Q: Q: Engine not cranking.

asked by on

I cannot start my car. The engine does not turn over and it doesn't make any noise when attempting to crank.

The starter may be defective or the ignition switch may be the issue. The system would need to be checked by a qualified mechanic to trace the problem down.
