Hi
Try to check these things first:
Check the fuel supply to your engine. If that's okay, check whether the electrical spark is getting to your spark plugs.
If still having issues please check this link http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/troubleshooting-a-car-that-wont-start.html

1999 Pontiac Sunfire 5 speed won't start. Replaced spark plugs and checked ignition coil (fine). Sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a "whining" noise. Please assist. Thank you!


Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.

2003 jeep grand cherokee will not turn over


Constant 12-volt power is applied through 40 A FUSE 8 in the power distribution center (PDC) to the engine starter motor relay and through 40A fuse 14 to the ignition switch. If the park/neutral position switch is connected to ground, turning the ignition switch to START causes 12 volts to pass through 10A fuse 31 in the junction block and the engine starter motor relay coil to close the relay and apply 12 volts to the starter. Any of the parts mentioned could be open or defective.

I pulled the starter,alternator & battery they all checked good and ity still wont turn over what could it be?


If you can hear the starter click or engage when you try to start . Either the battery has low voltage or the engine has seized. You can check the engine by putting a wrench on the crank pulley bolt and try to turn by hand.Make sure to disconnect the battery first. If the engine turns it's good. If the starter is making a loud grinding noise but does'nt turn the engine. It's your flywheel/flexplate. Also make sure your battery connections are clean and tight for proper voltage delivery. I'm not sure if your car would have a fuse or power relay for the starter,but it might be worth checking out. If you do not hear a click from the starter when you turn the key it could be a short in the ignition switch.Not the key tumbler,the electrical switch is behind the ignition key tumbler. Hope this helps. Other than this you may need a repair manual to trace the wiring of the starting system and fusable links.

The car want start i think its the key because someone tried to steal the car before


IF YOU SEE CAR SECURITY LIGHT ON.WHEN YOU TURN KEY TO THE START POSITION.NO STARTER NOISE.TURN THE IGNITION KEY IN SWITCH TO THE RUN POSITION FOR 10 MINUTES.IF SECURITY LIGHT IS OFF.TURN OFF IGNITION SWITCH FOR 5 SECONDS.THEN START ENGINE.IS IT STARTS OR NOT. YOUR SECURITY THEFT SYSTEM IS GOING BAD THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO REPLACE BODY CONTROL MODULE WITH NEW IGNITION KEYS AND LOCK CYLINDER AND SWITCH.THEY HAVE TO PROGRAM IT IN TO PCM SO CAR WILL START.MAKE SURE BATTERY IS GOOD IT HAS 12.5 VOLTS AND BATTERY CABLES CLEAN AND TIGHT.BECAUSE A BAD STARTER OR SOLENOID SWITCH AND WEAK BATTERY WILL CAUSE NO START UP.

The battery is good but there is no click or any noise when start


First, establish that there is 12v at the battery (with a volt meter) then remove terminal ends and clean contact surfaces. Check that there is 12v at the main starter terminal and 12v at the starter trigger wire with the key turned to the start positon. If not, check starter relay, neutral safety switch and ignition switch. Make sure battery ground wire on engine is also clean and secure.

New battery & still won't start. Won't even make a noise. DEAD!


sounds like you have a problem with either the ignition switch itself or the solenoid on the starter if you jump positive power to the small wire on your starter and it turns the starter then it would be your ignition switch if it does not turn it replace your starter

Wont start


is the earth cable giving a good engine and body contact.does your starter have two terminals and if so are they the right way around?is the battery any good?Is the engine able to be turned over by hand Make sure you have agood 12v supply to the starter solenoid when cranking the engine An engine test probe/light would be of a lot of use for you to do that test
