SOURCE: Car radio gets hot

Getting hot is always a sign of bad wireing of some sort. It can come from wireing to wires together that shouldn't be together or possibly a bad ground. Re-check your wireing.

Bypassing ignition

You take the hot wire to the ignition switch and twist it together with the run wire out of the switch-then ignition is on, just as if the key were turned to on. Then take the start wire that goes out of the switch and touch it to the hot wire to make the starter work. Soon as engine is started, remove the start wire from hot wire and tuck it out of the way. When you want it off, untwist the hot wire and the run wire.
If you cannot hot wire it like this, check if there is a security system that has immobilized the car. I don't know if a '92 had a security system.

I just replaced the starter on my 2000 Bravada. No other problems before starter replacement. Can someone please tell me why, now, when I am hooking up the battery, the truck is trying to turn over...

Because the ignition switch wire (small purple wire) or connector is touching the hot post on the starter.So when you connect the battery it just like turning the ignition key to start the engine. Make sure all the wires on the starter are not touching each other.

if your starting the car,by only jumping a wire at the neutral switch,then you more than likely have a bad neutral safety switch that needs to be replaced.

What wires do i use to hot wire my 2000 impala

"Hot-wiring" a car is fiction for TV and movies. Even if you could start the vehicle by crossing some wires, you still need the key to unlock the steering wheel and deactivate any security system that it may have.

96 ford explorer wont start. all power when turn key. nothing.

if it turns over from below,then its in the ignition switch and this also feeds power to the e.c.m. to make the engine fire so you either have a bad switch contact or the hot 12 volt wire to the ignition switch

Why does my starter ingage itself when i hook up the battery?

  • Hi, If you're starter is engageing the solenoid on you're G.M.C., the Ignition switch is at fault. If you were to go under the vehicle with a 12 volt dc tester, one with the sharp point and a decent brand, and excess the starter and solenoid, with the key off 1st. Find the hot wire that feeds the solenoid. This wire comes from the ignition switch and is only hot when the key is turned to the start position, past on. I would have a friend with you for this test and safety reasons if you have to jack the vehicle up to get under it. In you're case even if the key is on only, it should not try to start. So, locate this wire, pull the coil wire off so it wont start. With key off and you ready with tester, have the positive cable already connected, have a friend touch and hold the ground cable to post and if you are not sure which wire to the solenoid you need, it will be the one that lights the tester, not the larger hot wire to the large nut at the front of the solenoid, but one of the 2 other smaller wires. If the key is off and when the battery cable is touched and held, and if the starter is engaged and light is on, stop the test. Look that wire over to see if it touching or melted together somewhere between the solenoid and ignition switch. If not, you will need to replace the switch. Follow my instructions step by step, and we can solve you're problem. Keep me informed. Good Luck, and be safe, Sincerely,
PS Like I said, please try and look the wiring over as it could be touching a Hot wire causing it to be energized all the time.
