That could be your solenoid that is bad. Or just dirty or loose battery cables or corroded battery or the wire that goes from ignition to solenoid may be loose or broken.

If you know the battery is for sure, then it's the starter assembly. hope this was very helpful.

Would a bad starter cause my 84 caprice to shut off and not crank back while I was driving down highway it also started losing power before shutting off when trying to crank it it just clicks


check condition of battery and have the charging system tested. the starter will not cause the engine to stop running after it has started.

Why does my 1999 Ford Expedition eating starters after replacing valve cover, removed cruise control box but it is back exactly the same?


Its your starter shims. Put shims in , what is happening is your starter gear is remaining engaged even after it starts thus it tears up the starter and the gear. It may take 2-3 shims. When you replaced your first starter did it have shims? I am willing to bet it did. Give it a try and i bet this fixes your problem. Good luck

Car died with no warning


sometimes on a smaller v6 motor they dont make much noise when they lock up. the easiest way to tell if it is locked up on your own is to take a long breaker bar with a socket that fits the bolt on your crank and turn it. if you cant the motor is locked up.

My 2006 dodge stratus 2.7 liter sxt died and upon trying to restart it turns over but backfires in the intake manifold and dies , could that be the maf sensor?


No, unfortunately when I see this it is usually a broken timing belt or sucked valve. Both are bad. It could be an injector control, I assume the SXT is injected, problem but I doubt it. I would do a compression check to see if the compression is gone in any cylinder. I usually don't see a broken timing belt in a car that new but it is possible.

2000 Buick LeSabre died at 70mph, volt light came on when engine went, I coasted to a stop and then tried to restart, the starter spun but the engine wouldn't catch to start. Electronics were all still...


Think my friend sounds like your alternator has gone bad on you... Your battery still holds power and enough to run your electronics and starter but not enough power to run your ignition components.

Toyota lucida that was running fine then suddenly stopped,lights came up on dash then the engine died,tried to restart but the starter motor just clicked.i have changed the starter but it still clicks and...


If you have a known good starter on it and all the wiring to starter and relay is good, you may have a locked up (siezed) engine from lack of oil pressure or runnung hot. I would try turning engine by hand (put a socket and ratchet on the balancer bolt) and try turning it, if it doesn't turn then it is locked up.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire won't even turn over, but the


The radio will work even with a dying or discharged battery.

First, be sure to check all of your fuses in the engine compartment.

A full battery will keep the headlights bright with the engine off. With a dying or discharged battery, the headlights will be noticeably dim.

When you turn the key to crank the engine, does the starter try to turn or make a fast clicking? If so, the battery if low or dying. If it makes a slow click then stops, then it's REALLY dying.

If you don't have a battery charger, go to Walmart and get some jumper cables. Hook up a friend's car to yours. If it starts, then the battery was low, either from a bad battery or a bad alternator.

If it doesn't, you have electrical problems, possibly a bad starter or starter solenoid.
