This is going to sound dumb but is it in park? Sometimes they get stuck between gears (especially when cold) Make sure it's in neutral or park

Loud click and buzz when trying to start car

your starter is shot. The click and the ting sound is your bendex not engaging properly. You can catch car on fire, or mess up your computer if you keep trying to start it. Be sure to disconnect the battery when you change it. Good luck

Hello I am in a pickle. Here is the situation. I am haveing start up issues with my 97 grand cherokee. the first time it was because the battery cables were not cleaned and connected tightly. Now it is...

In order for your starter to operate, you need 12v at the main cable and that reading should not drop below 9.5 with the key turned to the start position. You also need to see 12v at the small trigger wire terminal with the key turned to start. (same terminal you jumped to with your screwdriver).
If you have replacement terminal ends on your battery cables, make sure the wires are clean as well as the contact surfaces on the battery. Also make sure that the grounds are good.
Your power going to the trigger wire goes through the neutral safety switch and the starter relay in the power distribution center. A fuse is either good or it has failed. It will not work "sometimes"
If you have power at both ends of each fuse they are good.
If you have power (as I outlined) at the starter, chances are that the starter itself has worn out.

I have bmw 316i n reg went out to start it and there was nothing it would bump start so i changed starter motor and next day was fine then day after it done it again does anyone know what it could be...

there may be a damaged wire coming from the receiver ring which sits round your ignition lock, this "reads" your key and allows the starter to turn your engine over so if there is an intermittant fault here that could cause your non-starting.

Turn on ignition everything works but want start

sounds like a starter. if possible without getting hurt maimed or mutilated, try tapping on the starter (best done with a rod standing beside the car) while someone holds the key in the start position. if car starts (works about 50% of the time) it's the starter. otherwise, if all lites come on, radio works, etc but nothing when you turn the key, replace the starter

It was cold this morning and went out to start the diesel truck, turn the key and let the glow plug lite go off and try to start and nothing, it won't even crank over. Came home that day and it had warm up...

you can have a weak battery alot of time when its cold it effects battery's with dead cells but when they warm up. Make sure your battery cables and terminals are free off corrosion if they aint clean the and try you may need to jump it after or it could be an altenator or number of diffrent things.
