Either the solenoid or relay will need to be replaced. Try smacking on solenoid while having someone start it to see if it frees up. There is a piston inside the solenoid that you can replace for $4.
Double check all battery cables to make sure they are metal to metal contact.

Changing out the ignition switch wiring harness in the steering column. Everything checks out OK including the starter. I hope this solves the problem


Most everyone says it is the starter switch harness.???? How do they know ? Did they test the electrical circuits ? That's how we find electrical problem's on automobiles ! Buy a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an look at a wiring diagram an test the starter circuit ! Everything checks out OK including the starter> Did you test it . Do you know how this starter circuit works ?
How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

Do you know what a starter relay is ? Is the anti-theft system light lite on the insturment cluster ? When you turn the key to the start position a voltage signal goes to the PCM - engine computer ,not to the starter > The PCM will energize the starter relay if no anti-theft system problems , and if it see's a voltage input from the transmission range sensor switch , signaling the vehicle is in park or neutral. Before listening to someone who has no clue , your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop . The starter is computer controlled .Circuit Description
Moving the ignition switch to the START position sends a 12 V signal to the PCM Ignition Crank Sense. The PCM verifies that the transmission is in the PARK or NEUTRAL position. The PCM then grounds the control circuit of the START relay. When the START relay is energized it allows battery positive voltage to the starter solenoid S terminal.

Ignition problems got power but won't start lights and everything comes on but no power to starter


What make , model and year vehicle ? Starter relay problem , PCM/ECM doesn't energize the starter relay . Anti-theft system problem won't let starter engage etc.... Do you have a security light lit on the instrument cluster ? A flashing red light on top of instrument panel ?

Silverado will not start

Click on the link.
I tried to get everything on one page, makes it a little small to read. Check for voltage and ground at the starter motor. Any testing make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. Two voltage circuits, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other voltage circuit goes hot with key in the crank position and the starter relay energized, goes to starter S terminal. The neutral or clutch switch is also involved in that circuit. Use a test light to check for voltage. The starter motor is grounded through engine block. Make sure battery has a full charge. When you check fuses, also, use a test light and check voltage on fuse circuit, applicable fuses.

1999 GMC Sonoma 2.2L will not start.


What is wrong????????? That would be a guess on anyones part here ! Testing the electrical circuits involved would be the proper way to diagnose this no start problem ! Using a volt meter an wiring diagram to check voltage at different point's in the starter circuit . voltage drop testing ! Plus knowing how the starter system works !
Starter Circuit Operation
Voltage is applied at all times to the ignition switch from the IGN A fuse through CKT 42 (RED). When the ignition switch is turned to the START position, voltage is applied to the CRANK fuse through CKT 5 (YEL). From the CRANK fuse , voltage is either applied to the clutch pedal position switch (M/T) or the park/neutral position switch (A/T) through CKT 806 (PPL). When either the clutch is disengaged (M/T) or the transmission is in park or neutral (A/T), voltage is applied to the coil of the starter relay through CKT 1035 (PPL/WHT). Since the starter relay is permanently grounded at ground G102 through CKT 150 (BLK), the starter relay energizes.
Voltage is applied at all times to the starter relay contacts from IGN A fuse through CKT 42 (RED). When the starter relay energizes, the starter relay contacts close, and voltage is applied to the starter motor solenoid. Since the starter motor solenoid is permanently case grounded, the starter motor solenoid will energize two coils. The pull-in winding coil energizes in order to pull the starter motor solenoid contacts closed. When the contacts close, a plunger on the contacts causes the pull-in winding coil circuit to open. The hold-in winding coil then holds the starter motor solenoid contacts closed. Voltage is then applied to the starter motor from the battery through CKT 1 (RED) and the closed contacts of the starter motor solenoid. Since the starter motor is also permanently case grounded, the starter motor will run until the ignition switch is moved out of the START position. When this happens, a spring in the starter motor solenoid moves the starter motor solenoid contacts and the plunger back to the rest position.

My Volvo s60 won't start replaced battery and starter and still won't start battery test fine what can I do I have good power throught out

Similar problem to above :89 caprice classic won't start, but the battery is brand new (2 days old) I get a battery light in the dash. I replaced the side screw battery attachment posts with new ones when...


Do you have a multi meter.
You should have three post on your starter.
Two large and one small.
The small one is the energizer wire. That one appears to be working if your getting a click sound At the starter solenoid.
Then you will have a larger cable coming from the battery to one of the large post.
That post should have 12v at it.
The other large post will have the braided wire that goes into the starter motor.
That post will have 12v at it when you turn the key and energize the solenoid.
If you get 12v there and the starter don't work replace the starter.
The click sound you hear is the solenoid being energized and closing the circuit so it is working. most likely starter is bad.
Hope this helps Give feedback and good luck. FixYa

Replaced starter and ignition switch and at times the car will not start unless i jump starter and when it acts up it doesnt click and does nothing but everything is energized. also after jumping starter...


Please check the condition of your battery and charging system. Hydro the battery ... it should read at least 1200. Your alternator should be putting out at least 13 volts.

Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

Won't start worked this morning now won't start... lights and everything work....tried to jump start nothing...


When you turn the engine over, do the lights dim significantly? Does the engine turn over or do you just get a clicking? Despite the lights working this could still be a bad battery. Starting a car draws a lot of current and if the battery is bad then this situation can arise. Jumping might also not work in this case. If the engine turns over then its something else. Check the coil/plugs for a spark and check for fuel.
