It sounds as if the bendix in the starter is sticking. If you can access the starter relay spray some silicone spray in and on the bendix to loosen it and free it from any dirt and contamination.

What's the fix for a 2011 KIA Soul that will not start sometimes. when the ignition key is turned there is a click but the starter does not engage. A push start works but is not a fix.


Starter drive and starter solenoid is needed to engage the starter with the flywheel. I would replace both parts at the same time. It is also possible the teeth on the flywheel are damaged.

Have to turn the starter many times to get car to turn over and start


Probably the solenoid on the starter. Is that what is clicking? Listen for it, if clicking at the starter, probably a bad starter solenoid. Some cars, not all, have a starter relay in the starting circuit. If clicking at a relay block and not from starter, check for a start relay.

Car won't turn over. Battery & starter relay good.


  • READ EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING

  • NOTE: some vehicles have the starter relay and starter mounted together as 1 unit. Sometimes the starter relay and starter are seperate. When I refer to "relay" it could also mean the starter and relay as 1 unit.
Note: "starter switch" is not to be confused with "key switch", although sometimes they are all one unit. The starter switch is usually mounted on the steering column and actuated by a metal rod. On units that are all one unit, the keyswitch/starter switch (both one unit) will have to be replaced. (this is a rare problem, so don't get worried just yet)
1. Check battery voltage, should be between 12.5-14.5 volts. if low voltage replace or charge battery, and try to start car, if it don't crank with new or charged battery, move on. 2. Check connections on the starter relay, even the small one coming from your starter switch. if loose or corroded, clean with a brush and reconnect them. Try to start your car. Did it start? if not, Move on 3. Well now we know the connections aren't the problem. How about a click? did you hear one? If a click is heard, go to #4, if nothing is heard, go to #5

4. Well at least the relay is clicking, but nothing else is going on. The relay is working, so the starter must be bad. Replace the starter and start your car!

5. Humm, connections aren't the problem, maybe the relay is bad, replace your relay with a new one. Move on

6. Now we have a new relay, with clean and tight connections. Start your car. Does it start? If yes, then HORRAY! we fixed it. Does it click? If so then goto #7, If it don't click, then goto #8

7. So here we have a new relay, with good connections that will click when trying to start the car, but nothing else happens. Starter is faulty, replace the starter, and off you go, see ya!

8. So here we have a new relay, with good connections, but it still won't click when we try to start our car. This means that your starter switch is faulty. Replace starter switch and try to start your car. Vroom! finally done with this car problem!

  • List of shortcuts: if you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the relay and apply +12v to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. You can actually hook up a starter button this way. If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT wont start. Has new battery. Starter was taken off car and works. Relays and fuses are fine. Power cables cleaned. Driver information center dim. Headlights are on when key...


PNP park neutral safety switch . Try moving gear selector to neutral . If it starts the switch is bad .
Voltage drop test starter circuit .
fusible relay ??? Now thats funny ! It's just a relay , not fusible relay ! A fusible link is a kind of fuse ,will melt with a short circuit. TEST ,TEST DON'T GUESS and if you can't test ,take it to a qualified repair shop. How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit
Starter Voltage Drop
The computer has nothing to do with it .

http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Free wiring diagrams ! Suggest you view a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in the starter circuit . NO starter relay ! Enter vehicle info. under system click engine, then under subsystem click starting . You will when you turn the key to start it send's B+ voltage to the PNP switch ,from there it goes to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . Very simple . Get a volt meter an test B+ voltage .

Intermittent starter problem, sometimes turns, sometimes not. changed battery, tested bad, starter worked twice, stopped turning. changed starter, still wont turn.


Many European cars have relays that trigger the starter,maybe yours is bad? New battery and new starter? Need to check battery connections to vehicle especially ground wire to engine block. Starter face and flywheel housing have to be clean for good ground connection.
When it won't start do you try key numerous times? Sometimes (rarely) bad keyswitch.

My 1997 dodge caravan won't start. has no power to starter wire or to engine. battery ok stater ok switch ok fuses and relays ok


there is an interrupt switch, called neutral safety switch. When it fails or goes out of adjustment, no start, and essentially no protest or indication. Try foot on brake, shift to neutral, turn key to start and slowly move shifter out of nuetral in each direction. If starter actuates, look into switch adjustment.
