I've got a friend who had the same trouble.we replaced the solinoid,but that did not solve the problem.i believe the neutral safety switch was the problem.but he went out one morning and it fired right up.he had it in the mud the day before ,so i think it may have messed with the neutral safety switch,so i think that is what i would check first. cuk_miller@yahoo.com

How do I check a ground connection ? My 1988 GMC Jimmy has a new starter and again it seems to free wheel and not start.Seems to help if I put it in neutral.


You could possibly have a bad park neutral safety switch , power ( voltage ) from ignition goes thru the park neutral safety switch to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . Does your vehicle have automatic or manual transmission ? And you should have voltage drop testing on the starter circuit done . Starter Voltage Drop You could have a bad battery cable .

My 2003 Buick Regal wouldn't start on a very cold day. I came back the next day and decided to shift it out of park and back into park and it started right up. What could cause that to happen? 3800 engine


When you said "it wouldn't start" did it turn over (starter cranking the engine) or did it act like the battery was dead and wouldn't crank, even though all the dash lights lit up?

If it simply didn't crank over but then by you shifting it out of park, then back into park, may indicate a park/neutral switch problem.

It may have been something as simple as the shifter, when the vehicle was last parked, didn't fully engage the park/neutral switch into the park position. BUT by you moving the shifter out and back into park it engaged the switch.

Cold weather can do some strange things sometimes when it comes to mechanical devices. IF it acts up again, simply try the "trick" that worked the last time.

It may just be temperature related and may not give any more problems once the weather warms up.

Hope this helps.

-If starter spin it self or you head it click but not spin the engine. >> Need new starter.
-If no click or not thing at all>>>Check battery cable from battery to starter and the line from the ignition to the solenoid.

Good Luck

Can a cam position stop starter from engaging


Cam position does not affect the starter. With the car in neutral or park the neutral switch is closed (on) and the starter is in working condition it will engage. When it does not it could be corroded battery terminals. the neutral switch, Starter solenoid. At the starter jump between the small wire and the big one. If this engages the starter check the neutral switch.

I have a 1993 gmc sonoma, put a new ecm in it but it willn't tern over,lights will com on tho an if i cros the starter the plugs wont fiyer


The problem is in the start circuit if the starter won't engage from the key. From battery to ignition switch to neutral park safety switch to starter relay to starter solenoid to starter to ground and back to battery-lights come on so switch is good, next check the neutral safety switch for power in and power out.
Once you get the start circuit working so starter engages from the key, then you can address the ignition circuit for possible no spark.

MY 2001 GMC YUKON XL WILL NOT START OR TURN OVER. I REPLACE A NEW STARTER AND BATTERY, WHAT ELSE NEED TO BE DONE. ITS SEEMS LIKE ITS AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch. Then check the battery cables and ground connections.

Will not start in cold weather. Engine will crank and try to start and started all summer but last spring and now that the weather has turned turned cold. It will start first thing in the morning and it...


Get your battery voltage checked.The cold weather will reduce the strength of your battery. The starter solenoid is trying to engage the starter but it doesn't have enough power from the battery to make it happen.If the battery voltage is low then get it recharged .The voltage of fully charged battery will show near to 12 volts.--------------That's it.

1998 ford f150 doesnt have signal for starter solenoid and ignition switch is new


Using a jumper wire, connect the S. terminal on the starter relay to the battery connection on the relay. the starter should engage. if it does not, your problem is between the starter relay and the starter itself. if it does engage, check your neutral safety switch if you have an automatic , or your clutch pedal switch if you have a standard shift.

F 350 95 will not crank intermittent problem in cold weather


Ok , on those years ,the automatic has a plastic box on the driver side. This is the shift positioning sensor.
It tells the transmission if it is in drive neutral and so forth.
It is probably not telling the engine that it is safe to start from the neutral safety switch. One thing to try, Turn the key to the starter engage position, hold it there.
At the same time grab the gear shift and push it up hard or pull it down past neutral. See if the starter engages? Let me know if this helps, I have a few other ideas as well.
