Not starting

When I turn the key the solenoid buzzes. I replaced the starter, solenoid, coil, wires, and the battery. What is up? Thanks!

Manual or Automatic? If Automatic, it could be a bad neutral lock out switch. I'm wondering if the buzz you are hearing is actually the fuel pump kicking on?

Also, check your grounds.

It's an automatic. The fuel pump is a mechanical one. It started today but now the alternator won't keep it running....

Remove the alt and have it tested at Auto Zone or another parts shop in your town. If it's a faulty alt, they'll be able to tell you. If it checks out good, then we move onto the next step in figuring this out....

If your alternator is good check the wiring coming off of the solenoid to the alternator. someone could have done a crappy splice job that needs to be repaired
