Delay in starter - Grand Cherokee Jeep Cars & Trucks

  • Anonymous May 04, 2009

    intermittent. Sometimes the car starts fine, sometimes there's a funny 'delay' before the the engine starts (no clicka-clicka, but all the electrical systems seem to work and voltage warning light a) works fine and b) isn't indicating anything). And sometimes, the starter just won't start (no clicka clicka, nothing under the hood). Then I sit for 10 minutes, and try again, and the car starts fine. 15 yo car. Maybe the passive security thing is the answer....

Put a test light on the starter ignition terminal,on the starter,if the test light lights up as soon as you turn the key to the start position,and the starter delays starting,check the voltage at the same spot,with a volt meter.If the voltage is lees than 12 volts,and then jumps to the 12 volts,after the delay,then replace the ignition switch.If the voltage is at 12 volts when the key is turned to start the car,and the delay occurs,replace the starter.

Delay in Start on 2000 Grand Cherokee Ltd 4.7 engine


To check the solenoid internal contact, you'd need to remove the starter and remove the solenoid cover. Inside you will find a brass wheel that contacts the positive battery lug. You can remove the wheel and reverse it and turn the lug 180 degrees, providing new contact surfaces. Seems that you've done just about everything else. You can also use a test light attaching it at different points to find where the actual delay is occurring. Normally security will allow cranking but will not allow starting.

When starting 1997 aspire in morning-delay in starting


Starter solenoid probably.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sequence of Operation

NOTE: An overrunning clutch in the drive assembly protects the starter motor (11002) from excessive speeds during the brief period before the driver releases the ignition switch (11572) from the START position (as the engine (6007) starts).

  1. The ignition switch is turned to the START position.
  1. The starter solenoid (11390) is energized, creating a magnetic field in the solenoid coil.
  1. The iron plunger core is drawn into the solenoid coil.
  1. A drive lever and pin (11067) connected to the drive assembly engages the starter drive (11350) to the flywheel ring gear.
  1. When the iron plunger core is all the way into the coil, its contact disc closes the circuit between the battery (10655) and the starter motor terminals.
  1. The current flows to the starter motor, and the starter drive cranks the flywheel (6375) and the crankshaft (6303).
  1. As current flows to the starter motor, the pull-in coil is bypassed.
  1. The hold-in coil keeps the starter drive engaged with the flywheel.
  1. The starter drive remains engaged until the ignition switch is released from the START position.
