IF the battery is known good and good connections, then the starter may be bad. Check the connections and rap on the starter a few times, that may get it going enough to get to a shop.

Crankshaft sensor - 97 Suzuki Swift. Need location.


can you afford a 10 buck walfart meter? DMM volt meter
the battery terms clean
fuses checked
starter dead, no jumper cables for a old car, its like first buy tool if ever there ways. huh>
so you cant jumper cable start car.
so we measure battery voltage cranking
11v good, hear clank, bad starter,
12.6v no clank is dead starter or dead keyline
hot wire key line, it cranks means key line DEAD.
try to crank in neutral? yet< A/t trans, this uses new switch contacts, wow it starts.?
lower than 10 v cranking is weak battery, no jumper cables, oops;.
or shorted starter, or seized engine, can you turn engine by hand.

my guess, is all this is too hard.
it takes tools to fix cars, some or are dirt cheap today.
unlike say in 1970 .... you in the good times.

What would cause a 09 sportsman 550 xp to jus


Likley either the battery is weak or the engine is seized or the starter is defective and drawing too much current under load.

On highway heard clank noise oil and engine light came on I lost power and now won't start


Sounds like your timing belt broke. Could be a very costly repair. Mine cost me over $1400 for a new engine basically. I'm no mechanic though, good luck.

Posted question couple days ago, my 2005 lincoln navigator wont start, replaced.starter and battery didnt work..when u put the key on dash board lights up but when u turn the key, nothing happens, no...


Are you certain the security has not immobilized the car? If it isn't a security issue, there is probably a problem in the start circuit.
If you check for power on the small starter solenoid wire, with the key held in crank, and no power is on that wire-the start circuit from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid has a problem. If the wire does have power with key in cranking position, probably a bad connection from battery to starter, since you have a new starter.
To be certain the engine is not locked up, put a socket and wrench on the crankshaft pulley center bolt and turn the engine over by hand a revolution or so.

95 Buick Riviera Died on the highway. 95 buick riviera was making a clanking sound, then I felt a big **** and everything shut off now car won't start, or do anything. what does this problem sound


Your flywheel may have broke or the crank could have broke. If the crank broke the engine is done. Try to turn the engine over by hand. You can put a socket on the crank pully bolt and try to turn it.make sure the key is off and out of the ignition. Sorry for your loss.
