Question about 2001 Mazda MPV

1 Answer

Starter Trouble Won't turn over, Batt cables get REAL hot while trying. New Battery installed, new Starter installed. When attempting to start - just: "click", When I keep trying again repeatedly, ("click", "click", "click", "click", "click", "click") she will seem to catch once and turn the engine just a little and stop. On the "click" that connects, the tachometer wakes up. The rest of the time, the tach is unresponsive. 86K miles, no collisions

It sounds like you have the Starter Solinoid Wires Crossed if the Battery cables are getting hot.

98 ford ranger turn over hard starts some time


Have you tried taking the serpentine belt off ? You could have a stuck pulley or accessory keeping the crank from turning.
Could be something with the transmission too.

Starter problem


wiring to the starter; large cable coming from the battery to the
large post on the starter is direct current, hot at all times. there are two small wires that connect to the solenoid, one comes from the ignition.
Look for loose connection especially ground. If you jumper the connection on the solenoid to the large connection on the battery and it starts, I would suspect fault in the ignition circuit...

1988 460 motorhome starting problem


When its hooked up, you should be able to put 12 volts on the little stud on the solenoid and it should start. One large stud will have 12 volts on it, so just jump it right there. Did you get the wires in the right place. The solenoid should have 1 large wire going down to the starter. Be sure the battery cables are clean and tight ( both ends) Check battery voltage when cranking, should go to 10-11 volts. Check voltage between negative terminal on battery and engine, should be ZERO when cranking. The solenoid has 2 large studs, make sure the battery positive wire and all the other wires are hooked to this stud, the other large stud should just have the wire going to the starter.

Get a clicking sound when I try to start my 1995 Nissan Pathfinder


Check ALL your connections. Take each Batt terminal off and scrape them or buy a Batt. brush from parts store/cheap 7 bucks. If you can jump it it may be the Batt. has just gone.. Clicking means you have a bad connection or the Batt is shot.

My 1998 Jimmy won't start. Just got a new starter. My battery is drain, when i use the jumper cables it still won't turn over.


with a new starter, this sounds like a bad battery cable or terminal end. the easier way to figure this out w/out checking the voltage drop across a whole battery cable is to affix the jumper cables strategically to find the bad one. Put jumper (+) on batt (+) and jumper (-) directly onto a piece of unpainted engine metal and not in the way of moving parts. If it starts this way then you've got a bad ground cable. If it didn't start, put jumper (+) on the hot post of the starter solenoid (there are 2 posts, only touch the one w/ the fatter cable going to it) or on a remote jump point if equipped, and put jumper (-) to batt (-). If it now starts you need a positive battery cable, or just a battery-to-starter cable (if separate)

Car wont turn over,tested the starter,replaced the starter relay,new batt cables and batt,still wont turn over


Try the ignition switch (the actual part with the keys). You can actually try starting the car without using the keys. You can do this by hot wiring.

Will not turn over with new batterie


check battery voatage with a volt meter. After verifying 12v or better at starter, check power at starter cable terminal and verify ground at block is good. Then put volt meter across both battery terminals and try to start car. If battery voltage shows 9.5 or less while attempting to crank, change starter.
(make sure that there is 12v at the starter trigger wire with key in "start" before replacng)
(By battery "hot" you mean it's charged, not getting hot, correct?)

Truck will only click when attempting to start. the starter relay,alternator,battery and coil ignition are all new.


May be that you starter is overheating. If the problem is intermitent and generaly occurs after driving for a while then it might be the trouble.
