    Sounds like battery to me too. Try taking off the battery terminals and cleaning the battery posts and terminals with a wire brush. Re-install the battery terminals making sure they are tight.

Chek the battery. If battery is too week it wount turn the engine and the relay is automatically disengaging starter than going back to strart position and so on wile you keep the key turned on.

Second thing could be that in the starter is som dirt and maybe rust. That is jamming starter and also causing starter relay to flicker, doe to owerload.

I have A 2002 KIA RIO that will not turn over, it seems to be like the starter is jammeb but i cannot find the starter on this engine. What could this be?


the starter is at the back of the engine behind the block ,try a socket and rachet on the front pulley first to make sure the engine turns over ,it could be seized up and this why the starter will not turn engine over

No turning over i go a crank sensor to replace but can't find where it gos.


Not enough info given. Does the starter turn? Does it engage the flywheel and actually turn the engine over? Does it only click and not turn over? Does it even click when the key is turned to the start position? I'm not sure about Chrysler products but some makes have an externally mounted starter solenoid (a fancy word for high-current relay). Some solenoids are mounted directly onto the starter motor and therefore a LOT harder to get to and much more difficult to replace. Yours also has a starter relay somewhere in an under hood fusebox. Whatever you do, DO NOT take a hammer and strike the starter!! That worked on a stuck bendix in OLD STYLE STARTERS. Newer starters have large magnets just under the casing that can so very easily be SHATTERED and completely destroyed by doing this. Old style starters were not made that way so you could hit them without doing damage to the internals. Typically this is how the whole starter action works: You turn the key to start & this closes the start circuit sending 12 volts either directly to a starter solenoid OR to a starter relay which in turn closes its contacts and sends 12 volts down to the starter solenoid which in turn engauges the bendix to thrust a pinion gear outward so it meshes with the flywheel teeth (a big metal plate bolted between the engine and transmission, makes the starter motor begin spinning to turn the engine over. This phase is known as "cranking". Starting is the next phase which occurs if the engine has compression, fuel & air (in the proper proportion), and spark. For example a engine having a bad ignition system may and most likely will crank over but will not be able to start. The part you got is for the ignition/fuel injection system, not the starting system.

When you turn the key you hear a click, click click and then nothing


The click, click, click you are hearing when you turn your key is the starter solinoid attempting to engauge but because the battery is dead it will not engauge. Charge the battery then start the car and check the voltage to the battery. It should be between 13.5 vdc and 14.5 vdc. If it is not, the alternator is bad. If the voltage is between the above mentioned values and the battery goes dead again it is a bad battery.

Starter engauges turnes slowly. new starter batt neg and poss cab


First you should check the ground cable and ensure good contact. Second make sure the battery is fuly charged (over night is best on a slow charger). It looked like you said a new battery so a good charge should fix it if it is the problem. I assume you have good connections on the parts you already changed. It is probably a bad starter (motor). You can remove it and have it tested. If it is good you might have an internal engine problem. Try turning the crankshaft. It should turn by pulling on the drive belts. Well it sounds like a bad starter.

Bad starting


what do you mean "bad starting"

starter dosnt engage?(starter engauges but dosnt catch flexplate or flywheel, maybe dosnt engauge at all)
barely turns over? (like theres no battery causing hard crank)

you can test your battery by starting the car with the headlights on, if the headlights go dim the battery is bad. your battery could be out of date or the alternator could be bad and not charging the battery.
