My 86 olds 98 won't start

I,ve replaced the battery, alternator, and starter and it still won't turn over. Looked at the starter but I didn't see a ignition wire just wondering did it have one connected to it and if so, how can I find it?

It should be in the harness with the others that go to the starter, its a small wire that comes from the ignition switch it hooks to the small post next to the main post on the starter selonoid thats what kicks the selonoid in witch in turn, turns the starter.

We've replaced fly wheel, and now the starter and the battery and the truck still won't start and nothing works.


are you sure with parts are the same as the old ones ? If so start again as you started the fitting in order to be sure that everything is in order. I believe either you haven't put the contact ( earth ) or you didn't tight it enough.

My '99 saturn sl won't start. the battery has a charge, and the alternator is good, but it won't turn over.


Hi Vernon, There could be a number of different reasons why your vehicle is failing to start. The battery voltage could be dropping during start and become unable to engage the starter motor to turn the engine. You can check this by trying the key with the head lights switched on. If the lights become very dim, you'll need to check the battery, meaning clean the terminals and then try to start with a jump from another battery. If you achieve start up and it fails again the following morning, you will probably need to replace the battery. There could be a problem with the starter relay or a loose contact for the starter motor, most lik3ely the one connecting to the soliniod. It would be good to know some additional information, such as does a clicking sound come from the starter when engaged? Is there a perceptible drop in voltage output when the starter is engaged? does the enine turn at all? Try what I've suggested and if that does not solve the problem answer the questions and let me know anything else which you may think is relevant. Regards John

I have a 2002 Mercury Sable w/DOHC that was drove through flooded intersection last week & stalled. The water was about 2-3 feet deep. I've replaced oil, filters, spark plugs & dried out...


when car won`t turn but clicks then the ( brushes of you starter are worn may be the man who replace used the old brushes ) its very simple thing but will get your car to start
but you didn`t mention anything about fuses and relays if you haven`t replace them all then replace relays/fuse first
you welcome any time sir .

Dear sirs, I have a 2000 Ford Explorer which won't start. All light in the dashboard turn on but the engine won't crank. We've tried to crank the engine direct from the battery and it cranked....

just check the alternator is charging well and no battery light on dashboard it indicate the bad alternator
monitor your battery if it got old and cannot hold the charge any more

MY CAR WILL NOT CRANK I REPLACED THE STARTER, ALTERNATOR AND FUEL PUMP. AFTER THAT IT STILL WILL NOT CRANK. WHAT COULD IT BE???


No crank means dead battery, jump it or get a new battery. If your battery was not dead and you didn't get fuel or it did not start you would get a cranking noise and no starting

My 2007 corolla won't start. When I turn the key in the ignition the starter makes a rapid clicking noise. I?ve tried putting the car in neutral and starting it that way, but had no luck. I?ve also tried...


1st check the main cable to the starter make sure it is clean and tight, disconnect battery first, after that there should be a small wire going to the starter jump that small connector to the main battery cable on the starter (IGNITION OFF) if it cranks you have a wiring or ignition switch problem if not Starter time just make sure you get a very good quality starter some cheap and even lifetime starters are so poorly made that even after you replace them you still have a problem only a bad noise coming from the new starter you just put in.

98 saturn sl2 won't start


if all it does is click with a new battery it is not the alternator because all the alternator does is charge the battery i would take the starter or selinoid off if it isnt built in with the starter and have it tested the same as you did the battery

98 saturn sl1 won't start


if you have good battery voltage at this time, and when you banged on the starter and then the car cranked over, it would appear you have a defective starter. i would imagine if you replaced it in july of last year that it could still be under some sort of warranty, so i would look into that. either way, it sounds as if you need a new starter.
