Have the battery tested to see if the battery is good. Check to make sure there isn't a broken side post on it, making a bad connection, by taking off both cables, and sticking a flat screw driver in the hole for the screw and prying sideways and down, if it's broken it will move the entire post inside the case or fall out. You can take the battery out of the car and take it to Autozone and ask them to charge and check it for you for free to see if it's bad, but they won't check the posts for you to see if they are broken, they will only do a load test on the battery to check to see if it's good or bad under a load like using the starter on it.... same kinda thing. If it's bad, replace it . if the post is loose or broken, replace the battery. make sure there is NO corrosion built up on the cable ends that connect to the battery, if you see white corrosion that is acid and needs to be removed entirely, you can help this with you a bottle of water mixed with baking soda to neutralize the acid in the corrosion and then taking a wire brush or flat screw driver and scraping it all off on both sides of the area and rinsing it really well with clean water, keep doing this til all or as much as it is gone as possible.

2004 volvo s40 deisel wont start.


connections at the starter or the starter itself. see that the engine can in fact turn over, that it has not seized. the starter has two connections, one big and one small. check that the small one is getting 12v when the key is turned to the start position. if it is, then the starter needs to be rebuilt or replaced

2002 gmc 1500 sierra starter clicks but wont turn over. Have checked fuses, charged battery, tried jump starting all it does is you can here solinoid click but starter wont turn. I did turn heater fan on...


Replace the starter, the solenoid cant engage the starter because it is locked up, hence the extreme voltage drop with the fan when you try to start it with the fan on.

Car wont start, replaced starter and still nothing


is the starter making a clicking sound when you use your key to the start position ? You have to have the hood up while you do this simple test to see if the starter is clicking over and trying to start the engine when you turn car key. If your starter is not turning over it might be a short somewhere in which you can use a multimeter to find the problem. hoope this helps

My tundra wont start but all the lights and radio


That might be a possibility. Asssuming when you say it wont start you mean it won't crank over. First check battery voltage at the battery with a dvm when you turn the key to the start position. Then check the voltage at the starter when you turn the key to the start position. If both readings are the same and you must have a reading of at least 12dcv. Try turning the ignition key to the on position( not the start) and jump the positive voltage from the starter to the solenoid terminal. The starter should crank over if the proper voltage is present.If the starter just clicks or just attemps to start. yes, you need to replace your starter

if the clicking is repeated with out you releasing the key then the battry is in need of charging or replacing, if its a one click each time then the starter motor is faulty.
