CAR WILL NOT START

2001 Mitsubishi Galant • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 150,000 miles

Car will not start, started I turned it off because I left something in the house and then it did not start. Tried to jump start but did nothing. When I turn the key nothing no click like starter just a hum sound.

You could have a bad starter I would start by having your battery tested also make sure your battery cables are clean and tight. Do you have a multimeter to do some testing?

I will have battery tested. Do not have a multimeter. Will also clean and tighten cables. Thank You

Keep me posted if it's not the battery or cable's you will need a multimeter to test voltage reading at the starter. That's easier then pulling the starter and having it tested. You can get a multimeter pretty cheap.

Keep me posted would have been a lot easier to check with a multimeter though.
