SOURCE: Problem with the clutch switch for '90 300zx

check your starter key switch on the steering column.
the contact for the starter is wired to the key selector.
you need the Factory Service Manual fot trace out the wire. In general, the starter wire is red, the current runs from the battery to the key switch then to starter motor.

If you have wired from stater to the battery directly, you are bypassing the key switch.
The clutch switch is mounted on the top side of the transmission near the converter housing. again, you need to located the FSM in order to figure out exactly where it is.

SOURCE: engine wont crank

im looking at that circuit , on the start relay on your radiator support , red is always hot via fusible link , purple to solenoid as you say , orange/black wire should be hot in run or start mode , if it is not the fuse for that wire is PCM/ABS 10 amp located fuse block in driver door jam , it does go through the nuetral saftey switch , the yellow wire going to the PCM must ground that relay to activate start mode . last note there is a PCM/CRANK fuse in the driver door jam also , 10 amp , if all this is good i would like to hear more . 1 more note about the nuetral saftey switch is the pink wire going in and the orange/black wire coming out should have continuity in park and nuetral ....let us know thanks

SOURCE: car wouldnt start replace ignition switch, clutch switch then starter worked for 2 days now starter clicks but wont start left overnight car starter but when turned off wont restart

sounds like there is a dead spot in the starter. i think the other stuff may not have needed to be replaced. when the car won't start, have someone try to start while you TAP the starter with a hammer.- probably the starter, though.

SOURCE: replaced starter on f350 7.3l wont crank nopower

There should be a starter relay up by the battery on the inner fender, right side of the vehicle. There is also a starter solenoid on the starter, correct? I'm going to ask if you have it in park, neutral or the clutch pushed in, if so still no crank? On the starter relay, on the fender, there are 2 large teminals and 1 small. With vehicle in park or neutral and brake set pull the small wire off and using a jumper lead put 12V to the small terminal, the engine should crank. If so now check and see if you have power to that small wire when you turn the key to start. If not it could be the neutral safety switch, clutch switch (manual trans) or the ignition switch. There is also a fusable link that comes off the starter relay that could have blown. Do you have power to the ignition, do the lights come on, on the dash, when you turn the key on? If so the fuseable link is probably OK. If it don't crank by jumping the starter relay the problem is between the relay and starter. That relay sends a signal to the starter solenoid.

We put the new starter on today, and the car still won't start. We are thinking it's the starter relay. What else can be wrong with the car? can you please help us we depend on that car. Thank you


There is no starter relay shown in a wiring diagram. The only thing between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid is the park/neutral switch (or the clutch pedal position switch on manuals).

Do the warning lights and gauges come on with key on? That would verify power is into the switch and being sent out. The small purple wire on the starter solenoid should have power on it when the key is held in start position. If it does, recheck your starter and battery connections. When the purple wire energizes the solenoid, the starter motor should crank the engine.
If no power on the purple wire in start, check the neutral safety switch or the clutch switch if a manual. The start wire out of the ignition switch is a yellow wire, and the wire from either safety switch to the starter solenoid is a purple wire.
(The power to the ignition switch is from the 50 amp Ignition fuse in the under hood fuse block.) See? The positive battery cable is connected to the starter, but not to the starter motor. When the key is in start, the hot purple wire energizes the solenoid and the battery cable is connected to the starter motor.

Have 98 grandam no power at purple wire at starter


Purple wire runs from Park/Neutral position switch (or clutch engage switch M/T transmission) straight to the starter solenoid. First, assuming 60A ignition switch fuse under the hood in the power distribution center good, check for 12V at YEL wire (from ignition switch) at the switch when ignition moved to START position. If 12V present at YEL, but absent at PPL (also in START position), replace the Park/Neutral switch. If no voltage present at YEL wire then must verify 12V at RED (242) to ignition switch next. If present replace ignition switch. Hope this helps.

Chevy Tahoe Intermittent No Crank


I will try to help, powell. Your start circuit from battery to ignition switch to starter-and back to battery. You may need to check every thing here, including the grounds, for a loose connection, or just possibly a failing part.
If only complaint is intermittent starter action, and no other problems with ignition switch, let's assume switch is good, so battery to ignition switch is good. Now from the switch, a yellow start wire goes to the instrument panel fuse block, to "crank" fuse #8 (10 amp), from there a purple wire goes to the safety switch. If manual it is a clutch pedal position switch (simple on/off switch-when clutch down switch is on). If automatic, purple wire goes to Transmission Range Switch on the transm.-in park or neutral the purple wire has continuity in and out of switch.
From that switch, the purple wire goes to the starter relay (under hood fuse-relay center). Now the relay: purple wire in start will energize the relay- wire goes to coil side of relay, and then coil side goes to ground. On relay power side, the power feed is a red wire-and it is the same red wire that initially sends power to the ignition switch. A 40 amp fuse in fuse-relay center sends power to ignition switch, and a splice goes to the starter relay as the power feed for relay. When relay is energized, contacts close, and power is sent from relay to the starter solenoid, again on a purple wire. When solenoid contacts close, starter motor is connected to the big battery cable on the starter.

There is your start circuit. try a new or different relay, try a new or test the clutch switch (or transm. range switch). Buy a $5 test light and use it to check where power is lost when starter won't operate. Hold key in start and check if fuse #8 is getting power. Check the safety switch, with key held in start, the purple wire should be hot. Check if relay has a power feed (pull relay out and check terminals) and if relay coil has a power signal in start. Check the relay's coil side ground. If that ground is intermittent, relay won't work.
When it won't start, use a test light, you should be able to find it.
Good luck.

93 corsica not starting


When you turn the key to on, does everything come on, all the dash and warning lights?
When you turn the key to cranking, power is sent to the solenoid mounted on the starter, through a small purple wire. This is what engages the starter. But the path from the ignition switch to that solenoid travels through a starter relay and a neutral safety switch(for automatics) or a clutch safety switch (for manual transaxles). Check for power with a testlight or voltmeter at that purple wire on the starter solenoid when someone holds the key in crank. If you have power there, the solenoid is bad, and starter needs to come out to replace the solenoid. Doesn't sound like that, though. Usually they make a clicking sound when, or before going out. I think maybe the relay is bad or the neutral safety switch may be your problem(or the clutch switch if you have a manual).
Good luck.

85' chevy manual truck ignition issues. won't start. i think its in the collumn somewhere. new keyswitch, starter,alternator, battery and cable ends.


When you say it won't start I assume you mean it will not turn over. Have you replaced the ignition switch? Not the key tumbler but the ignition switch. Have you checked the clutch safety switch?

My 99 Gmc jimmy will not start. the fuel pump is good the fuel filter is not clogged, i replaced the neutral safety switch, plugged in my code reader no codes, i believe it is the starter or the ignition...


Does it crank or not? If no crank then look at the starter or ignition switch. If crank but no start then look at the ignition system. Check for spark at the plugs and also check the fuel pressure. If there is spark try spraying a little starting fluid into the intake. See if it starts and stays running. If it stays running reply back and I will explain why.

Wont start


check the ignition switch. pull covering off of the column and check switches wires,
reds - should have +12 battery power
white - Ignition output
pink - ignition output
yellow - starter output

these wires are needed to start car.

from the switch the starter wire goes to and neutral position switch. located on transmission. yellow is starter in purple is starter output. if all that is good change the relay moun about the radiator. good luck
