Try this procedure:
Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear or starting relay, Have someone bang on the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging the bendix gear..
Hope this helps.

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.

Starter wont crank on a 2000 oldsmobile intrigue


Check your manual if you have it. I believe you need to have the key in the ignition in the ON position for about 10 minutes to reset the security system.

My car wont start but all lights and dash come on


Lisa, how long was the key in the one position? For the heck of it, put the car in neutral, and try to start it. It's possible the neutral safety switch is bad, which could cause the problem. It should start in neutral if that's the problem. Let me know if this works, if not, I'll help further.

My 2005 auto 535d wont start or even turn over at all, the battery is charged and all the dash/lights etc come on although we did discover a pool of water in the battery tray (is this common?) but this...


Hi the problem your having is going to be with the starter motor if when you turn the key the cars engine dont turn over at all you might here a faint clicking sound as you try turning the key to start the car, if the car is totally dead and the battery is good then this indicates that the starter motor is at fault.

You could try giving the starter motor a few hard hits with an hammer this often frees up the starter allowing you to start the car but it might take a few hard hits just to get it working this is not a permanent fix doing this it might get the car started but after a while the problem will come back so replacing the starter is the only long term option.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I would go straight to the starter solenoid connector(under spare tire) and check for 12v signal while turning the key. If there are 12volts present with key in start...replace starter motor. This is the most probable and fastest way to check you no crank condition.Realy is under dash,driver side in the event you want to access that.

check for power at the starter and starter solenoid while someone holds the key to crank if it has enough voltage the starter is bad but make sure all connections for the battery and starter are good before replacing starter

1991 buick park ave wont start


Typically,fusible links protect everything but the starter. I'd check them anyway & they're down at the starter. Also,make sure the engine isn't siezed,3.8's freeze all the time. Yes,that would mean the engine is toast. Also the transmission has a clutch in it & it could be locked in the on position. You can unplug the 4 pin connector in front on the trans & see if that makes a difference. Write back if you need more help

1983 honda civic wont start now


hi have you checked the leads from battery to starter are secure ? also important that the negative earth lead from battery to the engine is also secure and in good condition on the starter you should have main cable from battery and a thinner cable both connected to solenoid on one terminal ? then a thin wire to a small push on terminal? this wire is the key start wire which energises the slenoid/starter
