If battery is new, and altenator test good which would mean your battery is getting charged, then check the igntion wire that goes to the solenoid. They can get loose, broken, or dirty connections.
Check your battery cable connections on battery and on starter and ground to make sure they are very clean as well as tight.

My 1997 park avenue is stalling. When it does the gages tweek out. The break instantly locks up. And now it wont start nor even turn over. Idk. But I need a lead

There are very specific diagnostic steps to follow when diagnosing problems on vehicles like yours ! An using a professional grade scan tool is key , because it will communicate with all modules on the vehicle ! A shorted module or a serial data bus malfunction will cause a no start , no crank problem !
The PCM has the ability to disable starter operation if conditions inappropriate for starter operation exist. The PCM disables the starter if the engine is running, if a correct VTD password is not received from the PASS-Key?® III module or if the vehicle operator attempts to engage the starter for an extended period of time.
The PCM controlled starter system consists of the following components:
Starter enable relay #1.

Starter enable relay #2.

The park neutral position switch.

The ignition switch.

The starter solenoid.

The PCM.

Is there a SECURITY light lit on the dash ? Your best bet is take to a ASE certified repair facility !

Dead Battery

You will need to get to the battery inorder to do this. If you can't, because the lock is not functioning, you will need to call a locksmith and have the lock replaced. Do this properly, if you don't you could cause more damage than just a dead battery.

My isuzu 4hf1 sudenly stop while giving way to another vehicle, with the gear position in neutral and idle rpm.what is the proper trouble shooting,ty

i cant understand your symptoms. but...
no year car stated or country.
the engine is direct injection engine of 4.33L capacity.
diesel injected..
do not post about other cars and all that, (giving way)
tell what you do and car did. only.
your in neutral for some reason, and something happened what.?
my wild guess is engine stalled. (what trans, stick or auto?)
does not revolve,
what doesnt the starter or the engine.?
the starter motor cranks fast (huge current) and spins 300RPM
and spins the engine ,fast, and the engine starts.
the PCM (injection brain) does fueling.

I will do, cranks ok but dont start.
  1. check all fuses first.
  2. check for clean fuel filter.
  3. check for PCM errors. (diagnostic scans)
  4. Check that glow plugs work.
  5. test using TEST fuel (spray) did it start now.? or just for 3 seconds.?

if the engine fails to crank over (that mean engine crank shaft spins)
that that is a whole other, set of tests, (jumper cable starts are next)

Seized engine

I\'m not familiar with Fiats in particular, but what I am saying below should be rather generic for almost all cars.

If they are saying that it appears to be seized up, I assume that means that the starter doesn\'t crank the engine.

My first question would be this ...... do you know that your battery is still good. A battery can "short" from just setting idle for extended periods like that. Particularly if it were a few years old. When someone tries to jump it, it will show that it\'s charging at a high rate, when all you are doing is heating it up. Be careful. At that point, shorted batteries give off a very explosive hydrogen gas. If you get a spark when connecting the jumper cables, that might be all it takes to set it off. You may want to try a different battery. Make sure it\'s fully charged before putting trying to start the car again.

If the engine still does not crank I would look at two other possibilities. The first is this: Is the starter "locked"? Sometimes when attempting to start a car, the gear teeth on a starter drive instead of meshing, where normally one tooth on the drive fits between two others on the flywheel, the teeth of the two gears actually try to touch tips. This stops the cranking of the starter instantly and gives the impression that the engine is locked. It can happen in cold weather, or if those parts have some wear, or with low cranking voltage.

The second thing is, is the engine actually seized? And the easiest way to check is also one way of checking if the starter is locked as I described above. That would be to put a socket and breaker bar on the bolt head at the end of the crankshaft and try to turn the engine. Now, in doing that make sure you are not just loosening the bolt. If it loosens, just try turning it the other way. If it does move, you\'ll see all the belts and pulleys also turn. That would indicate of course that the engine is not seized. If the starter was locked, you will often hear a "click" as the gear on the starter drive snaps back in place.

I have often seen engines that will seize just from sitting for extended periods. Especially if you live in an area of big temperature changes or high humidity. If that\'s the case, you can usually break it loose by pulling hard on the breaker bar when attempting to turn the engine. Or, if you have a manual transmission, you can try having someone push the car. Turn your key on, put the shift lever in a higher gear, like third. And then as you are being pushed, let out the clutch slowly. The car will either crank over, or the tires will start to slip and the vehicle will stop.

I hope this all helps. If the engine was running right up to the time that it was parked 4 months ago, I would be most inclined to say that you have a bad battery or starter.

Good luck!

Trucks been rolled , now won't crank

Try this.
Take a positive battery jumper cable and hook it directly to the big lug terminal on the starter solenoid that the cable hooks to from the battery.
Take the negative jumper cable and hook it to a good steel, iron, or aluminum ground connection right by the starter, on the motor.
Now try the key to start it.
If it still says nothing, I'm thinking you have some wire harnesses unhooked from the rollover.
Someone really good could take a little jumper wire and connect the tiny terminal on the starter solenoid (which goes to the key switch), to the positive battery cable, and that should make the starter work, hopefully.
If it cranks with this direct application of power to the starter, be sure and check the "ground straps" between the motor and the frame. I think there are about 3 or 4.
Some may have snapped.
Be blessed.

Problem starting 2006 Merc Milan Premier on SOME dry, cold days - can take up to 10 minutes. Alternator is strong, 2nd new battery in 14 months. Had her hooked up and power draw is not from what wou

Not sure I am following your question.
If the engine cranks, the battery starter and alternator are working.
If you have to crank the engine for an extended period of time, it is not getting spark or fuel or both.
If it happens mainly during cold weather, and the first start of the day, I would check fuel pressure before and after you crank it.

1988 460 motorhome starting problem

When its hooked up, you should be able to put 12 volts on the little stud on the solenoid and it should start. One large stud will have 12 volts on it, so just jump it right there. Did you get the wires in the right place. The solenoid should have 1 large wire going down to the starter. Be sure the battery cables are clean and tight ( both ends) Check battery voltage when cranking, should go to 10-11 volts. Check voltage between negative terminal on battery and engine, should be ZERO when cranking. The solenoid has 2 large studs, make sure the battery positive wire and all the other wires are hooked to this stud, the other large stud should just have the wire going to the starter.

When I turn the key the engine turns over but then starts to click. I've tried to jump start the vehicle and it still has the same problem.

if your connections are all ok and the battery isn't VERY dead and you are using quality jumper cables may have a bad starter motor.

2002 s2000 will crank but not fire

your battery may be dead dead. The electric clicking is a telltale sign that the battery is weak or depleted and does not have enough juice to turn over the starter. This is extremely common when the car is left to sit for an extended period without being used.

the clicking you hear is the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter, but the battery is to weak to do so.

There are a couple solutions. First you can get a set of jumper cables and jump the s2000 with anther battery. Once the car is running the battery will alutomatically begin to recharge.

the second is to buy and use whats called a trickle charger or 'battery tenderizer' this is a small device that you plug into the car and it will automatically keep the battery charged over extended periods of time without the risk of over charging the battery. If you use one of these it will also slowly charge yoru current battery enough overnight for it to work in the morning
