    I have the same problem and wonder if the starter motor is failing as sometimes it work and others it doesn't, when i bump started the car earlier it ran fine.

I remember having a simlar problem a while ago, my friend suggested i charged the battery, left it charging for a few days and it solved my problem. Be sure to put a little bit of water in to the battery before putting it on charge. I Would sggest on tryinganother battery as well!

What could be the problem with my Ford 4000 tractor starting, I've checked the starter,cylinoid and battery?


Have you cleaned the battery cable connections? If they are dirty the battery can't put out enough current to turn the starter.

I installed a new alternator, batter, and starter in my 1997 Ford Expedition and my truck wont start unless you hit the starter. All the wires are good so what else is there to check?


Sounds like you still have a bad starter. You can get a bad one from the parts store. Go back and have them test it. Or could be cylinoid.

It wont start, just makes a clicking noise. put new battery cables on, new starter, new cylinoid. tried to jump start it, wont jump start either


Clicking noise usually means a bad connection at the battery terminal. It can also be a bad connection at the starter or solenoid.
Re-clean and tighten battery cables,and if that doesn't do it,re-tighten starter connections.Don't overtighten as copper-bronze studs can break easily.If your Ranger is standard shift (4 or 5-speed), don't get under the car or in front of it without the battery cables disconnectede or the shifter in neutral,as any current you inadvertently send thru the starter can engage it and run you over or knock the vehicle off jackstands or blocks. don-ohio

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee will not start.


The starter solenoid is attached to the side of the starter...kind of piggybacked on the top or side of it...thats what the starter wires are hooked to...good luck..Lee

Starter went out wich somehow caused the ignition to go out


My mother just had a problem similar to this on her cavalier and it turned out to be a module unplugged underneath the car.

Won't start


Check your alternator, it may have gone bad and its draining your battery.

Starter


you can replace the cylinoid,but I prefer to change the whole thing specially that it seems like starter drag when you buy the new starter the cylinoid will be built on the new starter,if you change the cylinoid itself,and you still need a starter youll have to buy the starter and cylinoid as one unit,and they wont take the cylinoid back that you broke,but either way I would pull the starter and bring it down to an autozone and have it checked for free,if this helps please give me a fix ya
