Have the battery tested. Just because the lights come on does not mean that the battery has enough cranking amps to turn the engine over.

this can be 3 things, if it wont jump and batter is good.
bad connections at battery or starter.
1: bad starter.
2: bad (A/T shift switch) or bad M/T clutch switch.
3 bad ignition switch.
4: bad wire or connections end to and start system.

hot wire the starter solenoid, if car starts (cranks) then its 2 o 3.

Need to check all the battery cable connections to ensure they are clean and tight. If this does not solve the issue, the starter may be bad. Have someone try to start the car while you tap on starter with a hammer. Sometimes, that will free up the starter drive and start the car. Tap firmly, but not with excessive force.

Could be a whole gambit of problems

1) Check the HT system is good, contacts clean, good spark on the plugs.
2) Check the water temperature sensor.

My metro wont start at all with a new battery


I have had a similar problem which resulted from a worn starter motor. You say you put in a new battery not just charged the old one right? With my car, the engine would make a single click noise when i tried to start it. that was it. music played lights would go on but no engine. Check with your mechaninc if you think it might be the starter. I dont want you to buy a new one and realize your starter was not the problem

Saturn SC wont turn over


when it comes to DC electricity like on automobiles. DC current wants a really good connection. check and make sure the wires at the alternator you just installed are tight. check the tightness of the battery cable connections at the battery. check the tightness of the main cable that goes straight to the starter. small things like the dome lights ect.... will still work many times when the connection is not so good, but big current items like the starter need a good hard connection to work. sometimes when the connection is sub par, the starter will just make a clicking noise but wont turn over the engine.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire wont turn over


ok i had kinda the same problem. if your father or bf is decent with mechanics ask him to check any see if there is any spark if not tell him to check the cranksensor to c if there is an current going to it, also when u go to start the car is there a (theft system light that comes on in the dash and flashes if so, turn the key fully as if you were going to start the car but dont crank it and leave it be for about 15-20mins or until the light stops flashing. then turn the key off and try start again. the thing is that when u install a stereo into one of these cars theres a anti theft system that stops fuel from going to the injectors. thats why when u install a aftermarket stereo u are supose to get eh harness so that it doesnt engage the ats(anti theft system). and if there is no current going to the crank sensor cut the wire long enough to hood an extra wire to it and then hook it up to ignition fuse in the fuse box(inside the car) this will send a a current to the crank sensor so when u turn the key on it will start. this is only a temperary fix. just gives u enough time to pick up the money to bring the car to the garage and get it checked correctly. anything else just ask.
