What I would do is isolate the starter from the switch and see if the starter turns without heating up any wires. If this works, then you have a loose connection going to the swich. Trace out the wires to the switch. As far as the ground, I would place it on the engine block or genset, where ever you can find a bolt.

My huskee will start but I have to let go of the key or it just keeps turning over unless I let go of the key.Could the key be hooked up on wrong posts.


Well, the same in your car, if you hold the key too long, the starter will keep spinning and you'll burn it out. The start position on a key switch allows power to flow through a starter solenoid, like a sort of light switch, which sends power to the starter itself. Once you let go of the key, it stops sending the starter power and the small starter gear retracts and the engine continues to run until the coil is grounded by turning the key to the off or O position.

1998 ford mustang no start just a single click


If the starter is clicking when you turn the key that means it is getting power. It could possibly be a bad new starter but before taking it out and testing check your battery and ground connections. Make sure they are clean by using some sand paper. There is also a ground wire that hooks to engine make sure it is hooked up and not corroded. Even though you bought a new battery make sure it is fully charged. Remember to remove the ground from battery before taking any positive wires off. Hope this helps.

Does the neg. battery cable hook to the starter on a 1996 mercury villager? or some where else?


Yes the neg cable is grounded at the starter bolts and also at the frame.
Do you have power coming from the starter relay down to the starter solenoid with the key switch in the start position ?
Do you have headlights when you try to crank the engine ?
Have you tried cranking it in neutral ?

Ground wire from key switch starts burning when i try to start riding lawnmower BATTERY GROUNDED GOOD


You have a ground issues somewhere of where a wire may have rubbed the frame and is shorting out, wrong solenoid (frame ground verse wire ground) or a starter issue.

Take the starter off and test it with a good battery and jumpers to make sure its working correctly. Second...start tracing your wires back to the solenoid and then to the switch looking for bare or loose wiress.

My lawnmower won't start. WHen I turn the key it


Check battery cable for correct hook up. Red positive to starter and black to ground. If battery connected backward starter rotates in opposite direction and can burn up starter. If correct battery hook up check plastice gear on starter for wear.

1995 Nissan Maxima won't start, not battery.


You may have bad solenoid, starter/battery/solenoid connections, or gound.

Check voltage at starter solenoid when somebody turns key to start. That is where the starter switch, or relay, sends the voltage to pull in the solenoid coil through small wire. I think the solenoid is on the starter for this car, but it may be separate. Autozone has an excellent web site with car-specific repair guides and instructions. You should see 12V at solenoid every time the key is turned to start.

Check big power cable to starter that runs direct from the battery for tight connections. If you have a separate solenoid, then another big cable runs from it to starter. A loose or bad connection could be the culprit. Also check starter mount bolts. They need to be tight for a good solid electrical ground. You also need good ground from frame to engine. Its a long shot, but sometimes the ground straps come loose or burn. You can easily check this by measuring resistance between engine block and negative battery terminal. It should be zero or darn near zero (less than 1 ohm ?).

The solenoid is really a heavy duty swich to handle the high amp load to the starter. It works by a coil that pulls in the big switch. The coil operates from the starter switch and needs onlyt low current and small wire. If the coil wires burn up or there is a bad connection, it won't work. Hope this helps.
