The contacts inside the starter solenoid that power up the starter are burnt, this is a common issue on this starter design, you can replace just the solenoid or just replace the whole starter.

I have a 99 plymouth neon that has power everywhere but when u turn key starter wont turn over there is no click sound or anything


It sound like you might need a new battery. What you need to do is remove the battery and take it your local auto parts store and have them quick charge your battery then apply a load test on the battery.


If your battery is OK. Then there are a couple things that could go wrong. No voltage from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Next is the starter solenoid has gone south faster than Willy Coyota can catch the Road Runner. If both are bad then each needs to be replaced or fixed. Also one more thing the alternator gone south. Get you can running and check the voltage across the battery while the car is running it should be about 13.8 to 14.1 volts. GB...stewbison

My 98 dodge neon will not start., when i turn the key i can here the solenoid click but the car will not start, the battery tested good. and all ther fuses were fine also. do i need to change the starter.


Try finding someone to help ya on this procedure. While another person tries to start it, lightly hit the starter and see if it starts to work. If it does start working, then the starter is defective. If it dont start cranking over then check your battery cables for damage, lose or corrosion. Good luck.

97 neon wont start i just hear a clicking noise in the relay area


1st check the connections at the battery for corrosion, clean and make sure you have a tight connection. Bring the battery to a parts store, they will check it's condition for free. It may be bad, and all you need to do is replace it. If they find it's not charged fully, bad connections at cables or alternator may be to blame.

97 chevy lumina wont turn over


The starter solenoid will click when the battery is to low to start the car. Have the battery charged and load tested to make sure it's good. Check the charging system to make sure the alternator is good. Check the wire connections at the starter. If either is loose, the starter won't work.
With a full, known good battery, turn on the headlamps and try starting the engine. If the headlamps stay bright, the contacts in the solenoid are bad. If the headlamps dim greatly or go out, the starter is shorted out and must be replaced.
Also try turning the crankshaft manually with a breaker bar and socket if you suspect that the engine may have seized up.

ase mechanic here, sounds like the starter is on its way out, will have to replace since you cleaned all the connections, but in the mean time try hitting the solenoid portion with some object and see if the engine starts. if so the starter needs replacing.
