Question about 1999 Land Rover Discovery

1 Answer

I think my starter is bad. How do I confirm/fix?

I think my starter is bad. Electrics work, but won't turn over. Not even a clicking sound. Pulled the battery, tested 100%. So I think the starter or starter solenoid is out.

How difficult is it to remove starter and have bench tested? If it is the solenoid, can just that be replaced or are the units married?

Thanks

Make sure the small wire on the solenoid has a good contact. If it does, check that there is +power to there when trying to start. If there is power and a good contact, and the starter still won't crank, try shorting the two bolt terminals on the solenoid (carefull, it will spark). If the starter cranks then it's okay, suspect solenoid.If the solenoid is okay you should hear it kicking in.

My lights, windows, and radio all work fine. But it won't start it makes a click noise but nothing. Then we thought it was the battery so we jumped it and now it won't even make no click noise at...


The "click" sound condition make us guess that could be a bad ignition switch or starter.

It turned out to be the starter. I first took the battery to have it tested and it was fine. Next, I took the starter apart and took it to Autozone to have it tested? and it was bad. It is not easy access to remove the starter. The intake manifold and exhaust system are in the way and need to be taken apart first. See instructions below:

- Take off Intake

- Take off Starter

Hope this helps (remember to rating this answer and leave some comment).

Car won't start makes clicking noise when you turn key


The click noise is the sound of the starter SOLENOID clicking but not contacting to supply voltage to the starter motor.
Now a multimeter test will confirm if the solenoid is contacting and if so then the starter motor is faulty.
It can be due failure of the BRUSH in the motor or the commutator. If so remove the motor and confirm.
Also if the starter pinion is struck the solenoid will click and the motor may not turn.

My darango won't start, replaced that alternator and relays. starter is still good. but it won't even click over.


this could be as simple as a bad battery have you tryed to jump start it? if you try and that dosent work make sure you have power going to the starter with jumper cables on the battery. it should at the very least make a clicking sound while trying to start it check the battery posts also make sure they are clean and if it does click give it a minute and try starting it again.[ dont take the cables off the battery while waiting] the fact the starter doesent even click when you try to start it tells me no power to it or bad starter remember just because its new dosent mean it works i cant tell you how many times i have put somethig on a car and had to take it back off because it didnt work from the boxx new. and make sure the starter wires are tight and clean. if no clicking and you have power to starter then starter is bad.. i hope this helps..

For the past year, some days the RA65 Celica clicks and the engine won't turn over or start. I patiently keep trying sometimes it only takes another go and eventually off she goes and is right for the day,...


This sounds like one of two possibilities:

- Starter relay/solenoid has a burned contact

- Starter itself has a bad winding or bad connection

My bet is on the starter relay -- but I'm surprised the mechanic didn't find it if this is the problem... Did a pro do this work?

It sounds more like the alternator is bad. This will cause the battery to run down.
