Question about Cars & Trucks
Cables where hooked up wrong only on the vehicle needing jump started (78 Chevy Van) Van was started but then after it was shut off, will not start. You turn the key and silence. Starter/ solenoid checked out fine, replaced battery and now wondering if it could be an ignition coil or starter relay. What could be wrong?
Could be either one but the coil is the one that creates the spark but don't rule out wiring. I would have all 3 checked out

Could be one of two things.
1. Your starter motor is no good.
2. If you turn on your lights and try to start the car and they dim to almost black, then you need to check the battery connections.

SOURCE: 06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on
Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

Testimonial: "kellertech1?? i tried something new.. my batt. was dead after sitting for 5hrs so i jumped it & later unhooked the batt. & hooked the batt. back up next day & car started ok kinda a weak start but started. so can a starter drain a batt or where should i look for a short or could this be a weak batt. that tested good but 2 weak 2 start the car."
Check the neutral safety switch on the transmission. It should have three wires on the connector (if I remember correctly). There should be power on the Brown with yellow wire with the key in the crank position. If there is ground that wire and see if the van starts. If it does replace the switch. If it does not check the starter relay. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
