When you push the start button and the relay clicks the lead from the relay to the starter should have 12volts. If it doesnt you either the relay is bad or the cable(lead) is bad from the relay to the starter.Hope this helps.

2007 polaris ranger 500 efi 4x4 looses all power before key switch

Check the main fuse to the ignition switch.It will either come directly from the battery + terminal or pick up from the "hot" meaning "positive" side of the starter motor relay. If it comes from the relay you will locate it by following the main "positive" lead from the battery. From the relay you can then trace it to the main fuses. Hope this helps you out.

Why won't it crank?

Check Battery first, then earth and positive leads from battery, then positive lead to the starter solenoid!

Can you define the action the wire from ignition to starter silanoid performs is it positive or negitive or does it bridge the gap between the 2 termanals

The ignition switch is not connected to the starter solenoid . That wire on the solenoid comes from the starter relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . or battery junction box , an it is positive voltage. The starter is grounded through the engine block. Do you know what a relay is ? When you turn the ignition key to start , that is an input to the PCM - powertrain control module , then if there is no anti-theft system problems the PCM will supply a ground to the control side of the starter relay , energizing the relay . There by sending power to the starter solenoid energizing the starter .

Location to put the jumper cables

You will need to put the positive lead from the jumper battery onto the positive lead of the car battery . Then place the earth lead from the jumper battery to and part of the motor This prevents a power surge that will damage the CPU. If you find it more convenient to connect to the power lead from the battery say at the starter relay or onto the starter positive itself and the negative (earth ) to the engine that would work also

Engine will not turnover

If there is no power coming IN to the starter relay - the ignition module has failed.
Replace the Ignition.

Im trying to locate the starter for 1994 jeep grand cherokee , see if its easy to replace, and also the location of the starter relay

starter relay is in power distribution center near battery. don't know which engine you have, but if you flollow the positive cable on the battery, it will lead you to the starter. Most are not difficult to replace, depends on how much experience you have. One tip...dont overtighten wire connections on starter the solenoid cover is plastic and can break.

Won't start good battery but I hear a click but won't turn over..

Check for a good ground at engine end of negative cable. check starter end of positive as well. Click tells you that either the starter relay is getting signal from key switch and is not responding or that starter solenoid (on starter) is doing the same. If there id 12v at the starter main lead and 12v at the smaller starter terminal with key in start position, change the starter.(providing good ground and connections have been verified) If there is no power at small lead, suspect the relay has failed.(in power distribution box near battery)

89 toyota celica st not starting but clicking

There is either a cable not getting a very good connection, solenoid has problems, or there is a wiring leading to a relay that has a bad connections. How is your ignition? Is it loose or have loose wires?

also check the magnetic switch mounted on the starter housing, is supplied by current from the starting switch circuit of the ignition switch. This magnetic action of the switch mechanically engages the starter clutch assembly and electrically closes the heavy switch which connects it to the battery. The starting switch circuit consists of the starting switch contained within the ignition switch, a transmission neutral safety switch or clutch pedal switch, and the wiring necessary to connect these in series with the starter solenoid or relay.
