Hi,

If the starter checks out OK when tested with no load (not driving the ring gear) and will spin but will not when installed, try checking:
1. the hearing/bushing at the ends of the armature;
2. carbon brushes;
3. commutator segments (the multiple small copper plates that the brush contacts with).

Of course, the above suggestions are based that the rest have checked out and the problem is limited to the starter itself. Initially, the solenoid would be the suspect but as you have posted this was tested good.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Interesting problem, on the starter is a "trigger" wire that originates from the ignition (may run to the power distribution center). When the truck is started 12 volts runs down that wire and activates the solinoid on the starter. Put a 12 volt test light on the trigger wire by the starter, have someone hit the key to start, test light should come on, if not chase wire back and look for a break in the wire or replace trigger wire.

I have run into this problem. The installation location of the starter is very critical to have a good ground. On the EJ25 motors the way the starter mounts with one bolt to the trans and the other through the trans to the block makes it difficult to get a really good ground. I would make sure you have a nice clean secure ground. Hope this solves your problem, nothing worse than having a Subie and not being able to use it. Good luck.

your barking up the wrong gum tree witht the starter motor ,you have an electrical supply problem on the battery terminal area with more than one wire connected or a dodgy earth cable from the engine to the chassis .i would be inclined to check and fit another earth cable from a good connection on the engine -(bell housing) and run it back to battery terminal to eliminate all posibilitys .before anything else ,make you own if you have to but only use copper cable .this is my last question for tonight ,have to go pick er indoors up from work now

Starter doesn't engage


Year make and model ?
Normally you have power to the large post from the battery, and then power on the small wire from the key switch when it is in the start position. The small wire energizes the solenoid and as the starter spins the bendix gear extends out.

Why won't it start?


There should be a clutch safety switch that prevents you from cranking the engine with the clutch engaged.
Have you checked the switch for power ?

It sounds like you have a bad actuator. This is attached to the starter and has a solonoid that pushes the starter motor gears into the engine gear. If the solonoid is faulty this may happen. Also check alignment of the same.

Starter problem- How do I check to see if the starter needs replaced?


check to see if your getting power from the battery to the starter and check the ignition signal wire while some one turns the key if your getting power there and the starter don't engage then the starter needs to be replaced also while someone trys to start it tap on the starter and see if you get a response but if your getting power to it and it don't work it's bad

Turn key wont start,new battery,good fuses,bench test starter ok?


Have you tried shifting into neutral to start? If yes then perhaps the key switch is bad. One other thing to check would be the starter relay.
