SOURCE: 1999 ford taurus starter will not engage

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge, you assumption is correct on most designs. That wire should go to the ignition switch and will be hot when key is in START. However, same wire often would be connected first to a relay that is interlocked with some conditions/status other then key to START. They would be:

  • automatic transmission should be in neutral/park with light indicated;
  • alarm/security/immobilizer is inactive/OFF.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

SOURCE: STARTER WONT ENGAGE ONLY CLICKS UNDER HOOD STATER

If the clicking sound is coming from the engine bay, from the relay, you may want to have the starter itself checked out. You need to check if the ground cable from the engine to the chassis is secured. If that is OK, you may want to have the starter motor checked.

SOURCE: 1984 ford f-150 4x4 ignition wiring diagram i need...

when looking at it from the front the most left is from the battery, now going right from there the little pin is from ignition, basically to flip this giant switch on. next little pin goes to your fuel shut off relay, it will turn on that relay to send power to your pump while cranking, next is the large out. far right. that goes to your starter.

Starter clicks but will not turn engine over on 2004 Dodge Durango. New starter and battery.


Hi Mark
Sounds like you are doing all the right things.
We used to Load Test a Starter Motor by putting it in a Large Vice and connecting a known good battery with solid fat jumper leads.
When the solenoid throws the cog forward to engage we would use a 2 by 4 block of wood levered against the cog to try and stop the starter from spinning. The wood burns up under load but it quickly proves the Starter is functioning under load. Without using the engine.
Also you could try removing the spark plugs on the engine to allow the compression to escape. Make sure NO sparks around to ignite any fuel vapor.
The engine should spin over easily like this and you can hear & see if anything is binding up.
Hope this Helps!
Good luck!

Wire 253 holden boat motor starter alternator coil basic diagram


batter positive to one big terminal of the starter solenoid--large wire as in a car ( the other big terminal will have a wire from it going into the starter)
a wire from the start point of the ignition switch to the small terminal of the start solenoid .( This to energize the starter solenoid to start the engine.) a large wire ( 30 amp capacity ) from the positive terminal of the battery going to the BAT terminal of the alternator the plug in the back of the alternator will go to the battery light or ammeter.. wires from the start and run positions of the ignition switch to the coil. One to provide power when the starter is engaged and the other from the run position to provide power to keep the engine running
basic but it will work

Will not turn over! Starter won't engage!!


When you turn the key to on, do the dash and warning lights come on? This would verify power to the ignition switch.

It's like this: you have a positive battery cable with a lot of juice connected to the starter, but not to the starter motor. It is only connected to the starter motor when the start wire out of the ignition switch energizes the starter solenoid, mounted on top of the starter.

So you check the small wire to the starter for power with the key held in start. If it has power then, the starter or the solenoid is probably bad- as long as the battery is charged and the battery connections and starter connection is good.
If you have no power on the small wire in start, trace the start wire back to the ignition switch. You may need a wiring diagram- there is often a start relay, a park/neutral safety switch with automatics or a clutch safety switch with a manual transm., and sometimes a "crank" fuse. All or some may be in the path of the start wire from ignition switch to the starter solenoid. You would need a voltmeter or test light to check this circuit. If you want more help, post back with make, model, year, and engine, and I could look at a wiring diagram for your start circuit, or I could post a link for you to see the diagram.

Ignition relay clicks but starter won't engage


Where is this relay? A wiring diagram doesn't show any relay at all in the starting circuit. Just this: a yellow start wire out of ignition switch goes to the neutral safety switch (if manual, a clutch start switch on the clutch pedal: if automatic a transmission range switch); From the safety switch a purple wire to the starter solenoid on the starter motor. Only other place to check is a "crank" fuse in the instrument panel fuse block- a 10 amp fuse in position 8 of the block.
Is the click you hear possibly from the starter solenoid? If it is, that means key switch part of circuit to the solenoid is good. Either starter motor is bad, or battery connections to starter and to battery ground may be bad, check them first.

Car won't srart,have lights won't turn over


Just because you have lights it doesnt mean the battery is strong enough to turn it over...first check battery with voltmeter....if it doesnt say 12.02 volts at least you need a battery....12.06 is perfect.
If it is good check fuses...most cars have a start fuse that can blow.and also a start relay..If they are all good and your dash instruments lights come on when you turn ignition on... the ignition should be good...It is rare for the ignition to be bad if lights on instrument panel come on when ignition is turned on but be sure to keep headlights off ! ....If all this seems to be good you need a starter.sometimes the S wire that connects to the starter solenoid...(smallest wire) will come loose and cause problem that seems like bad starter but will be a loose wire instead.....make sure all wires are tight before you buy a starter....ALSO YOU COULD HAVE MORE THAN ONE PROBLEM
BE SURE TO CHECK EVERYTHING EVEN IF YOU FIND ONE BAD AT THE BEGINING OF YOUR TROUBLESHOOT PROCEDURE...CHECK EVERYTHING I MENTIONED.

Why not eBay? you may be able to find a "lightly" used harness from an appropriate dodge or Chrysler product that uses your engines?
Try for a Repair manual or electrical repair segment for an appropriate Chrysler product with your engine.
