Generally, this problem is the sign of an undercharged battery. Take a multitester, which should cost less than ten bucks, see how many volts your battery is providing by testing across the poles, on the 20 volt DC range -- red to positive, black to negative. You should see at least 11.5 volts. If you are not reading that much, the battery will not provide enough power to start the motor but will just have enough power to make the starter solenoid click. If you have a battery charger, see if the battery will charge higher. If it will not, your battery must be replaced. As an extra test, when you have the new battery or the recharged battery hooked up, and the engine running, you can make the same test and you should see about 13.2 volts. If you don't get that much, your charging system, i.e., your alternator, is going bad. You can get an auto electric shop to test it and maybe rebuild it at a lower cost than buying a new one. BTW, two things. Batteries tend to go bad fairly quickly, so you could be good one day and next day have a weak battery. And, solenoids do go bad but only rarely.

Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits ? Do you know what a electrical wiring diagram is. Have a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? How about a automotive relay , do you know what it is an how it works ? Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model ,engine . Under system click on engine , then under subsystem click on starting. Click the search button ,then the blue link . You will see all the componets involved in starting the vehicle. ignition switch , starter range switch , starter relay , PCM -powertrain control module . When you turn the ignition switch to the start position it sends a voltage signal to the PCM , this tells the PCM start is requested , in turn the PCM energize's the starter relay . This will close contacts inside the relay allowing B+ voltage at pin 30 of the relay to go to the starter solenoid . engaging the starter . Checking fuse's an power an ground , testing relay control . . Videos on youtube for electrical testing.

1998 Sable will start and drive then after shutting it of won't start not even try to turn over for hours maybe a day then will start right up


When it won't start testing the electrical systems is the proper way to find a fix . Using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter and power flow diagrams . Using voltage drop testing !

Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Click on engine under system then under subsystem click on starting .Then click on the search button , then on the blue link . This is a wiring diagram of the starter electrical circuit. Do you know what ignition switch is ? the electrical part. , how about the starter relay , transmission range sensor ! There is one thing you can try , move gear selector to neutral an see if it starts then . If that does nothing ,check for B+ voltage going at the starter relay . Jumping pins 30 & 87 at the relay socket , where the relay plugs into . will cause the starter to engage an spin the engine . If you look on the bottom of the relay you will see four sets of numbers 30 & 87 - 30 should have B+ voltage , 87 goes to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . An 85 & 86 are the control side .86 at the relay socket comes from ignition switch through the trans range sensor to the starter relay coil ( electro magnet ) . Watch these videos too .

Aurora 4.0 im stumped checked starer relay and car still wont start clicking ssound comin from backseat jumped it whats wrong


What year vehicle ? The clicking sound you hear from bake seat is probably a relay ! There is a fuse / relay box under the back seat ! How did you check the starter relay ? Just pull it out an look at it ? Was it #36 START 1 Relay
-- Starter Solenoid and PCM in the under hood fuse / relay Box ?
This relay is computer energized - PCM supply's a ground to circuit 447 which energizes the relay sending voltage to the starter S terminal engaging the starter . Do you have a test light or a volt ohm meter ? If you pull out the starter relay an look on the bottom you will see some numbers , 85,86 an 30,87 . match them up to the holes they came out of . Check out this video on YouTube ,you can check for voltage an computer control . Is the SECRUITY light lit on the dash ?

Won't crank won't start


There are two starter relays in this vehicle. One is in the fuse box, the other right on the starter. Pull the fuse box starter relay. Check for battery voltage on two of the cavities in the socket when you turn the key to the START position. If you see that, then check for ground on one of the other two cavities. If you see all those readings, try swapping the starter relay with another one of the same size and type.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT wont start. Has new battery. Starter was taken off car and works. Relays and fuses are fine. Power cables cleaned. Driver information center dim. Headlights are on when key...


PNP park neutral safety switch . Try moving gear selector to neutral . If it starts the switch is bad .
Voltage drop test starter circuit .
fusible relay ??? Now thats funny ! It's just a relay , not fusible relay ! A fusible link is a kind of fuse ,will melt with a short circuit. TEST ,TEST DON'T GUESS and if you can't test ,take it to a qualified repair shop. How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit
Starter Voltage Drop
The computer has nothing to do with it .

http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Free wiring diagrams ! Suggest you view a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in the starter circuit . NO starter relay ! Enter vehicle info. under system click engine, then under subsystem click starting . You will when you turn the key to start it send's B+ voltage to the PNP switch ,from there it goes to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . Very simple . Get a volt meter an test B+ voltage .

98 GMC YUKON WILL NOT START AT TIMES NOT EVEN CRANK OVER...IT EITHER STARTS NORMALLY OR DOES NOTHING NOT EVEN CLICK LIKE NO POWER GETS TO STARTER EVENTUALLY IT WILL START.STARTER & SOLINOID IS...


COULD IT BE NUETRAL SAFETY SWITCH AND HOW DO i TEST IT . Try moving the gear selector to neutral an see if then it starts . If it does ,you need a transmission range switch ,for a automatic transmission . If it does the same in park an neutral , voltage drop test the main battery cablb an ground . How old are the battery cables ?

Looking at a wiring diagram i see testing can be done at the starter relay ,or where in plugs into the fuse/relay box .

Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click on charging system (has starting & charging under this subsystem ). Click the search button then the blue link.

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 .
