If you raise and support the car on stands you will find the starter on the front of the engine between the radiator and the engine block,follow the positive cable from the battery to it.The solenoid bolts to the starter so you need to remove the starter from the car.The most common repair for the problem that you are discribing is to replace the brush holder asmbly inside of the starter.Let me know if you need more help.

Club car won't start turns over slow battery is full charged?


battery could be fully charged but it depends on the amps from the battery. try jump starting using another vehicle or a jump starter, if you try these and it runs faster and starts change the battery also make sure the battery is the compatible battery for your vehicle some time the wrong battery is fitted to the vehicle, check these out before checking anything else

My 2000 passat is in anti theft mode and won't start


Make sure that the battery is in a fully charged condition and reconnect, Positive post first and then the negative (This helps to avoid accidental short circuiting) Close all doors, bonnet/hood boot windows etc. Lock the vehicle with the key. Leave vehicle for at least 10 minutes without disturbing it. Unlock vehicle and start the engine. I have had to use this method on various makes of vehicle. It allows the system to reset. PLEASE NOTE the battery must be fully charged.

No light can come up including ignation key


check vehicle battery connections for obvious corrosion. If none is present, use another vehicle and battery jumper cables-properly hooked up, and with 2nd vehicle idling, try cranking Toyota. If not immediately starting, give it a few minutes to charge toyota battery, and then try again. A fully drained battery will require several minutes charge from second vehicles charging system to sufficiently charge drained battery.

Can a battery read 12volts when engine doesn't start and if lights get turned on voltage drops to 3 volts does this mean the battery is no good


Your battery is definately suspect.Give it a good charge and check it again. If it drops like that when you turn on the lights replace it.A fully charged battery in good condition will read about 14.2V when fully charged. When you turn the key to start it will drop to about 11 and come back up when you turn the key off.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

1994 mercury villager stalled while driving and will not restart a new starter has already been put on previously to this


Ok, I am assuming that your BATTERY is fully charged and has at least a 12.5 volt reading with a voltmeter. and that the BATTERY connections are CLEAN and TIGHT. You can usually tell if the BATTERY is up to a good charge if; you turn on your headlights and they are bright and clear. If they are dull and almost yellow looking, then you either have an undercharged or bad BATTERY or a bad connection somewhere; this could be anywhere between the BATTERY terminal and the starter. Make sure to Check the BATTERY GROUND connections very good at the BATTERY and where it connects at the frame of the vehicle. Also, if your BATTERY is fully charged, turn your headlights on and turn the key to the START position and look at the headlights, they should only dim a small amount; if they go out completely or almost dark, there is another electrical problem that is keeping the vehicle from starting. If all looks good with the BATTERY and connections and the motor still won't start, you could have an engine problem. Please state whether or not the engine will TURN OVER when you try to start it, that can make a difference for the diagnosis.

I have a 2000 toyota camry. I turn the key on, dash board lights come on but the engine wont turn. checked the battery, fuses. they are good. could it be the alternator.


Did you have the battery checked by a doing a load test? Do you hear a "clicking" sound when you turn the key to start? If you hear a clicking sound, and you're positive the battery is good (fully charged) it could indicate a bad starter solenoid.

By the way....what kind of vehicle is it....a 00 Camry or an 04 Impala?

1988 nissan300 zx auto non turbo engine will not turn over battery fully charged just clicks when I turn key sounds like click coming from under dash. All gauges work but when turn key all gauges draw down...


You've got to check remove and clean your battery terminals and the connectors.Also check the main ground on the block from the battery negative terminal. Then check the tightness of the large red wire going to the starter from the positive battery terminal. And lastly, make sure the small push on terminal to the starter solenoid is tight. if not remove it and pinch it hard with your thumb and index finger. Push it back into place and see if it will start. If so while it is running check your charging systenm with a voltmeter,it should read between 13- 14.5 volts. If it does not start then jump the battery from another vehicle and then check the charging system. If your charging system is fine and the next morning you cannot get it to turn over you'll need a new battery.

86 cutlass wont start with a fully charged battery it turns over really slow and drains the battery


Have your starter checked. Once it goes bad it drains your battery very quickly when trying to start vehicle.
