It sounds like the solenoid in the starter is engaging but the motor is not turning. Make sure you have all of the wires back in the correct spots and that none of the wires are crossed at the solenoid. Sometimes the eyelet and the end of the wire can be touching another post on the starter causing a short. There could also be something wrong with your engine not allowing it to spin. If there is not a wiring issue, you could have been issued a faulty starter. These have a core charge because they are rebuilt, meaning the starter you have is most likely not new, just a rebuilt one that someone else returned that was broken as yours was. I hope this helps.

New Battery/starter and still wont crank.


car wont crank or car wont start? I would say your battery cables are bad,, acid gets in from battery and erodes internal cable parts... need a Meter to check it out.. put the meter on battery while someone tries to start it, if the voltage drops from 13.5 to 10 then it is trying to turn over, I always have the new starters tester before I leave a store, they are remanufactured in Malaysa and they use old parts in most of them..

I have a 1988 2wd pickup and the starter won't


starter wont turn or engages the flext plate,flywheel and still wont turn engine over?if this is the case you have a seized up motor,but if it doesnt even click check signal wire from ignition switch for power when you turn the key to crank.if no power your ignition switch,park/neutral safety switch(clutch switch if manual trans) or wrongly installed wired could be the problem.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

I have a 1992 chevy 1500 p.u truck - it wont start its making a clicking sound but nothing is turning over. its not the battery we put a brand new one in and it still wont work. Any ideas?


The clicking is from your starter solenoid, trying to get the starter working. If your electrical connections to the starter are tight and clean, then the starter needs removing and testing.

My 4runner wont start. it clicks once but wont crank or turnover. battery is new and starter was replaced less than a year ago.


You will need a meter or a test light to check the starter. You will have a big wire cable going from the battery to the starter that always has 12 volts positve at it. The smaller wire will have 12 positive when the ignition key is turned to "start." If you have both of these at the starter, your starter is bad.
