Your starter button is good. The starter spins when you bench test it. Take a piece of metal/wire and jump the solenoid terminals or just touch the battery cable to the starter cable together , if the starter works you need a new stater solenoid. If the starter is turning over but the engine is not, you need a new starter one way clutch and the gear it grabs inside the motor.

Tdi clicks on cold start


Sounds like a flat or faulty battery. Try getting a jump-start from another vehicle. The clicking is probably from the starter relay.
The relay operates with a click switching the power through to the starter motor. If the battery is low, the starter motor draws so much current that it effectively short circuits the starter relay which releases.
Now the starter motor is disconnected, there is enough current to re-operate the relay, another click, and the starter motor is reconnected and short circuits the relay again etc. This clicking continues until the battery runs completely flat or you stop turning your key.

No Turning of the engine: Starter tested~Good, Battery Tested~Good, Changed the Park/Neutral Switch, but still no response. When I turn the key, I get all the lights and sounds, but the motor will not even...


Change the actual ignition switch? Test light at starter signal wire while someone turns key to see if you have power at signal wire. Check all your grounds after that. Still nothing take steering column apart and change ignition switch .

My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it


Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer

Car doesnt want to start. all lights come on when in the on position however when I turn it to start nothing happens it dont even try to turn over it just clicks 2002 hyundai xg350


The starting system consists of:
  • starter motor
  • starter switch, part of the ignition switch
  • starter motor solenoid relay switch
  • starter solenoid
  • starter drive
When you turn your key to start your engine, it just clicks, right? If so, more than likely this is due to a bad battery. Even though your battery may appear to be fully charged, it may have a dead cell, or worse. If you get a jump, does the vehicle start? If so, replace your battery.

Possible sources of the problem if the engine does not crank or the relay clicks:
  1. Battery
  2. Starter motor
  3. Starter motor relay
  4. Ignition switch
  5. Damaged fuse
  6. Anti-theft system
  7. Circuitry

Starter engauges turnes slowly. new starter batt neg and poss cab


First you should check the ground cable and ensure good contact. Second make sure the battery is fuly charged (over night is best on a slow charger). It looked like you said a new battery so a good charge should fix it if it is the problem. I assume you have good connections on the parts you already changed. It is probably a bad starter (motor). You can remove it and have it tested. If it is good you might have an internal engine problem. Try turning the crankshaft. It should turn by pulling on the drive belts. Well it sounds like a bad starter.

Starter not turning after winter. battery was removed/charg


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If the starter motor will not turn, a few ideas to consider:
  • the starter motor is actually switched by the starter relay. The starter relay is switched by the start button;
  • on pressing the start button there would be an audible click, that would be the starter relay;
  • the starter relay will only work if the sidestand is down, the bike is in neutral and the engine switch is on. These are the interlocks/safeguards;
  • to locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the + terminal of the battery;
  • press on the start button, the starter relay should click;
  • if starter motor will not turn, jumper the two big terminals of the starter relay using a wrench. Do it on the nuts not on the threaded portion;
  • if the starter motor engages, then the starter relay is faulty;
  • if there is no click from the starter relay, either it is faulty or any of the interlocks is preventing it from working;
  • if there is click but the starter will not spin and then will spin when the terminals are jumped, then the contacts of the starter relay are faulty;
  • if even jumping the terminals, the starter motor will not turn, then it wold be a defective starter motor, most likely the carbon brushes.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Clicking noise when starting


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description could be any of 2 possibilities:
  • starter relay/solenoid; and/or
  • starter motor.
To determine which, jump the 2 bog terminals of the starter relay when starting the bike; if the motor turns, the relay/solenoid is defective; if the starter motor does not turn, the starter motor is defective (most likely the carbon brushes).

To determine the location of the starter relay/solenoid, follow the clicking sound and would look like the image below.

While the starter motor would look like this
