What am i missing? no power to starter selenoid.


is the immobilizer off ? any other device that stops power to start or run the engine. modifications alarm upgrades etc these can all stop the power to the starter. even ecu being switched off as ecu has a shunt so it can handle the power drain when engine is being started.

2011 ford focus 1.8 clicking noise when start engine


Could be several problems - check the battery terminals to make sure they are clean. Next check the battery to see if it is fully charged. If both those items checked are OK then the next step is to check the starter.

Now the starter has a selenoid which engages and provides power to the starter motor when you turn the key to the start position.

If you only get a clicking noise then it could be the selenoid valve itself or the starter motor.. Some fords have the selenoid mounted on the firewall others are mounted on the starter motor itself.

So what you need to do next is bypass the selenoid valve and provide power directly to the starter - if the starter turns the engine over then the selenoid valve is the problem. If the starter motor doesn't turn the engine over then it's the starter motor and a replacement is necessary.

Hope this info helps.

Fully charged batter and it just clicks


Take the battery somewhere to have it checked. Just because it is charged does not mean that it is good enough to start the generator. If the battery is good, then the starter selenoid might be bad.

No power when turning key


Battery is bad. Rapid clicking of starter selenoid is because battery does not have enough to hold spring down in selenoid when it sees the starter load. Battery only has a surface charge (nothing of power). Try a new battery or a jump. Should have lights first, then horn, then starter. If no lights, check all fuses.

My 2006 BMW 5 series fails to start. Lights and gauges come on, but not even a click when turn key. tried both keys. checked battery. 4 days later tried ignition and car operated normally, starting,...


If you can catch it failing again, test for power on the small wire going to the starter solenoid while someone tries to crank it. If you have no power, check for power at starter relay and trace backwards. If you have power, you have a bad starter. They can have intermittent failures. Hopefully your starter is easy to access, some 3 series and 5 series have the starter mounted under the intake manifold and it is necessary to removed the maifold to replace or test the starter. Good luck, hope this helps.

2004 dodge dakota sometimes starter just clicks then after a couple times it will start .starter tested good battery is good


That sounds like a starter selenoid problem. The selenoid is what the key switch engages to supply power to the starter. I am not sure of the location but many are on the fender well under the hood. I hope that helps.

1997 chev. 3/4 ton 454. Starter works,then it doesn't. If I keep trying it,it then makes contact and starts. Its very sparatic


starter selenoid. you can replace the selenoid on the starter. it is what conects the power to the starter motor. when the selenoid gets wore out it takes a couple clicks to get good contact.

BMW 318i wont start engine


I would have the battery tested. When they get cold they get weak. Next I would look at the wires on the starter to see if their loose.
