The solenoid on the starter could be bad. The solenoid has a contact in it, when power is supplied to the solenoid, the contact powers the Bendix to kick out the starter drive and also contacts the starter itself to make it turn. The contact to make the starter turn is bad, they are copper contacts, and over time, they don't make good contacts anymore. You'll need at least a solenoid, easier to get another starter.

Disconnected battery and now won't start


Won't start as in no rotation of the starter motor and no clicking sound? Or starter turns slowly with the engine? Or the starter and engines turns normally but will not start? Or starter turns normally but engine will not turn?

Wont start. Starter tries to engage but theres a "whirring" noise instead of the car starting


Sounds like starter solenoid is failing to kick in. The whirring is most likely the starter motor turning, but the teeth aren't engaging on the flywheel ring gear due to failed solenoid.

I have a 1998 Chevy Cavalier that I can not figure out why it won't start. The following list of parts are brand new: Battery, PCM, Park Neutral Safety Switch, Alternator, Ignition Switch, and finally...


Your car has a sealed transmission, in order to check it you have to go to the dealer or a transmission

shop, its not owner servicable. takes dextron vi, 4 speed 7.4 quarts, 3 speed 4quarts

And as far as the no start, are your plugs getting voltage, if not check your coil, if there is no spark

to your plugs the car will not fire up. good luck!

I have a 1995 honda accord and it just wont start , When i turn the key over to start it just wont turn over , i change the fuel pump and the starter is good .. it sounds like its trying to start but...


The contacts in the starter motor solenoid are worn, the clicking that you can hear is the solenoid being pulled in, but not making contact to allow the main battery voltage/current from getting to the starter motor. Their are 2 things you can do to get you out of trouble.

Rock the car back and forward whilst in gear, stop and try again.

Tap the side of the starter motor cover with a piece of wood or soft hammer. This will wiggle the contacts and allow for starting.

These may get the car up and running, but ultimately the contacts will have to be replace.

If you can find the starter motor, the solenoid is the small round or triangle box on top or to the side f the starter motor, usually with two small wires going to it.

Dodge neon turns over but wont start.


Check battery voltage!

Get someone to help you, acquire a hammer and a stick thick enough to absorb a hit from the hammer and slim enough to shimmer its way to your starter. While your turning your key over to start the motor, have your helper have the stick up against the starter and giving it a few whacks. If it kicks over then its your starter. Still sounds to me to be a starter!

03 monte carlo wont start... turn key to AC position, hear electrical motor sound never heard before... turn to ON position, all gauges drop to zero


the noise your are hearing is the fuel pump, you might need a new battery by the sounds of it, or your ground is corroted or your connections arent tight and could be causing the power failure,check your battery system over and down to the starter, if its not grounded right it wont start it will just go blank.

Starter motor dead...I think


If Its A Manual Can It Be Kick Started? If The Dash Lights Are coming On And Dont Dim When Fully Charged Its Probably The Starter Sticking . If You Hook It Up To Someone For A Jump Start Does It Start? If No Its Your Starter.
Next Time It Wont Start Try Hitting The Starter With A Hammer.
If That Works Its The Starter.
