Look at the battery cables and especially where they bolt up to the battery. Make sure there is not corrosion on the post and the cable ends. Take a wire brush to the post and end to get it good and shiny. Then make sure the cable end is tight on the battery and hopefully the fixes your problem

2004 aztek wont start


If it comes to having to buy a starter, I'd recommend a new starter over a used one.

As for the *click* then nothing that's been happening... if the battery is bad, you would hear a *tick-tick-tick-tick-tick* sound. That's the starter solenoid magnetizing and hitting the starter connection. If you hear just one single *click*, I'm guessing you either have a bad starter or a bad connection.

Could be the anti-theft security or the neutral safety switch if it is an automatic trans.
Can you crank it in neutral ?

95 Pontiac Grand Am GT V6 just died wont start? starter is good, dont know if alternator or what?


If the engine will not crank, and the battery is fully charged, the only thing in play is the starter circuit. The ignition and alternator do not get involved until after the engine is started.
If the engine died and will not crank, you would need to check for voltage at the starter with the key switch in the start position.
You may need a manual with wiring diagrams to trace the circuits.

Please advise me that how to change vz commodre inhibitor switch ?


Have your starter checked. Mine did the same thing. In the beginning it was slow cranking over. Then it just stopped turning over all together. Is it a stick or automatic? If stick get a push start from friends if it runs fine then you know it's the starter. Good luck hope this helped.

1988 Ford Ranger truck, new battery and new alternator but car won't start, it just clicks?


the clicks are a signature of a bad battery, since your is new, it probally is not bad, i would try to jump the car with cables, even though your battery is new, you dont know how long is sat ont he shelf before you took it home, may be weak, 1 good jump to get the motor going and the alternator will charge it right up so wont have to so it again....

the only other thing is the starting system left to look at if that dont work is the starter, try banging on it a little with a hammer, not to hard though, as someone turns the key, this will sometime free up a locked up solinoid.


Good Luck

If the battery is good and the alternator is charging, check to see if you are getting good voltage at the starter. It could be the starter or it could be your battery cables are needing replacement. I assume you have cleaned your battery terminals....that's actually the first thing to check.
