Car wont crank


Hi Ray:
I'd start by doing a power check from the battery to the starter,
- Battery - charged, connected, terminals good, wires good, ground cable connected to engine/frame?
- Heavy red wire connected to solenoid, and from solenoid to starter?
- Solenoid function check - small terminal to positive - if it works then check power source from ignition switch - if it doesn't, short across thick wire terminals. - if it works then solenoid is the problem.
Reply as a comment to this post to get back to me.
Cheers.

1999 plymounth voyager wont crank an wont start


well first thing to check is the battery working. turn the headlights on. do they light up bright. dim would me you need to charge it or replace it. if that's not the issue the starter will go and that makes the engine turn over when you use the key. the igniton or shifter could be another problem try starting it in neutral if you suspect the shifter cable. my guess is the battery. or the connection for the cables to the battery. but need to check and test stuff

I have a 1996 Geo Metro LSI car won't start, no clicking noise but lights come on


  • sure it won't crank the engine , starter motor just clicks !
  • try using jumper cables, and crank, off a running car.?
  • Fuses all good.? test them?
  • battery terminals clean, never green?
  • A/T transmission? did you wiggle shifter, as you crank it.?
  • a/T trans, did you try starting in neutral?
  • M/T trans did you press clutch pedal harder as you cranked it over? (repeat say 3 times, see if this makes it crank)
  • try a good battery from a good car? in your car.
  • charge your battery. using a battery charger..
  • Does hot wiring the starter solenoid , make it crank over?

Car ran fine until I pulled into driveway. After I turned off ignition it wouldnt start again.


Have the battery tested and clean the battery cables. Just because it reads 12 volts doesn't mean it can supply power under a load.. Autozone and others test batteries for free

My car wont start the battery is fine dont know what the problem is please help


IF the car cranks over but doesn't start you need to see if you have Spark and Fuel. IF it doesn't crank, check starter and related circuit, tapping on starter will sometimes help to get it rotating. Check all fuses, and make sure battery terminals are clean and tight. Have someone or yourself connect a scanner DTC reader and see if you have any engine computer faults. If manual transmission make sure your clutch pedal switch is not missing the bushing. Aftermarket alarms can cause no starts also, but usually a "no-crank" situation.

I have a 04 sedona. back in july the van didnt start so it did with a jump. after that it started when it wanted to so i replaced the starter. today it dont start tryed a jump got nothing. pt it in...


Could be a miss aligned switch try wiggling the shifter in park the next time it dose not start to see if starts.Also dirty battery cables will give you the same crazy makes no sense problems. Clean both the post of the battery and the cable ends and make sure they are tight. Your car needs a completely charged battery (14.2volt at the ignition) to start, were as the radio and other electronics, locks, windows, etc. only need a few amps. .

1992 Toyota Camry won't crank


Check the ground cable going from the battery to
alternator, then to chassis. Make sure there is no
rust at the chassis ground wire terminal, and that it
is very tight. The fusible link will be off the alternator
red power cable,usually, but not 100% on that car.
Good luck.

2002 Dodge Neon wont start


Check the battery connections. If they are dirty, corroded, the lights will work, but there won't be enough connection to crank. Also, if the battery is getting old, it could be going out as well.
Clean the battery terminals with a batt terminal brush- also clean the cable ends.
Charge or jump start your car and run for a while.
