Could be the solenoid on the starter. Next time it doesn't start, hit the starter with a hammer or other hard object, then try to start it. If it starts, replace the starter before it leaves you stranded

SOURCE: will not start

Your problem here is most likely going to be with the glow plug relay / timer unit -- you will need to renew that.

From memory (!) I think these are located on the bulkhead of the van or the inner wing - but when you go to the Fiat parts dept. to get your new part - just ask them to show you in the parts screen where it is located exactly.

Once you renew that , it should be sorted for you ;)

SOURCE: VW POLO 1.9CL Diesel 1997 wont start

hi from uk check the main lead from battery+positive to the starters solenoid is secure ? also there is a thin wire that also connects to solenoid on a terminal of its own this is the solenoid energizing wire that works starter when key start position is selected if all above is ok? then use a jump lead and connect one end to battery negative post then the other end of lead to a suitable earth point on engine ? then try starting? if it works/starts ? you have a bad earth connection to engine from battery negative lead check the earth lead connection at point on engine is clean/secure ? it usually is secured by bolt at point where engine and transmission connect ? hope this helps?

Trouble with starter motor struggles to start in

Check battery cables and all cables on starter for loose connections. Look for corroded cables and don't forget to inspect the ground connection. Check voltage at starter with key off and while cranking if possible. Voltage shouldn't drop below 10V if all is well. Diesel vehicles usually have a higher torque starter, maybe gear reduction. Depending on age of vehicle, could be worn out. If you're a DIY guy, remove it and take it to your auto parts store for testing.

1997 Dodge ram diesel, engine does not turn over when key is turned, just a click. Just replaced both batteries. Last time the truck was run, there were no problems.

Smack the starter a few times with a hammer. It may start. It still may not. If you were to test for 12 volts at the starter and if ok, jump the two terminals down there and it still doesn't start , then you know you have a bad starter.
Or you could have a bad ground wire from the battery to motor ground. Simple test for this is to get some jumper cables and connect to ground on the battery and connect the other end strait to the starter housing. If it still does not start then you need a starter

Because you say you hear a click I would suspect the batterys or the starter only, that is if you verified the connections and bad grounds

I have a '97 dodge ram 2500 diesel. I bought it new and currently it has 106000 miles on it. Recently it has developed a problem starting, sometimes it fires right up, but sometimes when I turn the key to...

Batteries should be changed as a group. over time they seem to "twin" off each other and wear at the same rate. You should also check your starter selonoid to be sure it is working correctly and is not worn out.

Tried starting my 1999 dodge ram 2500 diesel but wont turn over.

If your positive and negative terminals are clean, both ends... not just battery, you should hear your starter relay click each time you turn the ignition key to 'start'. If no click, check connections to relay, If still no click, relay may be the problem. Assuming your battery or batteries are charged and you only here the click of the relay and no starter action, good chance the starter solenoid is in poor condidtion, or history. An indication of this problem is the starter would work intermittently and finally quit working.
Its an easy cheap fix. First disconnect you positive cable on the battery so you don't fry yourself or anything expensive. Remove the starter. Undo usually four bolts that hold the starter case together and pull it apart. Its always a good idea to pay attention how it came apart so you put it back together the same way.
The starter solenoid is just an electrical contact switch that conducts high amperage to the starter motor during engine start. The contacts in this switch burn out over time. When you pull the starter housing apart, you will see that the solinoid contact switch is installed within the hump on the side of the starter housing. You will quickly see if the solinoid contacts are burnt or damaged. Most auto parts stores have a whole collection of contacts. I paid 3.85 Canadian for a set that didn't quite match the set in my 95 dodge cummins. 20 minutes of filing saved me the $600.00 my buddies were paying . "Rebuilt' my starter about 5 years ago... and starts every time. Hope this helps someone out.
