Fuel pump is your problem, done replaced my girls once and fixing to do it again! Its crazy that GM being as they are would put 22gauge wires that run to the pump. Basicly the pump is starving for current and burns its self up.My 12volt experience would say it needs a relay and 12gauge wire setup using the factory wire as a trigger for the new relay which will draw power from a fused 12 gauge wire from the battery.along with a solid clean pump ground 12 guage.

2003 accord 4cylinder wont start doesnt turn the battery is good


check battery connections, if they are good check the power supply from the battery to starter motor (thick cable), if this is good have someone crank it while you check the signal wire to the starter motor(thin wire), if this is good replace the starter motor. u could tap the starter motor with a hammer if accessible while someone is cranking it, sometimes this will get the starter going again but will still need replacing

2001 chevy blazer wont start starter and all wires are good. what else could it be?


Take your battery to a battery shop and have the cold cranking amps (CCA) checked. Your battery can read on any multimeter but if the CCA is not there, you need a new battery. If the CCA is good then check your starter relay. Relays do stick occasionally. Swap it out with another relay with a similar amp rating if available. However, more than likely the CCAs are not there.

2000 expedition wont start changed sloenoid and battery still just click wont turn over


The poster should first make sure new battery is fully charged.Be sure battery cables are very clean and tight,same with connectors on solenoid. Have an assistant turn on headlamps(high beam) and attempt to start vehicle.Do lights remain the same or do they dim excessively? If lights dim noticeably check for shorted starter cable or defective starter.also check engine for excessive turning effort using turning tool on engine crank bolt or screwdriver in flywheel with starter removed.If lights do not dim check for open circuit in starter or cable.Sometimes a few sharp raps on the starter body will get it to work temporarily.Defective starters will often have a burnt smell. IF engine is excessively hard to turn,mechanical problem,such as leaking coolant into cylinders or defective injector may exist.Always use extreme caution when working under vehicle or near electrical components,batteries can explode or burn you badly and starter can engage causing serious bodily harm.Most auto parts stores can test starter with component removed.Also be sure correct replacement part is installed.This vehicle has several solenoids that will fit,but will not necessarily work.

THE PROBLEMS IN YOUR CAR COULD BE A BAD KEY TRY ANOTHER KEY YOUR CAR HAS THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE SYSTEM BEST TO HAVE CAR SCAN TO CHECK THE THEFT SECURITY MODULE AND THE TRANSMISSION NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH IF ITS BAD STARTER WONT WORK.ALSO CHECK THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE RELAY. BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY CABLES TURN OFF RADIO SO YOU WONT LOSE YOUR RADIO PLAYING CODE.

Wont start funny clicking sound when i turn the key ???


Hi!!

The clicking you are hearing, is the sound of a weak battery, Jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone for a Charging System check.

Good Luck!!

You have a bad starter if all your connections are good and your battery is measuring 12.7 volts and above with engine off.

1991 cadillac eldorado, car wont turn over and makes clicking noises. How do I know if its the starter or a specific part on the starter going out? When you turn the key the headlights and dash lights,...


1st make sure your connections at battery and starter are clean and tight. Next pull the battery out and have a parts store check it's condition. Even though the lights and radio work, it may be too weak to crank the engine over. If the battery checks out ok, then you are probably correct, it's the starter. Check in this order though, so you don't waste $ on parts you don't need. You don't want to pull the starter out to find it was a weak battery, or a bad connection (dirty or loose connection would prevent jump start from working.)

Wont start. when i turn the key all the lights work but it doesnt turn over. i can hear a clicking noise that comes from the relays


check your battery,and your starter
make sure the battery is up 12.4 volts if it is good then make sure you have power going to the starter,when you turn the key you should have power to the selnoid,if you have power there and the starter does not turn ,then the starter is bad.

Not starting replaced alt,starter,solenoid,and battery is good


It sounds like the wires from the battery to the starter solinoid are burned out, possibly even more of them to the main fuse box under the hood. You will have to start looking for the burned wires you can already smell and replace them. Starter and Battery area are a good place to start.
