SOURCE: My VW Golf 1.6 will not start.

If when you turn the key to start and the solenoid wire (small wire) gets current, check and make sure you have a good ground. If you do the starter is bad. Replace the starter and your problem will be solved.

There is usually a fuse between the wire that connects the battery and the starter. Follow the wire from the battery towards the starter and you should locate the fuse.

Sounds like a bad ignition switch or a break between the ignition switch and solenoid or the connection at switch and or at solenoid. Most likely at the solenoid. I'd disconnect wire from solenoid make sure there's good contact between wire and connector. If good, polish the connector and terminal on the solenoid. Kind of like the battery terminal corrosion problem. Double check there is good connection at Ignition switch.

I have an 1989 jeep comanche. It had an ignition switch bypass. I took it off and replaced the switch and the relay. If i touch the positive battery cable to the green starter wire on the relay it...

on the relay there will be a small wire that gets power when you turn the key to the start position
find that wire and connect it to the small terminal of the starter solenoid
then if you get it right , when you turn the key to start, power will get to the starter solenoid , energize the solenoid and the starter will engage

Engine will not turn over. lights, horn, everything else works, no clicks, no nothing, but it will not turn over.

You're describing a no rotation issue and not a no start issue correct? If you dont hear/feel the starter relay clicking, it eliminates everything in the circuit to that point meaning the ignition switch, Transmission Range Sensor (TRS) (you don't have a neutral start switch unless you have a rare manual transmission), ground input from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to the starter relay coil, and starter relay are good. Based on what you've said that leaves the primary battery cable from the battery to the starter, and the wire from the starter relay to the starter solenoid contact on the starter. Have you checked their continuity? One more voltage to check at contact 30 (input volts from battery to starter relay contacts) on the starter relay socket. Should see 12vdc all the time.

You should check the battery. The true test is a load test. Does jumping the battery using jumper cables make any difference? If it starts, change the battery. I take it to check the starter you jumpered the solenoid contact on the starter to the battery correct? Have you tried wiggling the battery cables as you turn the key? They can corrode and fail internally. Are the engine and chassy ground connections clean and tight?

3.3 engine won't turn over to start sometimes-Have replaced battery and electrical ignition switch

If vehicle is Automatic check the Neuteral position on gear selector . Rock selector (slightly) but be carefull ! No crank can be Starter or dud connection . This is a simple circuit ie battery> key sw > neuteral sw > (sometimes aux solenoid) > starter solenoid/motor.

My f-150 it will not turn over battery is good but not geting voltaeg to starter help

Use a test light and check at the starter solenoid and see if the ignition start wire gets hot when the key is turned to start. If it does check to see if current then goes thru the solenoid to the starter. If it does check to see if current gets to the starter, if it gets to the starter the starter is bad. If no current to the starter or out of solenoid the solenoid is bad. If current does not get to the solenoid when switch is turned, check and see if the current goes thru the neutral safety switch (Clutch switch if not automatic). If the current doesn't go thru the switch replace the switch. If you are not getting current to the switch in the first place check the ignition switch. If the current doesn't come from the ignition switch to the safety switch replace the ignition switch.

Solinoid not engaging when i turn the key to start i have a new battery also

check battery /cables also check for 12 volts at the solenoid when you are trying to start with key switch . If you have 12 volts at wiring but solenoid wont engage then you have a bad solenoid. If no 12 volts at wiring to solenoid then the problem is between the battery and the ignition switch and or relays to the switch and or a fuse or bad ignition switch !! Good Luck swampratt200

Engaging the Starter

Check to make sure that when you turn on ignition switch the solenoid is receiving power to engage the pinion gear and feed power to the starter motor. It is new so I suspect it is not receiving juice. U may have some bad connection causing the intermittent issue. PIA.
