It's a bad starter. A bad starter will function when it's cold but once it heats up, it requires more power to get it to work.

    my car make a clicking when tying to start

    the clicking noise is normal since there's insufficient power to make the bad starter engage. when this occurs, the starter will often turn 1/2 turn and then start clicking.

Why wont my Chevy s10 Blazer 1991 start and have power to the cab I have headlights I have power going to my starter battery and alternator


Do the dash lites come on when you turn the key on? Are you saying the starter doesn't crank?

I'd have to be sure the battery has a full charge and battery connections all clean and tight.

The starter has two voltage circuits, one is hot all the time, the other circuit, sometimes called the starter s terminal, goes hot with the key in the crank position and is wired through neutral switch, if auto tranny. Did you try cranking it in neutral?

My 2000 S10 will not crank,it has new battery & alternator,when the ignition is turned on I get all dash lights but won't turn over. The light around the odometer dims when I engage the key.


You need to test the start wire at the starter when the key is turned to crank position to make sure it has power during cranking. Sometimes tapping on the starter motor with a hammer while cranking will engage a bad starter motor

Quick question, does the "security" light illuminate on the dash when you put your key forward and when it wont turn over? Do you have a little black chip in your key?

1999 Vw beetle car wont start when I turn the key


It's possible that the wire that connects the starter to the battery has corrosion/battery acid on it and is creating a lot of resistance in the wire. Sometimes you'll have a good connection, sometimes you'll have a bad connection thus creating an intermittent problem. You should check the wire that hooks into the starter, disconnect it, clean it with a small, wire bristle brush, and maybe spray some of that red, battery terminal spray on it, then hook it back up. Make sure you disconnect the battery first. It's pretty hard to get down in there but you can save yourself a ton of money if you do it yourself. You may be able to reach it better from underneath if you drive the car up on some ramps.

Car won't turn over, has power to dash from ignition


ignition switch. the one in the column where the key goes into. not exactly an easy replacement due to the airbag location as sometimes the mount screrws for the key switch retainer will be between the wheel and the column assembly requiring the wheel to be removed.
