You starter solenoid is bad, change it out, better yet change the whole starter.

Check all connections and cables for corrosion. Make sure there is a good engine to chassis ground. You are loosing connection somewhere.

BATTERY SHOWS 12.84 VOLTS BUT WONT START UNLESS JUMPED METER SHOWS 14.2VOLT WITH ENGINE RUNNING


Hi,
First thing to do is clean both battery connections.Fords are really bad for the battery connections corroding. When this happens you can get a good volt reading but not be getting enough amps. Next is to disconnect clean and reattach the electrical connections at the starter. Also check along the wires going from the battery to the starter to make sure the insulation has not been damaged. It is unlikely but possible that a critter or road debris damaged the insulation and caused one of the wires to corrode. The starter is the heaviest draw on the battery so physical damage to the electrical system will show up here first. If everything else checks out you will want to have the starter checked. If you are capable of removing it most major auto parts stores can bench test them.
Hope this is helpful to you. Good Luck!

Car won't start without a jump but battery okay


wont crank or wont start.??
no car starts , if it cant crank. (unless push starter (M/T magic)
that is not a trans sensor its the PRN switch.
ill answer for, wont CRANK !
it wont crank even with a good battery (charged) or jump started.
1: bad start
2: bad wires to same.
so hot wire the starter small wire, the key start line is tiny.
cranks. , starter good, no crank starter bad or cables bad.
if it cranks hot wired, then the key line is dead.
easy, huh?

trace the wires coming off the pos(+) batt terminal should be red most of the time depending on vehicle their located on side of motor right before bellhousing on transmission also check an make sure when you turn the key your wires are not getting hot sometimes you can take a screwdriver to the starter bolts an start the engine not sure be much help but worth a shot

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

My car has radio, lights, and power but wont start?


oh boy that's a big problem wiring can be such a pain ,OK do you have dash lights ,if so,their is ignition wire that goes from the base of the fuse box to the starter if you could find it ,trace it all the way to the starter make sure that is no chewed spots on the wire .If there is no lights check bye the battery terminal and trace the big red wire to the fuse box and make sure that your main fuse is not blown, also make sure that the wire is not cut either ,well let me know ,

CAR NEEDS TO BE JUMP STARTED EVERYDAY


You should have a heavy red wire going to the back of the alternator, it should have 12 volts, it will excite the alternator, thus allowing it to charge your battery. If the doesn't have 12 volt, trace the wire, I believe that it will end at the starter. If you have 12 volts at this wire, most likely you have a fusable link thats shorted out at the starter. Look for a wire at the starter that appears burnt, or wiggle the wires one at a time, you'll find on that feels like a plain rubberband, with no resistance while wiggling.
