Try holding key in start position while moving shifter slowly through all gears to see if you get a click or start at all. Safety neutral switch/back-up lights on transmission were known to cause that problem.

Now you are describing 2 different problems... If you have nothing I doubt the battery is dead but would check for a safety switch problem. If it clicks or turns over slowly then we need to be looking at a bad connection or other issues... Please describe your problem better to let us help you solve it

Lights work, radio works battery is new and fully charged but when I try to start it...nothing. No starter clicking..nothing


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter. You should have battery voltage on the large cable, and power on the small wire when you turn the key switch to start.
There is a clutch switch or neutral safety switch in the circuit between the starter and the key switch that could have failed.

I bought a brand new starter and new battery in the last 7 days. When I try to start my car, the engine does not engage, instead, all I get is a loud rapid clicking noise. Does anyone know what it mig


I guess I will start by saying we can only guess because we are not there in person.
My first question would be, where is the noise coming from ?
If it is the starter, you could have missing teeth on the flywheel and nothing for the starter to engage.
Depending on the make model and year, if you have a starter relay other than the one on the starter it could be faulty.
As long as you have 12 volts and a couple hundred amps of power at the starter post, and a good ground, the starter should turn. If the neutral safety switch was faulty you would get nothing when you turn the key. And the alternator would not come into play until after the engine starts.
Can you turn the engine by hand ?
Can you jump the starter with a screwdriver or jumper wire and make it turn ?

Car won't start


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch. Also check the ground connections.

Car won't start. its got a hot battery. Turn key, dash lights up but does nothing,not even click. got under car to ckeck starter used screwdriver on selonoid and it turned over fine. turn key switch...


If your car rolls over when you short the selonoid then the possibilities are limited.
The most likely is your neutral safety switch
the others are the ignition switch or damaged wiring.

Nothing happens when you turn on the lawn mower key for craftsman mower model 917 272072. I put a new battery in the mower, and new switch and a new solenoid switch but the mower don't make any noise when...


Check your seat, drive safety switches. Can you turn the engine with jumper cables attached to the starter? It won't start, but should turn over, one of your safety switches is not working.

Ignition problem


Check the starter fuse. Could have popped, and would explain the trouble.
