You have some wires either on wrong or touching 2 terminals at once. You should have a violet wire, that goes to the small terminal and the rest on the large terminal, (on the starter) see if one of the large wires is touching the small terminal.

The wires on the solenoid must be backwards. There is one single wire from the ignition to the solenoid, then one wire from solenoid to starter, and from starter itself to the battery cable.

SOURCE: 1997 chevy 4.3 1500 will not start.

If all cables and battery check out....make sure you have a good ground. If that is all good you need to check if you are getting battery voltage down to the solenoid with the key in the start position. If not most likely it's the ignition switch...if voltage is ok check connections at starter and again make sure ground is good. You should see battery voltage at the solenoid when the key is in the start position....at the battery cable and the smaller wire on the solenoid. If all checks out and still no-start...you need a starter.

SOURCE: On my 1990 Camaro RS the starter is clicking while turning engine

Check battery condition. Sounds partly flat to me OR the earth straps that should be from starter to engine OR earth strap from body to engine is not connected properly.

Simply connect volt meter to battery earth and earth on starter and crank....if more than 0.2v then earth circuit is faulty.

Repeat as above but from +ve battery terminal to +ve on starter.....must be less than 0.2v or faulty wiring on this circuit.

1992 subaru legacy starter relay?? car wont start


I prefer Big O tires.. they are great at helping and are better than Firestone and a little less expensive.. I am having the same problem. I have a new selenoid but I'm not sure where it is.. It isn't like a normal car where the positive terminal from the battery connects to it. That cable connects directly to the starter..

1992 Camaro RS 25th anniv won't start. Security light goes on? ANy suggestions


I have a 1992 Camaro (V8 - Automatic) and I have a problem with it starting. I have power when I put the key in, but when I go to turn the key over, nothing happens. I know that it is not the starter, the battery or the key with the chip in it. Plug and plug wires have been replaced, fuel pump has been replaced and no problems with the battery. I have disconnected the airbag to replace it and still have the same problems. No blown fuses either. I have tried pulling out of gear and back in to make sure that it is registering that it is in park.

I asked a mechanic a few years ago if he had heard of any problems like mine. He said yes. He said there is a wire that is disconnected somehow in the column.

It happens periodically and I have to wait for it to start... sometimes for days. I have tried moving the steering and all. It will not start. No one else has ever heard of this. Have you? Can you provide another solution to this problem?

I haven't started my car in a good three months. I have a 1996 Camaro RS. It previously started just fine, but now when we try to start it, it makes a sort of 'clanking' sound. Like metal striking on...


Thats the start solenoid. Your battery may be weak or your starter needs some help after electric moters like starter motors sit they can build up gunk between the brushes and the metal making them not do much. If you take off the starter and then using jumper cables hook up the large bolt with the positie and then just touch the negative to the small bolt it should just about take off like a rocket so be careful. If it does nothing then you need a new starter or you can rebuild that one.

Won't crank.No sound from starter.Starter tested ok. Battery new.Dash lights light up.Fuses not blown. 1992 Toyota Camry XLE V6 automatic


Battery cables off the starter ,starter relay and ignition switch. these are the remaining items in the starting system for no crank and no start.
Get Shop manual and do the appropriate testing for each.

95 camaro 3.8 v6 . was driving and car suddenly died .charged battery over night. had it tested, was good. removed starter, it too tested fine. All I get when i try to start is a click. cleaned connections...


The starter is not the issue as you say the car suddenly died. That would not be caused by a bad starter or solenoid.

You car needs the battery to be charged to continue to run. While normally the alternator or charging light would usually come on, I think it has something to do with your alternaor not keeping the charge up on the battery. Without a strong charge, there would not be enough power to turn the engine over, which would explain the starter issue.

The fact that you said the battery had been charged overnight and there wasn't enough power to turn the starter over bothers me. While someone has told you the battery is good, I would take it somewhere else for a 2nd opinion. I have a feeling that the battery is at the root of the problem.

I have a 91 camaro rs i put a starter in it it wont start. the guy i got it from made a new key at a chevy dealer i think why wont it do anything. ty john


If the key turns, that's all it needs to do. Check, with a test light, to see if you have power to the starter. It could be a dirty loose battery cable, or a faulty cable, or a fuseable link in the positie cable that is gone. It could be the ignition switch itself. Not the key and tumbler, the switch on the steering column. You'll have to do some checking.
