Sounds like the starter solenoid is bad. Most auto parts stores can give you the correct part and some will show you where it is and how to change it. Make sure that you reinstall the wires exactly as the original. Some solenoids are 4 wire and some are two.

I just posted a question about my 2001 Chevy Cavalier not starting .the engine doesn't even crank over so I don't know what else it could be because the battery is brand new


how about a bad starter?

If there is no cranking noise when you turn the key to the start position than check the following.

1. Make sure there is power at the large terminal/wire at the starter all the time.

2. Check that there is power on the small wire/terminal at the starter with the key in the crank position.

If both of those check out than replace the starter.

2001 ford windstar won't start


does it have the halo around the ignition switch for anti theft? ive seen a lot of those fail and need replaced. on a side note be careful jumping the start on those vans,if the ecm doesnt start it sometimes it wont shut it off either. could be the resistor in the key too.

2000 chevy express 3500 van with a 350. Hard time starting. When it starts runs beautiful! Will only start after several taps of the key as if you where setting timing. Not with key fully turning over....


sounds like the check valve in fuel pump is allowing fuel to drain back out of lines. this would require ystem to prime up each time it is cranked. check fuel pressure it should hold with key off if it leaks down this is problem and pump will need to be replaced

2002 chevy express fuel pump/crank sensor?? not starting


i had a similar problem and called the dealer during lunch hour. i talked to a mechanic, the distributor in these vehicles is plastic, and is prone to cracking.not just the cap but the body also, I have been taking the cap off and wiping the moisture out of the cap. or replacing the cap but the problem is I need a new distributor. just a cheep way to get rolling is cleaning the inside of the cap, especially when it is very damp or the outside temp changes alot during the day. good luck.

How hard is it to replace the starter on a 2001 chevy express van


Really shouldn't be bad, you will have to get underneath the vehicle, but once you're there, its basically disconnecting the posotive and negative wires, and 2 to 3 bolts holding it in the motor, after that, its just the reverse procedure for installation, make sure you disconnect the battery before hand, the 12v can give you a good wake up call. Hope that helps
