The starter in my 2001 Beetle wouldn't engage whentrying to start. REPLACED THE STARTER AND STILL DOES THE SAME THING, ANY CLUES?


When you replaced starter did you notice the condition of the
flywheel ring gear? My guess is the ring gear is very badly worn or somehow the positioning of the starter is such that it is off enough
that it runs into the ring inside the gear. Did you hit something in the road before this symptom started? Any chance someone tried to jack up the car and used the starter as a lifting point?
Accident? Are you sure it's your original engine? Ie they used to be very easy to change. Any other thing that would bend the mounting point on the engine? If manual transmission, try to move the engine a little by moving the car with clutch engaged.
If Automatic try to move ring gear with a tool if you can get to it.
If this action is sufficient to move the ring gear into a "good" spot
and the Starter will engage, you now know you have a few bad spots.

My 97 buick lesabre will not engage the starter when I turn ignition to the start position. The starter only has the positive cable and a purple wire going to it. I can manually apply the 12 volts to...


If the anti theft light is on,turn the key to on and wait until that light flashes or goes out,(may take 20 mins)then it has relearned the key code.Hopefully that's all it was that prevented power from completing the starting circuit,which includes the neutral safety switch in addition to the ignition switch and anti theft module.Also try putting it in neutral and try to start it.

Wont start. Starter tries to engage but theres a "whirring" noise instead of the car starting


Sounds like starter solenoid is failing to kick in. The whirring is most likely the starter motor turning, but the teeth aren't engaging on the flywheel ring gear due to failed solenoid.

Daughter's 1995 altima manual will not start regularly. It will not crank, but not a battery problem. please give several suggestions so we can try a fix. thanks


This sounds like a possible starter problem, considering the age of the car. The solenoid switch may be defective or the bearings in the starter motor are worn out , causing the starter to not engage. Do a load test on the starter when you engage the starter switch. Require a test meter.

It's not a toyota tacoma it's a 90 Lexus ls400


Your starter drive is staying engaged. Either the starter has failed, or your ignition switch is keeping the starter engaged. Try moving the key back from "start" while the noise is occurring. More than likely, the starter is the culprit.
