My Intrepid won't start. Just one click and then a hum. Battery new. What might it be?


it sounds like ur starter to me one way to find out for sure before u take it off is to jack up car and on the starter there is a battery cable (big post) ignition wire (small post) carefully stick a small screwdriver between the two making contact with both and nothing else. If starter is good it will turn over... but it really does sound as if the starter is bad from what you said

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.

Engine doesn't even turn over but I have power


Check the fuse box for the ignition fuse. If it is not blown you need to get a volt meter and see if power is getting to the starter when the key is turned (watch for moving parts). If power at the starter then the starter is bad. No power at the starter then its the ignition itself, or a starter solenoid.

The humming noise you hear is the fuel pump. It is probably your starter soleniod. If you hear an electric click under the dash near the steering column when you turn the key then the ignition switch is ok and your starter needs to be replaced. This happened to me last month.

2000 audi s3 is noisy on ignition but settles quickly


when you turn your key and you only hear humming noise, the problem will most likely be that the starter is not engaging the fly wheel, its turning but is not sliding forward to do its job. have the starter check. and after some time it any how gets engaged and the noise settles down. also get the ignition switch and ignition module checked. ---------- This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution if helped.thank you for using fixya.

Car will only start with starter fluid


seems to be the injectors are not opening, the only hting controling the injectors is the ignition module and the computer but computers not very often go bad so i will recomed you to replace the ignition module, to see if it fix it. but before that check all the fuses
