SOURCE: 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?

begin by removing and cleaning all battery cable ends and connections. Bendix drive in starter may be hung up but it's driven by the solenoid.

SOURCE: motor will not crank. Battery good.

It could also be the VATS system faulty. The Theft Deterrent Module (TDM) also controls the starter relay, so if the TDM is faulty it could definitely be that your car is not cranking.

My 92 lincoln town car will not start i have replaced the starter, the neutral safety switch and the battery but when i turn key nothing happens but can jump starter and will crank

Yes there is a starter relay in the wiring diagram.
The yellow and lite blue wire goes from the starter solenoid to the relay. There is a yellow wire from the relay to a 30amp fuse. The key switch powers thru the neutral safety switch and then powers the relay on.

Have a 98 ford explorer and it won't start tryed to jump it nothen. Put a starter in and still won't click ove it sounds like it dead but if I play with the power distreber box I'm dash lights...

it could very well be the starter solinoid mounted on fender under hood. most fords are setup this way. to test it -- You could use jumper cable to jump the two large studs on the solenoid together, which should make the starter crank the engine, assuming the engine can rotate freely. If jumping the solenoid works, then the solinoid is probably bad. have a good day !!

Fist of all the ignition switch tuns with out key its been laid up seveveral years.had to jump solinoid to get engine to run .so i replaed solinoid nowwhen you turn the key nothing happens youneed to jump...

As the car has been laid up many years, it needs a thorough servicing. Besides a solenoid in the starter motor, there is a bendex as well. Its role is to push the starter pinion forwards to enable it to engage the flywheel when you turn the key. And when the key is turned backwards then this pinion is pulled backwards. This goes bad sometimes as most of the things do. So it should be repaired. Then the starter motor will start functioning as it should.

Turn the key on and the lights radio fuel pump everything comes on but it will not crank, replaced neutral switch, checked ignition switch, hot wire to relay center under hood, if you jump out the starter...

Sounds like the starter solinoid especialy if the starter works when you jump it. I dont know if you can buy just a solinoid for that particular car, but its a cheap place to start if you can. If not you should be able to get a whole remaned starter for around a hundred bucks. Hope this helps.

The acr would not start. Battery works. I banged

If you banged on the starter motor and it started then you have a stickie bendix drive and solinoid sticking
But if you have to also jump start it as well then do this.....When it wont start before doing anything else turn on the lights and hit the starter and if the lights go dim or go out the battery is no good or you have a short in the eletc take battery lead off for 2 days and if starts you have a SHORTin the eletrics

Won't start

I would start by checking all the fuses, whether they are related or not. Also try swapping around relays, they are usually the same size/style. Also can you hear anything, the click from the starter, or anything else when you try to start. If you don't hear anything and feel like getting under the car you could bypass the starting system and manual jump the starter. Put car in park, take a piece of electrical wire, get to where you have access to the starter wires and use the wire to jump from the smaller wire to the big cable. They will be on two different terminals on the starter. By careful not to be around and pulleys/belts as the engine may crank. Leave the key off and the engine should crank. if it dosen't you have a problem with the starter. If it does crank you have a problem in the control circuit ie key switch, fuses, relays, etc.

Starter wont engage

The problem is either the starter solinoid (located on fender near battery) or you are not getting power to the "s" terminal on the starter solinoid from the ignition switch. If you follow the positive battery cable from the battery you'll follow it to the solinoid. Remove the small wire from the terminal marked "s" on the solinoid and using a screwdriver jump from "s" terminal (not the wire) to where positive battery cable connects to solinoid. (with battery connected). If starter doesn't do anything the solinoid is bad. If starter cranks then you are not getting voltage from ignition switch through "s" terminal wire.

This is your Starter and Starter Solinoid. Repace the Starter (Comes with Solinoid) and you will be good to go.

1999 mitsubishi eclips, I try to start and it doesn't start, it won't crank. And I jump start the starter and the starter seam to be ok, battery ok, starter relay ok.

it could be a crank sensor, does it turn over? if it does, check for spark and fuel pressure, if it doesnt crank at all it could be an ignition switch
