SOURCE: My 1997 GMC Jimmy will not start, when I turn the

Did this happen after you put the new battery in?
I have run into where people just put a new Pep Boys or Kragen or whomever battery in and had issues afterwards. Soemtimes the terminals don't tighten. The bolt will be as tight as you can get it without stripping and the terminal can still be moved. The battery terminal hole may be too shallow not alloing the bolt to go deep enough.
Things will work until you try to start, The starter will draw a lot of juice and cause the loose terminal to arc and lose connection.

Now if this was happening before you replaced the battery then it may be the starter orits circuit. Hook a test light to the starters small "S" terminal and try to start. If the ight comes on its a bad starter. If no light then you need to trace that back. Manual transmission should have a safety switch on the clutch pedal. Automatic will have a neutral safety switch on the transmission (right side where the gear selector hooks to).

But that sudden loss of power makes me thing there is a loose connection arcing. If not at the battery then check the under hood fuse and relay panel.

My 2001mazada tribute has been sitting for six months when i try to start it nothing happens not even clicking.I have charged the battery and have power to the car but still does nothing


If you're not getting any kind of a click with a turn of the key it sounds to me like the starter is not getting power. If you turn the key to the start position and don't hear anything, not even a click it's usually because the starter is not getting power, or it has seized. Try swapping the starter relay with another similar relay to test it. If that doesn't do the trick, remove the starter and take it to any parts store to have it tested for free. (it is also possible that the battery only has enough juice to power the lights and not engage the starter after sitting for six months...I know you said you charged it, but if you happen to take the starter to have it tested, do the same for the battery.)

Try the spare key.
Dodge introduced in-key chip around 97.
The transponder may need to reprogram.

Check the factory window stick to verify is the system is in you vehicle.

98 Expedition starter


When you do try and start the vehicle does the lights in the car go out or dim? Like it is sending all juice to the starter? Might have someone knock on the starter a little with a mallet or small hammer and see if it is stuck. could be a loose wire on the starter solenoid.

Nothing happens when turning key on toyata mr2 mk2


If you have power to your lights and radio, try tapping your starter, more specifically your solenoid that is attached to your starter, and hopefully that will free it up and let you start it. If you do not have any power, then double check your battery to make sure that it has enough juice and cranking amps... Let me know what happens, and I will see if I can help some more...

It wont start turn key dash lights up nothing happens


sounds like a dead battery to start with. Not even enough juice in the battery to energize the solenoid / brake interlock to get it out of PARK. Hope this helps

Won't start getting nothing when i turn key


Recheck all your connections, battery. starter, look for fuseable link on small wire going to starter. Might want to chk.that wire with test light when key switch is in start position and see if it lights. If it does not light might be starter switch under dash on steering colume.
