SOURCE: truck won't start

you should check the fender mounted Starter solenoid, and what type of power is going to your starter? constant Battery Power Or Start Power if you have both then you should check your Engine to Chassis ground Strap for a loose connection. Good luck!

SOURCE: tested new starter and it works offline, but when I install starter on my 77 Ford f150, the truck doesn't turn over, why?

Was there any symptoms prior to the vehicle not starting? Could engine have seized? Is it auto or manual? If manual can you put into gear and push the vehicle to see if the engine moves freely?

If the starter is new and installed could there be another problem as to why it won't start

If it won't crank the motor, then you may have a bad starter solenoid, or a bad battery or a dirty battery connection or a bad ground connection or a dirty connection to the solenoid or starter, or the new starter could be miswired.

If it cranks the motor but the motor won't start, then there are lots of OTHER things that might be causing your problem. Fuel pump, ignition trouble, any of quite a lot of different sensors, computer, fouled plugs, carburetor (if older than about 1987)... we'll really need to know what make, model, and year the vehicle is, and if it has a "Check Engine" light illuminated on the dashboard.

Thought it was the starter.Installed new starter,also installed new positive battery cable and charged battery and it started right up for 1 day.It now cranks slowly or just clicks like the battery is...

More likely its the alternator. Not putting out enough or the regulator inside it. Just possible its the battery. The main starter relay is the cylinder attached to the starter. When you changed the starter you got a new relay. Take the car to a Auto Zone auto parts store or similar, and ask them to check the alternator out put. They may have you remove to bench test it, but with luck will put a meter on while running. `They can also test the battery to see if that is the fault.
Good luck.

I have a 1995 geo tracker installed a starter , it started fine but negative post on battery got hot now wont start at all just clicks

new battery....or alternator.....try boosting it if it starts leave it running and remove cables... if it quits when u remove jumper cables then u need alternator or check its fuseable link ........if it stays running it was your battery and your starter was probably ok i...u didnt need to change it or both starter and battery were bad ....starters kill batteries when they are failing and start to draw too much amperage from battery ...another quick way to tell a battery is dead,,,,,,is to look and see if its swollen or bulging...tis the season for batteries and alternaters ;-) good luck

Takes a jump to start but dies

More infomation neededas if the battery is new and the truck still needs a jump start then the battery /or wiring/Starter motor etc are no good as the battery is good for 12.5 volts and when running 13.5 max gharge so the engine should start and run 100% Unless you have a bad short somewere..
Also check fuel pump feed .
But check Starter motor first

1983 240 Volvo-won't start, here are the details

sounds like a defective ignition switch, not the key cylinder but the actual switch, the contacts that run the fuel pump during cranking are different than the ones that run it after start is released, this may be the problem, the run contacts are defective, fairly common concern..

My starter teeth all broke off any reasons

Drive may have been engaged when engine running, like as in accidentally forgetting it was already running, or drive was sticky & stayed engaged after start up. If this is first time it's happened, I wouldn't panic, but observe flywheel/ring gear teeth when you change starter. Check for good alignment when installing new one, just to be sure. Any odd noises from starter prior to this happening?

Now what? Changed alternator but car still won't start.

a dropped/disconected starter solenoid cable is a good candidate, a heavy cable runs from the battery to the starter, a lighter cable runs from the ignition to the starter solenoid, the ignition key throws the solenoid which engages the starter pinion gear in the flywheel, and connects the cable to spin the starter motor. even loose may not be producing enoug current to fully engage the starter.
there is a fusible link in the battery cable that is a good candidate.
if the battery were disconnected during alternator changeover, look for loose cables at the battery posts, and corrosion on the posts.
if the battery was not disconnected look for collapsed positive plates on one or more cells of the battery..
