The starter motor solenoid is faulty. The only real fix is to replace it, but as it's attached as an integral part of the starter motor you have to change the entire starter motor assembly.

In the meantime, you may be able to get the car started if you give the solenoid a sharp tap with a hammer before starting.If access is difficult, then you may need to place a long metal rod (or a long screwdriver) against the solenoid and then tap the end of the rod. This trick usually works, but only if the solenoid isn't too far gone.

starter wont turn or engages the flext plate,flywheel and still wont turn engine over?if this is the case you have a seized up motor,but if it doesnt even click check signal wire from ignition switch for power when you turn the key to crank.if no power your ignition switch,park/neutral safety switch(clutch switch if manual trans) or wrongly installed wired could be the problem.

I got a 1999 chevrolet tahoe. when i put the key in the ignition the head lights,and the dash light comes on but it won't even turn. i change the starter and got a new battery and it still won'


well if you have a dvom/voltmeter check the power at the starter terminals. the main terminal should have power all the time the key wire should have power only when the key is turned to crank engine. if you have power at both then i would start looking at grounds

After changing the ignition switch, now the car won't start, or even click when turning the key. What do I do now?


Changing the ignition switch breaks the communication between the key,ignition,and TDM (theft deterrent module). With out these three parts communicating, the vehicle goes into antitheft mode and turns off the starter. Read about it thru this link, also offers ways to fix yourself. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Battery seems fine good lights on dash when turned on but will not turn engine over it won`t even try


There are several possibilities for you to investigate. When the key is in the start position do you should hear a click from the starter solonoid? If so then you know that power is getting to the starter solonoid which eliminates a bad ignition switch. In that case you may have a bad starter. If you hear no click then you must get a test light and use it to see if power is getting to the starter solonoid. Ground the light and place the tip on the energizer wire to the solonoid. When an assistant turns the key to the start position the test light should light. This tells you power is where it should be and the solonoid is not working. If there is no power there then you must suspect a bad ignition switch or a bad wire in between the switch and the starter. Hope this helps.

1999 Toyota Corolla CE. For about 2 months, the engine does not start immediately. I need to turn the ignition key several times until it starts. Each time when I turn the key, a clicking sound happens...


it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,
