You could have a bad cell in the battery and its not putting out enough Amps to turn the starter. Take the battery out and have it tested.

I have a 2002 isuzu axiom, all it does is click once when you turn the key. So i replaced the starter, same thing. It has an alarm system it should be factory. Will that make my car not start


make sure the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and the battery is fully charged , check there is battery voltage at the big starter terminal with the starter switch engaged, if voltage is ok starter at fault , no voltage solenoid or switch at fault.

1998 massey 1250 diesel tractor has a new battery but will not turn over. When you turn the key everything go off and does not turn the starter


Question ,was it running before this happened

If so ,try and turn the crank shaft ,if it turns then the problem is either a battery cable , check connections at battery and starter and also the ground .

If this fails , take a pair of jumper cables hook to battery with out battery cables hooked up .

Then hook ground from jumper cables to frame and positive to large stud on starter solinoid , take screw driver touch large post of starter to small post on starter solenoid if it just clicks or does nothing replace starter.

Be very careful these are large amperage's your working with ,and can be dangerous ! if not comfortable with this method then just take starter out and have it tested in town.

Saturn jumper cables hooked up backwards


Try charging the battery more. Even though your lights may come one, starting a vehicle requires massive amounts of amperage from the batter. It's possible that your jumper cables aren't a thick enough guage to supply enough power as well. Sometimes the vehicle you're jumping from might not have enough power to support your vehicle's starting power requirements.

Turn key, no start, dash dead, but intermittent symptons


First I would look for voltage drop of both end of battery terminal.not a look or seem tight . you have to do it (voltage drop) and terminal at alternator.
now does alternator charging. take voltage of battery
if the problem occur have voltage of battery taken
like I read your problem it looks like wiring terminal ground and positive
the noise you hear is probably low voltage to a relay and the dropping voltage make the relay switch inside relay cycling noise click or buzz

Hi, I have a 2008 Pontiac G5 and I accidentally kept the lights on all day. Since I only have a positive (red) connection, I ground the negative connection to metal as well as the other car negative...


sounds like you are on the right track. Hook the jumper cables up to the dead car first. The red cable should go to the jumper terminal as you mentioned and a good place to hook up the black cable is the bolts on the strut tower.

then with the other car running hook up the red lead to the cars positive battery cable and then the negative to a good ground. Let the two cars sit for about 5 to ten minutes to give the dead battery a chance to charge.

Once the dead car is started let it idle with the lights turned off for at least 45 minute to an hour or drive it for the same amount of time with the light on (I assume you will be driving in the dark) or if its day time drive it for 30 to 40 minutes with the lights off. This should be enough time for the alternator to charge the dead battery.

Hi, wish you could help me, i take keys off the switch and unplug the batey by bearly tuching it with the cable terminal there is a small sparking gap betwen it, i have taken off all the fuses and relays...


It makes a clicking noise to when doing this? The newer cars will spark with everything turned off when hooking up the negative battery cable. There is a relay that it has to trip to disconnect the battery from the electrical system. Is it running the battery dead, or did you just notice this when installing a new battery?

I have a 2001 alero with a manual transmission. My battery is dead and I am wondering if I can jump start it or will the security system not allow it? I tied it once but it didnt start.


You should be able to jump start it, make sure that your battery cables are tightly connected to that battery. Then hook up that positive battery cable on the car that is running then the positive on the battery you are jump starting then hook up the negative cable on the car running then the negative to the dead car. If your connections are good when you hook up the last connection you should be able to see a little spark, and hear a hissing or popping noise. Leave it hooked up for at least 5 minutes before you try and crank it. If it then cranks and then just clicks you need a better connection between the jumper cables. If you get nothing it might be your starter if you are getting headlights, and a radio working. If nothing works there is a bad wire somewhere.

2003 S TYPE JAGUAR. DON'T DRIVE OFTEN BATTERY


You must charge the battery or you can use jumper cables from another battery to your battery to activate the electric trunk release, just be sure you hook up the jumper cables correctly ( cable to + on the battery and black to _ terminal of battery)and wear safety glasses when hooking up cables this should release the trunk. Also as a precaution always hook up + or red jumper cables wires first to prevent a arcing spark which is not terribly dangerous but this order in which to connect jumper cables is recommended.

NO CRANK. NO STEREO. NO CLOCK.


I think that your battery is dead. Try jump starting the car. Be careful that you hook the jumper cables correctly, red to positive[the + on the battery] black to negative[the- on the battery].

Starter button wont work,battery ok,everything else was fine


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try starting the bike with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the sidestand folded up. If it does start, then the interlocks (safety features) has to be checked.

If still a no go, determine if you hear a clicking sound. If yes, follow the big cable from the battery's + terminal. it would normally end up in the starter motor relay. Jumper the 2 big terminals while starting the bike. Expect a big spark hence jumper on the nuts, not on the threaded portion. if the starter motor spins, then it would be a defective syarter relay. If the motor stil fails to spin, then it would be a faulty starter motor; most likely the carbon brushes.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
