    try replacing the solenoid on the starter, there also may be another solenoid mounted on the side fire wall, replace that too

Double check all your ground cable & + connections for clean, tight & in good shape. Sometimes just loosening them & wiggling them, then re-tightening will get better connection. Try moving shifter into neutral when this happens also, as well as turning key to start as you move shifter slowly through all gears to see if it try's even for a second to turn over. If moving shifter gets any sign of a kick over, it's probably safety neutral switch.

If you have automatic trans, test neutral safety switch. As last resort, wire up a push button from battery + to starter solenoid.

it sounds like you may have a bad starter solenoid and the extra voltage from the jumper vehicle is enough to complete the circuit through the solenoid to allow the starter to turn over.sometimes the solenoid contacts get very dirty and can`t complete the circuit on its own without a jump.i think these have a bosch starter system on them and you can replace the contacts only in the solenoid.

My 01 did the same thing, it was the main relay in the fuse box. Try taking the headlight relay and switching it with the main. If that fixes it might want to keep a few on hand, my most recent relay went out was the c/fan which in turn overheated the engine and the fan melted off the motor.

Very possible. It would seem that the starter is not fully engaging, perhaps due to ice buildup. If possible, park the car in a heated garage for a few hours to thaw it out, otherwise, you will need to remove and clean, or outright replace the starter.

1997 Nissan Quest wont start


If you tried jumping it and it still doesn't start, then it's not your battery. There may be a problem with the solenoid/starter. Try tapping the starter a few times with a metal object (tire wrench or something), but not too hard. Then try starting it again.

Mercedes vito 110cdi starter motor problems. only when the van


Hi as it starts with a jump start, i would rule out a starter motor problem, i am taking it that what you mean by a jump start is your using a donor battery rather than pushing the van, so possible causes are (1) battery discharging due to a light left on, or the alarm system draining the battery or something similar, (2) alternator not charging the Battery, when you turn the ignition key does the ignition light come on, does it go off when the engine starts?

02 pontiac sunfire won't crank at random times


Hi, I had the same problem with my girlfriend's 97' sunfire, it wouldn't start so I jumped the starter terminals which I think screwed it up even more (causing the theftlock light to come on). It turns out this is a common problem that can be solved by hooking up a GM Tech2 scanner, going under "body" codes, and following the instructions for bypassing the PASS LOCK SOLENOID. Hope you find this helpful, Byron
