Car wont start


Could be the linkage between the lock cylinder and the switch, or the trick was just a red herring and had nothing to do with the problem.
Will it crank in neutral ? Do you have power at the starter ?

Starter ok no blown fuse. all lights working but it wont start. anti theft light blinking fast os soon as you turn it to on. what is the problem.


it is the microchip on your key.. you have to reset the key by sticking it into your ignition and turn it to the run position for 5 mins. at this time the light should stop blinking then turn your key to the off position for 1 sec. repeat six times then your last attempt the car would start guarantee.... notice: as you turn the key to run position the light would blink rapidly for 5mins.. right when it stops turn to the off position for 1 sec.. remember six times..

Wont start,the starter sounds like it kicks out but the motor won't turn over


The solenoid on the starter could be bad. The solenoid has a contact in it, when power is supplied to the solenoid, the contact powers the Bendix to kick out the starter drive and also contacts the starter itself to make it turn. The contact to make the starter turn is bad, they are copper contacts, and over time, they don't make good contacts anymore. You'll need at least a solenoid, easier to get another starter.

I have a 2003 jeep liberty..Jeep runs great .Having a start issue.It started when it was cold.The bendix would stick and stay inengaed for a second.as it got colder it was louder sounded like i was holding...


try shimming the starter , it sounds like it is a tiny bit to close to the flywheel and is binding, causing a tinny or metal to metal sound.
dosent sound like it needs a very thick shim .probably no more
than a thousands or two. hope this helps

Volvo xc90 key will turn from 0-1 but wont turn from 1 on to start the vehicle, all lights and radio goes on but the key wont start the car???? all of SUDDEN


Ok, this just happened in our 2000 V70. The key would turn to position 1, the srs light pops on, but the key refuses to turn to start the car and the shifter is stuck in park. I pulled the oil dipstick out, lightly coated the key on ALL sides, inserted it back into the ignition and turned it a little forcibly. It turned so I cycled it back and forth a few times and it was good to go. We were stuck so this was a last ditch attempt to get going....I would suggest using clean, 3 in 1 oil to lubricate the ignition.

Car wont start just a click but its starts after turning key hundereds of time is it the starter ??


The starter would be a good place to start, it could be the Bendix. Take it off and take it to a parts store, they can test it for you at no charge.

Nate, I'm not sure what you mean when you say,"I can get it to whine but not turn over. The starter is trying to get it to turn, but I don't think it is getting any gas".

Separate and aprt from not getting any gas is the fact( if I understande you correctly) that the motor is not being cranked by the starter motor. You say "it whines". You are referring to the starter motor, right? the starter motor should not "whine". If this is what's happening by guess is the Bendix spring in the starter motor is broken. The bendix spring is a heavy spring that is mounter on s worm gear in the starter motor. When you go to start the motor by turning the key the starter motor turn and the spring travels down this worm gear and engages tthe geared flywheel and cranks the engine. As soon as the engine starts the flywheel is now turning the bendix spring faster that the starter motor and the spring kicks back to its original position. If the spring is broken it never engages the flywheel and the engine wont crank.
The fact that you say the starter "whines" is what I would expect you to hear if the starter is at fault.

As far as no fuel flow there are 2 ifs: if you have an electric fuel pump, then there is a problem in the fuel flow. If you do not have a electric pump then the fuel pump runs off of the engines motion and since the engine is not cranking, the pump is not pumping and the fuel is not flowing.

Anything else you can add before we conclude that the starter has to come off?
