The starter won't crank. If nothing happens when you turn the ignition key to the "Start" position, it means that the starter motor doesn't turn over the engine. Most commonly this could be caused by a dead battery; here is How to check the battery. ... The starter motor itself or a starter solenoid could be bad.13 Aug 2013

My 2009 Malibu showed no signs it was going to act up. girlfriend drove it to work as usual and the next day it wouldn't start, will not turn over or anything. Sometimes there's a click when t



This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

I have a new battery and alternator and my car today won't start. I tried to jump it and it still wouldn't even turn over. Could it be a belt?


No if its not doing anything at all it could be a bad wiring harness or if ur lucky a bad ignition.

My truck has sat for awhile but it boosted off just fine. I t ran for about 10-15 min then died. I tried to start it again nothing happened. I tried to boost it off nothing not even a click. I had lights...


the battery is totally to the point that not enough amps are being received from it,, so a jump won't even help, charge it completely ,, the lights and other items on the car require small amperage and 12 volts,, the starter requires a bunch of amps to turn it over, after you do that ,, check the alternator you can use a meter on the battery posts with the car running, and should have a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts

It's the alternator...it is not keeping your battery charged. You can remove it and take it to a local parts store and they will test it for free.

You need to check the engine oil level for coolant

Also make sure you have no external coolant leaks anywhere

I suspect that the head gasket may be letting coolant into the exhaust

I wouldn't be too concerned about the thermostat if it isn't over heating

You got a bigger issue with the lost of coolant

Hi, there are 3 fuses the the alternator needs to charge the battery. These may be inside the car or in a box in the engine compartment. They are named IG1, ECU, and ALT. If you have trouble finding them, please get back to me.

Won't start


Have your alternator check, sound like it's not charging your battery. When your battery is too low the car won't start even on a jump.
