Could be a few things, Starter relay may be stuck, the starter bendix may be gummed up, or even a faulty starter selenoid..

Nissan almera 2002 when iturn key ignition light stays on but nothing happens

if you can get to the starter, give it a whack with a hammer on a rear corner of the bigger cylinder and see if it cranks. if it does, it will need to be replaced or rebuilt.

Car wont start when hot, starter wont kick in

Not sure how you could check the starter hot, but the main components are the battery, key switch, neutral safety switch, and starter. A mechanic would check for voltage at each connection.

1997 mitsu eclipse. When Iturn the key I hear nothing. As I hold a few seconds the starter starts to crank. Should I replace the starter?

could very well be the starter motor ,but check the ignition switch with a multi meter or a light first as the fault could also be in the ignition switch and i would isolate the fault first before paying out for unecessary parts

You can kick start it but your electric starter won't kick it in ?
Have you check your main fuse to the starter, starter relay and all realted wirings?
You have fried the starter motor my friend when you keep trying to turn it over until the motor stops.
Well, from what you've described, you started motor have gone to brink, better get a new starter.

2001 Cavalier will not turn over. All the lights are on but it just wont start. We tried to boost it and still wont go.

i had that problem and it was the pass-lock reset the code i had to turn the ignition to right before it cranked for 10mins turn it off for 6sec (not removing the key) and repeat that two more times and it cranked like a champ, had to do it a few more times with in the month but it eventually stopped.

My truck wont start battery is brand new all gueges work when i turn the key but it wont crank?

If you look down where the starter is you will see al little round selinoid with to things sticking out that look like screws and have nuts and wires going to them. Take a good gauge wire and jump across them. If the starter does not kick in or spin over then your starter is bad. If it does kick over then there is a good chance that the ignition switch has gone bad.
