Yes, the solenoid gear teeth are jammed. For a temporary fix, you may try tapping on it with a hammer on the side of the cylinder to unjam it temporarily. Replace the solenoid. It's easier to install it and have the entire starter checked by a starter rebuild shop to assure our good guess solves your problem.

2008 flhx starter will not ingage


Does the start relay click, if not the problem is somewhere before the relay, in the fuse block, start/run switch or the starter switch. If it clicks all is okay up to that point and so the problem is somewhere between the relay and the solenoid if the solenoid then does not also click, or in the solenoid itself. If the solenoid rattles you likely have a discharged, weak or no god battery or corroded battery posts and terminals or solenoid stud. If the solenoid gives a click but the starter drive does not engage the drive may be defective and if the motor spins but does not engage you have a starer drive problem. If the starter engages but does not turn the engine over you may also have a weak battery, poor connection or poor ground or mechanical problems. DO a voltage drop test if you can.

First do a voltage reading on the battery and note what it is.

Using a voltmeter attach the red meter lead to the most positive part of the circuit, which would be the positive post of the battery and attach the black meter lead to the final destination or component in the circuit (if testing a starter circuit this would be the terminal on the starter, not the solenoid). THEN try to activate the starter and observe the meter reading. The meter will read the voltage dropped or the difference in potential between the source and the destination. An ideal circuit voltage drop reading would be 1 volt or less. If there is an open in the circuit (i.e. NO electricity is reaching the terminal) the voltmeter should read source voltage volts which means all the voltage was dropped. A normal good starter circuit should not show more than a one volt drop. If more than 1 volt is dropped there is a problem somewhere in the circuitry before the starter terminal. In this case leaving the red voltmeter lead on the battery positive post, move the negative voltmeter lead to the solenoid stud where the battery cable attaches and activate the starter circuit again. If the voltage reading is now 1 volt or less clean, repair, tighten the starter solenoid to starter terminal stud connections and test again and if no change clean/repair the internal solenoid contacts or replace the solenoid with a new/good one. If there is still a voltage drop greater than 1 volt move the negative voltmeter lead from the solenoid terminal stud to the actual battery cable terminal end at the solenoid terminal stud and again activate the starter circuit. If there is a 1 volt or less reading the battery cable terminal end and/or solenoid terminal stud and/or the connection between the two is faulty, loose, corroded or etc. Clean and tighten and retest. If there is still more than a 1 volt reading on the voltmeter the problem is a loose or corroded or otherwise bad connection between the battery cable terminal end and the battery positive post or the battery cable itself is bad. Clean and tighten the battery cable terminal and battery positive post and test again. If there is still more than a one volt reading on the voltmeter the battery cable is bad and will need to be replaced.

If there is less than a 1 volt reading when the test is done at the starter terminal the circuit up to that point is good so the next step will be to do a negative or ground circuit voltage drop test by connecting the negative or black voltmeter lead to the most negative point which is normally the negative battery post (or the closest thing thereto if, like some Sportsters, the battery post is hard or impossible to get to) and then connect the positive or red voltmeter lead to the starter mounting studs. Then activate the starter circuit again and if the voltage reading is greater than 1 volt clean the battery negative cable ends and battery post and negative cable to motorcycle frame or other grounding point, tighten same and similarly the starter mounting points and studs because there is a problem with the starter ground (could be looseness, corrosion, powder coat/paint problems etc). If the voltage reading is 1 volt or less than 1 volt in this test the ground circuit is okay and it will be necessary to perform a starter current draw test on the vehicle (and/or a starter current free draw test on the bench). If the results are within the specifications for the starter in these tests remove the spark plugs, raise the rear wheel so it can spin unimpeded, put the transmission in 5th gear and rotate the rear wheel to check for engine, transmission, primary and/or crankshaft resistance/bind. If the results are not within the amperage specifications for the particular starter replace or repair the starter motor to bring within the system amperage specifications.

