It is very likely that you have an issue with your starter. If you have lights and other power electronics working in your vehicle but it will not turn over, this is a sign that the starter has failed or the starter is not getting any power from the battery. I would recommend having a qualified mechanic inspect your starting system to determine if the battery and starter are performing as they should be. If it is confirmed that the starter is faulty I would recommend having the starter replaced. If the starter is not getting power, you may have a wiring issue. If you would like assistance with this replacement of your starter, YourMechanic has experienced technicians who can come to your home or office.
