Battery good, car won't start

Asked by Apr 19, 2016 at 02:28 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I went to crank my car this morning and nothing happened.  All the electronics come on as well as the lights.  There is no dimming when I try to start it.  I had the battery tested (not even a year old) and it came back reading good.  There is no click when I start it.  Nothing happens.  What should I check?  Thanks.

If all your connections are tight to the starter and your battery is good you probably need a tow truck and a good mechanic. It's impossible for us to trouble shoot something like this with no real information.

Thanks guys. It was the ignition switch and starter relay. I do have a good mechanic that I can trust. Those seem rare in my area.
