Starter/solenoid is near the bottom of the engine bolted into the transmission.

Daniel, If battery is known to be good, could be bad connections at battery, starter/solenoid, or ground on engine/frame, battery cables also could be bad with build up of corrosion internally. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Try checking out the PRNDL switch (neutral safety)on the tranny . Pull out the plug where the shifter cable linkage is and then check that signal wire at the starter for power . If it has no power with the switch unplugged you found your problem . Shorted neutral safety switch .Seen it many times on FORD .

I have a 2004 Dodge Neon and I just replaced the battery and for some reason sometimes when I'm running a lot of errands when I turn it off it won't turn on again. It won't even make any noises...


Something is wrong in your start circuit. From battery to ignition switch, and ending at the starter solenoid. You would have to start checking for where power is lost between the switch and the starter. If you have power to the starter solenoid on the small wire at the starter (can check with a test light while someone holds the key in start), then the starter would need testing.

Just finished driving car, tried to start it back up and nothing happens. Radio works fine, lights come up but car won't start.


if starter is not engaging or clicks then have battery load tested. if battery checks good then test the voltage draw on the starter,may be dragging when it gets hot.

Windshield wipers do not work. Car sat one day. Worked fine previously. 2004 Nissan Maxima. Had about 3" snow. No ice on car. Temp around 32 or 33 degrees. Brushed snow from car. Came off...


when you turn the wipers on do you hear any sound? If so, then you may have disconnected a ball joint in there behind the firewall - typically the top (black) panel (under the wipers/ at the back of the hood) comes off or you could find other access to inspect more thoroughly to be sure. If no sound, test the power to the wiper motor with a test light, if no power, check fuses, wiring, ground, etc.,
Best regards

Car won`t start at all. Just a fast clicking sound from the engine when the ignition key is turned. The lights, radio etc all work fine.


Low battery or bad connection at terminal. Try jumping from a car that's running. If it still doesn't crank, then you have a bad solenoid.

Car wont start, lights and radio turn on, not able to drive


turn on headlites and windshield wipers do they work? if they do then the battery is not the problem,,unless you been trying to start it a lot and drained down the battery..get a jump from someone AAA. if the car makes a clicking noise when you try and start it then the battery is drained . if you get a jump and it still wont start then the starter is bad... rap on the solenoid on top of the starter, with a piece of wood, while someone tries to start it, and usually i"ll start one time for you, don't shut it off or you'll be stranded again.

Car no longer starts


Check battery terminals make sure they are not corroded and that the are tightly secured. If all is good the battery is at fault. Replace battery and then have charging system checked to make sure the alternator is working fine. Or you can remove the battery and have it load tested a t an Auto_zone for free.
