Check to see if your key has a chip in it and if it does it might be bad so if you have a spare key try it

I did not follow your english very well, but here is my comment.
The thick ground cable from the battery should be connected to a large bolt on the engine. It does not have to be connected to one of the starter bolts. The small wire from the negative post of the battery goes to a bolt on the fender or body.

Car wont start when hot, starter wont kick in

Not sure how you could check the starter hot, but the main components are the battery, key switch, neutral safety switch, and starter. A mechanic would check for voltage at each connection.

Starters getting really hot, why?

In simple terms, the starter gets hot from a high amount of voltage flowing thru it.
The why part is another thing.
Could be a bad connection between the starter and the battery including the ground. Could be a problem with the engine not wanting to turn over. For example, if you broke a timing belt the engine may lock up.

2000 pontiac bonneville wont start

It sounds like a bad connection somewhere, check the battery cable connections for corrosion and tightness, both ends. It could be the starter, starter solenoid, starter relay, neutral safety switch or ignition. Try moving the shift lever to the "N" position and see if that helps. When you say you have a dead key, do you mean you have no dash lights, (oil pressure light, battery light, things of that nature) no clicking, no nothing?

Put a new starter in my sons 86 camaro. still wont start, starter wont even try to turn over. Not sure on the wiring since no starter was there when he got it, but there are lights so i think i have it...

First thing is to get a multimeter. Make sure that the main wire going to the starter is hot. should have 12v all the time. Then the smaller wire on the solenoid should have 12v when you are cranking the engine. if its not then you found your problem and go from there.
Thank you,

I have a problem with my ford escort 1995 it wont start i replase the batery for a new one and i replase tht startmotor but stil wont start can some one help me please

It can only be either the ignition swith or a broken wire between ig switch and starter solenoid, if you take off the plastic bezel around switch I think the starter sol wire is white with red trace,.with a lengh of wire from the pos on battery, touch to starter wire at switch, if it then turns engine over, the fault is switch. If not check other end of starter wire where it connects to starter solenoid on starter

Will not turn over with new batterie

check battery voatage with a volt meter. After verifying 12v or better at starter, check power at starter cable terminal and verify ground at block is good. Then put volt meter across both battery terminals and try to start car. If battery voltage shows 9.5 or less while attempting to crank, change starter.
(make sure that there is 12v at the starter trigger wire with key in "start" before replacng)
(By battery "hot" you mean it's charged, not getting hot, correct?)

Hi! Pancho,
Looking at the brief outline of your problem it may be due to ignition switch failure? You obviously seem a competant Mechanic by all the jobs you have done already?
Have you tried Hot wiring the starter? (Take a insulated live+ wire from the battery and flash the solenoid)
Or if it is easier remove the block from behind the ignition switch and hot wire from there as I think it is this that's the fault.
A common problem on Vw's you twist the key all the way but the starter connection doesn't make so the solenoid on the starter doesn't get power.
Hope this FixYa'Z problem!
