Try starting with gear indicator in neutral if it starts replace your neutral start switch if this was helpful please leave me good feed back if it still wont crank I would suspect (1) low battery (2) bad or dirty battery conections (3) bad starter solonid or (4) Bad ignition switch.

I have a problem that the 40 amp fuse that sends a signal to motor solenoid of starter and then goes to negative which burns the fuse?


If it worked before you installed the new starter then the problem must be in the new starter. There should be a large gage wire going to the large stud on the solenoid and a small wire going to one of maybe two small studs on the solenoid. The small wire energizes the solenoid which shifts the starter pinion (gear) to the flywheel and energizes the starter motor. Check for proper wiring and make sure no wire is grounding out on the frame somewhere.

Turn key. starter engages flywheel engine start to turn over. Then starter disengages form flywheel but continues to spin without care actually starting.


There maybe a problem with starter motor? Some of the national brand auto stores will test starter for you. Of course, you have to take it off and take it to them.


You could take the starter off, lay it on the ground, Hook up jumper cables properly from starter to battery. The starter should kick-out the drive gear and spin. If starter drive gear kicks out and in, something is wrong. Anymore I replace starter solenoid and starter motor as an assembly.

It wouldn't hurt anything to check flywheel teeth while your at it.

I have 1995 maxima and the starter is good but its not sending a signal to engine for it to start


Starters don't send signals

The Solenoid on it gets battery voltage to
it's coil & then pulls in the contacts to power
the starter motor.

Your asking about the solenoid control circuit
Need a wiring diagram to start any testing of that
circuit

If that isn't the problem, then check for fuel pressure,
spark or injector pulse & the ignition switch & such

Need wiring diagrams at some point to understand
what you working on

2004 Sante fe 3.5L 2WD went out to go to work and wouldn't turn over, (assumed dead battery), went down and got new battery and installed, still wouldn't turn over, (assumed starter shot),removed...


TEST POWER LEADS TO STARTER FOR POWER
AT STARTER (BATTERY POSITIVE TO STARTER BATTERY NEGATIVE TO ENGINE BLOCK)
THEN TEST FOR SIGNAL POWER TO SELENOIDE ON STARTER
(KEY TURNED TO START POWER SHOULD GO TO SELENOIDE)
IF NO POWER TO SIGNAL WIRE CHECK FUSES AND RELAYS
ON STARTER CIRCUIT
IF THIS CHECKS OUT MAY BE AUTO TRANSMISSION NUTRAL PARK SWITCH
TRY TO START IN NUTRAL OR WHILE SHIFTING TRUE GEARS SLOWLY WITH SHIFTER
IF STANDARED CHECK NUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH

I have a 1999 Chevy Cavalier and when I went to start it the starter had a slight and quick grind to it in sound. Have any ideas?


The solenoid is staying engaged to long. That can either be from holding the ignition key in the start position for too long when starting the engine or the solenoid is going bad. The solenoid has a plunger that is attached to it and the starter gear shaft. When you turn the key to the start position it completes the circuit sending power to the solenoid which pushes the shaft and gear into the flywheel. That action then sends power to the starter motor that then turns the engine over. You will need to replace the starter. You can get a rebuilt one from any auto parts store for $80 to $120. A new one from the dealer will cost you at least $180 or more. There is a core charge for your old starter. Just bring it to the store either before or after installation and they will wave the core charge.

Installed new battery, still won't start...won't even turn over. Tested the curcuits and there is current?????


hi, if when you turn the key the engine dont even turn over then this is a good indication that the starter motor needs replacing.
If the car has manual gear box you could try putting it in 2nd gear then get some one to help push the car so that the engine turns this way slightly then try starting this sometimes gets it started also you could try hitting the starter motor with a hammer this may also get it started.
First check all fuses and replace any that are blown then try again if still no joy then check the wires going to the starter motor are secure if they are then its a good chance it needs replacing.

If you have a manual box then you could put the car in 2nd gear with the igniton switched on then get someone to give you a good push or tow you down the road, keep the clutch pushed to the floor untill you have got moving quite quick then release the clutch this should then turn the engine over and fire the engine up then the car will be running, this in its self may free up the starter motor allowing it to start but be warned it will happen again so get it replaced sooner rather that later.

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

If you have an auto box then make sure the shifter is in right place move it all the way up and down a few times then give it another try as sometimes if its slightly out of line it wont engage the starter motor.

I have a toyota camry 93 2.2l auto i just fit th gear box in and tried to start it it did not spin do u have pic of a set up was manual now i put auto thanks


Some times they have a different starter motor on the manual,So i would remove the starter and try and turn the engine with a prybay or large screwdriver,If it turns with the bar then the starter is the rong one for the flywheel.

Starting problem


check your starter motor wiring first there should be a wire of aroung 5mm thickness bolted to the starter solenoid that is your power from battery the other is one small wire which clips on, this one tells it to"go" when you turn the key if either is loose it will work sumtimes, also check your battery connections are secure and motor to car earth(s) are secure
