It will be a small wire that runs from the starter selinoid to the starter, or the small wire that runs from the starter selnoid on the starter to the ignition.

Disconnect the wire at the starter selnoid, it's easiler to reach than at the ignition switch. If it no longer cranks, you know that you now have have of your problem fixed.

If that is the problem, it has to be from the firewall down to the engine. You didn't do anything under the dash. Right?

SOURCE: starter runs constantly when u connect the battery

Check the wire from the battery at the starter there is a tab to keep it from spinning when you tighten the nut,it may be touching the other nut on the solenoid causing the starter to spin.You can also remove the wire on the solenoid that engages it then it should not spin.If it does it is a starter problem

My 1999 gmc jimmy won't start, it makes a clicking noise when I try to start it and had plenty of juice to battery, is it my starter or maybe my water pump?


No ,the water pump has nothing to do with it , Maybe the battery cable or connections at the battery ! You need to have a technician do a starting system voltage drop test ! Engine Won Start No Crank Diagnosis Troubleshooting Starting System Issues

Why my 99 gmc jimmy will crank all day long but wont start until I give it a jump


Wow, big problem. This may not help because you may have already checked it, but have you checked the ignition coil? If you have, then ignore this. Good luck.

2001gmc jimmy wont start


Sounds like dirty corroded battery post connections...remove from battery clean and/or replace the post push in terminals...these can be purchased through your local parts store for under $5. They are push out...push new in also clean inside the battery connections...be sure new posts are tight...all systems will need to reset after the dis-connect...Hope this helps.

I have a 97 gmc jimmy and we puta head gasket on and now there isn't any power after the starter? Anyone have any ideas?


Starter relay is in the middle of the firewall near the top of the firewall. I would check connections and /or replace that relay. They are very inexpensive.
Also, you could turn the key on and run a jumper wire from power to the starter solenoid and see if it starts. You can easily get to the solenoid though the right wheel well. Be careful not to ground the wire by mistake.

2001 GMC jimmy won't start. New starter, new


If the starter motor is turning the problem may be a broken flywheel tooth. If starter is not engaging the solenoid may be bad or not hooked up but that seems unlikely since starter was replaced. The problem's down there. If solenoid not clicking then problem may be further back.

PUT NEW STARTER IN BUT ENGINE WONT TURN OVER


1) Low battery, not enough juice.

2) Starter housing dirty, and engine block area where it connects to. Starter gets ground off of the engine block. (Negative connection) Positive connection from battery goes to solenoid. Clean starter, and engine area where it mounts.

3) Brushes for starter are completely worn down. The click you hear/heard, is one of the last it will make before the brushes are changed.

Test the starter off of the car with jumper cables, and a small jumper wire for the solenoid. Starter works you know it isn't the problem.

My 1998 gmc jimmy won't start every time it 's out in rainy conditions


Clean and retighten the connections at battery and starter. Make sure the battery ground is good.
Sounds like a connection losing contact when it's wet.

I have a 99 jimmy, and just had the heater core replaced in it so the dash came out. Now that its back in the fuse for the 4x4 switches and interior lights keeps blowing. why would this be?


There is a wire pinched in a screw,or there is a wire left unplugged,and it is laying on a bare metal bracket,or something like that.
