If you hear a "clicking" sound when you hit the key, it is likely the starter solenoid. Sometimes they stick, especially if its cold where you live. Hitting the key numerous times will jar it enough so the car will start, sometimes. You'll likely need to replace the starter if this is the case.

1997 Ford Ranger 2.3L Hard Start


I love my Rangers, and it sounds like you need a new starter drive, better know as the bendix. It is cheaper to buy a new starter. As far as the door locks, I would get the starter fixed first and the door lock problem may go away. sounds like the starter is dragging the power down and could cause a number of strange thing to happen. Hope I have help you solve your problem. I think It will.

91 camry(4cyl, 5 sp) wont turn over. It has power but wont engage starter. Tried cleaning battery, new battery, new starter, changing starter relay-no joy. Was intermitant, now constant. Light tester...


By the sound of it. Can you check the Starter Fuse if its still good. you can visually check this by simply taking out the fuse and inspecting if the fillament is still whole. Any breaks in the filament would mean a dead fuse. To find out which fuse to check look at the underside of the fuse box cover and there should be a diagram.

Another potential problem would be the ignition switch. if thats the case there are a lot of ways to go about this but the cheapest way is to simply create a new lead to the starter and add in a push button switch (if done right it would look really cool since most exotic cars are actually started with a push of a button rather than a turn of the key)

Turn key and starter stays engaged. Turn key off


The starter solenoid is failing. Sooner or later the starter will probably not disengage after you turn the key off. Then you'll have to disconnect the battery in a hurry. It's no fun. And at that point the whole starter will probably have to be replaced. Depending on how long it takes you to unhook the battery. Trust me. That is no way to start your day. It's really bad for your blood pressure. Good Luck.

Replaced starter relay, as it met the rules for


You need to have the alternator tested as well. If you have a good battery but a bad alternator, it could take a while for the battery to discharge enough to cause there not to be enough power to engage the starter.

Also check your ground, not just at the battery, but at the engine block as well. Hope this helps/.
