Probably dirty connection on the battery.The headlights should come on bright, then dim only slightly when the starter engages.
Remove the battery cables and clean all corrosion off the terminals and connectors. The lead must be bright and shiny to make a good connection. Once you have checked and fixed the battery connections, and still no crank, find the starter relay and tap it firmly ,then try again. Still no crank, manually jump across the relay to 'force' current to the starter solenoid. Still no crank--replace the solenoid

1995 nissan 200sx when I try to start the vehicle all the lights are on but nothing happens,I can push start it but it won't start on its own,


First of all verify if all wires to the starter are tight. If yes then test the starting unit as follow:1. Disconnect the switch wire from the starter relay and connect a 12M gauge wire to its end on the relay. The wire must be long enough to reach the + pole of the battery.2. With the car in N, touch the + pole of the battery with the tip of the wire.3. If the starter turns then your problem is in the circuit from the switch to the relay. 4. Otherwise consider changing the starter.

Turn key and get nothing. had starter rebuilt. still get nothing when turn key to start. used a tester light...got power to starter. but when hooked to wire that hooks to cylinoid, light doesn't light up...


When you rebuilt the starter if you didn't replace the solinoid that is probably the problem providing the wiring was reconnected correctly.

Car wont crank


I have a 2000 Olds Intrigue that has the starting problem that some people have spoke about. You turn the key and all lights come on but the car will not start nothing. I 1st replaced the ignition switch which did not correct the problem. To get around the problem I have connected a wire to my starter and ran the wire up to the battery and when the car acts up I take the wire touch the positive pole on the battery post and the starter will turn over. I then get in my car and use the key and start the car. I have not been stranded by the car since. I try the key a few times if nothing happens I'll wait a few minutes and if that does not do it I jump the starter with my wire. This has been working for the last 2 years. It's not a correction but it is a work around.

New starter good batt. no voltage at the starter not even a click


Have to do some trouble-shooting first. With no click at all means their is no power comming from the key switch to the starter or no earth (-) to the starter.How to check power from the key switch. Look at your starter motor wiring their should be a main batery wire conected to it and more wires to the same conection. Then their should be one small wire connected to a different connector on the starter this is the power wire from the key switch. To check if this is the problem remove it then get a long piece of wire which will reach from the starter to the battery. Conect one end to the connector on the starter then touch the other end to the positive (+) pole of the battery. When you touch it to the battery you should hear a click and the starter will turn the engine. If it does then you will have to check the ignition system starting with the fuse then relay and key switch, It could also be a coroded connection or a broken wire in the wire loom, Check the earth if you get no click when you touch the wire to the battery. Follow the large wire from the (-) pole of the battery to the engine make sure all connections are tight and corosion free. To double check get a jumper cable clamp one to the - neg. of the battery and the other end to the engine (large bolt or metal) do not conect it to any pulleys (alternator etc.), This should get you sorted but if not let me know what you have tried and I will help further.

The car has power but starter just clicks when turn the key its not the starter i took it out and had it rebuilt and replaced the battery any help would be very greatful


The solenoid for the starter may have bad power contacts. Older GM starters had the solenoid mounted to the starter itself. If this starter has just a heavy wire going to it, trace the wire to the solenoid--listen for the click while someone turns the key. Check the heavy wire on the other side of the solenoid which goes directly to the battery positive post. A voltmeter or test light is a handy tool for testing for voltage around the solenoid and the starter terminal.

New battery just clicks once when key is turned won,t turn oven


check the ground to the engine, make sure the terminals are clean and tight on the starter and on the battery and have the battery tested.
24 months ago for a rebuilt starter is about the lifetime you could expect.
Did u change the battery cos' it was getting harder to turn the engine?
If the starter gets lazy (often a loss of windings due to varnish degradation) and hence a drop in power when activated. This wears batteries out and eventually the starter will fail. A lazy starter has that labored wuh wuh wuh sound instead of a faster regular sound
If you odnt find bad cables replace the starter.

88 Toyota Camry won't start


Had the same problem with an '88 Camry. Replaced the battery, distributor, and starter, but it didn't fix the problem. Then, a few years later, when the battery was getting old and tired, I replaced it with a more expensive _heavy-duty_ battery. That helped quite a bit. It didn't totally fix the problem, but made it a lot less frequent.

A mechanic I trust told me that non-OEM replacement rebuilt starters pretty much all have substandard wiring, with bad spots in the windings. A heavy-duty battery maybe cranks out enough extra amps to mostly compensate for this.
