My 2000 ford f150 won;t start .i replaced the neutral safety switch, it started fine for a while but wont start now. i have to bump start.is there a relay in that circuit?


THERE IS A STARTER SOLENOID LOCATED UNDER THE HOOD ON THE RIGHT FENDER WELL. CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE BATTERY VOLTAGE ON THE LARGE RED WIRE ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE RELAY. IF SO USE A TEST LIGHT ON THE SMALL TERMINAL, YOU SHOULD HAVE POWER TO THIS WIRE WHEN HELD IN START POSITION HAVE SOMEONE HOLD THE KEY IN START WITH CLUTCH PEDAL DEPRESSED WHILE YOU CHECK FOR VOLTAGE AT THE RELAY WITH A TEST LIGHT. IF YOU HAVE POWER THEN THE SOLENOID IS BAD

Turn key on, but doesnt even click. battery and starter are fine


This may be due to a bad neutral safety switch, is this car automatic or manual transmission?

If automatic try to start in neutral and if manual try to locate switch on clutch pedal and use a jumper wire to jump connector for switch, NOTE; If switch is jumped car will start in gear with pedal not pushed down and car will take off so this is just as a test not a repair!!!!!, good day

89 Camry won't start!


Check for power on the small wore at the starter with the key in the crank position. If there is power there and your sure the battery is good than the starter is bad. If there is no power work your way back to the neutral safety switch on the clutch pedal. There should be power in and out with the key in the crank position and the pedal fully depressed. Make sure there is not a balled up floor mat behind the clutch pedal. Couldn't tell you how many times I charged customers for a tow and an electrical check and removed there floor mat! If there is no power to the neutral safety switch than the problem may be a little more involved. I need to know if it has a four cylinder or v-6 That should give you a couple things to check in the mean time. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

88 s10 2.8 5 speed have power to lights, blower, radio, but wont turn over when turning key no clicking nothing wont even start or turn over by crossing solenoid


Since you have power to your accessories, here are a few more things to consider:
1: Automatic transmission not in park or the neutral safety switch is faulty
2: On manual transmissions clutch pedal not depressed or or clutch start switch failure
3: Broken or loose wires in the starting circuit. Inspect all wires and connectors at the battery, starter solenoid, and ignition switch
4: Starter motor pinion jammed in flywheel ring gear. Manual transmission. place transmission in gear and rock the vehicle to manually turn the engine. Remove starter and inspect pinion and flywheel

I have a 1993 chevy 3/4 ton 5 spd. I have power everywhere when you first turn the key. Radio, headlights, dome light ect.. When I push in the clutch an attempt to turn the key over Nothing happens, no...


Either clutch nuetral safety switch or antitheft system turning off starter.

Ive heard of people bypassing the clutch neutral safety switch. I beleive it is as simple as finding the button under the clutch pedal and snipping the two wires and twisting together

(¦n?·tr?l ?s?f·t? ?swich)

(electricity) An electric switch that is connected to the ignition switch of an internal combustion engine and prevents starting the engine unless the transmission shift lever is in the neutral or park position, or the clutch pedal is depressed.



Might try tilting the steering wheel up or down and starting in different positions, maybe loose wire in tilt.

My ford f150 wont start, battery is good, have a


On the firewall is the starter motor relay. There are 2 large battery sized cables to it, and 1 smaller ( 16 AWG ) wire that is orange or orange with a stripe ( forget the color, want to say white or tan ).

When you turn the key to the start position, check the smaller gauge wire for +12 V. The case should be ground. If you do not get +12 on the orange wire, try starting the truck in neutral ( apply the parking brake, chock the wheel, etc normal safety precautions ). Test for +12 V at the small wire. This is the output of the DTR ( Digital Transmission Range ) sensor or in common terms the Neutral switch. The start position on the ign switch runs through the DTR to the starter motor relay coil.
If you have a stick, the DTR is replaced by the Clutch Pedal Position Switch ( clutch must be pushed in to start ).
If you have power to this ( at the times the truck won't start ) next is to check the both battery cable ends to see if they are corroded and making intermittent contact ( not probable but possible ).

1996 mitsubishi eclipse doesn't start when turning the key. had the starter tested, it was good. all the dash lights come on like normal, but nothing happens. Battery is good and fully charged. Any ideas.


check for voltage at the small start wire on the starter when cranking the engine--you will need someone help. If there is no voltage you may have a bad neutral safety switch ,which is on the trany shifter.you have an automatic trans i assume.
If so try putting in neutral when cranking.

1988 Dodge Ram 150 318 V-8 Will not start. Battery good. Cables good.Starter is good. Put key in and Nothing. No clicks, nothing. Does this truck come with a spark igniter? Could this be the problem? Where...


Greetings!

Let's keep things simple to start with... Check the battery that it has sufficient charge. (I did say to keep it simple). Ensure the gear selector is in Park or Neutral if equipped with an automatic trans, or depress the clutch pedal if equipped with a manual trans.

Lastly, in keeping things simple... check all the fuses and fuse links (special fusible wire) that power is available to your vehicle's electrical system.

With a test light, check the starter relay with the key in start position is energising the starter relay... bypass the starter relay if no power is present. if the starter operates, you now know the problem is located within the start control circuit (from the key switch through the starter relay to ground via a neutral safety switch (auto) or clutch switch (Manual).

finding the fault should be quick with a circuit diagram.

Cheers, Jay

Wont turn over when key is turned


If you can turn the engine by hand, it has not locked. If it did, you would get an engagement noise from starter, but it would not turn. I'd look at the neutral safety switch (automatic) or clutch switch (stick vehicles) and ignition switch, starter relay (usually in the power distribution box near the battery) Also any related fuses for start system if in there.Likely you will find that no power is getting to the small wire on the starter solenoid.
