My suggestion would be to find a repair manual at your local auto parts store. Otherwise, it would take a long time to list every step to do so.

Whats happends if you take it in to get the starter fixed on it how long does it take? Also when I got it back from the Auto shop My tape radio does not work and says loc does not even turn on. It was...

q1; time to fix, (fix can be 25 things wrong, and each FIX is diffrent times)
a dead starter can be 5min fix to 2 hours.(replaced)
is the battery good, and charged? if not , its not the starter.
if battery is good, then its the start system, it is a system of wires and solenoid and starter. ( does the starter hot wire and work?)
if yes, its not a bad starter. (hot wired at the solenoid)
took me 2hrs to replace a starter, and 1hr second time.
depends on, if bolts are seized, or bad, or wont budge.
if you live in the SALT belt, it can be a real hard job.
q2: dead head, the radio (tape, wow tape, is like old tech) is dead?
tape and A/M and F/M are dead?
well, you apply power to it , and if dead, it is. time for new Radio,etc.
yes there is a fuse.
is your radio programmable. ? sure it is.
when replacing a battery, or starter, one kills the radio program storage. that is norm effect, unless mech has my magic tool that stops that.
few have the magic tool, a cig lighter plug with a 9v battery inside.
also , you lose alarm programming, and any other fancy gear that needs battery to hold programming..
there are only 3 costs.
1: diagnosis.
2: parts
3: labor.
all 3 vary by LOCATION.

Where is the starter located on a 2002 Chevy Suburban? How do I replace it?

    Removing the Starter
  1. Step 1 Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Disconnect the battery by unscrewing the positive and negative terminals. This will prevent the risk of electrical shock.
  2. Step 2 Crawl under the passenger side of the truck and locate the starter. The starter is positioned between the transmission and the engine.
  3. Step 3 Unbolt the negative and positive wires from the starter with a socket wrench. Take the nut off the stud and pull the wires off the stud. Repeat the same for the positive wire.
  4. Step 4 Unscrew the two bolts holding the starter to the frame. Wiggle the starter to work it free from the flywheel.
    Installing the Starter
  5. Step 1 Position the new starter onto the frame. Tighten the bolts to secure the starter in place.
  6. Step 2 Unscrew the nut on the positive stud and push the positive wire down on the stud. Tighten the nut on the stud to secure the positive wires.
  7. Step 3 Unscrew the nut on the negative stud. Push the negative wire on the stud and tighten the nut to the stud to secure the wire.
  8. Step 4 Connect the battery cables to the terminals. Ensure the positive wire connects to the positive terminal. Ensure the negative wire connects to the negative terminal.
  9. Step 5 Start the truck to ensure the starter is functioning correctly. The starter should catch as soon as you turn the key and start the truck.

Won't turn over like a dead battery but battery is

The starter is malfunctioning at this time. it could also be a ignition switch issue, as well. here is a quick starter test procedure that will help you troubleshoot a bit.

Step 1
Check for 12 volts on the large wire attached to the top terminal on the starter relay. It should have battery voltage. If not, the battery, terminals or wire is bad.

Step 2
Check the small wire on the solenoid for power when the key is in the start position. Remove the small wire on the solenoid and have a helper hold the key in the start position. Check the wire for battery voltage. If there is voltage, the starter is bad. If there is no voltage, replace the wire.

Step 3
Check the fuse in the fuse box under the hood on the left fender well(The location of the fuse box may vary from vehicle to vehicle. Check your manual for the correct location if needed). If it is good, check the relay by pulling it out and checking for power at one terminal with the key off. If there is no power, the problem is in the fuse box between the fuse and the relay. If there is power, have the helper hold the key in the start position once again and check for power at another terminal from the ignition key. If there is power, the relay is bad. If there is no power, the starter circuit is suspect.

Step 4
Check to see if there is power to the neutral safety switch if there is no power at the relay. Use the voltmeter to check for power with the key in start. If there is power going in, check for power going out. If there is no power going in, the security system or ignition switch is suspect. If there is power going in and none coming out, the switch is bad. If there is power coming out, the problem is between the neutral switch and the relay.

Step 5
Remove the cover on the bottom of the steering column. Check the solid yellow wire for power when the key is in the start position. If there is no power, the ignition switch is bad.

Starter location 2003 Ford Excursion 7.3 L D

Look on the rear lower end of engine--Follow + battery cable.

If you can get leverage laying on your back to unbolt the old starter, slide under there. Your new starter should have step-by-step install directions. ALWAYS disconnect the battery when replacing a starter. Good Luck!

97 audi a4 no power/battery fuse?

Sounds like either the battery leads are on the wrong way round, or the starter main cable is touching something and shorting to earth. Retrace your steps and check your connection locations.
Either that or its a dead short through the starter. Remove main cable from back of starter and tape up incase of short. then reconnect battery. If ok now then your looking at starter motor.
