It sounds like a fault in the starter circuit. It could be a defective neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, or possible a defective ignition switch but I doubt it. Can you hear the starter solenoid??? I'm willing to bet the problem is either with starter relay, neutral safety switch, or starter solenoid.

Its a solenoid...it engages the bendix and truck starts...bendix should retract because power to it gets shut off by ignition switch going to "run".

Only way bendix would stay engaged or get a signal to keep turning ???

No it doesn't mean that you have a problem.When you cross the lugs with a screw driver no matter whether you have the key on or not it will still engage the starter.The reason being that you have the hot wire from the battery going to one terminal and your ignition switch on one terminal.What your basically doing is bypassing the switch and directly energizing the starter.A good way to test a starter is to remove it from your truck hook up your battery cables to your battery.Be very careful when you do this.Hook the ground to the starter casing and just touch the hot cable to the battery lug on the starter.This should engage your starter.You might want to take a look at the fuel delivery system for proper operation.

1996 chevy truck won't start


Hello Friend:

#1) Double Check your Battery Charge it and clean Your Battery Posts and your Battery Cables ,Make sure there is NO Corrosion Hidden Under the Cables

#2) Now Test it for Cranking Volts.By having someone turn the Key to Start While they do that Take a Volt meter Put Black lead on Meter to NEG. Red Lead on Postive Post. With the Key in the Starting Position Your Meter should be 9.6 Volts at least.If it has 9.6 or More.

#3) Next Step is to Check your Solenoid & Starter DICONNECT the NEGATIVE Battery Cable, Raise your Truck up and Secure it w/Stands. With a Drop Light Take a Close look to See if your Battery Cable from your Starter and Your other 2-Smaller wires are Connected good and Tight.

#4) If all the wires are Good and Tight and Clean. Go Ahead and Remove your Starter mark your wires on the Solenoid so you get them back where the are Suppose to Go. Now Have it Bench Tested.Most Garages or even your Local Auto Parts Store can do This.

#5) If your Solenoid and Starter Don't Check out OK,Then Replace Starter and Solenoid.NOTE: Chevy Starters Have Shims that go Between the Starter and Block.Because the Casting on the Starters are not all the Same Thickness. If there were Shims when you Pulled your Stater Don't Throw them out you could Need them with your New Starter.

#6) Re-Install your NEW Starter and Solenoid Put your Wires Back on the Same Terminals they Came off the Old Starter Solenoid. Make Sure they are Good and Tight.

#7) Reconnect your FULLY CHARGED Battery. Remember your Stater should of had at Least 9.6 Volts Under Load .Or its no good.

#8) Now Try to Sart if it Starts Great the problem is Solved

#9) If it will still not Start The Next thing is Your Ignition Switch is Faulty , You should Replace the Ignition Switch.
Note: Your Regulator is Integrated inside your Alternator just for Future Knowlegde.

#10) This Should Solve your Problem.

Please Let me Know By Voting and a Testamony if you Would. Of the Quality of my Solution and Help I have Given You.

I had a problem with my starter solenoid my truck was not starting. i have a 1996 ford ranger i bought a new one the truck started a few times and then it stopped. what is my problem.


You should have your battery tested & make sure that the terminals are cleaned & well protected wth grease once charged fully. Since you crossed/jumped the solenoid & didn't get it to start until jumping the battery (providing extra voltage), that rules out the solenoid and the ignition switch. Sometimes a battery will test full without a load but will not provide the voltage to the solenoid to actually complete the circuit, thus the clicking sound. If the battery is strong, and the starter bad, the solenoid will click solidly once, passing full voltage to the starter that will either turn,hum, or do nothing. good luck

Strange starter behavior in 91 Toyota 4x PU


Sounds like a short in the system - voltage is dropping off before it can fully energize the starter. Try a remote starter, where you jump the battery to the starter. Leave the ignition on, and briefly energize to turn over. This will tell you whether the engine will run or if the short prevents it. If it runs, look for a short in the ignition system.

95 F150 wont crank


the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.
