It could be the relay, But I don't think you have one, most starters are direct wired from the key to a solenoid on the starter, If there is a relay, it is the big fuse box under the hood, and is just a electric switch, not subject to cold. It sounds more like the terminals are filthy and the contacts are not connecting. Clean off all the wires with a wire brush and scrub the terminals with it, get underneath the connections too. Where the battery cables connect to the lead terminals, If I was up there I would be plugging in my car at night to keep it warm. It will start right up in the morning.

After driving for a while and shutting my jeep off it will not restart without sitting for a few hours


It sounds like a bad starter solenoid/starter, because a starter sits so close to a engine and exhaust that over the years the heat starts breaking down the components and when you drive your Jeep the starter solenoid gets "heat soaked" so when you've been driving your Jeep around for awhile and then turn it off the solenoid is "heat soaked", it needs to cool off before it will engage the starter again. Sometimes it can take up to a few hours to work again. Some people hit the starter w(the engine off) with a hammer to try to free it up.

The solution is to replace the starter with a new one and your Jeep will start up every time. Most starters come with a new solenoid already attached so it's best to replace them both.

It's either a cracked crank position sensor, or the starter. Start by removing the crank position sensor and checking it. It is located somewhere on your engine block.

1995 bmw 3251 hard to start after warm up sometimes the hazrd light will come on when it wont start let it sit for a couple hours start right up run perferct when driving


I have this very same problem. When i try to start ot after it warms up i just get a wirling sound. After about 2 hours when it has cooled down it will start fine. The problem is the starter motor. The solinoids exspand when hot and lose contact because of the heat fom the engine. This is a classic starter motor problem when they are on their last legs. The only other thing it could be is the brushes loosing contact. Either way just replace the starter and it will be fine.

Car not starting and have new battery


You are quite welcome. That is what FixYa is all about. Helping poeple such as youself. Now that you have told me that tapping on the starter makes a difference, It is my opinion that you do indeed have a starter issue. You have 2 options: First, you could take the starter off, and replace the solenoid and replace the worn internal contacts. This is the lesser cost option. The contact wear issue is a very common failure; I change contacts in starters 2-3 times a week. The second option is to replace the starter. If you want to go the contacts route, post back to me for detailed information.
