Appears to be a cranking isuue. Ford uses a starter relay an normally mounte under hood on left fender.. Battery + cable will ytake yo to it. Nake sure vehicle is in park or neutral. The relay has two large posts. momentarily jump the two and see if it cranks. If it does, Momentarily jump the post from the battery to the small post that has a push on wire connectorr. SShould crank that small wire is the one energize when you turn the key. Ck the wire for current if t he engine cranks in bith of your jumo tests. Good Luck -Ned

04 Chevy Venture all electrical dead... jumped it and all electrical came on, except starter only clicks, checked both fuse boxes battery tested good. I remove jumper cables, goes completely dead.


Check the battery cable to be sure it is clean inside and tight on the battery post. Make sure you are getting power to the starter and if so check the starter for a bad solenoid.

I have put a new starter on and it wont start


Put a voltmeter across the terminals (main current supply) and check for power. If power get someone to try start and watch the voltage, it shouldn't change, if it drops dramatically you have a cable/joint/fuse/battery problem. If no power, then look for cable/fusable link problems.

If it doesn't change and has power, check the solenoid terminal to earth, it should have no power until a start is attempted. If it doesn't have power when a start is attempted check the connectors back to the ignition key (you'll need a wiring diagram.)

If you do get power when trying to start remove the starter motor and check it... The solenoid should:

1/ Kick the drive gear forward
2/ close a set of 'power' contacts to drive the starter.

If you get a 'click' when installed (1) is usually happening, but it may be there is dirt on the shaft which stops it getting to (2) and therefore it won't kick the engine over... a well placed hammer blow can sometimes prove that, but it's better to just take it off the engine and test it on the bench.

19882 lincoln no start condition, new starter relay, new battery, starter motor bench tested, continuity test on wire all checks out now clue where to go next


Hello! Disable ignition by unplugging the coil wire...Using a volt meter place positive lead on the positive terminal of the battery...place the other lead on the battery lead of the starter...Turn the key to start...If you read .5volts or higher there is a high resistance in the starter cables or ground cables...

95 jetta wont start unless you pop start it i changed the starter i have all the power just when i turn the key nothing


check your fuses under the hood and under the dash
check polarity of battery (if you unhooked booth leads)
is the battery any good?
you probly conected the leads to the starter incorectly (recheck them)

(the following asume your tur n key ignition system is functioning properly)
to test your tur n key system simply hook up a test light to the small lead running to the starter cylynoid "while the wire is disconected" and have a friend turn the ignition over. [dont furget to test the test light first lol]

or even got the wrong starter completly (usaly a store problem)
did you " bench test" the new/used starter befor installing it ?
iv goten brand new starters doa

is the ground strap hooked up ? is there corosian on the battery posts or any of the high amperage conections?

is the cylynoid on the starter or somewhere else under the hood?
cautiously try to bypass the cylynoid ie run a hot wire to the small lead on the cylynoid
(this can usaly be done by jumping from the main red wire on the starter to the hot lead of the cylynoid)

notes: when bypassing the ingnition system (jumping the cylynoid)
DO NOT have the ignition in the on postion and it is best to remove the lead from the cylynoid (incase of a short in the wire's some place)

if nothing remove the large red wire on the cylynoid and touch it directly to the starter lead itself (there will be a fair amount of spark when doing this its normal) but make shur you are conecting to the starter lead and not a gound point as this will cause exsesive sparking that isn't good
dose the starter tur n the engine over
back track untill you find the fault be it starter itself,cyclynoid,wiring,blown fuse,corosion,bad battery,

still cant find the problem take it to a shop!
hope i helped yah

Ignition problem on ford escort.


The battery might seem ok but I would take it to a place like Sears or a large auto parts store.Call them first to be sure they have a load tester.. Tell them the battery needs to be "load tested".When you turn the key to start it takes alot more amp power to turn the engine over.
I hope this helps you.

04 chevy 2500HD start relay /Circuit braker turns off @ key crank


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Any fuses in the diagram, test for voltage, some are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on.
Use a digital multimeter across battery posts, everything off, the generic spec for a full charge is around 12.6 volts. Leave the leads hooked up to battery, have a helper turn key to crank, how far does it drop? In my opinion it shouldn't drop much under 10 volts, I wouldn't argue with 9.6 volts.

04 pontiac grand prix wont start.


first remove the battery and take it to a auto parts place and have them check it. move on from there. if the battery is good the do a starter draw test. take a meter and hook it to your battery. now have someone try and start the car. if the voltage on the battery drops from 12.8 to below 9 volts then the starter is bad. if the voltage doesnt drop much at all then its prolly the solenoid both of which require starter replacement since most solenoids are on starters. if still nothing then check ignition switch. but before anything else ensure vehicle is in park. if it is in part use a meter to test neutral safety switch.
