SOURCE: solenoid just clicks and starter doesn't engage

Does your starter have a good ground now after the paint job??? If you jump from the battery to the starter side of the solenoid, do you get any results?

If you have good power and the starter is known good, your solenoid could be faulty.

Thanks for your question at FixYa.com

I have an 03 FLSTC, same issue. Went through four starters before 70k miles. Problem solved when I had both the gear reduction and compression releases installed. Have 40k miles on my fifth starter and no problems.

SOURCE: 84 FXST Starter Kicks out before engine fires

I'd be willing to bet that it's not "kicking out". The tale tell sign is that the starter keeps running. As long as the plunger in the solenoid is pulled inward,which moves the starter drive into engagement with the ring gear on the outer clutch drum, the start will run. If the starter drive were being "kicked out" the solenoid wouldn't still be engaged and the starter would not continue running.

I would come closer to thinking that your starter drive is bad, the bendix. These things are notorious for going bad, especially the cheap Chinese made aftermarket ones. I've replaced them with only a few weeks use on them. If you buy a new drive, get an Accel, made in the U.S.A.. Simply pull the starter drive out and clamp the shaft in a vice with aluminum jaws on it. The little nut on the end has left handed threads. When you put the nut back on, put some Red Loctite #271 on it. This ought to solve your problem. If you have anymore questions, drop me a line directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net Good Luck!

Starter just makes a whineing sound wont engage


Sounds like the solenoid on starter is bad. A solenoid kicks the gear out to meet flywheel, If its bad the starter will spin and not engage. God-Bless!

Turn key get nothing jump starter and sylenoid just spins


i cant dope out that symptoms.

does it crank or not. be clear there.

no car starts (but my 6sp) if it dont crank.

on A/T cars cranking is a first thing. so does it.?

Solenoids do not spin, the stroke only , it a linear motion.

the Sol. moves the pinion and the main contactor switch only.



my guess is the Starter spins and the crank don\'t spin,

you hear the starter motor spin up, it sings. like bird.

that means the starter /solenoid are bad. (crude)

if the battery is good and or jumper starting off a running car.



It can just be a dirty starter pinion, clean it , repeat.

fixed many for this. i have.



battery cable lugs clean, and good. no green rust.

bad cable usually just make a loud THUNK sound. no spin.

I just jump started a buddies car and now my car wont start 2006 mazda 3 the starter is spinning but not engaing the engine to turn over


Not because of jumping another car though. Starters have a bendix that engages the flywheel and if the starter is spinning, the solenoid is not engaging the bendix. Check and replace.

Starter spins but will not engage


this could be a few problems that cause this,

1. your battery could be weak and not have enough juice to engage the starter solenoid

2. the bendix could be messed up

3. this is probaly the most common problem, the starter solenoid went out

the best course of action would be to have your battery load tested, and if its fine, replace the starter

Installed new starter, and it won't engage, just spins up. I inherated the car, it had a new engine and clutch installed in 2009, and it has been a on going problem. thanks db.


If it just spins when you turn the key, either the Bendix gear is not kicking out the starter gear, or the flywheel/flexplate hs broken or missing teeth. Was the old starter 'shimmed'? If so, did you put the same number of shims back in when you installed the new one? It is possible your starter, even though it is new, is not working properly-rebuilt units can be defective out of the box.
