Using key start, instrument panel illuminates but why won't it turn over?


Dirty battery posts...(loose) or locked starter...sometimes you can tap the starter with a hammer to make it work one time to confirm...Hope this helps.

A couple of months ago, I had an incident with my 2001 malibu. I went to crank the car, and it made a terrible screeching noise. The car would not crank, and all the gauges would not come on. Also, th


It's possible the ignition switch itself is the culprit, as it controls power to all of those things. The car is probably safe to drive as long as it starts up, but I'd look into getting a new switch for it ASAP.

Where does the screeching noise seem to originate from?

Why is there no reistance in my ignition until after starter is engaged?


Replace the ignition assembly on the steering column. The return spring is in that module. Be sure to put your original lock cylinder back into the new assembly so you can use the same key. If you get a used one with the key cylinder in it, make sure you get the key that matches the lock. If not, switching the original lock back in is a real pain. With the correct key, you just rotate the key to the start/ignition position, push a nail/probe into the hole on top of the assembly and the lock cylinder should be able to pull out.

Atos ignition problems and screeching


If you hear a click under the hood from the starter the starter solenoid but starter is defective and you should rebuild it. If that is not the case I would replace the ignition starter switch, this is the electrical switch the key cylinder actuates to turn on the electrical system and engage the starter.

I have a 99 Ford Superduty 7.3 Diesel. It is making a really bad grinding/screeching sound just after it starts and is warming up. It wouldn't ******* off all the way even after the key was turned


indicates that the starter motor is stuck in the ring gear
possibly faulty starter relay or starter solenoid
pull the starter as the pinion over ride clutch is probably damaged ( noise ) and have the start circuit and relay checked
have the starter bench tested for serviceability by an accredited auto electrician

Wont start


the clicking noise is usually 2 things, step on try jump starting car and if starts have battery tested as it is probably bad (free testing at most chain auto stores), the other usual problem is that the starter has gone bad, when whoever tried turning off car while driving might have put into start mode and burnt out the starter when it engaged at high speed.

When i turn the key forward the engine wants to start but doesnt just makes the roaring noise and doesnt start


It could be the starter, is it high pitch screeching, metal against metal, sound? Or more of whine? If it's metal against metal, the teeth on the flywheel ring gear might be damaged. If it's a high whine you are probably hearing the electric motor part of the stater and the "starter drive" is bad. The stater drive is part of the starter, it's the gear that engages with the flywheel gear. It is a one way clutch, it is supposed to hold when the starter is turning the engine. But, freewheel when the engine starts so it doesn't over rev the starter motor. When the drive goes bad it freewheels both ways. If you think the flywheel teeth are damaged you could try turning the engine by hand a little, WITH THE KEY OFF! Sometimes you can put a wrench on the alternator pulley nut and turn the engine a little. This will move the damaged teeth away from the starter and it might work now. Good luck.
