We put a new battery in our van but it still won't start. what could be the problem?


If the engine turns over and the starter works you will need to determine if the engine is getting spark and fuel. Let's concentrate on the starting system first. There are three major components to your starting system. The battery, the starter solenoid, and the starter. There are a couple of sub systems too that can prevent your starter from operating such as the nuetral switch.May sure the car is firmly in nuetral for testing.
If the engine doesn't turn over then you may have a problem with the starter solenoid or the starter itself. You can jump power directly to the starter from the battery by connecting a jumper lead to the positive side of the battery to the starter terminal on the starter. If the starter turns over then your solenoid is probably bad. If the starter will not turn you will need to remove it and have it tested. (Most parts stores will do this for free) NAPA Schucks, O'Rilies CarQuest ect.

It won't turn over


Try this procedure:
Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear or starting relay, Have someone bang on the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging the bendix gear..
Hope this helps.

2005 Altima won't start, hear clicking sound coming from fuse box,key stuck in ingintion,won;t turn over,tried to jump start.


the clicking that you hear is coming from the starter relay. sounds like your ignition starter switch or ignition lock cylinder is bad.

It sounds like you have a bad actuator. This is attached to the starter and has a solonoid that pushes the starter motor gears into the engine gear. If the solonoid is faulty this may happen. Also check alignment of the same.

1994 BMW 740i with 222,000 turns over but won't start. Removed battery, had it tested and it's good; radio, lights, windows all working fine. Driving the car on Friday, went to start it on...


Hi.

If it does turn over and electrical works, then the problem is unlikely the battery. You can try jump starting. If it cranks when jump-starting it may be a weak battery, starter motor or alternator, but I don't think that this is the problem.

Check if there is spark on all cylinders. Do a code scanning (this car is OBD1, you will need to do the scan at the dealer place or to find a BMW OBD1 tool- Universal OBD2 scanner will not work on a 1994 BMW). If the codes return misfire or mixture related errors check fuel pressure, check sensors and parts that determine the mixture (MAF/MAP, AIT, O2 sensors, IAC and EGR system), check the vacuum system for leaks and check the crank sensor.

Regards.

Don't guess on the starter motor.
You need to check for voltage to determine if it's good, or remove it and have it tested by a parts store.
The starter will have a large cable (Wire) that always has battery positive voltage to it. This is common with your battery positive.
The starter grounds by where it's bolted to the engine.
A smaller wire at the starter (solenoid) will fee positive voltage only when the key is turned to "start." If you have these, and it won't start, and your battery holds above 10 volts or so, your starter is bad.
