starter solenoid is getting hot and sticking. you can replacae the solenoid rather than the whole starter. while youre at it, clean all the wire connectors and terminals with some sandpaper to ensure the best possible connection and transfer of energy.
Is it an automatic transmission?
Automatics regularly suffer this way. The starter is right next to the exhaust manifold. When the solenoid gets too hot, it takes a lot of "juice" to build up the same level of magnetism. Your wimpy wiring from the dash board can't provide what you need. You need to provide more amperage by installing a relay to directly pull power from the battery. See this thread for a diagram.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Letter C... Then starting issues?

Check the output voltage of your alternator by starting your car and place a voltmeter to your battery's + and - ... it should read 13.5-14.5 volts, or if your car won't start, have it tested at auto parts store (they will do it for free usually). Im pretty sure your alternator is ok, but it does need checked. If your voltage is within range (give or take 0.5 volts), then you need to check to see if your battery is taking charge. You can have it tested at autoparts store as well, but if your car does indeed start, and your testing it this way, turn off vehicle and let it sit for 30 min. Check battery voltage. It should read 12.5 to 14.5, (no lower than 12.5v) If your battery reads low, then it is refusing to charge and your battery is bad. If your battery reads fine, then you can run this test of your other starter components this way:

1. Make sure your battery is fully charged.
2. Check connections from battery to starter relay.
3. Make sure you have voltage going to the start side (small wire) of the relay with the key in the "start" position.
4. If you don't have voltage going to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in the start positon, then your starter switch is faulty (under dash usually mounted on top of steering column).
5. If you have voltage to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in start position, and it don't click when trying to start your car, then the starter relay is bad.
6. If your starter relay clicks, but engine don't turn over, then the starter is faulty.

1992 Suzuki Sidekick won't start

Are you in gear and not in neutral?
Could be your starter is dead, test your battery with a Multimeter and ensure that you're reading at least 12.5 volts.

If you're reading 12.5 or less 12.3 then your battery is in fact dead.

You could have a blown starter relay, fuze or a low battery causing a ticking sound. Your starter may have shorted out and the ticking you hear could be the starter solenoid.

Shift it into neutral and try. If it starts, the neutral safety switch needs to be adjusted. Some have made a starter bypass mode using a relay feeding the started directly from the battery. Check out

I have a 1992 toyota 4wd 3l that has been starting really hard especially on cold mornings. i cleaned the cold start injector and changed the timmer but it still does it. can anyone help? thanks rick

Check your battery for proper volts (12.6). Sometimes the cold weather will bring a battery down. Also check the Starter Relay, again cold weather will make it stick causing it not to start. Those are the biggest problems with a car not starting in the cold weather unless you have something else going on then your starter and your ignition needs to be checked.

Sounds like a bad starter relay. When you turn your key to start, current flows through a relay which in turns supplies 12 volts to the solenoid on your starter motor. As you alluded to , typically the common clicking sound that we all hear occasionally, is usually related to a flat battery or bad starter motor, but as you have had these checked (by a professional?) the only possibility is the relay that supplies 12 volts DC to your starter motor solenoid.
Thought you might find this interesting to help you understand ignition systems:

Sounds like the starter solenoid is working, but the starter motor isn't. If you have a voltmeter or test light, measure for light/12 volts at the motor terminal while someone tries the key. If the solenoid is what is 'clicking', but nothing at the motor terminal, change the solenoid. If you get light/12 volts, then the motor itself is in trouble.

There are two ways to hook up an immobilizer on a car. One is to break the continuity of the ignition system power suplly. This would result in an engine that cranks but wont start. Another way is to break the continuity of the starting relay. If an installer knows what he is doing he would wire it so that the relay wont get power to the coil. This would result in a car that don't even click when you turn the key so I doubt it is the immobilizer. If the starting relay clicks, the contacts on the relay might be worn out, and not getting enough current to drive the solenoid. One way to check this is by using a volt meter. And check to see if there are voltages going to the starter solenoid, when the key is turned. It should be almost the same as battery voltage. If the voltage going there are no voltage going to the solenoid, or the voltage going there is low, for exmple 8 volts then the contact on the relay is bad. Remember this is if the relay clicks. If the click is loud, and coming from the starter itself but it wont turn, replace the starter, that means the starter solenoid is bad, or if you can buy just the solenoid it maybe cheaper, but you have to know how to take a starter apart, I dont recommend that tho. Good luck these should solve the problem.

Car wont start....

Suspect your battery.
Charge it up, or get a jump start, then get the battery tested !

Good Luck !
