    check for loose connections and it is possibility that starter motor is "stuck" - few taps with hammer (not "whacks"!!!) usually release solenoid and allow it to function, if not, then dismount starter motor and check it on the bench, maybe brushes, maybe solenoid on it, good clean and new brushes or solenoid if needed will then be in order, but check first if you have electricity flow to the starter motor and if it is going out as well.. check for lose cables... hope this will help you at least a bit...

You should start with checking your starter motor fuse first, then starter motor relay, then starter motor itself...

spark should be logical choice as second...

you should not randomly change the parts and waste your money...

Bad connection battery cable or battery cable is bad or starter is bad ! the best way to find out what's wrong is by doing voltage drop testing with a volt meter ! Starter Circuit Voltage Drop

Car died at light, tried to start then clicking noise. car started on a jump. then replaced the battery & altenator. later on driving car again. car dies at light tried to start then clicking noise...


Did anybody bother to actually TEST the charging and starting system or are we just replacing parts? This whole thing COULD be caused by something as simple as a bad battery cable connection.

I would recommend reading the following articles:

Tried starting car after work and it would not start got a jump and it strted right up but all the lights and radio were flickering on and off during the drive home. I get home and try to start it again...


It cold still be the battery if you didn't let it run at least 15 minutes between starts. The problem you get with a battery low on fluids is a dead cell situation which will give you these symptoms. Now, the problem itself actually sounds like you have a bad voltage regulator which is shorting. You can have the Alternator and voltage regulator tested, the two are built together in your model so it's a one stop test. Make sure all your battery cables are good and tight and clean, if they are corroded it will do this and it will do it if it is loose. Make sure you actually physically check the cable because if the corrosion got under the protective cover it could have caused the wires to basically break in the cable. (Doesn't happen often but it can) If the alternator checks test the battery, they can test both at Auto Zone, Advance Auto or Pep Boys so you get the part you need.

if the alternator is good and the battery new then try a jump and see if it starts if it does not then this clicking sound is the solnoid on the starter clicking and the starter not engadging. the starter will need to be replaced.

Altenator is not charging the battery


sir , the altenator has 3 wires at the connector correct ? a white/red , a green/white and a black , the white/red wire is involved with a 10 amp fuse to do with the charging meter / gauge , the fuse located behind left side of dash .. the green/white wire is is involved with 2 fuses , a 10 amp ECU fuse and a 25 amp Main fuse located at left rear of engine compartment main box , and the black wire is involved with a main 80 amp fuse at the main box also . both of these 2 wires end up at the positive side of the battery , please verify all these fuses are good . if they are indeed good , then open wiring would be next step verify continuity on black and the white/green wires . i would post a link to diagram but autozone repair info site is down at this time . if ya need more help , please ask .

CHARGING SYSTEM


well for starters your altenator is bad because what it is dolinging is over charging the battery hence why it boiled off the water/acid in the battery. the regulater is intergrated into the altenator. there is not a short because numberone your car would not start and two your battery would explode. i never test a battery or altenator at a store like napa or Oreilly's because they are not mechanics ......they are parts guys. your altenator should charge the battery at no more than 14 volts and the average is 13.5 volts. you need to replace the altenator the reason why you are losing a charge is be cause as the car is running the battery is being discharged because the regulator is defective in the altenator. please rate this thanks

Vehicle.shut.off.when.battery.terminal.disconnect


that means your altenator is bad. replace it. the battery just starts the vehicle. the altenater is responsible for energizing the coil. soon as you removed the cable you cut the field the battery only supplys 12 volts however the altenator provides 150 amps for the coil. hope this helps you please rate...thanks
