I had a 1994 pathfinder with the same problem. Direct wire the load pin on the starter solenoid to the positive terminal on the battery with a push-button switch between and mount it on the dash of the car. You will also need to disconnect the existing wire on the load pin of the solenoid and tape it up. This will allow you to engage the starter without the key using the push button, however, you will still need to crank the key to the start position while turning the motor over to give you fuel pressure.

Maybe a temporary solution for you but its worked on my pathfinder for more than 2 years.

I have the same truck I rebuilt, it, took 2 years. Its on car domain.com. heres the link.http://www.cardomain.com/id/Marine4x4

The problem is with the wire going to the starter, the relay telling the starter to work. it will get loose or caroded, check that first, it sounds like your problem. Good Luck!!

Connect battery>>>>try unlocking the vehicle from the inside (door closed), using the power un/lock button. Make sure the key is set to the "on" position. Most of the time this works. If this doesnt work, try using the key to lock and unlock the door through the key hole. Hopefully this helps!!

1998 massey 1250 diesel tractor has a new battery but will not turn over. When you turn the key everything go off and does not turn the starter


Question ,was it running before this happened

If so ,try and turn the crank shaft ,if it turns then the problem is either a battery cable , check connections at battery and starter and also the ground .

If this fails , take a pair of jumper cables hook to battery with out battery cables hooked up .

Then hook ground from jumper cables to frame and positive to large stud on starter solinoid , take screw driver touch large post of starter to small post on starter solenoid if it just clicks or does nothing replace starter.

Be very careful these are large amperage's your working with ,and can be dangerous ! if not comfortable with this method then just take starter out and have it tested in town.

I have a 93 ford f150. I'm switching the starter from one with a selenoid to no selenoid. Having major problems. Can you help


Use a Ford remote starter solenoid, here is a Standard brand part number and where to order it cheap.

Below is a simple wiring diagram of a remote starter solenoid, since you say the new starter will not have a solenoid hook directly to the starter B+ battery post. Mount the remote solenoid as close as possible to the starter, use bulk battery cable or see if they sell it in made up sizes of different lengths. Use the right color cable which is red (B+)

Well, if your starter starts to turn when you hook the battery cable up, then you have hooked the cable to the wrong post on the starter. You have two large posts and one small post on the starter solenoid, the battery cable goes on the large post that has nothing else hooked to it. The other large post should have a large braided cable going into the starter motor housing. If the starter still will not turn the engine over when it is wired correctly then you will need to look closer at the flywheel ring gear.

Vehicle wont hold charge after one day or so of non use


Sounds like you have a drain. Take off the positive battery post,and hook a test light to the unhooked positive battery cable. Then touch the end of the test light to the battery positive post on the battery,...if it lights up,with the key off,and all doors closed,then you have a system draw. Start pulling fuses untill the test light bulb goes out. When it goes out,use your manual to see what that fuse operates,and that will narrow it down for you. Good Luck!

I don't know how whatever accessories you have are hooked up but,

When I would run two batteries for my stereo in my car I had it connected to the auxilary battery. The isolators kinda **** because they are to send more power from the charging system to the battery that needs the most charge. They do not "isolate" as in makeing the system use one battery while not draining the other.

What I did was to hook a solenoid (mine was aftermarket but I think the old style Ford starter solenoids that bolted to a fender will do the same) inline of the battery cable so when my key was off one battery would be cut off from the other. That way I could play the sterio without draining the battery that started the car (the radio was on a rocker switch for when I needed to kill power).

Truck will not start how can i tell if its a starter or selonoid


does it spin real fast without clanging and grinding against the flywheel? if so then its probably the solenoid bad. do you have to hit the starter with a hammer then it works? it is probably bad brushes or a worn motor. eather way i think you can only get a new starter and solenoid together not sold seperate. check for bad battery cables (loose).

I'm trying to install a new battery in my 1984 Nissan Sentra. When I hook up the terminals, the wiring starts to smoke leading me to believe that the hook up is backwards. What is the correct hook up for...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly (Electrician since late 1960's)

Ground goes to the - pole. Hooking it up backwards can damage your alternator, wiring harnesses and fuse links. (Fuse link damage is a nightmare to sort out!) What you do by hooking up a battery backwards is turn your vehicle wiring harness into a giant heating element. (<-Very bad!) If you just changed the battery and then you hooked up the cables with the smoking cable result you certainly did connect the cables backwards. The ground cable... will connect to chassis and in most cases the engine body / transmission somewhere.
The positive cable will eventually connect to the starter. Follow the ground lead from the battery to the chassis or engine body connection. (metal to metal contact) Once your sure that is the ground cable; connect it to the - post of the battery AFTER connecting the positive post terminal.
If you have a newer audio system you will have lost your radio codes. We can not provide the codes for anti-theft reasons. Activation Codes must be from the car dealer or audio system retailer.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Starter motor


Is there any sound when the key is turned? The solenoid may be stuck, and a light tap with a hammer may free it up. The starter is located on the engine block.
