Starter motor is jammed. solenoid on the starter is sticking. if its a manual gearbox put the car bin 4th gear, release the handbrake and rock the car back and forth.if you hear a clunk then the solenoid has released. try starting the car again. if its an automatic remove the stater motor and investgate. either way your starter motor needs overhaul or replacing

What else can I ck-sounds like something so simple keeping my car from starting.


You have a lot going on here , let's clarify a little ! The engine cranks over when you turn the key ? You sure have been busy replacing parts ! If it cranks over did you check for spark at the spark plugs ? An did you test for fuel pressure ? an does it have compression ? No Start Diagnostic Basics EricTheCarGuy

Car wont turn over and making a humming noise when key is in on position. when i try to start it the car makes a clicking sound.


the alternator isn't charging battery that would account for loss of power and also clicking when try to start , try a jump start if it starts then you know its the battery so with engine running check the alternator charge rate with a voltmeter across the battery terminals anything below 13 volts then check the alternator belt is tight enough , good condition etc , then recheck charge rate if still low fit new alternator

Why won't new alternator charge battery when car is running


Many cars have a voltage regulator that is integral to the alternator. Check to be sure it is properly connected. One year later afternoon the day before the Turkey was to be cooked I replaced the Alternator. I drove 200 hundred miles and had the car die at the gate to my destination. I failed to properly connect the Voltage Regulator on the Alternator. Look in that direction for a bad wire, fuse, connector.

My 1999 mitsubishi diamante will not start. I got a friend to jump it but it still would not start. I took the battery out and took it to autozone to charge it. But autozone would not charge it because...


It sounds like you need a new starter. If you hear the starter click when you turn the key to start, replace your starter since you already replaced the battery. You might want to have your alternator checked out, or when you get your car started, test the battery terminals with a multimeter. You should have around 14 volts with the car running. If not, you will need a new alternator. The alternator won't keep the car from starting though, unless the battery was drained because it wasn't charged. Even then it is the battery keeping the car from starting.

If the starter is not clicking, check your fuses under the hood. If all checks out, you may have a bad ignition switch.

94 z wont start


You will have to check, at the starter, for power to the SMALL wire on the starter solenoid (which is on the starter) when turning the ignition switch to start.
If there is power to this wire ( usually purple ) and power at the LARGE cable ( from the battery ) at the starter end.....you need a starter.

If you do not have power at the small wire at the solenoid with the key in start position and battery power is OK.....check the safety neutral switch.Moving the shifter around a little can sometimes allow the car to start if the neutral switch is worn.

A new battery does not always mean a fully charged battery.
Try a boost from another car before testing the starter for power.

The battery cables need to be clean and tight....and check the ground to the engine as well.

Everything else may work OK with bad connections,they don't use the power the starter needs to turn the engine over.

Son has a 2005 Nisssan Altima and Hear clicking sound.


Most likely the alternator,chech for loose connections at the alternator first, if you have access to a voltmeter you can easily check this.Get the car started and place the leads to the battery terminals,if the alternator is good you should get about 14.8 v at idle and it will go as high as 15.5v to 16v as you rev the engine up.Anything between 12v and 14v at idle indicates a weak or not operating alternator.If you get a good reading run it for a bit and then see if it will start again,if it wont start check the battery cables(especially the negative) for corrosion or loose connections,look for cuts or tears in the insulation or a bulge in the cable wich will indicate corrosion under the insulation.If everything else checks out good and it still won't start then you'll need to look towards the starter.
