Truck will not crank over,i have power to starter ,everything works,put on new starter new battery ,cleaned ground for starter to bolt up still will not crank over there is no security ststem on it so


You have power where at the starter ? Heavy positive cable or the control wire at the solenoid ? Is the truck manual or automatic trans ? Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free-tsb Do you know how to use a wiring diagram for testing electrical circuits ? How to use a DMM - digital multi-meter ? Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click on charging system . Starter circuit is the first one under that system. Click the search button then the blue link. A lot involved here that could cause a no crank . Ignition switch ,crank fuse , park neutral safety switch for automatic trans . clutch switch for manual trans . Starter relay ,ign.fuse 40 amp , Heavy gage battery cable to the starter solenoid , an if you have B+ voltage at that cable doesn't mean it can't be bad . Corrosion will cause voltage drop , need to test while trying to crank the engine .

Do you know how a relay works ?

Why does my 1974 international 100 truck not shift from 2nd to 3rd


If it is an automatic trans, chances are the problem is inside the transmission. Probably the 3rd gear clutch pack.

When i turn the key to start my 94 chevy truck, nothing happens. the battery is good, the lights do not dim when i turn the key. Could this be the ignition control module?


if you have a standard transmission,check the switch on the clutch pedal,if you have an automatic trans,check the purple wire on the solenoid while a friend tries to start it to see if the power is getting to the starter,if it is replace the starter,if not check the starter relay first,then the neutral starting switch.

BEST TRANSMISSION TO PUT IN A 1983 CHEVORLET C-10 SILVERADO. i'M LOOKING FOR GREAT PERFORMANCE, STRONG PULL, SHOULD BE ABLE TO TOW ANOTHER TRUCK?


If automatic, two good choices are a 700r4 or an older 400 unit. With any automatic a separate cooler is recommended if used for towing, and I'd use a good synthetic fluid as well. If stick, you have numerous choices of any trans used in 3/4 ton applications or better. All have really low first gears and are strong enough to do what you need.

I have a 1997 honda accord 2.2 automatic trans. the trans started slipping a couple times just for a couple seconds then it was fine, Last week on my way home I only had 1st and 2nd I made it home driving...


Check your tranny fluid I had a similer issue with a different truck and it was a clogged trans filter which caused it to pump the fluid up the dip stick I changed the fluid and didn't have an issue again until I blew the engine. So I would change that first regardless.

04 dakota automatic transmission gets stuck in overdrive


Sounds like either the lock up converter or solenoid that operates it is "going away" Which trans is in it? I've had a similar problem (just the thump) In an aw4 trans in a Jeep, which I've isolated to those two components but it's too damn cold out to do anything about it yet!!! If the converter is staying locked, vehicle will be sluggish on starts from standstill when this is happening.
