If the starter wont work, but will if you bypass / short the solenoid terminals together with a screwdriver, and it turns the starter, the solenoid is burnt out.

Ignition on, dash has lights, won't crank

Well, my first two "guesses" would be either your battery is nearly dead (but still enough juice to power dash lights), or possibly you have a bad ground wire, or bad ground wire connector, somewhere.

Have you verified that there is now power getting to the starter solenoid (i.e.: with a voltage meter)? Is there any clicking noise when you turn the key? Any other symptoms, and did something happen to it just prior to these symptoms.

Why my 2010 mks sometime want engage starter when the button is pushed.sit for awhile then it will start

Sounds like a classic symptom of a bad starter solenoid. If you can find the starter motor, you will likely see a smaller cylinder on the side of it. Follow the red positive battery cable away from the battery. That will be attached to the starter solenoid. It is likely you can also tap on the side of the cylinder with a small hammer, being careful not to hit the red cable!! Once you tap the cylinder, it will probably start as well. If this happens, it is VERY likely a bad solenoid.

sting, we dont have them here, so what country?
is this is 323 car? 1.3L engine, can you see the starter, have you attempted to even look ,yet?

just starter vague post.
is this just a question of how to replace a starter and not get an acid bath?
1: disconnect battery minus lug. first, always 1st,
2: gain access to starter (remove stuff, or read the FSM)
3: take of the 2 wires from starter solenoid.
4: remove the 2 bolts.
5 it falls out.

or did you mean :?
I have a bad starter, can I repair it,
sure you can 90% of time. (skills good)
but usually the parts add up to more that a rebuilt.
we can show the tests, all great books on starter repair cover this.
in a pinch ive even repaired a solenoid.
ask. for the tests. and steps.
but with zero symptoms , id be forced to show all tests. all steps.
why ask this,..?????

How do I replace the starter on a 2003 Hyundai Tiberon?

Follow the positive lead from your battery to the front side of the transmission,. The positive lead from the battery is connected to the solenoid of the starter.
I suggest that you disconnect the positive from the battery and clean the solenoid side of the lead and put it back on and try to start the vehicle before you remove the starter because if there is a bad connection there it will show the same symptoms of a bad starter solenoid.
if it still doesn't start then you will need to disconnect the battery and the wires from the solenoid of the starter. There will be 2 bolts holding the starter onto the transmission. you can see the two mounting bolt holes in the picture I provided below. once you get the two bolts out then it is just a matter of getting the starter out of the vehicle. I hope this helps you out... Good luck!

Will not start all of a sudden,out of nowhere,brand new battery. radio,headlights,dash lights all okay.I hear 1 click only when trying to start.No warning signs as far as starter goes. 85k 60 highway....

Sounds like you have a starter that has gone bad. If the single click is coming From the starter than for sure the starter is your problem. The single click is the solenoid working but power is not getting to the starter motor from the solenoid. Very common symptom on chrysler/jeep vehicles.

Possible starter going out on 95 Legacy

providing your battery cable connections are clean and tight, it is probably the solenoid (starter) thet is worn out... but check all your connections first.

Starter problem.

check to be sure you are getting a good connection on your battery check the hot wire from your battery to your starter .if all of this is alright .the problem is most likely your starter.the contacts in the starter solenoid will cause the this clicking sound.the contacts and contact piston are replaceable and some times you can clean them with a file and emery cloth and put it back together and may be just fine.but that just depends on what kind of condition they are in.

I believe the starter is going out or has.. It was starting but not every time  it clicks when i try to start it after i get it going it will run but if I turn it off I can get it  started...

The most likely cause of a "No Crank" condition is a bad starter solenoid. The symptom of its failure is the clicking sound you describe. The starter solenoid is a large coil that, most often, sits on top of the starter and engages the Bendix drive with the flywheel and sends power to the starter. If the internal coil goes bad, the solenoid won't engage the Bendix or turn the starter on.
