1985 F-150 351 windsor Engine will not crank.Have new batt,Fender ignition solenoid,starter


You check the relay out for the starter also did you try to trip the solenoid on the firewall to see if it cranks from that just to eliminate because if it cranks from tripping the solenoid and what you stated you replaced is new and not used I would say in the ignition but if you replaced with used parts good chance could be a bad starter unless it was tested as well as solenoid it can be a dud

Won't crank when warm


It is possible that the solenoid on the starter binds when the starter is hot. When you say that the starter was tested, was it tested hot?

Does the starter click when you attempt to start it? When you turn the key, the switch energises a small relay, which in turn energises the solenoid, which in turn applies power to the starter motor.
The solenoid should make an audible sound when it pulls in the plunger.

If you have a second person, one could turn the key, and another could gently hit the solenoid with a rubber or plastic hammer. This worked on a Dodge minivan that I had.

Use a 12volt test light and connect to the starter energiser wire, get someone to turn the key and see if the test light comes on, if no then the starter relay has packed in. A further test you can do, but YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL, set car in park DON't switch the ignition on, and direct feed the starter to see if it cranks the engine, if yes you are back to the starter relay.

My 2001 buick century custom sedan 3.1 V-6 will not start at all....no spark...nothing at all......with the headlights on ...they stay bright when I turn the key to try to start but nothing at all..no...


Firstly it is advisable to energise the starter solenoid manually. If the engine cranks the fault is - immobiliser, ignition switch, relay, supply, wiring or connections.

If the engine doesn't crank the fault is likely the starter motor or solenoid.

Starter wont stop spinning


The starter relay may be sticking on start. Get someone to start truck and when problem starts hit relay lightly wih hammer. A cheap voltmeter will tell you if relay is sticking or still energised from ingnition switch after key release from start position.

1988 Dodge Ram 150 318 V-8 Will not start. Battery good. Cables good.Starter is good. Put key in and Nothing. No clicks, nothing. Does this truck come with a spark igniter? Could this be the problem? Where...


Greetings!

Let's keep things simple to start with... Check the battery that it has sufficient charge. (I did say to keep it simple). Ensure the gear selector is in Park or Neutral if equipped with an automatic trans, or depress the clutch pedal if equipped with a manual trans.

Lastly, in keeping things simple... check all the fuses and fuse links (special fusible wire) that power is available to your vehicle's electrical system.

With a test light, check the starter relay with the key in start position is energising the starter relay... bypass the starter relay if no power is present. if the starter operates, you now know the problem is located within the start control circuit (from the key switch through the starter relay to ground via a neutral safety switch (auto) or clutch switch (Manual).

finding the fault should be quick with a circuit diagram.

Cheers, Jay

Ignition switch? 1985 Nissan Pickup


I have the same truck I rebuilt, it, took 2 years. Its on car domain.com. heres the link.http://www.cardomain.com/id/Marine4x4

The problem is with the wire going to the starter, the relay telling the starter to work. it will get loose or caroded, check that first, it sounds like your problem. Good Luck!!
