Check the conections of the wires at the starter and silonoid disconect battery first as to not short anything out by bumping the engine wich is grounded if all conections are good then the bendex in the silonoid is not engaging all the way to operate the starter or the broshes in the starter ar woren out eather way just replace the starter a new one comes with the silonoid on it and they are only about 45-65 bucks at schucks and have a 1 year warranty. i dont recomend just replacing the silonoid on the starter cause adventuly you will have to replace the starter any ways. or if you are on a budget then u can remove the silonoid from the starter and sand the bendex in the silonoid with some fine grit sand paper and use air to blow any debres out of it and reinstall silonoid and it will get u by for a short time.

Wont start nothing happens new battery


1. Make sure your battery is fully charged.
2. Check connections from battery to starter relay.
3. Make sure you have voltage going to the start side (small wire) of the relay with the key in the "start" position.
4. If you don't have voltage going to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in the start positon, then your starter switch is faulty (under dash usually mounted on top of steering column).
5. If you have voltage to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in start position, and it don't click when trying to start your car, then the starter relay is bad.
6. If your starter relay clicks, but engine don't turn over, then the starter is faulty.

If you think its the starter switch here is a picture of one uninstalled:
it should be on the upper side of steering column, and you must lower it by removing the mounting bolts that are directly under the column and lowering it down.

Car wont start, battery works and makes fast clicking noise


check all connections for tightness, sounds like one is loose somewhere between the battery and the starter or a ground is not tight..turn lights on and see if they go dead when key start is turned,,check the engine to frame ground also(usually a flat braided wire)..if lights go dead when key is turned need to charge the battery for around 4 hrs with a 6 amp charger and try again..may also be a neutral safety switch,,if not out of gear it wont start,,

My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it


Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer

Hi, what you hear is probably the starter relay which may have burned it's contacts. See if you can find it and swap it with a similar one. If the relay is good, the problem is the brown wire from the relay to the starter solenoid. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I got a 89 bronco II and it wont start. Its got a new battery. I jumped out the starter relay and the starter engaged. So thats good. Also the relay clicks when you turn the key. Also checked the...


Im not sure what you mean by I jumped out the starter relay and the starter engaged.
so i am going to assume that you jumped from the battery side to the starter side on the relay and that engaged the starter... which is fine but you say the relay clicks when u turn the key. Pull off the clip on wire from the relay and push it against the battery side connection on the relay (u may need a small screwdriver to assist the connection) the relay should cause the starter to engage. If it just clicks (my bet) then you need to replace the relay (its really called a solenoid )

1975 dodge 440 runs great but after tinkering with it it wont sta


I guess it runs if you jump it at the starter??? if so, power comes from the ign switch to the trans (neutral start switch, then to the Starter relay, then to the starter. so ck all that wiring an dsee if maybe you knocked something loose, or try to start it in neutral.

You will have to check, at the starter, for power to the SMALL wire on the starter solenoid (which is on the starter) when turning the ignition switch to start.
If there is power to this wire ( usually purple ) and power at the LARGE cable ( from the battery ) at the starter end.....you need a starter.

If you do not have power at the small wire at the solenoid with the key in start position and battery power is OK.....check the safety neutral switch.Moving the shifter around a little can sometimes allow the car to start if the neutral switch is worn.

A new battery does not always mean a fully charged battery.
Try a boost from another car before testing the starter for power.

The battery cables need to be clean and tight....and check the ground to the engine as well.

Everything else may work OK with bad connections,they don't use the power the starter needs to turn the engine over.
