If its not your starter then its the ignition switch located between your positive battery cable and your starter solinoid. Also advanced associates are not the most Car-smart people. i can not tell you how many times some one has told me there car makes a clicking noise and they have already had the starter tested, well i hate to inform you its your starter. because you have a radio, a/c, windos, locks, power steering, radiator fans, ect. you have all this power robbed from the solinoid on top of the starter, so when they test your starter, its not a proper test becuase the machine that tests the start does not account for all that power loss.

97 chevy lumina won't turn over but lights work. Makes a click sound and thats it.


You need a new battery-
It takes a great deal more power to crank a motor than it does to light up the lights. This is why your lights still come on even though the battery does not have enough power crank the engine over. If you install a new battery keep an eye on it...if it dies quickly then you have a bad alternator.

When you hit the accelerator on my 97 caviler it make a noise nd the jerks a little. whats wrong with it


it would seem you need to tune your car up.
I suggest spark plugs , wires and a cap/rotor kit , along with a new fuel and air filter.

Car Starts Really Rough.


Check the fuel/air sensor and air filter. When you first start the car only press the accelerator pedal once. If while turning the ignition switch you here a grinding noise that would be your starter going out. The smell of fuel signals that your car is either flooded from pressing pedal or fuel mixture is incorrect. Hope this helps.

97 Chevy Astro will not start


Sounds like your battery / starter may be dead. Do you get a clicking sound at all? A click will indicate a dead starter, a buzz indicates battery issues.

Caviler not starting had battery replaced


The starter motor solenoid has burnt contacts, that is the noise you hear, replace the starter or the solenoid if u can just buy that part.

I have a 2001 GMC Yukon. It was running fine until two days ago. I went to start it on Saturday and it would only make a clicking noise. I was able to start it with jumper cables. I drove for an hour...


i had the same exact problem with my chevy s-10, but once i replaced the battery it ran fine no problem, u may have fried some circuits and relays while jumping the car, and alot of times that clicking noise is your relay burning out, did your car start doing weird things too? like ejecting cd's, flashing lights really fast and weird noises?
