If this occurs under all conditions (warm or cold) then probably not. It could be your ignition switch, battery connections etc.
Most common cause of what you are experiencing is the ignition switch. Best of luck.

Nissan want crank replaced the starter got a new Battery only a clicking sound nothing more


Perform a voltage drop test on + starter cable and - cable. Verify for acid corrosion on both cable also verify power and grounds at the starter relay, so the starter relay its working correctly! Verify when you cycle the key to "crank" you have " power signal" at the starter! The "power signal cable" its the thin one that. plugs directly to the starter.

1989 nissan pickup 4 cylinder when i turn the key to crank the engine i hear a click sound at the starter what could the click sound be?


could be battery . It needs a huge amount of charge to turn over the starter motor. It may work the headlights but be unable to turn the starter motor.
Suggest get battery tested at a battery seller to see if battery is really ok .
The click is most likely the solenoid on the starter motor clicking on.
You might be able to get someone to run jumper leads
Note +ve to + ve and negative to negative !
from their car while the engine is running and their car is not moving !
Wait 10 minutes
Then try to crank over your car engine .

I jump started a 4wd vehicle a month ago from my car and it took about 10 minutes to get enough charge in it to crank over the engine !

Engine will not turnover


If you are hearing clicks when you turn the key and if you know where the starter is, get under there and tap it with a hammer. Sounds archaic but when they start to go bad they stick. When you turn the key, the starter acts like the old hand crank you see in movies to spin the engine. When you release the key the starter believes it did its job and goes dormant. Anyway, if you hear clicks when you turn the key and if it starts after hitting it that is likely your problem.

Gmc will not crank or turn over. Changed Starter and relays. Not what sure do next


Listen closely for a hard "click" sound at the starter motor when turning the key switch for crank. If it clicks, check the contacts of the thick cables at the starter, battery and grounds at the chasis and engine. If it doesn't click, the the problem might come from the key switch or its wiring.

NO START 1999 CAVALIER


If the click you hear is from the starter solenoid mounted on the starter, it could either be a bad starter or poor connections between battery and starter. Raise the hood and listen closely near the starter for the click, when someone turns the key to crank. If the click is from the starter solenoid, have starter tested or replaced. If click is from a relay under the hood, then the start circuit will have to be further diagnosed.

My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it


Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer

98 chevy cavalier 2.2 will not crank. It's not the starter or battery as lights, dinging chime, and fuel pump engage...I turn the key and silence.


It sounds like the solenoid isn't sending fire to the coil while cranking. When cranking the voltage comes to the coil from the starter to by pass the coil resistor. Once cranked it starts going through the resistor to keep excess voltage from frying the coil.

Why it wont start even the battries new??


Does the engine crank/roll over? If not, and you havenew batteries and your hear a click, then it's your starter, the unit need to be replaced in order to work. If the engine roll over/crank but does not start, then it's either eletrical, or fuel. First sit in your car and put the key to "On" not acc position and try to listen if you hear a slight hiss follow by a slight click,thump from the back of your passenger seats. If you do, then the fuelpump is working, and would 97% be your ignition coil which is located inside the distruburator and needs replacement. If you don't hear your fuel pump from the rear passenger area hissing follow by a click, then your fuel relay might be bad, and try to swtich your relay around with another compatible relay. If nothing is heard after so, then your fuel pump is fried, need to replace fuel pump.

My '97 Geo Metro LSi will not start. When I turn the ignition key on the buzzer, idiot lights, lights, horn, etc., everything electrical will work. If I turn ignition key to start, there is absolutely no...


It could be the starter, test the small wire going to the starter, it should have power when turning the key to start/crank. If it does, and the starter will not crank the engine, whack it with a hammer, if it then starts, replace the starter. If there is no power to the starter, then it could be the ignition switch, or the neutral switch, or a fuse/link blown.

1988 Doge Ram will not turn over.


check your starter relay in the power distribution center. if you are not getting any crank. with a test light or dvom you can check the small signal wire on your starter solenoid when the key is in the crank position there should be power on this wire. it sounds like you are not getting signal to the starter from the ignition switch
