Re: 1995 quest wont start
Either the switch or the nutural safety switch is bad or the wiring from the switch to the nutural switch or the to the starter solenoid is open or disconnected. Either trace wiring or test or replace switch(s).

Not the alternator. If the battery has a sufficient charge, the start should turn regardless of the condition of the alternator. Try using a battery charger to be sure battery if at 100%.
Are your battery terminals clean, no corrosion and attached tight?
If starter still will not turn, problem could be wiring or bad starter solenoid.
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.
Well the first thing that you must check is see if the battery is charging ,if the alternator is charging the battery enough,with a multimeter,if there is not enough power in the battery ,the starter will be hard to turn the engine for starting,hope that clear your mind and help you
new battery....or alternator.....try boosting it if it starts leave it running and remove cables... if it quits when u remove jumper cables then u need alternator or check its fuseable link ........if it stays running it was your battery and your starter was probably ok i...u didnt need to change it or both starter and battery were bad ....starters kill batteries when they are failing and start to draw too much amperage from battery ...another quick way to tell a battery is dead,,,,,,is to look and see if its swollen or bulging...tis the season for batteries and alternaters ;-) good luck
starter dosnt engage?(starter engauges but dosnt catch flexplate or flywheel, maybe dosnt engauge at all) barely turns over? (like theres no battery causing hard crank)
you can test your battery by starting the car with the headlights on, if the headlights go dim the battery is bad. your battery could be out of date or the alternator could be bad and not charging the battery.
check the alternator it supplies juice to the battery while running all the electrical needs for your car if your alternator is fine you might have a dead cell in your battery.take it to an auto supply store and have it checked out usually it's free.
you can replace the cylinoid,but I prefer to change the whole thing specially that it seems like starter drag when you buy the new starter the cylinoid will be built on the new starter,if you change the cylinoid itself,and you still need a starter youll have to buy the starter and cylinoid as one unit,and they wont take the cylinoid back that you broke,but either way I would pull the starter and bring it down to an autozone and have it checked for free,if this helps please give me a fix ya
