Check the shift selector located on the side of the transmission,The truck won't crank if it doesn't know what gear it's in,since it will only crank in neutral or park.

When I turn key I get click but will not start


I single click typically indicates a bad starter solenoid and a new starter will generally fix the problem.

I series of rapid clicks when the key is held in the crank positon usually indicates a weak or dead battery. a new battery will usually solve this issue.

A bad connection at the battery can also cause a single click but typically the whole car will go dead for a brief period and then everything will again turn on. Cleaning the battery terminals will typically resolve this issue.

Replaced transmission with a used one and now it will not start. The indicator on the shift column does not show the gear that has been selected.


The shift cable linkage is likely the culprit. It won't start because the car cannot tell what gear it is in (it needs to be in park or neutral for the starter to operate).

Turn ignition and nothing, new starter new battery


ignition switch, in steering column, check all fuses ! does starter have a new solonoid ? it should. can't do one and not the other. although stranger things have happened. check all wire connections, tight enough ? right location, are battery terminals tight, a parts store clerk forgot to tighten them on , this happened to my daughter. Is it all the way in park, or neutral, the gear shift lever ? starter or solonoid faulty ! starter motor pinion jammed into flywheel !

My 2007 tundra went dead. The ignition won't start


There are several possibilities ranging from a defective starter, to bad cable connections, to the onboard security system locking out the starter relay, or an aftermarket accessory interfering with the starter circuit, or a locked-up/damaged engine.

I have had vehicles towed into my shop for similar complaints when the only problem was that the customer was using a cheap duplicate key that they had made at the hardware store that did not have the required computer chip in it.

I have also had vehicles towed in where the customer had replaced the battery and did not have good cable connections or forgot to connect one of the wires that was supposed to to get hooked-up to the battery connector.

Then there are the questions: Are you getting any kind of "clicking" noises when turning the key or is it completely dead? If it is clicking, WHAT is clicking? Is it the starter motor itself that you hear or just the starter motor relay? Do you have battery power at the starter "S" terminal when turning the key? If not, is the transmission selector in "PARK"? Does the shift indicator on the dash indicate that the transmission range sensor is in "PARK"? (possible defective transmission range sensor) Are there any fault codes stored in ANY of the modules connected to your onboard computer network?

It is really hard to say without being able to see the truck.

2003 honda accord - starter does not make a sound when you turn the key. I have installed new battery and replaced the positive cable end. The head lights and all accessories work fine.


If the head lights and accessories work, your main fuse is good. Make sure your gear selector is all the way in the park park position. The gear indicator light should be illuminated. if the light doesn't illuminate in Park, but illuminates in the other gear positions the shift cable is out of adjustment. adjust the cable and recheck.
The next step would be to test the starter. Do this by first turning the ignition switch off. To be safe take the key out of the ignition. Unplug the small wire at the starter solenoid and take a jumper wire connected to the starter solenoid and touch it to the positive side of the battery (The battery should be connected to the vehicle).
-If the starter still doesn't operate. The starter is faulty and should be replaced.
-If the starter operates (spins), you have a starter circuit wiring issue. You'll have to do a series of pinpoint test to determine the fault. It could be a faulty ignition switch, starter cut relay, clutch pedal switch for manual trans. or a gear selector switch for an auto trans. or an open in the wiring harness to the starter. -hope this helps.

1995 toyota avalon will not start and gear shift is frozen -just had car serviced yesterday. battery seems good, dash lights come on and there is just a loud clicking sound. Car will not start, gear...


Sounds like a battery problem. The clicking sound is usually the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter but not enough voltage or amps. There has to be enough power or you will not be able to move shifter assuming you pushed the brake pedal down while trying to shift out of park. And, it hasn't been noted whether it is a manual or auto trans.

Starter on a 2001 Taurus


1. Do you hear a clicking when you turn the key trying to start the vehicle? If so, then it is usually the starter solanoid.

If not...

2. Do you have power? Turn on headlights and try starting the vehicle. Do the lights dim? This will indicate a battery problem. If the lights do not dim, this indicates a strong battery.

3. Is the engine turning over but will not fire up. If so, do you have gasoline? Check for spark will be the next thing to check.

Good luck.
