Went to get gas the other day and got back in it and it wont start turn key and it does nothing, we tried jumping it and nothing.. had to tow it home


It won't crank? Have you tried rapping the starter with a hammer-a light tap- to see if it will work? If that works, the starter is going out and needs replaced. Alternatively, take the starter off and have it tested for free at a parts store.

2001 Bravada wont start. turn key all lights and gauges come on but starter is silent. not even a click. tap on starter it starts. 12 v at battery. whats wrong?


replace the starter as you have a armature/commutator problem
have it checked on the bench at an accredited auto electrical shop commutators/armatures can be bought separately to reduce cost of new starter

My 1997 cadillac seville will not start.


this is a one time fix most times if it works.
with someone turning the key to the start position someone else hits the starter with a hammer not hard but a good tap.
may take some continus tap tap tap tap to get it out of it's dead spot but have seen this work 80% of the time if the starter has landed on a dead spot. sometimes you can restart the vehicle again other times not! hope this gets you going to the parts store at least.
good luck

The starter windings are shorted. You need a new one.

1999 Ford Taurus Wont Start


Tapping the starter does not always work. I would check all the connections on the battery and starter. If these are good replace the starter. Don't forget the grounds.

Tack yes tack tap in wire on distributor


If you have anti theft on your car, it will be hard to install a remote start because your key has a chip in it to tell the computer your key is in the ignition. If you don't have antitheft, you still need to tap into the engine computer circuit to install a remote starter. This is not a do it yourselfer installation.
Or, are you just trying to jump start the starter from uner the hood to bypass the start position on the ignition switch? To do that, turn the key on and jump from the battery positive post to the starter solenoid mounted on the starter.
