Three possible problems - solenoid, starter or cable. I'm not sure what engine you have. I just replaced starter in mustang with 5.0L engine. If you have solenoid mounted on side of engine compartment; turn ignition to run position and put a screwdriver across the two large terminals (make sure you don't touch the side of the engine compartment). If starter cranks over then you might have a bad solenoid. If starter doesn't crank over then you may have a bad starter.
If you have a meter; see if you have voltage on terminals of solenoid. One side of the large terminals will have voltage on it with ignition turned off. If not then you have bad cable or poor connection between battery and solenoid. Pull cable off and clean terminal. Get someone to turn the ignition switch to the start position to see if you have voltage on the other large terminal. If you do then your solenoid is probably good. The next place to check is the starter; if you can get to it. Get someone to turn the ignition switch to see if you have voltage. If you have voltage then your starter may be bad and if you don't then you may have a bad cable or bad connection on terminal. If you replace starter make sure the mating surface is clean before you put new one on to ensure a good ground. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Car won t start


There are a number of reasons why a car won't start:
1. the car has a cranking sound (turns over) but will not come on
- there is no fuel
- the fuel pump needs checking/replacing
- the spark plugs need replacing
- high tension wires need replacing

2. when switching the ignition there is only a single click or no sound

- the battery is flat/needs charging or replacement

- a fuse for one of the ignition components is blown and needs replacing

Hope these help in finding the cause or getting a clearer picture of the problem.

Wont start


check the distributor & rotor arm & clean with fine grade sandpaper if required,
try this: check the fuel pump it should make a whirring sound when try to start the car, put the key in the ignition & turn it a couple of clicks but do not turn the car over, if you hear the whirring sound the fuel pump is working if not then change the relay for the fuel pump & try again, if you now hear the fuel pump working then turn the ignition off then on a couple of clicks then off again, do this two or three times then try & start the car, failing this it could be a problem with the coils, the spark plugs, the leads, or it could be bad compression in your cylinders. try all of the above before considering faulty cylinders/piston rings as this is very unlikely on a 7 year lod vehicle unless it has been thrashed & treated to a very hard life. please rate my answer, Paul.

2004 chrysler pacific will start sometimes but sometimes won't


I would suspect the fuel pump is the problem, it may be sticking at times and this causes a no start. The pump is located inside the fuel tank and it is electric.

Stop on stop sign engine died


If the engine won't fire up, but your starter turns over, you may want to check your timing unless you have a check engine light on. If the CEL light is on, have the codes scanned.

If the engine won't turn over with the starter or it clicks, have your battery tested at autozone or advanced auto parts. Replace the battery if it is bad. Else, have your starter tested.

If the engine still won't turn over and the battery and starter are tested fine, you may have a blown fuse, bad ignition switch, or a failed relay.

If the engine fires up but randomly dies and starts back up, you either have a failed sensor, failing fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, bad plugs or wires, or a failing ECU.

1995 geo tracker won't start. I've replaced everything except the ignition switch. It used to click when i turn the key, now it won't even click.


DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERY AND RECONNECT, THIS SHOULD RESET THE BRAIN.

ALSO...WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, LISTEN TO HEAR IF YOU CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP COME ON...IF NOT, GUESS WHAT? HOPEFULLY NOT!... BUT,YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP, IF YOU CAN'T HEAR IT WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, AFTER YOU'VE RESET THE BATTERY!

HOPE THIS HELPS!

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Listen to hear if you can hear the fuel pump kicking on when you first turn the key. You should hear a humming sound for a second or two. If you do, it is working, If not, it is not working. If so, check your fuel pump fuse, relay, and shut off button if you have one. It could also be bad fuel injectors. You can pour fuel into the intake, if it starts, you have a fuel issue. If it doesn't, it shouldn't be fuel related then. If these all check out, if you don't have inside power, it is a connection problem with the battery or a bad battery. If you have power and there is a clicking sound, clean the battery terminals and post, check the connection. Make sure the battery is good. If you turn the key and there is nothing, you have a bad starter or starter solenoid. Check your ignition fuse also. If the starter is not getting the correct amount of power from the battery, it won't start. Make sure the alternator isn't draining the battery as well.

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.

Check your fusible links (wires that act like a fuse). The fusible links are located on the battery post on the starter, and some are located on the positive battery cable.

Occasionally my 98 chevy P/U won't start. The fuel pump does not run. If I fool around with the Ignition switch I eventually get the fuel pump to run, then it will start and run fine.


The fuel pump only comes on for 2 seconds when the ignition switch is turned on until it starts.I would check the fuel pressure it should be 60-66 psi with key on engine off.Sounds like a weak fuel pump to me you'll know once you check the pressure.If its not within specs replace pump.

not knowing what kind of vehicle it is it is hard to tell. some gm cars and trucks have oil sending units that will not allow the vehicle to start unless it has oil pressure. they start going out and sometimes they start and sometimes they won"t.
