Having the starter electrical circuit tested when cold is the way to find the problem . Voltage drop testing ! load side an control side . Viewing wiring diagrams to see what all is involved in the starter circuit an using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter .

Will not start, battery is new, it just clicks and nothing. turn it off, try again and nothing, try again and it starts


Try cleaning and tightening well the battery connections along with the battery wires to the solenoid and starter motor.

Bad connections and low voltage of 12 volts can result in this anomaly.

I had a problem with my starter solenoid my truck was not starting. i have a 1996 ford ranger i bought a new one the truck started a few times and then it stopped. what is my problem.


You should have your battery tested & make sure that the terminals are cleaned & well protected wth grease once charged fully. Since you crossed/jumped the solenoid & didn't get it to start until jumping the battery (providing extra voltage), that rules out the solenoid and the ignition switch. Sometimes a battery will test full without a load but will not provide the voltage to the solenoid to actually complete the circuit, thus the clicking sound. If the battery is strong, and the starter bad, the solenoid will click solidly once, passing full voltage to the starter that will either turn,hum, or do nothing. good luck

Mondeo wont start, makes a click sound when ignition is turned on


hi sounds like your starter motor has packed in with all the trying.. just quickly put your car in 5th gear and give it a rock this might release it if not then you gota replace it and as a must get your battery charged up so it has the correct cranking amps to turn the starter

Two days ago I noticed my battery was flat as I left the lights on. I recharged it last night and put it back in again today. I then pressed the lock button on my keyfob 5 times so that the key is...


That clicking is the starter trying to engage. Try jumpstarting the vehicle. Your battery may not have come back yet.... and you may need a new one. Try letting it run for a half hour or so after jumpstarting. If it starts immediately after shutting it off you're probably good to go. If it requires another jumpstart then you need a new battery.

1996 Infiniti I30 turn key and barely turns over


The problem is almost certainly the starter and not the battery. Once a battery gets to the point that you turn the key and nothing, not even clicking takes place, it is highly unlikely that after a few minutes it will turn over. However, the corrosion is an indication that the battery will need to be replaced anyway. Normally, the starter in the beginning stages of complete failure will do exactly what you described, turn the key and nothing, no noise, no clicking, nothing. I have seen starters that will start the car after doing that if the vehicle sits for a little while. The starter will engage fewer and fewer times until it finally completely fails. Sometimes, when you turn the key and nothing happens, you can have someone tap on the starter with a bar or something with a little weight while you are attempting to start it and it may start. The starter on that car is on the drivers side of the engine, toward the front, down low. I would suggest taking your car to a AutoZone, or parts store, or even Wal-Mart and have the battery tested, as that regardless of the starter issue, you are going to need a battery. Another thing, Infiniti starters will make a wheezing sound for a second as the car is starting, so listen if you can get it started again and see if you hear that sound. Hope this helps you and good luck.

1999 silverado clicking but not starting


Might want to chg. the starter switch under dash, sounds like its shorting out or something and keeping the starter engaged, try starting it in neutral and see if it does the same thing. I am not sure if the starter switch and park neutral switch are one in the same or not, but i'am thinking they are, that would account for the starter drive kicking out of the engaged position when you move the shift lever. Also make sure your connections to the battery are clean and tight.

Fiat Seicento Sporting - starting problem


I'd like to ask first, what service did you have done?

My best suggestion to you would be to have a automotive place check your starter, it sounds like you are having a problem with the starter itself, not the battery, not the alternator. I recently had a similar issue a few years ago on a 1994 chevy cavalier. Starts just fine, but once in a while I'd turn the key, "click" and the engine would not even turn over, trying it a second time got it started. Eventually, it got so bad, it never started again. I took it to a auto parts store that offered a free electrical system diagnostic service. They told me that I had a "dead spot" in the starter that if the starter stopped spinning in just that spot, it would not work when I tried to start the car.

If you are not hearing a "click" but you are hearing the starter "whirrr" then it's a problem with the starter solenoid. This part pushes a gear into the flywheel of the engine to start turning the engine over. So (because it's hard to type sounds) the correct sounds you should hear when you turn the key are..."click"(followed immediatly by) "rrrr...rrrr...rrr...rrr" and of course "vrooooommm". If you hear...(no click), "whirrrrrrr"(sounds like an electrical motor spinning) then nothing else. That is a problem with the starter. If you hear, "click" then nothing else, it is a problem with the starter it self or the wiring to the starter.

Please, excuse the very descriptive "sounds" as it is the best way to describe what you SHOULD be hearing every time you start the car.

Some less common problems include the voltage regulator, starter relay, and corroded or loose wiring to and from the battery and/or the starter. Checking wires and any electrical repairs can be dangerous if you do not know what you are doing and I have to ask you to talk to your local shop if you have any questions about fixing the problem. If you want to do the work yourself, I'd recommend buying (autoparts store) or borrowing (some libraries) a Chilton or Haynes Manual for your specific make, model, and year car. They've saved me thousands in repairs so far b/c I like woking on my own vehicles.

I hope that I could help you narrow down your problem so you can look up the repair and parts online. Or if you do take your car to the shop, let them check these parts first for the most likely source of the problem. Good luck, and if you still have questions, please write a comment and I will try to respond with a more specific suggestion. Don't forget to rate my solution! Thank you.
