Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima

2 Answers

Starter won't turn, just one tick but no action, lights are strong, no other sound. Have not checked anything yet but does this sound like a starter? Car was driving fine but did notice car harder to start lately with many starter turns required. Progressed to sometimes when I turned the ignition on, there was no action until the second or third turn of the ignition, then the starter would turn.

If the battery and cables check out ok and power is getting to the starter then the starter is bad this sounds like it may be a relay

Ok, the first thing to check is the starter, yes. This is free to do, just remove the starter and take it to Autozone. They will connect it and test it to see if it is functioning correctly. The best part is you can purchase a new one right there if it is bad. If it is not the starter let me know and I will help with further diagnosis.

My saab 900se won't crank


If you get a click or tick sound, then that would suggest to me that your starter motor solenoid is working, but your starter motor itself is stuck or worn out.
Check power to the starter motor when turning the ignition key to the crank position. If it is receiving power, then replace the motor.

1992 mazda protege dx 4 dr won't start. Battery is only 2 months old. Makes a fast ticking sound from inside car similar to turn signal light out.


Hi Robin, As the battery is new and presumably not defective, I think you should suspect the soloniod fitted to the starter motor. If that component has become defective it will give the sound you're reporting. Depending on where you live in the world and the labour charges, you can have the contacter's replaced or the starter motor (if labour charges are high) Regards John

My starter on my 2000 Suziki quad makes a clicking sound and won't turn the engine over.


Either the starter will have to come out for testing, rebuilding, or replacing, or the battery is not strong enough to power the starter-maybe it's low on charge. Are all your battery and starter connections clean and tight? Verify the condition of your battery before you condemn the starter.

My chrysler 300 3.5 will not start


Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. The battery may be weak that's why it won't supply power to the starter.
If problem still persists then it's got to be the starter itself. If the starter is faulty, it won't turn the flywheel even you have a strong battery. If that's the case then the starter should be replaced.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Chevrolet want turn over


Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you charge the battery. If the battery is weak, there will be no enough current to the starter to kick the flywheel. One good reason why the vehicle won't turn over.
If the battery is fully charged and still won't turn, then I strongly suggest that you replace the starter itself for it can be the one faulty.
Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

When I attempt to start my car lights and everything come on but when I turn the key do not here ticking from starter or doesn't attempt to crank at all.


Sounds like bad ignition switch.Check battery voltage it should be 12-12.6 volts.If its good check for power at starter on the switch side of solenoid if you don't have power its the switch if you do have power and it won't crank its the starter thats bad.

1997 Dodge Caravan won't start - has a tick tick sound


Hi savvyuserbyo;

That tick, tick sound is probably the starter solenoid trying to activate the starter.

Here's a couple of things you can try. Take a hammer and tap the starter motor (not real hard, just medium) and then try to start it.

The 2nd thing you can do it to take a piece of wire, like lamp cord and(with someone helping) touch one end to the small terminal on the starter. (There is a large battery size wire connected to a large terminal on the starter, this is not the one you use) use the small terminal. Have your helper touch the other end to the positive terminal of the battery.

If the engine cranks. the solenoid is probably bad. If it doesnt crank the starter is bad.

The final thing to do is to remove the starter (after you disconnect the ground lead of the battery) and take it to an Auto Zone type store and have them check it out for you. BTW, starter and solenoid are sold as a unit. I just replace mine on my 94 F159 and is cost $100 exchange. If you need a replacement get a rebuilt rathert than a new. Just as good and cheaper.

Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if Appropriate. Thanks
