My car won't turn over

Hello. There are many reasons why a car wont turn over. A bad starter, a bad connection at the battery or starter, low battery voltage, bad starter relay are just a few. Because of the limited amount of information and all of the variables involved in a no start diagnosis, I suggest seeking help from a qualified mechanic to inspect the no start condition with your vehicle.
