first of all have the battery tested, but its probably a bad starter. test for power at the starter, if 12volts on both positive wires when in crank mode wiring is ok.have someone knock on the starter with a hammer while the key is held in crank mode, if car starts replace the starter. if not attempt to turn the crankshaft by using a socket and breaker bar, on the bolt that holds the crank pully on. if unable to move crankshaft replace the engine
To begin with you need a good battery @ 12Volts.
Check if there is spark at the spark plugs.remove one spark plug and earth it (spark plug body) and crank start and observe for the spark.
Check if fuel ( gas ) gets into the combustion chamber.
Try cranking it and thn remove the spark plugs and check if they are wet with gas.
Basically these are two things to check first.
Hope this helps!,
Let me know of the outcome and hope to be of help further..Thks.
YOUR PROBLEM is either Battery lower than 12volts or Starter Motor Jamed in or burnt out ,or battery lead loose on battery, or on the engine block (Black wire is earth) bolt could have come loose on engine,,
To try ,turn on lights, turn to start if lights go out then Battery flat or no good ,,if lights stay on when key turned on nopower to starter .
Let me know the out come of it Ron
go directly to the starter and see if you have power ( 12volts) at the main cable and 12volts at the trigger wire with the key turned to the start position. If you have both, likely the starter has failed. If no power at the trigger, you may need to look at large underhood fuses and check ignition and neutral safety switches as well.
Make sure car is cold. Battery must be fully charge. Make sure all battery connections and to starter and engine/body are clean and tight. Have someone cranks the car as you check for cranking power to the starter solenoid;it is the smaller wire on the solenoid which you may need to remove. Do this test at least ten times using a 12volts test light. If power on every crank, it definitely sound like starter acting up. Keep me informed.
if it will not crank have you checked all your fuses and relays? there should be a crank fuse and a starter relay. is the relay functioning propperly. next check at your starter yould should have a larger wire that is hot or has voltage on it at all times directly from the battery. there should be another smaller wire that comes from the ignition and at the keys crank position you should get 12volts on this wire this is what energizes your solenoid on the starter. not sure if you have already checked this hope it helps
