SOURCE: I think my starter is bad. How do I confirm/fix?

Make sure the small wire on the solenoid has a good contact. If it does, check that there is +power to there when trying to start. If there is power and a good contact, and the starter still won't crank, try shorting the two bolt terminals on the solenoid (carefull, it will spark). If the starter cranks then it's okay, suspect solenoid.If the solenoid is okay you should hear it kicking in.

If it just clicks when you try to start it then you need to check the battery and alternator. The anti-theft system wont even crank the solenoid.

Did you got the ignition switch checked.If ignition switch itself is getting short, then it will not let the car to start.Also get the voltage at starter relay checked.If the starter relay is short, then it will not let the car to start.------------- Test the voltage at starter.If there is proper voltage to starter this will confirm, whether the relay is issue or not.----------- To test the starter try this procedure.
--------- Measure the voltage at the starter solenoid. Place the red probe on the positive battery terminal on the starter solenoid and place the negative probe on chassis ground. Have someone turn the key switch to "START" while you measure the voltage.The voltage should be approximately 12.6 volts. If the voltage is correct, there is a problem with the starter. Remove the negative battery post and check the connections on the starter.But if voltage is very low and less that 12 volts, this indicates its faulty solenoid.If you follow the wire from starter solenoid, it will reach the starter relay.That starter relay is a 12 volt part.If there is no voltage to starter or solenoid then its faulty starter relay.----------
The ignition switch is also a 12 volt part.Check the voltage at ignition switch wiring harness, there should be 12 volt.If not the switch is the issue.-------Also try wiggling the key in ignition key lock cylinder , many a times the lock cylinder gets shorted or out of line or bit loose internally.--------- Getting this possibilities checked will point towards the faulty component causing the problem.-------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Hi, what you would need to do is check the ignition switch to see if it is passing power to the start wire. If it is, then the wire from the ignition switch to the park/neutral switch is bad. You can trace the wire up to the ignition switch from the park/neutral switch. It's bolted to the side of the column and is not hard to swap out. Cost is only $10.

Battery seems fine good lights on dash when turned on but will not turn engine over it won`t even try


There are several possibilities for you to investigate. When the key is in the start position do you should hear a click from the starter solonoid? If so then you know that power is getting to the starter solonoid which eliminates a bad ignition switch. In that case you may have a bad starter. If you hear no click then you must get a test light and use it to see if power is getting to the starter solonoid. Ground the light and place the tip on the energizer wire to the solonoid. When an assistant turns the key to the start position the test light should light. This tells you power is where it should be and the solonoid is not working. If there is no power there then you must suspect a bad ignition switch or a bad wire in between the switch and the starter. Hope this helps.

I have an xjsv12 Jaguar (1988). I have eliminated it's alternator as a source of its current problem. Symptoms?.. When turning the key to start, it only "clicks" from under the hood. The battery is new....


Sounds like there may be more than one problem but we'll work on the non-start first. When you turn the key to the start position there will be two simultaneous clicks. One from under the hood will be the starter relay located on the right side rail/ drip rail of the engine bay under a black plastic cover with screws. The other click will be from the starter solonoid mounted on the starter motor. if you only hear the click from the relay then either power is not reaching the solonoid, or it is, and the solonoid is bad. if you hear both clicks ( probably you will need an assistant for this ) and no start then the starter motor itself is bad. Hope this helps.

I keep going through new starters. They work ok


sounds like a bad starter soloniod or a bad ignition switch .. most likely the solonoid if it hasnt been changed ... below is what it looks like and a couple places it can be purchased ... usually the contacts inside the solonoid wear to the point they just barely make contact .. sometimes they dont anymore ... on some solonoids you could just take it apart and rotate the contact so that unused contact area is now seen by the contactor ... .. the contacts are part of the bolts where power is connected ... a new solonoid isnt expensive so is probably the best bet ... if the contacts are worn then you will hear a click when you turn on the starter ...if yoiu dont hear a click then there could be an open coil in the solonoid or maybe a bad ignition/starter switch that operates that solonoid coil ... there are ways of junping the solonoid main contacts .. in this case the starter will run but not engage (you will get sparks) .. at least it checks the starter ... the other way is to provide power to the solonoid coil .. this should cause it to operate and engage the starter (make sure car is in park) .. if that works then suspect the ignition switch .. if it doesnt work or works once in a while then change the solonoid ...

Check voltage at trigger wire going to the solenoid. There should not be any voltage there except when the key is in start positon...if there is the ignition switch may be bad.

Starter or solinoid?


I never heard of a starter solonoid coming with shims. Did you replace the starter or starter solonoid?
What engine do you have?

Starting


Hello,
The fastest solution now would be to take a hammer and gently knock the starter (it's the part that makes the click when you turn the key). If you can't reach it with the hammer, use some bar or metal pipe, put one end of the pipe on the starter and knock the other end.
This solution may do the trick if the relay is jammed, and usually helps you to go to the nearest mechanic who should change the bad part.

Check your battery connections & battery condition, as well as connections at the starter. If those are cleaned and tightened, and battery is good, I'd start thinking about a new/rebuilt starter. $200. should cover parts & labor.

Same 1991 w/starting problem


open the door and listen for a click from under the car (starter solenoid). If you hear that click, along with the one coming from
the glove compsartment(starter relay), it's the wire between the starter solenoid and the relay...If you only hear the one click from the glove compartment( it's actually in the passengers door pillar), it's the starter relay ($15)
