Daniel, If battery is known to be good, could be bad connections at battery, starter/solenoid, or ground on engine/frame, battery cables also could be bad with build up of corrosion internally. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

1998 Honda Accord Won't Start


Park neutral safety switch maybe be the reason for the no crank ! Try putting the vehicle in park ,then try to crank the engine . Testing the electrical circuit is the best way to trouble shoot this problem , along with do a voltage drop test on the starter circuit ! This will test the battery cables an connections .

Does it have a manual or automatic transmission ? Manual ? clutch switch . Looking at a wiring diagram I also see a starter cut relay !

I have a 2000 chevy silverado 1500. 3 nights ago, my truck started up just fine with no problems and has never had a problem starting up. The next morning, I tried to start it and the dash lights and radio...


do you have remote start on that truck? if you do, it has a hood safety switch that will keep it from starting if hood is open. That hood switch is quite easily identifyable. Look for it on the drivers side, either close to the firewall or right at the front of the fuse box.itsa worth taking a look

In the morning it wont start but cranks up with no problem in the after noon starter is less than a year old & battery is 4 months old please help me figure out what the problem is


Very weird - I had an older VW bug that was like that, but it was usually during the winter - so unless you're in Alaska right now, I don't see cold being a factor. Is there a possibility of any condensation/moisture settling on anything (electrical connections mainly) under the hood overnight (maybe it evaporates after the car sets in the sun for a few hours)? When you say it won't start - is it getting any juice at all or just clicking/dragging like a dead battery or starter? Or do you mean it just won't fire up - like maybe it's flooded or has an ignition issue?
Check for a good/clean connection on your battery terminals.Make sure it's on good & tight, then try to start the car - if that's not it. Get a jump, then go to Auto Zone, O'Reilley's, etc and get the battery & the starter checked. I'm betting it's either a poor connection, bad battery or your starter is going out (or possibly the starter relay switch). Also consider getting the alternator checked. If it's going out, then it's causing the car to run more off the battery vs. charging the battery up while you drive. Sometimes when one of the three (battery, starter, alternator) is going out - it can cause all three to act up or also eventually go out. And it's frustrating, because any one of them can test test ok right up until the minute it just dies. Sometimes (if you can afford it) it's better to just replace all 3 at the same time - at least then you know they should all be good. Start with your connections - that's the easy fix.
If you have juice, but the car just keep turning over without firing up - consider a good tune up or get your injectors cleaned up. To prevent gunk from building up in your fuel system, consider using a fuel additive from time to time. I use B-12 Chem-tool or Marvel's Mystery Oil. You might also get a diagnostic run on it & see if any codes pop up - maybe a chip freaking out somewhere. Good Luck.

My grand am wont start. when i try to crank it turns over slowly without ever starting, which turns into to like a grinding sound that gets slower and slower until i am left with just a click click click...


Dear Sir,
As you said when you try to start sound come and end it with a click click sound it clearly symptoms that battery low and as you said light are also dim, if you charged battery same problem you have, then check wire which run from battery to starter is lose or not and 2nd wire which runs from battery to body ground if both are ok, then sir it is problem in starter motor armature is short with body, replace that or better replace full starter assay.

Car won't start. It turns over and clicks fast, but nothing. Dad says it may be the starter, but I don't know where the starter is to tap it to see. Can you help?


Right side, down under. You say it turns over? if it turns over, the starter is working. Turning over and cranking are the same thing. It either CRANKS or it DOES NOT CRANK. or it CRANKS but wont RUN. Explain things in these terms so theres no confusion.

Car will not start after engine is hot .Will not even turn over.


Hi,in many cases the starters dont work when they get hot because they are getting bad when it does not start ,try to start it by turning the key on and with a screw driver touch both cables at the starter to check if it start,
