Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

1998 S-10 will not turn over

I just replaced the starter on my s-10, and after I got it all bolted back together turn the key no click no nothing. My solenoid is tripping so I'm assuming I'm getting power that far. I jumped the starter and it turned right over, but I had the starter tested anyway. I traced the line all the way to the fuse box, sliced a small amount of the insulating wire off to test, and no power outside of the fuse box. Replace the relay right. Nothing. Any ideas?

SOURCE: chevy tahoe won't turnover, power

Next time it won't start turn headlights on and see if they dim when you turn key to start, if they dim its most likely starter, if they don't dim possible starter switch, Have you tried to start it in neutral position? Try that, if it starts in neutral than its park neutral switch, if not could be starter switch, Just make sure you chk. all fuses and any relays associated with ignition first.

The batteries on my panterra are charged, yet i turn the key and nothing. Can I by bpass the key?/


Thew red battery cable goes to a relay which engages the starter. When you turn the key the relay should click and engage the starter. If it is a one wire relay pull the wire off and use a screw driver or similar tool to jump form the batter terminal on relay to the bolt like thing the wire was on. This should engage the relay and starter. If it does not then the relay needs to be replaced.

Turn key to start and nothing


Low or dead battery most likely, use this procedure to trouble shoot the system:
READ THIS ALL BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING
NOTE: some vehicles have the starter relay and starter mounted together as 1 unit. Sometimes the starter relay and starter are seperate. When I refer to "relay" it could also mean the starter and relay as 1 unit.
Note: "starter switch" is not to be confused with "key switch", although sometimes they are all one unit. The starter switch is usually mounted on the steering column and actuated by a metal rod. On units that are all one unit, the keyswitch/starter switch (both one unit) will have to be replaced. (this is a rare problem, so don't get worried just yet)
1. Check battery voltage, should be between 12.5-14.5 volts. if low voltage replace or charge battery, and try to start car, if it don't crank with new or charged battery, move on.
2. Check connections on the starter relay, even the small one coming from your starter switch. if loose or corroded, clean with a brush and reconnect them. Try to start your car. Did it start? if not, Move on
3. Well now we know the connections aren't the problem. How about a click? did you hear one? If a click is heard, go to #4, if nothing is heard, go to #5
4. Well at least the relay is clicking, but nothing else is going on. The relay is working, so the starter must be bad. Replace the starter and start your car!
5. Humm, connections aren't the problem, maybe the relay is bad, replace your relay with a new one. Move on
6. Now we have a new relay, with clean and tight connections. Start your car. Does it start? If yes, then HORRAY! we fixed it. Does it click? If so then goto #7, If it don't click, then goto #8
7. So here we have a new relay, with good connections that will click when trying to start the car, but nothing else happens. Starter is faulty, replace the starter, and off you go, see ya!
8. So here we have a new relay, with good connections, but it still won't click when we try to start our car. This means that your starter switch is faulty. Replace starter switch and try to start your car. Vroom! finally done with this car problem!
List of shortcuts: if you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the relay and apply +12v to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. You can actually hook up a starter button this way. If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken.

Turned key 2 start car, it did not click, fire, or make any sound, but headlights,dashlights,& open door beeps all work.


Since you have power it is likely not a battery problem.
The selonoid on the starter may have gone bad if there is no click sound when the key is turned.

In some cases the selonoid can be replaced seperate from the starter, but often it requires replacing the entire starter assembly.

You may also wish to check the voltage at the starter to make sure it is not a wireing problem.

Starters are not overly difficult to replace on your own if you are handy with some tools and have time to spend underneath the vehicle. Often it is only held in place with 2 bolts and 2 wires.

There is often little to zero warning when the solenoid goes bad.

1992 toyota celica wont start makes clicking noise replaced the battery still happens. how can i tell if starter motor is good


It is your starter. They are easy to replace. You could try tapping on the starter with a hammer while cranking to get it to turn. The other option is to add more power too it by jumping it and see if that works. If it starts by doing either of those things, its your starter. Wrecking yards would have them cheap. Good luck

Check the voltage to the starter. You might not be able to get enough if the writes are too corroded. Might need to replace to damaged parts of wires

When i turn my key all i hear is a click is that my starter?


A single click is the solenoid on the starter engaging. This is a pretty typical symptom of a bad starter if everything else seems normal.

Rapid repeated clicking while the key is in the crank position is a good sign the battery is to weak to turn the engine over.

Back to the single click. Try turning the key to the crank position rapidly and repeatedly. Sometimes this will make the starter work wich will also confirm that it is bad.

93 buick lesabre 3.8 liter starter replaced,new one just clicks


Given the steps you have taken, only one of two things this can be is a resistive connection between the battery and the starter solenoid terminal. Or the battery itself has a bad internal connection. Bear in mind: you cannot crank the engine through the average set of jumper cables unless the battery in the dead vehicle will hold and deliver a good charge. Jumper cables are not really intended to start the car, they are for boosting the good, but low battery in the car being jumped.
