If you have power(from known good battery) to starter and car wont turn over you have a bad starter.You have to check the thin wire with a prob while somebody turning the ignition switch. It has to be power in wire while key in starting position. If no power there it could be: -starter relay -ignition switch -fuse.

Question Answered: How do you know if you need to replace the inner tie rod or the outer tie rod
December 05, 2011, 12:23 PM
You have to lift up the front of vehicle but you need a helper too. As your helper puts his hand on the whheel on 9 oclock and 3 oclack he forces the tire to turn to left and right just enough to feel ( move out )the slack. You place your hand on the outer joint then the inner joint and jou will feel the bad tie rod end. If the tie rod is severly worn you actually see it to move.
