Take the battery to an auto parts store and have it tested first. IF the battery has a dead cell then the starter can't draw enough voltage to work. Next thing you'll have to ask is WHY is the battery dead/bad? Is it old? Did I drain it down by leaving something on like a interior light, or worst case senario, do you have a bad altenator thats not charging the electrical system and draining down the battery. So get the battery tested and if its good and charged fully and you're having the same problem then it may just be the starter.

1) Low battery, not enough juice.

2) Starter housing dirty, and engine block area where it connects to. Starter gets ground off of the engine block. (Negative connection) Positive connection from battery goes to solenoid. Clean starter, and engine area where it mounts.

3) Brushes for starter are completely worn down. The click you hear/heard, is one of the last it will make before the brushes are changed.

Test the starter off of the car with jumper cables, and a small jumper wire for the solenoid. Starter works you know it isn't the problem.

Starter spins but will not engage

this could be a few problems that cause this,

1. your battery could be weak and not have enough juice to engage the starter solenoid

2. the bendix could be messed up

3. this is probaly the most common problem, the starter solenoid went out

the best course of action would be to have your battery load tested, and if its fine, replace the starter

New battery, but car won't start

Try checking the starter for corosion if any is present, first disconnect the battery and remove all the corosion from the starter bolts and starter wires and then give it a try.

2003 Alfa Romeo V6 2.5 wont start

When starting - is it turning slow ??
If so - the starter could be binding to tightly against the flywheel..
Put in a few starter shimms.. They will back the starter slightly away from the flywheel & should turn with more ease..

My 04 accord won't start and battery is fine. What should I check

It sounds like the battery has a bad cell. Take the battery and have it load tested. I have also had starters go bad without making any noise.

Definitely sounds like a starter. When a bad starter is cold, it will start the car. After riding around for a while or after several starts in a row, the starter heats up and won't start without a boost. Since you've ruled out the battery and alternator, I'm positive a new starter will solve your problem. Good Luck!
