt...

Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.

Car won't start. The battery is connected

Sometimes the starter sylinoid goes out. If its a clicking noise its the battery. If nothing try the starter. Sometimes you can tap the starter with a hammer and its good if that is not it test the starter. Start here before you go to anything else. Its the starter most likely.

My sisters 1996 lincoln continental sometimes starts sometimes wo

Definitely sounds like a starter. When a bad starter is cold, it will start the car. After riding around for a while or after several starts in a row, the starter heats up and won't start without a boost. Since you've ruled out the battery and alternator, I'm positive a new starter will solve your problem. Good Luck!

My 93 toyota truck has no power at all to ignition, lights nothin

My truck was doing the same thing, and it turned out the starter was going bad, it started drawing too much juice from the battery, so the crank power from the battery wasn't enough to start the motor, but the battery was good, if you jump start it from another vehicle and it starts right away, it is most likely your starter.
