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.

This happened to me. Turned out to be a broken wire from the alternator. I suspected the alternator at first but it wasn't that. Traced the 2 wires from the alternator to a connection plug and found a broken wire. Repaired and now all fine.

Clicking noise where ? under the hood in the engine compartment ,the starter , a relay in the fuse box , inside the vehicle etc.... Checking the battery , battery cables and connections , do the headlamps work ,are they bright ?
If the headlamps work and are bright then the battery an connections are Ok . If not bright ,voltage drop test the main battery cables an connections .
How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit
The starting system on your vehicle is different then this , a tipical starting . Your starter system is more complex ,when you turn the key to the start position it inputs a voltage signal to the BCM - body control module , The BCM then sends a message to the PCM - engine computer on the class 2 serial data communication network that start is requested . The PCM will then supply a ground to the control side of the start relay energizing the relay sending B+ voltage to the starter solenoid .
The vehicle dying on you could be any number of thing's ,and without testing we'd only be guessing . When electronic thing's heat up they tend to act like that , till they cool again .

Yesterday while driving my car shut off, steering wheel locked up and I had to try to steer it out of traffic. I then restarted it and it went but it happened a couple more times before going home. Now...

Well, I'm glad your O.K. You could have one of many problems going on, I would start with the simple, change your air filter. If you service your car regularly, thats probably not it, but ya never know, there could be something stuck in there. If that don't fix it, then there are many more things to look at, and you will probably want someone qualified to check it out for you, As I said before tho, It's definatly not dieing because of the steering fluid. Are there any smells when the car dies?

Plymouth voyager won't start

You need to voltage drop test the starter electrical circuit . Do you know how to use a DVOM- digital volt ohm meter ? Do you know what a wiring diagram is an how to read one , so you know what wires to test ?

I'm pretty sure this is because the starter died ????? Never assume , test don't guess ! And if you don't know how to test automotive electrical systems your best bet ,take it to someone who does .
Test the heavy positive cable to the starter , corrosion cause's unwanted resistance and a no start or slow crank . You test with voltage drop .
Starter Voltage Drop

Or you test the control side through the starter motor relay ! Do you know what a relay is ?
On this video he shows a horn relay but the starter motor relay works the same .
VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis

Find free wiring diagrams here Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size. Under system click on engine then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link . You will see the PCM - engine computer turns on the starter motor relay .
