Won't crank or attempt to start. The battery is good. Is it the starter or could it be something else?

Richard, how have you proven the battery is good? This is critical. replaced a starter a long time ago and found out it was the battery the whole time..

My 2003 Grand Marquis just clicks when I try to start it and won't start.

Possibly needs a battery. Have the battery tested by an auto parts store. If battery tests good then problem is most likely the starter.

Starting problems

You probably have something that is staying on and draining the battery. You need to have an "ignition off draw" test done.

My 99 Taurus acts like the battery is dead it will crank the engine over a couple times slowly then nothing I've had the battery tested and it was good same with the starter it won't jump start...

If the battery and starter have proven good, then you probably have a connection issue.Check condition of battery, wire to battery, and starter wires and connections also. I dont know your particular situation, but there is always the possibility of a motor trying to sieze.

I have a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder. It recently wouldn't start. A friend said there appeared to be a lot of grease on the whatever its called that plugs into the starter. It will push start but won't...

It sounds like you have a solenoid issue on the starter... If it push starts fine then all your ignition circuits seem ok... If you feel good that there is not any damage when the keys turn the ignition.. I would lean toward correcting the starter problem.. Hope this helps..

Car won't start the first time, batteri low voltage so after many tries ,finally it starts

well you ve to use a voltmeter check the battery before it stars and then while idling while idling volts must be about 13v or so. if you got your 13 while idling just replace your battery, if you got less then 12v while idling your problem is the alternator. if you got good volts at any time, motor off or idling your problem is your starter...

I have a mitsubishi montero LS from 1995, my wagon won't start, i change the battery with a new one and it won,t start either, please let me know what could happen it has electricity and everyhing.thnaks

Before anything check yoour cable connections and any fuses; if these are fine look to the starter. This will be located on the lower right (passenger side of the engine) Start by removing the battery ground (negative) after which remove the starter; I believe they're are two larger bolts @ 14 - 17 MM. If you can have the starter test at an auto parts store. You can bench test the starter yourself if you like.
I hope this may have assisted,

How to test installed alternator on nissan pathfinder 1994?

Start vehicle and with vehicle running there should be at least 14 volts when tested at battery leads. If you don't have a volt meter may I suggest taking this vehicle to an AUTO-ZONE and they will test for FREE. They will test the entire charging system including battery and alternator and starter. Good Luck
