Yor alternator could be faulty too, if your alternator is not deliverig the right amount of amps to your car battery then you have also a problem.This will not give enough power to your solenoid, to turn your starter in order to start your engine.

Either your starter is bad ( which it sounds like it soon will be) or the starting solenoid in the system is faulty ( which it most likely is right now). If that doesn't work, have a diagnostic run and repost with any new info.

What could be the problem with a 2006 chevy colorado that has ignition starting issues?


everything you mention indicates a failing starter motor. Pull it and have it bench tested by an accredited auto electrician as they can be repaired if the failure is not to bad.

2001 honda civic wont turn over, battery-starter-good, timing belt good, engine will turn by hand but when attempting to start it just clicks. Im leaning towards the ckp sensor


The crank sensor only comes into play while the engine is cranking or running to tell the computer where TDC is.
A no crank issue would be only the starting or security system.
Do you have battery power at the starter when the key is in the start position ? Are the battery cables clean and tight on both ends ?

2004 Kia Optima, 2.7 LX, its grinding when the key is turned? Any solutions?? I think it's the starter. It will not do anything but grind.


the starter pinion is grinding on the flywheel,
classic on all cars.
1: low battery voltage caused by 10 things. use a voltmeter 10-v minimum cranking, if not post actual voltage
2: starter pinion shaft seizing.
3: starter solenoid seiziing.
4: engine seized, turn over by hand at front of pulley ,is it ok?
6: damaged flywheel ring gear,
7: starter bolts loose causing it to jam due to tilt.
8: starter bad, shorted, or weak,

engine seized has many paths, even hydralocked, so i check that first. to avoid, total destruction of same.
i turn it over by hand with my big wrench. key off. in park or neutral if M/T

Turn my key to start car, 05 impala, and let go but sometimes sounds and acts like im still tryin to turn car over... What is this?


This is perfectly normal on 02 and up GM cars The starter will engage and release when the car's engine runs. If you let go of the switch before the engine runs, the vehicle will continue to start until the engine starts. Once the vehicle starts, even if you crank it again, it will not grind your starter because of the anti-grind feature built with that model. Do not worry my friend, your car is fine!

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

Starter continues to run even with the key off


You need to test the trigger wire on the starter to see if it is still getting power when the key is off, and the starter is cranking. The trigger wire is the small terminal on the starter that gets power with the key in the crank position. If the trigger wire has power with the key off the problem is in the electrical system, probably the ignition switch. If the trigger wire doesn't have power and the starter continues to crank, with the key off, the problem will be inside the starter.

1994 Buick Park Ave won't start


The security system will keep it from turning over on that model. You need to try a 30 minute theft learn. Follow these instructions closely. Try to start the car, then leave the key on for 10 min. Turn the key off, 2 or 3 seconds. Turn the key back on, do not try to start the car this time, leave the key on for 10 min. Turn the key off again, turn it back to run, do not try to start it again, leave it for 10 more minutes. Then turn it off, and then try to crank it. If it is a security problem and it is not the ignition damaged it will crank. Good Luck. Mike From Texas.

Having problems with turning over......


do you mean engine rolled over or cranked over and would not start?or is it that the starter would just click? or did starter sound like it was wineing and you had to keep on and off the key until it findley started? if any of your answers to thies questions is yes (except first question) its time for a new starter. as far as the grinding noise don't worry about it, that's what makes me believe its the starter. install new starter, problem solved.
