Sounds like the Starter Solenoid has a problem. Replace it.

It’s your solenoid that is getting hot and the engagement washer inside is what is sticking. There is some heat shield material you can get from the auto parts store to shield you solenoid.

I have a 98 Saturn SL1 from time to time it would not start, it wouldn't even try. I knew the battery was good. It turned out to be the cranshaft position sensor.

I have seen many ign switchs. Check to see if the theft doesn't flash when you try to start. It is still posable that the starter is going. Have someone crank the engine. Check for power on the purple wire. If there is power and the it does not crank. Check that the big wire has a soild 12 volts. You can use a screw driver and jump the purple and the big 12v battery at the starter and it should turn on if not replace the starter

Turn key all light come on as a normal start. but when key is turned nothing happens. no noise nothing.. keep trying and eventully starts.Sometimes 3 or 4 times.. Sometimes 10 min. later. it can be days...


You didnt list the type of car this is, the most common thing that causes this is the starter, i just had a saturn, the customer had the same problem we told her it may be the starter but cant be 100% sure until it actted up, she didnt want to replace it unless we were sure, so we kept and drove the car around for 5 days and finally the last day it didnt start and it was the starter , same problem turn key and nothing no noise and no start, i would have the starter replaced and go from there, its a mater of time before the car just wont start,hope this is helpful.

1999 saturn sl2 sometime will start sometimes wont, engine wont even turn over after driving and then park has to sit and keep trying to get engine to turn over any suggestions


In all your years of driving, you never experienced this?

Bad battery
Bad starter solenoid
Bad starter
Battery Cable Issues
A long list of neglected, preventative maintainance items on engine.

I'am not trying to be sarcastic here,but you know the vehicle has to go to a repair shop, to be diagnosed,or you got to start using your knowledge and skills to solve things,then if you get stuck, someone will help you
No one can diagnose over the phone or internet,you need the vehicle

Won't start, well if it sits for awhile then it starts, then you drive it around and it drives ok, then when you park it and turn the engine off it won't restart, then it sits for awhile hours i mean then...


Most likely your starter. The heat from the engine heats the starter, and a hot electric motor is not as strong as a cold one. I had the same problem on a 1985 S-10, I had replaced the starter about a year earlier so I thought it couldn't be the starter. It was.

Some auto parts stores can test the starter (on the car), if you want to be sure.

My battery died and after replacing the battery nothing happens


Did you mean there is NO sound from the starter? The question says there is now sound from the starter. If it is a quick clicking noise, the new battery needs to be charged. Try getting a jump start for it or returning the battery, it should have come charged already. Not a good sign, these things sometimes bought new come with bad cells.

1995 toyota 4 runner starting problem once in awhile


Is the starter turning over the engine when it wont start or is nothing happening at all?
I might have your solution if I have more details.
If the engine is turning over but not starting then switch on the ignition and push it to start.If it starts you probably need a new ignition switch.

Please get back to me .Thanks

99 Saturn won't start


I would suspect the starter solenoid or the starter. I may be telling you something you already know, so if I am, bear with me. When you turn the ignition key to start the car, you apply 12 volt to the starter solenoid (which is physically located on the starter). The solenoid is actually a relay that applies 12 volts( at very high current) to the starter. Since you are not hearing any clicking when you turn the key, I suspect the solenoid. BTW, when you get a starter it usually comes with a solenoid already atteched.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh
