Replace the starter relay in the engine compartment fuse box.... before you do that recheck the wiring on the starter itself.

1998 massey 1250 diesel tractor has a new battery but will not turn over. When you turn the key everything go off and does not turn the starter


Question ,was it running before this happened

If so ,try and turn the crank shaft ,if it turns then the problem is either a battery cable , check connections at battery and starter and also the ground .

If this fails , take a pair of jumper cables hook to battery with out battery cables hooked up .

Then hook ground from jumper cables to frame and positive to large stud on starter solinoid , take screw driver touch large post of starter to small post on starter solenoid if it just clicks or does nothing replace starter.

Be very careful these are large amperage's your working with ,and can be dangerous ! if not comfortable with this method then just take starter out and have it tested in town.

Well, if your starter starts to turn when you hook the battery cable up, then you have hooked the cable to the wrong post on the starter. You have two large posts and one small post on the starter solenoid, the battery cable goes on the large post that has nothing else hooked to it. The other large post should have a large braided cable going into the starter motor housing. If the starter still will not turn the engine over when it is wired correctly then you will need to look closer at the flywheel ring gear.

Why would 350 engine start turning over when i hook battery cable up with key off?


You said motor my guess is that you pinched the small terminal wire on the starter solenoid or maybe bent the heat shield on the starter when the wires or terminals are closed or shorted the starter cranks check there 1st and then back track the wires up from there

The first thing to do is get a "load test" on the battery to make sure it is good. A battery can look good on a voltage test but not be able to perform. A fully charged battery should read 14.2 V or so. If it drops to around 11.5V on the load test it should be replaced especially if it doesn't bounce back to 14V.
When you hook the second battery into the system, if your key is on then your starter is using 24V to try to start. The starter and solenoid are bad. If your key is off then the most likely culprit would be the power cable from the battery to the starter and probably the solenoid.Replace the cable and make sure that you clean all the wire connections to bare shiny metal. Poor contact can also create problems If you still have trouble change the starter and solenoid both because you usually have to take the starter off a few months later to change it too, if you just do the solenoid. Hope this helps.

When you go to start the car it just wants to keep turning over so i pump the gas pedal and it will start. already replaced plugs and wires, air and fuel filter and fuel pump. car runs fine down the road....


sounds like a bad starter or sylenoid problem. the gas should not have anything to do with starting.
check the throttle cable for any obstructions.
i have seen some cases where the key does not come back in the run position. after you turn it over and it starts, try moving the key back,(like in the run position)(should be just a little nudge).
you will have to take the starter off the car to get it checked. after you get the starter off the car, you can take a pair of jumper cable from the battery to the hot of the starter and the black cable to the ground on the starter. note; hook the starter up first then the battery, for after a second or two, you will have to unhook one of the cables from the battery. after the starter kicks in,does it want to stick ,whinning noise, or sounds ok.

STARTER WON'T STOP


If its a new starter check and see that the wires are hooked up right, could be time for a new starter, or starter relay on the fender well, or the ignition switch is bad.

THE PROBLEMS IN YOUR CAR COULD BE A BAD KEY TRY ANOTHER KEY YOUR CAR HAS THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE SYSTEM BEST TO HAVE CAR SCAN TO CHECK THE THEFT SECURITY MODULE AND THE TRANSMISSION NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH IF ITS BAD STARTER WONT WORK.ALSO CHECK THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE RELAY. BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY CABLES TURN OFF RADIO SO YOU WONT LOSE YOUR RADIO PLAYING CODE.

Changing StarterIts easy, jack the car up, secure the car with in the up position do not just rely on the jack to hold it up and you will see the starter on the passenger side of the car, its held on with 2 bolts. Disconnect the battery first, then loosen and remove the 2 bolts holding the starter in place. Slide the starter out, disconnect the wires coming from the battery.

MOTOR OPERTAES WITHOUT KEY


your starter,solenoid or ignition is no good. but my first choice,i think your solenoid is shorted because when you hook up the battery,it cranks but does not start.that means your ignition switch is still working.

2000 ford truck starting problems


most likley the positive wire has corroded off the starter. look at the small red wire more closely, if theres alot of corosion, replace the wire (and starter if needed) if you dont see much corrosion give the wire a good tug just to see if it really is hooked up well. you should disconnect the batt. before doing any of this.hope this helps and good luck
