You can hear the solenoid engage but the starter doesn't turn. After 5-12 tries it starts.


If you got it recently go and get it exchanged, but most starters only have a 90 day warranty

Why wont my car start it died going down the road replaced starter?


If you put a volt meter on the battery and it reads 12 volts before you cranked the engine and it drops to 10 volts or less when you crank the engine, this indicates you have a bad cell in the battery and you should replace the battery because it is not holding the charge. The loud click sound coming from your starter is because you are not supplying enough voltage to energize it.

My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it


Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer

My 2008 nissan rogue will not start, i get a clicking sound. The battery is clean, so what could the problem be?


If you have good voltage in the battery and a clicking sound ... either the start solenoid is faulty or the starter is faulty. You can check the start solenoid with a voltage meter. Place the probes one to the starter side of the solenoid the other to ground. Have someone turn the key. The battery side of the solenoid will always have 12 volts on it. The battery side should only have 12 volts when the solenoid is activated (you turned the key). If you get 12 volts on the start side, suspect the starter.

My car wont start but my battery is good it just clicks


if your battery has 12 volts and you can hear click noise , try to locate the click noise. If that is coming from the starter location then the starter mtr is not working.a voltage check at the starter mtr with the key in the start position will verify the problem. if 12 volts is not present at the starter mtr thethe start switch or wires could be the problem

The booster battery is attached to the dead batttery. Lights go on. When key is turned, hear 1-2 click only.


you may have to let the battery charge from the [boost] 15 minutes should do it. the click you hear is the starter trying to do it;s job.be patient. let car run thats attempting to boost for 15mins while the cables[booster] are attached. trying to start the car any sooner only delays the boost process. you may have to replace your battery in the mercedes to get it running, if it has a dead cell in the old battery.a boost will not always work, but worth the effort. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

I Went to start my car at the grocery store today, and when I turned the key all I get is a click from up front.


Sounds like your battery is bad, or the battery cables have built up corrosion so that you need to clean the battery posts and the inside of the cable terminals. When voltage is low, there is enough power to make the starter relay click but not enough to make the starter crank the engine. You are hearing the relay. It is located at the end of the positive cable from the battery.

No power to starter


Hi Tonymcder;
Here's what happens in the start sequence when ypi turn the key.

When you turn the key, you should at least hear the starter solenoid click. When you turn the key the ignition switch sends 12 volts to the Starter solenoid ( really just a relay). The Solenoid closes and applies 12 volts (at a high current) to the starter motor to crank the engine. If you have a way to measure voltage, you should get 12 volts at the small terminal on the starter solenoid. The solenoid is mounted on the top of the starter motor.If you get
no voltage, probably an ignition switch If you get 12 volts and the starter doesn't crank the starter is probably defective. At this [point take a small hammer and tap the starter motor, not hard, just medium. Sometimes this will cause the starter motor to catch next time you turn the key. Best bet is to remove the starter motor (with solenoid attached) and take it to an Auto Zone type store where they can check it out for you. Be sure you disconnect the ground terminal of the battery before you attempt to remove the starter motor.
Hope this helps Loringh Thanks for using FixYa

My 2002 suburban will not start


First thing I would try is checking the actual battery voltage. Most batteries should be roughly 12.5 if new when sitting at idle. If the lights dim and relays click this is normally a sign of a weak/bad battery connection or possibly a discharged battery. If the battery has good voltage, and the lights continue to dim I would suspect checking the primary wire going to the starter with a 12 volt test light. You will want to check the smaller wire going to the starter and have someone turn the ignition to start. You should have 12 volts there. If you have 12 volts and the starter does nothing I would suspect a faulty starter at this point.
