Do a draw test on the starter hook a voltmeter to your batt and hit the starter button if it drops to2or3 volts then comes back up when button is released you need a starter it should only drop to about 6 volts under load

Cant get my 2001 mitsubishi mirage to turn over lights come on batt is good

If the batt tests good, I'd check the solenoid. Bypass the solenoid by giving power directly to the starter motor. If the Engine turns over, your have a bad solenoid. If not you have a bad starter motor.

I hit the starter switch on my yzf600r thundercat and it wont turn over all i hear is a buzz from under the seat?

Check battery terminals to ensure they are tight with good connection (maybe clean corrosion) if that does fix it permanently, do a load test on your battery to check condition. had a similar issue with my Honda ST1300 - loose battery terminal! (I'm guessing the buzz is the starter motor solenoid- enough power to throw that in but not to turn the starter)

I tried to start my 94Sunbird-I heard clicking for a few seconds & then nothing. Battery is good & it couldn't be jump started. How can I find out if it's the starter or something else? help?

one easy way is to have someone hold key in crank ing position,then another person needs to hit or tap the starer housing itself.if engine begins to crank intermittently or ur cliking noise turns into small jolts of the starter trying to crank then u can bet its the strtr motor. u do need a charged batt for this test. also chek ur battery grounds they can dramatically affect starter operation if we have a voltage drop anywhere in starter circuit .chek batt cables r tight on batt posts, loose batt cables on battery will also give u clicking noise w no starter operation

Batt. and alt. only last 6 months or so then won't start car

Ok, if the cranking amps is like 70AMPs or 100 AMPS as measured by an inductive ammeter on the battery cable when starting, and it does NOT start, then it's a bad starter.

However, if it does start, that's normal.

On a car that old, I would check that the battery cable ends are squeaky clean, wire brushed, or even replaced if cleaning is not possible.

Usually, a battery that is tested good will be good under a load test.

Also, try to use an ammeter to find out if there is a drain on the battery above .2 A while it sits there turned off. This could lead to a solution if you investigate where a short may be.

Get a clicking sound when I try to start my 1995 Nissan Pathfinder

Check ALL your connections. Take each Batt terminal off and scrape them or buy a Batt. brush from parts store/cheap 7 bucks. If you can jump it it may be the Batt. has just gone.. Clicking means you have a bad connection or the Batt is shot.

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.

Car will sometimes only make a clicking sound,battery is good,can it be the starter solenoid not engaging the starter? Or is it a relay in the starter itself?

try connect a wire directly to solenoid, then touch the other end to the batt. positive, if the engines kick your starter is good if not, your carbon brushes inside the starter motor jam or need replacement.

Have new proper batt.Have new starter celenoid,new

Remove spark plug and attempt to crank. If it turns faster (without compression) it may be valve adjustment. If it still turns over slowly with plug out check battery ground for tightness to mower body. If the ground is good check the starter by removing battery and atttaching jumper cables to pos and neg battery terminals first, then the pos jumper to starter terminal (where red wire attaches). Then touch the neg jumper to a good engine ground (I use shroud bolt). Be careful as this last connection will cause some arcing. If it still cranks slowly with the plug out, it is probably the starter.
