Double check the wire on the starter solenoid that goes to the ignition. It's just one wire and can come loose. Double check ground cables to make sure they are not dirty or loose. Then check starter relay and fuses.

It is most likely due to a defective neutral safety switch. Is your vehicle an automatic or manual trans. I can send you some diagnostics.

    You want help right? So, with that being said, why did you not respond to my previous questions.

    What are expecting from this diagnosis without communication? I guess I'm asking, what is it that you want?

    There is not much left to conquer on this primary simple starting circuit.

Rv won't start. starter just clicked rapidly after replacement, battery tested good. Dash lights (high beam and Turn indicators ) light when ignition switch is un start position


Poor connection either at the starter, battery, alternator, or loose engine ground strap. Fully charge the battery also.

Wont start nothing happens new battery


1. Make sure your battery is fully charged.
2. Check connections from battery to starter relay.
3. Make sure you have voltage going to the start side (small wire) of the relay with the key in the "start" position.
4. If you don't have voltage going to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in the start positon, then your starter switch is faulty (under dash usually mounted on top of steering column).
5. If you have voltage to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in start position, and it don't click when trying to start your car, then the starter relay is bad.
6. If your starter relay clicks, but engine don't turn over, then the starter is faulty.

If you think its the starter switch here is a picture of one uninstalled:
it should be on the upper side of steering column, and you must lower it by removing the mounting bolts that are directly under the column and lowering it down.

My chevy will not start


Do you hear anything that would indicate that the starter is trying to engage? Is there any loud clicking noise from under the car? If not, there is a component that is not well known on these cars. It was added during a recall and as such does not appear in most starting/charging schematics. Chevy had a problem with the ignition switches burning up from the current the starter motor required. To avoid having to redesign the switch and do costly recall that would require steering column disassembly, they instead added a starter relay under the hood. This way the ignition switch only activates the relay, and the relay handles the high current. Unfortunately, even the relay will eventually burn out, requiring replacement. But it is cheaper and easier to replace a relay that the ignition switch. To find the relay, open the hood of the car. Across the front of the engine compartment is a metal frame that the radiator mounts to. Just to the drivers side of the radiator, on the back side of the mounting bar, you should see a relay bolted to the bar. There is no other relay anywhere near here. This is what you need to replace. The Chevy dealer is the only place I know that has this particular style of relay.

Just need to no which wires go were on a starter


there should be 2 wires (plus a connection to ground, which I think is made by it being mounted to the engine), the Purple one goes to the ignition switch (I think this should be the Yellow wire at the ignition switch side), the Red goes directly to the battery at the starter solenoid
ie...
Red from battery (fused) > ignition switch (yellow wire) > Park/Neutral position switch or clutch pedal position switch [pending which transmission you have] (changes to purple) > starter solenoid

I'm adding an image, but I don't know how readable it will be.cavgai.jpeg

Tried to start my 2003 escalade this morning and it would only click. I replaced my battery and still nothing. after a couple of min. i tried agin and it started, this eve it is doing the same thing. just...


Yes - your problem is in your starter - specifically the armature and / or brushes. The starter is located on the passenger side of the vehicle, mounted to the front of the transmission and back of the motor. The starter's armature kicks out and connects with the Ring gear ( automatic trans) or flywheel ( manual trans) and turns the flywheel ? gear to engage the engine. The clicking indicates the solenoid is completing the circuit but the armature is not engaging the gear.The positive battery cable goes directly to the solenoid which is mounted to the starter and the positive cable MUST be removed prior to removing the starter. The armature and related brushes can be replaced instead of buying a new or rebuilt starter / solenoid assembly but should be done by a qualified professional as it can be done wrong and cause serious damage to the ring gear or flywheel.
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

Starter sometimes dosn.t engage after turning key


Check to see if there's a square metal box mounted under the hood passenger side with red wires on both sides and 1 or 2 small wires out of the top or front. If so, this is your starter solenoid and probably needs replacing. If not, then follow the red ( positive ) wire from the battery to see where it goes. If is goes to a small cylinder mounted on the side of your starter then this is your solenoid. Either solenoid can be tapped as your helper turns the key and it MAY start - no guarantees though. Either way I suspect you solenoid is going out and will soon strand you somewhere inconvenient. Both types can be replaced individually however the starter mounted version is usually replaced as a unit with the starter. This is not too involved of a job but make SURE you disconnect the battery before doing this repair.

My buicks battery has just died. When I jumped it it goes to turn over for a second with a click and then dies down, but all the lights come on. How do I know if its the starter alternator or battery


if the lights are bright and you hear a clicking and your heat blows good, the head lights are still real bright after trying to start a few time replace the starter (you can try to hit the starter with a hammer otr somthing heavy a few times and then try to start if it sounds better or starts replace the starter) if the battery goes dead try to jumpit if it starts then dies after a few min its the alt if it starts runs good and you let it run for about half hour shut it off and it wont restart rite away its the battery.
