The battery connections may be dirty, and battery itself might be bad.

Starter quit working on 1989 camaro 350 tunport put a new one on tsill wont do aneything when every thing ealse works

Grab a volt meter and check your battery out. Take a look at the condition of wiring and connections on the battery, alternator and starter. whatever the cause it seems likely the start is not the issue here, often time 'no start' conditions can be linked to a faulty charging system. There is an excellent article available regarding this topic on,

Car wont start

I dont know what kind of car you have, but just guessing, you should check the starter, starter solenoid, and some models have starter solenoid on the starter and on the inner fender of the car on the same side as the starter. On fords the wire on the side of the upper solenoid can come off and it wont start. Your local parts store can check the starter if you take it off and tell you if it is bad. Another thing to check if this is a chevy, is the wire on the starter solenoid, it may have broke off or pulled loose. I hope these suggestions help lead you to the problem.

My car wont' turn over, or even click. Batter is fine, starter is fine, altornator is fine

did this problem just occur or has the car been siting a while? check all connections from terminals to the starter to the coil to the distributor. see if you can turn the crank by putting a socket on the front of the crank case and try turning it by hand to rule out seizing of the motor.

Won't Start

try the altornator if it is out than the truck will not start you can take it out and most auto stores will test it for you before you buy a new one... if thats not it then it is more than likely the starter. turns over but will not catch.

Jeep wont start

The crank position sensor is on the bell housing of the transmission, very hard to see, on passenger side, below the valve cover, depending if it is an early 2000 or a later 2000 model.

Car won't start but battery is at full charge.

The clicking noise is probably the starter solenoid engaging the starter into the flywheel, but the starter motor is not receiving enough juice to turn the engine. I had a similar problem on my 96 Seville, thought the starter motor was the problem. Turned out to be corrosion on the positive cable (red) that you could not see under the rubber covering on the cable where the two wires on the positive cable are connected together at the battery. It will allow enough juice through to operate your car interior lights but not the high amount required to turn the starter motor.

Also, I would have your battery checked again to be certain it is good. If it is checked with a handheld device at the auto supply stores it may not give an accurate reading. It needs to be checked on a larger battery checker (Advance Auto Supply has them) that puts a load on it for about 15 minutes to be certain. A bad battery can cause your problem.
