    You did not mention the neutral safety switch. You need to check a schematic but on earlier jeeps one leg of the relay is grounded through that switch. (will be two small black wires to one leg of relay inside the poser distribution center) If grounding that helps, likely the switch is bad..

If the starter turns the engine when you jump from the hot lead to the trigger terminal/ then no further testing is required except that it is possible that the solenoid on the starter may be bad. Usually though they don't go bad all of a sudden and you would have a few weeks where you needed to turn the key a few times before it would engage. You need to check what I mentioned before.

I have a 2002 isuzu axiom, all it does is click once when you turn the key. So i replaced the starter, same thing. It has an alarm system it should be factory. Will that make my car not start


make sure the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and the battery is fully charged , check there is battery voltage at the big starter terminal with the starter switch engaged, if voltage is ok starter at fault , no voltage solenoid or switch at fault.

On your year there would be something , like cranking , if the security is set. I would start with checking the fuses and then work my way to the starter relay. then I would go to the starter.

2004 Hyundai Elantra won't start, emergency flashers keep blinking, can't shut off, lights dim, can't jump start, clicking from under dash from relays. What could it be?


The 'Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm System" is activated. You must 'Disarm' the system using the Keyless Entry Remove (Key Fob) to "Reset" the system. The reason the engine won't start is due to the burglar alarm - it has a "Starter Kill" circuit which is activated when the alarm is activated. The alarm must be DEactivated to DEactivate the 'Starter Kill' circuit.
Another way to start the engine is to get in the car, put the key in the ignition and turn it to 'ON" and wait 3 to 5 minutes until the emergency flashers stop/turn off. Afterward, you should be able to start the engine. NOTE: This does NOT reset the burglar alarm. It will go off again when you enter the vehicle without using the remote/key fob.

The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. I don't think your security system is the problem? At the starter motor two voltage circuits, one is fuse protected and is hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position and relay is energized. Any testing at relay or starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.

Check the battery cables, both positive and negative. Not just on the battery end, but at the starter, and the engine block. The cable could have a bad spot along its length that may or may not be visible. The best troubleshooting step is to replace them.

Starter wont crank on a 2000 oldsmobile intrigue


Check your manual if you have it. I believe you need to have the key in the ignition in the ON position for about 10 minutes to reset the security system.

2000 hyundai elantra alarm goes off where is the


There is NO kill switch on the 2000 Elantra... HOWEVER, there is a thing called the Key Fob (keyless remote entry system). There is, however, a system in place called the 'starter kill' circuit and it is activated when the burglar alarm goes off.... it's called the burglar alarm relay and it is activated to prevent the engine starter system from being used. There are three ways to get the engine started in such a circumstance... 1. use the key fob to 'disarm' the system... 2. put the key in the ignition and turn it to the 'RUN" position and wait until the alarm stops (horn stops beeping and the parking lights stop flashing), then the engine will start.... 3. pull the starter relay from the UnderHood junction box and bypass the starter circuit (key in ignition and in the 'RUN' position), jumper the starter solenoid circuit to energize the solenoid to start cranking the engine -- it should start then.
