Keeps blowing starter fuse has new starter does it every once in a while

Check and follow the wires check for cuts, tears loose wires. Usually the starter wires lead to the battery check around that area. Check the connections on the starter maybe it's grounding where it's not suppose to.

Check the battery too I had a battety that moved and arc into the hood it would engage the the starter while the car was running all kinds of strange things.

Changed starter, now no power. battery is fully charged.

Check to make sure all the wires are connected, the whole electrical system gets power from the starter connections to the battery.

Where is the starter relay in 97 oldsmobile aurora

In a '97 model car most of your relays would be in the power distribution box by the battery, but very seldom that is the problem. Truthfully, without a multi-meter and some electrical systems understanding, you would just be looking in the dark. But having checked your battery connections-both cables are snug and tight on a new, fully charged battery? And the new starter had its mounting bolts down tight and, most important, the electrical connections (large battery cable end, and the small starter solenoid wire) all put back in place and tightened down?

Well, if you got it all back together right, turning the key to crank should send voltage to the small wire on the starter solenoid, energizing it and allowing battery voltage to pass to the starter motor and thus crank the engine over. If you have a problem with the starter, that's where you start looking=at the starter. Check if the small wire has power in start position of the ignition switch. Cheery-o's!

I have a 02 Dakota quad cab with 4.7 V8 and apparently have a bad starter. I need to know sreps of removal so I can get it tested or replace it

unhook the battery locate the starter take out the bolts holding the starter in you may have to pull up on the starter in order to get it to come out it may be easier to undo the wire connections before taking starter out youll have to decide that for yourself be careful it can be a lil heavy and maybe a lil awkard to handle trying to get it out. reverse the process to reinstall.

My 1999 nissan altima won't start, no crank,not even a click. All light are ok, stereo, wiper, etc. battery is only months old. I pulled out the starter, have it tested at Advance Auto Parts and it worked...

Keep it simple, start with the fuse...put car in neutral see if it starts(neutral safety switch) , then check for corrosion on your starter relay by removing all connections one at a time and lightly rubbing them with sandpaper or a wire brush. You can purchase "purple goop" to cover electrical connections to keep this from occuring.

Need to hook up the altenator. thick wire from altenator is loose and i don't know where it connects to.

It sounds like you have answered your own question here...? the thick wire from the alternator connecting to the starter terminal feeds electricity back to the battery though the starter cable when you are running... if you have a manual you can see for yourself in the wiring charts. Hope this helps...

I have a grand marquis 1993 and the car wouldnt start although the batteries r good i was told by a mechanic it is the starter . I need to know can I replace the starter by myself and what do i need to do...

I would always suggest having a mechanic do things first and only try yourself if you think you can do it and you do not have the money for a mechanic that can give you a warranty.

Disconnect the battery cables in order to reduce the possibility of accidentally shocking yourself.

Remove the electrical connections from the side of the starter. There are usually two wires: a positive and a negative wire. Remove the positive wire first, and then remove the negative wire from the starter. You may want to mark the connections with a paint pen to help you correctly reconnect the connectors to their proper terminals. To remove the connections, you'll need to use an open face wrench or socket wrench to remove the bolts.
After both of the electrical connections are removed, you'll need to unbolt the starter from the chassis. Before you remove these bolts, take note of how the starter is oriented. You may want to mark the bolts with paint pens. There are usually only two or three bolts that attach the starter to the vehicle.

Remove the starter. In preparation, look closely at your car and determine what path will be easiest for removing the starter. It might be a tight fit, but you'll need to twist and pull the starter around various engine and frame parts in order to get it out of the car. Some cars may be particularly tight, especially those with front wheel drive. You may have to remove other parts in order to get enough space the pull the starter out. If you do remove engine parts, take care to remember their proper location. Replace bolts into the same place they came from once you pull a piece off. This will help you keep up with all of the pieces.

Once you've pulled the starter out, you can put the new starter in its place. You'll need to put it back in the exact same way you pulled the old starter out. Once you have it in place, put in a bolt just enough to hold the starter in place. Then connect the electrical connections beginning with the ground wire. Once the ground wire is connected, attach the rest of the wiring. Next, install the rest of the bolts holding the starter to the frame. Check to see that all bolts are tight.
