Customer Question

I have a 94 chrysler lebaron that won't start at all.. had to get it towed to my house. When I turn the key over it I hear a buzzing from my starter relay and my brake light and engine light come on. No attempt to start
JA: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature? Soon. I'm trying to find the right Chrysler Mechanic for you right now. As soon as they are ready, I will let you know. What year is your Lebaron?
Customer: The car is in park and I have also tried it in neutral. Idk about wheel lock and it's a 1994
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am trying to fix myself. I have used a test light on the wires of the started relay and I have found the yellow to be making the buzzing sound. Which is the ignition wire. I have had the starter tested. I tried switching out the ignition switch and still the same problem
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Not right no we

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
power to the starter. I have followed my ignition wire because it's the one making it buzz and I tried turning it over whIle testing it and when I turn the key to the crank position it goes off at the relay

sounds like the starter has failed

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I took the starter out and went and got it checked yesterday and it passes so that's not it. That's also why I decided to ask on here

is the motor seized does it turn over by hand?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The motor shouldn't be seized by any means.. It has 116000 miles on it just had oil changed about a month ago. No idea how to turn it over by hand.. I don't see how it would just seize up out of no where either..

have you tested for power to the starter with a test light or a volt meter? because even if its a good starter t may be a switch or power issue .

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I have a good connection to the starter with both positive and negative. When I go to crank over the engine my brake light comes on and my clock on the radio also goes off
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 11 months ago.

does the starter click or sound like its engaging?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The buzzing is comin from the relay.. nothing happens besides that and the brake light coming on and the radio turning off

can you verify if the starter is getting power to the trigger wire on the solenoid when the key is put in the crank position?
