A good way to check your battery is to turn on all your lights. Try to start your car again, if all the lights dim or goes out. BATTERY!


From experience you can hava a brand new battery but still have a blown cell. When you put your key in the ignition and turn to where your acc lights come on can you hear anything? When you Try to start your car do you hear a " click " ? If so your starter may be stuck and wont engage. If you don't hear anything at all then your starter is operating at all. Get a shop book and locate the starter. It's usually on the back of the engine block and located on the fly wheel. After you find it tap on the back of it and try to start again. If it starts then replace that think. I would then get the battery and alty tested again, just to make sure they didn't cause this failure... PLEASE USE JACKSTANDS/RAMP and Wheel blocks I don't want you to die.

watch that video.. tell me what you think.. lemme know if you need more info

I am at work so I can't download anything? You just have to listen to the sounds man. This problem was driving me crazy until I tapped my starter.

thats a tough call man. you may need to just bring it to the shop. cause even if your starter was bad it would still turn over but if your turning the key and not getting anything but the radio is still turning on your not getting a spark.

have your coil packs checked. remember one thing there is three basic things need to run your car air,spark, and fuel.

does your check engine light stay on when the cars was running?
try taking your neg. battery cable off the battery for 1min and put it back on it will reset all your sensors.

and if you want you can go to your local autoparts store and get a spray i forget the name but you spray your starter while trying to start the car and if it is the start the car will start while your spraying but when you stop the car will die.

and another thing i dont know how old your car is but if your not getting anything at all your timing could be s**t and need to have that fixed.

It has to be your starter.

Can't be the alternator because the battery would still start the car even if the alternator was bad. As long as the battery is charged it would start (if the alternator was bad). And since you say the battery is new, it can't be that either (unless it's defective...but the radio and everything else works as you said).

So, it has to be the starter.

I didn't watch the video. But, when you turn the key you should only hear a click. If the car isn't even beginning to start/trying to turn over, that means it's the starter.

Not that major of a repair.

nah, if the starter was bad it wouldnt turn over...it would do exactly what its doing now! maybe a lil tick when he turns the key but thats about it as far as the car starting...

even if the starter were bad he'd atleast get a click or a serious of clicks.

but since everyone is so dead set on the starter start by checking the starter for a loose ground wire before you go out and buy a whole new starter.

i can be almost positive that its a loose connection somewhere start by checking that. check your battery cables also mainly the positive cable.

and everyone please save me the story about how you had the same problem and brought the car to a shop and thats what they said. cause its a good chance you got r*ped. :greetings10:


edit: also check your relays. do all this before you go to the shop.

shouldnt be jackin dudes thread. but possibly fuel filter. condensation built up somewhere under the hood might have a leaky vacuum hose.

have your fuel system cleaned it suppose to be done every 15k miles and make sure your air filter isnt dirty either if so change that.

but back on topic any luck with getting your car started bro?

Gilb my dude. When I had a faulty starter it do nothing. No spinning just a click from the ignition. After taking the starter out I noticed notches on the teeth and maybe that why I didn't hear it spin. It wont hurt for him to trouble shoot by tapping it and trying to start it again. It'll save him the money for a shop just to look at it.

it CANT be the fuel filter...if it was the fuel filter the car would atleast try to turn over or make some kindof engine noise...but from what hes saying and from the video...it sounds like the starter....

i went back and told him that, to check the starter ground wire or check his starter relay. its not making any noise at all so there is a possibility that the start of the problem is before the starter (no pun).

mainly starters go bad cause people cant get there car started first turn so they turn the key and hold it for a few seconds, but people dont realize your starter gets extremly hot when you hold the key for more than 3 seconds when it gets that hot teeth will start to bend and break.

and thats why i say check the ground wire and relay and even the battery cables since he just got a new battery.
