Could be any number of things. does the engine crank when you turn the key? If it does, your battery and startermotor is probably fine. If your car has an immobilizer it could be playing up to. Make sure that the immobilizer light is not on if you have one. It could also be a blocked fuel line. Try checking that the engine is feed fuel.

I guess that your car is fuelejected. If it is it could be any number af sensors. If you have a engine management light on your dash you can get a garage to read out the fault code. That will l give you an idear of what is wrong.

Why do we not have power from ignition switch to starter?

More then likely the ignition switch doesn't supply power to the starter , directly . Most vehicles have a starter relay , the ignition switch is a low voltage input to a BCM - body control module or to the control side of the relay . It depends on the year , make an model vehicle as to how it works ! Older vehicles the ignition switch supplied power to the starter through the park neutral switch , won't let vehicle start if not in park or neutral .

Engine will not start, starter checked good, cleanded battery conections. still will not start

It is impossible to propose a diagnosis of your issue without knowing the YEAR, MAKE, and MODEL of your vehicle. Additionally, "car will not start" is not a sufficient description of the issue to give any real guidance.
IF you mean that the starter is turning but the engine will not run, that has nothing to do with the starter. You will need to have the stored codes read out of the ECU as a starting point, and proceed with a standard diagnostic of your engine.
IF you mean that you have tested and replaced the starter and checked the wires but the starter does not TURN, suspect a bad starter solenoid or a bad starter circuit relay or ignition switch. If the starter will not engage at all, suspect a fault with your vehicle security system, starter circuit relay, or ignition switch.

I have a 87 f150 4x4 wont start with the key has new starter,solonoid switch and new ignition switch but it starts fine when I jump the solonoid

If you are saying that the vehicle will turn over only when jump started and nothing when not connected to another vehicle then I would check the earth connection from battery!

2005 Pontiac Grand Am 3.4litre V6 sometimes starts hard after warm. It will go into excessive crank and seemingly a continued starter engagement when key is released. It has never failed to start?...

Hello Michael,

Typically PCM's are rather robust components that are not as prone to failure as sensors are. Some automotive electronic components can fail under heat stress and work fine after they have cooled an ignition control module.

As you are experiencing your problem while engaging the ignition switch (which you described as sometimes hanging up) I would start your trouble shooting with the ignition switch itself.

  • Ignition starter switch directs current from the fuse panel to other systems in the vehicle
  • When not replaced, vehicle may experience no-start, intermittent shut down and/or current will not flow to all systems.
Your vehicle also has steering column lock actuator you will have to deal with when removing the ignition switch for replacement which is rated as "easy"

Change starter wire on 92 eldorado

A starter motor problem won't cause the car to stop, You need to make sure that the earth leads from the battery to the body and to the motor are tight and that the surface they bolt to is clean, there could also be an issue with the electrical switch on the back of your ignition.

Won;t crank

Hi, if the car engine fails to crank, there is a fault in one of the components in the battery/ignition/starter circuit. Low battery (Check battery voltage, recharge if low, or jump start with another vehicle or battery charger). Bad starter relay/solenoid (Check for voltage at relay, if relay has voltage but there is no "click" when key is turned to start, replace relay). Bad ignition switch (Check to see if voltage reaches starter relay/solenoid when turn to start. If not, check for open P/N switch and brake or clutch pedal switch. Replace ignition switch if defective).

Replaced starter still not starting cleaned ground under battery please help

Depending on what vehicle you have, verify that your starter is getting 12 volts when the key is turned to Start. If no voltage is present, you may have a bad Starter Relay, Starter Solenoid, Ignition Switch, or Clutch Safety Switch.

  1. Check that your starter is getting 12 volts when the key is turned to Start.
  2. Check the Starter Relay to see if it clicks.
  3. Check the Ignition Switch for Continuity.
  4. Check the Clutch Safety Switch for Continuity.

My starter continues to run once the truck starts. Have replaced starter and selonoid already

Sounds like the ignition switch is hung in the start position, that would keep the starter spinning even after you release the switch. I would consider replacing the ignition switch. Look over on youtube for a how-to video. On a vehicle that old most likely not too difficult.
