Starter could be bad or the cylinoid on the firewall.

Why ent there enough power going to my brand new starter motor seems to spin slow when i connect strait from battery

hook a volt meter up to your battery you should see around 12.5 volts. Then crank the engine and see what the voltage drops to. If it drops to less than 12 volts the battery is bad.

My 1995 GMC YUKON 5.7L 350 engine will not crank/turn over..Battery, starter, fuel pump and alternator are all brand new because of this issue but the problem still persist. I'm lost on what other...

try and turn engine by hand to make it is not seized .if ok it may have a bad electoral connection either from battery to starter or from battery to engine earth, voltage drop can be checked with a volt meter.

Car won't start, has brand new battery, but when I try to turn it over it just clicks and if I hold it down it makes a buzzing noise. Other than the starter, what else could it be?

That is a sign of a bad or weak battery. It is not getting enough juice to crank engine. Have you tried jump start. If it does jump start, the battery is bad

1998 Honda Accord Won't Start

Park neutral safety switch maybe be the reason for the no crank ! Try putting the vehicle in park ,then try to crank the engine . Testing the electrical circuit is the best way to trouble shoot this problem , along with do a voltage drop test on the starter circuit ! This will test the battery cables an connections .

How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit
Does it have a manual or automatic transmission ? Manual ? clutch switch . Looking at a wiring diagram I also see a starter cut relay ! Free wiring diagrams . Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size . Under system click engine , under subsystem click starting . Then click the search button , then click the blue link ! Check the starter cut relay also . Videos on youtube showing how to test a relay controlled circuit !

New battery and new starter but still will not crank only clicks

More than likely the charging system is not working and allowing the battery to run down/low. Put a voltmeter on the battery and raise the engine about 2000 rpm and the battery should read 13.5-15.5 volts with all electronics on (fans switch on high, flashers, wipers, headllights, defrost etc). It should also read about 13.5 volts at idle but may not depending on the load from the accessories and voltage regulator. Most important is that it will read 13.5-15.5 volts when the engine is at 2000 rpm with the accessories on. If it does not read in that range the charging system(alternator most likely) has a charging problem.

Brand new battery with 850 cold cranking amps.....lights and radio work fine...try to start the engine and it is on the passenger side by what I think is the A/c unit

That would be your starter solenoid clicking, the positive battery cable runs off the battery to it, easy way to track it down, you can test it by putting your ignition key in the on position and using a jumper wire connect the two large terminals, if the car starts replace the starter solenoid, if it doesn't do anything replace the starter.

Engine just clicks when cranked. battery is brand new. where is the starter??

Sounds like a classic ground problem for sure.
Make sure the battery terminals are really clean,try vinigar to clean them.
Bet it starts,if not check the solinoid somewhere mounted on the fender or firewall.

What battery should be used in the car?

It depends on which brand of car battery you prefer. You will get a range of different opinions on which brands are the best based on experiences with different brands.
If you are happy with the Exide brand then the battery selection depends upon which engine you have fitted in the car - the 2.2 litre or 2.4 litre. Anyhow here are some Exide models that will fit your vehicle. You need an Exide 75 size/model with the correct minimum CCA (cold cranking amps)

2.4 Litre engine - Exide 75 - 600 cold cranking amps

2.2 litre engine - Exide 75 - 525 cold cranking amps

Any large battery retailer will be able to help you select a battery suitabe for your car but many specialise in particular brands. Personally I prefer to select a heavy duty battery that is suitable for the vehicle and will offer more than the minimum required cranking amps.
