CAMPAIGN NUMBER 02008B FIXES A PROBLEM WITH THE STARTING SYSTEM BY ADDING A RELAY TO THE PURPLE WIRE ON THE STARTER. IF THE CAMPAIGN WAS DONE THE RELAY CAN GO BAD AND THE GROUND CAN GET CORRODED. THE RELAY IS ON THE RADIATOR SUPPORT ON THE DRIVERS SIDE.

YOUR IGNITION SWITCH CAN ALSO BE BAD. THAT WAS THE REASON FOR THE RELAY IN THE FIRST PLACE. THE SWITCH CONTACTS GET BURNED.

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.

Wont start the starter is working yet it won crank what can I do


Did you check power an grounds using voltage drop testing , did you check battery voltage an computer control at the starter motor relay in the under hood fuse / relay box ? Instead of guessing you need to learn how to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an test ! The powertrain control module controls the starter motor operation ! Starter Voltage Drop VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis ,If you pull the relay an jump pin's 30 & 87 the starter should crank ,test the circuit starter motor side ! Pins 85 & 86 are the control side ., Pin 85 or 86 forget which one has battery voltage with the key on . The one with out voltage is control from the engine computer ! Also if the anti theft system is active it wont start !

Car wont start


what kind of vehicle?
My own f150 wouldn't crank and it turned out to be the starter relay. $10.00 and 20 minutes to change. Does it go click when you turn the key? do the lights work?

1998 chevy asto van wont crank or turn over


Turn the headlights on and watch them while the key is turned to start. If the lights go out, one of your cables or connections at battery or starter is not good. If lights dim a lot but stay on, possibly a bad starter, it needs testing. If lights aren't affected by cranking position, turn lights off, pull the small wire off the starter solenoid, hook up a test light to ground and to the solenoid wire. Light should come on when key is held in crank. If it does, likely a bad starter solenoid. If no light, then the start circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is not working. Check for power out of ignition switch on the start wire with key in crank, to begin with. If powered, switch is good, need to check if neutral safety switch is good, and then check or swap in a new starter relay.
Post back with any results.
Good luck.

Does the starter for 98 buick regal custom have a in line fuse and how do i locate it my car wont start it wont even turn over the battery has a full charge and i had the starter tested it passed so the...


There is no inline fuse but there are a couple of things you can check.

One check for power on the large cable at the starter. There should be 12 volts all the time.

Check for power on the small purple wire at the starter. There should be power any time the key is in the crank position.

Let me know which is missing and I'll be happy to help you further figure it out.

98 honda accord wont start took starter to shop which passed the test. Need to know what other problem it could be...key turns all the way lights, radio all that comes on but wont start?


check your starter relay. if the starter passed the test at the shop check to see if you are getting signal to your solenoid on the starter it shoul be the little post when you turn the key to the crank position, check to see if you have power at the big post which comes from your battery, check your grounds. check your fuses see if you have a crank fuse or an ignition fuse.
