Turn key, solenoid whines does not turn over, ground wire from battery gets hot.touched cable directly to pos term and starter, nothing happened.


Check the battery is fully charged, clean the battery posts and terminals, with a volt meter check for battery voltage on the battery side of the starter solenoid , if ok check for battery voltage on starter side of solenoid while starter engaged , if no voltage replace solenoid, if voltage fault in starter motor.

Turn key nothing, but battery still works


Battery still works meaning you have lights that go on inside? That mean you have a little power. Might be battery. Check to make sure you are in the Park gear. If the battery is fully charged and this is happening you starter solenoid is worth looking at. In order I'd go 1) solenoid, 2) Park gear switch (car not knowing it's in Park when it is) or 3) Ignition switch failure.

Starter not engaging because of computer


Interesting theory - but wrong. If you know the battery is fully charged and you hear a click when you turn the key to the start position but then nothing happens it is likely that the solenoid or starter has failed

2005 ford tauras car i turn key and nothing happens fully charged battery and new starter


fuses - including the eingine fuse itself,. otherwise you may want to tap on the starter while someone trys to turn it over,. otherwise remove, test (if good) replace starter) was the starter solenoid replaced with the starter? are all the connections including the battery ground cleaned/ inspected? You may have a bad starter or bad solenoid, even new (rebuilt) that can happen..
best regards

Trying to fix my Volvo S60 2002 model. It won't start but when I hook the jumper cables to the my battery i have all interior power. when i try to turn over the engine nothing happens except clicking....


Make sure you have a fully charged battery...clean the terminals real well.
Alternator only charges the battery when the correct engine rpm is attained.
A clicking noise could be the starter solenoid which is basically a relay / contactor but can block power from reaching the starter.
Worn brushes in the starter can also zap a battery's power.

Battery, starter and aloternator can be tested at most part stores.

From what you describe, I'd clean battery terminals and ensure battery is fully charged.
If clicking still happens, I'd move to the solenoid and starter.

Hope this helps...

Car doesnt want to start. all lights come on when in the on position however when I turn it to start nothing happens it dont even try to turn over it just clicks 2002 hyundai xg350


The starting system consists of:
  • starter motor
  • starter switch, part of the ignition switch
  • starter motor solenoid relay switch
  • starter solenoid
  • starter drive
When you turn your key to start your engine, it just clicks, right? If so, more than likely this is due to a bad battery. Even though your battery may appear to be fully charged, it may have a dead cell, or worse. If you get a jump, does the vehicle start? If so, replace your battery.

Possible sources of the problem if the engine does not crank or the relay clicks:
  1. Battery
  2. Starter motor
  3. Starter motor relay
  4. Ignition switch
  5. Damaged fuse
  6. Anti-theft system
  7. Circuitry

2004 jaguar x-type will not start. turn key and i hear just one click and then nothing. took battery out to charge it and it was already fully charged. any suggestions?


I am not familiar with the machanics of this car, but just one click is either a starter or a starter solenoid. As this may be a Ford derivative, solenoid is probably remote, between the battery and the starter. Remote type, usually mounted on inside fenser wall, have large gauge wire from battery to one side and a large gauge wire from the other, with small wire(s) for starting cicuit - check connections for small wires first with cleaning and reattaching. Solenoid itself can go bad, can test by jumping across from large post to large post (CAREFULLY); if car starts, then solenoid is bad.

93 ford escort starter problem


never mind "A"join the club there keep taking the pills
take a screw driver and short out the battery wire to the small terminal on the starter this should spin the starter over and the engine at the same time if nothing happens the solenoid cap on the starter is faulty, you should here it click in to spin the motor up
if it clicks but still no go then its the starter motor its self likley to be brushes

Seems like at starter problem..


If, when the switch is turned, the starter motor does not operate at all but the solenoid clicks, the problem lies with either the battery, the main solenoid contacts, or the starter motor. If, as you say, the battery is good, and fully charged, that would mean that is was either the solenoid contacts or the starter motor.
If the solenoid plunger cannot be heard (no click), the battery is bad, the fusible link is burned, or the solenoid itself is defective. Once again, if the battery is good, it would be the fusible link, or the solenoid. The fusible link (battery fuse) is in the engine compartment fuse block, fuse number 1, 80A.
If you want to test the circuit, you can run a fairly heavy INSULATED wire between your pos. battery post and the SMALL terminal on the solenoid (just touch the end to the solenoid). If the starter turns, you may have a ignition switch, neutral start switch, or some other wiring problem.
Double check the battery terminals to make sure that you are getting good contact.
Hope this is helpful.

2002 suziki XL-7 will not start


The starter solenoid has been known to stick on these cars. If you jump start the extra battery will free it up till next time (right) If this is the case replace solenoid or the whole starter. You can also bang the solenoid with a wooden broom handle if it will reach the starter not sure you can see if from above. Ignition switch would be my second item to check closer. But starter should probably fix it. When you say battery is fully charged it should have a voltage also around 12.8.
