What could cause the part of the starter that the wire from the battery connects to start fire once the wiring was replaced? The starter was tested andthe battery was tested, both good. Found lots of


I had the same problem, make sure your wires are not exposed and shorting on some piece of metal, that could cause a fire. Other than that I would check that starter again, it sounds like it is seized or maybe you have the wires on backwards. If you have an oil leak and oil gets into that starter it will destroy it.

My 1999 Chrysler 300m has had two starter fires. Replaced starter twice in 6 months help!

Last week, my 1998 Lexus ES300 wouldn't start (clicking sound) and I thought it was the battery. I jump started it but noticed that it still made the clicking sound, for my first couple of tries, it did...


If car wont start and clicking sound is heard this is a battery related or starter related, if your car battery is in good condition (which I think it was) then the problem is your starter, have it check to confirm.

Got a 93 lexus wont start and make a click sound


this problem is caused by a defective starter soenoid, the heavy starter electrical contacts are burned/erroded, you can either replace the satater motor or replace the solenoid which is mounted on the starter.

Wont start


Sounds the starter is no good (sometimes they'll work intermittently for a while before they totally **** out). Of course it could just be a starter wiring problem (sending wire).
