SOURCE: looking for wiring schematics for

the coil receives power all the time with key on, the ground side is toggled to make the coil spark, you shouldn't be able to detect ground unless its running and if you do ground it while running you will find it will die. the pickup coil, and ignition module in the distributor control the spark, and injector pulse, if it won't spark, and its the origional distributor, I usually just replace the whole thing with a reman from carquest, napa, etc, usually 100 to 150 with exchange, its cheaper than replacing the separate parts, and all new you can't go wrong. this is a common problem with any mid 90's gm v8

SOURCE: my engine wont turn over but lights work. new:

Yes it is your problem starter isn't engaging however you will need to have it replaced.Properly jack up car have two axle stands properly support the car with those in position.Disconnected the battery before attempting to start removal of starter.Now located the starter beside your oil pan with the positive battery terminal going to it and disconnect it along with the other solenoid wire.Now remove both starter housing bolts and pull out your starter.Be sure to make sure all wires and bolts are tight when you reinstall your used or manufactured starter from your choice of purchase.Merry Christmas.John

My BMW 528i won't start. The starter does not turn the engine. Can't hear any noise from the starter trying to work. No solenoid noise.

You may need to replace the starter . Check the wiring on the back of the starter to see if everything is working good. trace the wire back up to the solenoid. If your battery reads 13 volts or more then it will probably be your starter. I have had to replace starters before. they have always been the culprit after checking the wiring , alternator and battery .

95 Pontiac Grand Am GT V6 just died wont start? starter is good, dont know if alternator or what?

If the engine will not crank, and the battery is fully charged, the only thing in play is the starter circuit. The ignition and alternator do not get involved until after the engine is started.
If the engine died and will not crank, you would need to check for voltage at the starter with the key switch in the start position.
You may need a manual with wiring diagrams to trace the circuits.

Engine will turn over.Battery Seems fine.Dash lights up as usual. What must I try know?

If the engine does NOT turn over than check the small purple wire at the starter for power with the key in the crank position. If there is power the most liklely problem is a bad starter. If there is not power than you will need to start tracing wires. I can get you more info on that if needed.

If the engine DOES turn over than you need to provide some more info. Does the vehicle have fuel pressure, will it start with a couple of shots of carb spray into the intake while cranking the engine over? Do you have spark?

2003 dyna starter turns but wont engage, new battery fitted

Hi Anonymous, lift up rubber boot on positive cable to starter, unplug starter relay wire usually green, with a jumper wire connected to positive battery cable starter stud, touch blade connecter on starter where starter relay wire was removed. If starter engages and turns over engine then your starter relay is bad. If starter activates but does not engage then your starter drive/clutch is bad. Good luck

2006 Mazda 6 will not start

U must find out why the starter is not cranking to start the engine. Have you checked battery terminals for cleanliness and lack of corrosion? Starter terminal wire good and solid? Solenoid any good? Connections? Relay issue?

Try getting a schematic so you can trace it out and find source of anomaly.

1994 Camry wont turn or do anything for that matter

The red wire is the starter wire, this is the main wire that connects to your starter switch to tell the relay to turn over that starts your car, the other wires are the ingnition wires, these wires is what allows the vehicle to turn on (lights, radio, engine,)
What it sounds like he did when he removed the alarm module was disconnect the power wire that supplys the starter switch.
Try tracing the wire back to where it is connected and see if there is any wire cut the same way as the other end.
try connecting a a remote starter switch from the battery directly to the starter solenoid. this will allow you to see if the wiring inside the car is disconnected or if it is the starter.

I have a 95 eclipse n/a that wont start. it was running perfect, amazing actually, and then all the sudden wouldnt start. all lights and radio come on in the car(battery is fine, tried jumping it just in...

If the starter isn't turning it is not an o2 sensor. You need to make sure you are getting power to the starter, use a test light and a voltmeter check and make sure you are getting 12 volts to the starter if you are getting 12 volts from the battery to the starter check and make sure you are getting 12 volts from the ignition switch which will be the smaller wire. If you are getting 12 volts through that wire then the starter is bad. If you are not getting 12 volts or any volts you need to make sure the fuse and relay for the starter are good then check and make sure you have power coming out of the ignition switch going to the starter you will need an electrical schematic for the car to trace the wires to find the correct one.

Car wont start

The starter solenoid is not getting power from the ignition switch to activate the starter. To repair, you will need to get a schematic and trace the wires out. It could be as simple as a blown fuse or as complicated as a bad ignition switch.
