Because you are replacing parts instead of checking if you need them or not. First you need to verify that the stater has power on the large cable. then there is a small wire on the solenoid, this should have power when trying to start, if it does, and the starter is good, then it should start, if the wire does not have power, find out why. The wire comes from the Neutral Switch on the trans. So it wont start unless its in N or P. So find the color wire that is at the solenoid, should be the same color at the neutral switch. there should be a wire there that has power when in the crank mode, i fpower goes into the switch, it has to come out to the starter. . You will need a wiring diagram for your van to go further.

I need a wiring diagram for a 2002 chevy s10 4 wheel drive 4.3 for the starter to the switch


If the truck cranks over you have voltage at the ignition switch ! From starter to switch , First off starter to what switch ,ignition ? There is a 175amp fuse that supply's battery voltage to the power distribution center - fuse box under the hood . On the lower right side of the radiator support, below the battery !

1998 chevy asto van wont crank or turn over


Turn the headlights on and watch them while the key is turned to start. If the lights go out, one of your cables or connections at battery or starter is not good. If lights dim a lot but stay on, possibly a bad starter, it needs testing. If lights aren't affected by cranking position, turn lights off, pull the small wire off the starter solenoid, hook up a test light to ground and to the solenoid wire. Light should come on when key is held in crank. If it does, likely a bad starter solenoid. If no light, then the start circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is not working. Check for power out of ignition switch on the start wire with key in crank, to begin with. If powered, switch is good, need to check if neutral safety switch is good, and then check or swap in a new starter relay.
Post back with any results.
Good luck.

Installed brand new starter, battery fully charged, and still wont crank. It starts when I kick start it. 1988 nissan pathfinder. What else could be the problem? Relay switch? Or ignition? Please help


Check the ignition switch, and the wiring to the starter solenoid. Get someone to turn the key to the crank (start) position and check for voltage at the starter solinoid. Check the starter relay and all fuses.

My 2007 corolla won't start. When I turn the key in the ignition the starter makes a rapid clicking noise. I?ve tried putting the car in neutral and starting it that way, but had no luck. I?ve also tried...


1st check the main cable to the starter make sure it is clean and tight, disconnect battery first, after that there should be a small wire going to the starter jump that small connector to the main battery cable on the starter (IGNITION OFF) if it cranks you have a wiring or ignition switch problem if not Starter time just make sure you get a very good quality starter some cheap and even lifetime starters are so poorly made that even after you replace them you still have a problem only a bad noise coming from the new starter you just put in.

How to check the ignition switch?


There are some fusible links mounted with the starter on the cable,check to see if they are burned into,pull on them they will pull apart like taffy.Also,check the neutral safety switch ,try in neutral ,see if it will start.Make sure the negative battery cable is good,this can cause the problem also,see if there is 12 volts on the purple wire on the starter solenoid when starting the engine,if not,check the neutral safety switch,if it is good,replace the ignition switch.
