First i do not know how to clean a starter ?? You might check the batery posts but you said you had the battery charged so I assume the posts are clean. Is the engin turning over if not it is probley the starter relay this might be on the fire wall but what you need is a mechanic to come and look at it and see if jumping the celiond will get it to turn over. check the posts are clean did you just turn it off one day and soon after it mjust would not start ??

I replaced the spark plug and ignition coil and now it won't start?


if the car won`t turn over then it could be a starter problem if the battery is as you say fully charged. check voltages at the starter. it could be a bad connection or starter relay.

What cause the car want start even if u jump it it just cleick


Start with the basics, here. Check that battery cables are not loose and are CLEAN, on the battery AND the starter. Beyond that, check the battery charge with a volt meter. Fully charged should be 12.5 volts or higher, you will lose starter spin at 10 volts. If the battery is low, hook it up to a charger and charge it up completely. If you don\'t have a voltmeter, go to the store and buy one. If you\'re going to try and fix things like this, you have to have one. If you can\'t do that, remove the battery and take it to someplace like AutoZone. They will charge and test the battery for free. If you can\'t take the battery out, or don\'t have a friend that can, have the car towed to your mechanic.



Here\'s the thing- I can\'t tell you exactly why, but some cars you just can\'t jump start. Happens more on side mount post type batteries. Because you can\'t jump your car doesn\'t mean it won\'t start with a fully charged battery. Now there are other things that could be wrong with you car, that it won\'t crank over and start for you.....but we begin the diagnosis with the battery.

My 2008 silverado won't start battery is charged


No, it isn't an ignition issue.

Check power to the starter motor solenoid.
If this is getting power when cranking, then the issue is with the starter motor solenoid or starter motor. Replace.

2001 jaguar s-type won't crank battery new and charged. Turn the ignition car won't make a sound


many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.

My car has a hardstart


ses this causes and fix it. God bless you
Battery Corrosion: Over time your battery connections can become dirty, or corroded. This corrosion breaks the connection your battery has with the rest of the car, and it won't start. Try cleaning your battery posts and try to start the car again.
Bad Igntion Switch: If your battery checks out, but the starter is still silent, it may be a faulty ignition switch. Turn the key to the on position (not all the way to start). If the red warning lights on your dash don't light up (and your battery connections are clean), the ignition switch is bad. If they do light up, turn the key to the start position. The dash warning lights should turn off at this key position (most cars). If you're not sure, turn on the headlights. When you try to start the car, the lights should either dim (a lot) or turn off completely. If they do, your ignition switch should be ok. If not, the switch will need replacement.
Bad Starter Connection: Corrosion can not only keep your battery from connecting, it can affect any electrical component, especially the ones exposed to the elements like the starter. If you have a helper, you can test the connection by holding a circuit tester lead on the wire that engages the starter. This is the smaller of the two wires connected to the starter. Be sure no part of your body is near the moving parts of the engine - it could still start at any time! Have a friend turn the key and check the current. If you're getting current to the starter but it ain't spinning, it needs replacement.

the clicking that you hear is coming from the starter relay. sounds like your ignition starter switch or ignition lock cylinder is bad.

My 2000 saab 93 does not want to start (turning key produces no response).battery is good, starter is good. suspect the IDM (ignition discharge module) any suggestion???


If it won't crank at all, it is not an ignition module-it is either battery, starter/relay, switch or clamps or cable connections.Remove and clean battery connections(inside lugs and battery terminals), check for tight connections at the starter, and check the ground cable at the engine/frame to make sure it has a clean (not rusty) tight connection. Check resting battery voltage, it should be at least 12.5 volts, if it is not, charge the battery so that it is. Next, turn the key to start, and check voltage-it should drop no more than 2.2 volts from resting, if more your battery is either failing or your starter is drawing too much amperage. See if a jump helps, if it does you need to get the vehicle to a commercial auto parts store to load test the battery and check cranking amps and starter draw.

My 1999 mitsubishi diamante will not start. I got a friend to jump it but it still would not start. I took the battery out and took it to autozone to charge it. But autozone would not charge it because...


It sounds like you need a new starter. If you hear the starter click when you turn the key to start, replace your starter since you already replaced the battery. You might want to have your alternator checked out, or when you get your car started, test the battery terminals with a multimeter. You should have around 14 volts with the car running. If not, you will need a new alternator. The alternator won't keep the car from starting though, unless the battery was drained because it wasn't charged. Even then it is the battery keeping the car from starting.

If the starter is not clicking, check your fuses under the hood. If all checks out, you may have a bad ignition switch.

1996 ford taurus wont start


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

First, be sure that the battery has a good charge for if it's weak there won't be enough power for the starter to kick the flywheel. Second is, if the battery is fully charge and it still won't kick, the starter itself can be faulty. If that's the case, it will surely need replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
