Hey , i have VW Polo 04/10/1995 1.4L petrol and the problem is when i`m turning the key to start the engine , ABS and handbrake lights turns on and the engine is not starting. Is it starter motor ? an


well if you push started the car I would park on a hill till you get the starter replaced. it could be a dirty connection or a bad wire going to the starter. you should check the ignition wire to make sure it has 12 volts to the starter soloniod. if it does then you can pull the starter and have it check and replace it if its bad.

1991 Lexus LS 400 ignition locked doesn't turn past ACC


First things first, if you can not turn the key lock past ACC you are not doing anything with the starter. The problem with the lock must be in the lock or the linkage connected to it.
The price for the starter may be fair depending on where it is coming from.
You have to be able to turn the key to the start position before anything happens with the starter.

2000 Corolla won't start.


See, the starter gets power from the battery it also gets power from the ignition switch. When you turn the key the solenoid closes and supplies power to the starter motor. So if you are hearing a click the solenoid is getting getting a signal from the ignition switch. Check for power from the solenoid to the starter motor. If it lights up that means power is being transferred to the motor and the motor is either bad if it doesn't turn the engine or the engine is locked up.

Ok so I bought a 94 Chrysler concorde... the guy told me you have to turn the key multiple times before it starts...the starter doesn't kick in until basically it wants to...lol he said the ignition...


You may be right. Sometimes a starter test doesn't reveal everything. But before you pull the starter, do this quick test. It should confirm if problem is the starter or the ignition switch. When the car won't crank over, pull the small wire off the starter solenoid (on the starter), and check if it has power when key is held in crank position. You need a helper to hold the key in crank. If the wire has power (use a testlight or meter to check for power), and the starter won't crank, pull the starter off for testing or replacement. But if there is no power on the wire when key is held in crank, then it confirms that power is not being transmitted from the switch to the starter. Not to say for sure it is the switch, could also be another part in the path from switch to solenoid (like the neutral safety switch). But more common for the ignition switch to go out first. Either replace the switch or continue testing your start circuit. Post back with results or for further help. Good luck.

Hyundai accent 2001 will not start all lights work radio works heater fan works battery in 3 months old when I turn the key all i hear is a humming sound for about 1 min. than nothing. weather has be


The humming would be the fuel pump coming on. It should only hum for a few seconds, then shut off.
Your problem is with the start circuit from the battery to the starter, or from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Check the connections at the starter (the big cable) for tightness.
Is the battery charged up enough to turn the engine over? Check by turning headlights on and observe while someone turns key to crank. If they dim a LOT, then either battery is too low, or the starter is bad and needs removing for testing. If brightness doesn't change, then the circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is likely not working. Check for 12 volts at the small wire to starter solenoid with key in cranking position. If you have power there, the solenoid may be bad. Remove starter for testing. If no power at solenoid in starting position, then either the ignition switch is bad or the neutral safety switch might be the problem, or the wiring from the switch to the starter solenoid is not passing current.
Good luck.

I have a 1988 ford mustang gt and when i turn the car on sometimes the starter wont disengage and it kills my battery


Find the starter solenoid near the battery. When the starter sticks on remove the small wire from the starter solenoid. If the starter stops the issue is in the ignition switch side of the circuit. If the starter continues to run with the small wire removed you have a bad solenoid. You can also try tapping the solenoid with the handle end of a screwdriver. If the starter stops when you tap it, replace it. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have a 2003 alero that keeps having starting issues. I've replaced both crank shaft sensors, the pcm, cam shaft sensor, catalytic converter, spark plugs, had a tune up, and replaced the battery since...


if fuel pump is working, and the pressure is ok! then check for a faulty Ignition switch,not the ignition lock and key, but the switch itself.

These are notorious for this and have the exact same symptoms. if fuel pump does not work, check relay in fuse box. hope this helps you! check the pump relay first. just swap the relay from another spot to see if this helps.
good-day! if all fails, go to store and buy a can of compressed air in a can and put staw in ignition and spray it good a few times this may help because on these cars they get dust in ignition, and it messes up the contacts. the same as you would use for cleaning keyboard dust- you can buy it at Best Buy, hardware stores etc)
- place the thin extension "straw" (that comes attached to the can) on the nozzle
- blow out the key hole (use at least half a can of the compressed air)
- soak the key in rubbing alcohol for few minutes
-dry the key.

Only starts occaisionally, power is to the solinoid, but the starter circuit doesn't energize. checked ignition and it seems to be oK


Connect an extra wire to the starter input of the starter motor. Connect a voltmeter to it and turn the ignition. If there's no voltage there or the voltage drops far below acceptable levels check the original wire. Alternatively use the new lead to start the engine.

My 2004 Pontiac Grand Am ignition switch all of a sudden with the key will not turn on or turn at all for that matter this has not happened before Why ?


It sounds like your telling us the key won't turn in the ignition anymore for some reason. If that is the case the problem is one or more of the tumblers in the ignition have fallen, if this is the case you will have to replace the ignition itself or at least the ignition core. If you mean the key turn but the vehicle doesn't start I would start by disabling the alarm system you installed to eliminate the starter kill switch as the source of the problem. Also, if this is the case try jumping the vehicle. If it turns over and starts with a jump your problem is the battery having a dead cell in it. It can have all the world but if you have a dead cell it doesn't have the amperage to turn the starter over.

My 2007 corolla won't start. When I turn the key in the ignition the starter makes a rapid clicking noise. I?ve tried putting the car in neutral and starting it that way, but had no luck. I?ve also tried...


1st check the main cable to the starter make sure it is clean and tight, disconnect battery first, after that there should be a small wire going to the starter jump that small connector to the main battery cable on the starter (IGNITION OFF) if it cranks you have a wiring or ignition switch problem if not Starter time just make sure you get a very good quality starter some cheap and even lifetime starters are so poorly made that even after you replace them you still have a problem only a bad noise coming from the new starter you just put in.
