Sounds like the battery was dying and is now completely. Have you attempted to jump start the vehicle? Batteries usually last about 4-5 years. So if it's the original battery you got full use out of it atleast.

Maybe the battery is going bad.

Or, connections are bad.

Or the alternator isn't charging the battery enough.

Bike not starting


Do a plug elimination test, take the lead off one plug at a time and turn over the engine. If one particular plug being disconnected makes no difference then that plug is probably not firing. In this case try replacing the plugs.

It sounds like it has jumped time. What year is the car and how many miles. Timing chains can go bad as early as 70,000 miles

2006 Kia Rio will not turn over


the timing belt will not have anything to do with the motor turning over trying to start. First make sure u do have a very strong battery. Could be a bad connection or a broken wire to starter also.

Just bought a 98 intrigue and drove it this morning, it has been starting fine and shut it off and now wont start, just a clicking sound but don't think its the battery. any ideas on what to check


Hi to me if the clicking noise is coming from the engine then this points towards the startor motor packing up one thing you can try to get it started is give the starter motor a few hard hits with a hammer doing this sometimes shock the selenoid into working again but dont rely on this lasting long term as it could leave you stuck

the best option is to get the starter replaced as soon as you can

to locate the starter follow the live red lead from the battery this goes to the selenoid on the starter and the big round thing next to the small round part is the startor motor give the bigger part a few taps with a hammer doing this should get it started

let me know if you have any problems

I have a 2006 Sebring 2.7 L V6 with 75500 miles. For the last few weeks, a few things have been going on. First, AT TIMES, when I start the car, it will have a rough start in the morning and shake a bit....


This is a direct fire ignition system, coils over the plugs. You have never had any code but P0300 Random miss show up? Also do you routinely run the gas tank lower than 1/8 tank, if so that can be the cause.

1996 blazer just got brand new battery, but has moments where it wont start, it will click and all the lights come on, but it wont even attempt to turn over and then a few more turns of the ignition, and...


The "clicking" is probably from the starter selinoid. If it's malfunctioning you'll get that clicking and nothing else. Follow cable back from starter to locate selinoid.

My 99 nissan hesitated a few times to start a few


Hello there, First you need to make sure you have a good battery, todays cars are very picky on having the proper voltage to make the systems work properly. Just a tip for you, You can take your battery out and take it to an Autozone or advanced auto parts store.They will charge your battery as well as test it for you to make sure it is working good for you.

Before you spend a lot of money on parts not needed I would make sure the battery is good and then try and see if you are not getting fuel from the fuel pump, Most cars you will hear a slight humming noise coming from the gas tank when you first turn the key on, this will last about 5 seconds, try and listen for this if you here it then your fuel pump is working.

Good Luck, I hope this helps you some.

Starter


you can replace the cylinoid,but I prefer to change the whole thing specially that it seems like starter drag when you buy the new starter the cylinoid will be built on the new starter,if you change the cylinoid itself,and you still need a starter youll have to buy the starter and cylinoid as one unit,and they wont take the cylinoid back that you broke,but either way I would pull the starter and bring it down to an autozone and have it checked for free,if this helps please give me a fix ya
