Question about Saturn Astra

3 Answers

2006 Saturn Astra will not start. Just clicks at carburetor not at the starter motor. We checked all fuses. We disconnected the battery. We tried the spare key. We tried jump starting it. Nothing works. The Spanner through car symbol is showing constantly.

    I am hoping there is something we can do ourselves without having to spend any money.

    turns out it was the battery!

  • brendon_beel Mar 27, 2011

    Hi, Thanks we had actually done that before I received your reply. You are right it was the battery.

  • brendon_beel Mar 27, 2011

    It turned out to just be the battery.

Hi, the clicking noise from the carburetor when you try to start your car means that you have a problem with the car battery. Try changing the car battery with another one and start the car again, it will definitely start......

There is no carburetor in the 2006 model, it's a fuel injected one.
The click you hear is made by the EGR valve - it opens during the startup procedure, that's normal. What's not normal is the fact that you don't hear the click of the starter's solenoid. To find out if it has failed you will have to activate it directly: put the contact on the key and then, with a small piece of thick wire, jump the 2 plots on it: the big plot, with the big cable, is the power one, directly connected to the battery; the small one, with the thin wire, is the command one, from the ignition key switch. If the engine doesn't turn even now then something is very wrong in there: take out the starter and test it separately - connect it directly to the battery with 2 thick cables (beware, it will rotate violently so attach it to a bench before that).
If the starter is good then the motor is defective - something has snapped in it and seized it. This will also explain the Failure light (the one with the spanner). To fix that you will have to take the car to a repair shop, the fault is too big to be fixed at home, with the tools in your shed. Be prepared for a stiff bill.

    If it's the battery then check the alternator, it w=could be on its way out and not properly charging it.

2003 Saturn ion won't start replaced starter battery is good clicks when I turn the key


http://ibb.co/imcorc

Battery has a full charge and battery connections all good on both ends not just at the battery? Click on the link, see the relay, unplug it, Use proper jumper between cavity terminals, u6 and v8 in the diagram, u6 in diagram is fuse protected and hot all the time, use a test light to check for voltage. That side of relay is the control side, has that arrowhead in diagram. The starter motor may crank the engine? This is just a test, if you try it, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. If it cranks with the jumper, but, not otherwise, the problem is on the control side of relay.
The clicking noise, can you tell if it is coming from fuse box or starter motor?

Hello, looking for starter location for a 2006 saturn vue 2.2l 4 cylinder.


If it's like every other 2.2 front wheel drive Saturn, it should be at the bottom front of the engine, away from the serpentine belt side.
Look under the car, right side. It should be fairly obvious .
Please disconnect the battery before attempting any removal.

My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it


Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer
