No, two circuits. work on there own, not tied together.

97 Nissan Pathfinder starter coils what do they look like


Replace the starter. It's not a coil, it's the solenoid. You can't get it without the starter.

Wire 253 holden boat motor starter alternator coil basic diagram


batter positive to one big terminal of the starter solenoid--large wire as in a car ( the other big terminal will have a wire from it going into the starter)
a wire from the start point of the ignition switch to the small terminal of the start solenoid .( This to energize the starter solenoid to start the engine.) a large wire ( 30 amp capacity ) from the positive terminal of the battery going to the BAT terminal of the alternator the plug in the back of the alternator will go to the battery light or ammeter.. wires from the start and run positions of the ignition switch to the coil. One to provide power when the starter is engaged and the other from the run position to provide power to keep the engine running
basic but it will work

2000 chev wont start at key


I think the purple wire (or maybe the yellow) from the neutral safety switch goes to the coil side of the starter relay, turning it on so power is sent from there to the starter solenoid. You could check for this signal to the relay with a test light. The key must be held in start while you probe the other two terminals for the relay. If the signal is there, either a bad relay or the coil side of relay is not grounded properly. It is possible that the coil side ground is the neutral safety switch-grounding the relay's coil side only in park or neutral-in which case the nagging light on shifter (between off and run, it only works?) may be telling you the safety switch is the problem.

You may need to look at a wiring diagram, Greg. But the starter relay is the last component in the start circuit before the starter solenoid. From battery to ignition switch to "crank" fuse to neutral safety switch to starter relay to starter solenoid to starter-and back to battery through ground. That is the start circuit. Just that the wiring tying them all together makes it complicated.

When the temperature is in the mid to low 30's, 92 Honda Civic will not turn over. No griinding or anything, not even a click. I've been told the battery, starter and carburator are ok. Help! Taxi's are...


Let's see if I can explain it. Pretty simple start circuit, but starting issues are very common to Hondas and Toyotas of the '80's and early'90's. Lots of guys used to rewire their start circuits with new wiring and relays from ignition switch to the starter solenoid just to stop those no starts.
From the ignition switch is the black/white start wire, it is hot only in start, goes direct to the "starter cut relay"- a 4 pole starter relay, the black/ white wire (black with a white stripe) is both the power feed and the coil power to the relay. Before the wire enters the relay it is spliced. one wire goes to power feed at relay, other wire goes to coil side of relay. Here's where the clutch switch comes in: the clutch switch acts as the ground for the relay's coil side. Okay, you turn key to start, power goes to the relay on both the power side and the coil side. When clutch is depressed, it grounds the coil side of relay, this energizes the relay, so power goes out of relay on the power side, as a black/red wire...and goes direct to the starter solenoid. Somewhere before it reaches the solenoid, it turns back into a black/white wire. But nothing else is in a wiring diagram for your start circuit. Buy a can of CRC electronic cleaner. Spray all connectors in the start circuit. Pull off the solenoid wire at starter-that connector. Also the starter relay , pull it out and clean the relay terminals where it plugs in. Get all clean connections in the circuit. If no help, swap in a different relay. If still no help, get a voltmeter (or a test light), when the starter doesn't want to work, check for power at the starter solenoid with key held in start, and clutch depressed. If power there, the solenoid is the problem. If no power, work back to the relay. Pull relay out. With key held in start, two terminals for the relay should have power-the coil plus side, and the power feed from the ignition switch. If both have power, may be the clutch switch not grounding the relays coil side. If no power to relay, check the start wire out of the ignition switch.

I have a 1968 F100 to start 1 wire to the solenoid the other to the coil? Please help


Um, I am not sure what you are asking, but there is a resistor bypass wire that goes from the starter solenoid to the coil. The reason is during starting not enough power gets to the coil through the resistor. After start, the resistor power source is enough, and the direct connect power (from solenoid) would burn out the coil.

When I attempt to start te car nothing turns. Have electrical power but the engine doesn't start doesn't even click. Is it my starter?


It can be many reasons but then you must check for the starter motor voltage from the solenoid switch. So if the key switches the starter, the solenoid should receive the voltage , switch on and then supply voltage to the starter.
So if no power to solenoid, check the key switch.
If power comes ot solenoid but no output to starter, then change solenoid switch
However if voltage comes to starter but does not turn then starter coils, brushes are faulty. repair or replace.
Hope this advice helps, credit if helpful.

Why isnt my ignition coil getting power?when i turn try to turn on the truck it sounds like it is wanting to crank but it will not.


Most likely your ignition coil is fine. It sounds like you have a bad starter solenoid. On some cars the solenoid is mounted on the side of the starter motor, and on others it's integral to the starter. On a front-wheel drive Toyota, it is on top of the starter motor and has replaceable contacts.

In all cases, FIRST DISCONNECT THE GROUND (negative battery terminal on newer cars) BEFORE WORKING ON THE STARTER!

Solution for a Toyota is to replace the contacts. For cars with an external solenoid, replace the solenoid. For cars with an integral solenoid, replace the starter assembly.

I believe the starter is going out or has.. It was starting but not every time  it clicks when i try to start it after i get it going it will run but if I turn it off I can get it  started...


The most likely cause of a "No Crank" condition is a bad starter solenoid. The symptom of its failure is the clicking sound you describe. The starter solenoid is a large coil that, most often, sits on top of the starter and engages the Bendix drive with the flywheel and sends power to the starter. If the internal coil goes bad, the solenoid won't engage the Bendix or turn the starter on.

1995 Nissan Maxima won't start, not battery.


You may have bad solenoid, starter/battery/solenoid connections, or gound.

Check voltage at starter solenoid when somebody turns key to start. That is where the starter switch, or relay, sends the voltage to pull in the solenoid coil through small wire. I think the solenoid is on the starter for this car, but it may be separate. Autozone has an excellent web site with car-specific repair guides and instructions. You should see 12V at solenoid every time the key is turned to start.

Check big power cable to starter that runs direct from the battery for tight connections. If you have a separate solenoid, then another big cable runs from it to starter. A loose or bad connection could be the culprit. Also check starter mount bolts. They need to be tight for a good solid electrical ground. You also need good ground from frame to engine. Its a long shot, but sometimes the ground straps come loose or burn. You can easily check this by measuring resistance between engine block and negative battery terminal. It should be zero or darn near zero (less than 1 ohm ?).

The solenoid is really a heavy duty swich to handle the high amp load to the starter. It works by a coil that pulls in the big switch. The coil operates from the starter switch and needs onlyt low current and small wire. If the coil wires burn up or there is a bad connection, it won't work. Hope this helps.
