What can be the problem when I turn the key to start my yukon and the engine does not turn over but one click sound occurs at the starter location and then nothing?

Make sure your engine is not seized up. If the engine cannot rotate, neither will the starter. Next step is to determine that the car can control the starter. Easiest way to do this is to jump the battery and solenoid wires at the starter, in the car, while it is in park or neutral, with the ignition on. If the starter can be made to manually start the vehicle, the problem is in the control circuit. If not, either the new starter is no good or you still have power cabling or battery issues.

My truck wont start after replacing engine

Did you connect the engine ground strap to the frame. Also check that the engine turns over by hand. Use a socket on the crankshaft nut to turn engine over. I f it turns the check all wires going to stster for power. You should have power at the S terminal only when the key is in start position. If you have a voltmeter check voltage at starter battery terminal. It should read 12.6 volts or higher. If your not getting 12 volts then it is possible you have too much resistence in the positive battery cable and it needs replacing.

I go to turn the van on and all i get is a click, all lights come on and battery tested out fine. Tried jumping it didnt work, mechanic took a hammer to the starter still didnt work. Any advice will help...

If the battery cables and battery check out fine then test for 12 volts at the signal wire at the starter when the ingnition key is turned to start. If 12 volts is present then the starter is bad or the ground strap from the engine to chassis is not getting a good connection. You can test for the the ground by placing a jumper cable to the negative battery post and the engine.

No 12 volts when cranking? Then check relay or ignition switch.

You can apply 12 volts to the signal wire at the starter to verify it will turn.

Do the interior lights dim when the key is turned to start?

I try to start it and it just make a click noise and wont start

Possible bad Starter motor. Possible dead battery. Possible bad Alternator resulting in a dead battery.
First try have someone hold the key in Full Start position, hear the click and tap on starter motor with a hammer. If it kicks in and starts up (be ready for that) then the starter is going bad and should be replaced. (Might get 3 -4 more starts like that)
If there is no change, then you should be able to jump start it with cables from another battery/car.
Then you need to figure out if the battery is expired or if the Alternator is not charging enough.
You can do this with a multimeter on the battery. With engine running you should read about 14.5 volts or more, up to around 15 volts plus.. If not, if voltage is around 12 volts or lower, when running, then you will need to replace the Alternator.

If you are getting good voltage from the alternator, then you can assume you need to replace the battery. The other alternative is a short circuit draining the battery or you left a light on somwhere and drained it. Run the car for 30 to 40 mins minimum to recharge battery (idle is good). Or just use a battery charger. 10 amps for 3- 4 hours, or 2 amps overnight..
Hope this is helpful.

Van wont start. replaced starter 3 times. sounds like solenoid when you turn it over. solenoid on top of starter. any ideas.

I would verify that you are getting correct voltage to starter. Use a digital multimer set to DC volts 20 setting. Measure battery voltage at battery. Then measure voltage from large wire (usually red) on starter to ground. (engine block or bolt attaching starter to engine) if there is more than a small voltage difference, check for corrosion at battery terminals and cables. If not corroded and making good contact, replace positive battery cable to starter. If voltage good at starter, (at least 11.5 Vdc), you could have a bad engine ground. Follow negative cable (black one) from battery to where it bolts onto engine. Remove bolt from engine and clean cable and engine mating surface well. (wire brush will do well) Then re-attatch cable. Then set your multimeter to OHMs 200 setting. Test the cable itself metal ends on cable) from battery to block. Should get a reding of zero ohms resistance. If substantial resistance, replace negative cable. Not the complete diagnostic, but will give you a good start at finding a problem. Mike

L already put new battery ,fuse and starter to my chevy 1995 silverado but how come it wont start if I turn on the ignition.

you might have a bad connection or bad wires bad ground the first thing you have to do is see if you are getting 12 volts to the thick red wire on the starter then when someone is turning the key the small red or purple wire should get 12 volt

Car won't crank & makes a clicking noise when ignition is turned.

test battery voltage , should be 12 volts, also check battery amp draw when you attempt to start engine, you should have 12 volts at the starter solenoid , you could have a faulty starter motor, battery cables and or terminals... even with a good battery check for vltage drop from battery positive post to battery positve at solenoid ... large drop equals bad cable, replace ... just points to check....
