You will need a a 12v power source. Pull the relay and attach the positive lead to the terminal labled 85, and the negitive lead to terminal 86. If you hear a click, the relay is working.

Not a lot to go on Barry Tatum,

Welcome to FIXYA. I looked at your (1 entry) history
in hopes of finding any clue as to ...

Year, make & model ... perhaps even engine
could prove useful to sort out what
"Starterrelay" is supposed to convey.

For serious QUESTIONS... I always recommend QUALITY DOCUMENTS ... Typically:

for USA Market vehicles:

Check for your models FREE WIRING DIAGRAMS & TECH SERVICE BULLETINS at BBB Industries site

As to your specific area of concern (???)
I'm not seeing it... Oh well...

2004 windstar wont start plenty of power but wont start no clicking sounds

What year ? For the 2004 model year, the Windstar was renamed the Ford Freestar. Anti-theft light lit on instrument cluster ? Battery good ! How about the battery cables ? Voltage drop test the starting system . Videos on you tube Starter Voltage Drop
Starter System The starting system cranks the engine at a speed fast enough to permit the engine to start.
  • Heavy cables, connectors and switches are used because of the large current required by the starter motor (11002) while it cranks the engine.
  • The amount of resistance in the starting circuit must be kept to a minimum to provide maximum current for starter motor operation.
  • A discharged or damaged battery (10655), loose or corroded connections or partially broken cables will cause slower than normal cranking speeds and may prevent the starter motor from cranking the engine.
The starting system includes:
  • the permanent magnet gear-reduction starter motor with a solenoid-actuated drive.
  • the battery.
  • a starter switch (part of the ignition switch (11572)).
  • the transmission range (TR) sensor.
  • The TR sensor in the starter control circuit prevents operation of the starter motor unless the selector lever is in NEUTRAL or PARK.
  • Starter Relay-Interrupt The starter relay (14N089) interrupt-consists of:
    • pull-in coil and
    • contacts.
    When the ignition switch is in the START position:
    • Current passes through the starterrelay-interrupt from the engine compartment power distribution box to the starter solenoid (11390) .
    • Anti-theft controller module activates relay-interrupt.
    • Pull-in coil in the starter relay-interrupt is activated and pulls the contacts apart.
    The starter relay-interrupt is deactivated when the ignition switch is in the RUN or OFF position.

Starterrelay 2007 chryslermagnum engine will not turn over

turn over means , ZERO !
does the starter turn over or does the crank shaft turn over.?
see that gross ambiguity?
engines CRANK , the starter can spin fast and the crankshaft sits still.
then starts (EFI does this part, spark and fuel)
then sustain start called running. (EFI keeps to so...)
its 3 steps, which does yours fail. no crank>?

if confused, look at the crank shaft damper pulley.
you can see the actually crank spin .
most folks know the sound of cranking is good. a very unique sound.

no crank
no start
stalls after starting

I can't start my 1995 Wrangler. I have had the battery and the starter checked, both are good. My book mentions a "remote start relay", but doesn't tellme where it isor what it does,...

When you turn the ignition to start, the current going from the ignition switch to the starter actually goes to energize a relay which then sends full battery power to the starter solenoid to spin the starter. If that starter relay is bad, it will not "relay" the full battery power to the starter and the starter will not crank.

When I was driving my Grand Cherokee in the night, suddenly all the lights went off, and after three or four seconds, the lights went on, without my intervention. I went to the dealer, and he du not know ...

This is a common thing with these Grand Cherokees! Horrible wiring! They have a lot of shorting problems! I was having the same problem but my lights were flickering on and off over every little bump i went over! You'll just have to find the short in the wiring!

My check engine light came on when i started it up, then when i let it sit for 20 min and went back to drive it the light went off.. any ideas whats worng with it?

Hello. You need to get your car's computer scanned to know why the light went on. AAMCO shops scan for free as do many auto parts stores. Just call around to get a free scan and then you will know exactly what is going on. regards, Joe
PS please rate my answer as helpful. Thanks.
