Replaced clutch on 2005 ranger ,now truck wont turn over and can't link to pcm

There's probably a switch that requires the clutch to be depressed before voltage is applied to the starter. It may need adjusting after the clutch replacement or even disconnected.

I put a starer and she still wont start all i get is a 'click' sound

Step 1:

First check the starter relay fuse. Replace it even if the fuse looks good.

Step 2:

If you are sure the fuse is not the problem then ensure that the battery if fully charged and is working properly. Turn on the interior light then turn on the headlights. The interior light should dim momentarily then go bright again. If it stays dim check and charge the battery.

Step 3:

If the battery is not the problem, check if the battery is grounded properly. The ground wire is connected to the negative terminal of the battery. Make sure it has a good connection to the engine block, i.e. there must be no rust, no paint and it must be fastened tightly. Also ensure that all heavy connections are tight and secure, as any looseness will cause the clicking sound.

Step 4:

If it still does not start, jump the starter's two heavy solenoid terminals with a screwdriver. FOR YOUR SAFETY THE CAR MUST BE IN NEUTRAL OR PARK WHEN YOU DO THIS because the starter should jump and turn now! The ground is the problem if it turns.

Step 5:

If it still only clicks the solenoid may be faulty. Replace this if you did not get a new solenoid with the starter.

Step 6:

If the solenoid is new then check the neutral safety switch located on the transmission. To find the switch follow the cable from the shifter to the transmission. A faulty switch will prevent the engine from starting.

Step 7:

If all these steps fail you will have to ask a professional to resolve this problem because specialized equipment will be required for perform further diagnostic tests.

II could get it to start by fanangling the battery so i replaced the wire now it wont start at all

I'm assuming you mean the starer would not turn over the motor and you have tried to jump it, replace the battery and the cable. If this is correct, I would take the starter down to the local parts store for a test.

If you mean it the starter turns the engine but it will not start, begin by checking for fuel and spark.

Hope this helps.

The car sat for 2 months the battery died install a new one i get power but wont turn over its a 2003 mini cooper s could the starer freeze up

A starter freeze-up would probably give forth much smoke from the wiring and the starter motor itself. You need a test light or meter to check for power at the starer solenoid. Check from ground (engine block) to the terminal that connects to the positive battery cable (should light). If nothing, check the battery terminals for corrosion (use a special battery cleaning brush from your auto parts store --cheap) and check the cables near the terminals for excess wire corrosion. Recheck for power at the solenoid again--it should now give light (meter read 12.6 volts). Try the starter again--if only hear a 'click', test at the starter motor terminal for power when the key is turned. If you get light, then the starter motor is defective (likely a bad brush or spring) and should be removed for repair or replacement. If you got no power at the starter terminal, then replace the solenoid. Hope this helps!

When you turn the key, get a clicking noise and no engine cranking, the clicking noise is normally the solenoid. The solenoid is a heavy duty relay that applies 12 volts to the starter. In most cases the solenoid is mounted physically on the starter. If you got a remote starter at the auto parts store you can
hook it up to the solenoid directly and push a button on the remote starer , (which takes the place of the ignition switch) and see if the engine cranks

Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh
