Starter problem I got in my truck and turn the ignition and got nothing. the battery was fine so it had to be the starter or the solenoid. i took a hammer and banged on the starter and it cranked right up. i went to the parts store and purchased a new starter. i installed the starter and everything and the truck still wouldnt start up. wire started smoking in relay box on the firewall. Why wont my truck start up?

It sounds like a fault in the starter circuit. It could be a defective neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, or possible a defective ignition switch but I doubt it. Can you hear the starter solenoid??? I'm willing to bet the problem is either with starter relay, neutral safety switch, or starter solenoid.

1500 Ram wont start, no crank no click nothing. Air cond and dash lights work just fine just wont start. Battery is ok tried to jump, no luck, put in different battery no luck.


First thing is to check is the ignition fuse/relay under the hood for a blown fuse or bad relay. If everything is ok then set parking brake with truck in park/netural and have someone to turn the ignition over to start and at the same time use a test light to check for fire at the starter solenoid. If no fire then the ignition switch or netural switch on transmission is causing the problem. If you do have power to the starter solenoid then the problem would be either the solenoid or the starter drive locked up on the flywheel. Be sure to remove the negative wire from the battery if you need to remove the starter. Hope this will help you.

You may have a bad ignition switch or bad starter solenoid. I would check to see if the starter solenoid is getting power on the small wire when you turn the ignition switch to the starting position.

If you get power to the small wire on the solenoid, when you turn the key to the starting position, the ignition switch is ok and you may have a bad solenoid and/or starter. Most parts stores can test your starter. Also check the "crank" fuse and ignition fuses.

check starter for power on main battery wire and on smaller wire from ignition switch while someone turns the key if your getting power on both wires it's the starter if you want you can also tap on the starter and starter solenoid while the key is being turned and see if it starts but it does sound like starter to me if your not getting power to the starter on the small wire make sure your alarm isn't interfering and check ignition switch

Engine wont turn ovwer


Check battery terminals are clean and firmly connected.

Check the transmission neutral interlock switch operation is OK.
Check +12V is appearing on the starter solenoid control wire when the ignition switch is held in the 'start' position.

If above ok, apply +12v directly to the starter solenoid activation control -starter should immediately engage.
If it doesn't run, you likely have a faulty starter motor.

1991 Nissan 240SX starter will not turn!


If you've applied 12VDC to the solenoid and it does nothing, not even click, then the solenoid is toast!

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.
