Check your battery terminal connections. In most cases like yours they just need to be removed and cleaned.
Also make sure that the battery has a full 12volts and passes a load test. I can give you more info but likely this will get you going. If not ask, and I'll go further!!!

I have a 2000 Saturn that won't start. NEVER had a problem before. Turned it off and it hasn't started since. No turnover, no click, nothing.


Could be your key ignition switch. It helps to complete the circuit... but do you hear a clicking when you the the key. If you just hear a clicking noise, It is your starter if you hear nothing it could possiblely be the ignition switch. My riding lawn mower did the same thing. It turned out taking a can of air and cleaning out the key hole worked but it sounds like the ignition switch could be bad.

2003 AVALANCHE WON'T START CRANK BUT NOT START


if your fuel pumps not kicking on try looking under the hood in the fuse box for relays there black boxes 1in by 1in and have some one get in the car and turn the switch on and off while u hold each one if it clicks when the key is turned its good and if not swap it for one that does to rule out the fact that it might be a relay that requires the car to be running to come on

My 2003 ford expedition wont start all the lights and gauges turn on and a buzzing noise is coming from the fuse box


Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits ? Using a volt meter an wiring diagram to locate problems ?
Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year ,make , model and engine size . Under system click on engine , under subsystem click starting . Click the search button then the blue link . The buzzing sound you hear may be the starter relay , do you know what a relay is ? Behind the right side kick panel , this is where the front passengers right foot would be next to . Pull the plastic cover and behind is the central junction box. You can check for B+ voltage where the relay plugs in .

My 1991 Honda Civic Hatchback (automatic) was broken into last night. They got into the passenger door but nothing is taken or visible wrong, however my check engine light comes on and stays on when I try...


B******s! It could be that when they broke they tried to get your car going and they triggered the immobiliser and this may need to be reset. On the other hand with many automatics you can only remove the ignition key once the transmission is in 'park' and the steering lock has engaged. I wonder if they may damaged the parking interlock mechanism between the ignition point and the gear selector by messing with the locked steering wheel. Check that the steering lock unlocks OK and that the car is unable to start in any other gear position, try 'neutral'

The humming noise you hear is the fuel pump. It is probably your starter soleniod. If you hear an electric click under the dash near the steering column when you turn the key then the ignition switch is ok and your starter needs to be replaced. This happened to me last month.

Ignition problem. Clicking from under the hood car doesnt start


Check those wires in the trunk if one of them had power to something you could be grounding something out, dont keave exposed wires exposed to any metal thers a battery drain, or your starter motor just went out, if you can check the voltage coming from the starter it should be close to 10volts, 10 volts is required to start an engine. Also chek the relays in Power Distribution Center (PDC) located under hood in upper driver side corner. You need to try to diagnose where all the power is being disipating to.

Sounds like the starter is going out. Autozone will check those for free. It's just 2 bolts mounting the thing. It's under the passenger side rear of the engine. Undo battery, those 2 bolts and keep track of which wires go where. Run down to Autozone for a check or a new starter.
