Current is measured when you have a "flow" of electricity. Do you mean voltage? The ignition sends a signal to the starter relay to close when you try to start the car and stops when the car is running and you turn the key back. So there won't be a constant voltage on the starter all the time, or the starter would always be running.

Will not crank over the wire for the fuse box down to the solenoid does not have any power when I turn the key


Check the fuse/relay box, usually under the hood. You will need a diagram to find the relay. The relay is only a switch that takes small current from the ignition switch and relays larger current to the starter. Its done this way so that the ignition switch does not have to have large wires and contacts. Should be easy fix.

Possibly your starter relay is bad. It receives the start signal when you turn the ignition switch to crank and is supposed to relay current to the starter. Test or replace the relay.

2002 WRX won't start


Could be lack of current from the battery, corrosion on the terminals, bad ignition switch, bad neutral safety or clutch safety switch, bad solenoid, bad starter brushes, bad starter field, bad engine ground strap, or siezed engine.

For a quick check, turn the headlights on as you try to crank.

If they do not dim, then current never getting to starter field.
If no click as well, then not getting to starter solenoid.

If they dim but come back when you stop, then battery good and either starter or engine is bad.

If they dim and don't come back, then battery is bad.

I would suspect the starter solenoid has failed.

A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.

The starter solenoid receives a large electric current from the car battery and a small electric current from the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is turned on, a small electric current is sent to the starter solenoid. This causes the starter solenoid to close a pair of heavy contacts, thus relaying a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. The starter motor is an electric motor that initiates piston motion in a car's internal combustion engine before it can power itself.

It sounds like your starter solenoid (relay) is failing. The clicking is a classic symptom. It's time to have it replaced.

Its not in the wire that is coming from the battery to the starter. Its in your low current wire that comes from the ignition switch to the starter. That is the wire that probably has too much resistance. Replace that wire and your problem should be over.

My f-150 it will not turn over battery is good but not geting voltaeg to starter help


Use a test light and check at the starter solenoid and see if the ignition start wire gets hot when the key is turned to start. If it does check to see if current then goes thru the solenoid to the starter. If it does check to see if current gets to the starter, if it gets to the starter the starter is bad. If no current to the starter or out of solenoid the solenoid is bad. If current does not get to the solenoid when switch is turned, check and see if the current goes thru the neutral safety switch (Clutch switch if not automatic). If the current doesn't go thru the switch replace the switch. If you are not getting current to the switch in the first place check the ignition switch. If the current doesn't come from the ignition switch to the safety switch replace the ignition switch.

The click you are hearing is the starter solenoid. This solenoid is a relay that applies 12 volts (at high current) to the starter motor. When you turn the ignition key you apply 12 volts ( at low current) to the solenoid. If jiggling the key solves the problem all of the time I would suspect the ignition key assembly.
If jiggling the key only works some of the time I would suspect the solenoid/starter assembly. For your info the solenoid/starter comes as a complete assembly, when you buy it.

Hope this helps
