You will have to test the voltage in the battery while cranking the engine. If it drops much below 12 volts ether the battery is bad or the starter is bad and drawing too many amps. A week battery will cause the solenoid to stutter and not engage. Or the solenoid itself may be bad.

My 95 buick lasabre just clik and don't crank we replace battery and started


If it just clicks make sure the engine isn't locked up by turning it by hand. If it turns freely it is possible that you have a defective starter motor provided all your connections to the starter and battery are clean and making good contact.

My 95 neon won't start. it makes a single ticking noise when i try to start it but only when it's in neutral.


the tick is the starter relay applying power to the starter. 3 possibilities
1 - your battery is so dead it cant turn the starter once it engages the engine
2 - your battery terminals are so corroded they can't pass enough current to start your car
3 - the starter windings are shorted out and need replacing

>>> if the car can be jump started it's not #3, if you can put a volt meter on the batter and it reads between 12-14v then it's most likely not #1

My 1996 dodge neon wont start. I was told it was the starter because it would start after we banged on it with a hammer. When I parked the car it wouldn't start unless i push start it or banged on the...


The starter relay or starter solenoid would be my guess, but I am wondering what the gears on the old starter looked like. If they were in really bad shape (deformation or chunks missing) you may need to replace the flywheel.

Won't start, cleaned battery terminals, batt


Most likely it's either your selenoid or your starter. But before you buy one, have someone turn the key tro crank position while you tap the selenoid with the hammer. If it starts, you have a bad starter.

My pick-up truck wont start it had a bad starter so i replaced the starter, then the battery died....but in the same day...i decided to just use other truck and give it a jump start, but my truck was only...


Based on your description, the starter selenoid is not getting enough juice (current) to pull up solidly. So, causes are:
1. Low battery voltage
2. bad connection of battery+ at the battery or at the selenoid terminal.
3. bad ground connection between the starter selenoid and the truck chassis.

If you want to bypass the selenoid, you can place a jumper cable on the "FAR" side of the selenoid (the side that feeds the starter). Then momentarily touch the other end of the jumper to the battery + terminal.

If the starter cranks, then you have confirmed the selenoid as problematic. Remove it and either replace it or disassemble and clean it.

Check the starter selenoid, check for corrosion on batt, terminals and inside the cables, tap the starter with a metalic object and try to start the car, if it starts change the starter.

Seems like a short when I hook up neg. batt. cable.


Starter power wire could be grounding out causing it to lock the starter in even if the engine is running, as well as making the cable arc at the battery. I would first trace the wire from the battery to the starter and make sure it isn't grounding somewhere. If it isn't it could be the starter going bad internally. My guess would be the wiring, especially where it bolts to the starter.
