2009 Cube will not start

The good: brand new battery and starter

The bad: lights all come on and power gets to everything but it won't turn over at all

The ugly: All dashboard warning lights come on as the key goes to the on position and stay on. When I turn it to the ignition position, I hear a very faint clicking for less than a second, and then nothing. Lights stay on. Battery is pumping out 12.3 V. Ignition fuse is fine. Like I said, brand new starter motor installed two hours ago.

I'm at my wit's end. I'm going to dig out my code reader and see if the car is throwing any codes, but in the meantime, does anyone have any ideas?

It sounds like you have covered everything except the starter solenoid. Good luck in getting it started.

Thanks. Sadly, for next, a new solenoid comes with a new starter motor; it's an all in one package. That's what makes this so frustrating.

Is there any way that you can "bench test" the starter to make sure it actually works, Years ago I bought a rebuilt starter from Butler Auto that was defective.

It does sound like solenoid. Can you jump the terminals or bench test it?

I think this car has a starter relay. Also, there are fuses in a small black box near the battery.
Double check for tight clean battery connectors.

try checking the neutral safety switch, may need a replacement. Will the car start in a neutral position instead of park? Im assuming this is an automatic?
If the car starts in neutral then it is the neutral safety switch.
