You will need to adjust the auto shifter so the switch picks up that the car is in park and that will fix your problem

My 1991 ford escort won't turn over. Fully charged battery. any ideas?

There is no relay involved in the starter circuit of this vehicle . The micro switch you are talking about at the shifter has nothing to do with the starting circuiIt either . If you have a automatic transmission There is on the transmission the park neutral safety switch . Won't allow the vehicle to start unless the transmission is in park or neutral . Ford calls the switch manual lever position switch . Try moving the shift lever to netual to see if it starts .

This jag will start in any gear including reverse when the engine starts the Bendix does not go in starter continues to whine until taken out of gear rather put into gear

this statement is hard to understand as it is not logical
the engine will start in any gear--ok --- problem in the neutral/park switch
when the engine starts the bendix does not go in starter but continues to whine --exactly what do you mean --does the starter motor stay engaged in the ring gear after the engine starts or does it come out of engagement with the ring gear but continue to spin
as there is no connection between the gear selection and the starter motor can you explain the last part of tour statement

I have a 1988 2wd pickup and the starter won't

starter wont turn or engages the flext plate,flywheel and still wont turn engine over?if this is the case you have a seized up motor,but if it doesnt even click check signal wire from ignition switch for power when you turn the key to crank.if no power your ignition switch,park/neutral safety switch(clutch switch if manual trans) or wrongly installed wired could be the problem.

91 camary wont start

did you try jumping the solenoid at the starter to see if it turns?.
could be the neutral safety switch has failed or the ignition switch is bad.
1991 camrys did not come with engine immobilizers unless you have an after market alarm.

My 96 grand cherokee 4.0L cut out at the traffic lights and wont start, not even turning over.Dash lights all there, battery is up.Not even a click from starter.anyone any ideas?

OK do the head lights go out then you try to start the engine if yes then its the battery term on battery hot if so dirty fitting (wash with Hot water and spray and refit tight and recheck the lights and starting..
IF auto gearbox then check the Park switch on box it has 3 wires on the side of box.(Under car)
CHECK the Poss + wire on the battery and also the Black earth wire to engine (is it broken off engine as there is also a thin earth wire for battery term to body so the lights will work but the starter takes out a lot of amps and if earth lead isent on engine then it wont turn over.
Check the small wire to the starter motor solinoid as well as a lot are push on terms and have come off if not a tight fit.
So check out all above,,, and let me know how you get on Ron

Fuel prob. on jag.

ok.. get out the hammer after all... you need one person to start the car and one to lay under the car and whack the starter with a hammer.... if that doesn't work... before you light the car on fire... keep in mind i've never owned a jag hahahahaha

Wont start....

Hi mdntcowboy

I'm Dave

When you turn the key to the start position do you hear the click of the starter solenoid?

If you do either your starter is faulty or you do not have enough voltage to power the starter. Your lights do not need much voltage nor the solenoid however the starter requires 12.5 volts to start properly. If you do not hear the click check to see if the car is in park properly. The vehicle will not start if the car is not properly in park or neutral...try it in neutral. Check the starter relay, ignition switch, park/neutral start switch.
