It sounds to me like you have a bad solenoid, If the solenoid was on the starter when you bought it I would go and get another starter. Otherwise just replace the solenoid.

The dealer replace the time chaim and i put new stater motor and new battery i have problem to start,after 3 or 4 time when i tund the key start


Probably bad ignition switch where the key is. OR the line connecting to the starter solenoid terminal (small). Or could be a bad relay between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid terminal. Could be a bad starter solenoid, Yes, several instances of bad starter solenoids.

May be ab bad starter solenoid, or corroded/loose connection at starter, or (ground). Could also be a bad ignition switch. Start from the load; the starter. Test for 12V at starter, OK. Connect short wire from starter and touch sylenoid connection..

Won't start


So it's a no crank condition? Do dash lights, gauges, and everything else work when the car won't crank over? If so, buy a cheap $5.00 testlight, and when the car won't crank, pull the small black wire off the starter solenoid. While someone holds the key in start (cranking) position and clutch pedal depressed, see if the black wire has power as it should. (Ground the testlight and just touch the wire's end terminal. If powered, the testlight will light up.) If power there, then the starter solenoid is failing. Toyota starters are very good units, but the solenoid's internal contacts get old and pitted.
If no power at the black wire, then the start circuit from ignition switch to clutch safety switch (on the clutch pedal) to starter relay to starter solenoid will have to be diagnosed. To double-check: take a single battery jumper cable and put it on the positive battery post connection. Put the other end of the jumper cable on the solenoid terminal where black wire was removed. Key can be off. Make sure car is in neutral, brake set. If starter now operates, solenoid is O.K., and it is a problem in the start circuit, -ignition switch, neutral start switch, or in the wiring.
Now find a grounding place for testlight under the dash. When car won't crank, check for power coming out of ignition switch on the black wire with white stripe. This is the start wire for the starter solenoid. Key must be in crank position. Wire shoud be powered-ignition switch is working. If no power, switch is failing. You can do the same for the clutch start switch-it's a simple switch, that when clutch is depressed switch is closed and passes power on from ignition switch to the starter relay (thus allowing power to the starter solenoid). Black wire, red stripe-this is wire from clutch switch to starter relay. When key is in crank, clutch depressed, this wire should be hot.
With me so far? Still haven't found a problem, or any loose connections? Next and last is the starter relay. It is located under dash, close to gas pedal, but under the center console, just forward and left of gear shifter. It can be tested and the wiring diagnosed there, but relays are cheap, so just swap in another and see if that helps.
If you have tried everything, and still no help, you could try a new wire from the relay to the starter solenoid. This is that black wire we started with. Older toyotas sometimes have a problem with degraded wiring not passing enough current to operate the starter

It sounds like a fault in the starter circuit. It could be a defective neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, or possible a defective ignition switch but I doubt it. Can you hear the starter solenoid??? I'm willing to bet the problem is either with starter relay, neutral safety switch, or starter solenoid.

Most likely you need a new Ignition switch. The small "tickler" wires on your solenoid are staying on. You can disconnect the small wire from the Solenoid and then put a test light on it. Turn the Ignition to Start and see if the wire stays hot when you release the key.

Another problem you could have is the Starter has such a bad intermittent short in it, that it keeps the points welded together after the key is released from the Start position. You can get a starter Draw test done at some parts stores like Autozone or Oreillys to name a few, they do it free and on the truck.

Let me know the result please,

You may have a bad ignition switch or bad starter solenoid. I would check to see if the starter solenoid is getting power on the small wire when you turn the ignition switch to the starting position.

2004 chevy silverado with new starter installed as soon as I reconnect the battery cable the starter engages without key even in igniton


It could be any of the following,

1. The field wire to the starter (the wire that is hot when you turn the ignition switch to the start position, and should be connected to the "S" on the solenoid) has the wire connector pushed over and touching against the main connection and battery cable on the solenoid, or has insulation missing somewhere on the wire and the exposed wire is touching together with an exposed wire from one of the constantly hot wires from the main battery connection on the solenoid.

2. The ignition switch is stuck in the start position (the switch itself, not the key and tumbler) however if you were not having a problem with the ignition switch before you replaced the starter then it is unlikely to be the problem.

3. The starter solenoid is defective. This does happen once in a while and you should be able to have the starter tested where you bought it from.

THE STARTER WILL NOT TURN OFF


Sounds like you have a bad starter solenoid. Replace JUST the solenoid...save money....that'll fix your problem.....unless you just want to replace the whole starter assembly!

Engaging the Starter


Check to make sure that when you turn on ignition switch the solenoid is receiving power to engage the pinion gear and feed power to the starter motor. It is new so I suspect it is not receiving juice. U may have some bad connection causing the intermittent issue. PIA.
