I have a 97 gmc jimmy and we puta head gasket on and now there isn't any power after the starter? Anyone have any ideas?


Starter relay is in the middle of the firewall near the top of the firewall. I would check connections and /or replace that relay. They are very inexpensive.
Also, you could turn the key on and run a jumper wire from power to the starter solenoid and see if it starts. You can easily get to the solenoid though the right wheel well. Be careful not to ground the wire by mistake.

My Honda accord 97 when turn key only goes click


You should have a Starter Relay which connects the power from the battery to the starter. Unless your battery is low, the starter is frozen, or an Antitheft device is active, the Relay must be bad.
Taking car to have the car in neutral if a manual trans or Park if an automatic trans, you can jump the power across the bad relay with a single battery cable jumper and crank the engine. If the engine turns over, you know the relay is bad.

Had new starter motor fitted, but stll have to push to start.


Hello, You need to check the Starter Relay. The Starter Relay connects the Battery to the Starter when you turn the Key to Start. There are 1 or 2 small wires that connect on the Starter Relay.

The idea is the Key sends power to the small wire to make the Starter Relay work. You need to test the Starter Relay. Have your car in Neutral and out of gear. You can use a jumper cable and bypass the Starter Relay by connecting one end of the Single jumper cable to the terminal connector from the Battery where it mounts on the Starter Relay. The other end will be live, hot, and full of power so watch where you lay it.

Then there will be sparks when you touch the end of the jumper cable to the mounting connector coming from the Starter where it bolts onto the Starter Relay. The Starter should crank. This will mean the new Starter is good. You can use any metal tool to bypass the Starter Relay if you do not have a jumper cable. Be Careful, the tool can melt and burn you.

One final test is needed. The small wires I mentioned earlier are important to making the Starter Relay work. You need to see if the small wire is getting power when the Ignition Key is turned to Start. You need a test light or Voltmeter to show if the small wire is providing power. If the small wire is providing power, then you need to replace the Starter Relay and you are good to go.

If you are not getting power through the small wire, then you must trace down the problem. There is a Safety switch on the clutch linkage or Brake linkage which must be pressed before it lets the Starter work. This is called an Interlock switch. There can also be a safety switch in the shift linkage which must be in Neutral before allowing the Starter to work. These get power from the Ignition switch which may also be bad.

You most likely fixed the problem just by replacing the Starter Relay. If you do not want to test, just buy a Starter Relay. I gave you extra information for bad switches and how to pinpoint the problem and this time you might not need to know this stuff.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

97 chevy lumina wont turn over


The starter solenoid will click when the battery is to low to start the car. Have the battery charged and load tested to make sure it's good. Check the charging system to make sure the alternator is good. Check the wire connections at the starter. If either is loose, the starter won't work.
With a full, known good battery, turn on the headlamps and try starting the engine. If the headlamps stay bright, the contacts in the solenoid are bad. If the headlamps dim greatly or go out, the starter is shorted out and must be replaced.
Also try turning the crankshaft manually with a breaker bar and socket if you suspect that the engine may have seized up.

1998 Chevy Lumina wont start Ive changed the starter, timing chain and battery. Ingine not locked however when trying to start it makes a click sound like bad starter. Does anybody have any idea on what...


Looks like ignition current is not being available to fire the fuel/air injected mixture from the plugs. Remove the cable tip which connects TO any plug. Hold the cable tip to any metal part of the engine block or any part of the body where the metal is exposed(not painted). Ask a friend to turn the ignition for starting the engine(vehicle). If the cable tip produces sparks, then the induction coil is OK, but since you have stated that clicking sound is heard which is actually the relay's which tries to get the induction coil to generate high current required for producing the spark to ignite the fuel & air mixture in each cylinder, thus starting the combustion required to turn the engine & subsequently power. So check the induction, belt tightness and finally the "Distributor"in the sequence as stated and you will be able to diagose which one of the above are malfunctioning............sodeep
