SOURCE: replaced starter on 94 dodge ram 1500 5.9 liter 2

your battery may check out fine, being 5.9 liter take a big amperage to turn that starter over 12volt does not mean a thing, amperage is what count. Every auto part store they sell many types of battery and they all 12V but different amperage. Your battery may check out 12V but amperage may have gotten weak. Check all your negative ground that you have good contact to body chassis. You can also try to get a jump from other truck (friends) that has a higher or same amperage as yours to see if it turn over. using jumper cables connect positive cable straight to your positive post and the negative directly to your motor metal ground and see that will also assist the amperage to turn over that starter. This way we can truly eliminate the battery if it does not start. If that don't work than its you ground connections or positive contact. check both positive and negative cables from your battery making sure the wires is good. Inspect the ground wire to your starter making sure it has good contact. Oil and rust will make give a bad contact. If your hear the serenoid clicking when the key is turn over and you can hear the starter making a strong clicking noise to the flywheel but not able to turn your fly wheel, and we try to jump with addition battery increasing the amperage along with good starter, all the gound wires check out, chances are your motor may be lock up. The only way to check if your motor/flywheel is lock up, take all the spark plugs out that way it will reduce your compression, take a big close end box wrench and put it on the main crank pulley and try to turn the main crank pulley over by hand. Go from there and re-post and let us know, one of us will try to continue to walk you through it.

My 2006 BMW won't turn over sounds like starter don't have enough juice


Could be a bad battery, bad starter (dragging), solenoid could have bad contacts so not enough current going through them, bad/loose battery cables.

How do I get it running again?


It's possible the "new starter" has a bad solenoid so the actual starter motor never gets enough "juice" to turn. I have come across this problem several times. You may also have a serious battery drain, so there was enough "juice" to make the solenoid to Tik but not enought to turn the starter motor itself. I'd check the battery again, or try a different battery. The battery connections may have enough corrosion to prevent proper recharge. The charging system may not be performing properly.

Having issues keeping the battery charged. Replaced Battery a few months ago and car was running great. Then a few weeks ago I started to notice that if I let the car sit for more than 3 or 4 days I...


I think it's doubtful that your starter is draining the battery. Once your starter is engaged upon start up, it is done with its job, and it is not needed until the next start up. It does sound like your starter is going bad. If all of the electrical parts seem to come on when you trying to start it, it should have plenty enough juice to start it. One possible cheap solution is it could be the starter relay. The relay takes power from your battery and routes it through to your starter. If this isn't working, your starter isn't even getting any juice. I hope this is the problem. I have seen many starters replaced that should not have been because fo a bad starter relay. You would have to Google that info on a Monte Carlo. I could not tell you where it is on any Chevy.

1986 Ford Ranger starter problems


it could be the battery and if not enough power is going to starter it will not ingage fully engage and cause slight wear on teeth...Now over years teeth will wear on flywheel but should be ok if none are missing....the freely turning on flywheel is incorrect also....it is hard to turn either way...would have battery checked first....hope this helps....

1993 honda accord always ran great went to store turned off car woulden start had the starter and soilnold check they were good but yet when try to start car all you hear under dash is a click but starter...


a bad starter relay would do it but i dont know where the starter relay is located on your car, bad battery cable and starter connections would do it a bad ground connection would also do it, and sometimes but not very often a bad or worn ignition switch can do it also.

Car wont start but lights work and starter lights flash on and off


You likely have a dead battery of a bad starter. Does it click when you turn the key?
BATTERY: There may be enough juice to runs some lights but not enough to actuate the solenoid.
SOLENOID: This is a switch that controls the juice to the starter on your engine. It makes a click when it is first engaged. If it is not working correctly, your starter cannot get juice and won't engage.
STARTER: If the starter is too far gone to even make a revolution, then it is time to replace it.
Many auto parts stores will test batteries and starters for free, but the trick is getting there!
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

Went through not too deep water car stalled , replaced air filter and checked batterie car clicks and lights dim when you try to start.


Well if its clicking that means your starter isnt working. You can try replacing the starter. Its also possible that your starter isnt' getting enough juice, or your ground is bad. Go from there. Also if it went through enough water for it to go in air filter, it would be wise to change the oil as well to make sure no water is in your oil.
Thank you,

2004 A 8L won"t start


starter wont click because there's not enough "juice" to turn it over. this isnt because of the battery as you have just replaced it. it is due to a bad alternator recharging the battery as you drive. if it were only a fuse it would be the solenoid in the starter. but if it had started after you installed the battery then its not the solenoid. solution: buy a refurbished alternator and

Car wont start, starter is trying to turn over but can't do it


You may have a drain on the battery as well as trying to start the engine. You could try jumping a feed to the starter solenoid and see if it is more willing than usual. If it is - find the short. If not, it could be time for a new starter solenoid. They do get worn and covered in soot internally, and therefore make poor connection.
