There are generally three possible causes:

1) Loose/corroded connections: check and clean connections and in particular the main earth lead from the car battery to the car body and the connections to the starter motor.. A bad connection will not provide the large current required by the starter motor.

2) Weak battery: if the battery is a few years old, then it may not be able to provide the large current to drive the starter motor. Get the battery tested (usually for free).

3) Faulty or worn Starter motors which gets stuck.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

My 1997 chevy tahoe does not start right away.


Sounds like a starter problem, suggest you get it checked at your local trusted mechanic the next time it starts... If the starter is your problem it wont start for many more times.

Car wont start...sometimes


Sounds like a bad starter solenoid, usually cheapest and easiest to replace the starter and solenoid as a unit. It is always best to check for power between the solenoid and the starter with a test light, if the solenoid clicks but the test light doesn't light up you have found the problem in the solenoid.

Engine starting problem


Problem is probably the starter motor. The windings probably have a burnt spot and wont turn over readly.
