Hello and welcome!

My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.

Expert:  Amedee replied 11 months ago.

Are you looking for possible causes or would you like me to walk you through this diagnoses?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Where do i start
Expert:  Amedee replied 11 months ago.

You need to start by checking battery voltage down at the starter on BOTH terminals with the key in the crank position. I suspect you have a low voltage condition. It is possible you have a bad connection at or after the battery. We will also need to check the voltage on the new battery as well.

Another possible cause would be a bad ground. The starter grounds itself through the engine block so if the engine block has a bad ground, the starter will not operate.

I am sorry sir, but I dont understand your reply..

I checked the battery voltage..its good i checked the cables cleaned and grounded�� still no start
Expert:  Amedee replied 11 months ago.

The only other possible cause would be a locked up engine.

What is the voltage at going to the starter with the key in the CRANK position?

Expert:  Amedee replied 11 months ago.

YES, it could be if there is no/low voltage to the starter.
