Check the electrical system from the battery ground (at the engine) to the battery.
chech the wires from the battery thru the solenoid to the starter. See if the starter will operate when it is "shorted" (touch a (large) wire from the battery + terminal to the starter post) be careful not to touch anything else. If it works this way you need a solenoid. If not, have the starter checked out.
There usually is some reason for a blown fuse.

y/n, if no charge it. you do know 1/2 dead battery runs HL ok but never a starter. so is not a valid test unless HD look DIM.
so learn to use a $10 voltmeter and all this is easy. stuff.
ok, battery is charged
did you try jumper cable jump starting it, if not why not?

so that to me means the cab is dead.
the dash lamps all out.

Is there a fuse that protects the tachometer and temperature gage?

wow not even saying what it dont do?
the back light dead or needles dead?
sure all loads on every car made has a fuse
(cept starter)
why not post the full symptoms of what works or not.
then ask how to diagnosis it.,
does car run, and shift ok, doe head lights work
do the warning lights work in the cluster, keyon, no start?

the 1996 suzuki has the only free service

chapter 8a-81

no the IG-coil fuse runs the tachometer (electrics )
if IG-coil blows, engine does cluster lamp test. dead.

the speedometer is not electric its cable driven
is the odometer dead? if yes the cable is dead.

key on , all cluster lamps must glow
or IG coil is blown fuse or battery dead, or main fuse in engine bay blown.

Opel /holden vectra. blown 30amp main fuse replaced now all electrics work except no click or life when one tries to start.

The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared.

Nissan Altama Starter Relay electrical problems or a fuse?

Double check the battery positive connection wiring carefully as it commonly has connection problems when the battery is changed.

My 1993 Honda Nighthawk 750 is suddenly electrically dead. The 30 amp fuse is O.K. All connestions are tight and the battery is good. Could it be the Magnetic Started switch connector?

Hi, Clyde before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

1991 ford ranger starter problems - Wouldn't turn over after spending the winter up till now sitting outside. Ran good till I parked it last fall. Today I tried to start it but all I got was a clicking...

sounds like your batery is dead, or your main fuse is blown, check to make sure all the wires are connected, put your old solenoid back in and charge your battery

Replaced A 60am Fuse ,Ran For Two Days. Car Died and now i have no electrial juice to the whole car. suspect fuseable link.

You may be correct about the fusible link. Replacing a blown fuse without finding and repairing the reason it blew only leads to more problems and possible severe damage to wiring harnesses. Fuses are NEVER the CAUSE of an electrical problem. Blown fuses are ALWAYS the RESULT of an electrical problem. I would recommend taking the vehicle to someone who has access to the wiring diagrams and the proper equipment necessary to repair your electrical system. A blown 60 Amp fuse is nothing to play with. That fuse gave up it's life to stop your vehicle from burning to the ground. Please don't make it die in fires are never pretty!

Car is dead when I try to start it. Replaced battery and had garage do compression checks on it.

Being that you don't hear the starter click would lean me towards the starter solenoid.

If you have a auto parts store in town, you can probably pull the starter off, and take it to them to test. (the solenoid is a separate piece from the starter).

Then it's time to bring out the 12v circuit tester.
Look to see where you have power going to, and where you don't have power going to.

It could be starter related, it could also be that your ignition switch has gone south. The circuit tester will tell you that by checking for power getting through the circuit.

There is also a thing called a fusible link. A fusible link acts like a BIG fuse, but it's just a piece of wire (it's off the battery post) if the ends on the fusible link have gone bad, it will act the same as a blown fuse, but the fusible link is still good. Here again, it's something that can be tested with a $5 circuit tester.

So, test the starter, test the solenoid, then start looking for electrics that "dead end".

Yes, the Cavaliers are good little cars. If it is running the 2.2 4cyl it's a pretty bullet proof motor. They used it in thousands of vehicles.
