Check the starter solenoid. If it is a manual transmission, try catching it in gear. If it starts and runs, then the problem is probably the starter solenoid. You can buy a rebuild kit at parts america.com for cheap.

I put my key in the ignition and try to start up my car to no avail. No sound at all. The dash lights all work, head lights work, trunk pops, etc... windows VERY slow u rolling, doesnt even try to turn...


Make sure that your battery is in good condition, either by load testing it or use a hydrometer. If the battery is good or if you replace it with a new one get a file or some sandpaper and clean the battery posts and terminals removing any and all corrosion / rust until your left with shinny metal. This is very important because everything relies on a good strong connection to operate efficiently.

check the battery cable for a good connection then make sure its in park move the gear shifter around and place back in park. check the head lights for full power. last thing is jump it with cables to make sure the battery is strong.

2006 Chevy Cobalt wont start. It doesnt turn over. All i can hear when i try to start it is a rapid clicking sord of sound. Any ideas!?


This means your battery is dead. Whether it's from a catastrophic failure of the battery, or something ran it down is to be determined later, but for now you should be able to jump start it to get it where you need to go. Be prepared for it to not start again once you shut it off, so make sure you're someplace you can get a jumpstart, or fix the car. If you charge the battery, or jump it and run it for a while, if it doesn't start again, you have a bad battery. If the alternator is bad, you'll get a big failure of the gauges and lights, and it will quit running altogether. If you're nearing about 60,000 miles, your alternator is running out of time anyways, so be prepared for that one.

Good battery, turn key doesnt do anything. Jeep


If its a stick you may have a problem with the clutch safety switch. They don't want you starting the jeep without the clutch in. If the safety switch has failed it may think the clutch is still released. Also make sure the battery terminals are clean. If your lights don't shine bright you need to start looking for a connection issue to the battery if you know the battery is good.

Starter problems


I am not sure where the starter is either but I also have starting issues with my car. I was told it is the battery and I often need a jump start but from what notice when getting a jump, the battery cables need to be connected properly for the battery to charge. It is easy to connect the red to red but when making the connection from black to the car is tricky and I can only tell that I have it connected when the lights get bright and the slightest wind and it sparks and is no longer connected. Mine also clicks when it doesnt have enough power to start the engin so I thought I'd let you know to be sure its really getting a charge when you connect jumper cables. If only the battery terminals were easier to acces and we didnt have to use the frame of the car as a ground (Black( I think it would be easier to jump for little old ladies like my mom. Good luck with your starting issue.

2003 focus won't start


Even though the radio works the battery is your problem. It doesnt have enough juice to start the car. you will have to take it out of the car and have it tested to make sure. Any auto parts store will test it free of charge. Poor quality cables will not jump a battery with that low of power. I learned that the hard way with my impala.

(ENGINE won't TURNOVER) Just a "click" then nothing...


How old is your battery? 1st thing to check is connections at battery and starter. Make sure there is no corrosion, clean connections with fine sandpaper, make sure connections are tight. If dirty or loose connections exist, you won't be able to start or jump your car. If connections check out ok, pull the battery out and bring it to a parts store for a free check of it's condition. If it's bad, again, you may not be able to even jump start it. If battery charge is good, and condition ok, check your starter. You can also get a free check if you remove it and bring it to a parts store for testing.

Once the battery is totally shot it acts like a resister Try jumping it with another car. If you left your lights on and drained the battery then of course recharge. If the battrey is no good anymore. you got to replace it. Make sure all terminals are clean and tight. Good luck

Stalls won't start even wtih jump


just a few easy things to check! if your battery is more then 3 yrs old,its a good idea to replace it, even if this is not the cure, but it sounds to me it is a good possibility,had the same problem with my car! see you don't want to jump start it through the battery in your car! the way to buy pass a bad battery is to connect the positive cable from the good battery to the positive post on the car being jumped, connect the negative cable to the frame of the car being jumped,NOT TO THE BATTERY.also, when u get it running take it right to a place that can check your alternator to make sure its o.k. their are some auto part stores that will do that for free and u could get the battery from them if needed.good luck to u,hope we helped!
