Crown vic 2000 wont crank ? battery, alternator,starter,starter relay all good ?


The problem is in the wiring harness,yes the battery and starter is good, the harness you repaired is the PRNDL. for the starter to start it need a path when the vehicle is Park or Nuetral,there the path is closed some how by Park and Nuetral the path is open.Thats why there is a no start.when in park or nuetral the path is closed.

I have got the starter diconnected from my 2005 5.7 jeep gc but I cant get it out to replace it


1. Disconnect and isolate negative battery cable.
2. Raise and support vehicle.
3. Note: If equipped with 4WD and certain transmissions, a support bracket is used between front axle and side of transmission. Remove 2 support bracket bolts at transmission. Pry support bracket slightly to gain access to lower starter mounting bolt.
4. Remove two mounting bolts (2).
5. Move starter motor towards front of vehicle far enough for nose of starter pinion housing to clear housing. Always support starter motor (1) during this process, do not let starter motor hang from wire harness.
6. Tilt nose downwards and lower starter motor far enough to access and remove nut that secures battery positive cable wire harness connector eyelet to solenoid battery terminal stud. Do not let starter motor hang from wire harness.
7. Remove battery positive cable wire harness connector eyelet from solenoid battery terminal stud.
8. Disconnect battery positive cable wire harness connector from solenoid terminal connector receptacle.
9. Remove starter motor.

98 Durango will not turn over, replaced battery, battery cables, had started checked. Just get a clicking noise at starter like a dead battery. Will start some times.


Sounds like a bad connection. Clean all the connections first then if you have a clicking sound coming from the PDC (fuse box) on the drivers side under the hood then it sounds like you have a bad starter .
As the relay is clicking that means the ignition switch is good. Just insure that the relay is good. There is a spare in the PDC you can swap and check out so its the starter Starter/solenoid combo.take your volt meter and check battery volts while the starter is engaged, if you see very little change from the static voltage it's likely the starter bendix is being egaged into the ring gear but the high current side of the starter is not working, this is likely due to a dirty or worn commutator or worn brushes in the starter motor. If you do see a larger drop in voltage( say down to under 9.5volts) you more than likely have a current flow issue, possibly a weak cell in the battery, or a shorted starter motor winding.My best recomendation would be to remove the starter motor, and the battery, take them in with you to your local parts house and have them both tested, most parts stores will perform these tests for free, on the possibility that hey can sell you something.
STARTER MOTORREMOVAL:-1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.2. Raise and support the vehicle.3. Remove the nut and lock washer securing the starter motor to the mounting stud on the transmission torque converter housing Starter Motor Remove/Install4. While supporting the starter motor with one hand, use the other hand to remove the upper mounting screw from the starter motor.5. Slide the automatic transmission cooler tube bracket forward on the tubes far enough for the starter motor mounting flange to be removed from the lower mounting stud.6. Move the starter motor towards the front of the vehicle far enough for the nose of the starter pinion housing to clear the transmission torque converter housing. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.7. Tilt the nose downwards and lower the starter motor far enough to access and remove the nut that secures the battery positive cable connector eyelet to the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.8. Remove the battery positive cable connector eyelet from the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.9. Disconnect the battery positive cable wire harness connector from the solenoid terminal connector receptacle. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.10.Remove the starter motor from the engine compartment. --This will help.

I can only find one wire to the starter the one from the battery where does the small one come from?


Comes from the neutral start switch on the trans, then from the ignition switch. The wire should be hanging there in the harness. Usually its PURPLE.

I bought a new alternater and also a new battery my car still wont charge the battery. What else could it be?


There should be a heavy wire going from the alternator output to the terminal on the starter solenoid that has the positive battery cable also. This wire contains a 'fuse link' which will burn out if the alternator has a shorted diode. It should be hanging out of the wiring harness that the wire runs in. Replace it with the same component as original.

The car wont start. was told its a burnt wire


sounds like you are getting the run around there. Your best bet is to go to your local parts store and buy a Haynes or Chiltons manual that has the schematics and troubleshooting sections for your vehicle. Another thing you will need is a test light at minimum. a good multimeter is advised though. I can give you what my manual says about that though. now first, have to know, is the starter turning when you move the key or not. I am going to assume it isnt. check battery terminals, make sure battery is fully charged, automatic transmission in park and then try it in nuetral while trying to start. that would be the nuetral safety switch on the transmission. starter pinion gear jammed in the flywheel. place vehicle in gear and try rocking the vehicle. seized engine. try turning the bottom crank pully by hand. starter bad, starter solenoid bad. You can check these by taking something metallic and touching the 2 post together on the starter. (The big and little posts). That should get you started though. good luck

Sometimes will start and sometimes it wont


When it won't start, does it at least make a click sound? If so try tapping on the body of the starter with a small hammer while some else holds the the key in the start position. If it starts then your starter needs to be replaced.
