I had this same problem. If you've already replaced the starter then try this. There are two relays located right near the battery on a bracket. I changed both of those & solved that problem. I think the first relay was the problem, it had already been replaced with a similar relay that hat "toyota"....go figure!

Good luck

Probably a faulty starter motor, try putting the positive jumper directly on the large terminal on the starter motor and hot wireing from the smaller starter terminal to the positive side of your battery. This completely bypasses the rest of the ignition system and , if the starter still dosn't work , the problem is definitely the starter.
Don't forget to disconnect the battery before removing the starter.
Once the starter is out, check the contacts in the solenoid, this is a common problem or the brushes in the actual motor.

Merc e320 1997 model,W210 engine wont start. Please help


If you hear a click while turning the key this would indicate low charge in battery any reading under 12 on a tester would have trouble starting other than that loose battery leads have you tried jumping if it starts with a jump this would indicate battery.

What is wrong when you turn the key to start and the radio and all the instruments turn on but the starter doesn't click and the engine doesn't turn on even after trying to jump start it


Dead battery

Dangerous practice to try & jump a dead battery

The battery cables could be loose at either end or corroded internally

Most likely the battery is worn out, if original to car
since it was new, or the starter solenoid is worn

You do not want to jump any vehicle made after the
year 2000 or your asking for possible problems with
todays electronics.

You need a good battery that has been tested & fully
charged, then only jump with a jump pack,not another car

I have 2001 mercury courage replace alternator 2wks ago ran great. Now today will not start. Tried to start and it would click when I turned key now won't do anything doesn't have any power....


Could quite possibly be you have a bad starter. I would have it tested. Could also be a bad battery. If, when jumping it, you used too high of a voltage, could have shorted out a wire somewhere

No power to ignition or dash or anything but do have interior lights. no clicking and no reactions when key turned. same when i try to jump start it.


First check your fuse box and make sure you don't have blown fuses. If that doesn't tell you anything, you need to check if you are getting 12V to your PCM.

1991 Lexus 400 - engine doesn't start - battery seems charged - 12.3 volts - makes clicking sound only - doesn't turn over at all.


Is it one click or multiple clicks. If it's multiple clicks, it sounds like a dead battery. Voltage isn't always an indicator of a good battery, you need to have enough cranking amps to be able to start an engine also. If you have dash lights and it only clicks once, you could have a bad starter. An easy way to check this is to try and jump start the vehicle. If it starts up with a jump start, you need a new battery. If it still doesn't start up and it just clicks, you probably need a new starter.

Good Luck!

My 2004 Pontiac Grand Am ignition switch all of a sudden with the key will not turn on or turn at all for that matter this has not happened before Why ?


It sounds like your telling us the key won't turn in the ignition anymore for some reason. If that is the case the problem is one or more of the tumblers in the ignition have fallen, if this is the case you will have to replace the ignition itself or at least the ignition core. If you mean the key turn but the vehicle doesn't start I would start by disabling the alarm system you installed to eliminate the starter kill switch as the source of the problem. Also, if this is the case try jumping the vehicle. If it turns over and starts with a jump your problem is the battery having a dead cell in it. It can have all the world but if you have a dead cell it doesn't have the amperage to turn the starter over.

Car just stopped running when i was driving,without warning and now won't start


If it's not turning over at all, nothing happens when the key is turned, no click, try having it jumped. If it starts and dies, then pull the altenator out, bring it to autozone or the like, where they'll test it for free. If it fails, and your battery is more than couple years old, go ahead and replace that, too. If it does nothing when jumped and the altenator is ok, put a socket on the crankshaft with a breaker bar and try to turn the engine, if it doesn;t turn, the engine seized. Otherwise, more testing is needed that would be too much to describe here.

Full power won't jump nothing happens when I turn the key


Sounds like the starter has failed. Have someone turn the ignition while you tap on the starter with a hammer. If it starts, that confirms starter. If it still doesn;t start, remove the stater and have it bench tested at a parts store.
