Hi! As a first course of action please do check the oil level for it may not have enough which can cause the engine to make unusual sound. Regarding the no start problem please do check the distributor coil for if it's worn it won't give spark to the plugs. Hope this helps and thank you for using FIxYa!

2001s10 starter won't engage makes no noise everything else works changed the ignitions switch could it be the neutral switch . I you play with the key sometimes it well start


I looked at info for the v6.
Two voltage circuits at starter motor. One comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other goes hot with key in crank position and is wired through neutral switch, then comes the starter relay. Use a test light to check for voltage. The starter motor grounds through engine block. Any testing, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. There are fuses involved, not only check fuses, check voltage on fuse circuits. Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.

My Battery is Good but when i turn it on no Clicking or turn over I Have Lights tho Whats the Problem?? HELP!!


Bad ignition switch, or starter motor or solenoid.

No clicking noise points to ignition switch isn't getting the juice to the solenoid (which is the thing that makes the clicking and allows the starter motor to engage the flywheel).

Jiggle around the key in the ignition and pull on the wiring harness a little. If you get it to start then you know the problem is in the switch or the wiring to the starter solenoid

Car will not start


I don't know how you tested the battery and starter, but let's go over it again. If the motor makes no noise when you turn the key, turn on the headlights. If they're bright, chances are the battery is good. Now, turn on the key and move shifter to N., Try to crank again. Next, back to P, and get somebody who trusts you to find the starter motor and gently bang on it with a hammer while you turn the key to start. Other things it could be is the ignition switch, the neutral safety switch, or starter relay, which all need testing point to point with a test light. Good luck!

Will not turn over! Starter won't engage!!


When you turn the key to on, do the dash and warning lights come on? This would verify power to the ignition switch.

It's like this: you have a positive battery cable with a lot of juice connected to the starter, but not to the starter motor. It is only connected to the starter motor when the start wire out of the ignition switch energizes the starter solenoid, mounted on top of the starter.

So you check the small wire to the starter for power with the key held in start. If it has power then, the starter or the solenoid is probably bad- as long as the battery is charged and the battery connections and starter connection is good.
If you have no power on the small wire in start, trace the start wire back to the ignition switch. You may need a wiring diagram- there is often a start relay, a park/neutral safety switch with automatics or a clutch safety switch with a manual transm., and sometimes a "crank" fuse. All or some may be in the path of the start wire from ignition switch to the starter solenoid. You would need a voltmeter or test light to check this circuit. If you want more help, post back with make, model, year, and engine, and I could look at a wiring diagram for your start circuit, or I could post a link for you to see the diagram.

I can hear the fuel pump running, lights are on, but won't start the car.


First make sure you have good battery connections. A poor connection will give enough power to turn on head lights but not turn on starter motor. Clean the connections and ensure they are tightened.

If connections are good, check voltage of battery. It should be at least 12 volts.

If battery voltage is low, either charge the battery, or attempt to jump start the car (red to positive terminals, black to negative terminals; attached positive first, prefer to attach negative terminal to a good metal location other than the negative terminal on the battery).

If the starter motor is visible, try tapping lightly with a mallet to free it up. This may or may not work depending on the problem. If the car starts, replace the starter motor anyway or it will strand you again.

Most cars have a starter relay and a fuse for the ignition. Do a Google search on the internet for your model of car, or look in your owners manual to find the location of the solenoid and/or fuse. Replace the fuse if it's burned out. Note that a shorted starter motor could cause the fuse to burn out, so replacing the fuse may not fix the problem. Suspect a shorted starter motor or wire if the fuse burns out again. You may need some professional assistance at this point to check the solenoid.

If the solenoid is bad, it is usually replaced along with the starter. Remove starter motor/solenoid and take to an Autozone or Oreilly or equivalent and have them check its functionality. Be sure to disconnect the battery's negative terminal before removing the starter motor.

If the starter is good, then your problem is likely either your car's security system (check if security light is flashing if you have such) or check the ignition switch. If you have a mechanic friend, see if he can bypass the ignition switch and get the starter motor to turn over.

Poor electrical connections or a bad battery or a bad starter motor/solenoid are the most likely culprits.

Car wont start. dim dash lights. battery good.no headlights.starter motor cranks with screwdriver but wont fire engine


Are you using a screwdriver because the ignition will not cause the starter motor to rotate? If so, there are a few reasons that can be:
1) The starter fuse is blown
2) The starter relay is defective
3) The clutch start switch is defective, or the wiring harness is not making a good connection ( in case you have a manual transmission). A similar switch is mounted on the automatic transmission to make sure the car is in park or neutral when starting.
4) There is also a 60 and 100 amp fuse between the battery and the ignition switch that could be defective.
5) The ignition switch is defective.

When you do use the screwdriver, are you putting the key in the "ON" position? This should start the car if the starter motor is in fact rotating.

I think my starter motor has gone? my car wont start unless i pus it and kick start it in gear. Is it the starter motor gone or battery playing up??


hi...

both may be the reason for not starting.

11.please check the terminals from the battery,wires and all in good order.then check the volt comin to the starter motor if the volts are correct then the problem is with the started motor. please service or replace with the new motor.

2.if no supply is comin to the motor terminla then ther is a problem with the wires.the wire is damaged so no power goes to the motor.

3.if the voltmeter/multimeter reads less reading then the problem is with the battery.the charge is not sufficient enough to start the motor. please recharge or replace the battery if required.

if my information was usefull please vote

I have a 98 plymouth voyager that does not crank. all lights and everything comes on but no crank. had battery and starter tested good. replaced fuel pump but still does not crank. please help!!


Check the transmission neutral start inhibit switch is not the cause of your problem. (try both 'P' to 'N' positions).
If the headlights work ok there should be enough power in the battery to at least make a solenoid type noise when start is attempted.
Check the battery terminals are clean and firmly attached to the battery,
Check battery is properly grounded to the chassis and motor,
Check that +12v is available at the starter motor engage solenoid when the ignition switch is held in the 'start' position - check any start slave relay operation.
If all above is OK, you may have a faulty starter motor.

Clicking not turning over battery good


Bad battery connection or loose wire.Clicking noise is a relay not getting enough or intermitant power from the battery
