Bad starter, starter solenoid clicks, but the starter does not turn, check the charge of the .... If it still will not start, it means something else is (mechanical or electrical) wrong too.

    The starter motors runs perfectly. It does not engage whatever to turn the engine over. Kick starting is no problem.

SOURCE: 1999 ford taurus starter will not engage

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge, you assumption is correct on most designs. That wire should go to the ignition switch and will be hot when key is in START. However, same wire often would be connected first to a relay that is interlocked with some conditions/status other then key to START. They would be:

  • automatic transmission should be in neutral/park with light indicated;
  • alarm/security/immobilizer is inactive/OFF.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

SOURCE: when truck is running the starter want's to engage not good for the flywheel or starter i think it might be the ingnition switch but not sure need help /???

hi! there,
well, possible cause engaging starter while
running there is a short circuit on your starting
system wiring.
check on ignition switch after starting and
engine run normally,possibility after
cranking and release the key run
engine normally there is short occurd on
solenoid relay.if defective replace this is
mounted separately from starter motor.
usually on near engine there a fuse and
relay box.

you mention you changed starter motor
and no change,there is starter solenoid
attached directly to starter motor
assembly this to move the plunger pinion
gear that will hook the flywheel to turn.
after cranking and normal engine run.after
that the plunger pinion gear will disengage
by the supply from solenoid you
must check your solenoid relay circuit.

have a nice day.dont gorget to rate me

SOURCE: 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee - will not start - starter

I also have a 98 Jeep Cherokee with the same problem. I know I probably need to replace the starter eventually but as of now I turn it to accessory only, pop it in neutral, then start it and it works every time when it wouldn't even try to turn over with it in park. Don't know why it works, but it does. Give it a try.

Starter engaged while driving would not disengage. I turned key off put a new starter on now have lights power but nothing happens when turn the key whats going on? please, someone, tell me something.

Bad ignition switch. I have seen lots of these go bad. Also check starter relay. What happened was for some reason the starter relay was activated and sent a signal to the starter to start the car even though the car was running

The starter in my 2001 Beetle wouldn't engage whentrying to start. REPLACED THE STARTER AND STILL DOES THE SAME THING, ANY CLUES?

When you replaced starter did you notice the condition of the
flywheel ring gear? My guess is the ring gear is very badly worn or somehow the positioning of the starter is such that it is off enough
that it runs into the ring inside the gear. Did you hit something in the road before this symptom started? Any chance someone tried to jack up the car and used the starter as a lifting point?
Accident? Are you sure it's your original engine? Ie they used to be very easy to change. Any other thing that would bend the mounting point on the engine? If manual transmission, try to move the engine a little by moving the car with clutch engaged.
If Automatic try to move ring gear with a tool if you can get to it.
If this action is sufficient to move the ring gear into a "good" spot
and the Starter will engage, you now know you have a few bad spots.

You may have a starter relay sticking, next time it happends tap on your starter relay with some kind of small hamer, or something like that.

Good battery, key will not engage starter, jumping starter will not engage drive

jumping across the solenoid will spin the starter but will not engage the pinion in the ring gear. Have a load test done on the battery as I suspect that there is a bad cell and you are not getting a full charge. If the battery is faulty then there is always enough power to turn on dash lights but nothing left to run the high current solenoid and starter.

Starter whines

You could have a bad spot on the flywheel. The flywheel is a plate with a ring of teeth the gear on the starter engages. If you turn the crankshaft a few inches and the starter works, I would check the flywheel.
Otherwise, it could be a mounting problem with the starter, or something keeping the bendix gear from engaging.

Starter motors good but wont turn over my1982 lincoln continental

When you say the starter motor runs, do you mean it runs fast but does not turn the engine, in that case it may be something to do with starter not engaging the ring gear.

If when the starter runs it turns the engine slowly then it could be starter is not getting enough power.

The reasons for starter motor not getting enough power can be, a bad battery, loose battery connector, stiff engine or a bad starter solenoid.
To check a bad battery, turn your head lights on and when you try to crank the engine, if the light go dim, you have a bad battery or a bad battery connection. If the lights are not affected you may have a stiff engine.
