There is no fuse on the starter. If you are not even getting a click when you go to start, you have something wrong in the ignition switch, or the solenoid itself. Run a jumper from the positive battery terminal (being careful to not short it to ground), to the small lead on the starter solenoid. If it clicks and tries to start, the problem is in the start switch circuit. This includes the start switch, the neutral safety switch (auto tran), clutch switch (manual trans). If it doesn't turn over, it's probably the solenoid. I hope this helps.

I would be checking the battery with a load tester to check for dead cell . Ensure that the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight.

SOURCE: Car makes grinding noise when I try to start,

You may need to install what they call shims in between the starter and the flywheel in order to align it correctly with the flywheel

SOURCE: 1992 LS 400 Lexus. Car wouldn't start. New

remove black plastic relay cover in plastic underhood fuse box and activate relay9006980.jpg with a very small screwdriver and ignition on. If starts, obviously the starter is fine, if not the starter is indeed bad and needs replacement so hold onto your ankles cuz it's gonna hurt.

SOURCE: car will not start

Try running a wire from the little terminal of the starter motor to the Positive on the battery , Disconnect the little wire thats on there first.No need to turn the key on as we are bypassing this.This should cause the starter to turn.Make sure that if its a manual that its in Neutral.
If the starter motor turns then the problem is either the relay or the ignition switch.Or if its an automatic Transmission it could be the inhibitor switch .
Hope this helps
Cheers

Replaced started in 97 dodge caravan checked all wires and still wont start what to do


did you unhook battery cable first? if not and you arced the positive wire with a tool or other piece of metal, you probably blew the starter fuse or relay. It's going to be in the fuse panel under the hood. You may have to look in the owner manual to see which fuse it is.

Diagram of a 2000 chevy express wiring of a starter


( one question i have is every time the ignition fuse blows do i need to replace the starter relay? ) NO ! You have a dead short to ground on one of the circuits that fuse feeds. Do you know how to find a short circuit ? Video's on youtube show how. The fuse that blows ,is it IGN - A 40 amp. located in the under hood fuse/ relay center ? That fuse feeds B+ voltage to the ignition switch ,which powers up other thing's ,fuse's etc.. Not just the starter relay ! I see five other fuse's that get power from that fuse when ignition switch is in the start or run position . In the I/P fuse panel the gauges fuse #4 10amp , air bag fuse #10 10amp , turn b/u fuse #16 20amp. , Plus trans fuse #20 10 amp ! Pull out these fuse an try to start the van. if the ignition fuse doesn't blow the problem is in one of these other fuse circuits. There is one more fuse that get's B+ power from the ignition switch and ign A fuse ,crank fuse fuse #8 10amp. this powers the control side of the starter relay .
You can find a free wiring diagram here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine . Under system click engine , under subsystem click starting. Click the search button then the blue link.
If you pull those fuse's i mention and it still blows the fuse look for a shorted ignition switch or wiring from ignition to the starter relay , not the relay itself. Park neutral safety switch . Isolate the circuit , pull the relay out of it's socket ,pull the crank fuse #8 in the I/P fuse box. with a ohm meter check to see if that part of the circuit is shorted to ground. Do you know how to do that ? Do you have a volt ohm meter ? You can buy one cheap at parts store .

Keeps blowing a fuse that enables the focus to start the fuse is blue it is a 15


It's possible that he starter relay is faulty and not able to hold the amount of charge it's suppose to. I suggest replacing it as well, and replace the starter fuse again.
If this does not help, you may need to replace the starter switch. Also, make sure all battery terminals and starter terminals are clean and secured properly; including the ground. A faulty ground can be the main source of many electrical failures, and in many cases is the issue.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Replaced the starter but while the engine is on the starter wont disengage. Burnt up 2 starters doing this! I've heard it may need to Shimmed, or that the battery cables may need replaced... Anyone know???


Your Starter Relay, located in the Relay/Fuse Box/Panel is sticking and causing the Starter "Run-On".
Locate the Starter Relay in the Relay/Fuse Box/Panel.
The identification and location of the Relays/Fuses should be located in your Owners Manual, or on the inside rear Cover.
There are usually Relays in the Box/Panel which are the same Type (size and shape). Switch out the suspected bad Starter Relay with another non-engine Relay that is KNOWN to work.
Recheck the operations of both these functions.
If the Starter is not still experiencing "Run-On" and the other function is now malfunctioning. The suspected Relay is bad and needs to be replaced.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

30 amp fuse/ in box under hood


The 30 amp fuse is most likely for your starter. Check that the red thick wire (could be black as well) leading to the starter and starter solenoid is properly attached and is not touching anything that would short it out and therefore blow the 30 amp fuse. The short may even be inside the starter in which case it will need to be replaced or repaired. Hope this helps.
