Why won't it start?

It sounds like your battery doesn't have enough of power to start your vehicle up. It will click like that when the battery power is extremely low. I would suggest taking the battery to be tested first before buying a new battery. Many times when you try jumping it off of another vehicle and the battery is extremely low, it wont put enough of power out from the other vehicle to start it up with. You can also try letting the car stay on to charge the other battery up for around an hour and see if it may turn the car on then. If that doesn't help. then your battery may have bad cells in it and may need replaced. Hope that helps ya.

Ive 2006 ram3500 diesel 5.9 2 wheel drive. runs great up until yesterday driving on freeway at 75-80 mph when i experience loss off power, no throttle response. What could be the issues?

it is possible that you may have had a sensor malfunction in one of your main systems. These sensors are there to put your engine into "limp in mode" so as not to cause more damage to the engine but yet allow it to be taken safely off the road and/or to your mechanic.

1998 Ford Expedition XLT Eddie Bauer truck kicks/stutters after I take my foot off accelerator at 70mph-why?

You need to have the engine control computer scanned for fault codes, if nothing shows then it is very possible you have a failing fuel pump.

This happens at various times during the year. Most of the time it starts like it should. When i go somewhere and I am only out of the truck for 10 minutes or less and go to start it just turns over it...

If you meant the engine cranks without starting, the engine most likely drowns itself.
When that happens, push the gas pedal to the floor a few seconds while cranking to signal the PCM to cut the injectors completely allowing you to vent the excess fuel from the cylinders.
After that is done, you may find the engine easier to start with the gas pedal partially pressed. The deeper it is the leaner the mix will be.

95 F250 not starting

You said you tightened the battery cables, did you check the other end of the negative where it bolts to the engine. When you tightened the cables you also used a battery brush and cleaned the posts and ends?

When i try to turn over my truck all i hear is a click it has power and everything what could this be?/

If you mean - attempting to start the vehicle - all you hear is a click -

Then probably a bad solenoid.  Or possibly a low battery.

You state it has power.  Are the headlights BRIGHT when you turn them on... and stay BRIGHT when you try to start the truck.

A low battery - with practically no load - can easily measure over 12 volts - and not have enough juice to turn over the starter...

That being said - a clicking noise, and no starter engagement, or sudden downward change in the brightness of headlights; or drop in battery voltage while attempting to start the vehicle - probably means a bad solenoid.

The solenoid most likely has two copper washers on each side of a plunger.  The 'washers' have probably worn down over time.  They are actually copper contacts, and eventually wear out due to arcing.  If the battery is truly ok; remove the starter.  Then remove the solenoid from the starter; open it up, and take a look.  These contacts are available from electrical motor rebuild places.

The suggestion also would indicate that the starter has not been consistent in its operation in the past.  You have to turn the key several times, before the starter engages...  If you have not had it acting up before - or if some repeated turning of the key has not managed to get the starter to work - then possibly the actual starter went out - and not the solenoid.

The solenoid is that device, mounted onto the starter - which has a small wire going to it; and a large cable from the battery going to it... before you remove the starter to check on the solenoid - disconnect the negative terminal of the battery please.  Batteries carry a tremendous amount of energy.  Hope this helps.

Let me know what it was.  Thanks.

Help my 1995 Dodge ram 2500 will not start.

Hi cotboh7 If this truck rolled off the ramp I would check the neutral safety switch. You could also check that the shift linkage is set properly, also back to that starter, sometimes they give no indication at all, this happened to myself recently, parked the truck came out nothing, it was the starter in my case.But that has nothing to do with the truck rolling in park, and the neutral safety switch is for just that purpose, which is why it must be in park or sometimes neutral to start.I hope this helps,good luck to you.
