Most starters have one large wire ( the same size that goes to the positive side of the starter) and another wire (which is smaller) that goes to the ignition switch and only receives power when the key is in the crank position. So if those two wires end up touching each other somehow, then that is exactly what would happen. When you connect the battery terminals the starter will engage and try to start. Originally I don't know why you replaced the solenoid, but a cracked electrical portion of the ignition switch will do the same thing. So what I am saying is if you replaced your old solenoid because it burned out, there is always that possibility that your ignition switch was faulty and burned it out. Good Luck. Hope this was a little helpful.

I have a 94 olds cutlass ciera. I have replaced the battery, new cables, altenator, starter, and I have a re-current problem of turning the ignition and I get a click, and then finally it starts.


The click is the solenoid not getting enough power to energise the starter and engage the pinion gear. Either the battery is weak or the connections going in the starter circuit have excessive resistance and need to be tightened/cleaned.

Hi i have an Aygo when turning the key all dash board lights go off and nothing hsppens. Have tried to start with jump starting same thing happens. I suspect starter motor can you confirm


I will sooner expect some bad connection or corrosion.
Take the battery terminals off and clean them until they are showing bright, shiny metal, both inside the battery terminals and the battery posts.
Then, check the end of the wires under the plastic insulation, look for corrosion under the cover.
Then, go to the starter & solenoid and check these.
Next time you try to start it and all these connections are sparkly clean, try tapping on the solenoid and/or the starter with a hammer whilst you try to start it.
If it starts, the problem in in the starter or solenoid.
God bless your efforts.

Car wont crank


Hi Ray:
I'd start by doing a power check from the battery to the starter,
- Battery - charged, connected, terminals good, wires good, ground cable connected to engine/frame?
- Heavy red wire connected to solenoid, and from solenoid to starter?
- Solenoid function check - small terminal to positive - if it works then check power source from ignition switch - if it doesn't, short across thick wire terminals. - if it works then solenoid is the problem.
Reply as a comment to this post to get back to me.
Cheers.

What is wrong. I only hear a click when turning the key. Battery is fine.


if as you say the battery is good,and all dash lights stay on bright when turning the key,your starter motor is faulty its either the solenoid which is the bit on the side of the starter that engages the starter when you turn the key, or the starter is jammed/stuck or worn out try hitting the starter with a hammer or if no room use a long bar rest the bar on the starter and hit the other end a few times if it then starts the motor was stuck, like wise if you have manual transmission put the car in gear let the hand/park brake off and rock the car forward and back a few times then try starting, eiter way you will need to repair or replace the starter motor

short across the big terminals of the starter solenoid and it the starter spins then the problem will be in the light wires that operate the starter solenoid.

When I go to start my car it will click several


The symptom you describe sounds like a voltage drop between the starter (ignition) switch and the starter solenoid. Some causes are:
1 Faulty ignition switch - either replace or, if you're mechanically minded, try to strip the switch and clean the contacts. This is a tricky fix because these switches are not made to be serviced.
Before you go there, however, check all the connectors on the wiring harness between the ig. switch and the starter solenoid and clean them if necessary. To make sure you have a voltage drop, connect a volt meter between the battery positive and the starter pick connector, then turn the key to start position. If you measure a voltage, anything more than 1 volt, you have a problem. Another check is measure from the battery negative to the pick wire, Turn the ignition to start, and you should measure 12 volts, not less than 11 v.
Here is a quick check you can try. There are three connections on the starter motor solenoid, two heavy ones and one small one. The small one is the solenoid pick terminal. Remove the wire from this connector and connect a length of wire from the connector and touch the other end to the battery positive terminal. The solenoid should click in and the starter should engage every time you touch the battery terminal.
If this happens, you can be sure the problem is not with the starter.
If all else fails, you could fit a booster relay to the starter.
This involves mounting a relay somewhere near the starter motor. You can get a relay from a scrap yard, most modern vehicles have headlight relays which will work fine, which are mounted on the under hood fuse box. The relay should have two heavy terminals and two smaller terminals..
Run a wire from the battery positive to one of the heavy terminals on the relay, and from the other heavy terminal to the solenoid pick connector. Bring the wire that used to be connected to the pick connector and connect that to one of the small connectors on the relay. The other small connector on the relay goes to ground (any bare metal point). I hope this helps.

Replace the starter solenoid. Make sure you hook the wires back properly. Try jumping across the solenoid with cables to see the starter crank. That makes a direction to the starter. That's what the solenoid does. It connects those 2 cable ends together to make the starter crank over.
