You should go for a full diagnosis. you should know that the light can be turned on by anything even if the battery terminal head is dirty

99 mustang won't start it only do 1 click. If it


Battery good, cables good, all connections clean and tight, no corrosion on battery terminals?
Try to determine if click is from solenoid on the starter or starter relay. Turn the headlights on and watch them while someone turns the key to start. If they get dim, probably the starter-have it tested-even new ones are sometimes bad. If lights don't dim, you will need to check the start circuit. Check for power on the small wire to starter solenoid when key is held in start. If no power there, work back towards the ignition switch. Check the neutral safety switch-should have power in and power out when key held in crank. The ignition switch will have a start wire out of the switch going to the neutral safety switch. It should have power with key in start, the only time the start wire will have power.
Post back with what you find-good luck.

Car won't crank


No parts are ever replaced to resolve any vehicle issues

You have to proper test any vehicle systems that apear
to have a problem

Once all the answers are present, only then do parts get
installed if necessary

Things such as fuses & relays only fail here on these web site
blogs, for the most parts,way too much silly talk about nothing

Need to have the car at a repair shop that actually can diagnose
something

From what I see on this site from people asking questions,
that appears to be an issue also,finding a half decent shop
these days

1989 nissan maxima, cranks, no start


Check sparks, fuel pressure, injectors (should have ac volts while cranking), and if all that is good, check valve timing.

My 2003 Rodeo is having problems starting. Sometimes it turns on with the first try, other times on the second. But lately I have to try it 6-20 times before it starts. It varies. The noise it makes if...


need to load test battery, this vehicle will not start or power up engine ECU if battery voltage is dropping to 10 volts or below while cranking. so if starter is clicking some times due to low voltage engine will not fire up(start) but cranks over seemingly fine. also when not starting does check engine light flash at all?
check all earths after checking battery with load tester if battery is ok then there was problems with immobiliser modules causing this fault and there is a revised module for this as well as checking wiring for key reader to immobiliser, also are there any aftermarket electronics fitted to vehicle? which could be causing problem due to location and wiring into vehicle.

Hi:) That sound like the solenoid is the problem it is located on the starter and if the solenoid is not working right it will do all the things you are explaining.And yes heat has alot to do with it and being ware out.If it is the original it is time to replace the starter anyways it's 16 years old.

Car will not start. Inside lights are bright one time then they flicker the next when trying to start. Usually all the maintenace lights come on as you are starting. Sometimes only the check engine light...


It sounds as a weak battery. Try to horn with the head light on to see if it can sound.
1- Have the battery recharged.
2- Clean off the cable terminal really well to prevent corrosion built up causing high resistance. If there is high resistance at terminals, there is not enough current flowing through the starter hence there is no starting.
3- If battery is good after recharged as well as horn could sound, but still not started, then the starter solenoid needs to be checked out. Good luck.

Won't start lights dim and then brighten


Did you try to boost battery? Sounds like low charge. Check battery terminals for tight and clean as well as groung connection at body and power connection at starter for clean. If battery OK test for power on starter wires. Large wire will have contant battery power small wire will have battery power when key is in crank position. If power ok on both it will probably need a starter. Hope this helps...Good Luck.
