Neutral safety switch is possible, also ignition switch. I'd clean both ends of battery cables for starters (no pun) thoroughly. The bottom connections are exposed to grease and road grime, also connections at solenoid. Clean them with good wire brush

Why wont my car start gauges and lights come on but wont crank no power going to soelinoid wire


If the security system has been reset ( no light on/flashing ) you may have a neutral safety switch problem, Will the vehicle crank over in neutral? In most cases, the neutral switch grounds the starter relay and allows it to operate. Does the starter relay connector have 2 powers? One constant and one with key on/cranking? If these power supplies are there, suspect the ground side of the relay to be the problem and possible neutral safety switch

Ok it seems you isolated and checked the usual suspects and some that I wouldn't have looked at except one. Did you check the neutral safety switch and Alignment on your gears for the gearshift lever. If it is not aligned properly it may not be hitting the neutral safety switch when in neutral and park. Also if the switch has failed. It may not be allowing your system to start when you move the key to the start position. I'm also wondering if this model has a fusable link in the starter cable but you say that you've isolated and tested both the starter and the relay. So I would really suspect that neutral safety switch. Hope this helps.

How to fixed wont start engine..


test the following and fix it. GOD BLESS you.fe35589e-c7d2-4fa3-a813-99841956a6cb.gif
If nothing happens when you turn the ignition key to the "Start" position, it means that the starter motor doesn't turn over the engine. Most commonly this could be caused by a dead battery;
If the battery checks out OK, but the starter still won't crank, there could be a number of possible reasons. Here are some of them:

The ignition switch could be bad - it's a common problem. An ignition switch is an electrical switch installed at the back of the ignition lock mechanism. If jiggling the key in the ignition helps start the car, the ignition switch should be checked first.
The starter solenoid control wire could have a bad connection.
The starter motor itself or a starter solenoid could be bad.
A neutral safety switch is bad. If a car doesn't start with the transmission in Park, but starts in Neutral, it could be caused by a problem with a neutral safety switch.
.
A problem with vehicle's security system or some other electronic control module (e.g., ECM, BCM) may also prevent the starter from operating.

My 92 lincoln town car will not start i have replaced the starter, the neutral safety switch and the battery but when i turn key nothing happens but can jump starter and will crank


Yes there is a starter relay in the wiring diagram.
The yellow and lite blue wire goes from the starter solenoid to the relay. There is a yellow wire from the relay to a 30amp fuse. The key switch powers thru the neutral safety switch and then powers the relay on.

If the problem is the starter won't crank the engine over, check the small wire at the solenoid (the one from the ignition switch). It should have power when the key is held in crank. If no power there, trace the signal back to the ignition switch-check the neutral safety switch-at the clutch pedal-or the park/neutral switch on the transmission, if automatic. Check if the ignition switch has power out of it on the start wire with key in crank. Use a voltmeter or testlight for checking.

Engine will not crank, cables and battery are clean and fully charged.


HI there rktrogstad did you check if you have power at the starter if
so. then you need your starter replaced .
IF no power at starter then you need to check neutral safety switch
one fast way to check is wail holding ignition switch in the crank position
move trans shift liver from park to neutral .if starter cranks replace neutral
switch .OK
good luck vote

Intermittent crank no start. intermittent shut down while driving starter replaced, battery replaced, MAF sensor and safety neutral switch replaced, crankshaft position sensor replaced, battery cable ends...


Check the number on the ECM . If it has the number 1228253 on it that is your problem. They had a cutting off problem while driving. Get one with the number 16198264 on it. The 1228253 is junk and gm replaced them with 16198264.

2001 toyota 4 runner/ starter will not disengage after starting


He's right I would check Neutral safety switch first. Make sure B+ only comes out of one end of it when pedal is released. Only time B+ must be out of both sides of this is when pedal is depressed. Ignition switch can't go to starter directly B+ starts at ign switch to neutral safety to solenoid on starter.
Most neutral safety switches can be adjusted.
