If you are not getting power on the relay wire from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid (when the ignition switch is turned to start) then you have a break somewhere, or the switch is bad, or battery power is not connected to the system.

I have 2006 dodge charger Rt. I brought new battery an starter an have alternator rebuilt an my car still wont crank


There should be power o the small terminal of the stater anytime the key is in the crank position. I would start with checking that. If there is no power you will need to trace that circuit back.

That wire gets power from the starter relay and the relay gets power from fuse 20 in the TIPM (underhood fuse box). The starter relay control side starts at the ignition switch. The pink with dark green wire should have power with the key in the crank position. That power goes to fuse #10 in the TIPM. it then goes to the starter relay. the starter relay is grounded by the PCM.

Give that a whirl.

1992Cadilac fleeteood brougham got new starter done put battery im and the car tries to turn over with no key in ignition and negetive post sparks battery


It sounds to me that the small post or wire going to the starter is touching the large wire. The large wire is the positive battery cable and the small wire is the signal wire from the ignition switch. If the two are touching each other the starter will engage as soon as power is applied and circuit is completed at the battery.

1977 ford courier new battery power to starter took starter out works both solenoid and starter, that's the end of power nothing to ignition switch, fuse block only to starter. Manual Trans no safety locks...


Hey Dude, there has to be something stopping power to ignition your telling me if you jump solenoid it will start, or are you doing this with starter removed, as you said there are no safety locks I thought ford used a safety on the clutch pedal. did you remove that also ? what about a fueseable link in the power cable ? or any relays ?,please know im not dumbing things down to you these are my best guesses I have a 76 do you have a wiring diagram for it ? you might get lucky try autozone library ,just log in and list your vehicle then go to repair guide you might get a wiring diagram .

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.

STARTER STAY RUNNING AFTER CRANKING THE IGNITION!


It is due to one of 2 things. The ignition key can still be sending the start signal to the starter relay through the small wire in the Relay solenoid; or the starter Relay is stuck after it gets the signal from the key and the key is correctly in the RUN position.

You would need to put a voltmeter on the small wire on the starter solenoid. The Relay should not connect the battery to the starter without this small wire attached to it.. If this wire is off and the
starter gets power, the relay is bad. If you test the small wire for power, it should only have power in the START position. The small wire should be powerless in any other position.

If the small wire has power at other times, the ignition switch is bad.

Please rate my info.

Hello my car starts in runs fine but when im on the hwy driving the starter ignites like its trying to start while im driving the the car dealership ont know what the problem is ive changed...


The CRANK RELAY primary wire (control circuit) is a YELLOW / BLACK wire and it goes to pin #23 in connector C1 at the PCM. If I were a betting man, I would say that the most likely cause of this problem is that the YELLOW/BLACK wire is shorting to ground. This will cause the start relay in the UNDERHOOD FUSE AND RELAY BOX to energize and make the starter engage. This wire runs from the PCM (Located inside the air cleaner assembly) to the START RELAY. (Located on the right stut tower in the UNDERHOOD FUSE AND RELAY BOX. Inspect the wiring harness all the way along this path. You will most likely find a place where the harness is rubbed through and there you will find the YELLOW/BLACK wire is most likely shorting to ground.

My 98 jeep grand cherokee wont start. It doesnt even click or turn over. battery is fine, headlights, dome lights, all go on. Radio doesnt work with ignition on. I checked ALL the fuses, I replaced the...


fuse 8 40a supplies power to starter relay and ignition switch, to close the starter solenoid and engage the starter which draws directly from the battery. check to see that the starter relay is closing, if not ensure that the park neutral switch is not faulty (open circuit), it provides path to close relay (ground side) on the 85 - 86 terminals. if the starter relay does not close the starter will not run. if you have a spare relay swap out the relay for a quick fix attempt. hope this helps

First unhook the battery for about a half hour to reset the computer.
does that have anti-theft on it.
a remote starter ?
second either swap the relays for the starter and fuel pump or replace them outright.
when you bypass the relay to get it to crank... will it start ?

Robert

if that radio is of the anti-theft variety make sure you know the code and how to enter it
