Starter relay is good and has a new starter but no power to the starter

Posted by on

1 Answer

You tested the relay to know it is good,
and know how it works inside or switched
with a similar one?

You have voltage to the relays coil, but
no voltage from its power contacts?

Do you have voltage to the solenoid on the new starter?

Does the Starter work direct from the battery?

Check all vehicle fuses?

It is in park or neutral

SOURCE: wont start, new battery, relay good, starter good.

Check the Starter Solenoid mounted near the battery.Check it out in the dark...have someone try to start it and see if it sparks at the solenoid.connections may be loose.Also check/wiggle wiring harness to starter.

Chevy Tahoe Intermittent No Crank


I will try to help, powell. Your start circuit from battery to ignition switch to starter-and back to battery. You may need to check every thing here, including the grounds, for a loose connection, or just possibly a failing part.
If only complaint is intermittent starter action, and no other problems with ignition switch, let's assume switch is good, so battery to ignition switch is good. Now from the switch, a yellow start wire goes to the instrument panel fuse block, to "crank" fuse #8 (10 amp), from there a purple wire goes to the safety switch. If manual it is a clutch pedal position switch (simple on/off switch-when clutch down switch is on). If automatic, purple wire goes to Transmission Range Switch on the transm.-in park or neutral the purple wire has continuity in and out of switch.
From that switch, the purple wire goes to the starter relay (under hood fuse-relay center). Now the relay: purple wire in start will energize the relay- wire goes to coil side of relay, and then coil side goes to ground. On relay power side, the power feed is a red wire-and it is the same red wire that initially sends power to the ignition switch. A 40 amp fuse in fuse-relay center sends power to ignition switch, and a splice goes to the starter relay as the power feed for relay. When relay is energized, contacts close, and power is sent from relay to the starter solenoid, again on a purple wire. When solenoid contacts close, starter motor is connected to the big battery cable on the starter.

There is your start circuit. try a new or different relay, try a new or test the clutch switch (or transm. range switch). Buy a $5 test light and use it to check where power is lost when starter won't operate. Hold key in start and check if fuse #8 is getting power. Check the safety switch, with key held in start, the purple wire should be hot. Check if relay has a power feed (pull relay out and check terminals) and if relay coil has a power signal in start. Check the relay's coil side ground. If that ground is intermittent, relay won't work.
When it won't start, use a test light, you should be able to find it.
Good luck.

Montehammons answered my Mazda 626 starting problem .BUT I wanted to ask, when it will not start I rock it and it starts ??? Trans relay switch?


I'm back, Gary-like that commercial on tv where mechanics chase cars down the road on creepers! You have a failing connection somewhere. If you rock it and it works, don't sound like a relay-don't sound like the neutral safety switch-it really sounds like a failing starter or starter solenoid. To check, wait till it won't start, then check for power at solenoid wire when key is held in crank. If power then, suspect a bad starter or solenoid-have tested. If no power, try a new relay-starter relay. Another relay in your car may be same as the starter relay (same part number) so try swapping a different relay. Again, doesn't sound like relay, but you never know until tested. Good luck.

Nothing happens when turn key. 1984 ford f150 inline 6


Check the small wires to the starter relay for power when the key is turned to start. The small wires activate the relay. If the small wires have power, most likely the relay is bad.

You can bypass the relay with heavy jumpers. Make sure stickshift is in neutral or Park if its an automatic. If starter turns good with jumper, relay is bad.

98 durango will not start good abttery and starter also starter relay is new


Hi queenshit200, I'm glad to help!

First you must make sure you have power from the ignition switch to the ASD Relay. Using a test light, turn the ignition switch to the on position and see if you have power at the relay, if the test lights up when you turn the key on and turns off when you turn the ignition off then it is OK from the ignition switch to the relay. NEXT, you must have battery power to the relay at all times, if you do then that circuit is OK. NEXT: make certain you have a good ground on the body of the vehicle and the engine. Also make sure you have a good power too power connection at the junction where the power wires meet together. If all that is OK, then you'll need to know if the Engine Controller is seeing something it doesn't like. OR it's possible the CRANK SENSOR or something else may be bringing down the BUS CIRCUIT. Unplug one thing at a time and see if it starts. If it does after unplugging that sensor or part then that's what you must replace to fix it. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.

Had new starter motor fitted, but stll have to push to start.


Hello, You need to check the Starter Relay. The Starter Relay connects the Battery to the Starter when you turn the Key to Start. There are 1 or 2 small wires that connect on the Starter Relay.

The idea is the Key sends power to the small wire to make the Starter Relay work. You need to test the Starter Relay. Have your car in Neutral and out of gear. You can use a jumper cable and bypass the Starter Relay by connecting one end of the Single jumper cable to the terminal connector from the Battery where it mounts on the Starter Relay. The other end will be live, hot, and full of power so watch where you lay it.

Then there will be sparks when you touch the end of the jumper cable to the mounting connector coming from the Starter where it bolts onto the Starter Relay. The Starter should crank. This will mean the new Starter is good. You can use any metal tool to bypass the Starter Relay if you do not have a jumper cable. Be Careful, the tool can melt and burn you.

One final test is needed. The small wires I mentioned earlier are important to making the Starter Relay work. You need to see if the small wire is getting power when the Ignition Key is turned to Start. You need a test light or Voltmeter to show if the small wire is providing power. If the small wire is providing power, then you need to replace the Starter Relay and you are good to go.

If you are not getting power through the small wire, then you must trace down the problem. There is a Safety switch on the clutch linkage or Brake linkage which must be pressed before it lets the Starter work. This is called an Interlock switch. There can also be a safety switch in the shift linkage which must be in Neutral before allowing the Starter to work. These get power from the Ignition switch which may also be bad.

You most likely fixed the problem just by replacing the Starter Relay. If you do not want to test, just buy a Starter Relay. I gave you extra information for bad switches and how to pinpoint the problem and this time you might not need to know this stuff.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

98 Dodge Dakota starter problems. New starter, new battery cables.new starter relay,battery test out good. it was giving us problems last weekend and replaced the parts we thought it might be,it started...


Good Evening, As long as you have good power and ground to the starter you should be fine, however what I would suggest first is pulling the starter relay and jumping 30 and 87 and see if the starter kicks over. If it does it means your trigger wire from the relay is good (might have to have the key on for the power to be on to the one leg but i do not believe so). If that works then I would suspect a ignition switch I have seen this happen before, one way to see is if you take your test light to where the relay is and take it out and one leg either 85 or 86 is going to be your switching from the key. If neither switches either power or ground when the switch is moved to the start position I would lean towards the ignition switch. Do the first test and go from there. Let me know if you need any more help.

When I turn the key in the ignition the car won't start and the starter makes no sound. It has a new battery and a new alternator. What I can I do besides set it on fire?


You may have a bad starter, the best to determine this is by testing for power at the starter,also the battery is new but is it still good and fully charged, you may what to make sure battery is fully charged first, then test starter with a test light, there are two connection at starter, one is a battery cable this has power at all times then the small wire,this should have power when key is held in the crank postion,have someone hold the key while you test. if theres power at both connections then starter is bad, heres a diagram to show you where to test starter.5eb28af.jpg

1999 Chevy 3500 PU 5.7l gas. No power to starter there is one fuse #8 called "crank" that does not have power to it fuse is good just no power to it fuses to the left and right are good. All other fuses...


If your starter relay clicks, check for power coming out of the relay. You most likely have a starter issue, or if you have an aftermarket alarm, remove that first.
