It is possible that the starer is pulling too much amperage- 1st thing you need to do is find out what if any other consumers are on that circuit, 2nd you need to find out how much amperage is being consumed by the starter. 3rd test you wires most likely if a wire problem it is the heavy hot wire on the starter or the back of the alternator has a loose retaining nut

The starter won't crank. If nothing happens when you turn the ignition key to the "Start"position, it means that the starter motor doesn't turn over the engine. Most commonly this could be caused by a dead battery; here is How to check the battery. ... The starter motor itself or a starter solenoid could be bad.13 Aug 2013

I have a 95 honda accord dx. When i put the key in and turn it nothing happens. All my dash lights come on but nothing trys trys turning over or anything. I was told by a handful of mechanics and people at...


Check to see if you have voltage to the starter if you do try tapping the solenoid while someone cranks it if it starts change out your starter if you have no voltage to your starter start to look for a fusible link that goes to your starter chances are its blown. A fusible link is going to look just like a regular insulated wire but acts as a fuse and blows just like a fuse check the wires to the starter I usually pull a little on the wires to see if the insulation will stretch if it keeps stretching then that's the fusible link that's blown and will need to be changed out. I have seen this on many vehicles where everything works but the starter will not turn over. sometimes the fusible link is located down by the starter and other times its under the hood next to other fusible links you just have to find it let me know how it goes.

My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it


Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer

My GMC safari 2004 has been blowing Ignition 1 fuse (40 amps) at the moment I turn key to start position,even without starter disconnected it blowed but i replaced the fuse and i removed the starter r


The problem could be a shorted park netual safety switch . Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? It shows all the componets involved in a electrical circuit ! You IGN.1 fuse 40amp , GM calls it IGN A fuse 40 amp . It feeds the ignition switch and pin 30 at the starter enable relay .When you turn the key to the start position it sends B+ voltage to #8 crank fuse , located in the I/P fuse box ,from there it goes to the park netual safety switch , to pin 86 or 85 of the starter enable relay ! If you pull the relay out of the fuse box an look on the bottom you will see this four set's of numbers ,30,87 & 85 ,86 You can test at the fuse box where the relay plugs in . Here is a video on how to test . The guy presenting the video uses a horn circuit , but it works the same way . It happens a lot , the park netual safety switch shorting out . It may or may not be the problem . VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis
Here is a web site for free wiring diagrams
http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter your vehicle info . then under system click on engine , then under subsystem click on starting . Then click on the search button an a link will pop up , click on it .You will see all the componets , connections , wiring colors etc... for the starter circuit for your vehicle .

Changed starter...new battery....lights and radio work nothing happens when turn the key.


Starter Fuse? Possible failed ignition switch. Loose Cables on battery or starter. Starter not grounding properly. Bad starter Relay? Use Voltmeter check voltage going to main starter wire while someone cranks the motor if not power check power to starter relay while cranking if no power suspect ignition switch.

I have a 2001 vw beetle that will not start the lights come on when key is turned but nothing happens to the starting section it was suggested to change the ingition control module if you think that is...


before replacing your ignition control module, it is a good idea to test if it is your starter/solenoid. I dont know if the solenoid is built into the starter on this car (many or most newer ones are) but either of a bad starter or solenoid could also cause a no start condition and is probably a more likely and simpler problem scenario. When you say "nothing happens to the starting section" do you mean you've already tested that no power goes to your starter or simply that when you turn the key to the start position nothing happens? If you have a voltage tester there should be a smaller red wire leading to the starter/solenoid in addition to the large one going straight from the battery box. If this is 'hot' or has voltage when the key is turned to start (12-14 volts is good) then the ignition module is not the problem. Remember that on your VW you can only hit the start point once for each key cycle.. ie before your 'start' point works, the key has to begin in the complete off position. you can't 'retap' start from the on or acc position for additional tests.

My 1997 honda accord wont start.....


Hi Matt

Follow the( + ) positive lead from the battery, to the starter, check the connections, if all OK, get someone to turn the ignition key to start, and give the starter a tap, on the selenoid, with a small hammer or a metal socket extension.

Good Luck !

Let me know the outcome !

Also a FixYa rating would be nice !
