Yes this could be it and it is normally attached to the side of the starter itself. I would also do an idiot check on the fuses first though.

Remove the battery terminals and clean them real well and tighten them back on the posts. If you have a bad connection here, you will get the problem you described. When you are done, go ahead and put your starter back in. While you are down there, check the voltage on the thick wire supplying battery voltage to the starter make sure it is 12V. Try to start the car and get back to me.

SOURCE: 2004 F-250, 5.4l gas. Won't start or even crank.

are you referring to the starter relay on the firewall? the voltage should drop to 0 when measuring across the signal path because the connection is made, essentially making it a piece of wire and there is no difference in potential between the two points. is there 12v to the starter motor? is the starter solenoid (located on the starter) receiving 12v? check fuses and fusible links. disconnect hot leads from the starter. remove the starter, and supply 12v directly to the motor. does the pinon gear extend and spin? starter.

No start just one click in 1995 buick lesabre


First-how old is the battery?

They can last 4 years or 9

You test the battery when fully charged for voltage,
then load test it

New battery or old one- you move on to test the starter

No parts every go into a car until you know how to test
them & they fail a test

So a Repair Shop is your most logical choice

Where is the starter located on 1994 Buick Lesabre


You should probably have it fixed. I have a 98' LeSabre and am
wondering why the engine keeps blowing up. I have changed it
3 times now. Keep checking fluids and everything but still not having
any luck. So i hope the help i gave helps you.

My 1990 Buick Lesabre will not start, I turn the key and it makes no noise at all, doesnt even try to turn over; All the lights turn on, radio plays, ect so I dont think its the battery. Any ideas?


Well, sometimes the lights, the radio, and other accessories will work, but the battery is not strong enough to operate the solenoid. May require charging to get it up to over 12 to 12.6 volts.

However, if the battery is good, and the connections are clean and tight, then I would say the starter has gone bad. The solenoid's plunger is not engaging with the flywheel, and the solenoid is not connecting the circuit that needs to be connected in order for the starter to get full current to its windings and turn the flywheel.

I think it may need a starter, then.

98 buick lesabre starter


The starter is on the front of the engine, towards the transmission.
There are only two bolts and two nuts that hold it in.

The nuts hold two wires to the starter, one is connected to the positive battery terminal, the other is to engage the starter solenoid.

First disconnect the positive main wire at the battery.
Then, remove the large and small nuts holding both wires onto the starter. Be careful, since the large nut is copper and easy to strip.

There is a black plastic cover that goes behind the starter between the engine and transmission and may interfere with removal. There are three screws that hold it on. There are two that are easily seen on the larger portion, and one hidden very near to the front of the starter. It might be hard to see without a flashlight.

After removing the plastic cover, you should be able to loosen and remove the two large bolts holding the starter in.

Hope this helps, if you have any questions post again!

98 lesabre grinding starter


most likely your bendex wheel in the starter is not engaging the flywheel this could be due to a bad solenoid on the starter. chances are it's a bad starter, i would check to make sure all connections to starter are tight and you have atleast 11.5 -12.5 volts of current in the battery. low voltage can cause this problem as well
