Some of the tests I can recommend for free require the car to be driven to Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys. You need to have the charging system and the battery checked. Then they can check the "draw" of the rebuilt starter for performance. Or have the starter removed and bench checked. It should have some type of warranty.
Now other problems can cause you to destroy a starter. One of them being a malfunctioning Alarm lockout. When the battery is low, a lockout may still reduce the voltage to the starter on purpose. This is a form of antitheft.
You need to explain to us if the engine was turning over before and if the engine tried to fire at all. Some heat related failures occur in the coil.
you need to determine if you have spark or not. if not, is the cam turning? does it sound normal whan turning over? take the oil filler cap off, and see if cam turns while someone is cranking engine. if not, the timing belt is broken. if you do have spark, then the engine isnt getting fuel. you may need a shop to get further into it.
hello,I will try and help you with this problem.Check the battery and connections.The battery might have enough volts,but no amps,and this would cause your problem.You may have to have it load tested too find this out.Also the alternator needs to be checked to see if it is charging correctly.If all this is good,check the neutral safety switch.If I can be of service,let me email@example.com
1. disarm the air bags if equipped. 2.then disconnect the negative battery terminal .3. next remove the positive battery terminal and battery. 4. remove the ignition igniter if equipped. 5. remove the air cleaner assembly. 6 disconnect the starter motor and solenoid wiring from the starter. 7 then remove the starter from the vehicle by removing the two bolts accessed by removing the air cleaner. installation is the opposite of removal.
a dropped/disconected starter solenoid cable is a good candidate, a heavy cable runs from the battery to the starter, a lighter cable runs from the ignition to the starter solenoid, the ignition key throws the solenoid which engages the starter pinion gear in the flywheel, and connects the cable to spin the starter motor. even loose may not be producing enoug current to fully engage the starter.
there is a fusible link in the battery cable that is a good candidate.
if the battery were disconnected during alternator changeover, look for loose cables at the battery posts, and corrosion on the posts.
if the battery was not disconnected look for collapsed positive plates on one or more cells of the battery..
