The starter is malfunction at this time. it could also be a ignition issue as well. here is a quick test procedure that will help you isolate the issue. Follow carefully, and with caution.

Step 1
Check for 12 volts on the large wire attached to the top terminal on the starter relay(with a voltmeter). It should have battery voltage. If not, the battery, terminals or wire is bad.


Step 2
Check the small wire on the solenoid for power when the key is in the start position. Remove the small wire on the solenoid and have a helper hold the key in the start position. Check the wire for battery voltage. If there is voltage, the starter is bad. If there is no voltage, replace the wire.


Step 3
Check the fuse in the fuse box under the hood on the left fender well. If it is good, check the relay by pulling it out and checking for power at one terminal with the key off. If there is no power, the problem is in the fuse box between the fuse and the relay. If there is power, have the helper hold the key in the start position once again and check for power at another terminal from the ignition key. If there is power, the relay is bad. If there is no power, the starter circuit is suspect.


Step 4
Check to see if there is power to the neutral safety switch if there is no power at the relay. Use the voltmeter to check for power with the key in start. If there is power going in, check for power going out. If there is no power going in, the security system or ignition switch is suspect. If there is power going in and none coming out, the switch is bad. If there is power coming out, the problem is between the neutral switch and the relay.


Step 5

Remove the cover on the bottom of the steering column. Check the solid yellow wire for power when the key is in the start position. If there is no power, the ignition switch is bad.

When a car doesn't start, either it is not getting gas or not getting spark.
Gas system consists of fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pump relay, and the fuel pressure regulator and then the injectors. Fuel pump and relay and filter give the most problemsome troubles when car doesn't start.
Spark consists of crank sensor, ignition module, coil packs/distributor, spark plugs & wires. Crank sensor is most troublesome when car doesn't start

    bad battery or cable connections are corroded and not metal to metal contact. Or starter relay or solenoid is bad. You can check relay with an ohmmeter. You can take a screwdriver and jump terminals on the solenoid to see if she kicks over while ignition is in the ON position

SOURCE: tried to start car, battery ok, starter turns over

Might check to see if fuel pump needs to be reset. There is a reset in the trunk on the drivers side. Check all fuses. Listen if you can hear the fuel pump running when you turn the key to the RUN position, could be a bad fuel pump. Make sure you have gas, fuel gauge may not be working. Sounds like you have a fuel issue. Hope this helps, good luck.

SOURCE: for about 2 weeks my car has been hard to start

sounds like the battery wire to the starter is possibly the culprit, it may have a bad spot in it not allowing enough voltage to the starter. also depending on the brand solenoid you purchased it is possible to get a bad one. i recommend borg warner electrical products. i hope this helps.

Cliks but wont turn


What is clicking but wont turn? I'll take a guess here and say that you are trying to start your car. When you do, you hear a clicking noise but the car won't start?? If so, you need a new battery. Your battery isn't holding enough of a charge to start the car.

Car wont start when hot, starter wont kick in


Not sure how you could check the starter hot, but the main components are the battery, key switch, neutral safety switch, and starter. A mechanic would check for voltage at each connection.

Clicking noise is the sound of the starter being bad and not having enough power to turn the motor over. Replace the starter.

Engine won't start and if starter is replaced does it have any other problems


Engine wont start.If car battery voltage is low then engine wont start.The fully charged battery will show 12 volt.But if battery is showing 12 volt.Then check the battery to starter connection.If that is also checked ok then check voltage for starter itself.The starter is also a 12 volt part.But if the starter is faulty then it has to be replaced.If you start the car but if its not starting then its starter fault.But if the car makes cranking noise but its not getting turn over then there are many other possibilities.But if the car is not even cranking then its faulty starter.Get this checked and confirmed before replacing any part.This should help.Thanks.

Car wont start: 1. Had it tested technician sad


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
