You have no power from the switch to the starter. Check all you wiring that goes through the fire wall and look for burnt connections or just bad connections.

Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

Most of the time this is caused by the anti theft system. It disables the starter and leaves you stuck. This is very common on GM vehicles. Read up on this link for info, pictures, and "do it yourself" solutions to the problem.

All power windows don't work


Dealers-hmmph.
You may have to keep looking for another broken wire. To the driver's master switch, a tan wire looks like the hot wire (feed) for the switch. And a black wire is ground, originating at the master switch and going back into the cabin with the wire harness, and then to a nearby ground source, probably behind the left kick panel. If you pull the master switch off, key on,, check for power on the tan wire terminal of the switch connector. Use a test light or a voltmeter. Now if you have a hot wire on the connector, put one volt meter lead on the hot wire terminal and the negative lead onto the black wire terminal. If ground is good, voltmeter will read battery voltage. If ground is lost, voltmeter will show nothing. Same with test light-check for a hot wire with key on. If yes, put test light lead on hot wire and use probe to touch ground-if ground is good, tester will light up. Alternatively, you could remove the left kick panel and check the security of the ground to frame there.
The only place I know for a wiring diagram would be a repair manual. Haynes manuals are about the best (about $25 at parts stores), short of a factory service manual for big bucks.
If still no luck with windows, and no hot wire with key on, pull the circuit breaker for the windows on the fuse panel under dash. With key on,. one of those terminals for the circuit breaker should show power. Ground a test light and probe both terminals to check for power. If no power there, check under hood fuses or fuse links that feed the fuse box. If CB has power available, well, that's the feed for the tan wire-sounds like either the tan wire or the black ground wire may have a break. If power to switch, check ground wire.
As a last resort, try a new circuit breaker if powered at CB terminal but nothing at driver's switch. If power is to switch on tan wire, and ground is working, consider that you may have gotten a defective master switch-not likely, but known to happen.

Starter won't engage heat gauge goes across to hot when trying to start truck. What causes this?


Voltage drop? I'm guessing you don't have a voltmeter, so turn on the headlights and observe them as someone tries to start the truck. If the lights go out, bad connection at battery, starter, or ground. If the lights get dim, probably the starter-it's drawing power, just not working. If the lights don't change, check for power going to the starter solenoid on the small wire on the starter; voltmeter or test light, check if the small wire to the solenoid has power when key is held in start position-in crank position. There should be battery voltage there when the key is turned to crank. If so, the starter or solenoid is bad. If no power there to solenoid, power is lost somewhere between ignition switch and the starter wire.

1998 Honda Accord Won't Start


Park neutral safety switch maybe be the reason for the no crank ! Try putting the vehicle in park ,then try to crank the engine . Testing the electrical circuit is the best way to trouble shoot this problem , along with do a voltage drop test on the starter circuit ! This will test the battery cables an connections .
Starter Voltage Drop
How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit
Does it have a manual or automatic transmission ? Manual ? clutch switch . Looking at a wiring diagram I also see a starter cut relay !

When I turn on the key to start my 1986 toyota truck, it does nothing as if it has no battery. I put new battery. LIghts work, horn works but gauges don't work and it does nothing when I trun th


You need a wiring diagram to start your testing

Guessing won't get it,waste of time

It is old enough to be a fusible link corroded

Some things work some don't,starting circuit
included if not a bad starter & separate problem

You can solve almost looking at a wiring diagram
as you know what deosn't work

Won't start


How about corroded battery cables (internal)

Fusible Link wiring corroded & open circuit,does
everything electrical work except the starting circuit?

Turn key & have power to starter solenoid ?
Neutral Switch !
Ignition Switch !

Tough to guess without wiring diagrams,
to see where to start testing

Can't fix what you don't know you have

How do you check to see if fuel pump is bad on a 1988 ramcharger 5.2lter t.b.I. without having to physically taking it out of tank?


Hot wire it! Set a battery by rear of car and run jumper wires to the fuel pump connector.. Instant gratification !
You could almost do the same thing at the fuel pump relay with one short jumper wire: pull the relay out and jump the battery power feed there across to the fuel pump wire. Turn key on and pump should run. Be careful, make sure you do have a single hot line at the relay with key on, and don't put the jumper wire in the wrong slot, or there won't be anything left to play with. You'd have to know which terminal was the fuel pump wire leaving there and going to the pump.
Well, there are a couple of shadetree solutions, worked for me. I assumed from your post that you probably don't have a voltmeter, which if true, is only bad if you want to do any work on your truck yourself. 'Cuz taking the tank off is a thankless, dirty job, and a voltmeter could have saved the trouble by testing for power at the fuel pump connector when the engine was being cranked over. If the wire has power, only then would you know the pump has to be taken out. Good luck.

could be the neutral switch try and crank it while moving the shifter around also try and put power to the small terminal on the starter that will tell you if the starter is bad or the wiring or switches

My car won't start and I changed the battery


Without knowing what it is doing exactly I would say if it does nothing when you turn the key then you are probably looking at an ignition switch problem. If it cranks but doesn't start it will probably be a battery problem. Since you changed the battery thinking that might fix it I'm leaning towards the ignition. The thing you are looking for is attached to the bottom of your steering column and has a bunch of wires running to it. Simple to replace just detach the wire harness and unscrew reverse for install. The cost of box may be what gets you. I don't know what 1 for your vehicle would run so it may be reasonable enough. Hope I could help.
