    Thanks for the reply, even though you rated me and I haven't answered your problem.

    The problem will be the negative( - ) grounding of the battery to your engine, where the starter takes the power of negative ( - ) to start the starter motor.

    Check the grounding wire or add an additional cable from negative ( - ) pole of the battery to the engine body or make a new cable connect it directly to the starter ground. Clean the grounding terminals, check the terminal.

    Check also the positive ( + ) cable from the battery to the solenoid if it is connected or loose and broken.

    If these were done and the starter won't start, the problem now will be the ignition switch and the relay. The ignition switch have contactors at the end of the key cylinder. The metal contactors are not touching each other or already burned( it is made of plastic housing ). The relay, located at the engine side of the fuse & relay box, check and replace it with similar type if it is not working.

    These are the possible parts connected to the starter and I am pointing out the parts you should check/repair in the starter starter system.

    Tell me if it works so that I could advise you more if onather problem arises.

    Thanks for using FixYa!

you can not see the starter on your vehicle from the top. you need to get under the car to see it. its right above the r/h (passenger) side axle, where the axle is going into the trans. this starter is also not that easy to replace for a novice or someone that does not work on cars. good luck.

Does the starter kick out and spin normally out of the car? Have you checked the condition of the flywheel? Ususally the starter doesnt turn until the solenoid kicks the gear out to engage the flywheel. Check if the gear on the starter is bad, it should slip one way, and not the other.

Check the small wire on the starter to see if you are getting 12v there with the key turned. If you are, then it is possible that the starter (&or solenoid) that checked out good last year is not good now. If no power at small wire, then check neutral safety switch.
