So you hear the starter clicking or no noise at all.if it is clicking then you may have a bad spot in the starter,or the starter solenoid may be bad.if you use a test light there is a large wire that is feed directly from the battery all the time you should have power on it.there is a small wire next to it that only gets power when you turn the key to the start position.if you have someone try to start the car and you check for power at this wire it should light up the test light it should be as bright as the larger wire when lite.if you have power to both wires then every thing is working in the system up to this point.again while trying to start bang on the starter if it turns over then you need a starter motor.it takes more voltage to turn over an engine than it takes to operate other systems on the car.

My 2002 malibu ls wont start it will turn over but wont fire my check engine light is on but that in no other lights on no window no power locks nothen how do i fix it


If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, check fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Go from there.
We can also check circuits for power windows.

Did you check for power in and out of the headlight switch ?
You should have power on the red and orange wires going into the switch and yellow going out to the dimmer switch.

Something possibly has gone wrong with the power steering system. Make sure the belt is in place and not too loose. Also, check to make sure the power steering reservoir is full of fluid.

Sputtering then stopped running and wont turn over.


Wont turn over are you sure as wont start is differant than wont run
Wont start could be Battery/starter/or engine siezed.
Wont run is not the same,,, that could be lacking power /low on oil/water/ Fuel/or even engine lacking power like down on compression which is all the above plus more ....
So check it out let us know again. Ron
