Remove the 2 solenoid retainning srews, then rotate the solenoid to unlock it from the starter housing, you must remove the starter from the car to replace the solenoid.

G 35 not starting and not making a clicking noise. Help


Check relay, fuse. If your getting 12 volts to starter and selenoid on starter is receiving power then you have a faulty starter. If relay is bad then easy fix. If relay is good then its either a problem with ignition switch or there is a sensor on your tranny that could be bad. Check relay first

What should i do when i replaced my alternator and got a new battery, and the truck still needs to be jumped started after two days. what could be the problem??


Sounds like you need a new starter. Did you check it out before you replaced the alternator and battery?

Some vehicles have a seperate selenoid on the firewall that engages when you turn to switch to start the engine. Others have the selenoid mounted to the starter. I

I would first bypass the selenoid valve and provide power directly to the starter motor. If it starts then it's the selenoid. If it doesn't then it's the starter motor - may have a flat spot in the windings or possibly burned but not shorted windings in the motor.

I have a 1998 chev cav,It does not shift into 4 gear when driving.its a auto trans.


You have a converter lockup problem, bad shift solenoid, or possible clutch pack, have your transmission scanned to pinpoint the problem.

I have a 2003 Galant GTZ 3.0L . batery is good and all the lights work. when I try to start the car all I hear is single click. the car does not start. I cleaned the batery cables and still the same, no...


if you've tested your battery and know you have a good connection at the terminals that one click sound is a bad starter. you may wish to attempt to tap on it while cranking to try to get it to start. if you do crawl under your car use jack stands to hold the car in the air. never leave a losd on the jack. safety first. if this was helpful please leave positive rating.

Cannot fire the starter. Think it is an electrical issue. Is there a fuse that I need to check?


Hi!

My name is Tom and I trust I can be of service to you.

I will now asume by "firing the starter" you mean the car will not turn over. I will also assume that you have checked the battery and it is able to make contact with the starter selenoid. The starter selenod is the salami shaped unit which is on top of the starter.

You will find that there are three contacts on the back of the selenoid. One is the ground to the engine block and the other are leads for the battery.

I will also assume that you do not want to take the starter off.(taking it off is the simplist way to check if the starter is bad or the starter seloid).

Back to checking the starter. Under the car looking up to the sunlight from the starter point of view, you will see a cable that runs from the starter selenoid to the battery. Also make sure that the ground wire(the wire which attaches to the engine block) is clean.

You now know that you have battery power to engauge the selenoid and the starter if both are working properly.

Attempt to start the car. If it does, you have solved the problem. If not,using a pair of jumper cables, attach one to ground and the red one to "short" the curcuit.

This is done by placing the red jumper cable clamp accross both non-grounded leads off the startrer selenoid. If you hear a click, then the starter seleniod is working. If you hear a click and the car turns over your starter and seleniod are both good.
If you do not get a ckick or a start then the starter and attached selenoid are both bad and need replacing.

I trust this will be of help to you please call or write and I will be happy to give you further assistance.

Intermittent starting problem. Turning key does nothing.


Sounds like you could have a faulty switch, but I would check the starter selenoid first. Sometimes when the selenoid goes bad it will behave in the way you describe. If, with your key in the on position, (not on start), you can jump power from the hot wire, (positive), post on your selenoid to the hot wire that goes from the selenoid to the starter and the starter then engages, but doesn't otherwise, it is a selenoid problem. Good Luck! I hope you find this very helpful!

Will not roll over . seems like no power to starter


Check connections, clean any corrosion. From your battery, the cable goes to the starter selenoid. The selenoid could be bad, the starter could be bad, the wiring could have a problem. You will find your solution withing these 3 components.

My pick-up truck wont start it had a bad starter so i replaced the starter, then the battery died....but in the same day...i decided to just use other truck and give it a jump start, but my truck was only...


Based on your description, the starter selenoid is not getting enough juice (current) to pull up solidly. So, causes are:
1. Low battery voltage
2. bad connection of battery+ at the battery or at the selenoid terminal.
3. bad ground connection between the starter selenoid and the truck chassis.

If you want to bypass the selenoid, you can place a jumper cable on the "FAR" side of the selenoid (the side that feeds the starter). Then momentarily touch the other end of the jumper to the battery + terminal.

If the starter cranks, then you have confirmed the selenoid as problematic. Remove it and either replace it or disassemble and clean it.
