If the starter or solenoid clicks but nothing else happens when you attempt to start the engine, there may not be enough amps to spin the starter. Or the starter may be bad. A poor battery cable, solenoid or ground connection, or high resistance in the solenoid itself may be the problem. A voltage check at the solenoid will reveal if battery voltage is passing through the ignition switch circuit. If the solenoid or relay is receiving battery voltage but is not closing or passing enough amps from the battery to spin the starter motor, the solenoid ground may be bad or the contacts in the solenoid may be worn, pitted or corroded. If the starter cranks when the solenoid is bypassed, a new solenoid is needed, not a starter. so first the voltage of the battery needs to be checked.the other things to be checked is starter and starter solenoid. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

I have a question about my 2003 gmc seirra 6.0l. When I turn the key to crank the engine it struggles for a second then starts. It has the same sound as if the battery is almost dead, but I just replaced...


Might be a fuel delivery issue. You can rent a fuel pressure test kit from most parts stores. see if the pump pressures are correct or if the regulator is bad.

Car wont start


You need to know if the fuel pump is working.TURN KEY ON,BUT DON,T CRANK engine, Listen for the pump to kick on(should hear it.)IF the check engine light is on,have it scanned. A bad crank or cam sensor could prevent starting.IT could be anything from bad plugs,wires,out of gas, or bad sensors.

Intermittent problem with starting engine cranks just fine but wont kick over


Turn your key forward just enough to see if you fuel pump turn on. You might have to have someone listen for it while you turn the key. Only turn to acc so the dash lights come on sound to me like your not getting any fuel to the motor.

Running fine. Died and wont start. Cranks fine


can you hear the fuel pump kick on when you turn the key on but without crancking the engine? Generally the fuel pump will prime for about two to three seconds when you first turn the key on. if you don't hear it that's probably the culprit. If you do hear it it may be a bad pump. also should check to see if you have spark. You can do this by removing a plug wire and using another spark plug. Ground the plug to somthing metal and have someone crank the engine (making sure you are not touching the plug or metal) You should see a spark while cranking. Good luck

1995 nissan pu wont start... everything turns on


check for power to the starter at the starter's connectors while you have someone turn the key. If there is power, change the starter. If not check your ignition switch, (manual trans)clutch pedal switch, and starter fuses/relays. Hopefully this helps

try to replace the starter or at least the cylanoid because the points in the cylanoid tend to rust over time and not work this should fix ur problem

My 1990 Thunderbird is getting no electrical power. The battery is new and fully charged. I have put in a new ignition switch and cylanoid switch. Still nothing. No headlights, no hazzard lights or dummy...


Replace the ignition switch. It's under the steering column covers half way down the column. There is a long electrical plug that has a bolt in the center of it that holds it on. You may need to buy tamper proof sockets to actually remove the switch. They look like torx bits but has a hole in the center of it.
