The battery cable needs to be replaced, or cleaned up and connections cleaned. You can use a paste made of water and baking soda to neutralize the corrosion, then rinse with clean water. Coat connections with grease or vaseline to prevent future corrosion.

Truck Does not start. Battery seems died. It was tested and battery is still good as well as alternater. Is it a short or Starter?


If the engine is hot when it fails to start, suspect the starter. When they heat up the shaft will not stay in position if the bushings are bad. If it's cold and it won't start, look first for loose or corroded connectors on the battery, ground cable, starter cable and then if those are all good, replace the starter relay.

sounds like a bad starter, test for power with a testlight,have someone crank the engine while you check for power at starter , the small wire should have power when key is in start position. if theres power then replace starter, hope this helps good luck.

Starter problem.


check to be sure you are getting a good connection on your battery terminals.next check the hot wire from your battery to your starter .if all of this is alright .the problem is most likely your starter.the contacts in the starter solenoid will cause the this clicking sound.the contacts and contact piston are replaceable and some times you can clean them with a file and emery cloth and put it back together and may be just fine.but that just depends on what kind of condition they are in.

95 monte carlo LS, 3.1L does not start despite new parts


With new Battery and Starter, and still drags -
Check ALL connections and cables for corrosion. That includes the BATTERY to GROUND connection. Make sure the Cables themseleves are not corroded. Sometimes corrosion builds up inside the cable.
