Hello... Ok when you try to start the engine it dozen start ...First check in your column steering for bad connection...betwen the acc terminal & fuse box..... it possible your ignintion swich fail to distribute voltage to your Clutch swich.. try with and aligator tester light.. see if your clutch swich work normaly...also check your positive cable for loos conection ..Sometime you do have voltage but when you start noting append because the demande of amperage it so hi the connection between the battery and the main interup due to bad connection .

Motor don't turn nothing dash lights and head lights 1985toyota pu


Do the gauges and warning lights work with key on? If not, check fusible links, AM1 for ignition key power. If the gauges/warning lights work, the key switch has power, so you can follow it to the starter solenoid. The start wire out of the ignition switch is a black/white wire, this is the hot wire to the solenoid, and only has power when key is held in start. With automatics, there is only one switch-a neutral start switch- between the ignition switch and the solenoid on the starter .

With a manual transmission, the black-white start wire goes to both a starter relay and a clutch start switch (on the clutch pedal), those two work together to send the power on to the starter solenoid. So, no crank, good battery, power to key, follow the black/white wire, the start relay and the clutch switch, to the starter solenoid- a hot wire there turns the starter motor on.

Lots of power, dash lights up but no ignition power to starter, relay changed, neutral start switch changed, fuses good.


Well, looking at the schematic, there is the IGN A (Fuse 6) in the under-hood fuse block feeding power to both the ignition switch and to the NO contact of the starter relay. Turning the ignition switch to the START position sends this voltage thru the CRANK (Fuse 8) in the instrument panel fuse block and thru the PARK/NEUTRAL position switch, thru the starter relay coil to ground. This should activate the Starter relay and pass voltage to the starter solenoid to ground, activating it. One the starter solenoid activates, batter power is sent to the starter motor, activating it. If, as you say, the fuses are good, the starter relay was replaced and is good, and the Park/Neutral position switch was replaced and is good, then then only items left are the ignition switch itself, the starter solenoid/motor, or the wiring of the circuit.

2000 Pontiac sunfire won't start makes no noise when turn key over . headlights and radio work and dome light .. I have replaced steering column and ignition switch


This could be a couple different things causing your No-start condition. first thing I would check (Battery is good) access the starter solenoid, the small single wire connection is the start signal. Test for 12 volts here with DVOM or test light while someone turns the key. If there is 12 volts reading, the starter solenoid is defective. If there isn't 12 volts reading check all the fuses (with test light).
The second item causing the trouble could be the Neutral Safety Switch (Auto Trans) or Clutch Safety Switch (Manuel Trans) These could be open or out of adjustment.
Hope this helps you...

I have new engine went to start car dash comes on starter dosent make any noise at all will not start


I would be checking the battery with a load tester to check for dead cell . Ensure that the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight.

Wont start sometimes


NO. Fuel pump relay controls the fuel delivery. You should NOT be hearing ANY clicking sounds when starting. If you have a manual tranny, you have a starting system that includes: a starter relay, a clutch safety switch, ignition switch, starter, battery.



On my \'91 Integra, I by-passed the normal starting system by running 2 separate 12-guage wires to the dash (thru the firewall, mounted along the firewall over across to the starter and to the under-hood fuse panel). I connected 1 wire to the under hood fuse panel (for power), and the other wire directly to the starter relay. Then, at the dash I connected both wires to a high-quality "momentary-on/off" toggle switch - this is my starter switch. I turn the ignition key to when the dash lights come on, then flick the switch, and BINGO the car always starts right up.



BUT, this is somewhat unsafe because it doesn\'t use the clutch safety switch - which is nothing more than a spring-loaded switch on the arm of the clutch pedal connected to the ground. IF you are using the standard starting system, you MUST engage the clutch for the starting system to make contact with the ground in order to engage the starter. So, check this switch first for a good connection to ground. It usually fails first before anything else. If it checks out, THEN check the starter relay, located waaaaaaay up underneath the dash, right in the middle. To get at the starter relay, you\'ll have to remove the glove box, and plastic & metal kick panels on the passenger side. The relay is located way up underneath the dash, next to the Blower housing. You\'ll need a long socket extension to reach it. Someone at Acura/Honda decided this was the best place for it. Boy would I like to whack him with a 2x4.



See this diagram for reference - the starter relay is #15.

Won't start


So it's a no crank condition? Do dash lights, gauges, and everything else work when the car won't crank over? If so, buy a cheap $5.00 testlight, and when the car won't crank, pull the small black wire off the starter solenoid. While someone holds the key in start (cranking) position and clutch pedal depressed, see if the black wire has power as it should. (Ground the testlight and just touch the wire's end terminal. If powered, the testlight will light up.) If power there, then the starter solenoid is failing. Toyota starters are very good units, but the solenoid's internal contacts get old and pitted.
If no power at the black wire, then the start circuit from ignition switch to clutch safety switch (on the clutch pedal) to starter relay to starter solenoid will have to be diagnosed. To double-check: take a single battery jumper cable and put it on the positive battery post connection. Put the other end of the jumper cable on the solenoid terminal where black wire was removed. Key can be off. Make sure car is in neutral, brake set. If starter now operates, solenoid is O.K., and it is a problem in the start circuit, -ignition switch, neutral start switch, or in the wiring.
Now find a grounding place for testlight under the dash. When car won't crank, check for power coming out of ignition switch on the black wire with white stripe. This is the start wire for the starter solenoid. Key must be in crank position. Wire shoud be powered-ignition switch is working. If no power, switch is failing. You can do the same for the clutch start switch-it's a simple switch, that when clutch is depressed switch is closed and passes power on from ignition switch to the starter relay (thus allowing power to the starter solenoid). Black wire, red stripe-this is wire from clutch switch to starter relay. When key is in crank, clutch depressed, this wire should be hot.
With me so far? Still haven't found a problem, or any loose connections? Next and last is the starter relay. It is located under dash, close to gas pedal, but under the center console, just forward and left of gear shifter. It can be tested and the wiring diagnosed there, but relays are cheap, so just swap in another and see if that helps.
If you have tried everything, and still no help, you could try a new wire from the relay to the starter solenoid. This is that black wire we started with. Older toyotas sometimes have a problem with degraded wiring not passing enough current to operate the starter

check for power to the starter at the starter's connectors while you have someone turn the key. If there is power, change the starter. If not check your ignition switch, (manual trans)clutch pedal switch, and starter fuses/relays. Hopefully this helps
