Truck wont start


Starter fluid won't work if the starter won't turn the engine over.

Get the battery load tested...it may not have enough juice to start the truck but have enough to light up the lights

check your fuses and battery connections at the starter. Is the anti theft light flashing? If it is that's your problem. Wait 10 minutes insert the key...wait for the theft light to go out before trying to start.

if that doesn't work you will need to get the starter checked...which means you will have to take it off.

1986 ford f350 won't start


The solenoid click sounds very strong, implying that you have a charged battery and the ignition circuit is functioning out to the solenoid. Suspect an issue with the starter motor. Is the starter motor installed and connected properly?

1990 Buick Century Limited 6cly wont start turn over or crank


Usually if the battery is dead, you will hear clicking. If the battery is good then I would check any Starter fuses/relays. If they are good then I would check for power to the starter solenoid. You can find many youtube videos on how to check this.

2006 cobalt.replaed starter relay fuse all lights come on dash ect. fuel going to fuel pump but wont crank over


Are you positive the battery is good? Did you try to jump it ? Make sure all cables are clean and tight. When you say "won't crank over" do you mean the engine doesn't turn at all? If not, I don't know why you think the fuel pump would be the culprit. If it cranks and doesn't start, I don't know why you replaced the starter.

Disconnecting the battery doesn't reset the light. You need a scan tool for that unless you get lucky and fix the problem and go through enough cycles for it to go out on it's own.

Take it to Autozone or Advance or somewhere and have them read the codes. They do it for free for you. (They are hoping you will buy parts there) They can reset the light as well.

My 99 Gmc jimmy will not start. the fuel pump is good the fuel filter is not clogged, i replaced the neutral safety switch, plugged in my code reader no codes, i believe it is the starter or the ignition...


Does it crank or not? If no crank then look at the starter or ignition switch. If crank but no start then look at the ignition system. Check for spark at the plugs and also check the fuel pressure. If there is spark try spraying a little starting fluid into the intake. See if it starts and stays running. If it stays running reply back and I will explain why.

Security lockout


If the theft light on the dash is blinking fast, that would be an indication of the PATS ( Passive AntiTheft System ) immobilizer not allowing the truck to start.

Turn the key from off to run ( do not start ), does the LED on the dash stop blinking ( takes ~4 seconds ) ?

If the LED goes out, and you turn the key and nothing happens, next to check is :
1. The Battery cables: Make sure the battery connections to the battery, and the starter are clean, and no damage.
2. The Starter solenoid fuse : This is fuse #101, 30A. This powers the normally open contacts on the starter relay.
3. The starter relay : This is in the fuse panel in the cab of the truck. If you want to try another relay, you can use the high beam relay or the trailer tow battery charge relay ( both Full size ISO relays ).

One other thing to try, turn the key to the run position ( do not start ) press and hold the brake, and shift into Neutral then turn the key to the start position. Could be the DTR ( Digital Transmission Range ) sensor it corroded in the park position, and not allowing power to come from the key to the starter relay.
If it starts, shift through the gear selector a few times, to see if this cleans the DTR contacts, put back in park shut off, and try to start again.
Here is the starting system diagram, so you can see what I am talking about
