Won't crank when warm


It is possible that the solenoid on the starter binds when the starter is hot. When you say that the starter was tested, was it tested hot?

Does the starter click when you attempt to start it? When you turn the key, the switch energises a small relay, which in turn energises the solenoid, which in turn applies power to the starter motor.
The solenoid should make an audible sound when it pulls in the plunger.

If you have a second person, one could turn the key, and another could gently hit the solenoid with a rubber or plastic hammer. This worked on a Dodge minivan that I had.

Starter won't engage heat gauge goes across to hot when trying to start truck. What causes this?


Voltage drop? I'm guessing you don't have a voltmeter, so turn on the headlights and observe them as someone tries to start the truck. If the lights go out, bad connection at battery, starter, or ground. If the lights get dim, probably the starter-it's drawing power, just not working. If the lights don't change, check for power going to the starter solenoid on the small wire on the starter; voltmeter or test light, check if the small wire to the solenoid has power when key is held in start position-in crank position. There should be battery voltage there when the key is turned to crank. If so, the starter or solenoid is bad. If no power there to solenoid, power is lost somewhere between ignition switch and the starter wire.

Truck won't turn over ? battery new /good connections/ starter and solenoid tested and passed/


If the truck his fuel injector with ignition modules, check the ignition pick-up sensor located in the lower side (or else) of the engine block. tt sends signal to truck computer in order to start the engine.

2001 jaguar s-type won't crank battery new and charged. Turn the ignition car won't make a sound


many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.

2008 malibu classic won't start


Grab a test light go down to the starter, hook to a good ground and probe the battery cable. If that has power probe the solenoid engage wire( its the little one) have a helper turn the key to start if that gets power replace the starter.

My 1991 ford f250 will not even respond no clicking or grinding nothing at all when switch is turn over


I think you have a couple of problems going on here. First a solenoid would not cause the engine to lose power until it dies. This problem will probably be an alternator going bad, bad battery, or bad battery connections (check ground wires on engine, body, and battery then check positive wires on battery and to power distribution block). These related issues can be the root cause to solve the starting issue, which I will discuss now.
I recently repaired a 94 F-150 that would not even click when trying to start it. It was the push on connector to the solenoid on passenger inner fender well. I have also seen where this solenoid loses its ground (corrosion between screws and fender well). The 94 had two solenoids, one on the fender and one on the starter. To see if the solenoid valve is good, you can use a jumper wire from the hot side of the solenoid to the small terminal stud. If it clicks it should be okay and the ground okay. Be sure to have the vehicle in park or neutral with the parking brake on before doing this, because you are bypassing safeties.

It sounds like a fault in the starter circuit. It could be a defective neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, or possible a defective ignition switch but I doubt it. Can you hear the starter solenoid??? I'm willing to bet the problem is either with starter relay, neutral safety switch, or starter solenoid.

Are you sure your battery is good and able to take and keep a full charge? The only thing in the start circuit that could cause a big drain on the battery is a shorted starter. But if you can send power and it cranks okay, I don't think you have a bad starter.

Is the ignition key on when you crank it and have no spark? Does your distributor rotor turn when the engine is cranking?

I would try a new solenoid. If it clicks it should send power on to the starter on the big cable. Make sure all battery and ground connections are clean and tight. If still a problem, buy a voltmeter and learn how to do voltage drop tests. This will help find bad connections.

Truck will not start how can i tell if its a starter or selonoid


does it spin real fast without clanging and grinding against the flywheel? if so then its probably the solenoid bad. do you have to hit the starter with a hammer then it works? it is probably bad brushes or a worn motor. eather way i think you can only get a new starter and solenoid together not sold seperate. check for bad battery cables (loose).

I think my starter is bad. How do I confirm/fix?


Make sure the small wire on the solenoid has a good contact. If it does, check that there is +power to there when trying to start. If there is power and a good contact, and the starter still won't crank, try shorting the two bolt terminals on the solenoid (carefull, it will spark). If the starter cranks then it's okay, suspect solenoid.If the solenoid is okay you should hear it kicking in.
