Use a light bulb 12v connect the negative to the chasis of your car, then connect the positive wire of the light bulb to the starter solenoid (small wire from starter relay). The solenoid is like a cylinder where the large battery cable were connected. then it has a small wire from the stater relay. If the light bulb will turn on as you start, then the problem is in the stater motor. it has to be repair, The carbon maybe the problem.

Truck won't start lights etc are on (power) there is a click and the engine light is one 2007 1500

Have the battery and the connections at the battery checked, remove the battery terminals first and clean them then try to start it and if the battery tests good then i would say you have a bad starter. and when replacing the starter check the big cable connection at starter. good day.

My 1994 Chevrolet C1500 will not start

check the fuseable links, some are at the starter and some may be by alternator and some by the battery, it sounds like they may have over heated and brunt, also a test to do before check links, take a test light and have someone crank the key and hold it. while you check for power at the big and small wires to starter, if it has power at both then the starter is your problem.hope this helps,

I just changed the starter and the truck still wont start it just clicks

did you check the battery? the starter may not have been your problem. check the clamps and posts for corrosion. take them off and sand or wire brush both surfaces til clean. put it back together making sure connections are tight. if it still won't start,put a battery charger on it for several hours. if you have one,then try to start it again. if it still won't start,take the battery to your local walmart or auto parts store.They usually will test it for free. It may have to be replaced. good luck

2001 jeep grand cherokee won't start. i turn key on and all power comes on inside but wont crank.

Your dealership can read the codes entered into your car's computer every time it malfunctions. Same problem as yours, however, also gets worse, back up lights won't work, sticks in park (in the gas stationing) (very embarrassing), will only run with foot on gas, etc. It was the "neutral safety switch". $500 fix but runs and starts perfectly all the time.

Car wont start, acts like battery is dead. battery shows full charge. full lights, buzzers, etc. put it on charger-didnt start...cleaned cable connections-didnt start...tried to jump with truck-didnt...

Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.

1996 Chevy 1500 will not start...

First thing I'd do is check all ground sources/straps for good clean contact at all points, especially from block or frame to firewall area, then check all fuses in panel at drivers side end of dash or wherever located on your particular vehicle, then check all fuses etc, in power distribution box under the hood, for blown or corroded contacts.

Complete power loss - 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500

It sounds like either alternator or computer, I f you can get it to run on its own pull the positive battery cable off the battery and if it dies its your alternator. And this is no real way to check the computer except going up to a AutoZone and they can check codes for free
