Remove starter by 1) removing battery cables from battery. 2) jack up front of car, put safety jacks under car frame. 3) block back wheel and put on emergency brake. 4) remove the plastic cover next to tranny. 5) remove 2 bolts that hold stater to engine, lower starter, and remove positive cable, and starter solenoid wire (the small one) mark everyhting so you know where they go(take a picture with you phone camera) 6) take starter to a reliable auto parts place where they can test it.

Turn key lost all power


Clean and tighten battery cable connections and check battery ground, engine ground-should be a ground strap from engine to the body or frame. If this happens and you have nothing, no headlights, nothing-it's almost certainly a problem at or right off the battery.

1998 Toy Landcruiser won't even turn with brand new 800 Cc battery. after checking the battery decided to jump start it worked fine for 2 hours, when shut off it won't turn again. what is the matter?


if you hear a clunk when you try to start it, remove the starter and have it tested, turn on the head lights and try to start if the head lights go out it is a problem with the battery or battery cables, if lights stay on it is a starter problem.

Can a bad battery stop a windstar from turning over even if lights still come on?


It could if battery only has enough power for just the lights, what I would try first is turn the light on and try to start the van, if the lights go to dim or off, then the battery is no good, if they stay bright then more then likely it's going to be your starter, another way to test the starter is hit the starter with a hammer or some thing you can reach it while some one holds the key to start, if it starts or not replace it anyway bad starter.

Car will start lights, radio, etc, but engine


Try this:

Turn ON headlights and try to crank...

1. Headlights turn off completely means that the battery terminals need cleaning. Remove cables and clean clamps and posts.
2. Headlights have a noticable dimming means that the starter needs to be replaced.
3. No change in brightness. The headlights stay on, meand the starter solenoid needs replacing.

Took battery out of 1986 s10 blazer, put new battery in no radio,


Do you hear any clicks when you turn the key to start. If you do, that is the starter solenoid trying to connect
the starter to the battery in order to crank the engine.This is a strong indication that the starter is bad
No clicks means the starter solenoid is A.) not getting any voltage from the ignition switch or B.) bad.
If it were my car I would remove the starter and solenoid (they are connected together) and take it to an
Auto Zone type store and have them check it out for you. They have the equipment to do that. Be sure to remove
the ground lead (the black one) from the battery before you remove the starter.

Th remove the starter disconnect the 2 wires going to the lugs on the starter and there are usually 2 bolto
holding the starter top the engine. Remove the bottom one first and then the top one, It helps if you have
someone to hold the starter while you remove the top bolt. The started is kind of heavy

Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks
