Civic coupe 2007 starts when it feels like it. The batterie is new so is the starter. I turn the key and when I go to start it I just hear a CLICK which seems to come from under the car and wont start


You need to have battery cables positive an ground voltage drop tested ! I know you have no clue on automotive electrical testing . Voltage Drop Testing the Starter we as professional technicians test electrical systems , not just replace parts ! I suggest you find a qualified repair shop , so you don't hurt yourself .

Wont start the starter is working yet it won crank what can I do


Did you check power an grounds using voltage drop testing , did you check battery voltage an computer control at the starter motor relay in the under hood fuse / relay box ? Instead of guessing you need to learn how to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an test ! The powertrain control module controls the starter motor operation ! Starter Voltage Drop VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis ,If you pull the relay an jump pin's 30 & 87 the starter should crank ,test the circuit starter motor side ! Pins 85 & 86 are the control side ., Pin 85 or 86 forget which one has battery voltage with the key on . The one with out voltage is control from the engine computer ! Also if the anti theft system is active it wont start !

Car wont start after leaving key in ignition,ie went to start car, but phone rang, key in ignition, now wont start.this has happened my wife on several occasions. starts fine on a push


Check the fuse box for the starter relay, and pull out to check pins for corrosion / bad contact. The fact it start on a bump with the key on leads me to suspect the start / crank position of the electrics. Get a knowledgeable person to run through the crank circuit with a meter, also check the condition of earth straps and starter cables. Could be the ignition switch is faulty?

Check the starting circuit fuses. Most likely its a bad starter. If you can easily get at it. Drop it out attach a ground line between the body of the starter and any clean metal under the car. Have someone look at the starter while you try starting. If it does noithing when you turn the key to start, its time for a new one.

No power when i turn the key


Sounds like a bad ignition switch or a bad main electrical connection between the battery and the switch. Check all the battery connections and grounds for clean tight connections. Check for power going to the switch.

My key locks up and wont turn, my wife's key works fine


Compare the 2 keys and see if yours has a bur on it, take your wife's nail file to it and file it down if you find one. Put a drop of oil on your key and slide it in and out of the ignition. Take the fourty pounds of bling off your key chain if you have any, the quickest way to wear out a lock and key. Does your key have a chip? Hope this helps.

03 monte carlo wont start... turn key to AC position, hear electrical motor sound never heard before... turn to ON position, all gauges drop to zero


the noise your are hearing is the fuel pump, you might need a new battery by the sounds of it, or your ground is corroted or your connections arent tight and could be causing the power failure,check your battery system over and down to the starter, if its not grounded right it wont start it will just go blank.

1999 GMC Suburban 350 wont run


Per your description, it sounds like you are missing an injector pulse from the ECM.
Check the under-hood fuse box and verify the "ECM1" fuse is good (12 volt supply to injectors).
With the key in the run position, verify you have 12 volts at an injector.
Barrow or purchase a "noid" light to verify you have an injector ground pulse from the ECM.
Let me know what you find and we can proceed from there.

My 98 S10, stop and don't start anymore. the compression test is ok,but no spark....and the fuel pump have no power...that means 12 volts is interrupted in some place....but where????


first check the condition of all circuit wiring for damage. Inspect all connection to the starter motor, solenoid, ignition switch, and battery, including all ground connections. Clean and tighten all connections as required
next
Check the voltage drop between the negative battery terminal and the vehicle frame by placing one lead of a voltmeter on the grounded battery post (not the cable clamp) and the other lead on the frame. Turn the ignition key to the START position and note the voltage drop.
Check the voltage drop between the positive battery terminal (not the cable clamp) and the starter terminal stud. Turn the ignition key to the START position and note the voltage drop.
Check the voltage drop between the starter housing and the frame. Turn the ignition key to the START position and note the voltage drop.
If the voltage drop in any of the above is more than 1 volt, there is excessive resistance in the circuit. Clean and retest all cables not within specification. Replace as necessary.
let me know what happens
