It can be many reasons but then you must check for the starter motor voltage from the solenoid switch. So if the key switches the starter, the solenoid should receive the voltage , switch on and then supply voltage to the starter.
So if no power to solenoid, check the key switch.
If power comes ot solenoid but no output to starter, then change solenoid switch
However if voltage comes to starter but does not turn then starter coils, brushes are faulty. repair or replace.
Hope this advice helps, credit if helpful.

    if you have manual transmission, you may want to check clutch safety witch. there would be two nipples inserted on the clutch. without it even if you're stepping on the clutch while trying to start the car, the car will not even turn over

1997 Ford F150 5.4L V8 engine wont' start after new battery put in. Alternator or Starter?


If it jump starts, the starter is good.
You need to check the voltage at the battery with the engine running (after disconnecting jumper cables) to see if the alternator is bad. Voltage should be at least 14vdc.
You can also remove the alternator at home and have it tested at your local car parts store.Always disconnect the negative battery cable before removing the alternator.

1998 Sable will start and drive then after shutting it of won't start not even try to turn over for hours maybe a day then will start right up


When it won't start testing the electrical systems is the proper way to find a fix . Using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter and power flow diagrams . Using voltage drop testing !

Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Click on engine under system then under subsystem click on starting .Then click on the search button , then on the blue link . This is a wiring diagram of the starter electrical circuit. Do you know what ignition switch is ? the electrical part. , how about the starter relay , transmission range sensor ! There is one thing you can try , move gear selector to neutral an see if it starts then . If that does nothing ,check for B+ voltage going at the starter relay . Jumping pins 30 & 87 at the relay socket , where the relay plugs into . will cause the starter to engage an spin the engine . If you look on the bottom of the relay you will see four sets of numbers 30 & 87 - 30 should have B+ voltage , 87 goes to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . An 85 & 86 are the control side .86 at the relay socket comes from ignition switch through the trans range sensor to the starter relay coil ( electro magnet ) . Watch these videos too .

Put in a new battery new alternator and new starter car won't even attempt to start


Could be the security system or the neutral safety switch on the transmission.

Doesnt want to even attempt to start the battery is good


Try tapping the starter with a hammer while someone bumps the key. If it tries to turn replace starter if nothing happens then i would say the starter solenoid is probably bad.

check the battery cables at the battery and the starter. also check the engine ground on the transmission. most likely you have a bad starter solenoid even though you have replaced the starter before.

It sounds like your starter solenoid (relay) is failing. The clicking is a classic symptom. It's time to have it replaced.

A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion .In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.

The starter solenoid receives a large electric current from the car battery and a small electric current from the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is turned on, a small electric current is sent to the starter solenoid. This causes the starter solenoid to close a pair of heavy contacts, thus relaying a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. The starter motor is an electric motor that initiates piston motion in a car's internal combustion engine before it can power itself.

No power going to the starter (2002 jeep wrangler x 4.0 auto)


Hi Tyler.
By run position I assume you mean that you're trying to crank the engine, and that by nothing you mean that there's no sign of the starter engaging. Is this correct?
If you've checked the starter and you are absolutely sure it's getting power you have a seemingly impossible problem, because if the starter is getting the power it needs and you know it's mechanically ok there's nothing in the world that could stop it from cranking.
Are you sure you haven't missed a wire when checking the starter? If the car has an alarm with an immobilizer (also called start inhibitor) it might be activated due to a fault somewhere in the wiring. Some cars might even disable the starter if a critical engine failure is detected. If so the cars diagnostic system should report a fult code when checked. (And, needless to say, an attempt to hot-wire the starter is not recommended until you identify the problem).
I'm really curious about this problem, please notify me when you find a solution!
Good luck!

Starter or solinoid?


I never heard of a starter solonoid coming with shims. Did you replace the starter or starter solonoid?
