SOURCE: 1999 Subaru legacy will not start

Check your terminal connections, if they are loose they will need to be inspected for breaks. If they are broken you will need to replace the connection. Make sure they are clean and free of corrosion.

Other possible Problems
If the car wont turn over your starter could be bad.
If it turns over but wont start it could be any number of these problems.
Coil Pack
Plug Wires
Spark Plugs
EBX (Engine Brain Box)
CBX (Chassis Brain Box)
Crank Sensor
Fuel Pump
Fuel Rail
Fuel Injector

Good luck

SOURCE: My Subaru Legacy Outback won't start and the

Starters don't click.
Solenoids click.

So remove push-on connector from Solenoid wire.
Should be clean, secure & relay bracket grounded.
Connect a jumper wire between battery positive terminal & the exposed terminal on the solenoid.
If starter motor now operates then it's the ignition switch.
If starter motor does not operate then replace solenoid.

Check battery!

If voltage goes below 9 then battery needs to be charged

If headlights go very dim during crank battery needs charge

If after charge same result replace battery

Hope this helps?

Volkswagen Jetta won't start.


Sounds like you have a weak battery, or possibly a bad alternator. The fact that you were able to drive it for 2 days before it died again leads me to believe that it is most likely the battery. You can test the battery by looking at voltage across the terminals when you try to start the car, if it\'s less than 12 volts your battery needs to be replaced. If your battery is more than 5 years old it should be replaced anyway. Good luck, let us know how it goes.

I am the type that likes to jump start a car to troubleshoot it. If you jump start the car and it starts that tells you that the starter and engine is good and the problem is in your battery or alternator. If it doesn't start then I take the serpentine belt off and try to turn the engine with a large wrench. If it rotates, then I replace the starter and starter solenoid.

It sounds like you probably have a shorted battery cell. This will not only cause the repeated clicking that you described, but it will also rob power when jump-starting from another vehicle. There is probably enough power when jump starting to turn the starter over, but after the starter take the power that it needs, there is not enough power to operate the computer system....so I have no doubt that you probably are not getting any fuel. The computer has to tell the fuel pump to run. If there is no power for the computer....I think you can figure it out from here.

Replace the battery and try it again.

Replaced battery, car won't start, engine warning Light comes on as well as "system check" light


The problem might be the starter. If it was a faulty alternator that was the reason the battery died it should start with a new battery, then eventually die. Check and make sure the wires on the connectors for your battery aren't corroded through (wouldn't expect this on a 2006, but who knows). Does it make any sound at all when you try and start it and do the any of the lights (head lights or dashboard) go on? If they do your battery is providing power. If it makes a grinding sound when you try and start it your starter is gone.

It sounds like you need a new starter. If you hear the starter click when you turn the key to start, replace your starter since you already replaced the battery. You might want to have your alternator checked out, or when you get your car started, test the battery terminals with a multimeter. You should have around 14 volts with the car running. If not, you will need a new alternator. The alternator won't keep the car from starting though, unless the battery was drained because it wasn't charged. Even then it is the battery keeping the car from starting.

If the starter is not clicking, check your fuses under the hood. If all checks out, you may have a bad ignition switch.

When trying to start my 1991 Plymouth Sundance America I hear only a clicking sound. I replaced the battery but it did not work. Can it be the alternator?


sounds like you have a bad starter.not your alternator.if the battery is good the car should start even if the alternator is bad.you can even drive the car until the battery runs low.the alternator job is to keep the battery charged.soulds like the solinoid is clicking.but no responce from the starter.have starter checked.
