The battery to starter connection has power.the battery is ok.but there are many other possibilities related to battery and its other connections,the spark plugs,the fuel pump,the fuel itself,the sensors(o2 sensor,maf sensor)the valve(IAC valve,egr valve). Most probably the spark plug,the coil pack and crank shaft sensor.This 3 are not getting power to get the car start.

There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--

1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.

2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.

3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.

4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.

5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it's a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.



Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Cutlass ciera wont start


Does the starter spin the motor at normal cranking speed? If there seems too much friction, try turning the engine over by hand to check if the engine turns freely. Put a socket and wrench on the center crankshaft pulley bolt and turn clockwise. If you cannot turn the crankshaft with a wrench easily, then the starter can't either. Turn the crank all the way around to check for something preventing cranking.
Is the battery still enough power to crank at normal speed? If it's already too low, recharge it, and try again.

Posted question couple days ago, my 2005 lincoln navigator wont start, replaced.starter and battery didnt work..when u put the key on dash board lights up but when u turn the key, nothing happens, no...


Are you certain the security has not immobilized the car? If it isn't a security issue, there is probably a problem in the start circuit.
If you check for power on the small starter solenoid wire, with the key held in crank, and no power is on that wire-the start circuit from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid has a problem. If the wire does have power with key in cranking position, probably a bad connection from battery to starter, since you have a new starter.
To be certain the engine is not locked up, put a socket and wrench on the crankshaft pulley center bolt and turn the engine over by hand a revolution or so.

Replacing a starter in a sebring 2006


All of the nuts and bolts are metric on it. It helps to use a 13mm swivel socket on the starter bolts but you can use a wrench if you need to. Also, a 7/8 open end wrench for the 02 sensor, or an 02 sensor socket.


Let me give you the steps for the starter and also the front engine mount bracket. You don't have to remove the entire mount, just the bracket




REMOVAL

  1. Open Hood.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Raise vehicle and support.
  4. Disconnect the electrical connector from the 02 sensor.

  • Remove the 02 sensor from the exhaust manifold .
  • Remove the front mount through bolt.
  • Remove the front mount bracket from engine block.

    1996 Dodge Caravan wont crank if i turn the key to start i get noting all relays are new all fuses checked the message center does not do a bulb check stays off


    I would start off by trying to jump start the vehicle. If it starts and runs normal, that tells you the starter and engine are okay, and the problem is in the charging system - battery, battery cables, alternator, relays, etc.

    Now if it doesn't start, I would take the belt off and see if I could move the crank manual with a wrench. If it rotates (CW) then most likely your starter is bad.

    My exwife had someone replace the tranny in her 1998 Chrysler Sebring. Now it wont turn over, it sounds like it is bounded up as if something is possibly jammed. I was thinking maybe the torque converter...


    Probably the starter gear is binding on the flywheel after the reinsatlation. If your turning it over with a wrench then that leads me to the starter.

    Somebody Please help me !! after install the starter for my tsx the starter will make clucking noise and won't start right away (it sounded like some metal hitting !!!) please someone help me!!! HELP ~~~


    I am sorry, you will have to remove the starter-motor again.
    Before you do this, write down the 'code' for your radio.

    Seems like the starter-motor wasn't sitting properly, or you mistakenly got an object in the starter-motor housing. Or the starter-motor you exchanged was defective.

    2. Disconnect the negative battery terminal.
    3. Disconnect the positive wire of the starter-motor and solenoid wire.
    4. Loosen the starter-motor bolts and take it out for thorough examination. You might take it back to where you purchased it for additional testing.
    5. Rotate the flywheel with a breaker-bar/torque-wrench, and see if you hear any strange sound.
    6. Install the starter-motor, hand-tighten the bolts first. Then torque to about 90-inch pounds.
    7. Re-connect the solenoid/starter-motor wires and the battery negative terminal. Then crank-up the car again.

    Starter problems helppppppppppp me pliz


    Just clicks. Clicks real fast? Turn on your headlights. If they go dim when you crank, the battery is dead. If headlights go out when you crank, Ther is a bad battery connection. Loosen, move and retighten the connection If this is a side post battery, then remove , clean and reinstall cable to battery.
    you will need a 5/16 wrench. If top post you need two 1/2 wrenches, Let me know. good luck
