The "bendix" in the starter may be getting weak, or the battery may not have enough power to get the starter to engage every time. When you hit the starter button, does the starter sort of stall? If so, this is common, it's the starter trying to overcome the compression in the motor.

Behind starter fly wheel only moves back not forward wil not start not start starter seems like its working spins


Disconnect the battery and then carefully remove the starter. Take the unit to a local auto parts dealer for a bench test. Starters have two separate functions, one spins the shaft to crank the engine, the other is called a bendix, which pushes the starter gear out to engage the flywheel, and then after the engine engages, retracts it (except in the case of starter/generator combo units which recharge your battery and power your vehicle's electricals while the engine is running) Always best to get a bench test rather than depending on apparent symptoms.

Turn the key to start-can hear switch engage but either hesitates before starter engages or does


How old is the Jeep? Most likely either the starter has a bad solenoid or there is a corroded/ loose connection between the battery and the starter.

Good battery, key will not engage starter, jumping starter will not engage drive


jumping across the solenoid will spin the starter but will not engage the pinion in the ring gear. Have a load test done on the battery as I suspect that there is a bad cell and you are not getting a full charge. If the battery is faulty then there is always enough power to turn on dash lights but nothing left to run the high current solenoid and starter.

Avital 473L TX will start and keep the starter engaged


Sounds like the ignition or accessory output from the remote starter is connected to the starter wire. Has it always done this?

97 GMC Sierra starter engagement intermittent. Gages ans all dash indications power up when key is rotated but starter will no always engage. No solenoid 'click' or other sound noticed. Thought the...


This sounds primarily like a starter on it's way out. The next time the starter will not engage the first time, have someone else hold the key into the start position and you tap the starter with a hammer and if it engages, replace your starter. Let me know if you need instructions on how to do so.

Starter not engaging


it sounds as though the starter motor is on the way out. to confirm this, you need to have the started in a fail situation and place a test light on the signal wire of the starter. if it illuminates, your starter is bad.
