It will be in the power distribution box under the bonnet ,not many vehicles have it inside the vehicle as it saves on the use of a heavier cable ,build a thousand vehicles a week and an extra metre of cable per vehicle adds up

Fig. Fig. 4: Make the connections to the battery, ammeter and starter as shown here

  1. Check the rotation of the starter, it must be smooth and steady with the pinion gear moving outwards. Compare the ammeter reading to the starter specifications chart.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figure 5
Replacing the starter while the engine is cold is recommended. A hot engine can result in personal injury.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the nut and disconnect the battery cable from the magnetic switch on the starter motor.
  3. Disconnect the remaining electrical connections at the starter.
  4. Remove the nuts and/or bolts securing the starter to the bell housing, then pull the starter toward the front of the vehicle to remove.

To install:
  1. Insert the starter into the bell housing being sure that the starter drive teeth are engaged with the flywheel teeth, not jammed against the flywheel.
  2. Tighten the attaching hardware to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm) and replace all electrical connections.

  2. Connect the negative battery cable.

RELAY REPLACEMENT

See Figure 6
The starter relays on most of your Toyota trucks are located either in the relay block in the engine compartment or on the driver's side junction block. The cover for the relay compartments should be marked, "starter'' or the relay will have a part number with a suffix of 28300-XXXXX. Simply locate the relay, pull it out, and install a new one if needed.

My husband just needs to know where is the location of the starter relay on our '97 chevy Blazer 4.3 engine, 4x4? Is it near the passenger side or the drivers side?


When you go to start the engine you are actually sending power from the ignition switch through a 20 amp fuse [crank fuse] then through the Park/Nuetral safety start switch and finally to the starter relay [located at the center rear of the engine compartment] This relay then sends a more powerful current flow down to the starter solenoid located on top of the the starter which then closes and allows full battery voltage from the large battery cable to energize and spin the starter. I don't think I've ever had to replace a starter relay on these but have replaced a large number of starters with bad solenoids and bad Park/nuetral switches. The "crank" fuse could also be bad but that is also pretty rare.

Replaced the starter but while the engine is on the starter wont disengage. Burnt up 2 starters doing this! I've heard it may need to Shimmed, or that the battery cables may need replaced... Anyone know???


Your Starter Relay, located in the Relay/Fuse Box/Panel is sticking and causing the Starter "Run-On".
Locate the Starter Relay in the Relay/Fuse Box/Panel.
The identification and location of the Relays/Fuses should be located in your Owners Manual, or on the inside rear Cover.
There are usually Relays in the Box/Panel which are the same Type (size and shape). Switch out the suspected bad Starter Relay with another non-engine Relay that is KNOWN to work.
Recheck the operations of both these functions.
If the Starter is not still experiencing "Run-On" and the other function is now malfunctioning. The suspected Relay is bad and needs to be replaced.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Car will start no sound nothing,but had battery tested and is working great.could starter be the cause it is 1998 plymouth


1. Check the Starter Relay located in the PDC = Power Distribution Center located in the engine compartment on the left side. Remove the cover. The Fuse and Relay location/identification should be on the back (inside) of the cover. Also check your owners manual for addtional information on the Fuse and Relay identification/location.
2. After locating the Starter Relay: There should be a Spare Relay; IF NOT then LOCATE a non-engine operation Relay (on a function that works!) of similar Type and Size and switch these out. Again check for Starter Operation. If this works: then the original Relay is bad and must be replaced. If it does not work, and the other non-engine function you switched out with does still work, then the Relay was not the problem.
If this does not work:
3. With a partner at the wheel: You go under the front of the vehicle. Locate the Starter which should be on the front of the engine. Using a heavy gage jumper wire. Touch one end of the jumper wire to the large (red) wire connection (bolt/nut). Touch the other end to the main body of the Starter Motor. The Starter has two components: the Starter Solenoid and the Starter Motor. They are integrated/combined into one unit. The Starter Solenoid is the Smaller of the cylindrical shapes. The Starter Motor is the Larger of the cylindrical shapes. Have your partner turn the Key to the Start Position. If it Starts, then the Starter Solenoid is bad and the Starter (Solenoid & Motor) Unit must be replaced.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional questions or information. Feel free to contact me on FixYa.com!

How do I change the starter on a 96 sebring coupe


Are you sure it is the starter? This is a picture of where the starter relay is....may be easier and cleaner to change this first....unless it is your starter...none-the-less....here is the info....and not sure the size of motor so pick accordingly:


RELAY REPLACEMENT


See Figure 15
On Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring convertible and Breeze models, the starter relay is located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine compartment. Refer to the underside of the PDC cover for starter relay location.
On Sebring and Avenger coupes, the starter relay is located under the instrument panel, behind the instrument panel/center console panel. It may only be necessary to remove the center console panel to access the starter relay. However, if the entire console requires removal, refer to .

The power distribution box is
located in the engine compartment.
The power distribution box contains
high-current fuses that protect your
vehicle’s main electrical systems
from overloads.
The starter relay is in position #56 of that box.
