Question about 1993 Volkswagen Eurovan

1 Answer

My 1993 Eurovan won't crank. I turn the key and nothing! Not even clicks. If I am lucky I get one click, but that is it. Here is what I have done so far - Changed the battery (the old one wouldn't hold a charge anyhow) Changed starters (when I was taking out the old one to get it checked one of the leads to the starter solenoid broke so I had to) Cleaned the leads from the battery cables, including the first ground hookup and all the little wires on both clamps. One time, after changing the starter, it started to crank but quickly gave up but that is as good as it got. If anyone could help me I will pay it forward as I can. Thanks

I would say that you do not have a good ground/connection on your battery. I haven't looked at your clamps so I would say replace them, if you are sure they are still good. Then make sure they are tight and can not turn them when they are tight. Hope this helps tim

My saab 900se won't crank

If you get a click or tick sound, then that would suggest to me that your starter motor solenoid is working, but your starter motor itself is stuck or worn out.
Check power to the starter motor when turning the ignition key to the crank position. If it is receiving power, then replace the motor.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee cranks well but will not start. I hear nothing when I first turn key on.

You hear nothing? It cranks well? I'm not sure if I understand what you are "listening" for. Do you hear the starter cranking the engine? If so, why are you expecting clicks?

1993 rx7 all elec accessories and head/tail lights work.... but does not start/crank... turn the key and not even the clicking sound of a low battery?... could it still be the battery?

yes, disconnect the battery and clean up the terminals, reconnect and make sure there tight (apply a bit of copper grease), if it still does'nt start (even under a jump start) you should check out the starting solinoid.

Will not start, when the key is turned there is nothing no clicking and the motor does not roll over. The headlights work fine and no change in brightness when the key is turned to crank. Starter was taken...

check to see if you have a bad crank sensor try these websites and if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your van wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.
