02merc mountaineer stalled while driving ive checked relays fuses pcm dtr wiring and starter and solenoid will not crank or fire {pat} also, all check ok new bat every thing else functions

PATS uses a visual theft indicator. This indicator will prove out for three seconds when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START under normal operation. If there is a PATS problem, this indicator will either flash rapidly or glow steadily when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START. PATS also "blips" the theft indicator every two seconds at ignition OFF to act as a visual theft deterrent.

Why doesn't it start?

Is it automatic or manual assuming automatic for the moment
If it is automatic try to start it in ever gear by holding the ignition key all the way on and pulling the selector slowly between the ranges
If the starter catches and engine starts the inhibitor switch needs adjusting if not go to the next step which is for automatic & manuals. bridge the solenoid power wire with the main battery wire.
If this causes it to start with the ignition in the on position then manuals may have a faulty ignition switch automatics may have the inhibitor switch wires disconnected or a faulty ignition switch.
if the solenoid goes click click faulty solenoid or if no starter action happens then the the starter is cactus

1995 toyota camry will not start.

I would change the relay switch first, but its a fact that sometimes a "new" starter will be bad from the factory. If you drive the car a bit, then shut it off and then it won't start, its call "heat soak".. basically what is going on is that the starter gets hot, requiring more and more voltage to operate untill its so bad that there just isn't enough voltage to make it work. As heat goes up, so does the resistance. 75% sure its the starter.

Car doesnt want to start. all lights come on when in the on position however when I turn it to start nothing happens it dont even try to turn over it just clicks 2002 hyundai xg350

The starting system consists of:
  • starter motor
  • starter switch, part of the ignition switch
  • starter motor solenoid relay switch
  • starter solenoid
  • starter drive
When you turn your key to start your engine, it just clicks, right? If so, more than likely this is due to a bad battery. Even though your battery may appear to be fully charged, it may have a dead cell, or worse. If you get a jump, does the vehicle start? If so, replace your battery.

Possible sources of the problem if the engine does not crank or the relay clicks:
  1. Battery
  2. Starter motor
  3. Starter motor relay
  4. Ignition switch
  5. Damaged fuse
  6. Anti-theft system
  7. Circuitry

How do you tell if a starter is going bad

The starter will drag and not turn the engine over very fast. The starter solenoid is part of the starter also. It will just click a few times before it starts turning the engine over if it is going bad. It will steadily get worse. You will have to click the starter solenoid several times before it will start after several times. Eventually it will not engage the starter.

Sometimes I turn the ignition key to start my 2007 4.7 v-8 tundra pickup & I just here a click after trying several times the starter engages . Not several clicks just one . After checking battery...

The problem is the starter solenoid. It will steadily get worse until it just won't start anymore. The solenoid has corrosion between the contacts. When you turn the key the contacts are not making connection. The corrosion will get a little worse each time you crank it.

My 95 nissan maxima won't start. I have been having an issue with it not starting or delaying to start. We changed the battery and then it wouldn't start completely...we heard a click. I waited about an...

When you changed the battery to a new one, did you make sure that the contacts were very shiny and clean before installing?

An ignition switch if worn out may cause the ignition system to not get power. Do all of the indicator lights and horn power up before trying to start?

If it were a starter or solenoid, the car wouldn't turn over at all or very slowly while drawing a lot of current.

I would have it towed to a garage that can perform a starting charging test.

Then, I would address the issue with it not starting when it turns over fine.

Good luck on this repair.

I don't think my truck is getting a full 12 volts during startup.

The starter is at fault,the contacts are bad in the starter,and it is drawing to much amps from the ignition.

My 1992 pickup won't start, even though battery is OK. Someone suggested hitting the starter with hammer gently. Does this make sense and where is the starter. Thanks

The starter is down on the right side of the engine,just follow baterry positive wire to it.Check all wires are clean at the starter.Check for a live feed to the small wire at the starter with some one holding the key in the start possition,If your getting a live feed then you have a problem with the starter motor change it,If you are not getting a live feed to the small wire when the key is turned then your problem is from the ignition switch to starter .

My '98 S10 ignition switch will click, then work.

first check all cables for corrosion on the battery. then go under the truck and check all cables that are on the starter. if they are clean then replace the starter because the solenoid is going bad.
