Does it turn over but not start or not turn over at all? I would disconnect the battery for atleast ten minutes. If the latter I would also check battery voltage. It should be greater than 12 volts. Then tighten and clean all battery connections. Also tighten and clean the negative battery connections on the frame and motor also.


Need more info. Could be Plugs and wires. If it is old enough.


Check the connection to the battery. Had a similar situation where the bolt connecting the wires to the battery was too short, and the car would just randomly not start. (or the connection may just have become loose.)
