If the battery is charged up and reading 13.5 volts, it should crank.If it reads below 12.5, it won't. The terminals are needing a good cleaning, all the contacts on the battery have to be clean, wire brush. The electrolyte in the battery should be checked. If still no crank, check the big wire to the starter, It has too be clean too. If all else fails, take the starter to the parts store and get it checked. Could be at fault. Hope this helps.

My 1962 Buick electra 225 wont start. When I turn the key the accesories come on but the engine wont start. it doesnt even try to start.


Sounds like the relay in the starting motor circuit has failed, or a starting motor/solenoid problem - have them checked. This can also be caused by a problem in the ignition switch.

How to reset baterry saver on 2006 cadillac cts?


Disconnect the battery and clean both terminals. Wait about 10 minutes before re-connecting battery terminals. That will reset your car's computer. Should start if there is enough juice in the battery. If you hear a clicking sound when you turn on the engine it means your battery is too low to turn the engine and probably means it's time for a new battery. Get someone to give you a boost and it should start fine. Your battery is probably original equipment and more than 8 years old. Thats about maximum life expectancy for a battery.

1996 nissan maxima wont start, windows wont roll and dashboard caution lights and icons not lighting up when i turn the key. the turn signals also arent working but they do with the hazard lights on. car...


I think your ignition switch has quit working, or it has stopped getting power. If you pull the connector apart to the ignition switch and check if there is one wire on the harness side of the connector that has power, it sure looks like a bad ignition switch. One fat wire, about 12 gauge size, going into the switch should be hot at all times. If you have it, pretty obvious that power is not going out of the switch. key on should send power out of the switch to the fuses for the windows and other accessories, and also send power to the dash for the warning lights and gauges.
Power to the switch will be either from one of your fusible links near the battery or from a maxi fuse in the fuse/relay block under the hood. The funny action of the key kind of points to the ignition switch, though. Still, check for power into the switch first.

I have a 2002 sunfire... and i have trouble turning it on. Once it startes it is stuck there because it will not turn at all. Once it is in this position the wipes wont work, the windows wont roll down,...


sounds like you need a new ignition, reason nothing works cause once it doese turn over n starts the car the tumbler is stick in the starting position jus not far enough to keep the starter engaged but far enough the it still trying to go trough the start process which cuts the power to everything else till the ignition returns to the on postion

did you try jus turning the ignition far enough to when the starter engages jus let go of it so the car doesnt start and see if everything else still doesnt work if it dont i belive its the igniton

also with out starting it or engaging the starter as in just turning the key on to get power does anything work?

2005 Mazda 3 won't start; when I turn the ignition the dashboard lights flicker and a loud clicking sound occurs


the battery is low on power. the lights will still light for a bit longer but your engine needs more cranking amps to turn it over. The clicking sound is your starter without enough power. Have someone help you jump the car. or if you have a manual transmission, get the car moving 5mph+ somehow (push or hill) and pop the clutch out with the keys in the ignition in the "on" position. your car will start right up. if your car regularly needs jumped you probably have a bad battery. if your car looses power while driving you have a bad alternator.

MY 97 DODGE STRATUS WONT START, ITSGOT POWER AND WEN I TRY TO START IT I ONLY GET A CLICK NOISE, NOT THEDEAD BATTERY CLICKING NOISE JUST ONE CLICK AND THATS IT. I HAD STARTED IT TWENTY MINUTES PRIOR TO...


i believe if you remove the steering wheel upper and lower covers, there will be a button to push to allow the removal of the key..as for the no start, the battery light is on because of the alternator. Its faulty. the clicking sound could very well be the starter not having enough power reaching to turn it over again unless you put a power pack on it...try a brand new battery, test the alternator and removed the key..it is possible the the key not shutting off the way, is drawing power from the battery not allowing to start that way, causing what they call a "parasitic drain". charge battery, remove key. try that

Failure to crank


two things--the baterry cable is corroded and not allowing current to flow, the starter is bad, third item take the battery off and take to a local parts store o"reilly's, napa, advance or even wally world and have a load test done (a battery can show voltage but not have any power(amperage) if the battery test good and there is good connections you can pull the starter off and take it to most parts stores and test it also no clue on the other noise but may be related to a starter relay trying to work

Engine wont turn over with key, not getting enough gas to run.


Have the key and ignition checked! I am assuming that the key has a security chip on it, Right? If so, re-program key at dealership, and if that alone doesn't work, have them check both the key and column.
