Could be a weak connection at the ignition switch wire at the starter solenoid, or a bad connection at a battery cable end, or even a bad cable. Could also be a bad solenoid, or the armature in the starter has failed. a sometimes decent driveway check is to try smacking on the starter with a metal object as someone else tries to crank it. if the car cranks the problem is down there (probably starter). an auto parts store can check it for free if you remove it and take it to them.

    If you are certain the battery is good via load testing, you might try removing (first) the negative battery terminal and cleaning both the battery and cable contact points, then the positive cable to clean that point.
    If these were clean, there is still the other ends to check on both of them.
    The heavy positive cable will go directly to either a separate starter solenoid or one integrated at the starter but this end is pretty critical and exposed to road contaminants and could be corroded.

    I would check those things before replacing anything.

2001 honda civic wont turn over, battery-starter-good, timing belt good, engine will turn by hand but when attempting to start it just clicks. Im leaning towards the ckp sensor


The crank sensor only comes into play while the engine is cranking or running to tell the computer where TDC is.
A no crank issue would be only the starting or security system.
Do you have battery power at the starter when the key is in the start position ? Are the battery cables clean and tight on both ends ?

I have a 1994 grand am that wont start..it just clicks but starter is good and battery


If you are saying the starter clicks but the engine will not crank, and you know for a fact the starter and battery are ok, the engine may be locked up.
Can you turn the crank with a wrench on the alternator pulley ?

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

Car wont start. power to accessories. wont turn over. wont even click. new battery ad new starter. any ideas?


Hello,
If you not even have a click this narrows it down to only a couple of areas. Most likely it is a ground issue. I for sure would really check your cable and connection from your battery. The hot lead and more importantly the ground that goes to the frame. If it is not clean and grounded real good, you will not even get a click. if you turn key on and hear nothing, it is for sure the connections from battery to ignition. Now, if you can turn on head lights and all that, that mean your getting power to your ignintion and battery is good, now what this means is the connections from your starter that go to the battery are not good. Check those real good. I am almost positive this is going to be a connection problem of starter and battery. keep me posted MIke

Not a handy man or fix it man. 04 tribute, wont start, battery wont jump start but dash board lights are on, there is a click click click noise and it wont start


Clicking noise is the sound of the starter being bad and not having enough power to turn the motor over. Replace the starter.

WONT START JUST CLICKS, RADIO,WINDOWS,LIGHTS WORK


The clicking sound is usually associated with a dead or low battery where there isn't enough power for the starter to crank so it clicks. Test the battery as it should read 12V plus/minus .2V
If the battery is good, then the starter solenoid, starter cables or the starter motor itself could be a problem.

97 chevy lumina wont turn over


The starter solenoid will click when the battery is to low to start the car. Have the battery charged and load tested to make sure it's good. Check the charging system to make sure the alternator is good. Check the wire connections at the starter. If either is loose, the starter won't work.
With a full, known good battery, turn on the headlamps and try starting the engine. If the headlamps stay bright, the contacts in the solenoid are bad. If the headlamps dim greatly or go out, the starter is shorted out and must be replaced.
Also try turning the crankshaft manually with a breaker bar and socket if you suspect that the engine may have seized up.
