Possible starter issue, try to lightly tap starter with hammer, be very cautious when doing so, you will damage starter if you hit it to hard, after tapping starter start car if that does not work another simple possibility is the steerwheel lock, with ignition on off possition turn steering wheel, listen for click, then turn key to start.

My 1962 Buick electra 225 wont start. When I turn the key the accesories come on but the engine wont start. it doesnt even try to start.


Sounds like the relay in the starting motor circuit has failed, or a starting motor/solenoid problem - have them checked. This can also be caused by a problem in the ignition switch.

Hi Petey.
Most probably you have a problem with the ignition switch on the steering wheel,or any bad earthing contact.

starter wont turn or engages the flext plate,flywheel and still wont turn engine over?if this is the case you have a seized up motor,but if it doesnt even click check signal wire from ignition switch for power when you turn the key to crank.if no power your ignition switch,park/neutral safety switch(clutch switch if manual trans) or wrongly installed wired could be the problem.

Check for bad grounds, start with the starter ground. Do you even get a click when trying to start? If not then the starter is getting no power and check your hot lead to the starter also. Make sure the battery terminals are cleaned well.

Did you check the button that you can accidently switch on the inside of the glove box? It controls the motor that opens the power back door.

MY 97 DODGE STRATUS WONT START, ITSGOT POWER AND WEN I TRY TO START IT I ONLY GET A CLICK NOISE, NOT THEDEAD BATTERY CLICKING NOISE JUST ONE CLICK AND THATS IT. I HAD STARTED IT TWENTY MINUTES PRIOR TO...


i believe if you remove the steering wheel upper and lower covers, there will be a button to push to allow the removal of the key..as for the no start, the battery light is on because of the alternator. Its faulty. the clicking sound could very well be the starter not having enough power reaching to turn it over again unless you put a power pack on it...try a brand new battery, test the alternator and removed the key..it is possible the the key not shutting off the way, is drawing power from the battery not allowing to start that way, causing what they call a "parasitic drain". charge battery, remove key. try that

1995 nissan pu wont start... everything turns on


check for power to the starter at the starter's connectors while you have someone turn the key. If there is power, change the starter. If not check your ignition switch, (manual trans)clutch pedal switch, and starter fuses/relays. Hopefully this helps

Ignition


Sounds like the battery is dead, you have just enough power to have the lights come on, but no cranking of the starter. Try putting the battery on a trickle charger, or hook up jumper cables to another car which is running. Let it run with the jumper cables connected for two mintues before you try and start your car.
