Make sure all the contacts on your battery tight are clean. Make sure your earth connector to the engine block and/or chassis is good. Check the cable that goes to your starter mother is clean and tight. I had a similar problem to this with my car a while back. I called the auto club (NRMA) out to help thinking my battery was dead. He got the ignition key and went, start off start off start off start off in rapid succession and then held it on start and the engine cranked over and started. The problem was with the contacts on the starter motor solenoid. Each time you start over the years a little spark jumps across the contacts and makes a little bit of corrosion on the surfases. I think the on off think burns a little clean patch but it is only temporary. I had my starter motor reconditioned and now it works like new again. My car is 89 model so it is about the same age as yours.

Turn key wont crank


Possible issues: too many to list

Do you hear a clicking sound when you turn the key to "START"? If so, I'd say your battery is dead.

Do any of your gauge lights, head lights, radio, etc. work just fine? If so, I'd guess you have a bad ignition, bad coil, or bad starter.

Likely issues:
Dead battery
Bad coil
Bad ignition switch
Bad starter

2004 grand vitara will not start and solenoid will not click, Battery is fine.


Sounds like the ignition interlock at the transmission switch is out of adjustment or faulty. Bypass the key switch, at the starter, if it now cranks, it's in the interlock switch or the ignition switch.

It could be the starter, test the small wire going to the starter, it should have power when turning the key to start/crank. If it does, and the starter will not crank the engine, whack it with a hammer, if it then starts, replace the starter. If there is no power to the starter, then it could be the ignition switch, or the neutral switch, or a fuse/link blown.

STARTING


check starter for power on main battery wire and on smaller wire from ignition switch while someone turns the key if your getting power on both wires it's the starter if you want you can also tap on the starter and starter solenoid while the key is being turned and see if it starts but it does sound like starter to me if your not getting power to the starter on the small wire make sure your alarm isn't interfering and check ignition switch

Check and make sure you are getting power to the ignition switch and to the stator wire on the starter. Turn the key on and and measure the volts going to the starter on both wires. You should a atleast 12 volts going to the stator wire and to the main wire from the battery. If you are not getting power there it could be a fuseable link in the power wire from the ignition. I noticed that you replaced the ignition switch make sure the rod from the key switch has not come out of the switch.

it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,
