Shift it into neutral and try. If it starts, the neutral safety switch needs to be adjusted. Some have made a starter bypass mode using a relay feeding the started directly from the battery. Check out Subaru-svx.net

How do you wire up 4 6 volt batteries in a 1976 kenworth. 12 volt lights 24 volt starter


When you go pos to neg from one battery to the next it increases voltage, pos to pos just increases amperage. You would want to wire 2 in series, just imagine stacking batteries in a flash light, pos from one to neg on next. Remaining pos and neg are 12v now. Run both remaining pos to starter and ground both negs. your pushing a lot of amps with the batteries and doing 12v, and your charging system is 12v. If you do another series from there, you have to regulate the voltage when the starter kicks in...you risk burning every light and electric component...just like running 12v in 6v system... You can also use 4 12v batteries and run all pos to pos and all neg to neg and have mega cranking amps...that is how all modern big trucks are set up. Your pushing around 7k cranking amps that way(1500 per battery)...plenty to start the healthiest cat... And don't have the worry of dual voltages or running in series. You really don't need 24v to start and unless you have a 24v alternator, these are your 2 options. Best bet if your not sure is to try with 12v...no risk of frying anything even on 24v system. 24v on 12v system is, on the other hand, a big risk. 43bf17ec-4e37-4a15-a147-d1e7a1377d9f.jpg

I replaced the battery terminal cable ends. Now the car will not start, There is a clicking noise from the starter.


Bad connection on cable ends or where they connect to battery. Quick check is if you have a good set of jumper cables, use the jumper cable as a replacement for what maybe the defective one. Hook negative cable good to battery neg. post and then put other side on neg cable to engine ground on block. See if it cranks, if it does than the trouble is on the neg. cable. If not then put positive cable on pos. post of battery. Then put other side of pos. cable on the starter post, try to start. If it cranks then the trouble is on the pos side of cable. Hope this helps.

Starter wiring


According to my wiring diagram, you should only have one small wire which is purple. That wire goes on the R or S terminal. The I terminal was used for cars with point system ignition before electronic ignition.
The purple wire should be hot when the key switch is in the start position.

First thing every morn. I have to jump it off at the starter. won't work at battery. after 1st start, it will start fine all day. Battery checks out fine. It's like the power does not get to the starter...


It sounds like possible bad batt cable or connection as it takes a bit more batt power when engine is cold to crank engine. if you have a volt meter, you can check this. set to volts dc and put one lead on batt neg. post and one on engine block, crank engine, in theroy you should not see any voltage but if you do, that is whats lost in neg cable, in my exp. you will see about .5 volts if you see too much more than that, i would be looking at cable. you can do same thing on pos. side but keep in mind if you go from batt pos. to large stater pos. at stater and you have a ext. sol. like ford likes to use that your loss could be in the sol. contact as well. And under cranking mode your batt should drop to no less that 9.6 volts under load and thats tested at batt post.

Installed new baterry and new alternator...battery or alternator dies in one day


the alternator will not die in one day unless there is a direct short causing diode or coil winding failure which would give signs of smell, melted wires. Disconnect battery and give full charge. what year is this? while vehicle is running you should be able to briefly disconnect positive battery post connection and vehicle will still run if alternator is good. For a new battery to die in one day, one of two things i think has happened. Either the batt is faulty from supplier,( not likely but i have seen it ) or there is a direct draw or grounding taking place whether its direct in the starter selonoid or a direct draw through accessories. Are you sure all switches are off ? Push switches (on interior lights) nothing like dome lights,delayed lights are staying on! Does vehicle start hard like it almost needs a jump. If it has to be (and it takes time). to find out what is drawing the power ( i am old school) disconnect positive power source on batt. 2) disconnect ignition power source on starter. 3) connect pos batt wire to starter, 4) touch positive cable to positive batt post and look for spark or contact. if this reacts then selonoid or starter motor is shorted drawing the current. Or if you have volt meter and know how to use it, this is good to. If checks good then hook ignition connection back on starter.(disconnect pos terminal on batt prior to re-connect) I think the battery is having the life sucked out of it by a short in the system ( A DRAW ) this could be a quick find or fix or this could take days to track down. alot of variables here to try to explain. but i would seek into the starter first as usually this drains the battery quickly .

On cold mornings, car won't start the first 2 tries, open the hood and slam the hood and the car starts. please help.


YOU EITHER NEED AN AUTOMATIC HOOD SLAMMER, OR CLEAN THE BATTERY TERMINALS, REMOVE NEG. CABLE FIRST, THEN THE POS. CABLE CLEAN BOTH CABLES & BOTH BATTERY TERMINALS BRIGHT & SHINNY. PUT POS. ON BATTERY & TIGHTEN. LAST THING PUT NEG. CABLE ON & TIGHTEN. IF THE PROBLEM STILL EXISTS, HOLD THE IGNITION SWITCH IN START POSITION, HAVE SOMEONE TAP ON THE METAL PART OF THE STARTER WITH A MEDIUM SIZE HAMMER. IF THAT MAKES THE STARTER REACT, THE STARTER IS PROBABLY BAD.

Seems like a short when I hook up neg. batt. cable.


Starter power wire could be grounding out causing it to lock the starter in even if the engine is running, as well as making the cable arc at the battery. I would first trace the wire from the battery to the starter and make sure it isn't grounding somewhere. If it isn't it could be the starter going bad internally. My guess would be the wiring, especially where it bolts to the starter.
