I have a 2000 skidoo tundra snowmachine. The starter cord has pulled out and won't go back in. Is this something I can fix myself (I am reasonably handy) or do I have to take it to the shop?

The rewind mechanism is bad---I would take it to an expert and have it repaired or on a unit of this age replaced.

SOURCE: After starting my 91 camaro the starter enguage

Replace the starter you will or have damaged the starter drive and could ruin the teeth on the fly wheel. The spring has gone bad in the solinoid or the shaft thats is activated magnetically is dirty and sticking, ther could be a problem with the starter switch but that is less likely than the solinoid.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 buick

Hi, the best way to find the problem is to interrogate the starter relay socket. You will need a 12 volt test light to do this. The starter relay is in the fuse box under the hood. Pull the relay out, connect your test light clip to chassis ground and probe the terminals in the relay socket. With the key off, there should be one terminal that lights the test light. If not, check the 30 amp starter fuse in the same box. If yes, turn the key to start and probe the terminals again. There should be another terminal that lights the light. If not, check the 10 amp PCM fuse in the same box. If this fuse is good, but still no test light, suspect the ignition switch. If you get both test lights on when the switch is turned to start, move your test light clip to battery positive and probe the other two terminals. One of these terminals goes to the starter solenoid and should light the test light dimly. If not, the wire is broken somewhere. The other terminal should light the light brightly when the key is turned to start--this is the PCM start signal, which is ground whenever the passlock system is not activated and the transmission is in park or neutral. If you do not get this light, suspect your passlock system is not seeing a factory key in the ignition switch or the park/neutral switch may be broken. If passlock is activated, there should be a security light on the dash or a red light blinking.

Please check the fuses first and let me know the results of your tests or, if you don't have a test light or voltmeter, I can provide some less effective troubleshooting steps.

My 2000 Dodge Caravan won't start

Are you saying the engine will not crank, or crank but will not start ?
None of the engine sensors come into play until after the engine is cranking.
Cranking problems can include the neutral safety switch and other factors with the crank circuit back to the key switch.

Bad starter?

If the starter turns but the engine does not, the two most common causes are a section of teeth missing from the flywheel, or the bendix drive is not working on the starter.
The bendix gear is supposed to move out and engage the flywheel teeth when the starter turns.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus. My wife left the radio running with the ignition off for a short while. Now the car won't turn over, won't start, won't jump. There is one click when trying to s

The click you are hearing is most likely the start slenoid making contact, however you should short the large wires @ the solenoid to make certain the starter still doesn't run, if so try tapping the starter with a hammer to shift the comutator a litle and try to start. Even if it now starts the starter will continue to give you problems so the proper fix is change the starter

91 Dodge Spirit stuck in low gear, won't shift out.

Sounds like you need a new shift cable. Remove the shift cable from the linkage on the transmission. If the transmission linkage moves freely back into the park position and the shift lever inside the car still will not move back into park than the cable is bad. If the transmission shift linkage will not move back into park with the cable removed than the transmission will need to be pulled apart to service the shift rod.

My 2007 tundra went dead. The ignition won't start

There are several possibilities ranging from a defective starter, to bad cable connections, to the onboard security system locking out the starter relay, or an aftermarket accessory interfering with the starter circuit, or a locked-up/damaged engine.

I have had vehicles towed into my shop for similar complaints when the only problem was that the customer was using a cheap duplicate key that they had made at the hardware store that did not have the required computer chip in it.

I have also had vehicles towed in where the customer had replaced the battery and did not have good cable connections or forgot to connect one of the wires that was supposed to to get hooked-up to the battery connector.

Then there are the questions: Are you getting any kind of "clicking" noises when turning the key or is it completely dead? If it is clicking, WHAT is clicking? Is it the starter motor itself that you hear or just the starter motor relay? Do you have battery power at the starter "S" terminal when turning the key? If not, is the transmission selector in "PARK"? Does the shift indicator on the dash indicate that the transmission range sensor is in "PARK"? (possible defective transmission range sensor) Are there any fault codes stored in ANY of the modules connected to your onboard computer network?

It is really hard to say without being able to see the truck.

Crossed battery cables on 2006 tundra now won't start. checked starter and it is ok. fuses are ok. is emc fried?

not sure, you could test it. Alternatively, I think I'd first be looking more at the starter solenoid and test that.
Best regards
Please provide feedback

I need help on how to change a headlight bulb on my 2000 toyota tundra

  • 1 Open the Tundra's hood and locate the back of the headlight assembly inside the engine compartment.
  • 2 Unplug the electrical connector from the assembly and remove the rubber cover from the bulb socket.
  • 3 Release the retaining spring to loosen the old bulb, and then pull it directly out of the socket. Carefully dispose of the bulb to prevent it from cracking or shattering.
  • 4 Align the tabs of the new bulb with the cutouts of the mounting hole. Then, carefully press the bulb into the socket until it's secure.
  • 5 Install the rubber cover in its original position and reattach the electrical connector to the headlight assembly. Make sure the rubber cover is fastened to the socket before continuing.
  • 6 Start your Tundra's engine and test the headlights to make sure they work before closing the hood.
