If I understand you question, you are wondering why you factory wiring isn't working? If that's the case check the Ignition switch, not cylinder, could be bad. If you were refeering to the jerry rigged, do you have the wire on the correct terminal? If so, check starter.

Did you use the same gauge wire? May be the wire gauge is not heavy enough to carry the current to turn engine over. Does starter make a clicking noise. Check battery voltage.

Installed brand new starter, battery fully charged, and still wont crank. It starts when I kick start it. 1988 nissan pathfinder. What else could be the problem? Relay switch? Or ignition? Please help


Check the ignition switch, and the wiring to the starter solenoid. Get someone to turn the key to the crank (start) position and check for voltage at the starter solinoid. Check the starter relay and all fuses.

I have a 1995 honda accord and it just wont start , When i turn the key over to start it just wont turn over , i change the fuel pump and the starter is good .. it sounds like its trying to start but...


The contacts in the starter motor solenoid are worn, the clicking that you can hear is the solenoid being pulled in, but not making contact to allow the main battery voltage/current from getting to the starter motor. Their are 2 things you can do to get you out of trouble.

Rock the car back and forward whilst in gear, stop and try again.

Tap the side of the starter motor cover with a piece of wood or soft hammer. This will wiggle the contacts and allow for starting.

These may get the car up and running, but ultimately the contacts will have to be replace.

If you can find the starter motor, the solenoid is the small round or triangle box on top or to the side f the starter motor, usually with two small wires going to it.

My truck wont start battery is brand new all gueges work when i turn the key but it wont crank?


If you look down where the starter is you will see al little round selinoid with to things sticking out that look like screws and have nuts and wires going to them. Take a good gauge wire and jump across them. If the starter does not kick in or spin over then your starter is bad. If it does kick over then there is a good chance that the ignition switch has gone bad.

Starting problems


Well its cranking so not the starter and its got the juice so not the battery maybe. Check to see if its got the correct voltage to kick it over. Could be a fuel problem replace plugs wires and fuel filter. Also check you oil level maybe its low and wont start bc its low. I think it has a oil level sensor that may prevent it from turning over.

sounds like the problem is your imobilizer faulty.Get a bit of wire and atach it to the positive conection on the battery.Then touch the small wire on the starter to see if the motor turns.If it does then your imobilizer is the fault.Good luck.

My car wont' start i think lead on starter may be disconnected where can I get a free online diagram


Tighten you connections, on the battery, and on the starter. Make sure all ground connections are secure, if you find any loose tighten them.

The clicking sound means no power to starter, or too much resistance in circuit (loose connections, "torn" wires, corroded connections) Clicking sounds could also be if you connected the starter wrong, but if it ran once it should run again. So, check all the wiring, make sure nothing is loose.


Starter wiring is rather simple :
Battery to Starter "Bat." terminal on solenoid from there solenoid has a wire going to the starter itself, and the starter grounds through mounting bolts to the engine.


PS - If your battery nodes/connections are dirty and corroded clean them, give them a good scrubbing and then reconnect securely.
