Why won't my car turn over?
I have a '92 Toyota Corolla. I went on a 7 month deployment and left the car sitting. When I got back
the car wouldn't turn over. I forgot to disconnect the battery and I didn't have a voltmeter handy to
check it. I attempted to jump the battery to no avail. I replaced the battery and still no luck. When I
turn the key I can hear a faint click, which initially suggested to me that the solenoid on the the starter
was engaging but the motor was not turning. I hooked a jumper up to the starter motor and touched the
battery and the starter motor is just fine. Is it my solenoid or is there a damaged wire between the
battery and the starter? I replaced the starter about 2 years ago.
check for corrosion and check ground connections. I would try to jump it with the new battery, I've gotten a number of bad batteries from parts stores. Multi-meter would be awesome in a situation like this, lol.
