The bell housing of your gear box is bolted to the engine. Either at the front or rear of the engine you will find the starter motor bolted to the engine adjacent to the bell housing for your gearbox. The starter motor has to engage with the flywheel to start your car and the clutch is also bolted to the fly wheel.

2011 Honda Accord. Sometimes my car won't start so I get a jump and it starts right up. Battery charge is great and so is the alternator. Also it does make the clicking sound so I don't believe it's the...


1. your battery needed to be checked with battery load checker. some batteries are producing 12.6 v or so but the current current capacity is bad.
2. also check your alternator if it delivers about 13-14 volts when idling to charge the battery.
3. your battery may still be ok if the alternator is the culprit and doesn't charge enough. replace or repair alternator if found faulty.
4. sometimes the starter is also filled with dust that insulates rotor contact terminals. depending on the mileage of your car, it may need some cleaning to get rid of the elecrtrical reistance these dust produces. incase you don't have time to service the starter, try gently whacking it with a hammer 2-3 times and restart your car. the vibrations will clear the dust debris inside your starter, hopefully,

Will your car turn over if the starter is not working


You can test the alternator without taking it off by simply starting the vehicle and while it is running, remove the positive battery connection. If the alternator is bad, it will stall. The starter should turn over with ease and not labor while doing so.. If it is laboring, it could be the starter or the battery. An Advanced auto store will test the battery for you while it is in the car. Simply take it to the store, go inside and ask one of the tech's inside to test it for you. If you've ruled out the alternator and battery, it is most likely the starter.

I ve vchanged the battery and alternator on my 94 nissan sentra and the system still wont charge what is the cause


My wife and I have owned three 1994 Sentra cars. One of them went through batteries and alternators like crazy. Last time the 1-year old battery died, I replaced it and went straight to an auto electric shop. The technician found the alternator was putting out about 77 amps the entire time the engine was running (factory alternators are rated for 80 amps, but only when charging nearly-dead batteries). He also found that the harness running to the alternator was hot enough to scald you if you touched it. Miraculously, I found a factory NOS harness on eBay and bought it. Easy to put in, and the car went from a maximum charging voltage of about 13.1 volts, to a MCV of up to 14.1! Haven't replaced a battery or alternator on it since. Hope this helps someone...

Blowing fuseable links from starter to alt, (well one) the gage is smaller then the OEM, however would a bad starter cause this fuseable link to fail, as the altenater is brand new


If this link runs from the alternator to the starter then i would say it likely but i belive the connection is to recarge the battery, the link that runs from the alt to starter connects to starter with another cable that runs to battery, so this link is used to charge the battery, heres a wiring diagram to show you. i would say its morelikely that the problem may be a bad alternator or the wiring from alt to starter is shorting. follow the wire (fuseable link) from alternator to starter and check it for shorting onto something, if nothing found then iwould say its the alternator or starter. to make sure which is the problem, when the link pops can you start the car, will starter spin over the engine if the answer is yes then replace the starter but if the starter doesnt spin engine with blown link then replace the starter, here are the wiring diagram to help.johnjohn2_148.gifjohnjohn2_149.gif

I have changed my alternator four times and it just went out again so this will be the fifth time. i have a new battery also. could there be a different problem causing the alternator to keep going bad?


A) check if the signal to the from pcm(computer) to micro procesor inside the rectifier is on and off if on all the times it will set a too hi output level and alternator will be damage B) from alternator to battery there is a fuse link is it still there? check c) before the electricity reach alternator from the battery first goes to the starter > is the wire from alternator to starter attached to the correct bolt at the starter solenoid ? check one of the big bolt at the starter has positive all the times and the other big bolt only at the moment you energyse the starter and send positive from solenoid to the core of starter if the alternator-starter wire is at the wrong bolt starter damage and fuse link damage is the result
