Yes the motor should still turn over. Check for fuse or relay for starter is not working or solenoid

95 buick wont start


Got fuel? Sounds crazy but you'd be surprised how many times I have poured a gallon of gasoline into someones car to get it to start.

No start condition is the most frustrating problem. More information on what happens when you turn the key would help......but basicaly you need 4 things to make a car start. Fuel. Air. Spark. Timing. Fuel, Air, Spark and Timing are needed to start/run. Asked about fuel, but is the fuel getting to the cylinder? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail(s)? When you turn the key to the "On" or "Run" position, do you hear a whining sound coming from the rear (fuel tank area)? That is your fuel pump priming the system. No sound? Check fuses and relays associated with the fuel system. Air. You need air to the cylinder to make it start and run. Check your air intake and filter. Really clogged and dirty filter? Pull it out and try to start. No go? Put it back (change ASAP) and look for Spark. Spark includes battery. Are there any loose connections to/from your battery? Really corroded terminals? Clean and tighten the connections. Try to start. No go? Pull the spark plug wire off an easily accessible spark plug (grasp the "boot" as close to the plug as possible and wiggle back and forth easily while pulling - these boots and wire connectors are fairly delicate). Remove the spark plug (be careful and dont break it or cross thread it when putting back in) and pop the wire back on it and set the plug on top of your engine (away from the spark plug hole). Have someone try to start the engine. You should see the spark plug fire its tiny bright blue spark. If not, you have found your problem. The problem is likely a bad coil, bad coil wire, distributor cap, rotor or a combination of these. If you have spark, then it has come down to timing. There are lots of things that affect timing in modern cars. There are a couple of sensors that jump out - Crankshaft and Camshaft position sensors. These will generally quit working while driving and you will likely notice the problem beforehand with it running really rough and getting crappy mileage, and the check engine light will come on and give you all kinds of hints. IF you turn the key and nothing happens, it might be a broken timing belt, but again, those usually fail under working conditions. It is possible (rare) the timing belt slipped/broke when you last shut off the engine, but I would point at the other 3 things first (Fuel, Air & Spark). Hope this helps. Good luck.

Car wont start


Could be the linkage between the lock cylinder and the switch, or the trick was just a red herring and had nothing to do with the problem.
Will it crank in neutral ? Do you have power at the starter ?

Merc c 180, 1994 new battery but sometime the engine wont start but the key will turn normally, dash board On. after turning the key several time then the engine may start (about 10 min). What can be the...


Hi,
There two possible cause of that problem. Though you failed to tell us if you hear some clicking sound when you try to crank the engine.
The first one would be inadequate supply of ground/negative ( - ) from your battery to the engine where the starter is connected or placed at. Check the grounding connection and terminal from the battery to the engine, clean up the engine ground connection or add additional bigger diameter of wire to the grounding of the engine.


Second will be the worn contact points in the ignition key cylinder base. there is a contact points at the end of that key cylinder, where contactor touch each other when you turn the key. The remedy will be to open and remove the ignition key cylinder, check the contactors, and replace if there is a burnt wire or contact point.
Your local garage mechanic can repair that easily.

Hope that helps you.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

There should be a small black wire going from the battery to the starter motor. It sounds as though it has come loose.
Check it and re connect it.
I hope this works.
Good look

Car wont crank


I have a 2000 Olds Intrigue that has the starting problem that some people have spoke about. You turn the key and all lights come on but the car will not start nothing. I 1st replaced the ignition switch which did not correct the problem. To get around the problem I have connected a wire to my starter and ran the wire up to the battery and when the car acts up I take the wire touch the positive pole on the battery post and the starter will turn over. I then get in my car and use the key and start the car. I have not been stranded by the car since. I try the key a few times if nothing happens I'll wait a few minutes and if that does not do it I jump the starter with my wire. This has been working for the last 2 years. It's not a correction but it is a work around.

Car won't start; Replacement Key from GM or Starter Bad?


Check the cylinder, maybe the magnetic spot is not contacting the correct area of the cylinder. Cylinder may be loose, also poosibly bad computer chips on the keys.
