Any suggestions on one that will not start

If your saying the starter motor won't crank? Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. Check starter wiring circuits. I'd have to make sure security system doesn't have a problem?
If there is a starter relay, on load side of relay, one terminal is hot all the time, If you use jumper wire between the proper two terminals, on load side of relay, the starter should crank. If you try that, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set. With automotive relays, they have two sides, coil/control side and the other side is switch/load side that carries voltage to starter. Even if we get starter motor to crank, if security system is involved, it still won't start.
If you have proper voltage and ground at the starter motor and no starter action, I'd have to check starter motor.

Will start after it sets for a little while can be jumped off after a while

All your saying is the battery is no good, or
you never tested it, or had it load tested

Same for the starter,it may be gone

Any time you need to jump a battery on todays
cars, DON'T, your asking for problems

Don't even put a charger on it with the cables
connected,the electronics don't like that

If their is more to your story check fuel pressure at the motor

You can check 2 things. 1., have someone in the car to turn the key to the start position. Tap the starter with a small hammer and see if it cranks. If it does, replace the starter. 2., have the battery tested as well as the connections to the battery. Corrosion builds and can cause heavy resistance to heavy loads(like starting). These are the 2 most likely causes. Let me know if you need further assistance.

I put my key in the ignition and it wouldn't turn the ignition at all. The key looked fine just like it always does. I made sure the car was in park and all the other standard stuff.

Hello. Move the shifter to neutral and then put it into park with more force. Try the key. Forcefully turn the steering wheel left and right. Then Repeat each step with even more force if necessary. Joe

Car wont start

Sound's like you might have blown the motor but don't worry first check the oil to make sure that it is not grey colored if it is then you have water in it that is a blown motor but check the starter to make sure that it is working and that the engine is not locked up you can do this by turning the fly wheel from the starter but you have to remove the starter so that you can get to it if the fly wheel turn's then the motor is not locked up you might have to just replace the starter

There is a wire is the starter that needs replace but cant get to needing to know what the name of the wire is called. Its a copper wire thats connected to the starter

if it's a big wire about 1/2' thick, it is the battery cable from the battery positive post to the starter, it provides the heavy current to run the starter.
Another small wire is the 12 volts low current that activates the starter relay which in turn connects the battery cable to the starter motor.
what is starter doing or not doing?
Starter System The starting system cranks the engine at a speed fast enough to permit the engine to start.
  • Heavy cables, connectors and switches are used in the starting system because of the large current required by the starter motor (11002) while it is cranking the engine.
  • The amount of resistance in the starting circuit must be kept to an absolute minimum to provide maximum current for starter motor operation.
  • A discharged or damaged battery (10653) , loose or corroded connections or partially broken cables will result in slower-than-normal cranking speeds. These concerns may even prevent the starter motor from cranking the engine.
  • In case of starting system difficulty, the operator may have discharged the battery before calling for assistance.
  • A road service procedure is described in this section to aid the service technician in such cases of a discharged battery .
The starting system includes the following:
  • the permanent magnet gear-reduction starter motor with a solenoid-actuated drive
  • the battery
  • a remote control starter switch (part of the ignition switch (11572) )
  • the transmission range (TR) sensor
  • the starter solenoid (11390)
  • heavy circuit wiring
Vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission have a transmission range (TR) sensor in the starter control circuit. This sensor prevents operation of the starter motor unless the transmission range selector lever is in the NEUTRAL or PARK position.
