My 2000 Chevy Lumina will not start. Doesn't give off that clicking sound that you hear when the starter is going out, nor was the starter giving me any warnings that it was going out, to me it started very strongly with no hesitation at all in starting the vehicle. I tried jumping the battery, and that didn't take, the battery appears to be very strong too, lights, everything works. Tried jumping the starter, and for a second it sounded like it maybe wanted to turn over, but that was it, it was giving that electrical current sound so to me seemed like the starter had some charge in it. Another thing too, is that when attempting to start it, it feels and looks like how when you attempt to start your car in drive, or in reverse. Where it just does nothing, this seemed to resemble that. I even tried tinkering with it like trying to start it in drive, or reverse etc thinking that maybe the gears were out of alignment, but nope that didn't work either. I was thinking that it was probably the starter, but I hate to go get a starter put it in, and then it turns out that isn't the issue. Any thoughts, comments, suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
have the same problem?
