Try tracing the positive wires from the battery. Also try a jump start with all electronics off. I've never heard of a vuka if you can identify the back of motor and front of transmission it will be sling that seam somewhere could have dust cover over it as well hope this helps

SOURCE: 2005 Jeep Grand Cherookee sometimes won't start

This could be something simple. Your starter draws far more power than anything except for the a/c clutch (not in play here) Since all accessories are functioning, it's likely that the battery terminals are oxidized. A high-draw item will actually break the connection temporarily. This condition will also change with humidity and temperature. Remove them and use a small wire brush or sandpaper to clean the battery posts and the inside of the connectors on the wires themselves. If you have done this and still have a problem, then you should start looking for other larger problems.
Good luck

hi from uk check the main lead from battery+positive to the starters solenoid is secure ? also there is a thin wire that also connects to solenoid on a terminal of its own this is the solenoid energizing wire that works starter when key start position is selected if all above is ok? then use a jump lead and connect one end to battery negative post then the other end of lead to a suitable earth point on engine ? then try starting? if it works/starts ? you have a bad earth connection to engine from battery negative lead check the earth lead connection at point on engine is clean/secure ? it usually is secured by bolt at point where engine and transmission connect ? hope this helps?

SOURCE: Wont start, gives error code IN 02 on dash

I had the same problem with my 94 jetta, I would also have the alarm turn on as I connected the battery, if you lower the fuse box being careful not to disconnect anything, there is a box to the upper driver-side aria(that is if you are laying on your back looking up under the dash) this is the alarm control unit, there should be a white label on the wires indicating so (think it says alarm in German) theres a 6 pin(wire) connector and a 10 pin. unplug both connectors and look at the 6 pin connector. There is numbers where the wires are located on the connector, if you take a piece of wire and "bridge" wires 5 and 6 (The largest wires on the connector, red/red w/black stripe) your starter should work, any problem with the alarm system can cause the starter to be disabled. after bridging the wires or simply connecting them do not plug anything back into the alarm box, after this you standard vehicle alarm will be disabled permanently, but you will be able to start your car. If this dose not fix the problem you may have a defective starter, hope this helps.

Every 6 months must replace starter.


Anon. Do you have to crank the engine over a lot to get the engine started, do you need a tune up? If it a factory stock engine and you are sure it is correct starter and installed properly (with shims if required for meshing gap), makes me think there may be a damaged ring gear on the flywheel/flexplate. Also make sure starter is quality part.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

2008 sl awd Nissan Rogue, won't start Battery seems to have power making a clicking sound may be starter, having hard time finding starter location.


Know this problem was posted several years ago, but having same issue with my 2008 Nissan Rogue. We've tried everything short of having the battery replaced, (including charging it), and nada. So, tomorrow morning, that'll be our next move. Sucks, but best thing to die. Much rather than than an alternator, starter or solenoid.

V-6. Car won't turn over though the battery is fine. No clicks or any noise at all. seems like an ignition problem. Ideas?


Sounds like you should investigate in this order--- Starter soleniod , mounted near the battery; next the neutral safety switch, on 5 speed cars this is located on the clutch pedal tree and on auto trans it is located at the trans. next, ignition faulty switch located on the lower/top side of steering column

When I turn the key everything works but the starter which doesn't seem to be getting any juice


Hi
Make sure the terminals on the battery post are clean. Use water and a little baking soda to neutralize acid. Disconnect battery first! Check for corrosion at the starter itself. If starter clicks when you try to start it then this is my guess. However, a dying battery can run everything fine but a starter needs alot of energy. Could be also a broken wire, poor ground, or starter solenoid. Good Luck!

I don't know what your problem is. I would suspect your solenoid as you suggest. It is easy checked with a volt ohm meter and a friend. (voltage always present on the battery side - voltage present on starter side when the key is turned to the start position)

Is this a manual or auto? I guess you know there is a switch on the clutch if it is manual - clutch MUST be depressed to start. Im sure you know this!

Check the solenoid. You could jump the solenoid with a auto grade jumper cable to double check your electric (volt/ohm) check.

Turning the key just results in clicking noises.


Those starters are known for problems see if can reach the top of the starter with a long screwdriver or extension tap on it while someone turns the car over if it cranks there you go.

Battery seems dead but lights and everything electrical seems fine smoke comes from battery if you jump it


Okay, what you seem to be saying is the battery does not turn over the engine and the battery smokes when you jump it to start it. But the lights and radio and everything works except the car will not turn over by itself. The battery smokes because either the battery has a short in it, it smokes because the starter is dragging, and/or the jump wires are not hooked up red to red and black to black. You need to have the battery and starter checked. If the car runs take it to an autoparts place to test. Or if it won't run take out the battery have it tested and if it is good, then take out the starter to test it.

1985 toyota van...fuseable link replacement?


Make sure connection at the battery is good and the connection to the starter.

It is probably the starter contacts that are bad. They seem to get this way especially if they sit for a while.

Here is a link to more info:
