2006 Ford Expedition will not start this morning, battery checks 12 volts, will not do anything when turn key to start position


You can jump starter relay to see if starter will crank the engine. Pull the starter relay, use jumper wire between terminals 30 and 87, terminal 30 is hot all the time and there is a fuse, the starter motor should crank the engine. If you try that make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. Two voltage circuits at starter motor, one is hot all the time. The other goes hot when relay is energized. The starter motor grounds through engine block. Battery positive and negative connections are important.

My '99 saturn sl won't start. the battery has a charge, and the alternator is good, but it won't turn over.


Hi Vernon, There could be a number of different reasons why your vehicle is failing to start. The battery voltage could be dropping during start and become unable to engage the starter motor to turn the engine. You can check this by trying the key with the head lights switched on. If the lights become very dim, you'll need to check the battery, meaning clean the terminals and then try to start with a jump from another battery. If you achieve start up and it fails again the following morning, you will probably need to replace the battery. There could be a problem with the starter relay or a loose contact for the starter motor, most lik3ely the one connecting to the soliniod. It would be good to know some additional information, such as does a clicking sound come from the starter when engaged? Is there a perceptible drop in voltage output when the starter is engaged? does the enine turn at all? Try what I've suggested and if that does not solve the problem answer the questions and let me know anything else which you may think is relevant. Regards John

96 gmc sierra 5.7 starter battery good. Starter clicks but won't catch. The starter has been operating slowly but usually the engine caught. Starts with a jump but the starter sounds like a 6 volt...


  • Check your starter with a multimeter for 12v reading
  • Check quality of Power cords, spark plugs cables, choke.
  • Check whether the drive belt or starter belt is loose.
  • Switched ON A\c can cause this due to a faulty stuck compressor!!

Car is absolutely dead - have tried jump starting it - lights flickered then went off - key is stuck in ignition


Probably dirty or loose battery cable connections or loose fround wire. Take the battery cables off, clean them and tighten them. Check the negative cable ground, and the starter connections.
