2002 LX 470 won't start

The battery seems fine as all panels display. The starter seems to be clicking away as is should (doesn't sound slow). But, it doesn't even try to turn over. Tried about 4 times waited a while and then started. Later doesn't seem to start at all. No fuel smell under hood during process.

    2000 470 that seems to not hold a charge.  Alternator is working, when jumpstarting it will hesitate then after a few tries it will turn over.  When it does turn over it does not act like a bad battery rather than a sticky starter, not certain what to check.  Also thought that the battery might be the wrong cca's

For 2002 LX470; after monthly starting failures each month, over seven month period. First, battery was replaced, then throttle assembly, then engine computer, then ignition module, then transmission, then problem was attributed to a cracked fuse module and entire module was replaced. Port for one of the fuses was supposedly cracked (although no final determination could be made because module is completely sealed and cannot be opened without destroying entire contents). Problem attributed to expansion/contraction in module that had crack, resulting in intermittent starting failures.

2011 hyundai sonata won't start. battery seems fine. loud clicking/knocking when i turn the key. would it be the starter?


Unusual for the starter to fail on a one year old car.
You are having it towed to a dealer for warranty repairs, right ?

Won't start


Switch on head lights or cabin light. If they doesn't come on or is weak, the battery is flat. Ensure that you switch off the lights.
With ignition switched on, assuming the lights on the instrument panel cames on and your immobiliser is deactivated, turn ignition to start. You should hear the solenoid at the starter making a click sound. If not, the battery is flat or the starter solenoid is faulty. If it does make a click sound, the battery could be too low to turn the starter or the starter is faulty. Assuming the immobiliser is working correctly, and the starter tries to turn the engine but it doesn't want to turn, the gasket could be blown and the cylinder filled with water, or the engine could be seized.
Hope it is not the last case. MarioCpt

My 2002 mazda protege lx refuses to start. The battery is fine, but the engine/stater makes no sound or attempt to start. What is the problem?Could it be a relay,the starter?


If your battery is known to be fine then you probably have a bad starter. You can pull it and take it to autozone and they will test it for free before you buy a new one.

My 2005 caravan won't start. When I turn the key I hear a clicking sound but it doesn't start. It worked fine earliar today.The battery is fine for now.


Possible causes are: 1. Loose or corroded battery cables. 2. Bad starter 3. Dead battery. Try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is holding the key in the start position. If it starts then replace the starter. Thanks

MY 2002 4runner won't start. It makes a clicking


I am working on my mother-in-law's 2002 4Runner right now. The problem is a common one for Toyota starters and is likely due to worn contacts in the starter itself. When you engage the starter by turning the key, the worn contacts are preventing enough current from getting to the starter bendix (this is the rod that engages the flywheel and makes the engine turn over. you can hear the starter spinning, but the gear on the starter bendix is not engaged with the flywheel. If you can remove the starter, it is likely you can buy new contacts from Toyota, or your local parts store. Or you can buy a new/refurbished starter from your parts store for less than $200 and you will get money back for giving them your old starter. The tricky part is getting the starter out, which is what I am working on right now.

2000 Lexus LX 470 won't start


put battery on charge for a at least a day if not two before you start interfering with with anything.Sounds like a flat battery or battery not holding enough reserve amperage power.

Auto seems to have trouble staring after setting for a while


Sounds like you may want a starter draw test performed, also you may have a basic draw test done, that will tell you if your car has excessive draw on the battery that is causing the slow cranking.
