Check the small wires going to the starter solenoid. Hook up a voltmeter on the wires and see if you have power in the crank position. The ignition relay may be why power is not going through the keyswitch. The fusible link, probably not a problem if the engine runs.

SOURCE: engine wont crank

im looking at that circuit , on the start relay on your radiator support , red is always hot via fusible link , purple to solenoid as you say , orange/black wire should be hot in run or start mode , if it is not the fuse for that wire is PCM/ABS 10 amp located fuse block in driver door jam , it does go through the nuetral saftey switch , the yellow wire going to the PCM must ground that relay to activate start mode . last note there is a PCM/CRANK fuse in the driver door jam also , 10 amp , if all this is good i would like to hear more . 1 more note about the nuetral saftey switch is the pink wire going in and the orange/black wire coming out should have continuity in park and nuetral ....let us know thanks

SOURCE: Starter relay fuse blowing in a 1995 Ford Explorer

Sooooooo. The relay coil is drawing more current than the fuse can handle..... First guess is a short in the wire between the fuse and the relay coil. I would disconnect the wire that powers the solenoid relay coil. Then I would try (momentarily) clip leading a wire to the battery positive terminal - and touching the other end to the relay coil terminal connection. (Caution!! you are bypassing the factory wire and its associated fuse. If your temporary wire becomes hot - IMMEDIATELY remove it from the coil.) ------------------------However, I suspect that you will have the coil energized and that the engine will turn over....since the key is not in the ON position, the motor will not start.

If this works-then you know that the factory wire is touching the chassis somewhere... and you can either remove it and run another from the fuse to the coil terminal - or try to find the point of the short (good luck - and let me know)

Sounds like there's a grounded wire somewhere between the ignition switch and the solenoid. When you bypass the switch with the screwdriver you don't ground out the line, but with the switch the ground shorts the circuit, blows the fuse, and then won't start the engine.

94 camaro wont start...no firefrom the coil has new icm , coil , fuel pump


Check the icm plug with a led testlight for pulse while the engine is cranking. Test the wire connector with the small wires going into the coil for pulse.The v8 has a opti-spark distributor behind the waterpump that is prone to failure. It has the pickup inside it that tells the icm when to spark. If no pulse at icm distributor is bad. If pulse at icm but not at coil, icm or wiring between icm and coil is bad.The coil also needs pos.+ power on 1 terminal to operate. Be SURE to check the security light on the dash. If VATS [vehicle anti theft system] fails its usually within the 2 wires going from the key chip in the ignition tumbler to the body control module. Mine were purple and tan.Trying to start it with the wrong key can put it in lockout mode also. There are bypass modules available online for vats problems or you can even install a resistor in the wire to bypass the keychip part and the door alarms still work.

97 f250 ford truck wont start unless you short across the solenoid


A test light is better for basic testing(puts a load on the circuit).You should be able to get a light on the small solenoid wire when the key is turned to "start".If the light comes on,and shorting across the large terminals cranks the starter,the solenoid is the problem.(pretty common cause).

Could be solenoid or also the connections. Make sure there is good ground connection from battery to engine and check the big hot cable from the battery to the starter. If you want to troubleshoot, try jumping directly to solenoid terminals. if it doesn't crank from solenoid terminals, the solenoid is bad. Be careful to set the tranny in neutral or park and set the parking brake before doing this, and also be careful not to short the jumper cables!!

Try to start it and nothing happens it wont turn over


Check all your fuses..It maybe just your fuse for the ignition...which in fact turns your starter over.... And yes your starter is good, if it tries to crank when you jump it..Now if your fuses are good, then yea your problem mat be the ignition switch itself....But check all your fuses first...Goodluck...

Check the condition of the power and ground cables, Bypass the cables with a set of jumper cables, connect the NEG post to the engine with the black cable, and POS to the Starter Solenoid with the red cable. then try it if it starts the cables are bad or poorly connected.

check the battery voltage in stand by and cranking, try jump starting the truck. if the truck will start with a jump the battery could be bad.
If the starter solenoid is separate from the starter then it is possible the solenoid is bad.

Hope this is of some help.
