Yes, you may have put the wires on the starter wrong. There is a positive post and an ignition post. If they touch or one is touching ground then the starter will engage.

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.

Check to see whats wrong with 01 saturn sc 3d wont start


If it won't even ''crank'', then it is probably a bad ignition switch. If it does ''crank'', then there are too many possibilities for internet diagnosis. (But if _no crank_ after starter and battery replacement, it's a good bet that it's a bad ignition switch).

I have a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder will not crank or start. I replaced the alternator, battery, and starter still no start no crank any ideas on what it could be


There are 2 cables connected to the starter the one from the battery (the thick one) and the one that feeds 12 volts from the ignition that is the thin one. Probably the one from the ignition is not sending 12 volts to the starter. You can get a test light to verify that or test with a piece of cable connect one end where the thin wire from the starter is connected and the other end briefly touch the positive post on the battery. If it cranks then is the ignition switch not sending 12 volts to the starter. Or get a test light (it looks like a screwdriver with a tip) connect the black wire to any ground and the tip on the connector have someone to crank it up if it lights, is good if not is a bad ignition. Don't know how to do it get an electromechanic. Hope this help

1995 GMC K3500 7.4l engine cranks as soon as battery connected. No key in ignition.


you have direct power going to the starter. You have to find the short. Pull ignition fuse and look for burns inside the fuse box. Follow all wires coming off the new starter. Look at all associated ground wires. If that cannot be found, it may be a short in the ignition itself,

My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it


Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer

My 2004 bmw 525i wont start or crank although the battery has full power


won't crank????? Starter motor probably. Crank but won't run...fuel pump, crank sensor, coil pack and/or computer.
could also be the relay sending full juice to the starter motor.

1985 chevy truck, ignition once turned on will not turn off.


The starter solinoid return spring is worn out replace the solinoid and the return spring and you won't have the same problem. It is best if you canafford it to replace the whole starter with a rebuilt starter. The reason is since it has locked up and kept spinning it has damaged the flywheel ring gear so if you replace the starter it will save you from having to replace the flywheel ring gear.

2001 BMW 525i - Not starting - Is it a dead battery?


THE BATTERY IS LOCATED IN THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE TRUNK IN A COMPARTMENT .... COULD BE THE BATTERY IS DEAD AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED.... JUMP STARTING YOUR CAR CAN LEAD IN SERIOUS ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS .... YOUR BEST BET IS TO GO TO YOUR LOCAL BMW DEALER AND PURCHASE A NEW BATTERY
