My car starts w/out key. When I put my batterie (new) in it. Trys starting over and over I started it and it stared but still the starter keeps firing. Also the batterie conecter seems to be magnatizing...


This sounds like something is amok in the starter, disconnect the small wires and test again with the battery hooked up. IF still an issue, replace the starter, if the starter not activated, check wiring to the starter soleniod for faults or crossed wires.

Unfortunately it sounds like a defective solenoid.

You might want to consider spending the higher ticket price for an OEM part in this case, and before you put it on I'd have the starter bench tested, my be drawing too many amps.

Hope this helps.

WONT START, BATTERY IS UP. MAKES CLICKING SOUND.


if the clicking sound comes from the solenoid when you try to start the engine the solenoid may need replacing, the solenoid is like a big switch that takes the power from the battery to the starter motor,inside it there contacts that come together to make contact & that is where the problem is.....hope this helps.....cheers

My car was making a clicking sound, so i replaced the starter, and after the new one was in, its still making a clicking sound and still wont start.


Sounds like you either have a loose connection or a bad starter solenoid, or a bad battery. Check the connections to your battery and starter and make sure they are tight. Have your battery load tested it may be bad.

If your starter came with a solenoid mounted on the satrter than it should be new too and that should not be the problem. If you have a fendor mounted solenoid then I would take a screwdriver and cross the positive and negative terminals. This will feed the starter directly and bypass the solenoid. If the starter turns over then you need a new solenoid. I am guessing that your battery terminals are loose and I would start there.

I had a problem with my starter solenoid my truck was not starting. i have a 1996 ford ranger i bought a new one the truck started a few times and then it stopped. what is my problem.


You should have your battery tested & make sure that the terminals are cleaned & well protected wth grease once charged fully. Since you crossed/jumped the solenoid & didn't get it to start until jumping the battery (providing extra voltage), that rules out the solenoid and the ignition switch. Sometimes a battery will test full without a load but will not provide the voltage to the solenoid to actually complete the circuit, thus the clicking sound. If the battery is strong, and the starter bad, the solenoid will click solidly once, passing full voltage to the starter that will either turn,hum, or do nothing. good luck

Sounds like solenoid on starter has packed it in Try crossing solenoid terminal (small wire on solenoid) to power feed on starter (End of battery cable) If nothing happens Remove starter & renew solenoid

Clicking sound when trying to start,two or three trys,then it starts. put it off and you might have to jumpstart it


Your facing a bad solenoid on your starter but since they no longer sell the solenoids separately you will need a new starter from the store. While you have the battery cables off, it's a good time to clean them completely before putting them back on.
