Ok. I am assuming you checked your battery and the fact a push start worked - I would say it is not this. But just for double checking sake, you should have it checked either locally or with a multimeter for voltage. Should be 13 or so.

Next, check your fuses. I would suggest checking the maxi-fuses as these take on the bigger load. I do not know what your car is but google and find out where and what your maxi-fuses are, as well as how to check them if you are not sure. These are usually around the firewall, in the center.

Also, check your negative and positive lines. And, if you do find a blown maxi-fuse, check your batteries voltage again to make sure it didn't drain and needs recharging.

Do you have a Chip in the Key? if so that Could be the Problem,Ya see the chip is a resistor and if it looses its ELECTRONIC VALUE in its Case Resistance it wont start to test this Turn the Key in the ON posission then do the Screwdriver thing If it Starts Key is Good and Most Likely the Ignition (SWITCH) is Bad <<ELECTRICAL Side NOY LOCKEST SIDE For More Info Recontact Me

SOURCE: lights,horn work but car wont start

Troubleshoot the starter. If your battery is good, then you WILL have power...the lights will work, horn, etc, but....if the starter is toast...you need a starter.

I may not be all the way in park or the safety neutral switch in not working. Did you try and start it in Neutral? Also move your shifter around while the key is engauged and see if it will start.

I don't know what your problem is. I would suspect your solenoid as you suggest. It is easy checked with a volt ohm meter and a friend. (voltage always present on the battery side - voltage present on starter side when the key is turned to the start position)

Is this a manual or auto? I guess you know there is a switch on the clutch if it is manual - clutch MUST be depressed to start. Im sure you know this!

Check the solenoid. You could jump the solenoid with a auto grade jumper cable to double check your electric (volt/ohm) check.

2002Mazda 626 starter played out can i bypass the starter


Kind of hard to bypass the starter, it's what turns your motor over. You'd have to push-start it.
More likely it's a solenoid or simple bad wire.

Do the gauges and warning lights work with key on? If not, check fusible links, AM1 for ignition key power. If the gauges/warning lights work, the key switch has power, so you can follow it to the starter solenoid. The start wire out of the ignition switch is a black/white wire, this is the hot wire to the solenoid, and only has power when key is held in start. With automatics, there is only one switch-a neutral start switch- between the ignition switch and the solenoid on the starter .

With a manual transmission, the black-white start wire goes to both a starter relay and a clutch start switch (on the clutch pedal), those two work together to send the power on to the starter solenoid. So, no crank, good battery, power to key, follow the black/white wire, the start relay and the clutch switch, to the starter solenoid- a hot wire there turns the starter motor on.

When I turn the key nothing happens. The starter doesn&#39;t even try to draw power from the battery. However, if I by-pass the starter relay it will turn over the motor but will not provide spark or...


Hi! It sounds like a bad solenoid, or that you're not getting the 12 volts to the solenoid to engage the heavy amperage needed to turn thr starter motor.
When you say you bypass it,do you mean you are just crossing the large post of the solenoid with the battery cable connection at the starter?
When you turn the key,you should get 12 volts at least at the smaller post on the solenoid.If you have 12 volts there when the key is all the way to `start 'position,then the starter probably ought to be replaced.

1992 acura,my car wont start,not even cranck . head lights,and dashboard work, but dont cranck.


What happenes when you try to jump start the vehicle? If it starts - then it is most likely the battery or alternator. If it doesn't start then the solenoid or the starter or the engine. To get it down to the starter or engine - disconnect the serpentine belt and turn the crankshaft with a wrench. If it turns - then it is your starter/solenoid.

If there is no "clicking noises" at all first you have to bypass the Clutch Start Switch. To do so remove two wires from the Start Switch and connect them together.
If it doesn't work trouble shoot starter and solenoid. With a wire connected to (+) terminal of the battery power up the solenoid, at the thin wire contact of the starter. You need another person to help you, in the cabin turning the ignition key in ON and start position. If starter and solenoid are O.K this will start your car. If not you have to replace the starter + solenoid assembly. Good Luck.

on the relay there will be a small wire that gets power when you turn the key to the start position
find that wire and connect it to the small terminal of the starter solenoid
then if you get it right , when you turn the key to start, power will get to the starter solenoid , energize the solenoid and the starter will engage

Car wont start


Does the battery have enough capacity to turn over the engine though? Even flat car batteries will still power the radio. The best way would be to jump start the car uing a set of jumper leads. If it starts you know it is the battery that needs replacing.

If it still wont turn over then it is most likely the solenoid in your starter motor. You can often tap the starter motor with a hammer and free the solenoid as a temporary fix. The starter motor is loacted at the back of the engine on the bell housing if rear wheel drive, or around the tranmission if a front wheel drive.

Did you check your ground wire?If ground is good check to make sure your solenoid wire which is purple usually if it is broke if not get a test light and have someone turn motor over to crank position and check if power there if so more than likely ground problem.If solenoid has no power move to fuses under drivers dash..

If you've applied 12VDC to the solenoid and it does nothing, not even click, then the solenoid is toast!
