Follow the red lead from your battery, and it will lead you to the starter.

2002 dodge stratus 2.7does not start no click noise was working.new batt


Possible starter motor problem. Try tapping the starter motor with something as you turn the key to the crank position. If it starts or makes any noises, suspect a starter. If no help, you will have to check for start power directly at the starter solenoid and diagnose from there

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.

I tried to start my 94Sunbird-I heard clicking for a few seconds & then nothing. Battery is good & it couldn't be jump started. How can I find out if it's the starter or something else? help?


one easy way is to have someone hold key in crank ing position,then another person needs to hit or tap the starer housing itself.if engine begins to crank intermittently or ur cliking noise turns into small jolts of the starter trying to crank then u can bet its the strtr motor. u do need a charged batt for this test. also chek ur battery grounds they can dramatically affect starter operation if we have a voltage drop anywhere in starter circuit .chek batt cables r tight on batt posts, loose batt cables on battery will also give u clicking noise w no starter operation

1999 chevy ingnition problems wont start wont crack over when you turn on the key you have dash lights


make sure that it is in park or neutral wiggle a bit as you try to start, may not have enough powr to crank.. tap the starter with something as someone tries to start may have a weak starter.. check batt term for issues of corrosion. check alt belt tension...

BATT CHARGED UP--TURN ON KEY,DASH LIGHTS UP--TRY TO START AND IT JUST CLICKS 2004 BUICK LESABRE


Check for dirty battery cable ends,and if this is o k,then replace the starter,tapping on the starter while trying to start the engine will confirm this solution.If the starter turns over and starts the car doing this,replace the starter.

2002 Dodge Intrepid accessory/starter relay problem?


Accessory position is turning key towards he driver. Ignition on is away 1 and start is away2.
  • Turn on your headlights, do they work? If not, chk batt terminals
  • If they do, try to crank the engine noting what the headlights do. If they go out, Chk the batt ground cable. If they dim, your batt needs a charge. If they dim and then come back bright when you back off the starter, the starter is bad.
  • Chk for loose engine to body ground. That would affect the accessories. Good Luck, _Ned_
