I found my cable on my starter was a little loose after the dealer did some trans work. The starter is on the rear of the engine on the drivers side. The only way to tighten the nut is to reach in from the wheel well on the driver's side. I took off the wheel and bought some new clips for the wheel well, because when you take the well cover off you have to drill out the center and it ruins the clips. Good Luck, this was not a fun job.

New Battery/starter and still wont crank.

car wont crank or car wont start? I would say your battery cables are bad,, acid gets in from battery and erodes internal cable parts... need a Meter to check it out.. put the meter on battery while someone tries to start it, if the voltage drops from 13.5 to 10 then it is trying to turn over, I always have the new starters tester before I leave a store, they are remanufactured in Malaysa and they use old parts in most of them..

2006 wont start just so I replaced the battery and it still wont start just clicks once any ideas

You can test the starter by bypassing the Starter Relay and using a jumper cable to go from one side of the relay to the other. It will spark, it will get hot enough to melt. But if the Starter is good the engine will crank and spin.

If the Starter does not crank with a direct bypass of the Relay, the starter is bad. If the engine does crank, the Relay you bypassed is bad and needs to be replaced.

One thing to check on the new Battery is the Voltage. The above information will not work on some Fords. A fully charged Battery has between13.2 and 13.4 Volts. The Antitheft system of some Ford products will prevent a start and in some cases reduce Crank Voltage to 6 Volts. I have also seen where a jump started Ford will cut out the Charging circuit after a few minutes of running to stall a potentially stolen vehicle. Battery voltage is therefore critical to a successful repair.

Now a Starter Relay is inexpensive and you can forego testing if you wish. But if you still hear clicks after replacing the Relay, either the Starter is bad or the Battery is not fully charged. Test the Starter as I instructed and go from there.

Every morning my vr4 1997 wont initially start, it will click a few times then start. sometimes takes 12 attempts to go. It is getting power though. thoughts??

It sounds like your battery is going dead.  Once the engine gets primed, it will start but the cranking is bad.  The only other thing to check is the starter bendix.  If you have a lot of dirt buildup, it will seize when you try to start it.

2002 impala intermitenly wont start

I would clean the battery connecters or possibly change them. How old is the battery? sometimes when battery get old, they have enough juice to crank the motor but not enough to start it..But then again, if it doesn't crank at all sometimes, it could certainly be a bad or loose battery terminals..Start with this since its the simplest and easiest and could very well be your problem. hope this helps

I have had problems with truck starting

When it wont crank, tap on the starter with a hammer, wrench ect. if it starts then, most likely need the starter replaced. If it grunts, its getting power. Make sure the battery is good. to check, take a voltage reading should be 12.7 volts on a fully charged battery, take a reading when starting, should not go below 10volts.
