SOURCE: Starter fails to start.

I'm having the same problem. The dealership keeps telling me it's the starter. I've replaced starter and still have the same problem. I have had all the wiring and new key swith put in and still have the same problem. I guess were in the same boat!!!

I have the same model year as yours, but that does not really matter. If you go to the back of your Haynes manual, the wiring color codes are spelled out for you specific to your car, It is possible that a new or rebuilt starter can be stuck (clearances on starter gear/and shaft) or that you somehow bolted it in slightly askew and it is stuck or cannot move properly. Spot check the ring gear teeth by looking through the starter hole to see if they are o.k. and that the gear on the starter seems correct.  Also, look around and check and make sure the ground strap is good (motor to body) or any ground for that matter Sometimes, if a motor or starter motor is in a locked rotor condition this will cause a heat rise. It might be a good idea to remove it and energize it with jumper cables from the battery-- (a bench test) to verify actuation. (spin)  Then wipe the grease of the leads (so you can read your color code) and carefully connect them to the terminals as the wiring diagram tells you in the Haynes manual.

SOURCE: turn key on, but doesnt even click. battery and starter are fine

This may be due to a bad neutral safety switch, is this car automatic or manual transmission?

If automatic try to start in neutral and if manual try to locate switch on clutch pedal and use a jumper wire to jump connector for switch, NOTE; If switch is jumped car will start in gear with pedal not pushed down and car will take off so this is just as a test not a repair!!!!!, good day

Neon will not start after being driven on hot days.


You have an intermittent problem in your start circuit. I'm sure you also have some choice phrases to describe it, go ahead and vent, we have all encountered frustrating problems.
The reason shops can't find it is because it isn't happening when they look at it. Anytime a hot engine is shut down a lot of heat is generated in the engine compartment. So opening the hood helps yours cool down faster and start quicker, a good clue. I believe if you had it at a shop when it won't start, they might find it. First thing they would check, or you could if you have a voltmeter or testlight, is if power is reaching the starter from the ignition switch in cranking position. This is the small wire on the starter solenoid. If there is power there when the engine won't crank, quickly reconnect the wire and verify if car will crank or not. If still nothing, it may be a poor ground wire(battery or engine ground) or a poor battery cable, since you know the starter is good. If you reconnect the wire and it suddenly starts working, it may have just been a loose connection on the wire you pulled off. If it keeps happening when your hot engine is shut off, test may have been invalid-intermittent problem has only now come back, so run the same test again.
If you or a tech ever find no power on the solenoid wire in START, that narrows it down to the path from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. One needs to trace that path, looking for where the power is stopped. A couple of possibilities are the starter relay and the neutral safety switch. You could try a new inexpensive starter relay and see if that solves it. If not, then further testing needs to be done before giving up or throwing some expensive parts in and hoping. But you have narrowed it down which helps. It could be some arcane problem like a ground source for the starter relay, or who knows what. Have the start circuit checked, and it would be easier if the no crank condition is present when checked. Good luck.

Where do the starter wires go on a 2000 chevy tracker 2.0 **** engine


Where do you want the start and end of the wires to go?
One large red wire goes to battery one wire goes to the safety neutral switch then to the to the fuse block to the ingntion switch. the second wire goes from the starter to the fuse block and down to the coil pack. would be nice to know what your trying to day.

I have a 1995 geo tracker installed a starter , it started fine but negative post on battery got hot now wont start at all just clicks


new battery....or alternator.....try boosting it if it starts leave it running and remove cables... if it quits when u remove jumper cables then u need alternator or check its fuseable link ........if it stays running it was your battery and your starter was probably ok i...u didnt need to change it or both starter and battery were bad ....starters kill batteries when they are failing and start to draw too much amperage from battery ...another quick way to tell a battery is dead,,,,,,is to look and see if its swollen or bulging...tis the season for batteries and alternaters ;-) good luck

My ford taurus just wont start


check that the small [exciter wire] is not loose or disconnected at the starter motor solenoide !
It could also be a bad starter relay!
try bridging the exciter terminal to the posative [big cable ] on the starter solenoide with a screwdriver or a piece of heavy guage wire to see if the starter activates!
if it works would it could be a faulty relay
