You either have a loose connection at the starter, or loose battery terminal.

You'd be surprised how many calls I got about your problem, and all it was, was a loose battery terminal.

Also, tap on the started itself...or the starter relay (under-hood, driver's side...in Electrical Center Box.)

Good-luck.

p.s. there is no sensor or reset for starter

Do you have any idea what would make the truck do this? after waiting sometimes 24 hours it will start maybe run for a day or maybe just a few blocks


If the starter isn't even cranking the engine then I'd be looking at the wires on the starter to make sure they're tight. If they're loose you could be losing connection from time to time. If they're tight then theres a chance the starter is almost buggard. Start with the wires.

My 99 monte carlo wont start the lights and radio work but the car wont start what do i do


If you have power but the starter won't engauge here are a few things to check 1 start at the fuse box check fuses. If the fuses are good check the starter. This time of year cold weather starters have more strain and burn out easier. Also exessive oil dripping on the starter can cause to go out because of residue build up in the starter. If the starter checks out good it is then a bad conection or wire. thanks

sounds like your starter could be heating up on you, check to see if any exhuast pipe runs close to the starter, and see if the starter has a shield protecting it from heat.

Car wont crank


I have a 2000 Olds Intrigue that has the starting problem that some people have spoke about. You turn the key and all lights come on but the car will not start nothing. I 1st replaced the ignition switch which did not correct the problem. To get around the problem I have connected a wire to my starter and ran the wire up to the battery and when the car acts up I take the wire touch the positive pole on the battery post and the starter will turn over. I then get in my car and use the key and start the car. I have not been stranded by the car since. I try the key a few times if nothing happens I'll wait a few minutes and if that does not do it I jump the starter with my wire. This has been working for the last 2 years. It's not a correction but it is a work around.

if the starter is clicking, try tapping on it with a hard piece of wood, like that of a hammer handle, while someone tries to start the car. if it starts, replace the starter. also make sure electrcal connectins on the starter are tight and clean. and check the starter relay if applicable

2000 reg clio 1.2 and SOMETIMES it will not start.


Hi, if when you turn the key to start the car the engine dont turn over as if its trying to start then this indicates that you have a problem with your starter motor it is the selanoid on the starter starting to fail

Sometimes it will turn the engine over starting the car and other times it will do nothing and you might here a slight clocking noise coming from the starter motor.

If your battery is ok and holds the charge ie the lights are bright without the car running then this indicates that your battery is ok and that the starter needs replacing. Sometimes you can get away with giving the starter motor a few taps with a hammer this sometimes clears any muck inside the starter selonoid getting it working for a bit longer but eventually it wont work at all so its best ot get this done sooner rather that later.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

2000 silverado sometimes start, other times not so much


To determine if recognizing park is the issue simply place vehicle in neutral and attempt to start with your foot firmly on the brake. Starter may have a missing tooth or starter solenoid may have an issue. I would also check ground wire to frame and connections at the starter for fraying or loose connection
