If that is not the probelm/solution, im going to guess you had the engein and transmition out. you need to take them both back out then focus on the transmition. the center shaft that the tork converter sits on has another shaft in the center of it. grab it with a pair of vice grips and **** it till it comes loose. when its loose slowly turn it and push it in at the same time, when its right it will slide all the way in easy, which will allow the tork converter to drop back further, therfor taking the flywheel out of a bind and allowing the engien to turn over. **NOTE:** before doing all this first check to see if the engien will turn over by hand with the transmition attached, if it dose, then this is not your problem.

I had this problem with an old truck. It was not a problem with the starter, but with the motor. See if you can turn the motor over by hand; use a big socket wrench on the bolt holding the harmonic balancer onto the crankshaft. I had water in the cylinders which prevented the motor from turning. In the VERY unlikely event that this is the problem, you will be able to turn the motor backwards which will push the water out. Then it will turn over and start. If this is the problem, look for a blown head gasket (i.e. white smoke, water in the oil, oil in the water, etc.) This is an unlikely solution to your problem, but it might not be the starter.

What about your security system? It is a starter disable. If you remove starter relay and use jumper wire between terminals 30 and 87, the starter motor should crank. If you try that, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. If it cranks, the problem is on control side of relay, right side, in the diagram. Make sure battery has a full charge.

Wire diagram for starter on ford expidition xlt triton yr.2000


I am going to suggest 3 things. Check your starter interlock switch on the brake pedal lever. Often your brake lights will not work when the interlock switch is broken or out of place. This will prevent the starter from cranking over.

The next suggestion is a Web search using the vehicle you own with the term "starter wiring diagram" or variations of it. You can get Youtube videos or short clips which are more helpful than verbal text.

Third, I know that 1999 models had a defect on the wiring harness to the starter. Whether you had an early build date for the 2000 model or if a 1999 part was used for a repair, this may be a problem. Corrosion on the wire underneath the vehicle at the wire attachments to the starter was most common.

When you turn the ignition and it clicks but will not turn over and the lights still work what could it be


low battery, battery cables not making secure connection, battery terminals oxidized or needing cleaning/brushing .... failed starter .... tap the starter with a wrench, it can revive it :)

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus. My wife left the radio running with the ignition off for a short while. Now the car won't turn over, won't start, won't jump. There is one click when trying to s


The click you are hearing is most likely the start slenoid making contact, however you should short the large wires @ the solenoid to make certain the starter still doesn't run, if so try tapping the starter with a hammer to shift the comutator a litle and try to start. Even if it now starts the starter will continue to give you problems so the proper fix is change the starter

2000 Toyota Land Cruiser having on and off trouble starting, Similar to previous post. Had batery, alternator and starter tested on the vehicle and was told the starter was bad so I pulled the starter but...


Starter problems are very common on these V-8 engines, even though it may test good on the bench it doersn't mean it's going to work in the engine everytime since the becch test doesn't have the load of turning the engine, I would not trust this starter in this case because of all the work involved in removing it again.

This is gonna sound stupid but when you turn the key to the on position engine not running does the battery light come on? If not check the bulb in the dash as it acts as a fuseable link in the system.

1988 460 motorhome starting problem


When its hooked up, you should be able to put 12 volts on the little stud on the solenoid and it should start. One large stud will have 12 volts on it, so just jump it right there. Did you get the wires in the right place. The solenoid should have 1 large wire going down to the starter. Be sure the battery cables are clean and tight ( both ends) Check battery voltage when cranking, should go to 10-11 volts. Check voltage between negative terminal on battery and engine, should be ZERO when cranking. The solenoid has 2 large studs, make sure the battery positive wire and all the other wires are hooked to this stud, the other large stud should just have the wire going to the starter.

2000 ford windstar won't start


Most parts stores can bench test the starter. Also verify that when you turn the key on that there is a click in the relay cluster under the hood by the battery which would be the starter relay activating to power the starter solenoid. If you fail to hear this click then locate and swap the relay with one that does work like the headlamps. If again this fails to work, (assuming you bench tested the starter and it passed) you can try bypassing the relay with a paperclip after probing the contacts and finding a power in and a lead that is not grounded by using the ohm meter to probe it to the battery ground. If you feel comfortable to try this and it cranks and starts or at least cranks, then suspect the neutral safety switch. This is possibly located on the transmission or the steering column at the gear shift selector. This switch only allows the vehicle to be started in park or neutral with an automatic. I doubt its a manual, but if so then check the clutch switch at the top of the clutch, just put a paper clip in its connector and try starting the van while out of gear. But in cases like this if the starter passes a bench test then usually the neutral switch or starter relay has failed.
