Car won't start just click


Have you checked to see if you can turn the crank with a wrench ?
And are the cables good from the battery to the starter ?

Won't turn over


Even though all your other electrical bits are working it could be that your battery doesn't have enough juice to crank the engine. It doesn't take much power to run the radio, lights, etc, but cranking the engine requires the battery to have a very strong charge. If your battery is more than 5 years old, that's very likely the issue. I'd start there. Also, be sure to check the battery terminals and ground for corrosion and clean if necessary. If replacing the battery doesn't solve the problem it could be the starter solenoid or a loose electrical connection somewhere.

Won't start. key works in aux position but not when turned all the way


If you have power in aux position(ex.)radio works but doesn't when you put the key in the start position,the ignition switch is bad,the contacts are warn out for starting/cranking&run positions,these are used everytime you start your car,but auxillary is ony used once in awhile(ex.)your sitting listening to music while waiting for someone to come,but if you do have radio in the run position,but no cranking/starting you could have a blown resistor on fire wall or fuse for ignition,or the starter has called it quits,good luck I don't know if the starter is clicking rapid or just one click or just no power not cranking or cranking a better description of everything that happens will make this alot easier

Truck won't start


If the engine will not crank, it could be the starter, the neutral safety switch, or a bad connection.
A mechanic would check the starter circuit back to the key switch.

95 miata just quit running at a traffic light and now will turn over but won't fire


sounds like blown timing. do you have spark? Also could be a fuel pump crapped out. Its turning and turning but wont start? Check the fuel rail while someone is trying to turn over.

Won't start no crank lights and radio work slam hood and it starts sometimes could this be the ignition switch


It is more likely the battery terminals not making good contact,or the starter is going out,try cleaning the battery terminals,and the battery post,if this does not help,have someone hold the key to start position,and tap on the starter lightly with a hammer,if it tries to start,then replace the starter,if this was at all helpful,please rate thank you.

Car won't start after driving a distance


may be the starter, when it hot it won't make contact, try to have some one tap on the starter while you turn the key.
