    I have the same problem with mine. I have to try a few times to get it started. It acts like it wants to start, but keeps turning over and doesn't. Usually works on the second try though.

    I have a problem with my 2005 Chevy Equinox. For some reason, every 8 to 10 months, the battery begins to weaken to the point where it will not start the car. Everytime this happens, the CD player seems to have trouble shutting off. It buzzes and clicks and makes the same sound it makes when I insert a CD but it does it constantly for about 2 minutes. I'm wondering if the CD player is not properly shutting noff and therefore slowly draining the battery at night.

    Has anyone else out there had this problem?

    E-mail me a tbutler88@hotmail.com

    thanks TED

This problem happened to mine as well... I took it to a local garage and they did a throttle body service and fixed the problem, I asked what a throttle body service was and they said it was just spraying some cleaner into the throttle body while working the throttle was all it was.

Starter problems, Suggestions???


Starters tend to fail intermittently. Yes, if it started after a "whack", I woul suggest replacing your starter. Make sure all connections are tight and of course clean terminals and cables.

I have replaced battery and alternator ok but the problem is now when I shut the car off it won't start is it my starter? I let it sit and will sometimes start up easily and then it won't somtimes


lots of variables does it turn over and not start --does it click and not turn over or does it do nothing -----if nothing check connections and relays(over heating or going bad)---turn over no start --check fuel pump and relays /wiring------clicks --check starter possible solenoid going bad connection loose or damaged relay problem ---ignition switch problem

Will start sometimes and wont start sometimes. batt is good. do you think it is the starter? it doesnt do it all the time


If the starter rotates [ turn-over ] the engine, then it isn't the starter. If it dosen't turn-over all the time, then it could be the problem. Other items that will cause issues are the nutrual saftey switch,or the igntion switch.
The starter can be tested in the car, many autopart stores will do this for free.
