the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

SOURCE: I Starting problem...

if you notice this van should have a statrer solenoid on the fender as well as on the starter, clean the body of the solenoid on the fender area and make sure that the ground cable is secure and tight do not wiggle which is just making it loose if it is so go under the vehicle and make sure that the cable is tight

Try looking at the electric switch unit which is attached to the key switch cylinder via a metal rod. this part sometimes shorts out. it is located under the dash on the top of the stearing wheel shaft. 1 bolt and 2 small screws hold it on the column shaft. Hope this helps

SOURCE: starter just clicks, battery hot,when turning key

Yes your right its the soleniod, might need the wires cleaning up that connect to the starter motor sometimes they go rusty so the connection is not good enough, worth cleaning before you replace it.

Hey, I have a 2011 Polaris 850 touring. When I turn the key to start it it just clicks 1 time, every time I turn the key. I replaced the battery all electronic's work. I also had the starter tested and...


Check the solenoid. The solenoid is the real switch between the battery and the starter, the key switch only activates the solenoid. The click you're hearing is probably the solenoid trying to click in, if it's faulty it makes no contact and the starter will not turn.

Will not start, battery is new, it just clicks and nothing. turn it off, try again and nothing, try again and it starts


Try cleaning and tightening well the battery connections along with the battery wires to the solenoid and starter motor.

Bad connections and low voltage of 12 volts can result in this anomaly.

I have a question. If yor mower want turn over all you hear when you turn the key is the volt meter click. There is fire from battery to solenoid but on the other side of solenoid going to the starter no...


Hello Lynn,

Sounds like you have a problem on the key controlled side, so:

1. Power from the battery to the key switch? 6V or 12V I would guess.
2. With the key in the "Start" position, have you got voltage to the thin wire/small terminal on the solenoid?
3. Do you have a good ground from the starter motor to the chassis?
If all the above checks out then the control circuit for the starter should all be working A-OK & when you turn the key to the "Start" position you should be getting a good, strong "Click" from the solenoid.

So - on the starter circuit:

1. The HD cable feeding the solenoid should always have battery voltage on it?
2. When you operate the key you should hear the solenoid "Click" and the voltage from the HD feed cable should now be connected to the other HD terminal on the solenoid (these are the two you are shorting out with your screw driver to get the motor to turn the engine over).
3. If the solenoid is "Clicking" when you operate the key & the voltage from the main supply cable is being passed to the second HD terminal, but the motor is not operating, then you need to check your ground cable.

Hopefully by now you will have found & fixed the problem :)

If the click you hear is from the starter solenoid mounted on the starter, it could either be a bad starter or poor connections between battery and starter. Raise the hood and listen closely near the starter for the click, when someone turns the key to crank. If the click is from the starter solenoid, have starter tested or replaced. If click is from a relay under the hood, then the start circuit will have to be further diagnosed.

Do you hear a 'click' when the key is turned to start? Have someone try the key while you listen under the hood. It should be the starter solenoid clicking. You need either a test light or voltmeter to test further. One large terminal on the solenoid has the large wire from the battery positive, and should always show voltage/light at all times. Test the other side of the solenoid (large terminal) that is connected to the terminal on the starter motor. It should show light/voltage when the key is turned. If it doesn't, the solenoid must be replaced. If it does show light/voltage, then the starter motor is defective (probably brushes). If you get no click when turning the key, test the small terminal on the solenoid, you should see a voltage/light change when the key is turned. If you see a change, but no click, the solenoid coil is open or the case of the solenoid is not grounding where it is mounted. Try loosening the mounting and re-tighten. If no help, replace the solenoid. If you see no change at the small terminal, remove the wire from it and using a spare piece of wire, touch the small terminal to, first, the large terminal that the battery is connected to, then to the the mounting bolt for the solenoid. If the solenoid is good, the starter should operate with one of these two tests. In that case, the starter position of key switch is open--replace the ignition switch.

Everything turns on when key is turned, but engine doesnt turn, starter doesnt click, nothing...just recently replaced starter and alternator and nuetral switch (its a manual)..could it be the solenoid?


If you have verified that the battery has 12volts, and there is power 12V at the trigger wire on the solenoid with the key turned to start, likely the solenoid is bad...I'd question this though because the solenoid comes with the starter and therefore should be new. (defective?) If there's no power there, re-check what you replaced and also ignition switch.

The car has power but starter just clicks when turn the key its not the starter i took it out and had it rebuilt and replaced the battery any help would be very greatful


The solenoid for the starter may have bad power contacts. Older GM starters had the solenoid mounted to the starter itself. If this starter has just a heavy wire going to it, trace the wire to the solenoid--listen for the click while someone turns the key. Check the heavy wire on the other side of the solenoid which goes directly to the battery positive post. A voltmeter or test light is a handy tool for testing for voltage around the solenoid and the starter terminal.

1999 ford explorer-Solenoid switch location?


solenoid switch is on top of starter . thare is also a starter relay in the fuse box under the hood . find this relay and see if it clicks when the key is turned over.get someone to turn key while you put your finger on the relay if its clicking then the starter solenoid is bad,some of thesesolenoids must be replaced with the starter.
