You can jump across the celonoid on the starter. If the engine turns over then your problem is either the celonoid or the starter switch.

SOURCE: starter wont engage

The problem is either the starter solinoid (located on fender near battery) or you are not getting power to the "s" terminal on the starter solinoid from the ignition switch. If you follow the positive battery cable from the battery you'll follow it to the solinoid. Remove the small wire from the terminal marked "s" on the solinoid and using a screwdriver jump from "s" terminal (not the wire) to where positive battery cable connects to solinoid. (with battery connected). If starter doesn't do anything the solinoid is bad. If starter cranks then you are not getting voltage from ignition switch through "s" terminal wire.

try over riding the starter relay on the fender ,it has one there right?. dont go to a mechanic yet. the engine aint seized. if it doesnt have this relay then i would get the alternator tested. if you want to test it yourself it can be costly for the right equip. autozone usually tests for free. i dont know were you live so if theres not an autozone. let me know if you cant get it tested.

SOURCE: Car wont start, no power....not battery related

there will be some fusable links at the + of the battery they look like plane wire but have very soft insulation you will need a tester light or multimeter to chec if the power is going through them and have a look at the inside of the battery terms for yukky corosion one more thing check the cable giong to the body from the - term that it is connecting properly tp the body surface

SOURCE: STARTER WONT ENGAGE ONLY CLICKS UNDER HOOD STATER

If the clicking sound is coming from the engine bay, from the relay, you may want to have the starter itself checked out. You need to check if the ground cable from the engine to the chassis is secured. If that is OK, you may want to have the starter motor checked.

2004 windstar wont start plenty of power but wont start no clicking sounds


What year ? For the 2004 model year, the Windstar was renamed the Ford Freestar. Anti-theft light lit on instrument cluster ? Battery good ! How about the battery cables ? Voltage drop test the starting system . Videos on you tube Starter Voltage Drop
Starter System The starting system cranks the engine at a speed fast enough to permit the engine to start.
  • Heavy cables, connectors and switches are used because of the large current required by the starter motor (11002) while it cranks the engine.
  • The amount of resistance in the starting circuit must be kept to a minimum to provide maximum current for starter motor operation.
  • A discharged or damaged battery (10655), loose or corroded connections or partially broken cables will cause slower than normal cranking speeds and may prevent the starter motor from cranking the engine.
The starting system includes:
  • the permanent magnet gear-reduction starter motor with a solenoid-actuated drive.
  • the battery.
  • a starter switch (part of the ignition switch (11572)).
  • the transmission range (TR) sensor.
  • The TR sensor in the starter control circuit prevents operation of the starter motor unless the selector lever is in NEUTRAL or PARK.
  • Starter Relay-Interrupt The starter relay (14N089) interrupt-consists of:
    • pull-in coil and
    • contacts.
    When the ignition switch is in the START position:
    • Current passes through the starterrelay-interrupt from the engine compartment power distribution box to the starter solenoid (11390) .
    • Anti-theft controller module activates relay-interrupt.
    • Pull-in coil in the starter relay-interrupt is activated and pulls the contacts apart.
    The starter relay-interrupt is deactivated when the ignition switch is in the RUN or OFF position.

My car wont start, no turn over, all of the electronics work fine. I hear the fuel pump working. What could it be? I parked went in a store, came out and it just wouldn't start.


Possible defective starter motor. Try tapping on starter motor with a blunt object ( if accessible ) while holding the key in the crank position. If the engine starts, the starter motor is bad. If it doesn't, you will have to check for start power at the starter directly. Possible starter motor/starter relay/ wiring/ignition switch etc

Car wont start not the battery


Starter switch, starter relay, or starter motor. If it cranks, but don't start, check fuel pressure. If pressure is not good, then replace fuel filter, fuel pump relay, and/or fuel pump (in that order) If fuel pressure is ok, then its ignition. check and/or replace coil or igniton module.

Ford f100 starter diagram


You have starter relay on fender lining. A large post on either side of relay? You can take two long shank screwdrivers, touch each post, then touch the shanks. The starter motor should crank. If you try that make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. Battery has a full charge and battery connections all good? Starter motor is good? Engine isn't seized?
I couldn't get everything in one picture, there is the ignition switch and neutral or clutch switch depending on the tranny and wiring circuits.

My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it


Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer

1990 f150 pickup stater keep geting jamed


Test, hook up a starter relay switch, connecting one clamp to the positive battery, and the second clamp to the starter motor. Turn on the ignition switch, make sure tranny is Parked (or neutral if manual tranny).

On some truck/cars with manual tranny, the clutch MUST be depressed to close the circuit to the starter motor. When you hit the button on the starter relay switch, it closes a circuit to allow power from the battery to go to the starter motor. If starter doesn't turn, check the battery ground terminal to make sure its tight. Before you go out to buy a starter relay switch, check both the negative and positive battery clamps are tight. Check the ground end of the battery to make sure its also tight. The ground is often the chassis, or the engine block.

If the engine appears to crank over at the speed it normally did when it starts then the battery and starter are OK. If it cranks over slower try jump starting it from another vehicle, let the other car run for a few minutes first to charge up your battery. If the engine cranks over, an engine needs three things to start, mechanical integrity, the engine must be able to develop adequate compression, it must then get spark and fuel. Some basic diagnostic tests would have to be done to determine what is wrong.

95 jeep cherokee country 6 cyl auto. wont crank all the time


Bad solenoid i would guess. Not making a connection there. Any basic wiring and ignition switch problems should be alleviated by jumping the starter with a screwdriver. I would check the solenoid and starter brushes

2002 nissan altima wont crank?


Check the transmission neutral start inhibit switch is not the cause of your problem. (try both 'P' to 'N' positions).
If the headlights work ok there should be enough power in the battery to at least make a solenoid type noise when start is attempted- so it may not be caused by a faulty alternator.
Check the battery terminals are clean and firmly attached to the battery,
Check battery is properly grounded to the chassis and motor,
Check that +12v is available at the starter motor engage solenoid when the ignition switch is held in the 'start' position - check any start slave relay operation.
If all above is OK, you may have a faulty starter motor.
