Connect that to your negative battery terminal, check to see if the earth strap from starter is intact also, if the cable is visualy worn, chaffed, broke the other half won't be far from it

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.

I cant remove the starter from my 1979 buick ninety-eight regency


If its a 98 model, its an Oldsmobile instead of a Buick.
You should be able to take the two main bolts out plus the small brace on the end of the starter (if equipped) then drop the starter down enough to take the wires off. The solenoid stays on the starter until you get it out of the car.
Which engine is it ?

I have a 2002 sunfire... and i have trouble turning it on. Once it startes it is stuck there because it will not turn at all. Once it is in this position the wipes wont work, the windows wont roll down,...


sounds like you need a new ignition, reason nothing works cause once it doese turn over n starts the car the tumbler is stick in the starting position jus not far enough to keep the starter engaged but far enough the it still trying to go trough the start process which cuts the power to everything else till the ignition returns to the on postion

did you try jus turning the ignition far enough to when the starter engages jus let go of it so the car doesnt start and see if everything else still doesnt work if it dont i belive its the igniton

also with out starting it or engaging the starter as in just turning the key on to get power does anything work?

Cant remove starter


this is actually a pretty common problem, i had the same issue on a pickup, i ended up cutting the wires and splicing in and extra 8 inches of wire to allow the starter to drop far enough to gain access the next time i needed to do a starter job on it. you can also wire in quick disconnects once you get to that point to make it easier on you. just make sure you make good, tight connections. you can get the ends you need at any parts store, i used male and female insulated spade connections on mine, havnt have any issues with it since an that was about 15 thousand miles ago. if i remeber right the quick disconnect kit was about 80 bucks and i was just to cheap to spend the money so i made my own. try looking at painless wiring's web site. as far as the main power lead goes dont cut it and try any splicing, if you need it to be longer just go buy a longer one, they arent to spendy. another option may be to remove the exhaust manifold above the starter to gain access or remove the tire and go in thru the wheel well to get to it. hope this helps

I have got the starter diconnected from my 2005 5.7 jeep gc but I cant get it out to replace it


1. Disconnect and isolate negative battery cable.
2. Raise and support vehicle.
3. Note: If equipped with 4WD and certain transmissions, a support bracket is used between front axle and side of transmission. Remove 2 support bracket bolts at transmission. Pry support bracket slightly to gain access to lower starter mounting bolt.
4. Remove two mounting bolts (2).
5. Move starter motor towards front of vehicle far enough for nose of starter pinion housing to clear housing. Always support starter motor (1) during this process, do not let starter motor hang from wire harness.
6. Tilt nose downwards and lower starter motor far enough to access and remove nut that secures battery positive cable wire harness connector eyelet to solenoid battery terminal stud. Do not let starter motor hang from wire harness.
7. Remove battery positive cable wire harness connector eyelet from solenoid battery terminal stud.
8. Disconnect battery positive cable wire harness connector from solenoid terminal connector receptacle.
9. Remove starter motor.

98 Durango will not turn over, replaced battery, battery cables, had started checked. Just get a clicking noise at starter like a dead battery. Will start some times.


Sounds like a bad connection. Clean all the connections first then if you have a clicking sound coming from the PDC (fuse box) on the drivers side under the hood then it sounds like you have a bad starter .
As the relay is clicking that means the ignition switch is good. Just insure that the relay is good. There is a spare in the PDC you can swap and check out so its the starter Starter/solenoid combo.take your volt meter and check battery volts while the starter is engaged, if you see very little change from the static voltage it's likely the starter bendix is being egaged into the ring gear but the high current side of the starter is not working, this is likely due to a dirty or worn commutator or worn brushes in the starter motor. If you do see a larger drop in voltage( say down to under 9.5volts) you more than likely have a current flow issue, possibly a weak cell in the battery, or a shorted starter motor winding.My best recomendation would be to remove the starter motor, and the battery, take them in with you to your local parts house and have them both tested, most parts stores will perform these tests for free, on the possibility that hey can sell you something.
STARTER MOTORREMOVAL:-1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.2. Raise and support the vehicle.3. Remove the nut and lock washer securing the starter motor to the mounting stud on the transmission torque converter housing Starter Motor Remove/Install4. While supporting the starter motor with one hand, use the other hand to remove the upper mounting screw from the starter motor.5. Slide the automatic transmission cooler tube bracket forward on the tubes far enough for the starter motor mounting flange to be removed from the lower mounting stud.6. Move the starter motor towards the front of the vehicle far enough for the nose of the starter pinion housing to clear the transmission torque converter housing. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.7. Tilt the nose downwards and lower the starter motor far enough to access and remove the nut that secures the battery positive cable connector eyelet to the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.8. Remove the battery positive cable connector eyelet from the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.9. Disconnect the battery positive cable wire harness connector from the solenoid terminal connector receptacle. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.10.Remove the starter motor from the engine compartment. --This will help.

02 vw euro, 60k miles, intermitent no power to ignition switch. This symptom has only occured 6 or 8 times. Turn key...lights come on, no noise, no click, no crank, nothing....first occured. 2 months...


Sounds like it may be related to the 'neutral safety switch'. When you turn the key to start the engine, current goes from the ignition switch through the neutral safety switch to the starter relay, then on to the starter. Some cars have a shift linkage adjustment to make sure the trans is fully into park; mal-adjustment could cause what you describe. Anyway, start diagnosis at neutral switch and proceed to starter relay. Don't forget to check starter power feed wiring for loose/corroded connections. I've seen many cars exhibit this condition after being driven in heavy rain, etc., and in most cases, the battery wire on the starter, or the ignition trigger connection had become corroded enough that contact was lost, sometimes intermittently. It is important when checking these to actually disconnect these wires and look for corrosion, etc. especially the spade terminal for the trigger wire(be sure to disconnect battery before using tools on the starter battery wire)
