    where is the starter relay located?

  • Samuel Charles Spriggs May 11, 2010

    There is no starter fuse in the fuse block. No power to starter is usaully a problem with the starter relay -- there are other possibiliteis as well...

  • Samuel Charles Spriggs May 11, 2010

    Starter relay will be very near the battery or on the starter itself.



    Have someone turn the switch on & off and listen for a light click -- that's your relay/solenoid.

If this is a automatic there is a wire (yellow possibly) that runs to the back of the engine to the starter there is a connection somewhere on this wire that will allow you to pull it apart, it may be corroded at this connection which is a common problem. If its a standard the starter is in the front of the engine, same thing there is a wire that runs to it from the fire wall this wire for both trany's is your trigger wire when you turn the key to start it powers this wire to your started engaging it. Also it may be corroded at the starter check all connections even the main power cables for the starter if they look green or white you will have to pull the wire off and clean the terminals well.

Lots of power, dash lights up but no ignition power to starter, relay changed, neutral start switch changed, fuses good.


Well, looking at the schematic, there is the IGN A (Fuse 6) in the under-hood fuse block feeding power to both the ignition switch and to the NO contact of the starter relay. Turning the ignition switch to the START position sends this voltage thru the CRANK (Fuse 8) in the instrument panel fuse block and thru the PARK/NEUTRAL position switch, thru the starter relay coil to ground. This should activate the Starter relay and pass voltage to the starter solenoid to ground, activating it. One the starter solenoid activates, batter power is sent to the starter motor, activating it. If, as you say, the fuses are good, the starter relay was replaced and is good, and the Park/Neutral position switch was replaced and is good, then then only items left are the ignition switch itself, the starter solenoid/motor, or the wiring of the circuit.

Ignition relay clicks but starter won't engage


Where is this relay? A wiring diagram doesn't show any relay at all in the starting circuit. Just this: a yellow start wire out of ignition switch goes to the neutral safety switch (if manual, a clutch start switch on the clutch pedal: if automatic a transmission range switch); From the safety switch a purple wire to the starter solenoid on the starter motor. Only other place to check is a "crank" fuse in the instrument panel fuse block- a 10 amp fuse in position 8 of the block.
Is the click you hear possibly from the starter solenoid? If it is, that means key switch part of circuit to the solenoid is good. Either starter motor is bad, or battery connections to starter and to battery ground may be bad, check them first.

Will not start,OR CRANK, NO NOISE


Do warning lights and gauges come on, when key is turned to on?
If yes, check for power on the small wire at starter solenoid mounted on the starter with the key held in start. If power at the solenoid, take starter off and test for a bad starter or solenoid. If no power at solenoid when key held over to crank, work back to the switch in the start circuit-starter relay, clutch or neutral safety switch,-power from the start wire out of switch is not getting to the starter solenoid.
If no warning lights or gauges work with key in on position, power is either not getting to switch (bad maxi-fuse or fuse link, or bad battery connections-clean and tighten, recheck)-or the switch itself is not sending power out. Check if battery is charged up. Check all connections and grounds for loose, poor connections.
The start circuit starts at the battery, then to ignition switch, then out of ignition switch on the start wire to the clutch switch (or neutral/park on automatics), and on , ending at the starter solenoid on the starter. Somewhere in your starting circuit, power is lost. Start at the battery-check charge, check connections, check ignition switch.

Van will not crank over, seems to have no power to the starter


Battery? If OK, turn the ignition switch to START and listen for a click indicating the starter relay is closing. If it clicks, the starter may have failed. If no click, check 10A CRANK fuse 8 in the instrument panel fuse block. If OK, check 40A IGN-A fuse in the underhood fuse/relay center. If OK, check for 12V at the top of the IGN-A fuse. If OK, the ignition switch, the park/neutral position switch (shift quadrant), or the starter itself are the only other possibilities

No power to starter


CHECK BATTERY CABLES FOR CLEANESS FROM CORROSSION AND TIGHT CONNECTION. IF NO POWER GOING TO STARTER COULD BE FAULTY STARTER RELAYOR FUSE ALSO BAD OPEN SOLENOID.IF ALL IS GOOD FAULTY PARK AND NEUTRAL SWITCH WILL CAUSE NO START PROBLEMS.IF DASH LIGHTS DONT COME ON WHEN YOU TURN IGNITION SWITCH ON CHECK IGNITION FUSE IF OKAY.FAULTY IGNITION SWITCH WILL CAUSE NO POWER TO STARTER.

Engine will not crank. Battery is good Starter is good. When I turn the ignition nothing happens.i am not getting any power to close the starter solenoid. I can switch the vehicle on and use a jumper wire...


Be sure this car doesn't have a starter relay, you can can purchase a cd repair manual on ebay motors that has a electrical component locate in the software, this is a valuable tool to have, great deal for the $20.00. Hopefully this is not an ignition switch they are a pain to do you will need a steering wheel puller amongst other tools not commonly found in the laymans tool chest such as metric torx wrenches etc. check the replace the starter relay first if warranted then do the ignition switch be sure to check all fuses in the fuse block located in engine compartment if equipped.
