Okay I want to say get an ignition switch for the starting problem. The wire that makes the solenoid work comes from the s terminal on the ignition switch. The ignition (i) side of the ignition switch goes to the coil. The running and dying could be the coil. Both wires start at the ignition switch. Check those two wires for connections. Take out the switch and see if the (i) and (s) terminals do anything when you turn the key.

Will not start unles you jump start


Check the starter/solenoid. If you have a weak starter or solenoid, it could need the extra voltage put into your electrical system when doing a jump start.

96 Monte carlo z34 won't crank over unless I jump


Sounds like a problem with the key switch, probably the security system. You may only have power to the fuel pump when the engine is cranking.
Is the security light on or flashing ?

Starter motor car won't start


I am guessing that you already suspect the starter motor. If the battery is fully charged and the car won't crank over that could be the problem. You could try jumping across the starter solenoid first, if you can get to it and see if maybe it is just the solenoid. You could take the starter to a place like AutoZone and they can test it for you.

Truck has electrical power but won't turn over. I think I can hear the starter solenoid engaging. Not sure. where do I start trouble shooting?


Safety first!--Make sure you're in park & brake on-- Try shorting across the starter terminals with a screwdriver,if the bendix kicks in & nothing spins,remove the starter & put in bench vice ,(or hold down securely), & jump with cables.--REMEMBER POLARITY--If the starter spins you are in deep *******---something in the motor is probably locked up.(If the starter doesn't spin get a new one.)

1966 mustang 289. won't start, jumped across solenoid, started. Replaced solenoid-starter wouldn't disengage, replaced starter, back to square 1, jumping across solenoid to start - whats my...


Ignition problem... No signal from ignition to solenoid...run a starter draw test to confirm starter is ok --- You can run your jump wires to a remote starter button or switch to get around it for now.

I hope this helps.

4x4 1990 f150 will not start


Does the truck turn over but won’t start? If so there is a fusible link running from the starter solenoid behind the battery.
Also if you get nothing when you turn the key could be the solenoid. Its easy enough to jump the solenoid and check . Check all the fusible links coming off the power side of the solenoid and replace as needed.
