1994 bmw e36 320i engine won't turn over or and no clicking sound coming from starter when i turn the ignition but all the light comes on what could be the problem,


The starter won't crank. If nothing happens when you turn the ignition key to the "Start" position, it means that the starter motor doesn't turn over the engine. Most commonly this could be caused by a dead battery; here is How to check the battery. ... The starter motor itself or a starter solenoid could be bad.13 Aug 2013

1995 taurus won't start


The dash lights coming on doesn't mean your battery is strong enough to turn the car over. That being said, I would lean towards the starter also. I would just have the battery chkd out before you go replacing other things just to be sure. Good luck to you.

Help me with my 1993 chevy cavalier 2.2L engine. My car won't turn on when ignition switch is in the on position. When I turn it to the on position, my radio cuts on, and my air conditioner turns on,...


what do you mean by "dash lights"? how do you KNOW the pump isnt working? how do you KNOW its good? at the ignition switch the ORANGE and PINK should have power in the RUN position the BROWN and TAN/WHITE should also be HOT in the run position. There should be a red wire near the fuel pump relay, make sure its HOT when cranking. IF its HOT and the fuel pump doenst run, the pump is bad. You can also put 12V on that red wire and power the pump.

I changed the key batteries for my 1999 BMW 323i after they died. Afterwards the remote unlock and lock won't work, the car also won't start but it can turn over/on and the radio and the lights...


stick the key in the ignition, turn it to the on position, remove it within 5 seconds, then hold the unlock button down and press the lock button 3 times within 10 seconds and release both buttons. The doors should lock/unlock to give you confirmation and your key should work.

Engine won't start


Test the battery first(make sure it's charged 100%)
There is single wire , not a fat cable , on the starter ,
disconnect it , then use test light , connect it to that wire on one side and ground on the other side.
Turn ign. key to start position and watch the light , if it's on - starter is bad , if it's off - ignition switch no good.
