Usually means your battery is dead. If your battery is good then you have a flat spot in your starter motor. You can check that if you turn the crank a little and it then starts, you have a flat spot and it needs replacing or renewing.

Starter motor not catching


sounds like you need a new flywheel

2000 olds alero cranks then makes a metal grinding sound and won't start


You need to have your flywheel: replaced.Your starter motor engages against the fly wheel at the back of the motor. Every time your motor stops it tends to be in the same few positions (just the way things work) so there is more stress on some parts of your fly wheel than others. Because of this the teeth wear out on the fly wheel which means the starter can correctly engage on the fly wheel which is the grinding noise.

Car wont start or turn over battery, starter, sylinold, and fuses are good


this is the starter motor, locate the starter motor & whack it with a hammer a few times, try to start the car, if it struggles then whack the starter motor a few more times, this should solve your problem, I would advise however that before you attempt this procedure that your battery is at full voltage IE if its low, put it on charge for a day before you try this.

How can you tell if your starter is goin bad


A bad starter will kill a battery real quick. If you can find a DC amp-meter compare it to factory specs, or similar car starters. A bad starter will make a grinding noise, or give false tries where the starter spins free without engaging the motor. Of course, a bad starter will not spin at all, just make sure the relay is working.

Car won't start makes clicking noise when you turn key


The click noise is the sound of the starter SOLENOID clicking but not contacting to supply voltage to the starter motor.
Now a multimeter test will confirm if the solenoid is contacting and if so then the starter motor is faulty.
It can be due failure of the BRUSH in the motor or the commutator. If so remove the motor and confirm.
Also if the starter pinion is struck the solenoid will click and the motor may not turn.

Have you determined that the starter is getting the voltage/current at its terminals? It is unlikely that the starter seized after only a few months. If you have someone else available, have them hold the key to the start position while you hit the starter motor with a hammer. If the starter begins cranking, your problem is likely sticking brushes in the starter motor. If that's the case, remove the starter motor and disassemble to address the problem or get another starter motor.

Starting problems


if this problem persists then you could check a few things on it, like on the times when its not even making a noise when trying to turn the key, use rubber/wooden object and tap the starter motor but not touching the contacts on the back. if this amkes it spring into life then it will be your starter motor if this does nothing then it will be a dodgy battery supply. does it also make like a screaching noise while trying to start? if so then definitely your starter motor

The engine will not turn over at all


Possibly could be the starter. About the only this I can tell you to try would be to tap on the starter wile someone else is trying to start it. If if cranks, you will need a starter. This is the easyist way to check it without a machine.
