My car won't start it wont even crank over I replaced the battery today


Hi Patricia:
Is there a clicking sound when you turn the key?
With a new battery, as long as the terminals and wires are good, the motor should turn over when you turn the key.
If it doesn't, there will be an electrical probleM. (Sorry, but I have to state the obvious.)
Tracing an electrical problem requires some basic knowledge and a voltmeter/continuity meter.
You could try shorting across the solenoid terminals, but ONLY if you have the experience to know what you are doing.

For ranger new starter wont stop running


Starter Relay The starter motor solenoid relay switch (11450) consists of a pull-in coil, a contact disc, and two terminal contacts. Battery voltage is always present at the relay positive terminal. When the ignition switch (11572) is in the START position, the pull-in coil is activated and pulls the contact disc into contact with both terminal contacts. This allows battery current to pass through the starter motor solenoid relay switch to the starter solenoid (11390). The starter solenoid is deactivated when the ignition switch is in the RUN or OFF position.
Maybe something is hooked up wrong ! Or the starter relay is bad

Car wont start but batterys good


A fully charged battery does not mean that its amperage output is adequate, have it tested at an auto parts store. While your problem could be battery, wiring, key switch, solenoid, starter or maybe really cold outside, best to start with simplest first, clean the battery terminals and cable connectors with a terminal brush tool and install anti-corrosion impregnated felt rings on each terminal. With the battery terminals disconnected, also unbolt and clean the solenoid and starter terminals too and re-tighten. Then find the "ground" connections from the negative battery cable to the metal chassis and from the engine to the chassis, unbolt, clean, sand clean each if necessary and reinstall. If when using a voltmeter there is any reading between the engine block and the negative terminal of the battery, installing an extra ground cable directly between the engine block and the negative battery terminal connector. When reinstalling battery terminals, install positive terminal first, place socket slightly larger than battery terminal on top of it and lightly tap to fully seat the cable connector on the battery terminal before tightening. Tighten snug enough that cable connector does not move on the battery terminal, do not over tighten. Beware of battery acid and accumulated corrosion, wear eye protection and protective gloves too and be aware that battery acid eats holes in clothing and cloth gloves. If problem persists, a DC voltmeter most useful to determine if when key turned to start, there is voltage applied to the solenoid. If yes, then to check if solenoid operates upon key turn to "start" applying voltage through solenoid to starter. If yes, and if battery amperage output tested "ok" then starter may need to be replaced.

Clean your battery terminals. When you jump start it you are connecting straight to the terminals. You are losing voltage between your battery post and the battery terminals. When you take the terminals off, you can clean everything with battery terminal cleaner. It is a spray that most all auto supply stores have. Before you put the terminals back on, put some dielectric grease on them, also available at parts stores.

My ford bronco wont start


Lets start with the starter solenoid. If you are talking about the solenoid on the fender, a ground wire does not attach to it if it is mounted to something metal. You would have the positive battery cable on one big post, and the starter cable on the other, with a wire on the small terminal going to the key switch. Usually the small wire goes on the terminal next to the battery cable. There may also be fuseable link wires that go on the battery terminal with the battery cable.

Car wont start i get power but wont turn over and starter test good and battery is new and ingition switch is new


About the only thing left would be the battery cables (assuming the starter solenoid was also tested). A corroded connection at the battery terminals or oiled-up connection at the starter is all it takes.

Another thought ... have you checked for voltage on the solenoid terminals to make sure the ignition switch is properly installed?

My car was making a clicking sound, so i replaced the starter, and after the new one was in, its still making a clicking sound and still wont start.


Sounds like you either have a loose connection or a bad starter solenoid, or a bad battery. Check the connections to your battery and starter and make sure they are tight. Have your battery load tested it may be bad.

If your starter came with a solenoid mounted on the satrter than it should be new too and that should not be the problem. If you have a fendor mounted solenoid then I would take a screwdriver and cross the positive and negative terminals. This will feed the starter directly and bypass the solenoid. If the starter turns over then you need a new solenoid. I am guessing that your battery terminals are loose and I would start there.

94 escort wont start


sounds like you might just have a new battery that needs charging FIRST - before you try anything erlse - check ur new battery - they sometimes come without a charge.


How many miles - ?

First it is best to be sure the solenoid is ok. There are two large 'terminals' on the solenoid -
one leads to the battery - using a jumper wire or even a screw driver - [ get a pro or someone with more experience if u not confident here] - jump the large BATTERY SIDE terminal to the small wire terminal - it usually has a simple push on wire - remove the little wire - and put ur jumper cable on that terminal - - be sure the car is in park - and or emergency break on.
Also be sure your neutral safety switch is good. If ur car is automatic then put it in neutral - with brake on and try it -
