I have a 1983 GMC jimmy 5.7 (HEI) and I went to start it and it will not turn over

Turn your lights on and then try to crank the motor...If your lights go out, you have a bad connection(s) on your battery...If they stay on and dim, your starter is drawing current but not turning. If they stay the same intensity, your may need to check your starter relay as it is not putting the starter in the circuit. How long has it been since you last ran the truck? Try the same sequence as above but with the trans in neutral instead of park...could be your neutral start switch also.

No key switch can still use the electrical end but car will not turn over but you can pull start it

first you have to make sure full batt power available, second turn the key (if any) to on position . third jump contacts on the starter motor to create power circulation and hear if starter o selonoid works.

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

07 chevy impala wont start ain't the battery wont even start when being jump

starter pinion may be jammed hit on it with a block of wood when some else tries to start it...this will usually only work one time but it"ll prove that you have a bad starter solenoid. make sure also that you try nuetrla position when trying to start you might have a bad neutral saftey switch.
you can also make up a jumper with aligator clips and hook one end up to the pos battery and the other to the 12v position of the start will key is on this way if it starts then youll know that its a wiring issue maybe ignition switch.

Changed starter on the Van however it still won't start. Battery is charged and when you turn the key on it clicks once. Is there a relay switch or something between the battery/Key/starter?

You have a starter relay that could be bad, follow your + cable from the battery, it should lead to a small relay that looks like what is on a riding mower. If this gets cracked on the inside or the contacts are bad, this will prevent starting and a clicking sound will occur. If it's broke completely, it won't click.

I have a 1994 that will not start. The battery is charged , and I can jump across the starter terminals and it turns over , but it will not turn over with the key. It will start by jumping the terminals ,...

check the neutral safety switch located on top of the transmission.
put the transmission to neutral to see if it start.
if it start in neutral then the switch is bad

2000 Pontiac Sunfire wont start

Its likely that you have either a bad ignition switch or a bad neutral safety switch (if stickshift, clutch switch) Try starting in neutral...if it starts, change neutral switch (jump across clutch switch, check starting in neutral with your foot on the brake) Ignition switch is on top of steering column under dash.

91 datona wont start

That relay you are talking about is your starter solenoid.  If your car is a manual, put it in neutral with teh ebrake on.  Turn the key to the on position.  Take a screwdriver and jump the 2 bigger posts.  If your starter engages, then your solenoid is shot.  They are pretty cheap and easy to fix.  Keep the Dodge's alive!!  PLease rate!
