Question about 1995 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

Starter The starter will only engage with the key after I have jumped the poles on the solonoid with a screw driver. Then the car will start for a while with a key. Do I need to replace my whole starter?

How do I bypass my starter for a 2002 chevy s10 where is the starter and what do I touch with a screw driver this is temporary till payday


From the positive pole of the battery, a solid wire goes to the starter relay, and from there to the starter.
Turn on contact, jump the power from the battery + to the starter.

I have a 87 f150 4x4 wont start with the key has new starter,solonoid switch and new ignition switch but it starts fine when I jump the solonoid


If you are saying that the vehicle will turn over only when jump started and nothing when not connected to another vehicle then I would check the earth connection from battery!

Ford Escape 2008 inconsistently starts.


Sometimes the starter switch solonoid on the right side fender wall works intermittent. Very easy to replace and does not cost very much --- has two poles that supply voltage to starter and one small pole that supplies voltage from the key when energized --- when voltage from key is supplied the solonoid snaps closed supplying voltage to starter to start the engine-- most autopart companies will sell a generic brand for less than 20 dollars. Otherwise it may be in the steering Column. to test this you will need test light to determine that everytime to turn the key power goes over to that original solonoid -- if not it may be in the steering Column

1978 super beetle won't crank. battery good. turn key, hear faint humming sound, nothing from engine


think you may have a faulty starter motor here ,this year vehicle will be of the pre engaged type so no seperate heavy duty solonoid unlike older cars ,i would expect a click of the solonoid and nothing if the starter has burnt out but its possible that the solonoid on top of the starter has failed but without a look myself and only a description i cannot diagnose correctly .Try some jump leads just to be sure it isnt a flat battery then check the engine earth to chassis cable then remove the starter motor and have it checked out

Starter staying engaged after starting on 2005 malibu ls


check to engagement wire at the starter, make sure that power is only present when key is in the start position.if this is the case, then your sarter bendix is hanging up on the flywheel, this is caused by either inproper shiming where the starter is bolted to the block, or having the wrong bendix on the starter, there or several different bendix s general motors uses, also if the return spring in the solonoid is broken or not strong enough the starter could hang up. if the problem is power continuing to feed the solonoid with the key in the run position you could have a bad or out of adjustment ignition switch, since the power feeds the solonoid directly from the ignition switch, other than the neutral switch on the colomn

It sounds like you have a bad actuator. This is attached to the starter and has a solonoid that pushes the starter motor gears into the engine gear. If the solonoid is faulty this may happen. Also check alignment of the same.

It sure sounds like the switch, but it may be the key cylinder binding. If the key turns to the same place it used to then replace the switch. If it dosen't then replace the key cylinder.

F 150 starts and starter stays engaged unplug alternator starts ok but no charge


2 problems, first you have bad starter or starter relay for starter staying engaged, keep alt plugged in has nothing to do with starter staying engauged, to test starter relay, jump at relay bat + post with red/bk wire on solonoid, if cranks over without staying engaged, then not relay or starter but rather in your ign switch, ford had bad problems with ign switch some years ago doing that
