The starter in my 2001 Beetle wouldn't engage whentrying to start. REPLACED THE STARTER AND STILL DOES THE SAME THING, ANY CLUES?

When you replaced starter did you notice the condition of the
flywheel ring gear? My guess is the ring gear is very badly worn or somehow the positioning of the starter is such that it is off enough
that it runs into the ring inside the gear. Did you hit something in the road before this symptom started? Any chance someone tried to jack up the car and used the starter as a lifting point?
Accident? Are you sure it's your original engine? Ie they used to be very easy to change. Any other thing that would bend the mounting point on the engine? If manual transmission, try to move the engine a little by moving the car with clutch engaged.
If Automatic try to move ring gear with a tool if you can get to it.
If this action is sufficient to move the ring gear into a "good" spot
and the Starter will engage, you now know you have a few bad spots.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire 5 speed won't start. Replaced spark plugs and checked ignition coil (fine). Sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a "whining" noise. Please assist. Thank you!

Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.

No start, no crank

If the starter won't engage, you can't crank the engine. You would only hear the starter operating freely. The replacement starter may have to be shimmed to fully engage the ring gear. Also, did you verify that the ring gear is OK?

97 Maxda Protege starter engages automaticly in park or neutral with key in ON position

You've pretty much answered your own question, although I doubt it's demons...LOL. Ign switch, nuetral safety or park switch, shorted starter, could be chaffed wiring. If your in the ON position and the starter engages, I'd be looking at the ign wire from the switch to the starter solenoid and or relay. Your car is 20 years old so anything is possible at this point. Your best bet is to go to ALLDATA>COM and buy the wiring schematics for your car grab a DVM and start checking your circuits.

2003 dyna starter turns but wont engage, new battery fitted

Hi Anonymous, lift up rubber boot on positive cable to starter, unplug starter relay wire usually green, with a jumper wire connected to positive battery cable starter stud, touch blade connecter on starter where starter relay wire was removed. If starter engages and turns over engine then your starter relay is bad. If starter activates but does not engage then your starter drive/clutch is bad. Good luck

Where is the starter located?

Honda Accord/Prelude 1984-1995 Repair Guide

Accords and Preludes may be fitted with either a direct-drive starter or a gear reduction starter. The differences are internal and depend on the manufacturer of the starter.

The two units are similar in operation and service. Both starters are 4-pole, series wound, DC units to which an outboard solenoid is mounted. When the ignition switch is turned to the START position, the solenoid armature is drawn in, engaging the starter pinion with the engine flywheel. When the starter pinion and flywheel are fully engaged, the solenoid armature closes the main contacts for the starter, causing the starter to crank the engine

When the engine starts, the increased speed of the flywheel causes the gear to overrun the starter clutch and rotor. The gear continues in full mesh until the ignition is released from the START to the ON position, interrupting the starter current. A spring then returns the gear to its neutral position.

  1. Disconnect both battery terminals, negative first.
  2. Disconnect the large cable from the starter motor; label and disconnect the wiring to the starter solenoid. Certain engine/transmission combinations have an engine harness secured in a clip on the starter or transaxle. Remove the harness from the clip and position it out of the way.

  1. Remove the starter motor by loosening the attaching bolts.
To install:
  1. To install, reverse the removal procedures. Tighten the starter-to-engine bolts to 47 ft. lbs. (64 Nm) on the Accord V-6 and 32 ft. lbs. (45 Nm) on other models.
  2. Connect the wiring to the starter securely.
  3. Connect the battery cables, positive cable first.
  1. Remove the starter from the vehicle.
  2. Remove the screws securing the solenoid to the starter housing.
  3. Pull out the solenoid. On the Nippodenso type, there is a spring on the shaft and a steel ball at the end of the shaft, be sure not to lose them. On the Mitsuba type, move the solenoid away from the plane of the armature to disengage it from the solenoid lever.
To install:
  1. Install the solenoid with a new gasket (if equipped). On the Mitsuba type, make certain the lever is correctly installed to, and engaged with, the lever. On the Nippodenso unit, make certain the steel ball and spring are correctly placed. All the sliding surfaces of the solenoid should be lightly greased before installation.
  2. Tighten the retaining screws until snug.
  3. Install the starter.
Good luck (remember rated and comment this post).

Starter does not engage. I replaced the battery

You can remove the starter and bench test it on a vise. You will need your battery or a charger to test the starter with. The trick to do it is simple. The grond is the vise and the positive is the battery cable lug to the starter. Have a small wire to jump the positive and simply touch the solenoid connector to see if the starter engages
