Where is the starter relay for 1998 oldsmoblie


Most starter relays are part of the starter motor assembly.
Also known as the solenoid.
(This way it serves 3 purposes.
1. The Relay section uses solid copper Contacts for Less volt drop at the high current that a starter motor draws.
2. The Solenoid section is the Mechanical Plunger that engages the cog to flywheel.
3. The Motor spins because the copper contacts are a super connection supplying 100+ Amps)

Does the battery go direct to the Starter Mptor?
Is there a small wire next to where the Battery connects?
If so then this is the relay activation wire (12v to pull relay in)

Starter or master relay


HYBRID?????????????
lights , how about headlights. are they full bright>
checked all fuses in cab and engine bay????????

NO CRANK , if it cant crank it sure cant start. (m/t pushed ,yes)
1: battery bad. or not charged. to 12.6v rested warm voltage.
at 8v the solenoid dies, (bad battery)
2: bad starter cables.
3: bad starter (hit it with a hammer, cranks now?) hit solenoid too

so keys in pockets.
hot wire the solenoid.
1: starter cranks but will not start, normal. bad key line.
2: starter dead, bad starter bad battery or cables.
use jumper cables now, to prove starter is in fact bad.
use jumper cables to a good known battery

the key line is that line that is the small wire in the starter
if hotwirng works this line is dead.
this path varies by M/T and A/T tranny , not stated by you, so.

many hondas have a starter relay
how that is wired varies by transmission type and engine size.
both unstated.
but if you login to alldata.com , you can look an pick that your self
and see that relay,
if present it has 4 pins.
lets explain the simple relay
it has 4 pins, 2 are coil and 2 are the contactor.
its a slave switch (or a current buffer to an engineer)
it allows a small current to control 10 amps to the solenoid.
i will now show the v6 A/T key line tests.
at the relay pins 2 and 4 are 12v (11v about ) cranking, if not fuses are bad.
next is pin3 , if the clutch (M/T) switch is bad, or the A/T park switch is bad this pin fails to go to 0v. and the relay will be dead forever.
of pin 3, Lt-grn wire is not 0v. in park or clutch depressed fix this switch. if its 0v keyon.
then check pin 3 of relay (output)
if 0v cranking the relay is toast.
if 12v cranking its ok and the line is cut to starter .
(can sag to 11v on a warm day , or 10v in fridged weather ,not stated by you......)
there is the whole set of tests on a v6, A/T car.

post what you drive,and current temperature for vastly better answers.

Starter Motor just clicks when turning key on occasion. Must cycle key numerous times to engage starter. Is it the starter motor?


assuming the battery is good.
It will probably be the solenoid on the starter, you will have to remove the starter and repair or replace.
If it is a continuing problem it can help to fit another relay opperating off the start wire , the relay is fed from the battery, and then feeds the solenoid, this way maximum voltage is applied to the solenoid and it will work better

I would go straight to the starter solenoid connector(under spare tire) and check for 12v signal while turning the key. If there are 12volts present with key in start...replace starter motor. This is the most probable and fastest way to check you no crank condition.Realy is under dash,driver side in the event you want to access that.

Bypassing starter


the solenoid has 2 big cables one goes to the battery and the other to the starter.
the small wire that has a boot that pushes on to the screw is the control to close the solenoid.unless the solenoid is shorted,the starter should not run

Will not start its clicking but cant tell if its from starter or starter relay


You are hearing the starter solenoid,even a high current relay makes little to no noise when it switches,this is probably being bad connections on a battery cable,or battery cable that has gone bad.

Hey Mark,

Dark Green from ignition and Black/White go to relay coil.
