My car wont start

I got into my car and turned the keys the only thing I heard besides the lights and alarm chirps was a low humming but the car never started. The battery as fully charged by we were not aware of that so we tried to jumpstart the car and nothing, I am not car savvy but sounds like a bad starter, can anyone PLEASE HELP

I think your problem is the starter unit. In the starter unit there small 2 copper plates where the bendix hit against so that the current can go through. Replacing those 2 copper plates should solve the problem.

  • 1 Turn the ignition key counter clockwise in the driver's side door to unlock the caricon1.png. This deactivates the alarm long enough for you to gain access to the vehicle. Then, place the key in the ignition and turn the key until it clicks once. This starts the car's battery, but doesn't ignite the engine. The LED light on the dashboard should stop blinking, indicating the alarm is temporarily disabled.
  • 2 Locateicon1.png the box for the alarm under the dashboard on the driver's side of the car. Then, look for the override button on the box. Typically, the small button is either red or black. With the ignition key in the "on" position, press the override button and hold it in until the alarm chirps once. This disables the alarm until you manually reactivate it.
  • 3 To reactivate the alarm, turn the key to the "on" position and press the override button once. The alarm chirps twice, indicating the alarm is active.

  • Hope this helps!

    2003 dodge caravan will not start. Makes a clicking noise, and dash shuts off, then makes a humming sound.


    im going to say an almost dead battery .the hum you hear might be the fuel pump.you never heard it before because the van normaly starts .so boost your van if it starts you may have to replace the altenator the guages, no worries many cars do that .thats a code needing erased and if you disconnect the battery that may go away.

    1996 DODGE MINIVAN WILL NOT START COULD IT BE THE ALARM SYSTEMIF SO I NEED SKEMATICS OF WIRING DIAGRAM TO DISCONNECT THE ALARM SYSTEM


    There are many other possibilities for no start problem.Like battery very low on voltage or battery totally got weak/faulty.The starter is not functioning.There is no fuel or fuel pump is getting blocked.But yes, the alarm system is also possible.---------- Did you tried with any other key.Do you have two keys for the car.If yes, try with another key.Do you hear the horn chirping noise when you start the car.
    Try to reset the Alarm:-- Insert the ignition key into driver side door lock.Then turn the key to anticlockwise direction and unlock the door.Then turn the key to clockwise direction.Then again turn key to anticlockwise direction.This resets the system.Then check. ---------------- Also disconnecting the reconnecting battery for 10 minutes resets the alarm system. --------------- Try this troubleshooting.Keep updated.thanks.Helpmech.

    Hi,
    If you have the Toyota factory alarm, there should be button under the driver's side dash to reset the alarm....Look for it 1st, then read below.

    Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
    all the way just before cranking, to the ON position.

    Then within 5 seconds, locate, press and hold in the
    valet/overide button, found under the
    dash area, (push button, spring loaded)
    until the installed LED (the blinking light)
    in your dash area goes on solid,
    and the siren chirps once.

    (Your valet switch might be the toggle
    (on/off) type. in this case, key on,
    flip switch in opposite direction,
    then turn the key off.)

    This should reset the alarm, and reset
    the grounded relay on the starter wire,
    allowing you to start the engine.

    At this point, the only thing working would
    be the keyless entry from the alarm,
    if it came equipped that way.

    Just Repeat these steps to place it
    back to usable armed mode.
    You may get 2 chirps, confirming it,
    and the lights may flash twice as well.

    It sounds like there is a short in your alarm system which is draining the battery while the car is sitting. Try jump starting the car, then pull the fuse which goes to the alarm system. If the vehicle takes a jump and starts, and you can't locate the fuse right away, disconnect the positive battery terminal when you let your car sit. When the car is running the alternator will keep the battery charged.
