SOURCE: wont start unless jump from starter

Check the safety switch on trans to see if the power is getting to it for the start circuit. If this switch gets old and worn it will drop the voltage so much that it wont start. If it does have voltage then check the wiring to the solenoid for voltage from the battery. The solenoid wire is easy to remove and test with test ligt and a second set of eyes to watch the light when you turn switch

SOURCE: jeep wont start

begin by removing and cleaning all battery cable ends and connections. Bendix drive in starter may be hung up but it's driven by the solenoid.

SOURCE: where is the starter solonoid located 04 aveo

You will need to verify if the starter solenoid is getting power when you are attempting to crank it. I dont have a diagram, but the clutch switch may be the problem if you must depress the clutch to start the engine.

SOURCE: 2007 ford explorere won't start. won't try to turn

Look for the "neutral start switch " and check it ...usually on the tranmission
This switch opens the ciruit to the starter if the car isn't in Park or Neutral and if it goes bad the vehicle won't start

2002 gmc 1500 sierra starter clicks but wont turn over. Have checked fuses, charged battery, tried jump starting all it does is you can here solinoid click but starter wont turn. I did turn heater fan on...


Replace the starter, the solenoid cant engage the starter because it is locked up, hence the extreme voltage drop with the fan when you try to start it with the fan on.

Wont start turn over with key but can jump accross starter


solinoid for starter is bad. on a lot of fords the solinoid is mounted on fender, under hood. if you jump from one side to other on solinoid, and it tries to start then solinoid is toast. just follow the positive cable from battery. and you will find it.

Fist of all the ignition switch tuns with out key its been laid up seveveral years.had to jump solinoid to get engine to run .so i replaed solinoid nowwhen you turn the key nothing happens youneed to jump...


As the car has been laid up many years, it needs a thorough servicing. Besides a solenoid in the starter motor, there is a bendex as well. Its role is to push the starter pinion forwards to enable it to engage the flywheel when you turn the key. And when the key is turned backwards then this pinion is pulled backwards. This goes bad sometimes as most of the things do. So it should be repaired. Then the starter motor will start functioning as it should.

Wont start with jump.


It is most likely either a dead cell in the battery, a faulty alternator, or voltage regulator. Take the battery to an autoparts store and have it tested. The alternator may be faulty which is why the system charging failure alert came on, but check the battery first and then the alternator. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Starter wont engage


The problem is either the starter solinoid (located on fender near battery) or you are not getting power to the "s" terminal on the starter solinoid from the ignition switch. If you follow the positive battery cable from the battery you'll follow it to the solinoid. Remove the small wire from the terminal marked "s" on the solinoid and using a screwdriver jump from "s" terminal (not the wire) to where positive battery cable connects to solinoid. (with battery connected). If starter doesn't do anything the solinoid is bad. If starter cranks then you are not getting voltage from ignition switch through "s" terminal wire.
