SOURCE: Battery good, starter good, Alternator good. Car

Most likely it is a Starter Solenoid or ignition switch if starter turns but motor does not crank the bendix may not be kicking in on the starter even if it is turning also check flywheel for broken teeth.....Good Luck

SOURCE: engine not cranking

you say your motor will not crank, meaning it's not turning over at all? if that's the case your should hear a ''clicking'' noise when you try to start it idicating that your ''solinoid'' on the starter motor is defective. it pushes the bendix assembly witch pushes the starter gear into the flywheel of the engine making it ''crank'' over so it can run. that was my problem last year & it worked fine after that. this is for a 2.2 lt ecotec engine 2005. remove starter motor to check with 12 VLT battery to see if it kicks out or not. hope this helps.

How do I know if I need a new starter or alternator is gone out the car won't start but the battery is good

if battery is good, then alternator is ok if battery has not be charged separated from when the car was last running. running a car on battery only, with bad alternator drains battery very quickly.

Car clicks but wont start

the alternator lamp will not go out until the engine runs..
the alt converts engine horse power to electric power,
no engine, no alt.
so that means the engine will not start, or better it wont crank
subzero C or Subzero F.,, -10F or -10C, vastly different temps.
no crank, then jumper cable crank it with donor car running.
crank now,?
yes , then battery is bad,weak or just discharged.
no, then starter bad, or key line bad.
hot wire starter solenoid. cranks now, is bad key line
if not, bad starter.

did you wiggle the shifter at crank.
did you wiggle key. extra.
did you try crankiing in neutral using fresh start contacts.>... yah.

2000 expedition no crank

try to turn the motor over by hand. If you can't. Remove the serpentine belt and you'll most likely find a frozen alternator or water pump or something.

Crown vic 2000 wont crank ? battery, alternator,starter,starter relay all good ?

The problem is in the wiring harness,yes the battery and starter is good, the harness you repaired is the PRNDL. for the starter to start it need a path when the vehicle is Park or Nuetral,there the path is closed some how by Park and Nuetral the path is open.Thats why there is a no start.when in park or nuetral the path is closed.

No crank means dead battery, jump it or get a new battery. If your battery was not dead and you didn't get fuel or it did not start you would get a cranking noise and no starting

2002 ford ranger quit running on highway, pulled over tried to start but wouldn't crank over, starter just clicked like a dead battery. thought alternator died then drained battery. today jumped battery,...

If the starter is just clicking,then it is not,but if the starter is kicking the starter drive out,and that is the noise you are hearing then it might be,turn the crank pulley with a socket and ratchet ,clock wise,if it turns then this is not the problem,make sure the ground to the engine is good,if the ground cable has gone bad,this will happen.

Check connections to the battery to make sure they are tight and clean at the contact points.

A fresh battery should start a car if the starter is good.

If you have an ammeter, hook it up to see how much amperage is being drawn when attempting to crank the engine.

If it's above 100 amps or even above 75 amps and does not turn, you have a bad starter.

Sometimes tapping the outside of the starter from below with a ball peen hammer while cranking the engine (need a helper) can start the car if the starter has a bad spot on it.

The alternator comes in to play if the battery is discharged and isn't getting charged by the alternator. The alternator is probably not the problem if you have a new battery and can't turn over the car, at least for that part of the diagnosis.

So, I wouldn't worry about the alternator until the starter and battery are eliminated as being the problem.
