Ok might be my wires but I turn the engine from the outside it doesn't turn is it locked?when I try to start it,it clicks and sometimes when I try to start in it turns real slow and clicks

Hi Nelly:
I'd bet a bag of popcorn against a weekend at Pizmo Beach that the battery needs replacing or the terminals or connections are corroded.
First step - dis-connect NEGATIVE battery terminal.
Second step - disconnect Positive battery terminal.
Third step - Put battery on charger for at least 3 hours, preferrably overnight..
Fourth - CLEAN all connectors and terminals
Fifth - Re-install battery Connect POSITIVE terminal first and Negative last.

Try to start. If No go, try using jumper cables.
If it starts, Go buy a new battery, and a bag of popcorn.

1999 Oldsmobile intrigue 3.5 LTR V6 Will Click Once, Wont Crank and Will Not Start.

I think probably not the starter, the battery is dying. The old alternator was possibly OK, but it never hurts to have a new one.

The behavior you describe is absolutely classic for a dying battery, which will not retain a charge. If you are sure for some reason that it is in fact OK, the only other answers are worn out contacts at the bottom of the solenoid, or a dead segment in the starter motor.

i get lost at once........
M/T or A/T what tranny ?
ok this post is about cranking speed.
it can only be a few things.
1: weak battery. try a spare, or jump it?
2: bad starter or solenoid.
3: bad starter cables.
4: bad starter key line. (small wire) and things upstream.
5:engine full of water in the cylnders. (hyrdalocked)
6: engine spark timing way off, and motor is trying to start backwards (distributor way off or just loose at base.
time it.

id need to hear this start, (or touch car) to answer correctly
as you might not know fixing cars is a hands on deal.

1993 yamaha vetura royal vmax import.starter motor drains the battery starter motor spins ok when not in the engine

If the starter motor spins but the motor does not turn over, the problem will be the starter clutch. You can buy many of the individual clutch parts at Babbitt's. If that doesn't work out, Google motorcycle salvage yamaha and see what you can find there. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

I have a 97 Toyota Avalon XLS that won't start, had a new battery installed, still makes clicking sound when I try to start. After a few tries it may or may not start.

hi it does sound like the starter is stuck, there could be a way to free it and find out for sure if it is u/s, what you have to do is, locate starter on your vehicle, depending on its location you can try tapping it with a small hammer or a long bar of sorts, at the same time get someone to turn the ignition at the same time while you are tapping the starter, this should free the solenoid and then thestarter should work, if it does, turn the motor off, and try again and see if it works if it does your ok, if not then try the above again, if you have to do it every time you turn the motor off then you will need to replace your starter....hope this helps please vote thanks

Pontoon wont start.The starter is good the cylonoid is good.the starter will come up and start to turn the flywheel and stop.I can hear the starter whine.but wont turn over.I have charged the new battery.

I have worked on many outboard motors. Since your motor almost starts, do these things:

1. install new spark plugs unless you are certain that the ones u are using are good.
2. Add a product called seafoam to the gas tank. Check to be sure but I recall that you add one ounce per gallon [this stuff is great].
3. At any auto parts store get a can of electrical connection spray. Spray all of your contact points.
4. Also get a can of starter fluid. Give the air intake a couple of short blasts and start the motor. if it runs real rough continue with the startere fluid until it runs smoothly.
5. Be sure that your battery cables are corrosion free where they slide over the battery terminals and that the connections are tight.

Enjoy your boat ride.

Car will not start

Try running a wire from the little terminal of the starter motor to the Positive on the battery , Disconnect the little wire thats on there first.No need to turn the key on as we are bypassing this.This should cause the starter to turn.Make sure that if its a manual that its in Neutral.
If the starter motor turns then the problem is either the relay or the ignition switch.Or if its an automatic Transmission it could be the inhibitor switch .
Hope this helps
