The "key" (it is a squared off fob right?) needs to be reprogrammed I believe. Some auto locksmiths can do this. Dealer certainly can, but they are expensive. Also, sometimes those square fobs have a spare key hidden inside the fob that will work. Not sure of the year models those came with, but I remember using one on a magnum rental car once.

?Had a new starter and new battery put on my 1999 Chevy Tahoe.. we by it starts sometimes and sometime it don't..what could the problem be


I'm assuming just by the fact you had a new battery and new starter that sometimes when you turn the key to the start position , nothing happens . Is your vehicle a automatic transmission ? When it doesn't start have checked for battery voltage at the starter solenoid S terminal ? Is there B+ voltage at pins 30 & 86 for the starter relay ? Pin 86 while cranking the engine or trying to crank the engine over . Pin 30 check with key on . Try moving gear selector to neutral . Videos on youtube for basic automotive electrical testing . How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit Find a wiring diagram at www.bbbind.com
Starting System Circuit Description
Voltage is applied at all times to the ignition switch from the IGN A fuse 6 through CKT 242 (RED). When the ignition switch is turned to the START position, voltage is applied to the CRANK fuse 8 through CKT 5 (YEL). From the CRANK fuse 8, voltage is either applied to the clutch pedal position switch (M/T) or the transmission range switch (A/T) through CKT 806 (PPL). When either the clutch is disengaged (M/T) or the transmission is in park or neutral (A/T), voltage is applied to the coil of the starter relay through CKT 1035 (PPL/WHT). Since the starter relay is permanently grounded at ground G105 through CKT 150 (BLK), the starter relay energizes.
Voltage is applied at all times to the starter relay contacts from IGN A fuse 6 through CKT 242 (RED). When the starter relay energizes, the starter relay contacts close, and voltage is applied to the starter motor solenoid. Since the starter motor solenoid is permanently case grounded, the starter motor solenoid will energize two coils. The pull-in winding coil energizes in order to pull the starter motor solenoid contacts closed. When the contacts close, a plunger on the contacts causes the pull-in winding coil circuit to open. The hold-in winding coil then holds the starter motor solenoid contacts closed. Voltage is then applied to the starter motor from the battery through CKT 1 (BLK) and the closed contacts of the starter motor solenoid. Since the starter motor is also permanently case grounded, the starter motor will run until the ignition switch is moved out of the START position. When this happens, a spring in the starter motor solenoid moves the starter motor solenoid contacts and the plunger back to the rest position.

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

I have a 2002 polaris magnum 325. I put a new starter, ignition switch, relay that goes to the starter and a new battery. It will turn over, but won't start. The starter is engaging also. It will pull...


Since you can start with the pull starter, and not when you crank with electric starter, assuming this machine has electronic ignition it is quite possible that the battery lead in not making good contact with the battery and there is a big voltage drop low enough to affect the ignition system due to the high current drawn by the starter. Try cleaning and retightening both battery leads and the ground lead. Also check the power cable running to the ignition system. Also check for corrosion near the ground connection on the chasis.

Starter relay


Have a voltmeter? stop guessing, use the meter. same time and $$$$
starter? but what are the symptoms. ?????? no start sure. but
1: dead starter (not a sound)?
2: solenoid on starter click?
3: dead solenoid?
4: some times starts if i wiggle A/T shift lever? PRNDL bad.?

my guess, is the relay was good. all a long ?
if the old relay was burned to a crisp in inside (did you look) then
the starter can be shorted. they can in fact short.

we use to simple and cheap tools, a voltmeter and ammeter
The key switch energizes the relay.
the relay has a coil. if the coil goes to 12v, (meter across coil)
then the relay is energized. (cranking)
if that works we look at the relay output. (solenoids can short too)
use the volt meter.
if the voltage at battery sags below 10v. the battery is bad. or the starter is shorted.
we use an ammeter to see that short.
100- 200 amps (no engine stated but is covered in the FSM)

here is a voltage plot.
if you watch current it it goes to 500amps and the solenoid just bangs
the starter is shorted.

test 1:
voltmeter to battery neg lug (black meter lead)
meter on 20vdc range (battery with meter there,,reads 12.6vdc.)
red lead to starter solenoid small wire, key line (sT) i call that.
I turn the key to ST position.
the solenoid ST pin (small) goes to what voltage. key held there.?
no wire pulled, this is a live test.
we do that first.

1995 Taurus. Starter will not disengage. Engine cranks, but will not turn over.


Find the starter relay under the hood. It may be bad and stuck so power continues going to the starter. Try a new relay Or try pulling off the small signal wire on the relay (it is from the switch), and hook battery up. If starter continues to run, the relay is bad. If starter is stopped, put the signal wire back on relay. If starter now starts operating, and key is still off, then switch may be bad .Location of relay may be at left front fender apron, in front of shock tower (like on earlier taurus models).

95 jag, 3.2. wont crank over, no fuel pump running, no spark, all relays and fuses ok, new starter fitted, think its immob. any idea?


The immobilizer if it has one, only gets tripped off in a bump, crash, or getting towed. Does the car have an anti theft device? Is there a key or some type of chip that falls out? If the whole car is dead, I would suspect that, if it just won't crank, then I would suspect the battery, if it lights up and does nothing, I would suspect the computer. If it cranks but doesn't start, then the coils, Or the oil is low and the fuel pump won't kick on. You have to start digging in there. You put in a new starter thinking it was the starter? Get a voltage tester and check the battery, it has to maintain 13.5 volts at all times, check the fluids in the battery. Get it cranking then squirt some fuel into the intake and see if it will fire, pull a plug and see if you have spark, the older cars had a thing called an ignitor under the seat. You might have one and when it goes, it goes. Check it out, hope this helps.

Wont start


check the ignition switch. pull covering off of the column and check switches wires,
reds - should have +12 battery power
white - Ignition output
pink - ignition output
yellow - starter output

these wires are needed to start car.

from the switch the starter wire goes to and neutral position switch. located on transmission. yellow is starter in purple is starter output. if all that is good change the relay moun about the radiator. good luck

If the starter does not turn the engine over you will get no spark. Lets start over. You turn the key , does the engine turn over ? Does it turn over and not crank up and run?

Positive cord from battery to starter


Methinks taht you have a bad starter. When you turn the key to "start", and you hear one click, that is def indicative of bad starter contacts, or the contacts are not coming together correctly. When you keep cycling the key, the contact plunger eventually moves, and then it will hit a "good spot" on the contacts, and then crankk. Aftermarket starters are notorious for this. Get a Toyota starter & install it, or take the starter to someone, and have them replace the contacts. This will def cure your issue. I do about 3-4 starters with this complaint a week here.
