The start relay is sticking or is getting a close signal from a wire that is shorted. This is easy to troubleshoot by pulling the relay out of its socket and interrogating the socket terminals with a volt/ohmmeter. If you reply with model and year, I can provide the troubleshooting procedure.

SOURCE: starter spins but doesnt start engine

Starter drive spinning but not shooting out into flywheel for turning engine over. If you remove it & grease up the shaft of the starter that it slides on & keep working it on the bench, you may save some money. Once you have it lubed & working good one bench, put it back in & give it a try. Take a look at gear teeth for damage while it's on the bench as well.

SOURCE: starter enabler fuse blows which means the starter motor does not work until fuse is changed

It is possible that the starer is pulling too much amperage- 1st thing you need to do is find out what if any other consumers are on that circuit, 2nd you need to find out how much amperage is being consumed by the starter. 3rd test you wires most likely if a wire problem it is the heavy hot wire on the starter or the back of the alternator has a loose retaining nut

Turn key. starter engages flywheel engine start to turn over. Then starter disengages form flywheel but continues to spin without care actually starting.


There maybe a problem with starter motor? Some of the national brand auto stores will test starter for you. Of course, you have to take it off and take it to them.


You could take the starter off, lay it on the ground, Hook up jumper cables properly from starter to battery. The starter should kick-out the drive gear and spin. If starter drive gear kicks out and in, something is wrong. Anymore I replace starter solenoid and starter motor as an assembly.

It wouldn't hurt anything to check flywheel teeth while your at it.

Starter grinds and engine doesn't turn over when it does start it runs fine


Typically this sounds like a chewed up ring gear or flex plate but if you recently replaced that, the likely culprit is the pinion gear on the starter. It could be chewed up or the starter is not throwing it out enough. Also could be that the starter isn't properly shimmed.

Hi there i have a 2004 mk6 ford fiesta bassically starter motor continues to spin while engine is running i changed the starter motor about a month ago because i thought that was the problem it seemed to...


i would think this is an ignition switch problem if starter spins when ign key removed, the ign switch isn't cutting power to the starter circuit ,remove the steering column cowling panels and check for loose wires etc , with a voltmeter find the cranking wire , only comes live when key turned to starting position and should give no power when key returned to normal position , i suspect it is internal to the switch , you could try spraying wd40 into the switch barrel in case there is a sticking part otherwise a new ign switch will be required good luck ,keep me posted if you wish

I have 1995 Nissan Quest. The car was running good. It has engine and Transmission mounts cracked. So I replace it and now the car will not start. When I turn on the key, I can hear the continues rattle...


Get a Chiltons/Haynes repair manual for this make/model/year. It has a procedure with pics for doing mount r&r and can tell you the most common mistakes people make when doing this procedure. The troubleshooting guide can also lead you down repair paths you might not have thought of.

well since the starter was only 2 months old i am betting its an ignition short. When u turn the key, the solenoid on the starter engages the bendix gear with the engines flywheel and then energizes the starter motor. And when u release the ignition the solenoid and the starter motor should de-energize. hope this helps you.

Toyota fortuner wont start


I picked up the same problem now..
I changed the starter since the starter was dragging.
The vehicle starts much quicker.
However. That elimanted the drag starting.
It hasnot eliminated the main problem, turning the key full to start and only sometimes it takes to start.
Checked the fuses and all relays. All earths.
All 100%.
Cud be the ignition? .
Cud be bad battery terminals?
Any other suggestions....

My engine will not turn over


Hi, It is the starter. The starter has 2 functions. 1 to push out the running gear and the other is to turn the gear(s). What you hear is the motor spinning the gear but it does not push out. So you will have to remove the starter and have it bench tested to make sure. Then take it to an auto parts store and get a new one.Good luck.

99 dodge ram 3500 diesel starter will not shut off with key, turn off key and starter moter stays engaged and engine has run on. had to disconnect both batteries. gently tapped starter selenoid with hammer...


it sounds like the starter solenoid contacts are not separating to stop the starter from turning.the run on is due to the starter not stopping causing the motor to continue to spin.replace the starter unit as it will have damage due to being engaged with the motor running,also have the flywheel inspected to make sure the teeth are not damaged on it.

Does it have spark , fuel pressure ? If the starter spins the engine an does not start an run , you have a fuel delivery problem or a ignition system problem . There are videos on youtube showing how to test for these .

What do i have to do to swap a inertia starter motor for a pre-engaged starter motor on my ford mk2 escort


A lot of work !!!
The engine or gearbox will removing.
You will need to find a pre-engaged starter ring (not sure that one was produced)
Take off flywheel and change over ring gears.. then reassemble.
Why do you want to change it ?
