Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Thank you Will let you know the outcome. If this doesn't work, what would my next step be? Replacing the starter? Am getting no noise at all from the clicking or turning, and past experience would tell me that it was something else...but will try the hammer this evening when I get home. Thank you again

2011 ford focus 1.8 clicking noise when start engine

Could be several problems - check the battery terminals to make sure they are clean. Next check the battery to see if it is fully charged. If both those items checked are OK then the next step is to check the starter.

Now the starter has a selenoid which engages and provides power to the starter motor when you turn the key to the start position.

If you only get a clicking noise then it could be the selenoid valve itself or the starter motor.. Some fords have the selenoid mounted on the firewall others are mounted on the starter motor itself.

So what you need to do next is bypass the selenoid valve and provide power directly to the starter - if the starter turns the engine over then the selenoid valve is the problem. If the starter motor doesn't turn the engine over then it's the starter motor and a replacement is necessary.

Hope this info helps.

I was doing a tune up on my 2000 Mustang 3.8 manual when I discovered my ignition coil module was cracked and needed replacement. After replacing it, I now can't get the engine to even turn over. I've...

the clicking is most likely your starter, first check all your grounds and battery cables, if it still does that try replacing your starter.

When I start my ignition it may click and not start it will then start on next try >I then hear a thumping noise from rear gate area I open rear gate and close and it stops and car runs fine

Clean all your cables to your starter and battery, sound like a starter solenoid issue, you may end up replacing. The thumb in the rear sounds like a bushing in the tail gate, I would inspect

98 lexus es300 does not start

Vijay, Number one: does it start with a jump? If so, then have the battery load tested. if it is good, look to replacing the starter.
If the battery is good after a recharge, and the load test is good, but it goes flat when parked- usually overnight- then it is the starter too.
Other than that, we get into open circuits, broken switches, etc. LOTSA troubleshooting on thise. Do the basics first, though. Usually you are golden with that. Let us know what your outcome is,

My wipers & wiper wash dont work

First and for most, check the fuse, that has probably burnt out. I am pretty sure that is the issue. Next if after finding fuse in panel , and replacing it, still don,t work, then next step would be checking washer/wiper motor. Thanks, please let me know, mike from fixya

Car will not start, just makes a whirring noise when I try to start it,the check engine light comes on.

There is most likely a problem with your starter -- if it is not grabbing the engine to turn it over when you turn the key, the starter motor will spin (giving you the whirring noise) but the engine will not move. First things first ... have someone turn the key, and hit your starter with a stick or something ... sometimes this will free up whatever part is not working proper5ly, and you won't have to replace your whole starter. If hitting your starter doesn't work ... and if you are good with cars, try replacing the starter and see if that helps.
Hopefully those will help ... if not, you will probably have to take the car to a mechanic to get it fixed, as there are several other parts that could be causing the issue -- but they are hard to get to and require some experience to know what you are looking for.

2002 mazda tribute, when I switch on the igition to start position the starter will not turn over and yes the battery cables are clean and tight. all the lights work and dash panle lights up as well, but...

Hi, if there is no clicking at all, the problem is usually the safety interlock or the starter relay. First, check the 40 amp crank/start fuse to make sure the power is available. Then try starting in neutral or put your foot on the brake and shift thru the gears while holding the key to start. If the interlock is maladjusted, the engine should crank. If this doesn't work, pull out the styarter relay and probe the relay socket with a 12 volt test light. Connect the test light clip to engine ground and probe the socket. There should be one hot terminal with the ignition off (from the start/crank fuse) and 2 hot terminals with the key turned to start (from ignition switch). Next, move the test light clip to battery positive and probe the socket again. With the key turned to start, there should be one terminal that lights the light brightly (interlock signal) and one that lights it dimly (starter solenoid). The outcome of these tests will point to the problem. Please let me know the outcome of these tests if you have not solved the problem by the point of finishing them.

Starter location 2003 Ford Excursion 7.3 L D

Look on the rear lower end of engine--Follow + battery cable.

If you can get leverage laying on your back to unbolt the old starter, slide under there. Your new starter should have step-by-step install directions. ALWAYS disconnect the battery when replacing a starter. Good Luck!

My 1997 honda accord wont start.....

Hi Matt

Follow the( + ) positive lead from the battery, to the starter, check the connections, if all OK, get someone to turn the ignition key to start, and give the starter a tap, on the selenoid, with a small hammer or a metal socket extension.

Good Luck !

Let me know the outcome !

Also a FixYa rating would be nice !
