1. Investigate the starter. Make sure the starter doesn’t have a loose connection. It’s easy to see the wires that connect to the starter motor, assuming you know what a starter motor looks like. If not, search Google Images for “car+starter+motor.” Now!
2. Check your fuses. While it’s understandable that you are about to blow a fuse by now, try having a little more patience. If your car has a fuse box which is associated with the starting system, you might want to make sure that the problem is not as simple as a blown fuse. You might want to do this before getting your hands dirty with step numbers 1 to 4. Oops, sorry!
3. Test the ignition coil. Use a multimeter that can measure impedance. In the absence of a multimeter tester, use your hands to feel if there is any current in the coil when the car is started. Really, a lot of people do this but I don’t recommend it.
4. Inspect the coil wires. Examine the coil wires and see if they are shorted or broken then use the multimeter tester to ensure their connectivity.
