Check the wires to your starter, if there all good then you may have a bad starter and need it replaced. Good luck and keep me posted.

Where is fuse for startermoter


There may be a fuse for the ignition system, but not specificly the Starter itself. Do you hear a "click" when you turn the key? If not
are you sure you have a good battery? Do other electric devices work? If you hear a click when turning to start and a good battery, You have starter solenoid problems. Is this a diesel? Could be the Starter motor Brushes. While somewhat hazardous, can you jump the car and get it started? Autoparts stores will help check battery and other electrical problems if you want to do it yourself. Otherwise you need dealer or reputable repair shop. If diesel engine (and fuel) I'd go to the dealer.

Interlock solenoid


Sounds like a dead starter...try this: get a helper to hold the key in the start position. While they are holding the key to start, smack the starter with a small hammer. If it starts, you need a starter.

1993 volkswagon passat VR6 wont start


Sounds like a blown fuse or wiring problem.
A mechanic would check to see if the starter will crank with power direct from the battery, then look for power to the starter from the key switch.

Replaced motor, 1st no oil pressure to guage, but motor seems to have pressure,2nd,replaced radiator, drove 6 miles round trip town and back, flushed radiator,then started and ran motor for couple min,...


As to the oil pressure check your oil pres. sending unit for power with a circuit tester while vehicle is running replace if necessary. First check the fuse for the fuel pump if it has powere on both sides when key is on check the fp relay (when you power a relay if you listen closely or put your finger on it you can normally hear or feel it click which is the equivalent of turning on a standard light switch) if none occur replace or if you can access your fuel pump check for power with key on if it has power but does nothing the pump needs to be replaced

My 93 acura legend wont start. Ticking sound??


That sounds like a dead battery. The ticking sound is the relay (a type of switch) which enables power to the starter motor when you turn the key. If the battery is weak, the relay will click, but there is not enough power to turn the starter motor.

ENGINE SOMETIMES RUNS, BUT WONT GO OVER TICKOVER. ALSO SOMETIMES IT WONT START


Had same problem with my '94 passat vr6. Started ok then nothing then ok again. Thought it was the coil pack 'cause there was no spark but that didn't solve it. Turned out to be the ignition relay in the fuse block.

New battery car wont start


may just be a loose terminal. I had mine replaced and it took a few hours before it ran right again. something about the electronic modules take a little time to recharge.
