Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


How old is your battery? You may want to open up the covers and see if you have a dry cell. If battery becomes weak, it will not have enough power to engage the starter. If it's a maint. free battery, you may want to replace it if over five years old. Also, check your battery connections for corrosion. Sometimes a good cleaning is all it takes. Have you replaced your starter relay? Should be located under the hood. Will it start if you place the shifter to N?
