    supplying 12 v to the starter solinoid will probably operate the starter but why will the ignition key not operate the starter for about 20 minutes after shutting off the engine?

  • hodgettstr Mar 17, 2011

    won't know until I change out the starter. Not convinced this is the solution but will try it. Starter problems I have had in the past caused eratic starting at any time not just after shuting off the engine?

  • hodgettstr Mar 17, 2011

    Thank you for your help. I am unsure where the heat comes from since there should not be any flow of current in the solenoid except when starting. I am not doubting your theory, just curious as to where the current comes from.

This is a real common problem on the toyota, surprisingly they have had the same problem for years i don't understand why toyota wont change their starter design but i will quite rambling, you need a starter, to be more precise you need a starter solenoid but since you have to remove the starter to replace the solenoid it is about the same price as a rebuilt starer.

let me know if there is any thing else i can do for you.

    the silenoid over heats and has to cool down before it will make contact again.

    from ignation switch to netural safety switch to starter relay to starter silnoid to starter.

If you need to start the engine, apply 12V to the small electrical terminal on the starter solenoid to engage the starter. If you have a voltmeter, check for 12V at this terminal when the key is turned to start.

Check you battery cable connections. Power to the starter solenoid comes directly from the battery. Sound like starter go to bad.

Keep us updated.

When driven for a while and machine is hot, car will not start for 30 minutes. Starter just clicks. Battery good and all functions working. Cooled down it starts again. What is the problem


Check positive cable and terminals on the starter motor are clean and tight. Your starter motor and cables may need heat shielding as resistance raises with heat.
You could also try a heaver cable to the starter motor. Also check the earthing wires between engine and chassis, and extra earth wires will help.

Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

  • Worn contact plates in solenoid failing to provide high current to energize the starter motor windings

? - dismantle solenoid and replace copper contact plates and plunger ring (readily available as an inexpensive overhaul kit). Check out the manufacturer name of the starter motor (most probably DENSO) and have the replacement parts ready before continuing (Autozone?). Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery. Disconnect the wires and cables to the starter motor/ solenoid assembly. Remove the two motor mounting bolts and remove the motor from the car. Remove the bolts holding the end cover from the solenoid. Undo the mount bolts holding the 'L' shaped copper contact plates Take special note of the fitting order of washers etc. Remove the plunger. Reverse the order of the steps above but substituting the parts provided in the 'service kit'. By all means clean the interior but DO NOT lubricate, it only glues dirt to everything. Wire brush any electrical unions prior to reconnecting cables etc. Job should take about 20 minutes to remove, 20 minutes to renew and 20 minutes to reinstall

1987 crown victoria ltd wont start when driven for about 15 minutes i have to white about 10 minutes for it to start up again


Sounds like a bad starter possibly getting non functional with heated up condition.

The solution is to change the starter with a new one, hopefully lifetime warranted if that's available.

CAR STALLS AND WONT START IF HOT


Unrelated to your stalling problem, the starting problem is the starter itself. When a starter goes bad, it will function when it's cold but once it heats up, it requires more power to make it work, that's why lights radio etc will continue to work. Hope this helps answer your question. Best of luck!
