Fusable Link Should be Checked with Test Light. The Problem is Obviously a Power feed Problem Check the Power at the Solinoid there has to be an OPEN Power Supply Wire somewhere there ,Also check BODY GROUNDS,

No key switch can still use the electrical end but car will not turn over but you can pull start it


first you have to make sure full batt power available, second turn the key (if any) to on position . third jump contacts on the starter motor to create power circulation and hear if starter o selonoid works.

Replaced starter and sylinoid in my 1989 f250 still wont start


If the old solenoid had a bad short it may have put your new starter out of commission. Have the starter tested-it should still have warranty for repllacement.

When i turn the key nothing happens also has new battery


check for power at starter and also check for power on ignition wire on starter selonoid while ignition is turned to start position. be cautious as it could engage. do you have power to trk radio,lights etc?? If not then check all batt cables connections to batt and grounds and to starter. also check fuses for a starter relay.

I had the same problem...My brother-in-law changed the starter and it fixed the problem. I had no clicking either-only lights, stereo, etc. It was the starter.

Car wont start, acts like battery is dead. battery shows full charge. full lights, buzzers, etc. put it on charger-didnt start...cleaned cable connections-didnt start...tried to jump with truck-didnt...


Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.

2000 reg clio 1.2 and SOMETIMES it will not start.


Hi, if when you turn the key to start the car the engine dont turn over as if its trying to start then this indicates that you have a problem with your starter motor it is the selanoid on the starter starting to fail

Sometimes it will turn the engine over starting the car and other times it will do nothing and you might here a slight clocking noise coming from the starter motor.

If your battery is ok and holds the charge ie the lights are bright without the car running then this indicates that your battery is ok and that the starter needs replacing. Sometimes you can get away with giving the starter motor a few taps with a hammer this sometimes clears any muck inside the starter selonoid getting it working for a bit longer but eventually it wont work at all so its best ot get this done sooner rather that later.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Starter stays enguaged


Hello;
The problem you are encountering is the starter it self. Sometimes the starter will hang up due to age, corrosion, etc. The solenoid you replaced was new? I had the same problem with my 66 Mustang and whacked the starter to clear it up and has been working great since. Hope this helps;
Thanks and rate me high;
