Take the starter off and take it to autozone,they test them free. Or find the solenoid and cross the positive with the side may be that or a bad battery

My car wont turn on and i change the oil and put a new starter in

I think you mean the engine won't start. If the starter is not turning the engine at all, some wires have not been reconnected. The starter has a heavy current cable from the battery, and a smaller (about 2-3mm) wire that connect the starter solenoid. If this is not connected, the starter will not work.

If the starter does turn, check all the wiring again, something is not connected.

My 2004 330ci won't start, does not turn over. The battery is fine, all electrical in the car work fine, plus trying to jump car does not work & a green light is showing on the battery in the truck....

If the battery is fine, why jump it? Faulty thinking to state or think: all electrical in the car work fine. If it did the starter motor would be turning the engine over. The starter motor work on electrical...not all is fine.

check: 1) 60a starter fuse/relay. 2) voltage to starter when turning key to activate starter motor, this will rule out ignition switch or relay. 3) apply direct voltage to starter motor to detect bad starter motor.

How do I take out a starter motor from a Ford

10 chances to 1 the starter is not your problem. Try this, turn on the headlights, hit the starter.If the lights go out, then look at the soleniod an the All the connections. If the lights stay on,replace the starter. Another thing. Hold it in start mode for 20 seconds, then check for heat at all connections. Could get a burn doing this,but think of the bucks you saved!

I think my starter is bad. How do I confirm/fix?

Make sure the small wire on the solenoid has a good contact. If it does, check that there is +power to there when trying to start. If there is power and a good contact, and the starter still won't crank, try shorting the two bolt terminals on the solenoid (carefull, it will spark). If the starter cranks then it's okay, suspect solenoid.If the solenoid is okay you should hear it kicking in.

1990 toyota camry won't start

Usually if you hear the starter solenoid click but the starter doesn't crank, its the starter. And since it was after a trip that is usually when starters are bad when they get hot.

My 99 Windstar won't start. The battery and alternator are new. All connections are tight and clean. No corrosion. When the key is turned, the starter only makes a bump sound. Possibly like the solenoid is...

I think your right about the starter being bad.
When you turn the key, it will draw all the energy that it can from the battery. That's why your dash-lights go out.
When you take it in to be replaced, have them test out the old and the new starter.
I've gotten a defective starter before that was brand new.

Starter Relay?

if the starter turns the engine then your starter system is working properly, i would start by checking all of the fuses both under the hood and in the interior panel as well if all is well, then check for spark and fuel
