check engine light it wont start crank or even make any clicking sounds when

1 Answer


Check the battery and cables for a good connection, then power to the starter from both the battery and the crank wire at the starter when the key is turned to crank, if you have all of those then you have a bad starter. Sometimes tapping on it with a small hammer will jolt the brushes enough to get it started but that will only work a few time at most if it works at all.
