Q: Q: no crank no start

No start it did but no crank

My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, thank you for writing in. A no-start condition is usually diagnosed starting with the battery. Typically the first thing to do is attempt to jump start the vehicle. If it starts, the the battery may not have been charged. You may also want to test it at home with a voltmeter, or have it tested at your local automotive parts store. If the battery tests negative, replace it and the vehicle should start.If this fails to start the vehicle, you want to turn your attention to the starter. Changes are with the age of the vehicle, the starter has simply failed. This is a relatively easy swap. For more help with diagnosing the no start condition and possibly replacing the starter, contact our service department.
