    I have trouble starting it and then it turns over. Recently, I have had to jump it to start it and after driving it will not hold the charge to restart. I cleaned the battery terminals and replaced a bad terminal post but still nothing seems to help.

I have a 2006 ford freestyle car will not start.All lights come on,radio works,heater blows,blinkers work,the remote device on the key chain to lock and unlock the car works.Tried 2 keys tried

What about your security system? It is a starter disable. If you remove starter relay and use jumper wire between terminals 30 and 87, the starter motor should crank. If you try that, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. If it cranks, the problem is on control side of relay, right side, in the diagram. Make sure battery has a full charge.

Car working fine, suddenly wont start

Be sure it is in fact the right gas cap. Often when you purchase from someone like bumper to bumper etc the parts people get the wrong info. I suggest you go direct to the dealership pickup a cap and see if that solves the problem.

My 2006 chevy trailblazer 2wd 6cyl wont start. makes clicking noise, then nothing lights/radio etc work but wont start what is it

You got a jump and it ran fine? It's your battery. The lights and radio are much easier for a battery to handle than spinning a car engine. Again, if all you needed was a jump, you have a bad battery.

Won't start, cleaned battery terminals, batt

Most likely it's either your selenoid or your starter. But before you buy one, have someone turn the key tro crank position while you tap the selenoid with the hammer. If it starts, you have a bad starter.

1991 cadillac eldorado, car wont turn over and makes clicking noises. How do I know if its the starter or a specific part on the starter going out? When you turn the key the headlights and dash lights,...

1st make sure your connections at battery and starter are clean and tight. Next pull the battery out and have a parts store check it's condition. Even though the lights and radio work, it may be too weak to crank the engine over. If the battery checks out ok, then you are probably correct, it's the starter. Check in this order though, so you don't waste $ on parts you don't need. You don't want to pull the starter out to find it was a weak battery, or a bad connection (dirty or loose connection would prevent jump start from working.)

Power loss when starting

I suggest you replace the starter motor.When any vehicle is sitting for that long a time the starter seizes.
