The soenoid could be bad, but if they buzz, it is usually because of a low battery or bad connection. You could try putting power to the small post on the solenoid, but be sure the transmission is in park or neutral, as this should cause the engine to spin. If it just buzzes, it is still a low battery or bad connection. To ckeck for a bad ground you could connect a jumper cable from the negative battery cable to the engine, if the engine then spins with the key, it would indicate a bad ground. A new solenoid should be less than $20.00, should that be the the problem...I hope this helps.

99 mustang won't start it only do 1 click. If it


Battery good, cables good, all connections clean and tight, no corrosion on battery terminals?
Try to determine if click is from solenoid on the starter or starter relay. Turn the headlights on and watch them while someone turns the key to start. If they get dim, probably the starter-have it tested-even new ones are sometimes bad. If lights don't dim, you will need to check the start circuit. Check for power on the small wire to starter solenoid when key is held in start. If no power there, work back towards the ignition switch. Check the neutral safety switch-should have power in and power out when key held in crank. The ignition switch will have a start wire out of the switch going to the neutral safety switch. It should have power with key in start, the only time the start wire will have power.
Post back with what you find-good luck.

Car won't turn over


Check its connector, must be good tight.
If it's good tight but still do the same>>then it's corrosion. Replace new one.

2001 GMC jimmy won't start. New starter, new


If the starter motor is turning the problem may be a broken flywheel tooth. If starter is not engaging the solenoid may be bad or not hooked up but that seems unlikely since starter was replaced. The problem's down there. If solenoid not clicking then problem may be further back.

Clunk or click? A click would be the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter. Recheck battery and starter connections for tightness. If they are good, it is possible you got a defective starter and should have it tested. If it is good, make sure you have power at the solenoid wire (small purple wire, I think) when key is held in the crank position.
Aside from that, are your battery cables in good condition?

My truck won't start. It won't turn over... only clicking noise.. even with a jump. the headlights work but very dimly.. orange lights next to headlights flash on and off dimly consistently as well...


When a battery is very low, even a jump won't work because the battery takes too much out of the jump. Take the battery out and have it charged up.
If it won't take a charge, get a new one.
But also make sure the battery terminals and cable ends are shiny and greased.

If you really want to be sure, put a voltmeter on it.
A good battery should be 12.5.
When you crank it should go down to about 10.
If it goes below 9, either the battery is too low, or the starter is draining too much.
If it never goes below 11, it is not draining enough, and the solenoid is probably bad.
If when you stop cranking, it comes back up to over 11, then the battery is good, so the starter is probably bad.

Starter clicking replaced and still doing same thing


Check your battery to make sure it has enough power and cranking amps to turn that starter and flywheel.  Make sure that your cables are good and move them around to see if that helps. Sometimes those cables can break and corrode inside the outer covering and you can't see it which makes it hard to diagnose. Clean your battery posts and cables. Also another thing you can try is starting in neutral or rolling your car back a few feet to allow it release some tension and hopefully free up allowing it to crank over easier. When you replaced the starter did you make sure to slide it in place and tighten it down good? Did you use shims to allow proper clearance room?...

1966 Mustang 289 V8 auto 2b new battery and solenoid-won't crank


Check the battery terminals. If they have become corroded you could be getting a bad connection. When the starter is engaged it creates such a power load at the connections that it will arc and loose power. Or, you could have a bad ground wire off the battery. Also check the positive cable leading down to the starter. Most of the mustangs had the battery cable leading to the starter between the engine and the exhaust manifold. Eventually they melt through and can cause a short. This would require replacing the cable. Good luck.
