Loose or corroded earth connection, faulty starter motor, flat battery.

SOURCE: starter won't turn over,I shorted

That wire may be coming from a relay so you may need a service manual to find which one it is.
BTW, to save frying all of your screwdrivers, applying 12 volts for a moment to the terminal with the smaller gauge wire will cause the solenoid to operate as it was designed. Shorting across the main solenoid terminals lets ~ 100-200 amps flow through your screwdriver which isn't even a very good conductor.
Even a light clip lead to the coil terminal of the solenoid could handle the lower current that flows there.
For purposes of doing several different engine tasks, I made up a momentary pushbutton switch contraption housed in a plastic film canister, put 6' wires and heavy clips on it so I could 'jiggle' an engine into the next cycle.

SOURCE: renault espace starting problems

I have a 2000 Espace and for years it has suffered from a non-start problem. It can be fine for ages and then, suddenly, there's nothing when you turn the ignition, not even a click. All instruments light up. It's not the battery. Does this sound familiar?

In my case, time and time again it has been what they call the 'firewire' connection on to the starter - the connection becomes corroded over time and fails to pass sufficient voltage.

If the terminal becomes too badly burned, where the voltage has arced because of a poor connection, apparently the only solution is to fit a new starter motor. But so far, in my case, it's just needed a clean of the connector and terminal.

By the way, holding the ignition key in the ON position for some time (30 seconds or more) can sometimes cause it to fire up.

There should not be any voltage to the control wire on the starter except with the key in the "Start" position and the transmission shifter in "Park" or "Neutral". By "control wire" I mean the small wire attached to the small terminal on the starter solenoid.

If the large wire connected to the large connector on the starter solenoid is what you are calling the "control wire", then the voltage readings you gave indicate a poor connection of the battey cable.

Removing either battery cable, thereby taking the battery out of the circuit, with the engine running can cause the alternator to charge full tilt and destroy sensitive micro volt (computer controlled) components; and I've seen wiring harnesses go up in flame from it. You may have a module problem.

Starter clicks but wont roll the engine over


Most likely your battery is dead, the clicking usually indicates that. The battery may have the required voltage however, it may not have enough amps. Try giving it a jump start.

There are several things you need to check. Start by checking the alignment between the pinion gear of the starter and the flywheel. If that is loose or binding the starter will do this. Next, check teh starter relay to make sure it isn't faulting out. finally, if you have an Alarm installed, cut the power wire to the alarm or pull the fuse to make sure it isn't the Anti-Theft circuit malfunctioning and stopping it from starting.

true about what do you mean
however if the fault codes read as CKP then check the wiring and /or replace the sensor
sensors have nothing to do with starter motors
starter motors just crank the engine over and if that is not happening, check battery condition , terminals , starter relay, starter motor
But they will prevent the engine from starting and running

My ford taurus just wont start


check that the small [exciter wire] is not loose or disconnected at the starter motor solenoide !
It could also be a bad starter relay!
try bridging the exciter terminal to the posative [big cable ] on the starter solenoide with a screwdriver or a piece of heavy guage wire to see if the starter activates!
if it works would it could be a faulty relay
