The large cable on the starter comes directly from the battery.

1999 V70 will not start. Key is turned, car is in park, nothing happens. Battery voltage measured above 12 v. It appears that starter is bad or is not getting power. Any thoughts?


You can check starter by tapping on the side of it while someone else tries to start it.If it starts then that means the bendix is bad in the starter.

1988 mazda 323 hatchback, 212K miles. Tried to start this morning, no go. Cabin lights and radio came on, ignition switch turns, but no "click-click-click" sound. I think the starter isn't connecting...


I would have the system checked by a starting/charging analyzer. If the draw is 1 or 2 amps and the starter doesn't turn, the starter will have to be replaced to replace the bad solenoid. Also, if the draw is 75 to 125 amps and it doesn't turn, the starter is bad.

Normally, a starter should draw 75 to 125 amps and turn vigorously, assuming the battery connections are ok.

Power, but can not start


Try to quickly engage and disengage the starter motor by rotating the key all the way forward and back to ignition on only, and back again several times a second until the starter motor engages.

Sounds like the starter motor solenoid is sticking, maybe.

This happens on my 1997 Cadillac Deville sometimes on hot summer days or even in the winter.

I thought it was the security system, at first, but it is more likely a starter motor going bad.

Doesn't start- Thought starter was bad replaced and still nothing -won't turn over?Battery Good Checked all fuses and starter that was replaced is good! Turn ignition key and nothing? Selinoid not even...


The ignition switch attached to the column is probally bad, check the small wire to the sloenoid for battery when the key is turned to the start postion, if no battery, your not getting power from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid.

When I turn the key my starter just clicks once or twice. Battery has been checked and is good. Battery cables look bad. Your thoughts on why it wont start


the starter has likely failed. have someone "whack' it with a hammer as you turn the key to start it. if it starts you need to replace it as that only works a couple of times

Check the wires on starter solenoid to make sure they are in the right spot. Sounds like the ignition wire terminal on the solenoid is getting constant power. I hope this helps!
