Yes, there is a voltage regulator, but it has nothing to do with this problem. Look for a burned point along either battery cable especially where you were working with the solenoid. Check the connections at both battery posts--remove the connectors, clean both connector interiors and battery posts with a battery wire-brush device and coat both surfaces with anti-corrosion grease (from an auto parts supply). Wash your hands after this to prevent mysterious holes in your clothes.

Turn key, solenoid whines does not turn over, ground wire from battery gets hot.touched cable directly to pos term and starter, nothing happened.


Check the battery is fully charged, clean the battery posts and terminals, with a volt meter check for battery voltage on the battery side of the starter solenoid , if ok check for battery voltage on starter side of solenoid while starter engaged , if no voltage replace solenoid, if voltage fault in starter motor.

Wires on starter but wont start will start with screwdriver whats wrong


The solenoid on a starter receives voltage when you turn your ignition switch to the start position that tells it to activate the starter. When you use the screwdriver to start the car, you are basically bypassing the solenoid on the starter. Since the car won't start when you turn the key, this means that either the solenoid is bad and the starter needs to be replaced, or the solenoid is not getting the voltage from your ignition switch that tells it to engage the starter. You might be able to eliminate the ignition switch as the problem if you get somebody to hold the key in the start position while you check to see if there is voltage at the starter solenoid. If you have voltage there, the starter solenoid is most likely bad, and the starter needs to be replaced.

1992 toyota celica wont start makes clicking noise replaced the battery still happens. how can i tell if starter motor is good


It is your starter. They are easy to replace. You could try tapping on the starter with a hammer while cranking to get it to turn. The other option is to add more power too it by jumping it and see if that works. If it starts by doing either of those things, its your starter. Wrecking yards would have them cheap. Good luck

I have a 1982 dodge ram w150 318 4 speed when i turn the key i lose everything let me start from the beginning my truck started up then died then when I went to restart I heard a thunk then nothing last...


What happens when you turn the key to on? Do the warning lights and gauges come on? Turning the key to start, do the lights and gauges stay on? Just nothing at the starter?

Or does power just shut off when you turn the key to start, everything goes out, no warning lights or gauges? Then check cables, battery terminals, grounds for clean tight connections. There is a problem between the battery and the ignition switch.

If the switch still receives and sends power out (to the dash, for one) but start circuit is not working (from battery to ignition switch to clutch switch to starter relay to starter solenoid to starter to ground-and back to battery), then here's where we at: with key off, use a small screwdriver and short the big cable at starter to the starter solenoid small wire connection, or use a small jumper wire to do the same-battery cable at starter to the small wire connection on the starter solenoid. Starter motor should spin and crank engine. Does it? If so, start checking the start wire out of ignition switch for power when key is held in start. If you have a clutch switch, check for power in with key in start. Should have battery voltage to the clutch switch with key held in start. Keep checking the start wire along the start circuit. Not sure how the start relay is wired into the circuit, would have to see a diagram, but if you pull the relay out and use a test light or multi meter, could check for power on the terminals where relay plugs in. Key off, should have one terminal that is hot. With key held in start, at least one other terminal should also be hot. This would be the start wire out of ignition switch sending a signal to the relay.
Good luck, hope you find it. Sorry I don't have a wiring diagram to help you more.

If your valve body is stuck open or closed, would that cause your car to not turn over???


If no movement of the engine happens at all, then please check the following:

1) Battery voltage. You should have 12.5 volts and over. Try turning on the headlights and cranking. If they dim considerably, then your battery is likely flat and may need charging/replacing.

2) Battery voltage is fine, but nothing happens: Is there a clicking when you turn the key? If so, then check the starter motor. It's likely failed.

3) Battery voltage is fine, but there is no clicking when I turn the key. Check voltage to the starter motor solenoid on the top of the motor. If it is receiving power when you turn the key to crank, yet not moving/engaging, then replace it.

4) Battery is fine, but no power to starter motor and/or solenoid. Check all battery connections, leads and connections to the motor and engine body.

When I attempt to start te car nothing turns. Have electrical power but the engine doesn't start doesn't even click. Is it my starter?


It can be many reasons but then you must check for the starter motor voltage from the solenoid switch. So if the key switches the starter, the solenoid should receive the voltage , switch on and then supply voltage to the starter.
So if no power to solenoid, check the key switch.
If power comes ot solenoid but no output to starter, then change solenoid switch
However if voltage comes to starter but does not turn then starter coils, brushes are faulty. repair or replace.
Hope this advice helps, credit if helpful.

The car has power but starter just clicks when turn the key its not the starter i took it out and had it rebuilt and replaced the battery any help would be very greatful


The solenoid for the starter may have bad power contacts. Older GM starters had the solenoid mounted to the starter itself. If this starter has just a heavy wire going to it, trace the wire to the solenoid--listen for the click while someone turns the key. Check the heavy wire on the other side of the solenoid which goes directly to the battery positive post. A voltmeter or test light is a handy tool for testing for voltage around the solenoid and the starter terminal.

Does not start, god battery, and starter, no power going starter


Most likely bad cell on battery with not enough amerage or the solenoid on the starter is going bad. Turn car to on and Jumper the solenoid if it starts replace starter as that part is hard to get on its own.
