Test the battery while cranking the starter. hold key in start position and watch meter voltage drops below 10.4 volts bad battery if good then clean both cable ends and battery posts still clicks use the negative cable on the jumper cables go from battery to engine block if starts then negative cable bad no start have someone hold key in crank position as you strike the starter with a hammer not too hard if starts replace starter.

First make sure battery is charged if so then then check the relay in the fuse box under the hood find the relay that marked "ing" pull that relay then find a nother one to inter change with it, if car still wont start then ou will need to see if the in line fuse on the starter wire is good or blown if its good then you will need to pull the starter and replace it. hope this helps you

Check the battery first. Or try jumping it. Battery may not have enough juice to turn the motor.

SOURCE: cranks but wont start ,sputters

Hi!!It sounds like your fuel pump is not working. Check fuel pump relay on engine compartment fuse box have somebody to turn the ignition key to the RUN position, DO NOT CRANK ENGINE (feel if the relay clicks when the key is turned, it will only be energized for a couple of seconds and then you should feel when it gets de-energized. if relay is OK, remove the fuel tank gas cap and repeat the same key operation, listen to the fuel pump coming in, again this will be running only for a couple of seconds, try a few times until you are sure one way or the other. If fuel pump works, then replace fuel filter and try to start vehicle. If vehicle does not start. You need to check fuel pump pressure. borrow a tester form Autozone or similar auto parts store. The fuel pressure should be between 30-40 psi with key ON engine OFF. If pressure is off either way, replace fuel pump. Here is how to hook up the fuel pressure tester 1kbron_71.jpg

Thats bull. The key only authorizes the start sequence, ie starter relay, not the starter! Is this the original key? Go somewhere else.
