You've got to check remove and clean your battery terminals and the connectors.Also check the main ground on the block from the battery negative terminal. Then check the tightness of the large red wire going to the starter from the positive battery terminal. And lastly, make sure the small push on terminal to the starter solenoid is tight. if not remove it and pinch it hard with your thumb and index finger. Push it back into place and see if it will start. If so while it is running check your charging systenm with a voltmeter,it should read between 13- 14.5 volts. If it does not start then jump the battery from another vehicle and then check the charging system. If your charging system is fine and the next morning you cannot get it to turn over you'll need a new battery.

My 1991 non-turbo Mercury Capri started fine last night but while idling, the Air Bag light began to flash and the Battery light came on. Not wanting to travel I turned off the ignition switch. ...


charge the battery and once fully charged, do a LOAD test on it, clean all the connections and start the car ,, check the voltage at the battery posts with the car running, you should get between 13.5 and 14.5 volts, if not, replace the alternator , if you do, the battery and the cables just needed some attention

I have a 2000 toyota camry. I turn the key on, dash board lights come on but the engine wont turn. checked the battery, fuses. they are good. could it be the alternator.


Did you have the battery checked by a doing a load test? Do you hear a "clicking" sound when you turn the key to start? If you hear a clicking sound, and you're positive the battery is good (fully charged) it could indicate a bad starter solenoid.

By the way....what kind of vehicle is it....a 00 Camry or an 04 Impala?

The battery is fully charged, but when I try to start the jeep, the engine wont start. The battery is fully charged. I checked all the wires to assure that I had no lose wires. Could this indicate a bad...


Hello, There is something you can try, but we need more info about any sounds the engine makes and if the engine is cranking or completely dead when you turn the Key to Start.

If the engine does not crank, there are switches under the floor pedals for the Brake and clutch(if a stick shift). These often get hit by a wayward shoe and the switch is knocked out of position or broken. Check there and see if that's the problem. Another switch is part of a Safety device that requires your Auto Transmission to be in Park or Neutral. It should be under the dash and possibly at the bottom of your steering column.

If there is a click or stream of clicks, rattles, and so on when the Key is in Start; you need to recontact us.

Now when you say "won"t start" if the engine cranks and does not run, this would be a different problem than one caused by a Starter. You would either have no fuel activity or no spark. We would need to know from you what the engine is doing.

My 2002 isuzu trooper, 4.3 liter engine, will not start. The battery is good and fully charged. It has been suggested I remove the alternator and take it in to be tested. How do I remove it.


Hi,all the alternators job is,is to charge the battery,so the alternator has nothing to do with it not starting.now if your battery keeps draining down and you have to recharge it every couple of days,then it would be the alternator that was bad.but if you have a fully charged battery and it still wont start, its another problem! does it turn over and try to start but not start?? or when you turn the key over does it just go click-click-click?? or does it just not make any noise at all when you turn the key over?? it makes a big diffrence which of the three its doing,let me know which one its doing, also you can take your battery to auto-zone and they will load test to see if its holding a charge ok.....just let me know.......yz-maniac.

I have an xjsv12 Jaguar (1988). I have eliminated it's alternator as a source of its current problem. Symptoms?.. When turning the key to start, it only "clicks" from under the hood. The battery is new....


Sounds like there may be more than one problem but we'll work on the non-start first. When you turn the key to the start position there will be two simultaneous clicks. One from under the hood will be the starter relay located on the right side rail/ drip rail of the engine bay under a black plastic cover with screws. The other click will be from the starter solonoid mounted on the starter motor. if you only hear the click from the relay then either power is not reaching the solonoid, or it is, and the solonoid is bad. if you hear both clicks ( probably you will need an assistant for this ) and no start then the starter motor itself is bad. Hope this helps.

2002 jaguar x type wont start, lights, radio, air have power. clicking sound when turning the key to start the engine. Engine light stays, no engine turnover


Hi .
unlikely to be immobiliser fault ,so check basics,try a set of jump leads or check battery voltage above 12.5,if the clicking is coming from the starter motor with a fully charged battery then suspect starter motor failure.

Engine will not start


That Clicking Sound is Coming from the Starter. First check the Starter Relay. It should be in a Fuse Relay Box under the Hood. If this is good, The Problem will be the Starter and will need to be Replaced. Also Check the Tension on the Belt. If the Belt is even a little loose it will not allow the Alternator to Charge the Battery and will cause a Not Start. Let me know what you find out. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help I can get! Thanks!
