Ignition switch on dodge dynasty?


I had a similar problem years ago. As long as your dash lights come on, it's likely you can use an external pushbutton switch to run the starter. There are likely just 4 wires on the ignition switch. Power from the battery, and switched to:
accessories
main car stuff (dash lights, ignition, signals, etc)
starter.
splice in wires from battery and starter to new switch, and you're good to go. This worked for years on my old car.

2001 lincoln navigator battery drain


Did you check for B+ voltage at the heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator ? When yor turn the key to run , not start , does the charge indicator light ? When the vehicle is running is that charge light lit or off ? There is a fuse that supplies B+ voltage to it . Fuse # 30 located in the central junction box , it's a 30 amp fuse ! Plus one more fuse located in the battery junction block # 11 20amp . With out B+ voltage at these connections on the alternator it will not charge .

Sounds like the starter.If you can locate it,tap on it with a hammer 3 or 4 times and try to restart.It may take several tries but should eventually start because starters don't quite fail 100%,they just kind of get stuck.If you can't find the starter,call a couple of parts stores or a dealer,someone is always willing to tell you for free to attract your business.It should work and you need a new starter.I put in a used one a couple of years ago and no problems yet,but the decision is yours.Good luck!

The humming noise you hear is the fuel pump. It is probably your starter soleniod. If you hear an electric click under the dash near the steering column when you turn the key then the ignition switch is ok and your starter needs to be replaced. This happened to me last month.

Car Won't Start


More then likely when you replaced the water pump and starter you might have installed the starter wrong or it's defective if it used to start before the repairs u did but now wont. Also, Why did your car overheat in the first place? might not be a problem with your water pump but perhaps a bad headgasket. Might wanna get that checked.

Remove the starter & inspect the contacts inside the starter solenoid housing. If they are burnt and/or worn, you will get this condition. Replace the contacts and the plunger, or replace the starter. I change contacts in my shop 3-4 times a week. Quite a common failure. The clicking noise is the plunger hitting one contact, but not the other, due to wear.
