Sounds like either a loose or dirty connection. If it is doing nothing when you turn the key it could be the nuetral safety switch.

First off is the vehicle even cranking (turning over)? you could have an issue with the starter or a bad cable to the starter. If it does crank over but not start you could have an ignition or fuel issue causing your complaint. The alternator won't come into play till after the vehicle is started.

If the vehicle isn't cranking then check to see if there is power going to the starter especially the "s" terminal which is the smaller gauge wire. If there is no power there then there could be an issue with the neutral safety switch or ignition switch.

Could be an issue with the neutral safety switch, which won't allow you to start the vehicle in gear. With the key in the start position and your foot on the brake shift the shift lever through all the gears and see if it starts. If it does the switch needs to be replaced.

If your jumping the solenoid and all your getting is clicking, with a fully charged battery, make sure the battery cables are clean at both ends and have good contact at the block on your ground cable. If that all checks out make sure the engine turns over by hand. Remove the fan belts and take a large ratchet and suitable socket and put it on the crankshaft bolt on the front of the engine and see if you can turn it clockwise. If not the engine is seized up and needs to be torn down.

I would recommend checking the voltage on your battery. If the voltage on the battery is correct you need to check the starter. Also, if you have an alarm or security system make sure it is turned off.

I don't have a battery tester so I do not know if the battery is fully charged. Is it smart to try to jump start the car?

How much will a starter motor cost?

Can you explain the screwdriver thing again? I am very inexperienced with cars.

My riding mower, which I'm using with a snow blade, won't start. Can I jump the battery with my car?

The car battery will work fine to jump the battery on your mower. The car battery is bigger and stronger, but the voltage is the same.

My car sputtered, died and now won't start, Do I need a new crankshaft position sensor?

Definitely are going to need spark plugs.

Coolant dripping on a sensor is also not good. You might just need a few minor repairs to correct this situation but it is something that needs to be evaluated first hand. I would suggest taking to your nearest repair facility employing certified ASE technicians and also specializing in foreign car repair.
