My 1996 Buick LeSabre won't start. It's getting gas- has good spark. When it turns over it is real slow then acts like battery is dead. Have new battery and starter. I am at a loss.

Check voltage at battery while starting. If good, check with headlights on. If headlights dim, suspect bad battery cables or excessive friction in engine. If not,check voltage at starter.

Starter wiill not even engage turned the key on and nothing ran fine when I parked it and got up in the morning and wont even tur n over. Brand new battery

Hmm, possible problems:
- starter or starter solenoid defective.
- neutral switch or wiring thereto defective. Shift selector has to be in Park or Neutral to start. Sometimes brake pedal has to be pressed also for starter to turn.
- remote starter system defective (if you have this) This would be hard to diagnose.
I would first confirm if the starter works by putting 12V directly from positive pole on battery to positive connector on starter solenoid (use jumper cable, and wear goggles in case of massive sparking when you accidentally touch ground.)

2005 honda civic VP bad starter replaced still engine not turning over

Check the ground connection on the battery and the frame. Make.sure the battery posts are clean and free from corrosion. Most likely it's the ground on the frame

My car will not turnover at all, i had the starter, alternator, and battery tested and their all good.. i turn the key and the lights and everything work, but it does nothing, not even a clicking..

To tell if you have good connections on the starter wiring. Turn the headlights on then try to start it. If the headlights stay bright then the starter solenoid or wires to it is bad.

Yoy can measure the voltage to the solenoid small wires with a volt/ohm meter.

2008 equinox, turn key and it clicks but nothing happens, still have good headlights, acts like dirty cables of old days and suggestions

Suspect bad battery. The battery may produce enough current to operate most things (headlights, radio, locks etc) but not nearly enough to run the starter.

SL1 won't start, just single click, electronics work

Try charging the battery or jumping the car, your alternator could be shot and not charging the battery.
