No Crank when trying to start

I thought it might have been the starter, but after i bench tested it, the starter works fine. When i re-installed it still same problem no crank when i try to start it. Battery voltage is normal, fuses are fine. Running out of solutions. The only thing else might be ignition switch??? not sure?

    I have the same problem. Car sometimes starts sometimes not without a jump. If I jump start it it will start right up. I have not checked it with a meter but will on Saturday, supposed to be nice out. I thought about just running a starter button to the starter bypassing the ignition switch, I did this years ago on an F150 and worked good but I need to find the correct way to wire the button... any thoughts?

I think there also is a fuseable link in the purple wire at the starter you could also check there.

Check the neutral safety switch.Check to see if you have battery voltage going to the switch on the yellow wire. If you do, the ignition switch is good. Next check to see if you have battery voltage at the small purple at the starter, if you don't then the neutral switch is bad.
The neutral switch is mounted on top of the tramsmission for an automatic, on the clutch pedal for a manual.

New Battery/starter and still wont crank.


car wont crank or car wont start? I would say your battery cables are bad,, acid gets in from battery and erodes internal cable parts... need a Meter to check it out.. put the meter on battery while someone tries to start it, if the voltage drops from 13.5 to 10 then it is trying to turn over, I always have the new starters tester before I leave a store, they are remanufactured in Malaysa and they use old parts in most of them..

When you turn the ignition and it clicks but will not turn over and the lights still work what could it be


low battery, battery cables not making secure connection, battery terminals oxidized or needing cleaning/brushing .... failed starter .... tap the starter with a wrench, it can revive it :)

No crank


This is old; you've probably already fixed it. Starter relay, battery, and battery cables/terminals are all suspects.

1997 chrysler sebring jxi no start


Do head lights stay on (bright) while trying to crank starter? If not, starter motor isn't getting enough current, OR engine is locked. Is there current getting through the solenoid to starter motor? Check the ground connection between the engine and chassis as well as battery and chassis.

2000 Toyota Land Cruiser having on and off trouble starting, Similar to previous post. Had batery, alternator and starter tested on the vehicle and was told the starter was bad so I pulled the starter but...


Starter problems are very common on these V-8 engines, even though it may test good on the bench it doersn't mean it's going to work in the engine everytime since the becch test doesn't have the load of turning the engine, I would not trust this starter in this case because of all the work involved in removing it again.

1998ford f150 starter won't crank or turn over.full charged battery.starter ingages when crossing small hot bolt with upper larger bolt.clicks with ignition.


First make sure you can turn engine over with a socket and that it is not seized. Second if engine checks out fine does the starter just click with the ignition key? If it does perform what is called a voltage drop test on the starter cables. Connect a volt meter on each end of the cable you are testing you should read no more that a half a volt drop when loading the circuit. If cables check out fine pull the starter and have it bench tested at an auto parts store. But be carefull bench testing can show a starter is ok with out putting a load on it, if it still shows good on the bench you still may need to replace it. If you don't get a click with the key check for 12 volts at the starter connector unplugged, if no trace starter wire noting color code back through the starter safety switch back to the ignition switch.
