Bryan, 1st check that the battery connections are clean and tight, and also the same for starter connections (starter is positioned between the engine and transmission, probably has 2-3 bolts and wiring connections. Have you had the battery tested? Don't buy a starter until you do. The lights and radio can work, but the battery could be undercharged enough to not be able to crank the engine over (you are correct that the 'clicking' sound is classic bad or low charge battery, but check the above 1st). A parts store can do a free check if you pull it out and bring it down. After checking the connections, try to jump start the car. Good luck. Hope this helps.

I have a 95 honda civic ex,wont start.ran fine yesterday,wont start this morning.battery is fully charged,new cap and rotor.would do u think might b my problem


if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.

Ford focus won't turn over ,was fine this morning parked up now won't start getting whinning sound from side of engine


If the temperature is low, then the engine might have struck up. You need to give heat and then try starting. If you still face the problem, then open the front and check if any wires have been cut off or else call or an mechanic to solve the problem,

Thanks

Car won't start, battery is good, won't even turn over.


These vehicles are prone to failures in the antitheft system. This will actually lock out the starter and/or injectors. Read thru this link, might be your problem.

The starter solinoid is on the top of starter. Short the two large terminals on it, if the starter turns then the solinoid is faulty. If not then the starter is faulty.

when engine won't start check battery voltage with a volt meter, at least 12 volts.check connections at starter. and yes rapping the starter with a hammer is a good starter test. when replacing the starter make sure the mounting surface is not painted. that is were the starter gets its ground, clean starter and engine block with sand paper etc..
