Ok make sure all around you is quiet, have someone turn the key all the way on then wait 2 sec then turn off and repeat process while you lay on the ground by the fuel tank listening for the loud humm of the electric fuel pump. I do believe you may not hear a sound if you hear nothing comment right back we will trouble shoot your problem. But for now lets check fuel pump for operation at all thanks.

Ive been having to jump jeep, so i replaced starter and it wont crank over the battery is good and there is power to the starter cause it just clicks now

Mike- sounds like a possible relay problem OR you could have gotten a bad starter just have your auto zone guy test it for you if this is an older model the solenoid was separate from the starter in some cases Mopar in particular they would go out also I have been known to give the side of the starter a good thump with something heavy:-)

Why won't my c1500 1990 start?

Okay it says you checked starter motor and it tested good. what test did you perform? A bench test would tell you if solenoid is good or bad. Try this With starter in vehicle and key on, jump positive power to solenoid it should spin and engage flywheel and start vehicle

I turn the key to start & i get nothing

When you turn the key to on, do the warning lights and gauges come on normally? Any reason to suspect the battery is low? Has the starter motor performed flawlessly up to this point?

Without a voltmeter or test light, one's best choice is to take the starter off and have it tested. With a test light, check for power on the small purple wire at the starter solenoid, with the key held in crank. If power there, probably bad starter or solenoid. If no power, start checking the start circuit-power is lost between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid-clutch interlock switch or park/neutral switch may be the problem.
Battery cables, terminals, starter electrical connections, and ground screws: make sure all are good with tight clean connections.

My 1995 saturn sl1 has no electricity. Battery tests good, I tried to start it this morning and heard one single 'click' sound then all power went dead. No horn, lights, etc. I checked the fus

The first thing I'd check would be the starter solenoid. I'm not familiar with the location on that particular model, but it'll look like this:

There will be a positive lead running from the battery to the starter solenoid.

Solenoids are usually fairly cheap (<$20), and because they die eventually in older vehicles it can be handy to have a replacement on-hand. As a result, buying one as a first step to diagnosing an electrical non-start issue really has no downside. If it fixes the problem, you know the cause. If it doesn't, you have a small, cheap replacement part you're almost guaranteed to need at some point in the future.

If, however, it is not the starter solenoid, you likely have (in order of ease of fixing) a locked-up starter (hit it hard with a hammer and attempt to start the vehicle again), a bad starter, or significant corrosion in the electrical leads running between your starter and the battery and/or solenoid.

The next step would be to remove the starter and take it to an auto parts store for testing. In the event it tests good, you'll want to test the resistance of the battery cables. Frequently there will be signs of corrosion somewhere along them in the form of bulging or split insulation and accumulations of white powder around and between the strands of copper inside the cable. Unfortunately, external signs of corrosion are not always present even in cases where significant corrosion resistance has built up in one or more electrical cables.

It sounds like a fault in the starter circuit. It could be a defective neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, or possible a defective ignition switch but I doubt it.

The smaller wires that hook to the big post on the solenoid. These are fusable link wires. It sounds like one is burnt or not hooked up. These feed all the power to the car. Did you hook the grounds to the top of the starter bolt?

Got a new battery yesterday on my 2000 Mit, but today it will not

Sounds like starter solenoid. Use a voltmeter and put it on B+ wire from starter relay to solenoid. Then crakk the vehicle . If your getting 12v there than its the starter solenoid. if there is no B+ there than check ign. switch, neutral safety switch,starter relay .
Good luck ..... you may want to give the battery a 3 min charge before testing.

Vehicle will click but not start, tried juming still clicks , only 10000 original milesany suggestions

Assuming your battery is properly charged and has a good connection, it's your starter solenoid (relay) that has failed.

The starter solenoid receives a large electric current from the car battery and a small electric current from the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is turned on, a small electric current is sent to the starter solenoid. This causes the starter solenoid to close a pair of heavy contacts, thus relaying a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion.

If a starter solenoid receives insufficient power from the battery, it will fail to start the motor, and may produce a rapid clicking or clacking sound. The lack of power can be caused by a low or dead battery, by corroded or loose connections in the battery cable, or by a damaged positive (red) cable from the battery. Any of these problems will result in some, but not enough, power being sent to the solenoid, which means that the solenoid will simply make a clicking sound, rather than setting the starter motor in motion.

If these items are all okay, it is likely you need to replace the solenoid.

I would suspect the starter solenoid has failed.

A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.

The starter solenoid receives a large electric current from the car battery and a small electric current from the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is turned on, a small electric current is sent to the starter solenoid. This causes the starter solenoid to close a pair of heavy contacts, thus relaying a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. The starter motor is an electric motor that initiates piston motion in a car's internal combustion engine before it can power itself.
