It looks like you have a fusible link burn or open circuit
with a test light find out witch circuit is missing.
the starter have direct current from battery and ignition current to starter solenoid. maybe the problem is ignition switch or wires

SOURCE: I have a 2001 GMC sonoma 4.3 v6 that will not turn

Try another starter and also try turning the crank bolt with a ratchet and socket to make sure that the crank isn't frozen in place. Do not leave the keys in the car when doing so. You don't want anyone messing around in the truck when trying that!

SOURCE: STARTER WILL NOT CRANK OR CLICK

first is the truck automatic? or manual transmission, this information is important to know because the neutral switch on the automatic plays an important place on the starter circuit, and on the manual trans, the clutch switch does the same, also make sure you have not aftermarket alarm on the truck because that will interfer with starter cicuit, and to test the ign switch just test every wire close to the swtch and you suposed to get power at least on one cable while trying to crank it,

SOURCE: replace starter on 2002 GMC Envoy SLT

check to see if the starter itself is getting a signal to crank. youll need to use a test light and have someone else try to start the vehicle, while you probe the wire to the starter to see if it is getting power. if not, check the starter fuse to make sure its not blown, as well as the starter relay to make sure that is good too (very common on gm's for bad relays) if the fuse and relay are good, but your not getting signal, it is an ignition switch problem.

SOURCE: when starting does not want too start everytime

ok after you get it started, you want to check your alternator so while it's running unhook your postive side on your battery, an if it quits running then its your alternator.

SOURCE: My 2004 envoy will not start. A couple nights ago

Check the connections at the battery. Loose connections or corroded connections will cause this same symptom.

It is not uncommon for side terminal batteries to also have a problem internally between the mounting button (the place that the cable end bolts to) and the internal connection to the battery.

What sounds like what is happening is the connection is good enough to power up a light load, dash lights, gauges, radio, etc, but when a heavy load is demanded the connection heats up and looses continuity.

I see this issue more on fords but I have seen a fair amount of GM's with this issue.

Rv won't start. starter just clicked rapidly after replacement, battery tested good. Dash lights (high beam and Turn indicators ) light when ignition switch is un start position


Poor connection either at the starter, battery, alternator, or loose engine ground strap. Fully charge the battery also.

2006 crysler sebring wont star but head lights and interiorior lights come on but the radio doesnt!anybody have any idea


First check your battery. If it is not fully charged then you need to give it a full charge and then have it checked to see if it is good. If the battery is bad that is your problem. If it fully charges and tests good then it is most likely your alternator. If that checks out then I would check the starter......unless it is turning over ok.

Car will not engage its stater only clicking no turnover


Turn the head lights on.
Try the Starter. See what happens to the lights.
If they stay bright (or dull slightly) the problem is in the Starter. It will have to be removed and checked.

If the lights go out or go VERY dull, the problem is either a faulty battery or bad connection on the battery or the earth lead.

1991 Toyota Pickup - wont start....battery is ok


faulty starter relay, faulty starter, faulty starter switch, (not to be confused with key switch), how do you know your battery is ok? it could lose its charge overtime/have a dead cell, might have enough energy for lights, but not a high draw thing like a starter. Make sure your battery has 12.5 volts, 13.5 volts being nice and fully charged. check battery connections at both ends, battery and starter ends.

Why won't my 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara start?


ill answer for NO ELECTRICAL POWER :
sure and is easy with any DMM meter, got one? any $20 DMM.
my guess;1
engine will not crank
dash lamps out.
head lights out. dead.
post systems of electrical system , all parts that work and those that dont work, and problem is easy.
cleaned battery terminals.
tried borrowed battery that reads, 12.6vdc ? (charged is 12.6)
2012 that is in warranty car.... ?
my guess on 2012
jumping a car, that is battery jump starting.
a battery can short, and no jump start on earth will start shorted battery in car. but does lay down some big sparks, or burns up cheap walmart cables.
if the car will not crank, say just that, my starter motor will not crank
jump started from live running other car.
if true then make sure headlights work , if they dont work fix that first.
HL must always work, even keys in pocket.
best is to put a fully charged battery in the car, jump starting can cause
surges that can damage sensitive electronic$$$, do jumps as a desperate measure,
with a charged battery,
1: Head lights work, no fix that , use voltmeter
2: cranks robustly.
no , wiggle shifter lever, (on A/T cars the park switch blocks cranking) On M/T the clutch blocks cranking.
with any dMM
measure battery voltage before crank and during.
12.6v good. reseted.
cranking.
0 to 10v bad (weak battery or shorted starter motor)
11 and above good. and must crank, if not , starter is bad.
to prove starter is bad, check voltage at starter solenoid coil wire lug.
it must be at 11v cranking , below 8v it chatters, and fails.
if at 0v cranking this lug that means the Key start line is failing.
A/T switch not closes, or bad ignition switch.

How do I know if I need a starter or alternator? 99 dakota 4x4 and when I turn key it clicks without turning over


The problem may not be either. The first thing to do is to make sure your battery is fully charged, if the battery is fully charged then you have either a bad connection or a bad starter.
If the battery is not fully charged the next thing to do is to get the battery fully charged and have it load tested to see if you have a bad battery. Most auto parts stores will do this test for free.
If the battery checks out then your problem is most likely the alternator but before you just replace it have it tested too. You could still be looking a just a bad connection.
One thing that often gets over looked is a weak or bad grounding connection.

When I turn the key in the ignition the car won't start and the starter makes no sound. It has a new battery and a new alternator. What I can I do besides set it on fire?


You may have a bad starter, the best to determine this is by testing for power at the starter,also the battery is new but is it still good and fully charged, you may what to make sure battery is fully charged first, then test starter with a test light, there are two connection at starter, one is a battery cable this has power at all times then the small wire,this should have power when key is held in the crank postion,have someone hold the key while you test. if theres power at both connections then starter is bad, heres a diagram to show you where to test starter.5eb28af.jpg

I have a 2003 dodge durango v8 and the motor will not start. When I turn the key the engine makes no sound at all. The lights in the interior work, as well as the keyless entry. Is this a battery problem...


The problem is most likely the starter, but you should ensure that the battery is fully charged before proceeding. The battery doesn't need to be fully charged to run just about all the interior lights and the head lights, but attempting to crank the engine is a large current draw, and can drop voltage quickly on a partially discharged battery.

If the battery is fully charged, continue to checking the starter.
