When turning key I get a single click and nothing else. I have changed the selenoid and have now lost all power, not even a dome light. The battery is charged.

Sometimes it might be the start engine that got stucked I had the same problem and I solved by going under the car by the driver's side at about the midle front of the car, then look up for to cilinders joined together a big and a small one there might be 2 red wires that go to one of the cilinders the small one, the thin red wire has a plastic locking cap it might be lose thinghten it well, then get something hard like a wrench and hit both cilinders not to hard, not to soft, several times it will cause that the sulphate accumulated inside the start engine releases the inside rotor that might be stucked try to start the engine and if it does take your car to a mechanic and ask him to clean the sulphate accumulated inside the start engine so it won't happen again in a long long time.

Good luck

Clean your battery posts. Sometimes they look like they are clean but even the thinnest film of corrosion will take out you electrical system. Make sure all connections are tight.

Lost power steering, car died, changed battery, and barley made it home. The battery has power, but when you turn the key on the dome light and other lights, radio, windows, etc don't work.


Sounds like the vehicle is not charging you may need a new alternator get the car going with jump leads again and test the voltage at the battery terminals with a DC volt meter expect 13.5-14.5 if you get less than 13.5 your alternator is bad or wiring fault also check the alternator belt is tight.

Starter relay


Depends. When you turn the key to start, the only thing that has power is the outside lights and the starter relay. In the on position everything but the starter should have power. So that will have to be sorted out. If some things are dead with the key on, either you have lost power between the battery and the fuse box, or the key switch is faulty.

Intermittent starting problem. Turning key does nothing.


Sounds like you could have a faulty switch, but I would check the starter selenoid first. Sometimes when the selenoid goes bad it will behave in the way you describe. If, with your key in the on position, (not on start), you can jump power from the hot wire, (positive), post on your selenoid to the hot wire that goes from the selenoid to the starter and the starter then engages, but doesn't otherwise, it is a selenoid problem. Good Luck! I hope you find this very helpful!

Pull the battery and have a parts store check it to see if it has a bad cell or two. It is possible that even though you charged it, the battery just won't work for you. Hope that helps.

Won't start lights dim and then brighten


Did you try to boost battery? Sounds like low charge. Check battery terminals for tight and clean as well as groung connection at body and power connection at starter for clean. If battery OK test for power on starter wires. Large wire will have contant battery power small wire will have battery power when key is in crank position. If power ok on both it will probably need a starter. Hope this helps...Good Luck.

Won't turn over


You probably need a new battery. Starting takes a LOT more current out of the battery than the dome lights, etc.

The last couple of batteries that failed on me gave me no warning.
