I have 1993 justy electrical problem have no power to engine to start


Use a voltage tester to test the power at the starter when you turn the ignition key.
If there's no power at the starter then get an electrical diagram for your car. (Your local library should have access to the Chiltons repair manuals online.) In that diagram follow the power from the ignition to the starter. In your car check all connections and fuses shown in the electrical diagram.
If there is power at the starter then it is likely that there is a bad connection inside the starter itself. It's not an uncommon problem in a car that old and it's pretty easy for a shop to fix. Take the starter to a repair shop to get it rebuilt.

Not trying to be stupid I know nothing about electrical what are the brush terminals


On motors/generators (starter, alternator, etc,) the brushes make the connection to the rotating armature. You can read up a little on motors and generators. Bottom line is, the brush terminals provide the access point for the outside world - to electrical leads. If you think of an electric drill for something simple...power is applied to the brush terminals, the brushes connect that power to the multiple rotor points as it spins. Slightly different system with DC power but the brushes serve same basic function - providing an electrical contact to something rotating. You may be dealing with a starter or alternator where faulty (worn) brushes or faulty brush terminal wiring is stopping power from getting to the starter, or from the alternator. Does that help at all?

Just went to start blazer, starter won't turn over, all other electrical works. Battery is good any idea's?


Check the electrical connections to the starter.
If sounds like the starter may be bad.
If you remove the starter and take it to autozone, they will test it for free

I have changed the starter solinoid and now i dont


Make sure the starter relay is working properly. Check to see if you are getting power at the relay + cable. Then check to see if you are getting power from the relay to the starter, you may have to turn on the ignition or get someone to turn the switch over in start position. If you're getting power here, then your problem is elsewhere. Are you getting the car to start or just no electrical such as lights and etc?

Vehicle will click but not start, tried juming still clicks , only 10000 original milesany suggestions


Assuming your battery is properly charged and has a good connection, it's your starter solenoid (relay) that has failed.

The starter solenoid receives a large electric current from the car battery and a small electric current from the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is turned on, a small electric current is sent to the starter solenoid. This causes the starter solenoid to close a pair of heavy contacts, thus relaying a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion.

If a starter solenoid receives insufficient power from the battery, it will fail to start the motor, and may produce a rapid clicking or clacking sound. The lack of power can be caused by a low or dead battery, by corroded or loose connections in the battery cable, or by a damaged positive (red) cable from the battery. Any of these problems will result in some, but not enough, power being sent to the solenoid, which means that the solenoid will simply make a clicking sound, rather than setting the starter motor in motion.

If these items are all okay, it is likely you need to replace the solenoid.

I would suspect the starter solenoid has failed.

A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.

This causes the starter solenoid to close a pair of heavy contacts, thus relaying a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. The starter motor is an electric motor that initiates piston motion in a car's internal combustion engine before it can power itself.

It sounds like your starter solenoid (relay) is failing. The clicking is a classic symptom. It's time to have it replaced.

Car doesnt start at all !


check battery
check fuses & wiring to starter
check power at starter main (big red wire)
check for power at starter solenoid (small) wire when key turned start position
if all above are good, try whacking starter body with a hammer lightly while trying to start, don't run yourself over if it does!
replace starter if all electrical good

if all electrical fail test/inspection, ei; no power to starter on small wire, yet big wire hot, check for bad ignition switch
