Follow the wire from the starter and it will come to a fuse. Check the fuse. If it is good it looks like an "S" if part of it is missing then it is bad. If it was good check for voltage to the fuse while holding the starter button. If not there check the starter relay. It will have a heavy guage wire in and then out but it also has 2 smaller wires that attach to smaller screws check for voltage on one of these wires if it is there and nothing happens when you push the starter button then you have a bad starter relay or ground for the relay.

Why does my car not start ? Even if you try to jump it.


If the starter motor will not turn the engine over then you will need to track issues with the electrical connections to the starter solenoid, and connections between the solenoid and the starter motor. If there is no issue with the power supply to the starter motor then you may have a faulty starter solenoid or faulty starter motor.

One way or the other you are going to have to have a mechanic go over the car and investigate and locate the issue. There are no easy fixes or simple answers to what your particular no crank/ no start problem is.

Power comes on but engine does not turn over or try to start?


If you get a clicking sound, then it is either your starter solenoid or the battery is low. If you simply get nothing, then it is wiring. Use jumper cables and and jump from an external battery. Go "-" to frame and "+" to the battery side of the solenoid. Push the starter button. It should click and send power to the starter. If it doesn't click then the problem lies with the wiring between the solenoid and starter button, or the solenoid itself. If the solenoid did click but the motor didn't turn over, put your "+" jumper cable directly on the starter motor's external contact. If the motor turns over, your problem is your solenoid. If the starter motor refuses to turn over, then your problem is the starter motor.

STARTER MOTOR ENGAGING ALL THE TIME


I would suspect the ignition switch. Power has to be getting to the starter solenoid to activate it. See if you can disconnect the power going into the switch, If the problem stops,.... solved. If problem persists, look for loose wire that could be shorting at the solenoid.

How do I wire my 60 gal 3 hp IR commpressor? What size wire, what size breakers, and where on the motor do I attach my wires. Motor says 15 amp, 220 volt. Thanks, Clint


I would use a # 10 wire size with a 30 amp breaker. The motor should already wired to the pressure switch unless it has a mag starter. If no mag starter incoming power should go to pressure switch not motor. If unit has a mag starter incoming power should go to top of mag starter.

My mercedes 1997 c230 wont crank it has gud battery but it wont crank at all


There could be a couple of things going on here. First you could have a bad ground (or connection in general), which would result in no power being provided to the starter motor. The second possibility is that you have a faulty ignition switch. The third possibility is that you have a bad starter motor or starter motor solenoid.

I would start by having an assistant stick their head in the engine compartment while you try to start it. If you hear a click coming from the starter motor, which is at the rear of the engine, then it is getting power to engage the solenoid but the motor is not spinning. In this case you have a bad starter motor. If you hear nothing, you may have an electrical problem where no power is getting to the starter motor, or you have a bad solenoid.

To check to see if power is getting to the starter you need to check the continuity of the lines using a multimeter. You should be able to find the problem spot by doing this. Good luck

Power, but can not start


Try to quickly engage and disengage the starter motor by rotating the key all the way forward and back to ignition on only, and back again several times a second until the starter motor engages.

Sounds like the starter motor solenoid is sticking, maybe.

This happens on my 1997 Cadillac Deville sometimes on hot summer days or even in the winter.

I thought it was the security system, at first, but it is more likely a starter motor going bad.

Wiring a STARTER I A 87 SUBURBAN


I presume the two leads you mention are:-
a) very heavy main +12V power lead from the battery terminal with approx 3/8" eyelug terminal,
b) less heavy wire that connects battery power to main vehicle fusebox for power distrubution- this cable may incorporate a fusible link.
The two leads (as above) connect onto the same heavy duty 3/8" terminal on the starter motor.
The lower 3/8" power post (closest to the motor housing) connects only to the starter motor and should not normally be tampered with.
There should be one more light duty wire that operates the starter motor engage solenoid .- This is connected back to the ignition switch 'Start' +12V control output.

1990 300zx solenoid/starter relay


I would go for the starter motor personally first, as thats the part that cranks the engine over :)

that gets power, then it starts turning the flywheel, the starter motor also keeps the engine running inbetween the engines power strokes while its running.

Go for the starter relay & the starter motor :)

Thanks.
