No, the starter won’t turn over, it won’t do anything

are you at the vehicle now?? do you have a test light or a voltmeter?

I’m texting for my husband and he could not stay home at this time, he’s just wanting to find out why the car does this.... we have seen problems like this on the same car and wondered if this was common with a solution...?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I can tell you the dash lights come on and that’s it. But if we wait 4 or more hours it will start again, just can’t run to the store and turn it off or you’re stuck...

it it common fo the starter to cause the problem, they can get a bad spot in the armature, and cause it no to turn over, a test light or a volt meter can diagnose this, when it dead, you need to check for power at the small wire at the starter, when cranking, if it has power, and it does not turn over, it is a bad starter.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The car will start, but if you turn it off and try to restart it, it won’t start again until it has sat for 4 or more hours...

Hi, this is Ron, a different expert.

You have a bad connection either at a ground or power lead. Lok for corrosion, and once you find that bad connection, clean it real good and be sure it's tight.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

I don’t get credit for assisting you until you rate me
My goal is to assist you in the repair of your vehicle by
supplying you with well educated information. I may not
always have the exact fix you wanted to hear, but my job is
to get you on the right track, which I always do. I can’t hear,
see, smell or touch your vehicle from where I’m at, so your
understanding of that is greatly appreciated. There are no
magical answers, but I do my best to guide you in the right
direction.
