After checking the battery connections, turn on the headlights and blow the horn. If the horn sounds sick, charge the battery. If ok, then remove the starter and clean the bellhousing where it mounts as this is where it is grounded. Frankster016

1986 mustang will not start put new starter new igniton new battery and still wont start could it be the solenoid.


Can you clarify "won't start"? Does the engine turn over when you turn the key, or does it just click or do nothing at all? If it does clicks or does nothing, the starter solenoid would be suspect. If it turns over but doesn't start, that presents a whole new set of possible problems. If you have a relative or friend who's mechanically inclined, you could ask that person to momentarily "jumper" across the solenoid (the larger cable connectors). If the starter engages, you solenoid could be the problem or the circuitry that triggers the solenoid may be malfunctioning. Either way, you've narrowed down the culprit. Post back if unsuccessful. Good luck.

I have put 5 starters on my car.They work good for 2 or 3 wks. then it's back to the click, click until it cranks.Any suggestions?


Sounds like your loosing power to the starter motor (big wire at starter), the small wire is good cause you hear it clicking, that's the solenoid, next time it clicks, need to check voltage at big wire on starter with test light, while some one holds key to start, if you loose voltage, check wire at both ends, battery and at starter.

The car refused to start, made clicking sounds @ the solenoid and the starter, still had current, the radio was working etc...So I bought a new solenoid which had an extra screw at the bottom where the old...


First, put the old solenoid back on and see if you get the original clicking noise. If yes, you either wired the new one wrong or got a wrong and/or defective part. Your clicking noise can come from several places. First, make sure the battery is good and charged up. Dirty/corroded battery cable ends (yes, even if the lights and radio work), bad connection at the starter, bad solenoid, bad battery cables. A dead starter may engage but not turn, making a kind of click noise too. Take the starter out and get it checked. Remote possibility that it is the ignition switch in the steering column is adjusted wrong or bad. A jump from the positive battery cable to the small post on the solenoid should engage the starter.

when you turn the key to crank the engine can you hear a click each time you turn the key. If you can hear it that is your starter solenoid. It is suppose to connect the battery to the starter motor. speak pf coincidence I had that exact same problem with my 94 F150 today. On the way home I stopped and bought a new starter, (which by the way comes with a new solenoid already attached to the starter motor). If you can hear the click I'd say your starter is bad. If there is no click, Your solenoid is not working. The problem could be no voltage is getting to the solenoid, or the solenoid is bad. No voltage getting to the solenoid can be checked by putting a voltmeter on the smaller wire going to the solenoid and turning the key. You can make a substitute voltmeter by buying a 12 volt car light and a socket to match connect 2 wires to the socket and you have a voltage indicator, put one wire on the smaller wire on the solenoid and the other wire to the engine metal (the ground wire). turn the key and see if the light come on. If it doesn't the solenoid/starter is bad.

Hope this helps
