Provided you've checked the battery terminals are tight, definitely starter solenoid problem. One surefire check, is to get a friend to tap the top of the startermotor with steel rod, or similar, at the same time you turn the key, the engine nearly always starts, if it's a sticking solenoid. If your'e skint like me, it's not impossible to dismantle starter, remove solenoid, and clean with wd40, done it myself on freelander, no probs, but time consuming.

What you describe is the classic symptom of a failed starter motor. It's not the motor itself, but the starter solenoid which has failed and as they're part of the starter motor assembly on modern vehicles you have to replace the complete starter motor.

It is an easy DIY job if you have the right tools (a 1/2" square drive socket set and a few spanners). Otherwise, expect to pay for half an hour's labour on top of whatever the starter costs.

1998 massey 1250 diesel tractor has a new battery but will not turn over. When you turn the key everything go off and does not turn the starter


Question ,was it running before this happened

If so ,try and turn the crank shaft ,if it turns then the problem is either a battery cable , check connections at battery and starter and also the ground .

If this fails , take a pair of jumper cables hook to battery with out battery cables hooked up .

Then hook ground from jumper cables to frame and positive to large stud on starter solinoid , take screw driver touch large post of starter to small post on starter solenoid if it just clicks or does nothing replace starter.

Be very careful these are large amperage's your working with ,and can be dangerous ! if not comfortable with this method then just take starter out and have it tested in town.

BATTERY WONT TURN OVER MAKING A CLICKING SOUND


A single click when you turn the key to the crank position usually indicates a bad starter. A rapid clicking noise usually indicates a dead battery. If you hear a click and everything goes dead there is a bad connection at the battery.

Car wont start totally dead lights and power work no radio though


Check fuse # 8 -20 amp and look for the starter relay. The fuses and relays are in a black box under the hood near battery. The lid of the box will tell you every fuse and relay. There should be a spare fuse in the box or take one from another circuit and try to start the car0996b43f8022dd2d.gif

My starter on my 2002 Suzuki XL 7 died today in my garage. At first I thought it was my battery...battery is fine. I was told it sounds like my starter since there is not juice or sound when I turn the key...


The first thing is to make sure the battery terminals and connectors are clean and free of corrosion so the starter can getr enough power to operate. To find your starter follow the large red wire that goes to the bottom side area of the engine. It will be held on by two bolts.
