I think it's an alarm problem, make sure the alarm is disabled.

Distributer has nothing to do with cranking. Sounds like starter, tap on starter while someone holds key in start position. Make sure your battery cables are good, too.

Will it crank in neutral ? I am assuming you have the purple wire on the correct terminal.
Is the starter relay working ?

99 sable won't start, replaced battery,starter,alternator, but still wont even crank. code reader also said map sensor so it was reset worked for alittle but now nothing


If the car does not have a security system, I would check for voltage at the starter from the battery and from the key switch.
The power from the key switch goes thru the neutral safety switch before getting to the starter.

Starter relay clicking, but car wont start


Locate your starter and with the vehicle in park have an assistant hold the key in the crank position while with a test light you check for power at the posts on the starter solenoid. One post shoul have power from the battery, the other from the ignition switch and the other should supply power to the starter motor. Make sure your battery is in good shape and fully charged. If all you get is a click from the solenoid then it's likely that you need a starter. If no power fom battery check battery and positive cable/connection for integrity and tightness. The small post is power from the ignition switch if no power her with the key on the crank position check fuses, park/neutral safety switch and it's related wiring.

1990 f150 ford turn ignition seloniod fires starter does not turn over


I haven't seen one of those starters in a long time! :) Check to make sure there is twelve volts getting to the starter when you try and crank it. If there is than try turning the engine over by hand just to make sure something isn't locked up. If it turns replace the water. You can also try tapping (key word is tapping) on the starter while somebody holds the key in the crank position or while you jump the solenoid. If the starter works after tapping replace it. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Security on. car wont crank. can trun key wont


verify that you have a fully charge battery and that you have the same amount of voltage at the battery as at the starter when the key is turned to the start position. If not repair fault at positive cable either at battery or at starter. If voltage checks good. Use a remote starter and turn key to the on position and try to crank over engine with remote starter. if engine cranks over. You have a defective starter solenoid and starter must be replaced.

No crank


shorting to start motor will allow the motor to turn but the ignition system is still off.
try with key turned to ignition position.
suspect starter solenoid on starter motor.
suspect fuses maybe there is a fuse which has blown.
suspect ignition key switch maybe defective.

98 bmw 740i wont start


I would first check the condition of the battery. If the battery is okay, that is it puts out enough current to operate the starter. I would then check for a short. The battery would be dead in a couple of hours only if there is a short or another load on the battery.
