Start by checking your positive battery cable connection that the batter and the solenoid remove those cables with the proper sized wrench and clean with wire brush or sandpaper reconnect and attempt to start and be sure all the other wires wired to the soleniod ignition wire for one is connected and secure.

I have a question about my 2003 gmc seirra 6.0l. When I turn the key to crank the engine it struggles for a second then starts. It has the same sound as if the battery is almost dead, but I just replaced...

Might be a fuel delivery issue. You can rent a fuel pressure test kit from most parts stores. see if the pump pressures are correct or if the regulator is bad.

1996 nissan maxima is eating cylanoid switches

If "tapping" the SOLENOID ever worked... you

Defective is all inclusive... and when "STUFF"
happens (burns up)... it is VERY LIKELY to cause
COLATERAL damage...

((fix that "STUFF" later)).

At the SOLENOID ... apply "B" battery DIRECTLY
to the "S" terminal of the SOLENOID...

IF it does not fully spin up the starter 100% of the time
the solenoid or the starter is DEFECTIVE.

Starter cylanoid just replaced,now no power to anything

You might have not hooked up the main hot wire right. It is a large cable that goes from the battery to the solenoid. Make sure all connections on the battery are tight and clean.

I go to crank the truck and it keeps blowing the cylanoid fuse and i have replaced the bat, and the cylanoid switch on the fire wall. what can be causing this problem?

what have you found out about the problem ,seems strange to have a solonoid on the firewall because this system was only used on 70s vehicles since then pre -engaged starters have been used ..just cant seem to get my head around the layout of this truck ,never seen one here in spain ,anyway happy and a prosperous new year

No electric power, only to feed side of cylanoid

There is a fuseable link on the heavy wire, not the battery cable, going to the hot terminal of the solenoid. That heavy wire (about 12 gauge) supplies power to the vehicle. Take a test light and probe the wire on both sides of that fuseable link (it says fuseable link on it). If you don't have power on the vehicle side of that link, that's part of the problem. Now you have to figure out why it blew. It may have just corroded off, I've seen that happen.

'91 Toyota Truck Starts Randomly.

try to replace the starter or at least the cylanoid because the points in the cylanoid tend to rust over time and not work this should fix ur problem

My 1990 Thunderbird is getting no electrical power. The battery is new and fully charged. I have put in a new ignition switch and cylanoid switch. Still nothing. No headlights, no hazzard lights or dummy...

Replace the ignition switch. It's under the steering column covers half way down the column. There is a long electrical plug that has a bolt in the center of it that holds it on. You may need to buy tamper proof sockets to actually remove the switch. They look like torx bits but has a hole in the center of it.
