I changed my headlights and headlight connecter now the car wont start
My husband and I own an 08 Saturn Vue XE and we went to the auto parts store with no problem with the car. We changed out the headlights and the connecter right there in the parking lot and then the car would not start!! Starter is 2 months old as well as the alternator. Battery has enough juice in it so that's not the problem. What can it be? We have tried every thing to get it to reset but nothing is working. Please help!!!
Not enough information. What exactly happens when you try to start it?
Just clicks. Every light works.
Check for loose or corroded battery cables
Everything is tighter than Fort Knocks lol
Time to pullout the old voltage tester and start tracing voltage starting at the starter solenoid
A bad selinoid clicks but doesn't let starter work, if you get power and no start it's most likely the selinoid I agree with irodri
The cables can be corroded even if they are tight. Did you try a jump start?
selinoids are good. will not start with jump either. battery was tested and that's in working condition.
Then you have a bad starter
Can you actually hear the clicking noise on the starter itself? If you do and If you have voltage going to the small terminal at the solenoid but not from battery to starter, you will only hear a click, it means cables are corroded or loose from battery to starter. but if you verified voltage from battery to starter then replace starter.
