Yes, there should be a second power wire that runs from the positive terminal post down to the starter itself. You might also have a Starter Relay, which means that from the positive terminal post of the battery it runs to a relay usually connected to the fender well that then has a wire that runs down to the starter.

There can be a starter lock-out which requires your to foot press the clutch or the brake pedal. But without lights you have a different problem.

Check your fuse block for power. There is a Master link somewhere under the hood and they usually put them close to the Positive side of the battery. The Master link is like a fuse only in wire form. You will also find a heavy wire that supplies power to the fuse block. Often the fusible link and the feed wire to the fuse block are the same wires.

Your Alternator, battery, etc. will test good all day long, but you need power in the fuse block.

Turn the Ignition to ACC and notice if the radio has power or turn the key to run and notice if the Brake lights work when you press the brakes.

If you have power there, then troubleshoot the wire to the starter relay. Most likely when you turn the ignition key(start) you will not have power going to the starter relay like you should. You can also test the coil Positive wire with the key in RUN position.
It should have power.

That's all I have for you.

Just did a motor job, charged battery, car starts and runs fine, until battery dies, put two different alternators in it, still same problem,fusible links have resistance to, any ideas?


problem could be the positive battery bad need replacing also negative battery cable if both are old, make sure the small positive red 10 gauge wire that part of the positive battery cable is crimp have tight connection that wires run directly to starter fuse link.make sure you have the right amp alternator and check alternator fuse.

The first thing you need to do is stop wasting your money by replacing parts. Then get a volt-ohm meter and a test light to test the circuits between the battery, the alternator, the ignition switch, the starter relay and the voltage regulator. (a.k.a. Charging System Circuits)

To start, the "B+" or "BATT" terminal on the alternator (large black wire) MUST have a solid, direct connection to the battery. Check for the proper voltage here. Then, the red wire on the alternator at the "F2" terminal should be HOT at all times. If not, you probably still have a bad fuse link that you missed. The "F1" terminal on the alternator (Light Green wire) is known as your "FIELD" wire. It comes from the "IG" terminal at the voltage regulator. It should be hot any time the key is in the ON position. If not, your voltage regulator is not working or your ignition switch is not providing power to the regulator. Finally, The "F" terminal (Red wire) at the regulator should be hot any time the ignition switch is in the ON position. This actually gets it's power from the starter relay, which gets its power from the ignition switch.

Is the ground for the engine and the battery clean and working properly check at point of connection with test light to see if all grounds are OK and make sure no positive cable are bare and touching metal causing a ground fault and blowing fuse . check wires at battery and going to starter some times wires will burn through and touch other wires or metal causing a direct ground. good luck

No crank, no start. Battery just replaced, connections good. Engine repalced.


Check if you get power from ignition switch to starter solenoid, direct on top of the starter motor, if not, try to link the starter solenoid with a direct wire from battery plus. if you connect the solenoid with a wire, it need to pull the starter in and switch the starter on. if that work, check wiring from solenoid to ignition switch. if that doesn't work, remove the starter and check them out side the car or have them checked from a specialist. if wracked, replace the starter motor.

Car doesnt start at all !


check battery
check fuses & wiring to starter
check power at starter main (big red wire)
check for power at starter solenoid (small) wire when key turned start position
if all above are good, try whacking starter body with a hammer lightly while trying to start, don't run yourself over if it does!
replace starter if all electrical good

if all electrical fail test/inspection, ei; no power to starter on small wire, yet big wire hot, check for bad ignition switch

I'm not familiar with your type of vehicle, but:-

Look for a 'fusible wire link' that may be down near the starter motor battry power connection cable. If fused, it will be melted.

Most vehicles hase either a fusible link or a high power fuse in between the battery output and the main vehicle distribution power bus.
