You have very bad corrosion in the cable that will block full voltage through the entire battery cable
replace the cable is the only hope for your dilemma

A friend grounded the power wire to my ignition on my 96 yzf600r and now it wont start I replaced the fuse and the lights come on but wont turn over please help

Check every switch,solinoid, and wires from the ignition connector to the starter, with a volt meter, follow the 12 volts from the start button to the starter to the battery.
On a wild guess, the starter solinoid doesn't have 12 volts coming out of it when it is engauged.

Best of luck!

Car wont start just one click and a hum when key is turned

Hello! do you have a multimeter and a little experience using it? if not just let me know...If you do set it to read 12 volts...clip the (-) probe to the (-) battery terminal and the (+) probe to the Brown wire that connects to the starter motor...Have someone turn the key to start...+12 volts must be on that Brown wire...If not the starter relay (even though it clicks) is defective...Check for 12 volts on the large Red lead connected to the starter...If voltage is correct the starter is defective; replace starter...See diagram below for location of starter...Guru...saailer

My car would not start thought it was the battery, replaced battery for new, car will not turn no sound at all.

Now you must check the starter. The large cable going to the starter supplies 12+ volts. The small wire supplies 12 volts when the key is turned to the start position. Using a volt meter or 12V test light check for voltage at the small wire when the key is turned to start. If 12 volts are now present and your engine grounds are good then the starter is bad. You can try to bamg on the starter with a broom stick while someone turns the key to start. sometimes this will get the starter moving again. but not for long. starter replacement will be required.

If 12 volts is not present at the small wire when turning the key then you may suspect a blown fuse, fusible link, bad starter relay, neutral or clutch safety switch, or faulty ignition switch.

My husband replaced the turn signals & headlight & now car wont start

Hello! I sent a test procedure to you Wednesday evening but It appears you did not receive it ..This is the path for Battery and Ground to pull the crank relay which applies +12 volts to the starter solenoid..Either there is a fault in this path or the starter itself was damaged in the collision...Leaving the ignition switch when in start ...+12 volts on the Yellow wire goes to the Crank fuse (10A)...Other side of fuse is Purple wire to PCM C-2 Pin # 23...+ 12 volts at this point...PCM sends a ground on C-2 pin #76...Yellow/Black wire to crank relay....+ 12 volts from the PCM ABS fuse (10A)...via Park/Neutral switch to crank relay...Relay pulls and applies +12 volts on the Purple wire that goes to the starter...That +12 volts, if there,indicates a starter damaged in the collision...If not there chase it back until you lose it...Would you be so kind as to not rate my solution until the test procedure is accomplished...Send a comment..saailer

My car wont start but my battery is good it just clicks

if your battery has 12 volts and you can hear click noise , try to locate the click noise. If that is coming from the starter location then the starter mtr is not working.a voltage check at the starter mtr with the key in the start position will verify the problem. if 12 volts is not present at the starter mtr thethe start switch or wires could be the problem

My car will power up but wont crank i believe its the starter

check if you're getting a 12 volt signal to the small wire going to your starter when you try to start it. And also 12 volt all the time to the big wire. if the small wire doesn't have 12, then I'd suspect the ignition switch, if both get 12, then it,s definitely the starter.

Wont start,no sounds no power,completely dead

You will need a volt meter to figure this one out. Battery voltage? Should be above 12 volts, and while you are trying to "crank" the engine over, if it's still over 12, you need to see if that power is getting to the starter motor. If it goes below 9 or 10 volts, you either have a bad battery, or the starter motor is shorted, or bad.
To test the starter, you should have a large wire going to the starter that has 12 volts all of the time from the battery. A smaller wire will have 12 volts only when the key is turned to "start". If you have these and a good ground, the starter motor is bad.

Won't start.

That's possible, but if you have power at the starter solenoid to close the contacts then check to see if the 12 volts are going through it(probe the large wire on both sides of the solenoid for 12 volts) and on to the starter, if this is the case, check for 12 volts at the starter lug where the large power wire hooks to the starter, if you are getting at least 12 volts at the starter lug, I would say you have a failed starter motor. Good luck !

I have a 95 eclipse n/a that wont start. it was running perfect, amazing actually, and then all the sudden wouldnt start. all lights and radio come on in the car(battery is fine, tried jumping it just in...

If the starter isn't turning it is not an o2 sensor. You need to make sure you are getting power to the starter, use a test light and a voltmeter check and make sure you are getting 12 volts to the starter if you are getting 12 volts from the battery to the starter check and make sure you are getting 12 volts from the ignition switch which will be the smaller wire. If you are getting 12 volts through that wire then the starter is bad. If you are not getting 12 volts or any volts you need to make sure the fuse and relay for the starter are good then check and make sure you have power coming out of the ignition switch going to the starter you will need an electrical schematic for the car to trace the wires to find the correct one.
