If it will run with a boost hooked up, or with battery fully charged, then alternator needs to be tested. Charge battery back up, check and record voltage before starting ,then start it and check voltage when engine running . It should increase when engine is running, otherwise something wrong with alternator itself, or wiring to or from it. Clean and inspect wiring to be sure.

I have a 1996 dodge caravan that starts hard in cold weather!


Cold weather has an adverse affect on batteries. The clicking sound could be from the starter solenoid not receiving enough voltage to energize the starter motor. The engine being hesitant to start and run could indicate the need of new spark plugs, wires, etc.

97 sonoma only runs on starter fluid


if it ran fine before this happened then check the fuel pump relay first. it may have shorted out when jumped off, or when battery was replaced

HELP with my problem to my Question and added details


A good hot battery shoulde do it. Have you had any problems with the security system? That's all that should keep it from starting now. Have you put a socket on the crank bolt to make sure the engine is not seized and turns freely?
Good luck.

2000 olds drove to work fine this morning this afternoon it would not CRANK, just a load starter/solenoid click. changed starter this afternoon, still same load click, checked battery volts 12.6 , cleaned...


This might noy be of much help, buy I would try a remote starter switch hooked up to the starter,with the ignition switch in the run position..then push the remote start switch.
This would give you an idea if the ignition switch is a part of the problem

The engine wont start in the morning but it takes 2 mins to jump it and will start first time all day.


If your vehicle is petrol powered, something, most likely the starter motor, is drawing too much current and robbing the ignition circuit. Oce started the engine will continue to start all day long, untill next morning. Have the starter motor checked out & make sure your engine oil is not too heavy for your climate too. It would be an idea to have your battery discharge rate tested while you're at it.

Clickc but won't start, lights ok, windshield


Most likely cause is your battery is dying. The clicking is generally a sign the voltage is too low to engage the starter. That ist started up with a jump indicates the starter is good and most likely cause is the battery. Take it to Walmart to be tested (they do this for free in hopes of selling you a new battery). They have decent batteries for reasonable prices and because they can be found almost anywhere they are a great place to buy a battery because they are always nearby if you need warranty return for the new battery.

1991 Camry, ran battery down, won't start with jump.


Check all fuses under dash and hood. Install a good battery or jump it. Have someone try to crank it while you check for voltage to the starter solenoid. Make sure all battery connection including ground to body are clean and tight. If good, make sure there is 12volts at the stater. If good, it sounds like a new sarter. Please let me know. Is this standard or automatic?
