Replace the starter as you have a armature/commutator problem
have it checked on the bench at an accredited auto electrical shop commutators/armatures can be bought separately to reduce cost of new starter

Truck wont start


Starter fluid won't work if the starter won't turn the engine over.

Get the battery load tested...it may not have enough juice to start the truck but have enough to light up the lights

check your fuses and battery connections at the starter. Is the anti theft light flashing? If it is that's your problem. Wait 10 minutes insert the key...wait for the theft light to go out before trying to start.

if that doesn't work you will need to get the starter checked...which means you will have to take it off.

Why am I having problems starting my Bravada. There is power, the started worksb, but when I turn the key nothing happens.All the dash board lights come on but no starter engagement?


do the dashboard lights go out when key turned to start? when you say nothing happens,is there a click? does the motor turn over,but not fire? is it an automatic,meaning is the gear inhibitor switch preventing starter from working?have you tried a jumper battery?putting a jumper lead from the battery earth to the engine ground helps sometimes,if earthing cables broken

My 2000 bravada oldsmobile wont start is it the sartaer


It depends upon what actually happens when you turn the key. If the engine turns over, but doesn't start, it is NOT the starter. If all you hear is a clicking sound, or the starter motor engages but doesn't have the power to turn it over, then it could be wither the starter or the battery. A quick and easy check when this happens is to turn on the interior light. If, when you turn the key and get the click or no activity, the interior light dims way down or goes completely out, it is probably the battery. If you turn the key and get nothing at all, things are more difficult. The interior lamp test should be performed. If the light goes out immediately, try the battery. If the light doesn't flicker or dim at all, then the problem could be the starter, the starter relay, the Park/Neutral Position (PNO) switch, the ignition switch, or the IGN E (Fuse 22) or IGN A (Fuse 34) fuse in the fuse block under the hood.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

Wont start acts like a dead battery wont even click when trying to start, had the battery checeked and charged still wont start 2001 town and coutry


Could be the starter. Check the cable from the battery to the starter. If that's o.k., on a level surface (so it won't roll very far) Pull the gear lever down in drive and try to move it forward a little. If the starter is bad the armator or the bendix may move enough to engage. Try tapping the starter lightly with a hammer. Some towns have shops that will repair a starter cheaper than you can buy a rebuilt one. Check the price first though.

I have a 2001 Dodge Neon. Barley had a month. Daughter left lights on all night. Had to get a jump. Started , but all my gauges were either flutering back and forth, or just not working at...


if the starter is clicking, try tapping on it with a hard piece of wood, like that of a hammer handle, while someone tries to start the car. if it starts, replace the starter. also make sure electrcal connectins on the starter are tight and clean. and check the starter relay if applicable
