My 2002 chrysler sebring 2.4L will not start turn key and hear no clicking noise nothing at all, lights and horn work , when i jumped the battery it did nothing no clicking. what should i try next?

Check if you have power at the starter from the ignition key
Try give direct power to the starter, if still not starts, you have a bad starter

1999 cadillac catera won't start (battery ok). my engine light stays on and there is sometimes a clicking sound from the steering wheel column. any suggestions?

Starter or starter solenoid. Turn the key to start, put a test light on the ignition wire on the starter solenoid, if you have power then it's a bad starter.

My 98 Monte Carlo won't start. The lights, radio, windows all work, but when I turn the key nothing happens.

check the fuses there is a starter fuse, if not check the starter for power at the small wire if no power could be the relay,if you have power at the small wire its the starter that's bad.

I have a 98 Cadillac Catera. The problem is when I turn the key the car doesn't turn over.I think it is the switch because lights & gauges are staying on with key turned off. I can jump the starter...

Hello, from the description that you have given I think you may be right, I think that the switch has passed its use by date. However have it checked by an auto electrician to confirm this before spending to much money. Best of luck with it, hope this helps.

Reset 98 cadillac catera alarm

You can get one from the dealer or on ebay.
I would recommend an aftermarket unit with car starter. Much cheaper, 2 remotes and starts the car as well.
