2013 range rover dead battery car is locked

Some vehicles it may be possible to use a battery charger at the starter motor bat terminal, in order to try to charge battery. I don't know if you can get at your starter motor or not? Your saying the doors are locked and no door lock key? Any way, just a thought.

Starter motor whines but wont engage with engine on my rover P2

You will need a new starter rebuilt ect. to replace the one you currently have that is defective. you sound like you are spinning the starter motor but the starter bendix is no longer engaging the flexplate/flywheel on the engine.

How do you remove a starter motor from a toyota verso corolla


Just did this the other day on my 1993 corolla (same engine, etc).

It helps to first get the replacement starter motor so that you have something to look at and see how it looks like, and where the mounting bolts fit.

The starter motor itself is mounted on the back side of the engine with just two bolts, and it is in principle an easy replacement. The downside is that the bolts are not so easy to access, so patience and some good tools are important.

You'll have to raise the front end of the car enough to work under it. Open the hood and
disconnect the battery terminals from the battery. Go underneath the car and disconnect the cables from the old starter motor. One cable goes to a plug-in terminal (press down the retainer clip with a small screwdriver to remove, the other is fastened with a 12mm hex nut.

Now you can remove the two bolts holding the starter motor in place (14mm hex). The bottom-most bolt is accessible from below the engine and faces the passenger side of the car. If the bolt seems hard to get to, cheer up...this is the easy one :-)

The second bolt faces the DRIVER side of the car, and is accessible from under the hood. It's easy to find, but it is surrounded by a lot of cables and stuff that get in the way.
I removed the air filter and used a socket wrench with a hinged handle to get the bolt started, finishing with a regular wrench.As the second bolt loosens, you should have someone else hold the starter motor in place, and catch it as it comes off.

Getting the old starter motor out of the engine compartment is a bit of an obstacle course...I did it by moving away part of the plastic underbody cover on the passenger side. Replacement part goes back in the same way, Again, have someone hold the new starter motor in place while you reinstall the first bolt. Connect the cables to the starter motor terminal, replace anything (like the air filter) that you removed for the installation, reconnect the battery, and turn the key.

I am no mechanic, and it took me about 3 hours once I had everything I needed. Someone more competent could certainly do it faster.

Best regards.

I may have to replace my starter. Is it easy to replace in a 2006 Ford Taurus, can I do it myself? . How much should it cost to take it to a repair shop?

hi this depends on what engine/motor is fitted as there are a two different types of starter motor, first one is a top mount starter and the other is an inserted side mount, depending as i said which engine/motor you have got, but they are both easy to fit for an armature mechanic if you have the tools to do it it is only 3 or 4 bolts and 2 wires, you are looking at possibly 70 to 100 US to fit one, not including the price of the new starter..hope this helps please vote thanks

Dead battery? no sound except a small click when keyed turned on

What you describe is the classic symptom of a failed starter motor. It's not the motor itself, but the starter solenoid which has failed and as they're part of the starter motor assembly on modern vehicles you have to replace the complete starter motor.

It is an easy DIY job if you have the right tools (a 1/2" square drive socket set and a few spanners). Otherwise, expect to pay for half an hour's labour on top of whatever the starter costs.
