Starter motor solenoid wont engage


There is condenser shaped part attched to the starter moter this is the part which makes the starter moter to spin and when it is stuck the moter does not spin you can check it by one person sitting in the car holding the key to start position and another one hit it softly with some spanner or something The starter moter will move there is a small gear in it which requires replace ment Or the other possible reason can be the carbon brushes in the starter moter are worn out or the place where these brushes touch on armature the place is worn out that Y ou will only come to know when you will take the moter away from the engine Lastly I hope you might have checked your battery that it is giving sufficient current to the moter

HELP! My 2000 plymouth neon wont crank and no mechanic i bring it to can figure it out!!


If the headlights and dashboard lights are working but the vehicle still does not start, the ignition switch is most likely the problem. or a bad wire from switch. If your battery checks out, but the starter is still silent, it may be a faulty ignition switch. Turn the key to the on position (not all the way to start). If the red warning lights on your dash don't light up (and your battery connections are clean), the ignition switch is bad. If they do light up, turn the key to the start position. The dash warning lights should turn off at this key position (most cars). If you're not sure, turn on the headlights. When you try to start the car, the lights should either dim (a lot) or turn off completely. If they do, your ignition switch should be ok. If not, the switch will need replacement. check the wires to starter and see if you have power when car is switched on, do this first! good-day! if it cranks but does not start. check to see if spark and fuel, and check all fuses also.

I have a 2005 dodge neon 2.0L sxt and ive replaced my motor mounts my battery, the starter, belt, a new key, and the egnition switch and my car still acting up. when my car sit over night it will start and...


The clicking noise is probably the starter solenoid. It sits on top of the starter. It has two large terminals, one from the battery and one to the starter. Jump these with a large screwdriver, make sure the car is in neutral or park and the ingition is off. If the starter turns then the solenoid is faulty.

Where is the starter located in a 2000 plymouth neon


The starter is located under the car where the transmission and engine meet toward the front of the neon. The starter actually bolts up with face toward the transmission. You must get the car up on ramps or on a hoist to see the starter.

Removal:
  • Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  • Raise vehicle on hoist.
  • Remove starter bolts.
  • Remove starter assembly.
  • Disengage latch and remove solenoid connector from starter assembly.
  • Remove battery positive connector from starter assembly.
  • It is not necessary to remove the alternator output lead from the connector.
Installation:
  • Clean corrosion/dirt from the cable and wire terminals before installing wiring to the solenoid.
  • Attach battery positive connector to starter.
  • Ensure alternator output connector is snapped into the battery positive connector.
  • Tighten the captive nut to 10 Nm (90 in. lbs.) .
  • CAUTION: It is critical that the alternator output terminal be connected to the battery positive terminal of the starter solenoid, for proper operation of the charging and cranking systems.
  • Install solenoid connector to starter.
  • Ensure that latch is fully engaged.
  • Position the starter face into transmission housing.
  • Start bottom mounting bolt and thread in until bolt is snug.
  • Attach ground cable to upper starter mounting bolt.
  • Ensure the proper starter alignment before tightening the starter mounting bolts to 54 Nm (40 ft. lbs.) torque.
  • Lower vehicle and connect negative battery cable.

I have a 98 plymouth voyager that does not crank. all lights and everything comes on but no crank. had battery and starter tested good. replaced fuel pump but still does not crank. please help!!


Check the transmission neutral start inhibit switch is not the cause of your problem. (try both 'P' to 'N' positions).
If the headlights work ok there should be enough power in the battery to at least make a solenoid type noise when start is attempted.
Check the battery terminals are clean and firmly attached to the battery,
Check battery is properly grounded to the chassis and motor,
Check that +12v is available at the starter motor engage solenoid when the ignition switch is held in the 'start' position - check any start slave relay operation.
If all above is OK, you may have a faulty starter motor.

If the starter is turning the motor over, you might want to check to see if the fuel pump is working

1998 Plymouth Neon only "clicks" when you try to start it.


Hello;
Check the voltage at the battery. It should be in the 12.5+ volt range. Check your connections also to be sure they are clean and tight. A quick check to see if there is enough juice to crank the engine over is to turn the ignition switch to start and at the same time honk the horn. If the horn blows and the starter does not crank, you probably have a bad starter.
The starter is located on the radiator side of the engine block and is held to the transaxle by 2 bolts. Follow the positive cable to the starter. Hope this helps;
Thanks;
Rich
