SOURCE: starter motor will not work unless 12v feed put through relay

Have you checked the solenoid across the main posts i.e.connection from battery to starter,you may be hearing the solenoid clicking when you operate the starter button,but it might not be completing the circuit.

Grinds when the car has been stalled for a bit and then started. Sounds like a metal scraping noise. Also when decelerating or reaching a stop it whines and towards the end if broken abruptly it does

The grinding noise when you are braking is worn out pads. Metal against metal is not good for your discs - replace the pads otherwise your up for machining of the discs or replacing. That noise on start-up is common with worn teeth on the fly wheel. The fly wheel will stop in "common" positions just how the momentum of the motor works and the teeth can wear out at these spots - sounds horrid but is not "unsafe" problem is one day you may not be able to start the car if the starter cannot engage the fly wheel to turn the motor over. This is where you hear of people turning the motor over a little by hand (they usually remove the stone plate from below the fly wheel to hand crank the engine) I don't recommend this practice probably better to price a replacement and while it is apart consider any other work eg. Clutch or minor seal leaks as it is not a small job to replace the flywheel.

I have alot of grinding out of the rearend

Sounds like bearing or bearing are gone out. Jack up vehicle, check fluid level. Grab one wheel and spin it, listening for noise from wheel bearing area and the rear end. If no noise, spin other wheel listening for noise from that wheels bearing.

If it's a heavy grinding you are hearing, it's rear end.

I have 2004 TTR-125 and the kick start has a problem... When you try to kick it it makes a grinding sound... and some times when you kick it it makes the regular kick sound but only does it half way down...

It sounds like you have damage to the gear on the kicker shaft or an idler gear that rides on it or both. Either or there is likely metal bits loose inside the engine.
Pull the spark plug and with the ignition off work the kickstart through it's paces and see if you can kinda tell things about whats going on. Is the nasty sounding bit always in the same spot as the crank rotates...hard to tell but suffice to say if you're hearing nasty gronching noises and meeting resistance when kicking you got trouble inside. If you meet any serious resistance I wouldn't push it.
The kick assembly can be accessed via the side cover....bit of a job but not too big. Biggest part will be making sure all the metal bits are gone.
Take care.

Sometimes the starter needs a shim installed to help this problem. If there was not a grinding noise with old starter you should be able to install a shim,these shims you can get at your auto parts store. they come in several thicknesses, most times you get 2 or 3 different thicknesses in a pack. Start with the thinner one and loosen the two starter bolts 3 to 4 turns then remove bolt furthest from engine , shim will slide in and slot at end should stradle bolt, align hole at other end and install other bolt and retighten bolts. test starter for noise,if noise is gone your done, if not try next thicker shim till noise is gone sometimes damage to the teeth on the flywheel can cause this noise but try the shims first. Good Luck!

Ok, here's a doosie for ya, I have a 91 civic, 5 speed manual with 185k miles on it. A few weeks ago it started making an awful noise coming from the area of the bell housing. It sounds like metal...

I think your gear box will have to come out, because I believe what you're hearing, is a damaged bearing....I can't recall if your car uses a pilot bearing, but I believe it does and that one would be a suspect.
Another of the bearing's that could cause the problem, is the clutch release bearing. If that has been over adjusted and is in constant contact with the pressure plate (clutch cover), it will give the symptoms you talk about.
As the box has been removed during the past, have you checked the gear box oil level?
If it's dry or the oil level very low, the gearbox input shaft bearing could be damaged.
I do not believe the noise has anything to do with the starter motor!
As the noise is obvious during idling, start the engine and while it's idling....With a very long screw driver, pin point the noise in this way.....Take off anything dangling from around your neck and don't wear loose clothing....Give your neighbors a treat, and if necessary.... remove anything that can get caught anywhere....
Take the long screw driver and place the business end in firm contact with the engine block behind the front of the bell housing, close to the starter motor and press your ear to the handle....You'll hear the noise....Now change the place to listen on top of the bell housing.....and then to the gear box side of the bell housing....If the noise is loudest in the front, then suspect the pilot bearing....Middle or top,...suspect the thrust bearing....With this one have someone press and release the clutch pedal while you listen for any changes in frequency ....Gear box side input bearing....
Once we know more about the problem, if you would like to tackle it yourself let me know and we'll go on from there....
Now put your shirt back on and wave to all your new friends....Best regards Johngee10

Doesn't want to keep running and some grinding noise when startin

From what you describe I would suspect that the starter is not fully engaging. I'm assuming that the grinding noise you hear when you try to engage the starter is INSTEAD of the engine cranking. If I assumed wrong, ignore the following:
Pull the starter, check the flywheel for excessively worn areas. Most of the time the flywheel is ok, it's just the starter. Any time you disassemble a starter you should replace the bushings and brushes. Never remove the starter with the battery still connected. Remove the negative terminal from the battery before you attempt to remove the starter.

I have a 2003 jeep liberty..Jeep runs great .Having a start issue.It started when it was cold.The bendix would stick and stay inengaed for a it got colder it was louder sounded like i was holding...

try shimming the starter , it sounds like it is a tiny bit to close to the flywheel and is binding, causing a tinny or metal to metal sound.
dosent sound like it needs a very thick shim .probably no more
than a thousands or two. hope this helps

Starter button wont work,battery ok,everything else was fine

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try starting the bike with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the sidestand folded up. If it does start, then the interlocks (safety features) has to be checked.

If still a no go, determine if you hear a clicking sound. If yes, follow the big cable from the battery's + terminal. it would normally end up in the starter motor relay. Jumper the 2 big terminals while starting the bike. Expect a big spark hence jumper on the nuts, not on the threaded portion. if the starter motor spins, then it would be a defective syarter relay. If the motor stil fails to spin, then it would be a faulty starter motor; most likely the carbon brushes.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
