Check battery voltage.(12 to 13 volts)
Check voltage while attempting to crank engine.
put on charger or try to jump start with another battery or vehicle.
Alot of batteries loose there capacty to hold or deliver a charge over the winter.

05 dodge 1500 won't turn over


If the engine isn't turning over, how can you be sure the starter is engaging? If you're just hearing a click, the starter solenoid is probably working, but may not be completing the circuit through the electrical contacts in the solenoid which activate the starter.
If the starter is actually engaging, and if the battery has proper power, but the engine is not turning over, you have a locked up engine - mechanical issues (or hydraulic lock if there is fluid in one or more combustion chamber). Try turning the engine with a socket and breaker bar on the front crankshaft pulley.

Why does my starter engage for only a second, then spin freely after that. it was removed and tested at Autozone and passed. The starter stayed engaged during the test when no load was encountered.


Hi Anonymous

What I believe you've said is that you turn the key to start, the engine turns over for a second, then you just hear the starter spinning but no engine turn over. Yes?

Then you took it to Autozone and tested it and it stayed engaged during the test. The differences, possible or real here, are the load on the starter gear end, and the electricity driving it.

There are a couple things happening in the start cycle. The motor starts spinning and the solenoid pushes the spinning gear forward to engage the toothed edge of the flywheel. If the solenoid doesn't push enough, the gear won't engage. So, one thought is that there's an issue with the solenoid - it may push the gear out just fine, but lack power to keep it pressed forward if there is back-force from the engine.

If you have a poor connection to the battery, the solenoid may not draw the current to keep the gear engaged. Checking the hot (red) wire both at the battery and where it attaches to the starter is the primary diagnostic there. Even if the battery has a good charge, the current draw if starting is the heaviest load it encounters in a typical day of driving, so the ability of the battery to dump that charge quickly in a pulse of high current is also important, and non-corroded, tightly connected wires help.

The starter gear also has a clutch in it - akin to the freewheel on the rear of a bike, or a ratchet. This lets the gear spin faster than the starter motor once the engine catches, so that the engine doesn't essentially grab the engaged starter motor and spin it waaay too fast. letting back on the key lets the fast spinning gear disengage without trouble. If there is an issue with that clutch/ratchet, that might also be allowing the gear to spin without it actually pushing - like the clicker in a ratchet sticking so that it'll spin either way.

After that.... there is likely both a relay and a fuse for the starter. Not a bad idea to check that neither is blown, or, in the case of the relay, looking sort of browned and cooked.

Hope this helps!

The problem is the starter motor vauxhall zafira 2.2 petrol the engine will turn over but its making a sort of wining noice as if its not teeth r not conecting to start engine over also smells of a burning...


I am not that familiar with vauxhall but starters are pretty universal it sounds as if starter is not engaging flywheel all the way either because of aexterior shimming problem during assembly or if this is something new without anyone disturbing original starter it could be solenoid that engages starter pinion to flywheel getting worn out and not engaging all the way or I have even seen where the teeth were not exacly the same angle or even count on a new exact fit oem replacement starter all of which could cause your symptoms

7.3 diesel cranking over more than my v-10 is that normal


Yes, it IS normal for a powerstroke diesel to require more revolutions of the motor to fire than for any gasoline engine. Combustion in gasoline engines is stimulated by spark plugs and many gasoline engines will start with little turning of the motor past the position where the ignition timing creates the spark and combustion occurs. Combustion forces the engine to continue rotating and combustion in that and other cylinders becomes a perpetual event. A Powerstroke Diesel engine requires more revolutions and speed of revolutions to create the heat necessary to cause the diesel/air mixture to combust. ALSO, the diesel is injected into the combustion chamber, at high pressure, by the injectors. The injectors are electronically controlled and the Fuel Control Module (computer) (also known as the Injector Control Module or ICM) tells each injector exactly when to open and inject diesel into the combustion chamber, as well as for how many milliseconds it stays open (how much fuel will be delivered). Summary, a powerstroke diesel will only begin the perpetual combustion process when the motor is turning fast enough and the pistons are compressing the volume of the cylinder into the tight space of the combustion chamber rapidly enough to create enough heat for the fuel to ignite and begin creating power to turn the motor without the aid of the starter. IN ADDITION, a Powerstroke will NOT start at all with weak batteries. Not only does the motor need to revolve rapidly in order to start, the injectors require a MINIMUM voltage of MORE THAN 12 volts in order to activate (open). The exact amount of voltage required can be different, depending on the Fuel Control Module (FCM) or "Injector Control Module" (ICM) type that is installed. (Note; terminology for the FCM / ICM tend to depend on who you are talking to, what resource you are reading, etc. They are the same thing.) If batteries are weak, the starter uses enough amps to drag the voltage down and, even though the starter turns the motor fast enough that any gasoline motor would fire right up, the ICM will never send the signal to the injectors for them to activate so, the cylinders never get any fuel and the motor never fires. I hope that helps. Yes, a 7.3L diesel will normally need to turn with the starter for longer than your gasoline fueled V10.

Starter motor turns but wont engage


A lot of times and on most vehicles, when the Starter turns over but will not engage, that means the Bendix inside the starter is not pushing the starter gear out to engage in starting your engine. Best solution would be to just simply replace the starter. Sometimes you can have the starter rebuilt, but in most cases the fasted and simplest way is to replace it. Hope this helps

My 92 saab 9000 wont start. it makes a spinning sound sort of like a hairdryer. the battery is fine and i get the oil changed every 3000 miles and all the other fluids regularly checked. so what could it...


Either the timing belt/chain/gears has failed, which can really change the sound of cranking, but the engine visibly goes around.

If the engine does not turn (as it sounds is the case with your car), but the starter spins fast enough to be described as sounding like a hairdryer, then the starter drive is bad and the starter will need to be replaced or rebuilt.

The starter drive is turned by the starter motor, and the drive in turn turns the gear that engages the flywheel of the engine. The part that turns that gear will not let the starter motor be pushed by the engine — it has a one-way, overrunning clutch in it. If the engine got a chance to spin the starter, the starer would simply explode. It is maybe 10 or 15 to one between the engine. One good start using the gas pedal would spin the starter like 15 to 25 thousand RPM...

If that overrunning clutch fails the starter motor cannot spin the gear that turns the engine.

If it is whining, the starter motor is turning. You possibly may have a broken starter drive. This is the little gear on the starter shaft. It's not too expensive and relatively easy to replace.

It sounds like your starter solenoid (relay) is failing. The clicking is a classic symptom. It's time to have it replaced.

A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion .In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.

The starter solenoid receives a large electric current from the car battery and a small electric current from the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is turned on, a small electric current is sent to the starter solenoid. This causes the starter solenoid to close a pair of heavy contacts, thus relaying a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. The starter motor is an electric motor that initiates piston motion in a car's internal combustion engine before it can power itself.

My Kawasaki Z 750 (2005) won't start. Starter


If the Tach is showing some RPMs then it must be turning the motor over, if the bike is just coming out of storage it may be gummed up in the fuel system. try turning the fuel petcock off and then on a couple of times. try to start the bike. Failing that, you may have to drain the fuel and replace it with new fuel.
if neither of these work you may have to consult a local mechanic for a spark test and fuel test.

Starter makes weird noise dosent turn over


Starter drive not engaging fully . Sticky or worn, but don't think changing thermostat had anything to do with it. Try having starter drive inspected & lubed if possible , but you may end up with new starter.
