I would strongly suggest checking all the battery cables and terminals for good clean connections. Then I would suggest trying to move the gear selector from park to neutral or just back and forth while trying to start. If you get a click or it starts it's likely that you have a bad neutral safety switch.
If this doesn't work ensure the vehicle is in park with the wheels chalked and us a remote starter button, or just jump the solenoid to see if the starter functions.

    I reference to a remote starter I wasn't talking about a factory remote. You will need to either buy or borrow one to connect to the solenoid to try to start the vehicle. I have seen bad battery cables cause this issue, whoever I really think you should be looking for a fuseable link that is blown or a bad ignition switch. These are the most common issues.

    why spend that much on a remote start when they make a push botton start for mechnical use and cheaper

Engine wont turn


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.

Have a ford f 350 2004 model manual ****** motor wont turn over replaced clutch safety switch ck starter relays can b pull started


Did you check for power at the starter ignition terminal? It is the small YELLOW/BLACK wire on the starter. If there is power there, replace the starter. If there is no power there, you should check your starter relay an its associated fuses.
The relay primary side is protected by fuse number F2.31 (15 Amp) in the Central Junction Box. This fuse provides power to the clutch safety switch on the WHITE/PINK wire. Then the power leaves the clutch safety switch on the TAN/RED wire and goes to pin 86 on the relay.

The relay secondary side is protected by fuse number F2.113 (30 Amp) in the Central Junction Box. It provides power at pin 30 on the relay, which is also located in the Central Junction Box.

Pin 87 at the relay is the YELLOW/BLACK wire metioned earlier and goes to the starter motor.
Pin 85 at the relay is the primary GROUND. This should be ground at all times.

The ENTIRE starting system can be checked/diagnosed from the pins at the starter relay if you use the correct methods and equipment.

My 96 ford explorer won't start. it comes on, lights inside work, battery's good. when i try to start it, the engine won't turn over. what do u think is wrong?


Try bypassing the Starter Relay. You can use a tool to jump across the terminals, but if you have a jumper cable just go from the battery side of the switch to the starter side.

There will be sparks, and the tool or cable will heat up, but if the Starter does not turn with normal speed; the Starter is bad or the main cable connection on the starter is corroded under the vehicle.

If the Starter does turn with normal speed, get a test light or Voltmeter and take off the small wire on the Relay post. Its usually in the middle of the Relay. Connect 1 end of your test equipment to a ground and the other to the small wire. Then turn the Ignition Key to Start. The test equipment should show power in the small wire.

If you have power in the small wire, then the Starter Relay is bad. The Relay is not connecting the power to the Starter. Replace the Relay.

You should be fixed by now. If you are not getting power to the small wire, you need to inspect the Interlock switch under the dash by the Brake pedal lever. There are 2 safety modes in your vehicle. The Interlock stops the starter from working if you are not in Park or Neutral. The switch is often hit by feet or gets out of adjustment through use. Adjust or replace the Interlock switch.

I hope my solution was very helpful in getting your vehicle running.

I have a 1989 ford ranger that doesn't have voltage to the starter relay. Where could the problem be or is there a relay fuse that could stop the power to the relay


Yes there is for fuse to the starter, it's under the driver's side dash. you will need a diagram of the fuses [ in the owner's manual or on-line at the Ford web site. good luck

91 ford ranger 2.9 super cab: Starter keeps turning/cranking


With fords you have to have to battery tip top condition (a must).
Now when you refer to the starter solenoid, are you talking about the relay on the passenger side fender well. If so, start there.
With the starter wire or trigger wire disconnected, Start running your tests.
Find out if its something to do with the trigger wire or if it has to do with the relay.

Where is the starter relay on a 1996 Buick LeSabre? The car will start if the starter solenoid is jumped across, but not with switch only. I need to check the starter relay, but can't find it.


ok. the relay is under dash drivers side left of the steering column. now first check for power with key in the start position. at the heavy yellow wire at the relay and then check the purple wire if both have power then your neutral safety switch mybe at fault. check it as well. check for power at the switch bolted to transmission. the two heavy wires going to the switch will be starter in and starter out. so check for power at the two there if power goes in but nothing comes out the change the neutral safety switch.
