I dont think its the relay if it was the relay it wouldnt start at all ....does it crank at all do all the lights go out. you have to be more detaild from what you said it sounds like you have a bad connection.l

1985 cadillac eldorado wont start battery good all lights and power works


Check the wire harness a foot or two from the
battery, for corroded fusible links

May have to open up some harness a little

Make sure the starter hasn't failed

Try to put battery power directly to the starter solenoid,
to see if it turns over,be careful under there, with the key
on, if it starts

My Starter does not engage when I turn on the ignition of my 1985 Volvo 244. My lights work and my battery has been tested and is ok.


First,check your fusible link,your positive battery cable goes to starter and a fusible link is incorparated,it could be burnt or melted,not giving power to starter,if link is good then here's how to remove and take to Autozone to have tested,it's free and only takes a few minutes.

85 ford tempo injector curcit has no power, checked curit with nod light and did not get a power response. cloud you try to help


  • There is a fuse panel located behind the left hand side of the instrument panel. Check to see if the fuel injector fuse is good. Should the fuse look good then it is time to get out the multi meter or test light and diagnose the harness. I have put up a diagram and a description of the the points to check. Sometimes it comes down to diagnosing. Check the fuse first.

  • Fusible link C, Fusible link G, Fusible link J, Fusible link P, Fusible link R supply power to the EFI system.

  1. Fuse Link A: At LH Strut Tower.
  2. Fuse Link B: At LH Strut Tower.
  3. Fuse Link C: LH Side Of Engine Compartment, At Starter Relay.

  5. Fuse Link E: At LH Strut Tower.
  6. Fuse Link F: LH Side Of Engine Compartment, At Starter Relay.
  7. Fuse Link G: Front Of LH Strut Tower, In Tape Out To C107.
  8. Fuse Link H: At LH Strut Tower.
  9. Fuse Link J: LH Side Of Engine Compartment, At Starter Relay.
  10. Fuse Link P: LH Rear Of Engine Compartment, In Tape Out To C106.

Have an 1985 mercury grand marquis have power to the ing swtich lights everything works except the starter no electric to the coil also I was told it is the starter relay not soiloid but, relay I can not...


You may want to start looking for a fusible link that might have burned.Sometimes they are located down by the starter and sometimes under the hood depending on the manufacturer. A fusible link looks like a plain wire but is indeed a fuse link and acts just like a regular fuse sometimes you will be able to see where it burnt through the insulation and sometimes you wont thats why i pull genlty on the wires and see which one starts to stretch.
