Question type: Maintenance & Repair

when turning to the on position everything lights up but the car wont even try to crank.
I dont think its the battery because the head lights still work, i dont know what else it
would be besides something with the starter or solenoid, can anyone help me with this?

fuel pump is going when in the on position, spark plugs are not burnt on the tips, would a bad solenoid make this problem or is it definatley a starter problem? the batterey is pretty much brand new and we tested it, its putting out 12v.

try crawling under the car and checking the connect point between the solenoid and the starter body my wire had rotted off there before once. which resulted in my getting a new starter this is most likely your culprit You can do the starter yourself but its a big job it requires there passenger side engine mount to be removed as well as the alternator. and so that you know there is one bolt in from the front and one bolt in from the back. i spent a day trying to figure that out when i changed mine thinking it was a broken bolt.
