Are the relays clinking or just the starter. If just starter Try removing the small wire from starter ( big wire batt power, little wire command from key)Could be bad starter solenoid or relay. If relays click need to test ignition

SOURCE: truck won't start

You should check your battery cables with an ohmmeter and see if they have any resistance,they should be at 0 ohms or just alittle over,but could possibly be the starter solenoid also.I had this same problem with my Toyota last year,hard starting sometimes needed a jump and then the alt went bad,turned out to be the solenoid was shorting intermittantly.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: charging system failure

Hello! The problem you are experiencing is most likely due to a fautly or malfunctioning alternator. You can take the car to any major auto parts store, and they can do a FREE charging system test which will tell you if your alternator is operating (and charging the battery) properly, as well as if your battery is accepting the incoming charge from the alternator.

Hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: 2005 kia rio will not start with jumper cables

The clicking sound is either coming from the starter relay or the starter solenoid switch.If the starter makes no click then it has to come off and get new brusjhes put in it or have the solenoid replaced.You can check it by jumping the post with the battery cable fastened to it to the smaller post with the small wire on it either with a small screwdriver or a piece of wire.If it goes then,then you need the relay,if it does nothing then you need to fix the starter.

99 suzuki vitara v6 turns on all power but wont


the starter uses 10x more elect. power than the head lamps
or 100x more than dash lamps. it means little.
what matters most is jumper cable starts.
does it crank with jumper cables to a running, donor car,(aaa jump)
no bad starter
no, bad starter key line( immobliizer or such) ask how to test.
yes, cranks great, now.
that means the battery was dead,
i charge the battery and it now cranks, due to lights left on or
charge system failure, if battery goes to 13.3 to 15v running good
if on the charge system failed. (causing battery discharge)
if after charging a battery it will not crank car, its a bad battery (jumps ok)

No light can come up including ignation key


check vehicle battery connections for obvious corrosion. If none is present, use another vehicle and battery jumper cables-properly hooked up, and with 2nd vehicle idling, try cranking Toyota. If not immediately starting, give it a few minutes to charge toyota battery, and then try again. A fully drained battery will require several minutes charge from second vehicles charging system to sufficiently charge drained battery.

My sister hooked up jumper cables to my 2002 kia sportage to jump her car. she hooked them up wrong and now my car wont start


At least your sister was not injured by an exploding battery - that is a probable outcome of reverse charging.

Does the engine turn over at normal speed? If not, try recharging your battery.

In any case, it would be a good idea to check your charging system to make sure the voltage regulator is still good (this is usually part of the alternator).

If the engine turns over normally, but won't fire, try doing a computer reset - the computer memory may have been corrupted by the reverse voltage. This is done by disconnecting the ground cable of the battery for a minute, then reconnecting it, or if it is available, disconnecting the ECM power lead rather than the battery ground. (Caution: if your car radio has an anti-theft security system built in, check the manual for the proper procedure first. Failure to follow this procedure will disable the radio.) In the worst case, the engine control module or some other part of the control system was damaged.

2005 Corvette stored in garage with no battery tender hooked up, now battery is dead. How do i gain access in the car to release the hood to hook up a charger?


Usually you can energize the electrical system by making a mini set of jumper cables using a lamp cord and alligator clips. attach one end to a battery and attach the ground to the starter housing or any metal bracket, the positive lead to the main terminal on the starter. (don't mix up the lead ends...mark them so you can identify them.) Do not try to start the car with this attached. light wire won't handle the amperage.

2003 S TYPE JAGUAR. DON'T DRIVE OFTEN BATTERY


You must charge the battery or you can use jumper cables from another battery to your battery to activate the electric trunk release, just be sure you hook up the jumper cables correctly ( cable to + on the battery and black to _ terminal of battery)and wear safety glasses when hooking up cables this should release the trunk. Also as a precaution always hook up + or red jumper cables wires first to prevent a arcing spark which is not terribly dangerous but this order in which to connect jumper cables is recommended.

key off and out,diconnect negitive side of battrey then postive.clean terimals,charge battrey,connect postive cable (with key off)connect negitive.and start.
your dead battrey is taking up a big load on system,so when you boost it the dead battrey is taking it all the starter is geeting vey little.thats the clicking.
if you dont have a charger dicconect both terminals the same way again,put the jumper cables on the dead battrey.let it charge battrey for 10 15 mins .the longer the better.remover jumpers.
with key off and out conected battrey terminals.connect jumper cables and start.
let me know if it start or not hopefully the key hasnt lost its coding.
