Question about 1994 Plymouth Sundance
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. If you have a vehicle that will not crank or just clicks when you try to start it, there are a few different things you can check to get back on the road. First, if it is clicking, or just clicks a time or two, this usually means there is no power to the starter. You need to check your battery first. You need to test it and make sure the battery is good and able to hold a proper charge. You want to make sure your battery terminals and the battery post are cleaned very good. You can take a metal brush to the terminals and the battery post to clean them. Make sure the metal ends of the battery terminals are not cracked or damaged. They can prevent you from getting a good connection. You also want to inspect the wire that goes from the battery to the starter for damage. Once your at the starter, you want to make sure it is not caked with oil or other fluids.. If it is, it can prevent the starter from working. You want to make sure the starter is hooked up properly and the connection is not damaged or loose. Your starter may be bad. Try hitting the starter a few times. It may be enough to make it catch and start, just enough to get you home. Of course, it will need changed. If you ever work on the starter, make sure you unplug the battery before you do. It may be your starter solenoid that is the problem, so don't forget to check that as well. Now, if it is not clicking, you should check your ignition fuse first. If your inside lights are not working or your lights are flickering, this is a sign of a bad connection. Once again, you need to refer back to the battery. Many people don't know that if the battery is not giving off the full amount of power, chances are, the parts will not work correctly. Lastly, if the starter is not engaging the fly wheel, your car will not start as well. By learning what to check for when this happens, you can save time and money in the future. As always, thank you for reading and best wishes. Thanks for using FixYa.
