Car Trouble Symptoms

When the ignition key is turned ON the car won’t start, no sound at all when trying to start.

The reason why the car won't start no noise at all when starting

(1) The battery is dead.
(2) Battery Terminal is corroded.
(3) Bad Solenoid ( starter problem)

Car Troubleshooting

Do this simple test that can be done to determine if you have a battery-related problem.

Turn your ignition key to the point just before the engine starts to turn over. With the key in this position, look at the dashboard lights.

If the dash lights are out or extremely dim then it’s a battery-related problem.

If the dash lights are not out or extremely dim, the problem is a bad solenoid.

Now open the hood of your car and locate the battery, if you are having difficulty locating your car battery just refer to your car owner's manual for the location. Check the battery terminal for the presence of a cruddy substance(corrosion) in the terminal.

If there is no cruddy-like substance present in the battery terminal then the battery is dead and may need replacement.

If there is a cruddy-like substance in the battery terminal then the terminal is corroded.

Even though the battery may have enough charge, the corrosion on the battery cables is preventing the current from reaching the starter, if no current will flow to the starter, the starter will not function. This is the reason the car won’t start.

What to do?
If there is corrosion in the battery terminal
You need to remove the corrosion from the terminals. A wire brush is a good tool for doing this. You may also want to apply some baking soda and water to help dissolve it. Avoid getting the dissolved corrosion on your hands since it is an acid. Finally, after the battery terminals are clean, you may want to coat them with petroleum jelly to help prevent these deposits from forming in the future.

There are mainly two things that cause your car starting problems a battery problem or a bad solenoid. If the battery was not able to establish as the culprit, then the cause is probably a bad solenoid. The solenoid sort of turns the starter on which crank the engine to make it start. So, when the starter is not working, of course, the engine will not start.

Signs of a Bad Starter
The starting system cranks the engine. This starting system generally uses a DC motor that operates on electric energy from a battery. The motor rotates when the ignition switch is turned on (ST position). Read more: Signs of a Bad Starter

The solenoid functions just like a relay, and electro-magnetically breaks and makes a circuit through which current flows to the motor. It also functions to mesh the pinion with the ring gear.

When the ignition switch is turned back to the ON position, the solenoid electromagnet is demagnetized, and the plunger will return to its original position by the force of the return spring. Thus the pinion de-meshes with the ring gear and returns to its original position.

What to do?
In this case, the solenoid needs to be replaced. When the solenoid goes bad, it's probably a good idea to have the entire starter and solenoid unit replaced with a rebuilt one since it is cheaper than the new one or you may use replacement parts rather than the original parts if you are looking for cheaper parts.

Call various shops for the best price. Of course, though, you can do the job yourself if you like. Refer to a repair manual that covers this make and model for detailed instructions. If you cannot do the work you may seek the help of a mechanic to do the work for you but it entails cost. (see also Car Won't Start Clicking Noise
