I don't know exactly where your starter is located but I can help you figure it out. If you go to this website you will see a picture of what it is you are looking for: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/catalog/parts/partsShelf.jsp?categoryDisplayName=External+Engine&fromType=parts&fromString=search&parentId=cat30063&currentPage=1&filterByKeyWord=starter&isSearchByPartNumber=false&navValue=15300045&categoryNValue=15399999&fromWhere=&itemId=prod61198&displayName=Starter&searchText=starter Now that you know what you are looking for, you need to follow the positive (should be red) wire from your battery and it will lead in the direction of the engine block. At the end of that wire you will find your starter. Hope this helps. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

How to diagnois problem with no scanner


Eliminate the battery as the issue first up.
Check if you can jump start the car from another vehicle with its engine running or at least have the starter motor kick over the engine. If it starts then you know your battery is the issue. Having lights does not mean the battery has enough cold cranking amps to turn over the starter motor.

2. If the starter cranks the engine over as normal with a jump start from another car but your engine does not start you have also eliminated the starter motor as the issue.

3. If it does not start and the starter motor will not crank the engine over either when you jump start from another vehicle, then there may well be a problem with the starter solenoid, the starter motor itself or with the wiring to the starter solenoid or to the starter motor. No power getting to the starter motor solenoid or to the starter motor and obviously the starter motor will not turn over.

4. So I need not write much more here, there is a very good guide to solving starting issues here which I suggest you might like to read.

My 2003 Isuzu Rodeo will not start it clicks when I try to crank it.


If it is just clicking then the starter motor is not turning over and you will not be able to start the engine.

You need to check...
1. The starter motor relay. If it has failed you will get no power to the starter motor and you replace it with a new relay. Your owners manual shows you the location of the relay.

2. Check the power supply to the starter solenoid and then from the starter solenoid to the starter motor itself.

3. If these are getting the correct current then you may have either a failed starter motor solenoid or the motor itself. Do not just replace the starter motor and assume that will fix the problem (as some people do) without doing all the essential wiring and current checks. If there is a wiring failure or the starter unit is not receiving the correct power you need to address that issue.

The P0240 code I believe has nothing to do with the starting issue. It relates to the catalytic converters on the exhaust system.
Read about the issue from the link below or look up numerous other references.

1990 zx10 starter just spins does not engage the motor to turn over how do I fix it I've already replace with a new starter...same issues...


the solenoid is not moving the pinion gear forward to engage in the flywheel so check that you have connected the wire from the starter switch correctly. Next point to check --if this is an auto matic vehicle ,check that the flex plate has not broken away and not in the position for the pinion gear to engage ti.
