SOURCE: 93 Jeep Grand Cherokee Won't start

The crankshaft position sensor was seriously problematic in those old jeeps. It's located towards the top of the bell housing slightly to the driver's side I think.

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.

SOURCE: falls dead when driving, will restart after awhile

Did you try checking or replacing the coolant sensor? I think you should replace it along with the thermostat. Are there any problems like sputtering or any unusual noises or symptoms? Smoke, anything?

SOURCE: 1998 toyota sienna occassionally not starting.

The gear reduction starter on this motor has a pattern failure of the solenoid contacts that transmit the voltage to the starter brushes. There is a repair kit available for replacing the contacts or you might just change the starter with a rebuilt unit. Intermittent function is almost always this problem.

Engine wont crank, no fuel pump running but has ignition. ETC light stays on longer than bulb check should.


no crank, is basic starter path failure
the lamps are useless here,
ill guess automatic trans.....
forget pump, just starter.

does it crank in neutral as instructed in the oper,guide?
yes/no
if yes, park switch
no, the jumper cable crank engine, does it crank now.?
yes, battery was dead, or lugs corroded green
no? then clean lugs, rpeat
no? the starter bad or key line bad
next
HOT WIRE THE STARTER At solenoid(keys in pocket)
no crank with good battery,starter is bad. (or possible cables)
yes, crank well now you know your starters good in 5min.work
this means the KEY line is dead.
id scan the pcm now or first,is better.
some cars have starter relay
what happens is the PRNDL switch in the trans
in P or N , energizes said relay allowing the key line 12v reach said starter small lug.
see?
only $10 voltmeter i see the cause fast.
easy .
the key in must be 11v or more. cranking.
if 0 or real low bad line, 8v the solenoid chatters.so....
ending my secrets now..

no tools? nor meter?

charge your battery?> have some one charge it and test it.?
jumper cable crank it(call AAA TOW?)
USE a known good battery from other car yet.
all fail check key line
hit starter on side with hammer? (sorry a tool)


btw dead batteries fail all tests. so charge it first then test it or be out $130 for nuttn.
(makes car stores rich, not now..)

Where is fusiable link in a 2001 jeep grand cherokee


4.0L or 4.7L engine> the park switches are different.

you pulled a starter with out removing battery neg lug?
is that it?
your post makes it hard to see what the story is.
you replaced starter because car would not CRANK
or
you replaced starter, and shorted out the big cable and boom
and now all things are dead. what?
ill assume car would not crank one day
and you gue$$ a bunch of parts and guessed wrong,
guessing is very expensive.
------------------------------Testing wins--------------------------------------
so no crank 101, posted 100 times. ILL ASSUME it's a A/T tranny.
(im ignoring new parts, i never assume anything works i test it)

  1. check all fuses in all boxes. using a voltmeter. 12vdc both sides key on and battery cables lugs area all clean and tight x4 ends.
  2. you check battery volts its 12.6vdc rested, good.
  3. you crank, and the solenoid just clicks. or only the starter relay only clicks, (more later on that)
  4. you see that battery voltage never drops below 11v and crank time. (11v is typ, tad less if in Alaska, or bad battery or not charged fully)
  5. You then jumper cable crank car, off a running donor car ,just like Mr. AAA tow does.... same to a fault. (google how) (hinting your battery is good, I have a battery load tester so can check)
  6. if this cranks ok, the battery is bad. (happens or is discharged)
  7. car still will not jumper crank.
  8. we next hot wire the starter small wire to big lug. keys in pocket. Called hot wiring a starter solenoid.
  9. engine does not crank, starter bad. or may be battery cables.
  10. engine does crank nice , my keys are in pocket ,see?
  11. ok starter is good, at test 10. so we now know its ok. easy huh>
  12. now we know the key line is bad. 1 wire. end to end. easy.
  13. you try to start in neutral, omg it starts. bad PRNDL switch.
  14. or its bad starter relay.


now we show how it cranks. good starter and battery (& cables)
keyon,
put shifter in to park then neutral and crank.? fails both?

the starter relay must close cranked, if not, bad park switch or bad relay
in this moment (cranking) there must be 12vdc across the 2 relay coil pins.
pin 85 and 86 with volt meter, if 0v, the PRNDL switch is bad.
or on 4.7L the TRS switch.
if the relay closes, then jb fuse f31 is ok and pdc f8 must be good.
and you then turn key to crank. and relay pin 87 goes to 11v to 12v.
this then is a single wire that goes directly to the starter solenoid
tiny wire , it goes to 12v and starter cranks, 11v what you see here
unless in alaska , less. (10v ?)

see red arrow what is voltage there cranking?
we can go fast , if you just do that.

25513501-qtmfudt4eg5vdkejwfy5ompz-5-0.jpg the transmission switch grounds the lower coil,here.
if not the starter will be dead forever.
both fuses must be good, or same.
12vdc arrives at top left fuse, and is hot only cranking.
if the right fuse, glows above the relay can not send power to the starter solenoid.

I have A 91 EF SI....with a 93 b18b1 starter ticks but will not start....replaced starter and had it rechecked and its fine....battery has good charge.....and there is power going to starter...pgm-fi main...


It sounds like your battery needs to be replaced. When you battery has a dead cell, or is weak, the starter solenoid may click, but the starter will not turn over. Since you replaced the starter, and you have power going to the starter, I am sure you have a bad battery.

Car won't start not the battery


Test the neutral safety switch but doing the following steps.

1)foot on brake
2)turn key to on position
3)shift lever to neutral (N)
4)start the engine
5)shift the lever to Park (P)

If the engine can start at N and not at park then it's the neutral safety switch.

Just replaced the battery on 1995 honda prelude. Alternator checked out fine. 2 weeks later came out of work and the car would not start. Battery would not turn over. Could this be fuel pump relay? ...


The fuel pump relay has nothing to do with your engine cranking/turning over. If your battery is dead, you may have gotten a bad battery, it happens. It also depends on what type of battery you got. Walmart, Deka, and advance auto batteries have some problems. IF your battery checks good, it is most likely your starter, or wiring to starter. If your battery is dead, but recharges good, you have a drain issue, you left something on, or the alternator is not putting out enough amps. You may be getting proper voltage, but no amps.

2001 chrysler sebring lx having starting problems


Could be several things.
1. Ba battery - replace (it's located under the left fender - you have to remove the left wheel and the plastic fender insert.
2. Could be a wornout starter solenoid. Replace the starter. The starter is difficult to remove. You have to remove the front catalytic converter - two nuts on the the front exhast pipe flange, 1 bolt from under the car (connects converter to exhast manifold) and 3 nuts from the top. Converter can be difficult to get out; you'll have to push the collant hose up and out of the way. You should test the starter before removing it (you'll have to remove the converter to get to it). Connect a jumper from the battery to the solenoid. If starter turns engine freely, it's not the starter.
3. Could be a short causing the battery to go dead. This can be very difficulot to find. If there are other problems with an electrical devices (radio, ABS, CD player, etc) it's likely that something is shorting.
