Question about Cars & Trucks
Is it possible that the wire activating engaging the flywheel shook loose, if so which wire? How can I tell which wire and how to fix it?
What year--make--model--engine size?

well, possible cause engaging starter while
running there is a short circuit on your starting
check on ignition switch after starting and
engine run normally,possibility after
cranking and release the key run
engine normally there is short occurd on
solenoid relay.if defective replace this is
mounted separately from starter motor.
usually on near engine there a fuse and
you mention you changed starter motor
and no change,there is starter solenoid
attached directly to starter motor
assembly this to move the plunger pinion
gear that will hook the flywheel to turn.
after cranking and normal engine run.after
that the plunger pinion gear will disengage
by the supply from solenoid relay.so you
must check your solenoid relay circuit.
have a nice day.dont gorget to rate me

Hello, I would make sure that your car is not one of those half year cars becuase two differn't starters may be offered for the same year of car. Also, I would check and see if your battery has enough CCA's to power your system. The only other thing is to turn your crankshaft with a breaker bar to turn your flywheel to possibly get a fresh area of teeth on it. If none of this fails it's as simple as just replacing the flywheel. If you did a bench test on the starter and the bendix engaged that is good. Buying parts from an Auto parts store does not gurantee the part is good and that the bendix engages the full distance to turn the flywheel. I would try to find a mechanic who rebuilds starters to make sure that the bendix is engaging fully. I hope this helps you!

I sit here on this site and help people with their issues all the time, and I do it for free. I've been in the mechanics trade for over 24 years, and I think I have a good idea of what I'm talking about. I don't know it all, and I even need assistance from time to time. The only thing I ask in return for my help, is a good rating from the people I help. Once you replace your solenoid, your issue will be resolved. Yes the fix is that simple. Remember to disconnect the negative cable from the battery before you replace it, so you don't ground anything out.

Craw under the jeep with a screw driver and turn the flywheel a couple notches.....then try starting. If that worked you have a bad spot on your flywheel and will need another or repeat process till you get money for perm repair.[there may be a dust cover to remove]
