Try hitting it as the vehicle is being turned over, if it works you have a faulty solinoid, if it dosent then the starter is dead , if that dosent work, try locating the earth lead that connects the engine to the body that might be broken, to test this, just get a thick length of wire, touch it to the outside of the starter and touch the other end of the wire to the earth on the battery then see how you go hope that helps

Starter staying engaged after starting on 2005 malibu ls


check to engagement wire at the starter, make sure that power is only present when key is in the start position.if this is the case, then your sarter bendix is hanging up on the flywheel, this is caused by either inproper shiming where the starter is bolted to the block, or having the wrong bendix on the starter, there or several different bendix s general motors uses, also if the return spring in the solonoid is broken or not strong enough the starter could hang up. if the problem is power continuing to feed the solonoid with the key in the run position you could have a bad or out of adjustment ignition switch, since the power feeds the solonoid directly from the ignition switch, other than the neutral switch on the colomn

87 ford f-150 no elec. to the ignition ,no lights no start no nothing ,can criss solinoid ,will turn but not start


Check the fusable link just after the battery. Starter does not go through it, and it will be after the starter solonoid.

I keep going through new starters. They work ok


sounds like a bad starter soloniod or a bad ignition switch .. most likely the solonoid if it hasnt been changed ... below is what it looks like and a couple places it can be purchased ... usually the contacts inside the solonoid wear to the point they just barely make contact .. sometimes they dont anymore ... on some solonoids you could just take it apart and rotate the contact so that unused contact area is now seen by the contactor ... .. the contacts are part of the bolts where power is connected ... a new solonoid isnt expensive so is probably the best bet ... if the contacts are worn then you will hear a click when you turn on the starter ...if yoiu dont hear a click then there could be an open coil in the solonoid or maybe a bad ignition/starter switch that operates that solonoid coil ... there are ways of junping the solonoid main contacts .. in this case the starter will run but not engage (you will get sparks) .. at least it checks the starter ... the other way is to provide power to the solonoid coil .. this should cause it to operate and engage the starter (make sure car is in park) .. if that works then suspect the ignition switch .. if it doesnt work or works once in a while then change the solonoid ...

If the fusable link at the starter is broken


if just the starter fusible link is burned then you should have power to and from the switch, and also power before but not after the fusible link itself. if this is the case you may actually have a bad starter. fusible links burn out for a reason. of course, you'd have to replace the burned fusible link as well.

95 olds achieva starter not engaging


The click you hear is the starter relay. Check for continuity thru relay with battery negative cable disconnected and switch in start position. If no continuity, it probably has burned contacts. Sometimes these can be taken apart and contacts filed/sanded cleaned.

My van cooling fan does not work


I believe the power supply to the cooling fan is a fusable link. You will find several of them together by the strut tower. To do a quick easy check - visual inspection may show a burnt wire or simply tug on each fuselink. If it stretches the fuselink wire is burnt. Be aware that the ground for the rad fan is located on one of the starter bolts and is real commonly left disconnected after changing a starter. Starter solonoids commonly have issues on those vehicles so chances of it being changed is highly likely.
