Replace the cylinoid switch

Posted on Jan 03, 2009

  • Glenn Snow Jan 03, 2009

    The cylinoid switch is located on starter. If the switch and starter are ok, the start gear may be binding in the ring worn flywheel ring gear or you could have the wrong starter/gear match for your flywheel ring gear. ; ck the parts shop and see if there is more than one option '

How do I bypass my starter for a 2002 chevy s10 where is the starter and what do I touch with a screw driver this is temporary till payday

From the positive pole of the battery, a solid wire goes to the starter relay, and from there to the starter.
Turn on contact, jump the power from the battery + to the starter.

Sounds like a battery to me.
They can show enough voltage, but when put under load they do not have enough amps to start...and amps are what really matters when engaging the starter.

2003 dyna starter turns but wont engage, new battery fitted

Hi Anonymous, lift up rubber boot on positive cable to starter, unplug starter relay wire usually green, with a jumper wire connected to positive battery cable starter stud, touch blade connecter on starter where starter relay wire was removed. If starter engages and turns over engine then your starter relay is bad. If starter activates but does not engage then your starter drive/clutch is bad. Good luck

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.
