The ground to the starter is the body or the chassis of the engine. So if there is 12 volt to the starter then you must take the current test of the voltage. Use a test lamp to check if not the solenoid or the starter brushes are bad.

Went to get gas the other day and got back in it and it wont start turn key and it does nothing, we tried jumping it and nothing.. had to tow it home


It won't crank? Have you tried rapping the starter with a hammer-a light tap- to see if it will work? If that works, the starter is going out and needs replaced. Alternatively, take the starter off and have it tested for free at a parts store.

2005 honda civic VP bad starter replaced still engine not turning over


Check the ground connection on the battery and the frame. Make.sure the battery posts are clean and free from corrosion. Most likely it's the ground on the frame

An update I have a 96 chevy lumina I had the Battery and alternator tested they are fine the battery is about 3 months old. It was starting Up fine. After lettting it sit for 2 days now my car won't start....


Hope your engine has not froze up your waterpump, if it has then it will strip all your teeth off of your timing belt, IF YOUR LUCKY.If your coolent has frozen solid, it will push out freeze plugs and possibly bust your engine block.. I will assume the starter cranks your engine, if your starter don't work, ill go ahead and post the "my starter don't work" document I created. If it cranks but don't start, then I would test the fuel pressure, if that is fine, then its igniton related, such as coil or igniton module, possibly MAP sensor.

MY STARTER DON'T WORK
NOTE: some vehicles have the relay and starter mounted together as 1 unit. Sometimes the starter relay and starter are seperate. When I refer to "relay" it could also mean the starter and relay as 1 unit.
Note: "starter switch" is not to be confused with "key switch", although sometimes they are all one unit. The starter switch is usually mounted on the steering column and actuated by a metal rod. On units that are all one unit, the keyswitch/starter switch (both one unit) will have to be replaced. (this is a rare problem, so don't get worried just yet)

1. Check battery voltage, should be between 12.5-14.5 volts. if low voltage replace or charge battery, and try to start car, if it don't crank with new or charged battery, move on.

2. Check connections on the starter relay, even the small one coming from your starter switch. if loose or corroded, clean with a brush and reconnect them. Try to start your car. Did it start? if not, Move on

3. Well now we know the connections aren't the problem. How about a click? did you hear one? If a click is heard, go to #4, if nothing is heard, go to #5

4. Well at least the relay is clicking, but nothing else is going on. The relay is working, so the starter must be bad. Replace the starter and start your car!

5. Humm, connections aren't the problem, maybe the relay is bad, replace your relay with a new one. Move on

6. Now we have a new relay, with clean and tight connections. Start your car. Does it start? If yes, then HORRAY! we fixed it. Does it click? If so then goto #7, If it don't click, then goto #8

7. So here we have a new relay, with good connections that will click when trying to start the car, but nothing else happens. Starter is faulty, replace the starter, and off you go, see ya!

8. So here we have a new relay, with good connections, but it still won't click when we try to start our car. This means that your starter switch is faulty. Replace starter switch and try to start your car. Vroom! finally done with this car problem!

List of shortcuts: if you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the relay and apply +12v to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. You can actually hook up a starter button this way. If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken.

2000 blazer will not start did a manifold gasket job, replaced plugs, wires, distributor cap,new fuel filter. Cranked and ran really good for 2 days then will not crank


Check you starter, maybe you have a loose connection. Try to give direct power to the starter and see what's happening. I nothing happens, you have a bad starter.

98 grand marquis that will not start. i know its not the battery or starter, plus i check to see if its getting gas and has a spark. my whole steering wheel assembly has been replaced i wonder if that has...


It likely is the place to start looking. Does the engine crank over but wont start, or nothing from the starter? If nothing, check for power on the small wire at the starter solenoid, when key is held in crank position. If no power, diagnose start wire from ignition switch to the starter solenoid. If power is at the small wire, but no starter action, recheck battery and starter connections, or have the starter tested.
If the starter works, but car won't run, recheck for spark at the sparkplugs. Have the fuel pressure tested-pressure is critical for injectors to work. If you still can't find the problem, your car needs shop time for diagnosis.

Nissan Altima 2000 Manual. Recently had remote starter installed and was working fine for a few days. This morning I remote started the vehicle and when I came out car was off. Try starting the car up...


the remote starter is not going to damage the starter, but if wired wrong it could damage the wiring or fuses, or run the battery down from a short.

2002 saturn sl2 will not start for no apparant reason then 1 to 3 days later starts, while trying it 2-3 times a day. Towed to a garage both times and they could find nothing wrong.


Why couldn't they find anything wrong? The main componants should be tested first. (the starter,srarter relay,any related wiring, ignition switch, and all connections at battery, relay, fuse, starter, and eng. block). Good luck.

1991 Nissan 240SX starter will not turn!


If you've applied 12VDC to the solenoid and it does nothing, not even click, then the solenoid is toast!
