SOURCE: won't start not even click

I am pretty sure you have a bad solenoid on your starter. Sometimes if you tap on them while someone holds the key in start they will make contact and it will start. Best solution is replace solenoid. You can check it by having someone hold the key in start and measure the voltage from the small wire to ground, if it is bad you will have voltage but it will not even click. Hope that helps you.

SOURCE: Suzuki sidekick 1997 Sport 1.8 liter manual transmission AC power steering. Will start intermittently.

Have you checked coil/coils. Some Suzuki have two coils. When it is on way out it will start itermittenly until finally it won't start at all. Can go on for sometime doing this. I believe coil relays power to starter. Coil
fault often attributed to starter in correctly. Hope this helps.

Where is the battery located


Underneath the air cleaner housing. To remove and replace if you can start the car turn steering wheel fully to the right or remove tire. Open hood, disconnect remote battery terminals, remove air intake filter box, remove vented panel inside front of right wheel well. On these cars you will have to disconnect exposed positive cable battery terminal first. BE CAREFUL YOUR WRENCH DOES NOT TOUCH ANY METAL WHILE REMOVING TERMINAL FROM BATTERY POST. Loosen and remove the two bolts on the tie down that secures battery in place. Slide battery until the negative terminal is exposed, disconnect and slide battery out into wheel well. Reverse order to install new battery.

How to install part sw5928 cruise control switch to a 1998 ford ranger


1 Open the hood and loosen the clamp bolt on the negative battery cable with an adjustable wrench turned in a counterclockwise direction. Pull the cable straight up and off of the terminal and push it aside. Wait 15 minutes, before continuing this procedure, to allow the air bag circuitry to deactivate.
2 Pry the two plastic screw covers from the rear of the steering wheel spokes in the passenger compartment with a flat blade screwdriver. Remove the two screws revealed after removing the covers with an 8 mm socket attached to a ¼-inch drive ratchet wrench turned in a counterclockwise direction.
3 Lift the horn pad straight up from the top of the steering wheel. Carefully pull the air bag wiring harness connector from the bottom of the horn pad. Set the horn pad aside.
4 Remove the two screws holding each cruise control switch (there are two switches, one on each side of the steering wheel) with a Torx screwdriver turned in a counterclockwise direction. Lift up on the switch and pull the wiring connector apart with your thumb and forefinger. Repeat this action for both switches. Remove the switches from the steering wheel.
5 Install the new switches (make sure the "On/Off" switch is on the right-hand side) onto the steering wheel using the original mounting holes. Tighten the holding screws with a Torx screwdriver turned in a clockwise direction.
6 Push the air bag wiring connector back into the bottom of the horn pad until it is fully seated. Place the horn pad into position on the steering wheel. Tighten the holding screws from the back of the steering wheel with an 8 mm socket and ratchet. Push the two screw covers into the back of the steering wheel until they snap into place.
7 Place the negative battery cable back onto the terminal and tighten the clamp nut in a clockwise direction with an adjustable wrench. Close the hood.

Starts if you turn steering wheel


I will take a guess at this. You can't turn the key until you turn the steering wheel a little to the left or the right? This is usually caused by friction on the steering locking mechanism which keeps the key from turning in order to start the car. If this is not the case then you may have a bad ignition switch or cable head connecting to the switch that is not making contact until you move the steering wheel around and it makes contact allowing you to start the vehicle. Good Luck, RAC

Engine died and turns over when moving steering wheel left and right


it sounds like your ignition switch is failing and when you turn the wheel sometimes the steering lock pin is jolting the switch and making a momentary contact, you should try turning the key to the on position and jumping a 12 volt signal wire from the battery to the small wire on the starter (only until it starts do not leave this connected constantly) to confirm this is the switch for sure check for 12 volts out of the switch in the start position (it may be intermittent also) good luck and please rate -jeff here is your part click here 2ea336d.jpeg
