You could have a bad fusible link or a broken wire to the starter or a bad starter or a bad neutral safety switch check for power at the starter with the key in start position if no power bad fusible link if power then check solenoid in starter if the solenoid is good then id have to say neutral safety switch

05 cobalt. replaced starter and battery. starter solenoid spins but does not engage starter. head lights dim also when trying to start.


If the lights dim when the engine is trying to start, then the battery is not fully charged.

If the battery is not fully charged there is not enough speed to make the bendix on the starter slide out under centrifugal pressure and engage the ring on the flywheel.

Put the battery on a proper battery charger overnight. Also make sure the battery terminals as clean and tight, plus the negative strap to the body and the positive lead wherever it goes to.

Incidentally, the starter solenoid is not what you think it is as it doesn't 'spin'. It is an electrical relay used to take the massive amps needed to turn the motor from the battery to the starter without burning out the wiring to the ignition switch and the ignition switch itself. You mean the 'starter spins'.

Rv won't start. starter just clicked rapidly after replacement, battery tested good. Dash lights (high beam and Turn indicators ) light when ignition switch is un start position


Poor connection either at the starter, battery, alternator, or loose engine ground strap. Fully charge the battery also.

On my 99 beetle the engine rotates but wont start and when you stop turning the key the engine whines would this be a starter problem?


Could very well be a starter problem, but I typically suggest that one should check out the condition of the battery (may not be throwing sufficient amps to crank the starter), and then the alternator to make certain the alternator is providing enough amps to fully charge the battery.

Sounds like the starter is actually turning, just not fully engaging. when a starter dies 6 out of 10 times it's a bad selenoid (causing a loud clicking sound instead of the starter engaging). Doesn't sound like your immediate problem.

Try jump starting the Beetle. If it starts that was it's probably a battery or alternator issue. If your successful in getting the car started your local autoparts store (AutoZone, Advance Auto or O'Reillys) can test your battery and alternator for Free. Call before you go to make certain that their testing equipment is functioning.

if voltage reulator on alt. does not stop current after battery is charged it will over charge battery abd can drain cell from boiling electrolite out.check 4 bulged battery case(swelling) indication of overchaeging.the start problem could be your starter wires connection.remove starter wires clean contacts and torque respectively.dont forget the ground to motor.sounds like a loose or corroded contact somewhere.
