Not alternator, maybe starter. I assume the engine does not turn? Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

What is wrong when you turn the key to start and the radio and all the instruments turn on but the starter doesn't click and the engine doesn't turn on even after trying to jump start it


Dead battery

Dangerous practice to try & jump a dead battery

The battery cables could be loose at either end or corroded internally

Most likely the battery is worn out, if original to car
since it was new, or the starter solenoid is worn

You do not want to jump any vehicle made after the
year 2000 or your asking for possible problems with
todays electronics.

You need a good battery that has been tested & fully
charged, then only jump with a jump pack,not another car

2003 lexus es300 won't start... radio lights and windows work. Tried a jump start, still doesnt work...


Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

My car wont start. i turn the key and the car doesnt even try to turn on. the horn and radio works though


Sometimes dirty battery posts cause this issue. Get a wrench, remove the cables from the battery, scrape posts and cables shiny clean and re-install

Have you tried jump starting it? If it will start this way, then either your battery is going bad, or the alternator is not working properly.

If it will not start (not even turn over) with a jump, then the starter may be bad. Good luck...Chris

2000 wont start just makes a single click when you turn the key. all lights, radio, windows.. work


First try to jump start. This helps us troubleshoot. If the car will jump start, we suspect the battery terminals are loose or need cleaning. If it will not jump start, then we check the starter, fuse/relay, and ignition switch.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines and let me know if you have questions.

2003 Trailblazer- no power after key stuck in ignition


Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.
