My 89 chevy caprice won't turn over tested battery and starter all good dash lights or radio won't come on headlights and interior lights work


Sounds like a problem with the key switch since the lights are not on a circuit controlled by the key.
You may want to check the main power feed into the key switch from the starter post. There should be two or three fuseable link wires coming off the starter post going to the key switch and the fuse box.

I turn the key to start & i get nothing


When you turn the key to on, do the warning lights and gauges come on normally? Any reason to suspect the battery is low? Has the starter motor performed flawlessly up to this point?

Without a voltmeter or test light, one's best choice is to take the starter off and have it tested. With a test light, check for power on the small purple wire at the starter solenoid, with the key held in crank. If power there, probably bad starter or solenoid. If no power, start checking the start circuit-power is lost between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid-clutch interlock switch or park/neutral switch may be the problem.
Battery cables, terminals, starter electrical connections, and ground screws: make sure all are good with tight clean connections.

No power to starter


At the starter key on or off make a quick connection with a screwdriver at +&-, if it sparks and turns over you need a new starter or solenoid.

I have a 92 sentra lights come on but when i turn key nothing happens. Starter good ,relay good, head lights don't dim when you turn key . Car won't turn over at all


If by lights, you mean the dash lights come on, then ignition switch must be getting power. If dash is not working with key on, check the 30 amp fuse link which powers the ignition switch.
If switch is good and starter is good, the start wire from switch goes to, if automatic, to inhibitor relay (the park/neutral function) and then to starter. There is also an inhibitor switch on the shifter or on the transaxle that turns on the inhibitor relay when key is on and shifter in park or neutral. The inhibitor switch is powered by a 10 amp fuse D.
If you have a manual transmission, the start wire from ignition switch goes to the clutch interlock relay and then to the starter. This relay is turned on by the clutch interlock switch on the clutch pedal.
You can check for power on either relay, the inhibitor relay or the clutch interlock relay, with a test light. Pull the relay out, have the key held in start position. Now both relays would have power showing on two terminals where the relay plugs in. If inhibitor relay only has power on one terminal or no power at all, either ignition switch is not sending power or fuse D is out or the inhibitor switch is not working right. If clutch interlock switch does not have power on two terminals either the ignition switch is not sending power or the clutch interlock switch is bad.
If the relay checks are good, check for power on the small wire to starter with key held in start. If you have power there, the starter solenoid must be out.

I got a 1999 chevrolet tahoe. when i put the key in the ignition the head lights,and the dash light comes on but it won't even turn. i change the starter and got a new battery and it still won'


well if you have a dvom/voltmeter check the power at the starter terminals. the main terminal should have power all the time the key wire should have power only when the key is turned to crank engine. if you have power at both then i would start looking at grounds

1990 stanza car can be pushed and clutch start car.When you turn key on dash lights come on cae will not turn over. put in new battery did not help


Do you get a fairly loud 'click' when you turn the key to 'start'? If so, you need a meter or test light to check if power appears at the starter terminal when the solenoid clicks. If power appears, the starter requires repair or replacement (usually the brushes). If no power appears, then replace the starter solenoid. Hope this helps!

Hard time getting car started..


The starter test at auto shops arnt always correct. In your car you have a load on the motor the auto shop doesnt. You could have barrings seizing up or a bad solinoid. Check the wires then get a starter ive seen the auto shops take people for rides. Ask people up there that have been doing the test for awhile they can hear it and tell you it will be bad before the out come and it will show good.But it is bad.

Wont start. when i turn the key all the lights work but it doesnt turn over. i can hear a clicking noise that comes from the relays


check your battery,and your starter
make sure the battery is up 12.4 volts if it is good then make sure you have power going to the starter,when you turn the key you should have power to the selnoid,if you have power there and the starter does not turn ,then the starter is bad.
