Changing out the ignition switch wiring harness in the steering column. Everything checks out OK including the starter. I hope this solves the problem

Most everyone says it is the starter switch harness.???? How do they know ? Did they test the electrical circuits ? That's how we find electrical problem's on automobiles ! Buy a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an look at a wiring diagram an test the starter circuit ! Everything checks out OK including the starter> Did you test it . Do you know how this starter circuit works ?
How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

Do you know what a starter relay is ? Is the anti-theft system light lite on the insturment cluster ? When you turn the key to the start position a voltage signal goes to the PCM - engine computer ,not to the starter > The PCM will energize the starter relay if no anti-theft system problems , and if it see's a voltage input from the transmission range sensor switch , signaling the vehicle is in park or neutral. Before listening to someone who has no clue , your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop . The starter is computer controlled .Circuit Description
Moving the ignition switch to the START position sends a 12 V signal to the PCM Ignition Crank Sense. The PCM verifies that the transmission is in the PARK or NEUTRAL position. The PCM then grounds the control circuit of the START relay. When the START relay is energized it allows battery positive voltage to the starter solenoid S terminal.

watch these videos , buy a volt meter an test the electrical circuits .
Do you know what the relay switch is ?
The starter motor solenoid relay switch:
  • controls current to the starter solenoid.
  • is engaged by the ignition switch.
  • connects the battery (10655) to the starter motor.
The TR sensor on automatic transmission-equipped vehicles prevents starter motor engagement unless the transmission is in the NEUTRAL or PARK position. For additional information, refer to Section 307-01A or Section 307-01B .

1997 Ford Ranger 2.3L Hard Start

I love my Rangers, and it sounds like you need a new starter drive, better know as the bendix. It is cheaper to buy a new starter. As far as the door locks, I would get the starter fixed first and the door lock problem may go away. sounds like the starter is dragging the power down and could cause a number of strange thing to happen. Hope I have help you solve your problem. I think It will.

06 plate citroen c2 wont start

If you check your engine fuse box and find that your 20amp fuse is blown its either a sticking starter relay or water getting in your electrics. Try checking this first as the fuse box is directly above wheel arch and can get damp. Clean up green contacts and keep a spare 20amp fuse handy. After changing this blown fuse you will need to reset the engine management system by disengaging the battery terminal. You're clocks might be out but car will now start. Don't forget to buy that starter relay if problem persists.

Just replaced the starter. That wasn't the problem. Now it will only start by jumping the starter directly to battery. I've been told that the wire to the ignigition switch from the starter is probably...

easy just fit a push button switch on dash ,yes it is a common problem on old cars not just this make ,the ignition switch on the column wears out ,22yrs old you will not be able to buy a new switch now so a push button one from auto factor will do the trick

I would suspect the starter solenoid has failed.

A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.

The starter solenoid receives a large electric current from the car battery and a small electric current from the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is turned on, a small electric current is sent to the starter solenoid. This causes the starter solenoid to close a pair of heavy contacts, thus relaying a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. The starter motor is an electric motor that initiates piston motion in a car's internal combustion engine before it can power itself.

Corolla won't start or turnover

could be a fuse, electrical problem going to starter, bad relay for starter (located under hood in fuse box) but more than likely your solenoid is shot on the starter itself. also relay should click when energized you will notice it if you have your hand on it while turning ignition switch. and you need constant hot (12 volts), switch hot(12 volts with ignition switch turned like your cranking car) and ground wires landed at your starter, a cheap volt meter from wal-mart is not a bad tool to have 10 dollars to test all connections and make sure to have parts store check your starter before you buy one
