Question about Cars & Trucks
My car wont start but when you touch the battery every thing comes on. I have a 99 escort with a car starter.
You have to take the battery clamps off once or twice a year and clean where they contact with a battery post cleaner brush or reamer. Purchase a di-electric paste or light bulb contact paste and put between the clean battery post and clamp. Tighten. Sometimes you have to replace the clamps with new ones.

SOURCE: wont start
If the solenoid makes a clicking sound it isn't the ignition switch. Depends on the clicking sound, one click or rattling. Try turning on lights and trying to start, if lights go out when attempting to start, voltage problem(usually battery or bad connections).

The problem may be caused by the starter relay, fuse, or fusible link. The fuse is easy enough to check.
You can check the fusible link. Sometimes they get corroded or melt and break the circuit.
The starter relay is most likely the problem. Since you did not give a model year.
I can only guest the location of the relay.
Look under the hood on the drivers side, right above the wheel well. Look for a black box. the relays are inside.
If not you can give your model year.
