Car wont start but lights work


Please provide with more detail. Does it make a click sound when turning the ignition? Does it crank?
Have you tried to jump the battery with jumping cable or tried it on a know good batteries?
- If the car does make a cranking noised then the starter is good but weak battery.
- If there is no noise or clicking, then dead battery.
- If you can hear the clicking when turning the key to start, then check for battery GROUND.
- If battery were tested and it read 12.5 - 14.0 DCV. Then your starter are bad.

There also other thing to check like security alarm system with ignition switch kill... But most common problems with fail to start are mention above.

Ford excursion bad starter noise


check that the pinion teeth is the same pitch as the starter motor that you took out . That is the only reason for the noise unless you have not refitted the motor correctly and it is out of alignment.

2002 Forester Subaru won't start.


Sounds like a winding has gone down on the starter, and if the starter stops on that winding, just the solenoid clicks, when it does it tap the starter body a few times and try to start it again, it can just move the rotor enough to get it to start, but it will need a new starter

Hi my 95 model vs commondore would not start,charged battery it wont windover and makes this clicking noise.


the clicking noise is from the starter motor not getting enough charge to wind over properly...check battery is holding a full 12 volt charge.
if commodore is manual - put it into third gear and get someone to help you rock the car back and forward (with handbrake off and ignition off of course)if starter motor is 'jamming' this can release it. ive seen many bush mechanics hit the side of the starter motor in holdens with a hammer to release it also.( with an auto this is your only option.)
other wise if battery is proven to be good - go to the wreckers and buy another starter motor.

Starter in 2001 protege is clicking. Does the starter need to be replaced or can i clean off the contact points for a better connection from the battery to the motor


I would start by cleaning and check the battery posts. Then ensure you have a good solid connection from your power source. "Jumper cables, Battery charger" etc. Typically bad starters don't just click. If the Bendix is bad it would free spin "Hum". If the windings are bad it wont make any noise at all. The click you are hearing is a quick surge of power that is then stopped. Good luck.

When turning the key to start, it does nothing. then you will try again and it starts. Is this a starter or a relay problem


I WOULD CHECK BATTERY CABLES FIRST.MAKE SURE THEY ARE CLEAN AND TIGHT.IF ALL IS GOOD CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.6 VOLTS.IF BATTERY GOOD.STARTER SOLENOID OR STARTER FAULTY.REMOVE STARTER AND SOLENOID TAKE TO AUTO PARTS STORE THEY WILL DO A CURRENT DRAW TEST TO SEE IF STARTER HAS A SHORT OR HIGH CURRENT DRAW DUE TO WORN FIELD WINDING OR ARMATURE TURN OFF RADIO FIRST BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE SO YOU WONT LOSE RADIO PLAYING CODE.

When trying to start it makes a a winding noise maybe like a relay switch. when you turn on the key on the driver side under hood you can hear a clicking/winding noise and the starter doesn't even turnover...


First check your battery, if it is OK, then it can be corroded terminals at the battery itself or where the heavy cables terminate; at the starter input terminal (+ cable) and where the negative is attached to either the block or chassis. Both ends of these cables should be cleaned now and then and either dielectric grease or even petroleum jelly can provide some protection against renewed corrosion. NOTE: ALWAYS disconnect the negative battery terminal first! If a tool slips and ends up between the + terminal and any grounded point, it may melt the tool. If the negative is first to be disconnected, it doesn't matter if you slip on this one.

Car won't start, so replaced the battery with a better one with a warranty, but car still won't start. It makes a clicking noise when I try to start it. The radio came on & the gauges were sweeping...


check the battery connections on the ground side9black wire) make sure the connections are tight and clean. Check the positive wire and make sure the battery cable is clean and tight and no frays or nicks on either wire. Clean the positive wire on the starter . May be a starter relay or solinoid stuck or the starter has a dead spot in the starter windings. make sure the starter is tight to the engine block too.
