Remove and clean all the cables and wires to the battery, if they are corroded use baking soda dissolved in warm water to neutralize the corrosion, then a small wire brush.. retest f that is the issue great, if no either the cables are beyond help or the starter solenoid has burnt contacts in it.

2007 impala won't start sometimes


The most likely problem is a failed safety switch in the transmission. It will only allow the engine to turn over when in "neutral", or "Park". Next time it happens try moving the transmission selector through the full range of travel a couple of times. If this cures the problem, you may need new switch.

2002 Ford Taurus, V6 3.0 won't start. Attempted to start, but stop mid start. No clicking, just slience. What else?


Just to the left of the battery is the main fuse junction box and below that under the manifold is the starter with the solenoid on top with the positive cable going to the starter check for a loose connection, and the battery ground sould be right there nearby the starter grounded to the block check it also. You could have a bad cable although it may look okay under the insulator the copper cable may be damaged test with a volt meter while moving the pos and neg cables at both ends.

2004 buick rendezvous sometimes won't start. clicks but won't turn over. replaced starter, battery, and ignition switch. what now??


We just went through this with our 2003 Rendevous. Clicking like crazy but wouldn't start. Replaced the starter but still doing the same thing. Our next step was going to be replace the battery (which tested well) and the ignition assembly. Out of frustration, I hit the top of the hood and the headlights came on!! Further investigaton proved that the problem was a corroded ground wire on the battery. Hope this helps

My 2003 Grand Marquis just clicks when I try to start it and won't start.


Possibly needs a battery. Have the battery tested by an auto parts store. If battery tests good then problem is most likely the starter.

I have a Ford windstar 1996, sometime in the morning when I turn key on to start but no clicking sound or cranking at all. I have to move the shift to any positions and back to park position then I turn...


The vehicle you have was made with a start safety switch,, it will only start in Park or neutral, sometimes that switch has just moved with normal wear and tear ,, and can be aligned again, but if its shorted or damaged it will need replacement, its located at the end of the shift cable located on the top of the transmission,
