Car was driving and I turned it off and then tried to turn it on and it would not start. I tried boosting it and that did not work. Battery is good. Starter is not turning. I do not hear the click of the starter.

Do you
have the same problem?

If the battery is good and the starter is not turning the engine we need to see if the starter trigger wire is getting power. Here are the guides to help us see if there is power.

Someone told me it could it be the solenoid, or fuse? Or computer box? I will need to do some tests so I can find out, thanks for the guides.

Make sure the battery is good, check to make sure the connections are clean and tight.

Here are some guides to test and replace the battery if it is bad.

Make sure there is power to the starter. You may want to have it checked too.

I am no car expert, but I have this make and model. It did the same to me. I am reading on the internet that it this very common problem for this particular make and model. I did the tests on this page and found out the starter is bad. Here is what I installed from Amazon worked perfect.
