With no luck I hit the starter again and it sounded like the starter was spinning freell with no motor drag. After thatvsound I stopped. I let it sit for a minute and then hit the start button and nothing! All I could hear was a loud click from the right rear side. I called my dealer since it has another year warranty and he said it sounded like the starter relay. He has had several problems with the relays and actually stocks about 8 of them. After he addresses the starting issue, he is going to look into why it started and died. But first things first. According to my dealer, these relays have had several issues. Is this common or is it, like coil failure, a passing phase? It broke my heart to trailer it back to the dealer especially when my neighbors piece of shit sportster 883 was pulling away. ,I've heard about a few relay problems...But not many at all. What you are describing sounds more like a problem with the starter motor, or a worn gear leading from the starter to the sprag clutch (there appears to be 2). Or the sprag clutch itself. But that would be the first time I have ever heard of any problems there. Hopefully, its just the relay....We all know the Capo has her little electrical gremlins Good luck, and please keep us posted. ,,,

2005 pt cruiser all light work car won't start no click from starter all was good got to store tried to leave no start just like that

Might be the starter went out and needs to be replaced. Make sure the battery is fully charged, then you can use a test light on the small post on the starter solenoid, when someone else turns the key to the crank position, if you get 12v there and the starter does not operate it is a safe bet that the starter is your problem.

Today I went to turn on my car and it didn't crank

make sure the starter is tight and your battery cables are clean and tight if automatic try putting it in neutral if it starts you may have a bad neutral safety switch if it is a stick try push starting if it starts you may have a bad clutch switch also check for a starter relay if u have one try swaping with horn relay and see if it starts

Motor wont turn, but lights and radio come on

the starter may be going bad,if you can reach under the car in the front-if there is no plastic covers in the way,hit the starter a couple of times,the brushes may be going bad and the vibration will move the brushes inside the starter enough to work temperarily.if that helps then replace the starter.

Car not starting

Verify 12V at the starter (+) lead.

If there is NOT 12VDC - first check the cables - they may be frayed or damaged or improperly connected at battery or starter.

If there is 12V, and no click when trying to start - the solenoid is faulty. You can JUST replace the solenoid, but its worth your time and effort to replace the unit as a whole. (you have to remove the starter anyway).

If there is 12V, and a click when trying to start - the starter is faulty - Replace starter.

If there is 12V, and click and whine (like a motor spinning) when trying to start - starter gear has been stripped or broken off. - Replace starter.

If no 12V the starter relay is bad.

If relay is good - your problem lies in the ignition module, or key tumbler.

Turn ignition to crank and nothing happens??

find the starter or ignition relay and replace it... generally either on the fuse panel inside the car or the fuse panel located in the engine compartment.

Starter problems

well what you did there was start it but the fans still need the ignition switch to turn on all the electronics. for the starting problem, check the wiring from the battery to the relay. or even the actual ignition switch in the bars. see if the button is bad, that has been a small problem if the internal workings in the button get coroded or get miss aligned.
