Take off old starter and match it up. They could have either one on that year model.

1997 toyota tercel has brand new starter in it but when I turn key to start it the starter keeps trying to star even with the engine running, when I turn car off and take key out it still continues to


Hello Theresa Honeycutt,

There is an easily explainable configuration that would cause your dilemma on OLD FASHION 4 connection (two big posts & two small gauge wire posts) starter SOLENOIDS...

1997 Tercel is 3 wire (can't happen)

Technically what you are describing is not possible as a USER MISTAKE because the TOYOTA solenoid only has THREE Battery TERMINALS showing.

It is a MANUFACTURING DEFECT.

YOU will need to return the starter as DEFECTIVE and get another one..

Fault: The primary winding of the ("s" lead on classic drawings ... "st1" lead on the 1997 Tercel) has a DIRECT SHORT to the output battery (starter motor side) of the main battery source (internal solenoid defect).

There should be ABSOLUTELY no continuity between the large posts (battery & motor) and the ST1 terminal WITHOUT THE STARTER switch ("st1") momentary contact being energized.

Then inspect the Ring gear on the vehicle to assure no
GEAR TEETH have been broken off in the previous melee... (Serious job... hope not).

Solenoid Replacement
  1. Remove the starter.
  2. Unscrew the two solenoid switch (magnetic switch) retaining screws.
  3. Remove the solenoid. In order to unhook the solenoid from the starter drive lever, lift it up at the same time that you are pulling it out of the starter housing.
  4. Installation is in the reverse order of removal. Make sure that the solenoid switch is properly engaged with the drive lever before tightening the mounting screws.

Brush Replacement
NON-REDUCTION GEAR TYPE

  1. Remove the starter.
  2. Remove the solenoid (magnetic switch).
  3. Unfasten the two end frame cap mounting bolts and remove the end frame cap.
  4. Remove the O-ring and lock plate from the armature shaft groove, then slide the shims off the shaft.
  5. Unfasten the two long housing screws (at the front of the starter) and carefully pull off the end plate.
  6. Using a screwdriver, separate the brushes from the brush holder.
  7. Slide the brush holder off of the armature shaft.
  8. Crush the old brushes off of the copper braid and file away any remaining solder.
  9. Fit the new brushes to the braid and spread the braid slightly.
Use a soldering iron of at least 250 watts.
  1. Using a light-grade solder, solder the brush to the braid. Grip the copper braid with flat pliers to prevent the solder from flowing down its length.
  2. File off any extra solder and then repeat the procedure for the remaining three brushes.
  3. Installation is in the reverse order of removal.

When installing the brush holder, make sure that the brushes line up properly.
REDUCTION GEAR TYPE
  1. Remove the starter and the solenoid.
  2. Remove the through-bolts and the rear cover. The rear cover can be pried off with a small prytool, but be careful not to damage the O-ring.
  3. Separate the starter housing, armature, and brush holder from the center housing. They can be removed as an assembly.
  4. Remove the positive side brush from its holder. The positive brush is insulated from the brush holder, and its lead wire is connected to the field coil.
  5. Carefully lift the negative brush from the commutator and remove it from the holder.
  6. Installation is in the reverse order of removal.

Starter Drive Replacement
NON-REDUCTION GEAR TYPE
  1. With the starter motor removed from the vehicle, separate the solenoid from the starter.
  2. Remove the two through-bolts and separate the gear case from the yoke housing.
  3. Remove the pinion stopper clip and the pinion stopper.
  4. Slide the starter drive off the armature shaft.
  5. Install the starter drive and reassemble the starter in the reverse order of removal.

REDUCTION GEAR TYPE
  1. Remove the starter.
  2. Unfasten the solenoid and the shift lever.
  3. Remove the bolts securing the center housing to the front cover and separate the parts.
  4. Remove the gears and starter drive.
  5. Installation is in the reverse order of removal.

How to get to the starter


STARTING SYSTEM Starter REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Disconnect the wiring from the starter motor 88162p10.jpg
Fig. 2: After unbolting the starter, remove it from the vehicle 88162p11.jpg
In 1978, a gear reduction starter was introduced on some Canadian and United States models. The differences between the gear reduction and conventional starters are: the gear reduction starter has a set of ratio reduction gears while the conventional starter does not. The extra gears on the gear reduction starter make the starter pinion gear turn at about half the speed of the starter, giving the starter twice the turning power of a conventional starter.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery.
  2. Tag and disconnect the wiring at the starter, taking note of the positions for correct reinstallation.
  3. Remove the bolts attaching the starter to the engine and remove the starter from the vehicle.
  4. Install the starter in the reverse order of removal.

Where is the starter located?


Honda Accord/Prelude 1984-1995 Repair Guide

Starter
Accords and Preludes may be fitted with either a direct-drive starter or a gear reduction starter. The differences are internal and depend on the manufacturer of the starter.

The two units are similar in operation and service. Both starters are 4-pole, series wound, DC units to which an outboard solenoid is mounted. When the ignition switch is turned to the START position, the solenoid armature is drawn in, engaging the starter pinion with the engine flywheel. When the starter pinion and flywheel are fully engaged, the solenoid armature closes the main contacts for the starter, causing the starter to crank the engine


When the engine starts, the increased speed of the flywheel causes the gear to overrun the starter clutch and rotor. The gear continues in full mesh until the ignition is released from the START to the ON position, interrupting the starter current. A spring then returns the gear to its neutral position.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect both battery terminals, negative first.
  2. Disconnect the large cable from the starter motor; label and disconnect the wiring to the starter solenoid. Certain engine/transmission combinations have an engine harness secured in a clip on the starter or transaxle. Remove the harness from the clip and position it out of the way.

  1. Remove the starter motor by loosening the attaching bolts.
To install:
  1. To install, reverse the removal procedures. Tighten the starter-to-engine bolts to 47 ft. lbs. (64 Nm) on the Accord V-6 and 32 ft. lbs. (45 Nm) on other models.
  2. Connect the wiring to the starter securely.
  3. Connect the battery cables, positive cable first.
STARTER SOLENOID REPLACEMENT
  1. Remove the starter from the vehicle.
  2. Remove the screws securing the solenoid to the starter housing.
  3. Pull out the solenoid. On the Nippodenso type, there is a spring on the shaft and a steel ball at the end of the shaft, be sure not to lose them. On the Mitsuba type, move the solenoid away from the plane of the armature to disengage it from the solenoid lever.
To install:
  1. Install the solenoid with a new gasket (if equipped). On the Mitsuba type, make certain the lever is correctly installed to, and engaged with, the lever. On the Nippodenso unit, make certain the steel ball and spring are correctly placed. All the sliding surfaces of the solenoid should be lightly greased before installation.
  2. Tighten the retaining screws until snug.
  3. Install the starter.
Good luck (remember rated and comment this post).

What kind of starter does a 1993 Toyota Tercel 1.5 engine take


That is a problem with some vehicle parts, and about the only way to know for sure is to look for a part # or name on the starter itself, otherwise you have to hope they stock the one you need. Yes I see one is direct drive, and the other is gear reduction. May I suggest, if you can't take it off & get in for another, try to get a clear digital camera picture of it, print it off & take it to parts store for them to compare to the picture they have.
