It is absolutely the starter solenoid im not sure if you can replace just the solenoid but you definitely need a new starter / solenoid.

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

Hi Linda, I'm glad to help!
If I'm reading you message right, your cars battery is going dead and you must jump start it to get it to run. Here's the thing, a cars battery and alternator can be just fine. BUT, the system can still have a draw coming from somewhere that can draw all the power out of the battery and thats why you need to jump it. This can happen intermittantly as well making it almost impossible to find the draw. If this is whats happening then your mechanic will need the vehicle for awhile to find the draw. I'm not there so its hard for me to say this is whats going on, but it's a good place to start diagnosis. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Linda!

Battery wont jump start


possible but my money is on a bad battery. have a load test done on the battery. I suspect that the over heating problem is not completely fixed as water pumps will still pump water as long as they can be turned . Probably all that was done was to tighten the drive belt . Unless the pump seal was worn out and you were loosing coolant.. Clicking noise when trying to start is bad connection or dead battery.

My VW golf TDi won't start since I changed my battery. It started fine for three days and now there is absolutely nothing there when I turn the key not even a click. Please help


1. Do all lights, accessories, central locking system etc in the car all operate normally.

2. Have you tested to see if the car starts when you try jump starting from another vehicle.

3. What warning lights were displaying on the vehicle a day or 2 before you had the problem.

4. Were you having the same starting problems with the old battery that you have just replaced.

If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Check everything with engine cranking. If your missing all three, check your crank sensor. Can you check applicable trouble codes?

If your saying the starter motor won't even crank the engine, that is a different issue?

Car does not start.


Yes, I would have the battery fully charged and load tested. Most local parts stores can test it for you. Takes a hour or so.
