I would lean more towards the solenoid, which is usually located on the passenger side of the vehicle, as I have had the same thing go on our truck and it costs about $30 for a new one from your dealer. If the starter is bad, which it also could be, then I would recommend getting another one from a junk yard which would save you some money

Visit www.car-parts.com to search for the part and nearest location. Let me know of anything else that you have questions on.

good luck

Hi,

Initially could be:

  1. ignition switch;
  2. starting solenoid;
  3. starter motor;
  4. alarm system/immobilizer.
A couple of questions pls:
  1. do you have access to a DVM or voltmeter;
  2. other than the battery was there any work/repair done on the car;
  3. any other indications, warning lights or anything out of the ordinary.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Check the starter, solenoid, or wires leading to the starter.

well u may have discharged the battery so many time that it may not be any good now. but if u have a known good battery in the car u can do a parisitic drain test u will need to disconnect the negative batery terminal and clamp ur amp meter leads between the neg terminal and batery post. make sure doors are closed and everything is off b4 u start. u want to have less then half and amp or 500 miliamps. start removing and replacing fuses until the amperage drops to withing specification then u have found ur problem circuit

I have a 98 acura cl it wont start ,not a sound , battery is good and starter is good, what can it be. I think it might be a relay or something cause the lights work fine but the windows wont roll down.


battery might have enough juice to crank but still has enogh for small lodes like lights.will it jump off or still nothing .if it jumps off drive it straight to the auto parts store , auto zone, advanced auto etc have them check to find out if battery or altenator, if it wont jump look for lose connetions to starter starters can abruptly **** out .especialy if you drive threw alot of big pudles if you pull the starter they can check it for free also

have your battery check first.ive never seen a battery that will last for 5 years.shelf life starts as soon as the acid is added to the battery.
