Would bad connection in the starter cause the ignition switch to not start


If the ignition switch is turned to the crank position and there is no starter operation the starter may be at fault. You will have to check and see if the start wire on the starter solenoid has power when the key is turned to the crank position. If there is power then the starter is bad . If no power there is an electrical issue to the starter

How to fixed wont start engine..


test the following and fix it. GOD BLESS you.fe35589e-c7d2-4fa3-a813-99841956a6cb.gif
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;
If the battery checks out OK, but the starter still won't crank, there could be a number of possible reasons. Here are some of them:

The ignition switch could be bad - it's a common problem. An ignition switch is an electrical switch installed at the back of the ignition lock mechanism. If jiggling the key in the ignition helps start the car, the ignition switch should be checked first.
The starter solenoid control wire could have a bad connection.
The starter motor itself or a starter solenoid could be bad.
A neutral safety switch is bad. If a car doesn't start with the transmission in Park, but starts in Neutral, it could be caused by a problem with a neutral safety switch.
.
A problem with vehicle's security system or some other electronic control module (e.g., ECM, BCM) may also prevent the starter from operating.

The starter keeps runing when I turn off the ignition switch


You have one of 3 issues that could cause this, a bad starter solenoid which is built onto the starter for your model. The ignition switch is defective, could be a bad spring that is in the switch or you have a remote starter which may have issues !

Car won't start. Just replaced battery, alterntor and fuel pump. Keeps on cutting off and won't crank.


check the wire from battery to starter and make sure its clean and tight! if wire is ok, it maybe in starter or starter solinoid. also check and be sure wire on ignition to starter is ok.make sure power is at or going through ignition switch. a bad ignition switch will cause many starting problems. if switch is bad, then dash lights will not go off when turning key off. check wiring and starter first. have a good day !

No power to starter


CHECK BATTERY CABLES FOR CLEANESS FROM CORROSSION AND TIGHT CONNECTION. IF NO POWER GOING TO STARTER COULD BE FAULTY STARTER RELAYOR FUSE ALSO BAD OPEN SOLENOID.IF ALL IS GOOD FAULTY PARK AND NEUTRAL SWITCH WILL CAUSE NO START PROBLEMS.IF DASH LIGHTS DONT COME ON WHEN YOU TURN IGNITION SWITCH ON CHECK IGNITION FUSE IF OKAY.FAULTY IGNITION SWITCH WILL CAUSE NO POWER TO STARTER.

Car won't start. My guess is either ignition or perhaps starter. Battery has plenty of juice and fuses on fuse panel all look good.


IF YOU TURN IGNITION SWITCH ON POSITION GET NO DASH LIGHTS RESPONSE.IGNITION SWITCH IS BAD.IF YOU ARE GETTING DASH LIGHTS.YOUR STARTER SOLENOID OR STARTER IS BAD.THE STARTER REAY IS BAD OR FAULTY CLUTCH PEDAL SWITCH FOR MANUAL TRANSMISSION OR TRANSMISSION PARK NEUTRAL SWITCH OR SHIFT SENSOR BAD.THESE ARE THE POSSIBLE CAUSES.

Will not crank, battery is good, starter is good


Yes, there is a starter relay which is most likely the culprit.

Trace the red battery cable, you'll find the relay at the end of it. Disconnect the starter cable and the battery cable, but not the ignition switch leads, from the relay. Then test for continuity through the switch side of the relay when the ignition is turned to start.

If there is no continuity, the relay is bad.

More info, let me know.

Relay starter switch


simple thing the click your hearing is a bad connection from battery to starter or the ground

the battery posts could be coroded or frade
remove wire look for frade wire and adjust and clean on the post of battery both ground and positive make sure they have tight connection

also make sure starter has good connection this will also give you the clicking sound cause these things i decribed are just things that have a bad contact

now for the other part of clicking its not your relay cause obviously the power is making it but not much to turn starter

other things that can be wrong
starter silennoid bad
bad cell in battery even when the battery tester says the battery is good a dead cell wouldnt show
alternator not charging battery
bad ingnition coil

this are a few things that would run down and give bad battery click check with top of this help with the cables first this will probably be the cause
