If your starter has 2 or more small wires on it you may have switched the terminals. If you have a separate starter relay you can bypass the relay with a jumper cable and send 12 volts to the starters only main cable. It should crank, have it in Park (Auto) or Neutral (stick shift). If the starter does not crank bypassed then the only thing missing is a good ground. Use a pair of jumper cables and try grounding the starter case and connect the cable to a good ground. With the gauges dancing usually a bad ground is the reason, so the jumper cables will help with that problem too, at least for test reasons.

If you had the old starter tested, then you know it was the first problem. But if the old starter was not tested your problem could be a bad starter relay, an ignition switch,or finally a bad ground. Check the grounding of the remote starter relay, check for a plug-in connector off the end of the steering column for corrosion.

Replace the starter, the solenoid cant engage the starter because it is locked up, hence the extreme voltage drop with the fan when you try to start it with the fan on.

This sounds primarily like a starter on it's way out. The next time the starter will not engage the first time, have someone else hold the key into the start position and you tap the starter with a hammer and if it engages, replace your starter. Let me know if you need instructions on how to do so.

a bad starter relay would do it but i dont know where the starter relay is located on your car, bad battery cable and starter connections would do it a bad ground connection would also do it, and sometimes but not very often a bad or worn ignition switch can do it also.

Car wont stat...battery voltage good and also good connections...will start after a chage or jump start but will not crank back up when turned off...starter solenoid clicks


If you have to jump it or charge it in order to get it started every time, I think maybe the battery is no good. Take the battery to a good auto parts store and they will test the battery free of charge. Your gages can show good battery voltage and still not have enoughcranking amps to start the engine.

GMC Sierra Won't Start. Battery Good. Tried Jump


If you know the batter is good.

Check the Starter to see it is getting power.

Get a test light [6.00] and see if the starter will light up the test light.
If not - then you may need a new starter. From the sounds of it you might want to take it to a professional as this can be a very labor intense job because the starter has to come out the bottom.

does the starter make a "clicking noise" when it wont turn over? check your battery cables at the battery and at the starter solenoid....if it not a connection , then it sounds like a bad starter relay/solenoid

Truck wont turn over


Check for power to and from ignition switch,there is also a fused link that can protect the wiring, or keep it from working.Jump starting can make this happen if the proper connections are not made.look at the starter is wiring ok?Make sure you move the shifter out of park and then back,to be sure it is all the way in park,as any miss alignment will not let starter engage.Good luck!
