On comment by ap1913 sounds like he has a battey on connection issue and on gr8ful if it is a nissan pick up check on a starter relay, common to go out, but on guest and krmill2002 sounds like a starter might be the issue.

Battery terminal wires are catching on fire. What do I do?


The short answer is the cable got too hot. Why is another matter.
The cable could be touching a metal object and shorting to ground, or the starter could be pulling too many amps thru the cable.

I try to start my Lincoln town car and when I turn the ignition on the electrical battery system goes down but won't turn over. I have installed a new car battery


You would need to take a meter or test light and check for power after the battery. You could have a bad connection inside one of the cables.
There should be 12 volts at the battery post and at the cable end on the starter. Also be sure and check the ground connections.

2001 GMC jimmy won't start. New starter, new


If the starter motor is turning the problem may be a broken flywheel tooth. If starter is not engaging the solenoid may be bad or not hooked up but that seems unlikely since starter was replaced. The problem's down there. If solenoid not clicking then problem may be further back.

Had a new starter put in and now it won't start . It won't make no sound


Is the fusible link at the positive battery cable not burnt and melted?To check positive battery from battery to starter,get a meter and test positive end at starter and ground other end,should get a reading of 12.6 or near to be good.

1997 town & country won't start...new starter & plugs + wires, I have changes fuses and the engine still willl now turn...can you solve?


now turn??? or will not turn? makes a diffrence...if the eigine turns over...but will not start...pull a plug wire off from a spark plug..take another spark plug(that you know is good).groung the plug on engine block...have some one turn the engine over(make sure you have no loose clothing that can get caught into belts or pullys and that yours hands are not near them either)check the plug for fire..if you have not fire the problem is an ignition module more than likely.If the engine is not turning over...check the connections to your battery..and make sure the battery is good as well..if connections are good and battery is good..you need to do the next step...which is to follow the cables to their destinations..the black (ground to the engine block or body ground) make sure its firmly connected and has clean contact..and is not broken.if this is ok...go to the other (red or positive cable)it will go to the starter. or starter solinoid .do the same with this one as the ground (check for good connection and not broken) if the wires are good and good connection...go to advance auto and they will check solinoid for you (free of charge) I hope I have been of some help to you :-)

Car won't start.Battery has full charge but just clicks when key is turned


Hi,
REmove battery cables and clean off all signs of corrosion. Re-install making sure you have tight connections. If still no starter crank, could be a bad starter, check voltage at starter large red wire post to ground on engine block. Should be same as battery voltage. If not , take starter out and to parts store will they will test it free, replace if nessesary.....Mike

86 fordtruck new starter tuck want turn over


Go back and recheck the wiring to starter first. I suspect it's either the starter solenoid or a bad ground to starter if you are sure you are getting power to the starter. Make sure the ground is getting good contact. If you can put the ground cable to one of the mounting bolts on the starter to make better contact insted of the engine block. Clean the area before installing the ground. Be sure you disconnect the ground cable from the battery before you start work on the starter. Hope this will help you.

I have a 1992 Toyota MR2, one evening I cam out to go get a movie, went to start the car and all that happened was the starter started clicking rapidly. I turned the ignition switch off and the starter...


This sound like a more common issue than we in the mr2 community would like to see. The cars are old and the ground wires tend to wear out. But normally the gas pedal cable becomes the place were it grounds out and start a fire. get a cheap ground wire kit for the engine compartment as well as put a few on the battery. Also check existing ground wires. Hope this helps!
