Starter problems 94 pontiac grand am

If you do nothing special to make it crank, I would say the problem is inside the starter motor.
It could have enough age and foreign matter inside to not make connection every time, especially when hot.
The only way to find out would be to run wires to the starter and have a meter ready to test it when it fails to work.

97 f250 ford truck wont start unless you short across the solenoid

A test light is better for basic testing(puts a load on the circuit).You should be able to get a light on the small solenoid wire when the key is turned to "start".If the light comes on,and shorting across the large terminals cranks the starter,the solenoid is the problem.(pretty common cause).

Car won't turn over randomly

When it will not crank, a mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the clutch safety switch, and the key switch.

Hi my 2006 Jeep Liberty won't start or turn over all keep hearing is this click sound when I turn the ignition , Plus I just replaced the battery .

Probably a starter. It sounds like the starter solenoid is working, but the starter motor is not energizing.

You could try this simple trick, but Im about 85% sure you have a bad starter.

Have a buddy help you push the vehicle in neutral for a short distance. When you get it moving at a walking pace, put the transmission in Drive, and let the vehicle come to a stop. You may hear a little clicking, but thats OK, it wont hurt anything. Put the transmission back in Park and try to start the engine again. Sometimes the starter gear gets stuck on the flywheel and it wont engage when you try to start the engine. This trick may move the flywheel a little so the starter can engage.

I have a 2003 kia sedona. My problem is that it seems to start fine in the morning but if it is hot out or I drive a short distance then turn it off it wont start. Could this be a oxygen sensor problem?

Not likely. 02 sensors will not cause a car to not start, run bad yes. Take it to an auto parts store and have the codes checked. Even if the light isn't on. This sounds like an electrical problem. But starters and fuel pumps will cause a no start after they are warm/ hot. Let me know. Randy

After i drive a short distance and stop it wont start for 3-4 it a switch 0r starter.i drive to store kill it come back out it wont start i have to keep turning key and set and wait awhile then it...

the starter relay isn't that hard to replace, and is probably your problem. If you can remove the starter and take it to autozone or similar, they can probably test it for you.
