Your fuel pump may have taken a ****, Undo the intake and spray something explosive down it, brake cleaner or something else, Just a few sprays not too much and see if the engine will kick over, if so, you may want to drop your tank and look there.

Car will not start starter checked out good what else can I check


The battery. Now if the car does not even crank and the starter is good, then I would recommend checking some fuses and relays. Some fuses to check would be the ignition, start, etc. For relays I would check the starter relay and the neutral start relay. I would also check neutral park switch on the transmission. If the switch isnt working properly then the car wont start at all.

My 2003 dodge grand caravan wont start. All dash board lights work, radio works, and windows rolls down. Starter has been replaced and still nothing.


Is there power at the cable at the starter? Check for grounds by putting clamp from your test light to the negative side of battery & probe the cable at the starter, starter & solenoid, sounds like the solenoid isnt engaging, but if the starter motor isnt cranking either bring the starter to the auto parts store & have it bench tested.

My car wont start battery is not dead,but wont turn over?


if the battery is fine check if you hear a clicking noise coming from the starter motor when you turn the key to try and start the engine.
If you hear this noise then this is a good indication that the selenoid has failed meaning you need to replace the starter motor.

You can give the starter motor a hit with a piece of wood as some times this will get the starter motor working just to start the car but this isnt a permanent fix and could leave you stuck if you used the car.

Now if the starter motor isnt clicking but you hear a clicking noise coming from either the cars fuse box or the ecu when you turn the key to start the car then this would indicate a problem with the imobiliser this would need testing using a diagnostic machine as their is no other way of testing this to find out if its at fault.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

My 2001 dodge intrepid wont start it turns over but wont start, it sounds like the flywheel isnt catching the starter but when we took the starter in, it passed all tests but the solinoid test which they...


try turning the engine by hand and giving it another try...if able as the starter is out of the way look at the teeth on the flywheel make sure they are not chewed up. if so there is your problem and a big job to replace that...if not just buy another starter and give it a try...your old starter my be having problems engaging the teeth...

Kia spectra wont start


it is probably the starter assuming the engine isnt locked up. I would check to see if you have battery voltage at the starters solenoid wire with the key in the start position if you do i would check the fuses and starter relay
