You didn't say where the arcing occurs. Wherever you see the spark is the mostly likely location of the problem. For example, if the arcing is in the ignition switch, change the switch. Etc.

Have a 2000 Chrysler 300 the battery arced out now it will not turn over. Have full charge (new battery )


Arced out? Arc causes high voltage. May have fried something especially if newer vehicle. Check starter relay. May need to call upon "the guy" to diagnostic test ..about $80 to hook to machine

Battery good but when key is turned it want say anytging


Hi, Here's another source of troubleshooting information:
http://www.silveradosierra.com/electrical/2003-silverado-wont-crank-t18318.html
Cut and paste that into your web browser, if clicking on the link doesn't get you there. This gentleman located his problem by confirming the Start Relay in the Fuse Box under the hood was working (clicking, this confirms the PCM is good also) when he turned the ignition key to start his truck. He observed slight sparking and arcing between the Starter Solenoid and the Starter connections and determined them to be corroded and the source of the trouble, resulting in the intermittent starting conditions happening. Once again, Good Luck.

Why wont my 2007 saturn aura xe not start with a full battert?


Sounds like the starter is bad take it out and take to a local parts house that checks them for free (they must be removed from vehicle). I state that but when you charge the battery you are sure battery is good? You may think the battery is charged but still not providing 12-13 volts. A cheap tester/ohm meter will reveal how many volts at positive and negative terminals.
