You can jump across the celonoid on the starter. If the engine turns over then your problem is either the celonoid or the starter switch.

SOURCE: 1990 ford f-150 nothing happens when ignition is turned on

Solenoid was not mentioned as replaced.

If it was not part of new starter...that's the culprit.

Ignition switch (smaller wire) activates the solenoid (heavier wire) which in turn activates the (high current) starter.

SOURCE: Turn key to start - nothing happens

I had same problem w/ my '88 Ram50. Turned out to be bad contacts on the battery cables. Temp fix and test was to put a little screw between the post and the end connector. Didn't have a problem then, so I replaced the cables.

There are quite a few bolts on this fender. One on the bottom of the rocker, one between the the door and fender on the "A" pillar, one on the cal, one on the firewall then several on the inner fender and several on the radiator core support. after these are removes you need to take ou the head light assembly and you should have a fender brace under the front of the car. Hope this helps.

When i put the key in ignition it has power but when i go to start it nothing happens, not even a click.


Sounds like either the battery has insufficient power to turn the engine over, or solenoid is stuck the starter motor. A quick check for the battery condition is to turn the headlights on for 10 seconds. If they dim very quickly or do not come on at all, then the battery will need a trickle charge. Check the battery indicator if one fitted or remove the tops from the chambers. Please be careful when removing these as battery contain acid and can be very corrosive, depending on battery condition. If headlights stay on for more than 10 seconds suspect solenoid being stuck.

Good luck. S

Turn key lost all power


Clean and tighten battery cable connections and check battery ground, engine ground-should be a ground strap from engine to the body or frame. If this happens and you have nothing, no headlights, nothing-it's almost certainly a problem at or right off the battery.

92 plymouth voyager wont start and nothing work the windows wont go down the lock and unlock button does nothing idk what the problem is i had the battery tested and the battery is fine what would cause...


Nothing works? How about the headlights, do they work? If yes, then start checking all fuses in the Power Distribution Center or Box under the hood. If no, then look for a bad maxi-fuse in the PDC, and check for a bad fusible link between the battery and the PDC. The battery positive cable goes to the starter, but a pigtail lead off the positive would go to the PDC, to distribute power to all the various circuits on the car.
When you turn the key to on, does the dash light up? If yes, at least power is getting to, and going through the ignition switch. One could then check for power on the starter solenoid wire when key was held in crank or start position.
If nothing when turning key to on-no dash lights, nothing-then check for an ignition fuse in the PDC. If fuse is good check for power being available at the ignition switch connector. If no power there, check wiring between PDC and the ignition switch-if power is up to the switch, but nothing happens with key on, no dash or warning lights, then could have a bad ignition switch.
It just sounds like a maxi-fuse has blown, or a bad fusible link. Good luck.

Jaguar x type battery dead


What year and engine size is this 2008 jaguar x type?

Are you sure the battery is good, did you have it tested, next if battery is good and you can see bright headlights when you turn them on then i would look at the fuses, if you jump started it you may have blown a fuse.

when you say no ignition what do you mean? are the dash lights coming on when you turn the key?

Is the problem that you have no knd of power to car or every thing lights up but nothing happens when you try to crank engine, or does engine crank (SPIN OVER) but not start up ?

let me know the answers to these questions and i will help you. good day

Engine doesnt respond to key


Welcome to Fixya

You may want to check first if you have a fully charged or good battery. You may honk your horn or test the headlight. If battery is ok then you might need to test the ignition system. Turn on your headlights and try to turn the key to start position. Your headlight should go dim. If nothing happens then the problem is the ignition assembly.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I am removing the dash from my 1967 chevelle, got all the switches out w/ the exception of the ignition switch, I can turn the bezel so far and then it appears to stop turning and the switch is still in...


I have a '67 Chevelle SS and I have to replace the ignition switch too. I tried removing the very top edge of the dash by removing all of the screws but it won't budge. How did you remove yours?
