Question about Saturn SL2

1 Answer

Similar issue I had my friend ''jump start'' my car after the ignition failed to turn on whatsoever. I didn't even hear so much of a click. After a few minutes, we heard a click as we tried to start up the car, but it would not. It seems like the gas gauge is still receiving power (it should be shut off when the car is), and the clock is still on. Power windows, locks, lights, and overhead lights will not turn on either. I did not leave anything on in the 6 hours I had it parked, so I don't know what caused it.

You may have issues with wirings. check the ground if there are anything loose. Check your battery using a voltmeter. The battery may need replacing.

lister for a clicking from the start motor you may need some to help you. if you or your friend hear the click on the starter motor then the motor and it does not turn the engine or goes crunch like its engaged but does not turn,It will need replacing or fixing, if no click this could be the starter relay or the ignition switch or you have a lose wire tot he relay.

Clicking sound when ignition turned off


I had a similar issue on my Nissan sentra years ago. In my case it was the fuel injectors clicking because a diode in the cars computer had failed. It would only stop when I pulled the fuse for the injectors under the hood. You may have a similar issue. On mine it just sounded like a regular clicking under the hood. Very loud with the engine off

Why won't my 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara start?


ill answer for NO ELECTRICAL POWER :
sure and is easy with any DMM meter, got one? any $20 DMM.
my guess;1
engine will not crank
dash lamps out.
head lights out. dead.
post systems of electrical system , all parts that work and those that dont work, and problem is easy.
cleaned battery terminals.
tried borrowed battery that reads, 12.6vdc ? (charged is 12.6)
2012 that is in warranty car.... ?
my guess on 2012
jumping a car, that is battery jump starting.
a battery can short, and no jump start on earth will start shorted battery in car. but does lay down some big sparks, or burns up cheap walmart cables.
if the car will not crank, say just that, my starter motor will not crank
jump started from live running other car.
if true then make sure headlights work , if they dont work fix that first.
HL must always work, even keys in pocket.
best is to put a fully charged battery in the car, jump starting can cause
surges that can damage sensitive electronic$$$, do jumps as a desperate measure,
with a charged battery,
1: Head lights work, no fix that , use voltmeter
2: cranks robustly.
no , wiggle shifter lever, (on A/T cars the park switch blocks cranking) On M/T the clutch blocks cranking.
with any dMM
measure battery voltage before crank and during.
12.6v good. reseted.
cranking.
0 to 10v bad (weak battery or shorted starter motor)
11 and above good. and must crank, if not , starter is bad.
to prove starter is bad, check voltage at starter solenoid coil wire lug.
it must be at 11v cranking , below 8v it chatters, and fails.
if at 0v cranking this lug that means the Key start line is failing.
A/T switch not closes, or bad ignition switch.

Car won't start. I tried to jump it with my other car and still wont work. It makes the electrical noise of trying but thats it. I suspect is the battery, eventough I change it last year. However, I'm


Hi Carmelogo, It would sure help to know more about your problem. First question is what car is it? Secondly when you say it makes electrical sound, what do you mean? Is the starter motor turning, and if so, is it tuning too slowly or just clicking? If it's any of the those I would suggest cleaning the battery terminals, especially if it fails when jumped. If the terminals are oxidized they will need to be removed from the battery and cleaned or maybe even replaced. If the vehicle then starts with a jump and later fails after taking it for a run replace the battery

Clicking/hard to start


Hi!!
When you turn the ignition key to the RUN position and the engine turns over slowly or do not turn over at all and all you hear a clicking noise, it means the battery is drained, Jump Start vehicle and take it to an AutoZone, Checkers or similar AutoParts and have Starting/Charging system checked, they do this at no cost to you.
Good Luck!! Keep me posted!!

(ENGINE won't TURNOVER) Just a "click" then nothing...


How old is your battery? 1st thing to check is connections at battery and starter. Make sure there is no corrosion, clean connections with fine sandpaper, make sure connections are tight. If dirty or loose connections exist, you won't be able to start or jump your car. If connections check out ok, pull the battery out and bring it to a parts store for a free check of it's condition. If it's bad, again, you may not be able to even jump start it. If battery charge is good, and condition ok, check your starter. You can also get a free check if you remove it and bring it to a parts store for testing.

Engine won't even turn over


Have the battery charged and load tested. Many times you can't "jump through" a failed battery or one that is extremely low. Once you can start it, have the charging system re-tested and if OK you will need to check systems for excessive draw with ignition off.
