If the battery is good and you jump the starter she should run otherwise you may have a sensor issue, try to get a hold of a code reader and see if any codes have popped up..

08 Chevy Cobalt wont start. Battery is good.?


Generally speaking, if the starter was dead it would not jump start.
Sounds like the key switch or the neutral safety switch.
You would need to know if the starter has power when the key is in the start position.

low oil on some models will stop it from starting however I would say you have a fuel filter stoped up this happens sometimes when you run a car out of gas they pick up trash,

Have a1997 jeep wrangler that wont start changed ignition could it be my starter


Yes it could be the starter, it could be the battery if the engine doesn't turn over, it could be a grounded power line to the starter. Even if the battery is showing proper volts it may not have the amperage to turn the motor over, it could be the solenoid itself. I recommend you 1. try jumping the vehicle. If the engine cranks when jumped but not without a jump then replace your battery. If not I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle for all of the troubleshooting and isolating steps.

Wont turn over


The starter is most likely the problem,tap on the starter lightly with a hammer while trying to start the engine,dont get run over doing this it will take two people,if the engine starts,the starter needs replacing.
