If you have already tried a new starter and had the same results,I would say,you need to replace the starter clutch.If you haven't tried a new starter yet,I would say,Try that first,It's a whole lot easier to replace than the starter clutch.

Please take time to rate this fixya.

My 2005 Lincon town car Will not start. When you turn the key there is a clicking sound but the motor does not turn over the clickingcome from the drivers side under the hood. Any suggestions

clicking sound is probably the solenoid. this usually happens with a bad spot in the armature of the starter motor. To test this, give the starter motor a couple of firm wacks with a medium hammer or mallet. Then try to start. If this works, you have a bad starter motor. It will work for a while until it stops on the bad spot again.

The error is a lens motor error. The lens is not able to properly move and the camera then gives the error message. Sometimes dirt can be stuck in the lens or it could just be a mechanical problem that needs repairs. If you point the camera lens toward the ceiling while turning it on this could help alleviate the problem. If you cannot do anything to get the camera to stay on you may need to contact Olympus for repairs.

1993 ford escort steering column locked and key will not operate

This probably isn't the solution, but are the wheels turned at an angle? Some times if the wheels are cut at an extreme angle when the key is turned off, their is rotational pressure on the stering wheel. That pressure may have the steering wheel lock in a bind. Try to turn the steering wheel to relieve this pressure as you are turning the key. Good luck.
