Fj60 wont start or be jumped. starter seems totally dead. could it be a fuse or solenoid?

Possible, but not likely. Hold the key in start position and check if you have power to the small wire going to the starter solenoid (on the starter motor). If this wire has voltage when holding key in start, then you know the starter has to come off for testing. Either a bad starter motor or bad solenoid.
If no power on the small wire, then you will have to diagnose the starting circuit. Something wrong between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid.

Hi i have a 1984 35 hp evinrude electric start E35RLCRR that wont start or turn over

If you are sure that all connections are clean and bright, including the battery to the ground and battery cable to the solenoid, jumper from the battery (+) to the solenoid (+). If the solenoid clicks, but motor doesn't turn over, your solenoid is bad. Try jumpering momentarily from the battery (+) to the starter (+) and that should cause the starter to rotate. If that makes your starter rotate, your solenoid is still bad. Be sure that your starter has a good ground connection

When I turn the key nothing happens. The starter doesn't even try to draw power from the battery. However, if I by-pass the starter relay it will turn over the motor but will not provide spark or...

Hi! It sounds like a bad solenoid, or that you're not getting the 12 volts to the solenoid to engage the heavy amperage needed to turn thr starter motor.
When you say you bypass it,do you mean you are just crossing the large post of the solenoid with the battery cable connection at the starter?
When you turn the key,you should get 12 volts at least at the smaller post on the solenoid.If you have 12 volts there when the key is all the way to `start 'position,then the starter probably ought to be replaced.
This car being a 2000 is 13 yrs.old.Won't hurt to put a new starter on it.

Isx engine wont start,engine turns over when i jump at starter,doesnt work with key

Hello, I usually service Ford family Brands, but you seem to have a simple problem. When you jump directly to the starter you are bypassing the starter Solenoid. I am not familiar with your Brand, but 2 things you need to check for are the small wire coming from the Ignition key and the starter Solenoid.

If you have a separate Solenoid apart from the starter, then remove the small wire and add the jumpwire to the bare terminal on the Solenoid. If the Solenoid is good the Solenoid will connect the power through the Solenoid and onto the starter motor. The starter should spin. If the Solenoid does not do anything, then replace the Solenoid.

If you find that the Solenoid works from exchanging the jumpwire and the small wire, then you are not getting power through the small wire. There are safety Interlocks which are in the clutch(stickshift) or gearlevers(auto) and Brake pedal. Like Ducks in a row, all of these switches must be adjusted to line up to give you power under the hood when you turn the key.

You can have a simple bad Ignition key if the small wire to the Solenoid is powerless. But you would need to check from the Ignition key, through the Interlocks, then finally to the Solenoid small wire.

Hopefully I have given you information part of which you do not need if the Solenoid tested out bad. Just replace the bad Solenoid and be on your way.

Engine wont start from key switch

Check if the starter solenoid is faulty, check the power to the solenoid and if there is no trigger to the unit then the key switch contact can be checked. You can cross a +12 to the solenoid, if it wont work then the unit is faulty. If the solenoid works but does not power the starter motor then the mtor brush or commutator can be worn out. You will then need to remove the starter and overhaul.

I have a 1995 honda accord and it just wont start , When i turn the key over to start it just wont turn over , i change the fuel pump and the starter is good .. it sounds like its trying to start but...

The contacts in the starter motor solenoid are worn, the clicking that you can hear is the solenoid being pulled in, but not making contact to allow the main battery voltage/current from getting to the starter motor. Their are 2 things you can do to get you out of trouble.

Rock the car back and forward whilst in gear, stop and try again.

Tap the side of the starter motor cover with a piece of wood or soft hammer. This will wiggle the contacts and allow for starting.

These may get the car up and running, but ultimately the contacts will have to be replace.

If you can find the starter motor, the solenoid is the small round or triangle box on top or to the side f the starter motor, usually with two small wires going to it.

Car wont start

Does the battery have enough capacity to turn over the engine though? Even flat car batteries will still power the radio. The best way would be to jump start the car uing a set of jumper leads. If it starts you know it is the battery that needs replacing.

If it still wont turn over then it is most likely the solenoid in your starter motor. You can often tap the starter motor with a hammer and free the solenoid as a temporary fix. The starter motor is loacted at the back of the engine on the bell housing if rear wheel drive, or around the tranmission if a front wheel drive.
