Everything lights up but wont crank the engine ovet


The way to start is to ck your battery for 12V & clean bat terminals. Ck the ignition fuse &locate & ck the starter relay for power & ground. Jump the relay between the 2 conn (pwr/grd) See if you start.. Key on If OK r/r relay, If it doesn't work, follow the RED wire to the starter & ck for 12V there. Also ck for a good ground conn at the starter (both with good readings & clean conn. If all is well there when someone else is turning the ignition key to start, then the starter is NG If readings at the starter NG, relocate the starter relay. Good luck, Frank M

Why does it shut down while being driven?


battery (good cold cranking amp)? main electrical connections ( + & - cable terminals shiny cleaned & tight to battery terminals & body)? new may not be good (did starter vendor test it, before installation?) some auto parts store will do FREE battery, alternator, & starter tests. fuse, starter relay, ignition switch?

Where to tap starter


You are only tapping a starter solenoid to see
if the internal contacts are burnt & preventing
the starter from getting any voltage or current

If you have eliminated the battery & cables &
have voltage at the starter solenoid with the key
turned to start ( need a helper & a volt meter,not
a test light) then remove the starter & have an auto
parts store test or replace it

You can also just install the solenoid,in which case
you take the old one apart ,to see what the problem
was & how it works. That is how you learn things

88F250 4x4 5.8L FI 5 speed. A friend has this & the starter went out. I replaced it & the solenoid. No big deal right? I returned it & the next day he called me & told me that the...


Its a solenoid...it engages the bendix and truck starts...bendix should retract because power to it gets shut off by ignition switch going to "run".

Only way bendix would stay engaged or get a signal to keep turning ???
Bad contacts in ignition switch...maybe ??
Start relay in under hood power distribution panel has hot or welded contacts ?

I've gotta think about this one...hope this gives some help...

CLICK , CLICK THEN STARTS?


THAT USUALLY MEANS A BAD STARTER. HOLD YOUR HAND ON THE STARTER WHILE IT IS CLICKING. IF YOU FEEL IT IS ACTUALLY THE STARTER DOING THE CLICKING, THE STARTER MAY BE BAD. BE SURE ALL THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS & CABLES ARE CLEAN & TIGHT AT THE BATTERY & THE STARTER. [CAUTION ] BEFORE PUTTING A WRENCH ON THE STARTER, REMOVE THE NEG. CABLE FROM THE BATTERY.

Starter dosen't work


Try to see if the connections on the battery are clean an shiny and wire brush vigorously if necessary.

Reconnect and get an inductive ammeter to measure how many amps are flowing through the negative or positive terminal of the battery when trying to start.

75 to 100 amps is normal for when the starter is turning. If the starter doesn't turn and draws that many amps then the starter is bad.

If you get 0 to 3 amps and the starter doesn't turn it's a bad connection or bad starter.

One can also take the starter out and have it bench tested at an auto parts store.

When ignition switch is turned to start I get a small click but starter does not engage


Hi,

If the starter or solenoid clicks but nothing else happens when you attempt to start the engine, there may not be enough amps to spin the starter. Or the starter may be bad. A poor battery cable, solenoid or ground connection, or high resistance in the solenoid itself may be the problem. A voltage check at the solenoid will reveal if battery voltage is passing through the ignition switch circuit. If the solenoid or relay is receiving battery voltage but is not closing or passing enough amps from the battery to spin the starter motor, the solenoid ground may be bad or the contacts in the solenoid may be worn, pitted or corroded. If the starter cranks when the solenoid is bypassed, a new solenoid is needed, not a starter.
Most engines need a cranking speed of 200 to 300 rpm to start, so if the starter is weak and can't crank the engine fast enough to build compression, the engine won't start. In some instances, a weak starter may crank the engine fast enough but prevent it from starting because it draws all the power from the battery and does not leave enough for the injectors or ignition system.


If the lights dim and there is little or no cranking when you attempt to start the engine, the starter may be locked up, dragging or suffering from high internal resistance, worn brushes, shorts or opens in the windings or armature. A starter current draw test will tell you if the starter is pulling too many amps.


A good starter will normally draw 60 to 150 amps with no load on it, and up to 200 amps or more while cranking the engine. The no load amp draw depends on the rating of the starter while the cranking amp draw depends on the displacement and compression of the engine. Always refer to the OEM specs for the exact amp values. Some "high torque" GM starters, for example, may have a no load draw of up to 250 amps. Toyota starters on four-cylinder engines typically draw 130 to 150 amps, and up to 175 amps on six-cylinder engines.


Hope this helps,Good luck!!

Where is the starter and how do i get it out ?


    The starter is located alongside the engine, mounted below the head. The starter gear & head are inserted into the transmission bellhousing. You should be able to follow the + cable (large) to the starter motor. You should disconnect the negative battery cable, any other brackets or covers that block your path & disconnect the electrical connectors from the starter, remove the starter bolts, remove the starter. Reinstall & replace everything as you found it without overtightening & put back on the battery cable & give it a crank. Got a digital camera? Take plenty of before pictures of the bolts, wiring & anything you'll need to remove & you'll be able to review the connections & placement as it was originally. good luck
