Sounds like the starter solenoid has been tack welded in place. If you know where it is located, try hitting it with a stick of wood struck by a small hammer. I have seen that situation on power lawnmowers before.

2000 c2500 starter cranks without ignition key on


I think that you have a defective starter solenoid, this the part that is mounted to the top of the starter.

Have fully charged battery, but when I turn the key, all I get is a click. Bad solenoid or is the starter locked up? Car sat for about 7 months. Started up and ran fine yesterday...today the problem...


Visually inspect for security lights flashing when you try to crank it. Otherwise take a hammer to the case of the starter while someone tries to crank it.

Doesn't start, not even a cranking noise


If it does not crank, it could be the key switch, the neutral safety switch, or the starter.
While you are under the car you need to check to see if you have power on the purple wire at the starter solenoid when the key switch is in the start position. That is power coming from the key switch thru the neutral safety switch that energizes the starter solenoid.

I have a 2003 honda accord. When I try to start it there isn't any power at all. I had the battery checked and it is fine. I tried to check the fuses and they seem to be fine. What else could caus

I tried to start my 94Sunbird-I heard clicking for a few seconds & then nothing. Battery is good & it couldn't be jump started. How can I find out if it's the starter or something else? help?


one easy way is to have someone hold key in crank ing position,then another person needs to hit or tap the starer housing itself.if engine begins to crank intermittently or ur cliking noise turns into small jolts of the starter trying to crank then u can bet its the strtr motor. u do need a charged batt for this test. also chek ur battery grounds they can dramatically affect starter operation if we have a voltage drop anywhere in starter circuit .chek batt cables r tight on batt posts, loose batt cables on battery will also give u clicking noise w no starter operation

My pick up nissan 1995 doesn't start no electricity at all charged battery checked fuses are working


you sure the battery is truly good right / ...then you may have a bad cable or simply corroded enough to cause this also there is a fuse at the negative open it and see if it is in fact god otherwise its either battery cables or possibly the starter itself possible even the key switch and you checked the crank fuses in the fuse box and all are good . try using a test light with the key on and see if any juice is at both ends of each fuse ...clean the cables and starter cable connections

My ford explorer wont start my key goes to access but when i turn it to start nothing not even a clicking noise


ok, Make sure the battery connections are clean, remove and clean to make sure. Then, follow the battery + cable to a solenoid. check those connections. The small wire is the one from the key. That is what cranks the motor. Make sure the vehicle is in neutral and try again. If nothing, then jump the batt+ to the cable on the other side of the solenoid. The starter will crank. Then, jump the + to the little oost. The engine will crank and if your key is on it will start. Always have someone in the drivers seat when doing this..... Safety is a must when out of vehicle. Good Luck, Ned.

Ignition


Sounds like the battery is dead, you have just enough power to have the lights come on, but no cranking of the starter. Try putting the battery on a trickle charger, or hook up jumper cables to another car which is running. Let it run with the jumper cables connected for two mintues before you try and start your car.
