2001 maxima every thing cutting on but it wont start

If everything is operational except the car will not crank, then your problem most likely is the starter. Jack up car, put on a jack stand, ensure it is positioned on real metal, under the lower control arm for the driver wheel is good. Looking at the starter, in the front of the motor on the driver side, you will see the big wire coming from the battery, and a little wire with a connector.
Using a screwdriver, touch the metal parts of the starter solenoid (where the wires attach to the starter) together. The connections where each of these wires connect to the starter. The car will crank if the starter is good. If not, the starter is bad. 13mm for big wire, and unplug connector. ENSURE DISCONNECT BATTERY before disconnecting wire. 14mm nut and bolt hold starter to car. let me know.

If its a new starter check and see that the wires are hooked up right, could be time for a new starter, or starter relay on the fender well, or the ignition switch is bad.

1995 chevy 1500 with a 5.7 starter will not disengage

Make sure the purple wire at the starter is not touching the big red wire.There is a short to the purple wire or the starter solenoid is internally shorted.Disconnect the purple wire and see if there is power there.If there is then you have to follow it to the ignition switch or the neutral safety switch.If there is no power on the purple wire then it is probably the starter.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Why does my starter ingage itself when i hook up the battery?

  • Hi, If you're starter is engageing the solenoid on you're G.M.C., the Ignition switch is at fault. If you were to go under the vehicle with a 12 volt dc tester, one with the sharp point and a decent brand, and excess the starter and solenoid, with the key off 1st. Find the hot wire that feeds the solenoid. This wire comes from the ignition switch and is only hot when the key is turned to the start position, past on. I would have a friend with you for this test and safety reasons if you have to jack the vehicle up to get under it. In you're case even if the key is on only, it should not try to start. So, locate this wire, pull the coil wire off so it wont start. With key off and you ready with tester, have the positive cable already connected, have a friend touch and hold the ground cable to post and if you are not sure which wire to the solenoid you need, it will be the one that lights the tester, not the larger hot wire to the large nut at the front of the solenoid, but one of the 2 other smaller wires. If the key is off and when the battery cable is touched and held, and if the starter is engaged and light is on, stop the test. Look that wire over to see if it touching or melted together somewhere between the solenoid and ignition switch. If not, you will need to replace the switch. Follow my instructions step by step, and we can solve you're problem. Keep me informed. Good Luck, and be safe, Sincerely,
PS Like I said, please try and look the wiring over as it could be touching a Hot wire causing it to be energized all the time.

When battery is connected the starter engages

You have 2 wires touching somewere.  Possable burnt together. Check the wires at the soleniod one is ground one is hot from the switch. remove the wires hook up battery with a 12vdc test light or volt/ohm meter ck for voltage on the wires. find the hot one and trace it thru the harness cut any ties or remove and coil like cover you should find the spot where it is burnt together or just rubbing.

My starter

the wires might be fried also, check them with a meter to see if the smaller wire has voltage without key in. if so, the wire might be shorting out to 12 volt wire or the ignition switch is bad.
