Question about Toyota Corolla

2 Answers

Put in a new battery, starter clicks, but engine won't turn over. Cleaned all contacts and all connections are tight. Before buying new battery, tried jumping with the old one, almost got it started but then went back to just clicking. Thought it was the battery but apparently not. Oh yeah 93 corolla 1.8L

If the starter makes a click that means that you have current to the starter relay (selenoid) you can replace the starter relay but most of the time are the copper contacts inside that close the circuit to energize the starter foward to start spinning. The contacts are burn bu used

89 Ford F-350 won't start


Check all cable connections for corrosion and clean everything you have connections from the battery to the starter relay the actual cables to the starter and also check the starters ground strap at the nose of it if it's frayed or broken you found it this is a contact problem and clean and tighten everything do not use wire brushes 4/0 that's 0000 steel wool =liquid wrench=pb blaster will all help the wire brush rips apart the terminals and battery post causing loose connections they must be tight no air gap good luck stephen

Disconnected battery and now won't start


Won't start as in no rotation of the starter motor and no clicking sound? Or starter turns slowly with the engine? Or the starter and engines turns normally but will not start? Or starter turns normally but engine will not turn?

My 1993 Dodge Caravan won't start. There's a clicking sound under the hood when I turn the key. I was told to reset the map sensor. Although, I don't know how. I put in a new starter yeste


Do not go back to any " mechanic" who told you to re-set the map sensor. Those are some baaad mechanics, giving you a schuck job. That is outrageous . If the clicking is coming from the relay and fuse center by the battery, you probably need a new $10 starter relay. If the clicking is coming from the starter solenoid on the new starter you put on, then it's not a bad part, but likely a loose connection at the battery, or at the starter where the big cable wire attaches. Are your battery cable connections corrosion-free and clean and tight? Did you happen to remove a ground wire and forgot to re-attach it? Check your battery ground, the negative cable where it attaches to the frame of the car, or to the engine. That should be clean and tight also. If the starter solenoid is clicking, it means that the starter is getting a signal from your ignition switch to turn the starter motor on, but the starter motor is not getting full battery power from the battery to start turning and thus cranking the engine. The starter motor gets its full battery power from the positive positive cable. One end is on the battery, and the other end is on the starter. If your battery is still charged up enough to start the car, all connections are tight, you have a new starter, and the solenoid just clicks, it may be a bad battery cable.
I will stop here, and wait for your response . Hope you find it, just keep looking. There is no such thing as re-set the map sensor, period.

My starter on my 2000 Suziki quad makes a clicking sound and won't turn the engine over.


Either the starter will have to come out for testing, rebuilding, or replacing, or the battery is not strong enough to power the starter-maybe it's low on charge. Are all your battery and starter connections clean and tight? Verify the condition of your battery before you condemn the starter.

Sounds like you are not getting enough current from the battery to the starter. If your battery is fully charged, make sure the the battery cables are tight and corrosion free (baking soda & vinegar will clean the terminals, rinsed with clear water afterwards) and make surw connections on the starter are tight. There is also a starter relay in the circuit that could be bad. You could use booster cables to connect battery direct to the starter to see if it turns the engine over, but make sure polarity is correct. Put one end of the booster cable on the the plus side of the battery, then take the other end and touch the plus (+) side of the starter. If engine turns over (it will not start) then problem is either cables, connections, or starter relay. If it doesn't turn over, I suspect the battery itself or the starter.

have someone turn key and you grab the battery cables and twist/ wiggle them and also pull upward on positive cable going to starter to see if it makes a better contact to start truck. I dont know who or how the starter got tested but normally if the starter just clicks it is either not enough power going to starter motor, or the starter selonoid is bad, or the starter motor is bad. so double check all cables and cable ends,and all cable contacting points. check battery for tight posts and connections.

Just changed the stater, however, it will only click when i turn the key, any suggestions


In order to have the starter work, the solenoid has to close the positive connection to the starter. The solenoid now is corroded inside, when it click to engage the contact inside, but the contact is not good to conduct the current to the starter. Therefore your starter is not turning. Need to replace the solenoid. it is on top of your starter. Here is the image. 5cc5b1b.jpg

I've had the same problem many times.First check the starter post.It has a nut at the bottom,the battery cable sandwiched(with some other wire connectors) in and a nut holding the cables on.The bottom nut (closest to the starter) loosens up and breaks contact with the voltage from the battery.Take off the top nut and cables and make sure the bottom nut is tight.(not muscleman tight,wuss tight).If this checks out OK and the problem still occurs replace the starter.
