Q: Car will not crank

asked by on

Car want crank, its cold but battery works.

My car has 20000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: This may potentially be related to a faulty...

This may potentially be related to a faulty starter relay. This is a unit that directs power from the battery to the starter solenoid which then engages the starter when you turn the key. When this is not working properly, you may notice intermittent starting problems as you describe. Generally, when this does fail, it does so very randomly and usually without warning other than intermittent starting. The power from the battery will still power other accessories such as radio, horn, etc., but you may not have any power to the starter. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and replace your starter relay.
