    There are 3 wires. 2 on the small terminal and 1 on the larger terminal. With 2 on the large terminal the starter won't engage. Thanks for your help.

My 2005 Suzuki Aerio won't start. I know that there is power as the lights, radio, ect are working when the ignition is turn on, but the car will not turn over. Side note, the heater blows even though it...


IS tthis a DIY question? or just want guessing? ill pretend DIY/.
no, the car will not crank.
cranking uses 100 amps of current,
the HL , maybe 10amps, 10x less.
turn over means nothing, cranking matters
both the starter and engine spin, "turns over": (1 can and other might not)
starting is a whole other matter, as is sustained start, called running.
crank?> start, started, running, 1,2,3,4.

the heater blower runs, key on, but the heater switch is off.
seem like the controller is tad upset, (lets fix engine first) and fix blower later. (my bet is it wakes up when battery is happy)

my guess is car has and automatic transmission, right>?
and as such to crank it must do so in, park and in Neutral.
does the engine crank in NEUTRAL. (hold foot brake, keyon, shift th N. ) crank now?
1: check fuses yet?
2: check rested battery voltage yet (meter) 12.6vdc.?
if less battery is bad, or only discharged. if yes, charge it?
no charger use jumper cables to crank car. got cables?
call AAA tow they jump start it? no AAA?
barrow a charged battery and try that, ok battery is charged and it will not crank,,, ,good progress now.
3: i next hot wire the starter solenoid. (some cars this is very hard)
check for about 11vdc at starter key line cranking.
0v means its dead.
hot wire that small starter wire, there, cranks now , key off
the starter is good.
now check voltage at the left side of P/N switch, Park/neutral.
12vdc id good, cranking, 11 is too.
if you cant get at least 11v out of switch 20. that means
the P/N switch is bad, (11 or more input)
(battery is good, solved that in test 2)
so bad transmission park neutral switch called the KEY line.

Replaced the starter,hook the battery up starter turns without the key on,why nis this?


starter switch faulty, not to be confused with key switch. or the relay wired up wrong. The two large wires on the relay should not be on the same connection, pay no attention to the red arrows, but the two large wires are seperate. Again, starter switch my first thought.

Blower motor stays on when car is off 1999 mercury mystique


The Mercury Mystique had somewhat of a bad reputation for wiring problems. I guess my question to you is have you had to have the wiring worked on?? If so, I'd guess that it would be pretty possible for a wire to be hooked up wrong at the ignition switch if somebody has been fooling with that. Just a thought... Also, I'm wondering if the fan continues to run until your battery goes dead?? Now, I'm hoping you don't have the blower motor (for the heater and air conditioner) confused with the electric engine cooling fan. It is normal for the engine fan to run for a while after you shut your engine off. But, I'm probably telling you things you already know along that line.

I have a 2004 Dodge Neon and I just replaced the battery and for some reason sometimes when I'm running a lot of errands when I turn it off it won't turn on again. It won't even make any noises...


Something is wrong in your start circuit. From battery to ignition switch, and ending at the starter solenoid. You would have to start checking for where power is lost between the switch and the starter. If you have power to the starter solenoid on the small wire at the starter (can check with a test light while someone holds the key in start), then the starter would need testing.

My 2000 Dodge Caravan will not start


Sounds similar to my old 94 dodge ram. Battery died at least I thought, replaced it and truck would not turn over. After about three hours of playing around I start checking all my wires and connections any loose wires I tighten or replaced if they looked worn or bad. And I found a ground wire was not connected to frame it came loose. Tightened it and hooked battery up and it started.

My boyfriend hooked a toggle switch up to my fan in my 97 dodge neon, he got the fan to work, but now my car won't start! We thought it just drained the battery, so we tried to jump it, but that


Where did he get the power from to run the fan,if he just used a hot wire from inside the car it most likely blew the fuse for ignition as the engine fan gets its power from a relay in the power distribution box under the hood as far as the fan goes if it ran with the wire then the engine coolant temp sensor is probably bad

I just changed my solinoid on my starter for a 1995 ford e150.when i hook up battery cable it immediatly starts running the starter. is it hooked up wrong or would a switch be bad


it seems like you could have the 12v power wire from the battery connected to the wrong terminal on the solenoid. or there could be a short to power in the switched power wire going to the solenoid. test the wiring, the smaller gauge wiring should have no 12v positive signal with the key not turned to the start position.

Need to replace neutral safety switch in a 1997


The switch is on the front of the trans and the shifter arm hooked to the cable is going thought it. Remove the arm adnd the the blots holding the switch on then the electrical connector. Rember the security system won'[t let the car start if the wrong key is used.
