Check your battery ground connection to the chassis, and also motor ground connection.
Check operation of any start activation slave relay.

98 olds aurora i turn key wont start. all else seems fine after a few attempps it will start any idea whats wrong?


You mean it cranks but won't start, or it just won't crank over?

If it won't crank, possibly a defective starter motor or starter solenoid. To be sure: when it won't crank, put a test light on the small wire to starter solenoid with key held in start position. Wire should have power. If it does, defective or failing starter motor or starter solenoid. If no power on the wire, check battery and starter connections for loose connection. Further testing requires a wiring diagram to see the whole starting system.

97 olds 88 runs rough first few seconds, when you shut it off it will not crank. Had the ignition control module tested and says that it is good. Any ideas?


Will not crank how ? When you turn the key to the start position does the starter engage and spin the engine ? , A crank no start condition . Or nothing happens . A no crank - no start condition . I assume by your statement ( Had ignition control module tested ) That you have a crank no start condition . in which case have you tested input from the crank sensors to the ICM and PCM . What engine does your Old's have ? 3.8 L
Is there spark at the coil's ? Pull plug wires off of the same coil , have someone crank the engine over , Is there a spark jumping from one coil tower to the other ? If so , you don't have an ignition problem , fuel more then likely . Is your SECURITY light lit on the instrument cluster , if it has anti-theft .

The car will not crank starter brand new battery good turning the ignition the starter will click


is the engine siezed ?? try another battery from a known car that starts ,a battery can show 12.4 or more on the meter but have no reserve amp capacity to make it it crank ,this i get on modern batteries owing to the fact their sealed unit so you cannot check the water level in them ,,,,use a hammer and chisel and break the sealed for life top off and you will see what i mean

85 Chevy Surburban 6.2 diesel. Won't start. We charged the dead batteries and tried to start it. It started cranking then made a loud thud almost grind sound. We replaced the starter solenoid and Still...


Could be internal damage. Put a socket and wrench on the crankshaft pulley and see if engine is seized up. The thud is worrying, suspect major damage if the crank won't turn all the way round. If you can't turn the engine by hand, you will need a new engine (or new vehicle- that is a pretty old suburban, almost ancient to be needing a new engine!)
If engine still turns by hand, have your starter tested.

How do i check starter voltage on 1995 7.3 Ford F250? The batteries are less than a year old. They are being drained frequently. Today truck will not crank. Starter checked out by mech.


Sounds like you have something else draining battery. Possibilities include the alternator. For starter cranking voltage place the positive lead of voltmeter on positive of battery and the negative on the other. Disable fuel, then crank for 15 seconds and read volts while cranking. This is your cranking voltage. For voltage drop on cables, place positive on battery positive and negative at battery cable on starter. Crank 15 seconds. This should be less than .5 volts. The same can be done with any cable or wire in the starting or charging circuit of a vehicle. Just place the positive on positive or negative on negative, with the other lead at the opposite end of the cable being tested. In charging diagnostics, you will get the charging system operating with the engine running while you do the readings. I suggest though, that you do a parasitic drain check. If you disconnect the positive cable of the battery and place a test light in series (one end to battery, the other to the cable), you should have a very dim light to no light. If the light is bright, you have a drain. Proceed by making sure everything is off and there are no dome or hood lights on. Start removing fuses one at a time until the light goes out or gets very dim. Replace each one after you check it to avoid having a pile of fuses to put back. Also disconnect the alternator wiring to eliminate this possibility. A fried regulator may feed voltage to the fields all night if it's shorted. This will drain both batteries in relatively short time.

1993 suburban won't crank when hot


There are quite a few things to check, start with checking fuel and spark. One or the other isn't working at the time of NO START. Things to check: ECT sensor(engine coolant temp.), TP sensor(throttle positioning), fuel pump and relay (), spark-plugs, wires, cap&rotor, air&fuel filter, PCV, ignition control module (can be tested for free at AUTO-ZONE or most other part stores), IAC (idle control valve), no crank signal (defective ignition switch), or PROM. I think that with all the extra cranking something else is bad now. Check the battery, should have 12.5 volts (cold), the fuse, connections, and bench test the new starter, it might be defective. Hope this helps you, if you have any other questions, please ask away.
