Battery on my 2010 sonata reads 12v. but car will not start


First put a full charge in the battery...It takes about 13.5 volts to properly start you car due to starter load..Your 12 volt battery will show 12 volt no matter the state of charge..you must have it load tested...meaning how many volts the battery is putting out under load " starter engaged " a weak cell will cause failure of this test.. any of tne auto parts stores will test it for you...good luck

Hello, I have a 1987 Jeep Wrangler (Sahara) and the jeep will not start. I have taken the battery to an auto parts store and they have indicated that the battery is still good. They advised me to jump...


First, you cannot accurately determine a battery's condition unless it is fully charged, otherwise all test results will be incorrect.
If the battery was in good enough condition to pass testing without a re-charge then it should turn the starter though. You need to check all connections and determine where the power stops. Make sure to verify that the grounds are also good. Begin by testing to make sure or verify that power is getting to the starter (use a volt meter) You should have 12v at the large terminal on the starter and 12v at the small lead next to it when the key is turned to the start position. If you get that, the starter is bad.If you don't, then you need to check the starter relay, neutral safety switch and main fuses in the power distribution center. Ignition switches can fail but not too often. I'd also check to make sure you can turn the engine by hand (with key off) just to make sure it has not locked up.

I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee sport and it just won't turn over. It has full power inside and a brand new battery.


You need to begin testing at the battery using a volt meter. Power requirement of interior is far lower than the starter needs. Check battery for 12v, check that posts & terminals are clean and secure, Check starter relay in the power distribution center, make sure grounds are good at the engine end. Check for 12v at the starter main terminal and 12v at the starter trigger wire with the key in the start position. (if you have both, likely starter has failed,) if power only at main terminal, re-check relay, and also test neutral safety switch and ignition switch.If no power at main terminal go back to the battery and re-test everything between again.

Turning key to start and works some time, roll key back and forth


"Most everything" does not tell me what you checked. You need to test the battery for good clean connection at both ends of cables, starter relay for power coming in and out with key turned to start, trigger wire on starter (also in start), neutral safety switch (again in start), and ignition switch itself. If there is power at the trigger wire on starter when you turn the key, change the starter solenoid or complete starter.
All tests are invalid if battery doesn't have at least 12v and can withstand a load test of 200amps for fifteen seconds and will return to 12v immediately after test. I can't tell you what has failed, but if you test each item I mentioned you will find the problem.

My 1994 Jeep Cherokee Country - 6 cyl 4WD is clicking and not turning over. My battery is a few years old and I replaced the starter 2 years ago. I have been told that it may be the solenoid.....any...


First, do not assume anything. Check the battery with a volt meter and make sure there is 12.v or better there. Clean cable terminals where they contact the battery, check both ends of cables for good clean solid connection. Since you hear a click, that is good ...ignition switch etc is likely good. Check the voltage at the starter : large cable should have 12v, small wire should have 12v when key is turned to "start" position. If you have both, starter has failed. Some Jeeps have an additional starter relay inside the power distribution center near the battery. if you have voltage at the starter, the relay is good. If when you test battery, voltage is low, have it charged and load tested. If battery fails test, no other tests are valid.
Once started, check for running voltage of at least 12.9v with all accessories and lights on. At no time should voltage drop below 12.5, or should it continue to creep down. If it does, the alternator may be faulty.(providing belt is good and tight)

Car will not crank


Check battery voltage should be 12v. Have battery load tested. If good recharge, then with a voltmeter across battery terminals try to start engine. If battery voltage drops below 9.5v starter has failed.

95 explorer on start it just clicks . relay and battery are ok can you help me to next steps


Always start with good clean secure battery terminal connections also check other end of both wires for same. Check battery with a voltmeter. Check trigger wire on relay fro 12v when key is turned to start, check main wire on starter for 12v with key on start. Check battery voltage with key on to start if voltage drops to below 9.5 starter is bad. Before changing starter, make sure you can turn the engine by hand (with key off) If you can't, don't bother with starter. Before beginning any testing battery should also be load tested to make sure it has amperage as well as voltage capacity to start car.

06 commander that has full power(all dash lights are on)but just clicks one time when trying to start


Dash lights draw so little that you could nearly run them with a couple of good flashlight batteries...Your starter draws more amps than anything else in the car. Check your battery connections and clean them. check actual battery voltage to make sure you have at min 12v. After making sure you have good power check power at the starter main terminal, starter relay and small wire on the starter (should have 12v when key turned to "start". If you still have a problem after testing post back.