Replace a starter relay solenoid


no i do not know where to download it from but its easy to do
there are two different starter solenoids and you will need to know this information before ordering a new one
so follow these instructions and it will be easier for you

DESCRIPTION
a solenoid is composed of copper coil windings
with a metal projectile inside
when a electrical current is passed through it it turns the metal projectile into a negative magnet and shoots it into what ever it need to move

(1) is pre engaged and is connected to your starter motor
and will take quiet a bit of knowledge and quiet a few tools to disconnect the starter solenoid from the starter motor
these are designed to make it harder for the diy mechanic to work on
so that you have to spend money in a work shop getting it repaired
most machines now days are fitted with this type of starter

(2) is a normal starter solenoid and stands alone
you will need to find this out before you replace it
and obtain the new starter solenoid from your local dealer
and make sure it is the right one for your (wet bike / jet ski)
these are designed for the home diy mechanic
and are very easy to replace

LOCATION
if it is a pre engaged type
from your main live battery terminal there will be a long red cable that goes direct to your starter solenoid that is attached to your starter motor
disconnect your main red cable and the two wires
undo your starter motor complete it will be easier to work on
may be dearer but easier to replace the whole unit

the non pre engaged type
your normal starter solenoid will be close to your battery normally in a rubber housing of some sort
the solenoid has two main live polls (one main cable goes to your battery with a label mark this with BATT)
(the second main cable goes to your starter motor with a label mark this with START)
and two wires coming from it (they go to your starter button)
and is placed between your battery and your starter motor

SOLUTION
make sure your battery is disconnected and both live and earth cables are undone and disconnected and remove the battery
your main RED live wire from your battery
follow it until it attaches to a block that block is your starter solenoid
disconnect the block by undoing both the nuts that hold the cable in place on the polls
disconnect the two wires
and replace in the same position as the original one
reconnect the cables and the wiring in reverse to the way you took them off
reconnect your battery
and start up

hope this info is ok
good luck

94 ford e350 van wont turn over when I turn the key it just makes a buzz sound good battery checked cables


Sounds like either the starter or starter solenoid. With the key in the "On" position try using one side (either positive or negative) of a pair of jumper cables. Locate the starter solenoid and clip one lead to the battery side of the solenoid, and just quickly touch the other lead to the other side of the solenoid. If the starter engages, replace the solenoid. If not, carefully check the positive cable from the battery to the solenoid for cracks, exposed wire, corrosion and good, tight connection. Good luck.

I need to change the starter in my 2001 dodge neon


The starter is located under the car where the transmission and engine meet toward the front of the neon. The starter actually bolts up with face toward the transmission. You must get the car up on ramps or on a hoist to see the starter. This is just a general method; it is very hard to give words to describe some of the steps without pictures. Removal: Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Raise vehicle on hoist. Remove starter bolts. Remove starter assembly. Disengage latch and remove solenoid connector from starter assembly. Remove battery positive connector from starter assembly. It is not necessary to remove the alternator output lead from the connector. Installation: Clean corrosion/dirt from the cable and wire terminals before installing wiring to the solenoid. Attach battery positive connector to starter. Ensure alternator output connector is snapped into the battery positive connector. Tighten the captive nut to 10 Nm (90 in. lbs.) . CAUTION: It is critical that the alternator output terminal be connected to the battery positive terminal of the starter solenoid, for proper operation of the charging and cranking systems. Install solenoid connector to starter. Ensure that latch is fully engaged. Position the starter face into transmission housing. Start bottom mounting bolt and thread in until bolt is snug. Attach ground cable to upper starter mounting bolt. Ensure the proper starter alignment before tightening the starter mounting bolts to 54 Nm (40 ft. lbs.) torque. Lower vehicle and connect negative battery cable.

Starter does not engage. I replaced the battery


You can remove the starter and bench test it on a vise. You will need your battery or a charger to test the starter with. The trick to do it is simple. The grond is the vise and the positive is the battery cable lug to the starter. Have a small wire to jump the positive and simply touch the solenoid connector to see if the starter engages

Vechile won't start. sometimes it will try but it won't fire up other times it won't make any noise and sometimes it will start. what could be the problem?


Have you checked the starter? Sounds like the starter or solenoid. Try turning the key to the on position and use a screw driver to cross the connections on the solenoid. If it cranks, the solenoid is bad. If it engages, but does not crank, it is the starter. You can also have the starter tested for free at most parts stores, if you take it off.

To find your starter, trace your positive battery cable to it. It is attached to your solenoid.
