I have a 95 honda civic ex,wont start.ran fine yesterday,wont start this morning.battery is fully charged,new cap and rotor.would do u think might b my problem

if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

1994 cadillac deville no crank

The PATS security system would prevent the engine from cranking if the system does not "see" the right chip in your key. If the system is working correctly, the light should go off after you turn the key switch on.
You should have power on the small starter wire when the key switch is in the start position.

1991 dodge ram van wont start

To clarify - the engine cranks then starts.
If it won't crank in any gear, I would check the neutral safety switch first.
You can also jumper the starter solenoid to make sure the starter will crank the engine manually without the circuit from the key switch.

1986 dodge d50 wont start just clicks. Pulled starter off and when I jump it from the battery it will spin.

turn motor by hand to see if its locked up if it turns then you have a weak starter if motor doesnt turn then you have a serious issue could be a timing chain problem or even a valve issue or motor needs rebuild or replaced

Check and make sure the battery is good,have it load checked,then check the battery connections to make sure they are clean and shiny.No grey or black residue on the battery connection,or the battery terminals,where they go on the battery,this will act as a insulator,and the battery will not get charged up enough,or put out enough amps to crank the vehicle,if it still does this ,with all this checked and corrected,then the starer is defective,replace the defective starter with a new one.

Starting help

have you checked the battery and the cables?
put a wrench on the crank pulley,you should be able to turn it .that would rule out the engine is not seized.
a click like that can result from a bad connection on the battery.
jumpstart it being careful about polarity and put the ground on the engine,not the battery
