There is a relay, but there are several other possible reasons for this condition. The safety interlock may have failed open, or it could be your security system too. I would need to know your model, year and engine size to check the wiring diagram.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

1998 massey 1250 diesel tractor has a new battery but will not turn over. When you turn the key everything go off and does not turn the starter


Question ,was it running before this happened

If so ,try and turn the crank shaft ,if it turns then the problem is either a battery cable , check connections at battery and starter and also the ground .

If this fails , take a pair of jumper cables hook to battery with out battery cables hooked up .

Then hook ground from jumper cables to frame and positive to large stud on starter solinoid , take screw driver touch large post of starter to small post on starter solenoid if it just clicks or does nothing replace starter.

Be very careful these are large amperage's your working with ,and can be dangerous ! if not comfortable with this method then just take starter out and have it tested in town.

I have a 1992 geo tracker. when i turn the key nothing happens. i replaced the starter and cleaned all the wire to the battery. this worked for a while . then when i turn the key with the spade connector...


Check the ignition switch steering in column, it goes bad also over time, you cant fix or rebuilt it and its expensive unit, will have to buy a new unit or one from a junk yard, assuming the battery has a good charge and new starter. try to play with the ignition switch by turning the key back and forth many times and see if you get some kind of contact to the dash light or starter while everything is connected.

I have a 2000 chevy malibu ls. at first..we just thought that the battery needed charged..so we bought a new battery.. then it still wouldnt start..so we bought a new starter and replaced that..and it...


DO you hear a clicking when you turn the key to start? Solenoid relay make a click sound when energized.
If the solenoid is not mounted on the starter motor then it will be near the battery
The key switch sends power to the solenoid. the solenid is a big remote controlled switch,and it takes power from the battery to the starter motor

Bad solenoid i would guess. Not making a connection there. Any basic wiring and ignition switch problems should be alleviated by jumping the starter with a screwdriver. I would check the solenoid and starter brushes

1997 dodge caravan 3.3L Won't Start.


clean both cables including ground. does it dim any of the lights or do they go out when you turn key to start? make sure all connections are clean and tight and that includes hot cable on starter, and the small wire on starter. if your sure everything is clean and tight. You can try this if you know how, you can chk. starter with a screw driver by crossing the big post to small post on starter but you got to be real careful as not to weld the screw driver to the posts as your are by passing the key and comeing strate from battery, if it turns starter there, then most likely not starter, if you got acess to an external starter switch it would be safer. if that all chks. out then most likely its the starter switch under dash on steering colume. starter is not a big thing to chg. just make sure you unhook battery before you take it off.
