1999 yamaha g16e golf cart,worked fine for afew months then one day it didnt move,headlights are bright but it wont move.Any ideas as to the problem ?


If you trace the large red wire back, is there a broken terminal on the battery pos post. As its red, this wire will most likely be a power wire. The click is the solenoid operating, but it not switching the large load. Look at the battery.

I keep going through new starters. They work ok


sounds like a bad starter soloniod or a bad ignition switch .. most likely the solonoid if it hasnt been changed ... below is what it looks like and a couple places it can be purchased ... usually the contacts inside the solonoid wear to the point they just barely make contact .. sometimes they dont anymore ... on some solonoids you could just take it apart and rotate the contact so that unused contact area is now seen by the contactor ... .. the contacts are part of the bolts where power is connected ... a new solonoid isnt expensive so is probably the best bet ... if the contacts are worn then you will hear a click when you turn on the starter ...if yoiu dont hear a click then there could be an open coil in the solonoid or maybe a bad ignition/starter switch that operates that solonoid coil ... there are ways of junping the solonoid main contacts .. in this case the starter will run but not engage (you will get sparks) .. at least it checks the starter ... the other way is to provide power to the solonoid coil .. this should cause it to operate and engage the starter (make sure car is in park) .. if that works then suspect the ignition switch .. if it doesnt work or works once in a while then change the solonoid ...

Big red honda 300cc 4 wheeler. Starter solonoid just clicks. Battery fully charged. solonoid has 2 wires from battery and a long double wire sealed into the solonoid. Question: How do you replace the...


if you can pull the rubber cover off the solenoid you will see two nuts that are the cable terminals, short across these with a screwdriver or similar(may make a spark) if this causes the starter to turn you probably need a solenoid. You could also try a multi meter or test light on the terminal to the starter, it should have power when you press the start button, if not , new solenoid. to change it disconnect the battery , undo the two cable nuts, and follow the other wire back to its connecter

I have Ford Ranger Supercab 2001. The 4wd does not engage.. clicking sounds from under the dash board. Please help :)


When you turn the dial to 4 wheel drive it controls a solonoid unit that then controls the electric motor that shifts the trasfer case to 4X4. The clicking sound that you are hearing is probobly the solonoid unit (4x4 control unit) engaging or trying to engage the trasfer case motor. From what I,ve heard the solonoid unit is located behind the plastic panel that is under the glove box and before the passenger side door. Moisture can build up in that area and ruin the solinoid unit over time. Check any fuses that have any thing to do with the 4x4. If the solonoid unit or fuses is not the problem, I would check the wireing to the electric transfer case motor and the motor itself. Good luck and God bless!

Put in a new starter and all you get is a clicking sound and wont start why wont it start what did i do wrong


Providing the battery is fully charged, and the cables are tight and clean, you may have the wires on wrong. They may be grounding against the block, or on backwards. If that all checks out, maybe you got a dud starter.

Car wont start


On all the older ford made products, there was a solonoid on the fender that made the clicking noise. It was about $20.00. On the 95 T/C, they have the same type starter Chevy and other cars have. It has the solonoid on the starter. It looks like you are going to have to replace the starter. It is closer to $200.00. Wish I had better news.

Why does the landrover keep stopping


Check if the injector pump solonoid is working then , with the ignition on , disconnect the power feed wire on the solonoid situated on top of the injector pump and listen for a clicking sound when you put it back.If it isn't clicking , check if there is power on the wire with a test light.If there is power then your solonoid is faulty.
