My 1984 Mercedes 300td will not crank over the battery is fine and the fuses are fine please help

There's nothing at all when you turn the ignition key? maybe just a clicking noise?

Start with the basics - the things that you can check and fix yourself.
  1. Are the battery cables tight?
  2. Check the earth cable where it connects to the engine/bodywork. Make sure it is clean and is actually earthing properly
  3. Check that none of the wires in either positive or earth cable are broken/corroded. This can cause non-starting.

1984-mercedes-300td-will-not-crank-over-drn4r4jcf5cpqfgonvky3zim-5-1.jpeg Batteries need a good earth.

If your car has automatic transmission it will only start in park or neutral. This is controlled by a separate solenoid - usually located on the side of the transmission case. If dirty or faulty, it will cause non-starting problems.

The starter motor could be sticking or faulty. First check the cable to the starter motor. To check if it is just sticking, put the car in gear and 'rock' it - that may free a sticking starter motor.

You say that your battery is fine. Are you absolutely positive? A failing/faulty battery can still be charged .. it will put the lights on - but it won't supply enough amps to crank the engine.

A quick check here is to either borrow a battery from your neighbour's car or use a car and booster cables to boost-start yours. If your car cranks over and fires up your battery is faulty.

If your car doesn't crank it points to starter motor trouble or solenoid trouble.

Why my ford don't start anytime..sometime he does and other dont'

To be quite honest, this still sounds like a battery/ electrical problem even though you have a new battery..

Make sure the leads are clean where they connect onto the battery (obviously)

Also check and clean the earth lead where it connects to the body/engine
A poor/corroded earth will cause starting problems

Check all the earthing points on your vehicle - engine to body - and clean them with abrasive paper if rusty or corroded.

Also check the condition of the battery cables themselves. Corrosion and/or broken wires can cause starting problems:

1999 nissian frontier quite running mechanic says its distributor again. we spent the 600 or so dollars on a new one approx. 18 months ago whats up? is this a common nissian problem or a common me

Slow cranking will make it hard to start this is not anything to do with the distributor but either a lazy starter motor or a failing battery ,put a drop tester on the battery and see if its ok if so then use a heavy duty induction amp meter on the earth lead and see what the starter motor is drawing ,if more than 180 amps then starter is the problem

I drove my 2001 SEL Ford Windstar van home Thursday night and Friday morning when I tried starting the van not one thing happen; no sounds, no lights, key would not unlock the doors, not nothing. My...


It sounds like a broken earth wire, check the main one from the car battery to the car bosy, or to test it get a thick cable roughly the same as the "black" earth lead from the battery attach it to the car body somewhere and the other red to the battery terminal if the car starts you know it is an earth problem. they do often break off the gearbox on these models, so do check. there will be 3 main earth wires in total

VW POLO 1.9CL Diesel 1997 wont start

hi from uk check the main lead from battery+positive to the starters solenoid is secure ? also there is a thin wire that also connects to solenoid on a terminal of its own this is the solenoid energizing wire that works starter when key start position is selected if all above is ok? then use a jump lead and connect one end to battery negative post then the other end of lead to a suitable earth point on engine ? then try starting? if it works/starts ? you have a bad earth connection to engine from battery negative lead check the earth lead connection at point on engine is clean/secure ? it usually is secured by bolt at point where engine and transmission connect ? hope this helps?

Hi ihave a fiat brava 1.2 x reg in the morning the car will not start it turns over rather lazy and only 2 or 3 turns and the digital clock trip meter reset to has new battery earth wires ok...

It seems the battery loses power over night.
There seems to be some electrical componant chewing up the battery.
Try to remove one of the battery terminal wire at night and thn fix it in the morning and thn see if it will start without jumping, if it does thn the battery is being chewed up overnight.
If after removing the battery terminal at night and refitting it in the morning and it still requires jump start ,thn the battery is faulty.
Hope this helps!

Lazy starting and mis firing wen first startin but then runs ok

Hi! I can only give a suggestion as to slow starting, The starter motor windings have probably been cooked? so when cold seem o.k. but at operating temp expand and the armature receives less power. Have you recently tried starting from cold with a poor battery? if so this is the reason, volts go down Amps go up stewing the windings in the starter motor. Misfire could be due to condensation? is the vehicle Garaged?
Hope this helps!
