If you can jump start your Lincoln...the battery must be low...(when running have it tested for free at your local auto parts store...the alternator controls the full charging of your battery when the motor is running...If you can not successfully jump start your Lincoln it points to definitely a defective battery, and the starter could be bad also...if your battery is fully charged, and the starter will not turn the motor over the battery connections or the starter is bad...Not a big swithch out...Hope this helps.

How do I fix a car it overheated and won't turn over and the only thing I hear when the keys is turned over is a light clicking but then stops. ?


The battery does have enough of a charge to make the starter "click", but not enough power to engage the starter.

First, try a set of jumper cables, to see it will start with a "known-good" battery.

Good battery, key will not engage starter, jumping starter will not engage drive


jumping across the solenoid will spin the starter but will not engage the pinion in the ring gear. Have a load test done on the battery as I suspect that there is a bad cell and you are not getting a full charge. If the battery is faulty then there is always enough power to turn on dash lights but nothing left to run the high current solenoid and starter.

All the lights work horn radio windows work but it wont try to start like the batters dead but its not i tryed to jump it but nothing happond


Remove the starter relay, check for power at terminal, continuity to starter solenoid, and one more thing-jump relay terminals until you get the clicking noise of the starter solenoid trying to engage. If you hear the click at the starter but still won't turn over, tap the starter solenoid two or three times lightly. Check for power at starter lug. Loose terminals at the battery or corrosion is also of importance.

626 1997 Mazda want crank


Start by making sure you have a good battery, or a good charge on the battery. locate the starter signal wire on the starter , usually the small wire, connect your test light. have a friend turn the key and see if test light lights up. if so, your starters bad, replace the starter and you should be good to go.

1997 Honda Accord, 4 cyl, auto trans. When I turn


The starter sit on top I belive on the passenger side above the transmission, have some one hold the key to start while you tap or even hit the starter some time it will crank over if it does replace it, not that big of a job. If it still dont start there a big wire that one comes from the battery and a small one that come from you ignition switch ( key ) jump those two wire's ( if stander transmission make sure you have it out of gear ) there should be voltage at big wire all the time, if it still dont crank over replace starter assembly.Hope this was very helpful.

Have a 99 sebring just changed battery and car wonk crank


Hi I am Vortash when you turn the key is there a sound from the engine a clicking noise this would be the pre engaged starter motor solenoid trying to engage if you do then the starter motor may be jammed or faulty or possibly has a bad earth check all your body earthing straps .. ( the lights would work as they dont take much drain but the amperage of the starter motor wouldnt ) .
If after checking the earths you dont hear this then I would suspect that the ignition switch is at fault and the starter motor contacts in the switch have burned out or the starter relay hope this is of help regards vortash

Motor not starting


Double check all of your ground wires from the battery to the engine and body. Also have the battery checked. Even if the starter was bad, the voltage while cranking should not drop down to 2 volts.
