Using a voltmeter, check that voltage is identical to battery volts at the other end of cables. Check across the battery terminals, across connectors on battery, between negative post on battery and connection at starter, between positive post and end of negative cable then from postiive post and block. Wherever you find a variation, clean and re-check reading.If this does not help, there are sub system teststs you can do as well but I believe you will likely locate your problem before getting into that.

Cant get my starter to engage when I turn the key on.


Is the battery fully charged and all cables clean and tight? You can try tapping on starter motor with a blunt object while trying to crank it. If it starts, the starter motor is bad

Car will not start. Dash lights come up when key is turned, but are dim. When turning the key, there is no sound or click. Battery was tested at and confirmed to be fully charged. What is wrong?


Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid or starting relay, whichever the car uses.
Hope this helps.

Using key start, instrument panel illuminates but why won't it turn over?


Dirty battery posts...(loose) or locked starter...sometimes you can tap the starter with a hammer to make it work one time to confirm...Hope this helps.
