2013 ford fiesta will not crank, battery tested(good), checking fuses-where is ignition or starter fuse to jump with wire to check if good or bad starter?

is the immobiliser light off ? the immobilizer controls the starting. if there is no click from the starter motor i would check this first, as the immobilizer sends low volts to a coil in the starter motor then this moves a pin to contact the connection for the motor to turn, the pin can wear out and it will click but not start.

2005 jaguar VDP 4.0L. Very hard start. Have replaced map and crank sensor, egr valve and intake.

in what way is it hard to start does the engine turn over fast or slow, fast is low compression in the piston chambers slow can be the battery or the starter motor wearing out. ( starter motor has bushes to turn the motor these wear out and cannot turn the engine over fast enough to start.

Can anyone tell me where I can locate the starter? A picture would be extremely helpful. Thank you

The starter motor is always attached to the gear box at the end wear it connects to the Engine, depending on you care transmit ion system, if it's manual it's on the clutch end sometimes on older cars called the bell end due to it's shape , the Automatic gear box is the same but contains a fluid torque converter, the starter motor locates into the large ring gear that sit around the outer edge of the clutch flywheel assembly on both types of gear box's, hope this is of some help to you.

Good Luck

A 93 Ford Taurus Sh 0 Starter problems the end of the starter that goes into the bellhousing had wear and tear on it does that mean it was misaligned or not torqued down correctly also the starter seems to...

if the starter was misaligned it would make terrible noise when cranking the motor. check the flywheel teeth as if its worn can cause wear on the starter, to fix flywheel and starter replacement is required. check the threads in the bell housing and on the bolts if they are worn can cause bolt looseness. try putting locktite blue on the threads when reassembling.

Where is starter located on a 1999 Plymouth Prowler

  • If your testing indicates that the starter must be removed, the first step is to disconnect the negative cable at the battery.
  • It may be necessary to place the vehicle on a lift to gain access to the starter. Before lifting the vehicle, disconnect all wires, fasteners, and so on that can be reached from under the hood.
  • Disconnect the wires leading to the solenoid terminals.
  • To avoid confusion when reinstalling the starter, it is wise to mark the wires so they can be reinstalled on their correct terminals.
  • On some vehicles you may need to disconnect the exhaust system to be able to remove the starter.
  • Loosen the starter mounting bolts and remove all but one.
  • Support the starter while removing the remaining bolt.
  • Then pull the starter out and away from the flywheel.
  • Once the starter is free, remove the last bolt and the starter.
  • Once the starter is out, inspect the starter drive pinion gear and the flywheel ring gear.

  • When the teeth of the starter drive are abnormally worn, make sure you inspect the entire circumference of the flywheel.
  • If the starter drive or the flywheel ring gear show signs of wear or damage, they must be replaced.
  • Reverse the procedure to install the starter.
  • Make sure all electrical connections are tight.
  • If you are installing a new or remanufactured starter, sand away the paint at the mounting point before installing it. Also, make sure you have a good hold on the starter while installing it.
  • Many General Motors' starters use shims between the starter and the mounting pad.

  • To check this clearance, install the starter and insert a flat blade screwdriver into the access slot on the side of the drive housing. Pry the drive pinion gear into the engaged position.
  • Use a wire feeler gauge or a piece of 0.020-inch (0.5080-mm) diameter wire to check the clearance between the gears.
f17-28.gif Checking the clearance between the pinion gear and the ring gear.
  • If the clearance between the two gears is incorrect, shims will need to be added or subtracted to bring the clearance within specs.
  • If the clearance is excessive, the starter will produce a high-pitched whine while it is cranking the engine.
  • If the clearance is too small, the starter will make a high-pitched whine after the engine starts and the ignition switch is returned to the RUN position.
  • Every starter should be bench tested after it is removed and before it is installed. to conduct a free speed or load test on a starter, see the free speed test.

Fig. 7: Disengage the solenoid wiring connector, then the battery positive (B+) nut and wire from the starter motor


Fig. 8: Remove the 3 starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolts


Fig. 9: Remove the starter motor from the vehicle


Fig. 10: After removing the starter motor, examine the teeth of the flywheel for excessive wear or damage. Repair if necessary


Fig. 11: If the old starter is going to be re-installed, check the condition of the pinion gear teeth. Replace the starter if the pinion gear shows excessive wear or damage
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle securely on jackstands.
  3. Disengage the solenoid wiring connector from the terminal. This connection may be held in place by a retaining nut, or it could be a push-in connector.
  4. Remove the B+ nut and wire from the starter motor terminal.
  5. Remove the starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolts.
  6. Remove the starter from the vehicle. If equipped, remove the starter motor spacer.
To install:
  1. If equipped, hold the starter motor spacer in position.
  2. Install the starter motor into position on the vehicle.
  3. Install the starter motor-to-transaxle bellhousing mounting bolts. Tighten the mounting bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  4. Engage the solenoid wiring connector onto the starter terminal.
  5. Connect the B+ wire and tighten the retaining nut to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  6. Lower the vehicle.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.
  8. Verify starter motor operation.

Hope this help (remember comment and rated this).

Got spark and fuel put a new starter in car wont start. Could it be a cam sensor if so where is that located on the car?

Unless the cam sensor is totally shattered which is rare that won't have a lot of effect.(it wears yes) On the 3800 90-94 models it is located bottom of motor left side as you face motor (very difficult location)
On the starter its possible your solenoid was the culprit in the first place.Did the starter come with solenoid attached ?
