Sounds like the solenoid is bad.The solenoid uses a small amount of current from the start device to control your feed to the starter from the battery. It is an electro-magnetic device and is subject to wear over time. Service on these is replacement only.You might want to check that the starter button/switch is feeding current to the solenoid when you try to start it up.good luck

If I unplug all the wires from the motor to the wiring harnesses which wires do I run to the coil to make it fire, 97 timber wolf


It does not make any sense to try to make the engine run with the engine harness disconnected (it won't work). If you are trying to TEST the coil, test it by very briefly applying 6V(DC) at the primary and check for high-voltage spark at the secondary at the moment you remove the voltage.

Wont start turn over with key but can jump accross starter


solinoid for starter is bad. on a lot of fords the solinoid is mounted on fender, under hood. if you jump from one side to other on solinoid, and it tries to start then solinoid is toast. just follow the positive cable from battery. and you will find it.

Fist of all the ignition switch tuns with out key its been laid up seveveral years.had to jump solinoid to get engine to run .so i replaed solinoid nowwhen you turn the key nothing happens youneed to jump...


As the car has been laid up many years, it needs a thorough servicing. Besides a solenoid in the starter motor, there is a bendex as well. Its role is to push the starter pinion forwards to enable it to engage the flywheel when you turn the key. And when the key is turned backwards then this pinion is pulled backwards. This goes bad sometimes as most of the things do. So it should be repaired. Then the starter motor will start functioning as it should.

Car will not start


If the car would not turn over with the key but did start by jumping the solinoid, I would change the solinoid. Even if the car died after you did this the solinoid could be the culprit since it sends power to more than just the starter. Cant gurentee it, but I think thats your problem.

Starter wont engage


The problem is either the starter solinoid (located on fender near battery) or you are not getting power to the "s" terminal on the starter solinoid from the ignition switch. If you follow the positive battery cable from the battery you'll follow it to the solinoid. Remove the small wire from the terminal marked "s" on the solinoid and using a screwdriver jump from "s" terminal (not the wire) to where positive battery cable connects to solinoid. (with battery connected). If starter doesn't do anything the solinoid is bad. If starter cranks then you are not getting voltage from ignition switch through "s" terminal wire.

1999 mitsubishi eclips, I try to start and it doesn't start, it won't crank. And I jump start the starter and the starter seam to be ok, battery ok, starter relay ok.


it could be a crank sensor, does it turn over? if it does, check for spark and fuel pressure, if it doesnt crank at all it could be an ignition switch
