I have a 1998 4 X Tahoe. When I turn the switch on, clicking sounds under dash and then nothing. Battery seems strong, checked connections, all good. Could it be a starter relay? Thanks so much!!! Ed

An easy way too see if its the battery is to turn the headlights on, and try to start it, if the lights dim the battery is to low, if the battery checks ok, then it sounds like the starter solenoid located on the starter it self, a new starter and solenoid should be around $100 and take about 30 min. to install

All lights seems to be strong but wont start no click from starter

Try putting it in neutral and starting it. If it starts, it is the neutral safety switch. If not, look under dash at the brake peddle arm. There is a switch on it for the brake lights and safety when starting. Make sure it ismaking good contact.. Make sure the battery cables are not caroded where they connect to the solenoid. The solenoid is under the hood by the battery. Tha hot cable connects to it on one side, and then a cable that goes to the starter is on the other side. Take the hot side loose and clean it with sandpaper. If it is covered with a white powder, coke or pepsi removes it real well. Reconnect it and try to start it. If it doesn't start, check the small wire on the solenoid. It connects to the front most small post on the side. You can take it loose, and with the switch on, you can take a screwdriver and touch the battery cable you just cleaned and the post at the same time and the engine should turn over and start. If it does start, then youre ignition switch is bad. You can hook a push button starter or replace switch.

Sounds like a faulty / intermittent Earth connection. Check all the battery and earth leads where they connect to the Battery, Engine, Starter Motor and Body. If possible disconnect, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint that could cause a poor connection, and reconnect making sure all are tight.

2007 Tahoe wont start

if the vehicle has factory anti theft check all the fuses under the hood as well as the one under the dash and if they are good listen for the starter relay under the hood for a clicking sound when someone tries to start it. if it dosn't make any sound replace it. this should solve the problem.

Dead battery on tahoe 2005 - now no power to ignition

provided you disconnected the battery before you charged it, its probably just a new battery you need, but if you did not diconnect it you have probably done damage to the starter motor and maybe the alternator and god knows what else

My 98 taurus wont start

Check the battery cable connections. If they are loose or have corrosion on them, it would result in what you describe. Also check the wires to the starter, same thing, you need to have tight, clean connections. This should be the problem, let me know how you make out. Curt

My 1998 s10 2.2 truck will not start

-If the starter is only clicking or it is acting as if the clutch pedal was never pushed down- it is either one two things, (1) the click, click sound may be due to a bad battery connection or bad wire contact to the starter motor. (2) the neutral saftey switch which is attached to the clutch master cylinder on the inside of the vehicle, (under the dash) is deffective or needs adjusting-it is easier to simply replace it., no complex tools are needed for either repair, just a voltmeter to check wire connections on the battery to starter motor, or a small screwdriver driven socket to remove the screws holding the lower part of the dash together (below the steering column)- I hope this was helpful, I ran into a lot of problems after I swapped an engine and rebuilt the transmission on my 98 s10 but I eventually worked most of the problems out.

Get a new battery. The battery seems to be too drained of power. It will still light the dash but does not have enough power to turn the starter.Of course, before buying the battery, have it tested. Probably has a dead cell.

On the air conditioner, it seems you may have the condenser drain hose pulled out of the dash hole that leads to the outside and the water that condenses goes into the car instead of to the street. Of course, it also could be that the plastic housing is cracked and the water leaks out through that.
