Everything is supposed to go off in the start position. You would have power to the engine computer and other components to start.
If the engine is not locked up, it could be the starter or a bad connection with one of the battery cables.

Good Luck

If it is a single click, the problem lies in the starter solenoid or relay. If it is several clicks in succession, the battery may be low or there may be a loose cable. ---------- also try this :-- Please make sure the battery is fully charged before doing this test! Also make sure all the connections on the starter, battery and cable ends are tight and clean! this is important!! This won't be fun to test but it will tell you if the starter is good or not. Crawl under the car. (Make sure you use the proper jacks and jack stands!) find the end of the starter (not the end that is attached to the bell housing) and find the solenoid switch. it should have 3 bolts on it. Two large ones and a small one. The top large wire should be the positive battery cable, the bottom large wire should go into the starter and the small wire should be from the ignition switch. Take a wire and hold it to the top large wire on the solenoid. (be careful of the other end of that wire when you have it connected to the top large wire of the solenoid! don't ground this wire. it will turn out badly. take the other end of the wire and touch it to the small bolt on the solenoid end. If the starter is working, the solenoid should engage and the starter will turn. If this happens it is most likely the ignition switch. If the starter doesn't turn, the starter could be bad. ==== Starter Relay Test
Place transmission in Park.
Apply parking brake.
Check for battery voltage between starter relay battery terminal and ground.
Connect jumper wire on starter relay between battery and ignition terminals.
If engine does not crank, connect a second jumper wire to starter relay between ground terminal and good ground and repeat test.
If engine cranks in step 3, transmission linkage is misadjusted or neutral safety switch is defective.
If engine does not crank in step 3, starter relay is defective.
Follow this step by step and you will pinpoint the problem.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

SOURCE: when i turn the key

Battery is not charged enough to start the car. The clicking sound is the relay starving for power to turn the engine.

When i turn key to start dash lights come on but does not turn over is there a fuse or would it be the starter


You are going to do a few tests before we can say a starter failed. First do you hear a loud click in start position? If not go to starter and test for power. Large post should always have power. Small wire should have power in start position . If no power to small wire ,you're going upstream to neutral safety switch and ign switch. If it's getting power in start position, have someone hold in start position and tap on starter with a hammer. If it starts replace starter. If still no startcheck battery,ground cable for failure

Battery very weak
Alternator not working
Bad connections at battery posts, or bad connections on ground cable

If you can jump the car to start it, and it will stay running, take it to Advance Auto, Auto Zone, O'Reilly's, etc and have them test your battery/alternator.

Corsica won't start,


Start by checking the battery cables for corrosion at - to motor and + to battery. If all cables are good It will be the starter. the lights dimming while turning the key is normal. PS you can also give the starter a few good whacks with a hammer then try to start it.

When I insert key to start the car it will not turn at all. What is this part called?


The component is a starter. When you insert your key into the ignition and turn it, you switch on the power to the coil and vehicle computers. By turning the key to the start position it will supply power to the starter and solenoid which cranks the engine until you release the key allowing to return to the ignition on position. If the battery is weak the starter solenoid may engage producing a clicking sound, but it will not crank the engine. Another test is to turn on the dome light and try to start the vehicle, if you see the dome light dim when you are trying to start the car the battery is weak or the starter has a short. Starters are temperamental at times and can be intermittent working sometimes and malfunction other times. Your ignition switch, fuse, or relay could also produce symptoms of your vehicle not cranking.

DOME LIGHTS STAY ON ALL THE TIMEWHEN KEY IS OFF


Check the wires going to your starter.It sounds like you have a loose connection on the solenoid which is attatched to your starter.

Where is the starter located on my 2002 buick rendezvous?


a single click usually means the starter. multiple rapid clicks while the key is in start position usually means battery...if battery bad, could be due to alternator, but you likely would have noticed a battery light on the dash while driving before.

Won't start lights dim and then brighten


Did you try to boost battery? Sounds like low charge. Check battery terminals for tight and clean as well as groung connection at body and power connection at starter for clean. If battery OK test for power on starter wires. Large wire will have contant battery power small wire will have battery power when key is in crank position. If power ok on both it will probably need a starter. Hope this helps...Good Luck.
