I have a 2005 Toyota corolla and yesterday we went out and the car was parked and turned off for an hour. When we went to start it everything but the engine would start. The lights the radio the heate


You are saying that the starter motor is not working, that the engine is not cranking over, even with a boost?

If so, then either there is a problem in the starting circuit between the ignition switch and the starter, or the starter is bad. There is a way to check the starter on the vehicle: the starter will have 2 electrical connections. One is the positive battery cable, and the other is a small wire connection to the starter solenoid, mounted on the starter. The key should be off, the brake set, and the transmission in park or neutral. Use a small jumper wire or a small screwdriver, and jump the battery cable connection to the solenoid connector. Take off the solenoid electrical connector if you need room to do this. With key off, the engine won't fire and run, but if the starter is good, then jumping those two connections will make the starter engage and spin the engine over. (Of course, if key is in ON, the engine should start and run.) But you are just checking starter operation, so keep the key off. If starter is good it will crank the engine over. If jumping the two connections causes nothing, then it is pretty certain the starter motor or the solenoid is bad, and you need to replace it. (Take off the negative battery cable from the battery first to remove the starter from the vehicle.)

If jumping the starter caused it to operate, the starter and solenoid are good, and there is, again, a problem in the start circuit from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. It could be simple like an electrical connection (like the one right there on the solenoid), or a component in the circuit between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid, like the neutral safety switch for example. You will need a wiring diagram and a multi-meter to diagnose further. Good luck, and hope you find the problem. Are you sure your battery is still charged up good?

2006 Polo Classic engine doesn't cut out when key is turned


this means you have feed back going into the ignition circuit or power flowing have you installed a remote start? to find out which circuits are causing the issue pull one fuse out at a time when the car keeps running this will give you a starting point it could be a stuck relay to wires melted together make sure the key is off when pulling the fuses

After releasing the ignition key the car will not stay running?no check engine lights on to verify a problem..


It can be short in the ignition switch connection causing this problem.Get the ignition switch and its connection checked and confirmed.Also check the starter connections.May also be a mix up in the starter wiring? Run a temporary wire from the battery to the plus side of the coil then start the car and let go the key. If it keeps running it is either the starter or a wire open or crossed. Also it can be the ignition key switch. Any way you need to check that you have continuity to the coil with the key in the on position. You can use voltmeter to check the continuity.y in the on position. ---------That's it.

Engine won't crank or seem to get power on key turn.


More than likely, your starter has gone out. If the battery is fully charged and its not even turning over, that is what i would start with.

1999 Toyota Corolla CE. For about 2 months, the engine does not start immediately. I need to turn the ignition key several times until it starts. Each time when I turn the key, a clicking sound happens...


it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,

Engine won't turn over


Hi,

I would interpret your post of "engine won't turn over" as it would not crank. Basically, cranking is accomplished with the starter motor, however, there are other components that could likewise affect the cranking:
  • battery, battery terminals, battery connector, battery ground to engine;
  • starter motor, bendix, starter relay;
  • ignition switch, ignition wiring/harness/connectors.
In some instances, failure to crank could also be caused by:
  • immobilizer/alarm system;
  • automatic transmission not in park or neutral or gear position switch/sensor misaligned/malfunctioning.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls check above itemized parts, post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

95 F150 wont crank


the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.
