Engine will not turn over no electrical then a few minutes later electrical comes back on

When I try to start my truck its like there is a dead battery. Checked battery and its fine. after I try to start the truck, all electrical goes out for a few seconds. after a few seconds electrical is good. I can hear a clicking sound coming from a relay box under steering wheel. twice I have gotten the truck engine to turn over and start. once I was tapping on this relay box. I've been told that it might be the starter, any ideas?

The very first thing you want to check is that the battery connections are clean and tight! If that does not solve your problem, check where the ground cable attaches to the engine. This does not sound like a starter problem, (that would be a long shot), so check other connections first. You might have the battery load tested... NOT just for voltage.

SOURCE: no start condition new battery , good starter,

no starter relay is always at the fuse relay box at the engine compartment. The relay that you hear is the relay for the accessories to turn off the power during starting position.

SOURCE: Taurus 96, electrical problem, clicking sound, engine cranks

close, there is an emergeny fuel shutoff switch hidden in the trunk of these things burried under the carpeting, you probably have something resting on it OR water got on it and is shorting it out, my friend had a 92 taurus 3L and the switch was in the trunk, 14 inches off the trunk floor on the drivers side wall, should be a small **** in the carpeting you can push your finger through and feel it.

SOURCE: starter works but wont turn over in the car 1992

Here's a maybe answer. You keep changing the starters and testing things and it's not working, here's something you might want to consider.

It might be the ignition switch itself. IE where you put the key in, you said you turn the key and nothing happens. I would suggest that it might be the ignition switch. But since i don't like ford to much i wouls suggest this as a maybe only, not to familiar with ford. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ranger making clicking sounds but will not start,

Hello. My name is Mike,

Let me see if I can help you. When starting a car and you hear a click every time your try to start it, most the times it is only a couple issues to cause this. Number one and most common is the connection (wire) from the battery to the starter / solenoid is not getting a good connection which means, when you turn the key it is breaking the 12 volt circuit to trigger the solenoid which then triggers the starter to start the motor. Now, sense you say you have a good battery and you can start the car with jumping it, this tells me, it most likely is not the starter. In process of elimination there is only two things left where this problem lies.

Number one: Make sure the cable-wire (ground and positive) that goes from your battery down to your starter is clean and the connections on both ends are tight.

Number two: The second and only other place that normally would cause this based on your symptoms and the fact you can jump it, is the solenoid is not working correctly that is part of the starter. Most cases if this is the case, you would have to replace the starter.

I hope this helped you, and if you can rate my free advice accordingly, Thanks Mike from Fixya

06 Colbalt Electrical System Dead


I would go to the positive terminal on the battery anjd check for black hard build up on the post and inside the terminal. This is lead sulphate and cause a high resistance to any high current flow. Clean both with sand paper until shiny and refit and tension properly. Do the negative also as it will have build up but to a lesser degree. If the battery lead runs through a connection box Check for tight connections there also. As to towing most towers have a wheel rack that fits under the tyres and lifts them clear of the road so it can be taken to to a shop.

Help! I have 98 Saturn SL2 that was live one minute dead the next


Sounds exactly like my 1999 SL2 which had "burning and arching" in the fuse box. Car one day be fine the next I'd take it to the store, come back in 10 minutes and wouldn't start, no radio, no power windows, no keyless entry remote, no rear defrost and even locking doors from inside power buttons it sounded odd. This fixed the problem by replacing the fuse box.

I turn the key and the car goes dead. 1994 rodeo.


It does sound as if the battery is dead. If you are sure your battery is good, you may have a short in the starting circuit.

Car Won't Start


If the car is dead, it should not make a sound, this is normal for dead things. Get a live one.
