SOURCE: 97 fatboy starter engages but will not stay engaged.

I would check the starter clutch its self first. It is a one way clutch so if you remove the starter and disassemble it to the starter clutch and hold the starter clutch in one hand and use your other hand to turn the starter clutch gear, it should only turn in one direction.

SOURCE: starter on 1200 L 2006 whirs but does not engage engine to start

Have the battery LOAD tested, a lot of times a battery will show good with no load on it but it can actualy be bad when tested under load. Also make sure your grounds are good clean and tight. Loose grounds is a very common problem with the 1200 sportsters.

SOURCE: 2005 Tucson. Good battery. Blinking lights in

Is the battery new or just charged. the battery could be the problem. Check the cables for corrosion or loose connections. The cables can corrode inside the insulation near the battery this can be seen by swollen cables.

SOURCE: Starter motor whirls, does not engage / start engine

The starter is actually an assembly with a motor and a solenoid. The solenoid does two things: it closes a contact to send electricity to the motor, but it also moves a gear on the motor shaft upward to engage a gear on the engine flywheel. Most likely, you will have to replace the starter assembly to fix this.
Just in case, you should also check the gear on the engine flywheel. It's where the starter pinion engages. If it's missing several teeth, you could just be in that 'dead spot'. That can temporarily be solved by turning the motor a little bit to get to a good spot - but remove the sparkplugs first! And eventually you'll end up in the dead spot again. It is a more expensive repair.
Good luck! Please rate if you find this helpful, thanks!

Starter clicks but will not turn engine over on 2004 Dodge Durango. New starter and battery.

Hi Mark
Sounds like you are doing all the right things.
We used to Load Test a Starter Motor by putting it in a Large Vice and connecting a known good battery with solid fat jumper leads.
When the solenoid throws the cog forward to engage we would use a 2 by 4 block of wood levered against the cog to try and stop the starter from spinning. The wood burns up under load but it quickly proves the Starter is functioning under load. Without using the engine.
Also you could try removing the spark plugs on the engine to allow the compression to escape. Make sure NO sparks around to ignite any fuel vapor.
The engine should spin over easily like this and you can hear & see if anything is binding up.
Hope this Helps!
Good luck!

Sounds like a battery to me.
They can show enough voltage, but when put under load they do not have enough amps to start...and amps are what really matters when engaging the starter.

Engine is a re-build done less than 100 miles, was starting ok but now it wont turn just continuous clicking like starter wont engage!

Sounds like the battery isn't charged enough to power the starter.
Take the battery off and charge it properly with a proper battery charger.
Refit and it should be fine.
If not, it's new battery time.

Hello, my LGTH2454 has been running fine. It sat for about an hour then I went to start it and the starter engaged on the flywheel but won't turn. I took the starter off and tested it. It seems to...

Sounds to me like the battery hasn't enough charge to turn the engine. Taking the starter off and testing it doesn't require much power as it doesn't have to turn the engine. Check the battery and also that the charging system is charging the battery back up. Alex.

New starter 1 year ago -allways turns over on first try but sometimes will get clicking on subsequent tries -often takes several 5-10 clicks before it will engage again

You either have dirty/loose battery cables, or more likely a battery that is in need of replacement. Check the battery connections 1st, if ok, bring the car to a parts store for a free check of the battery and charging system. I believe you will find that the battery is at the end of its life.

Just changed the stater, however, it will only click when i turn the key, any suggestions

In order to have the starter work, the solenoid has to close the positive connection to the starter. The solenoid now is corroded inside, when it click to engage the contact inside, but the contact is not good to conduct the current to the starter. Therefore your starter is not turning. Need to replace the solenoid. it is on top of your starter. Here is the image. 5cc5b1b.jpg

On my 99 beetle the engine rotates but wont start and when you stop turning the key the engine whines would this be a starter problem?

Could very well be a starter problem, but I typically suggest that one should check out the condition of the battery (may not be throwing sufficient amps to crank the starter), and then the alternator to make certain the alternator is providing enough amps to fully charge the battery.

Sounds like the starter is actually turning, just not fully engaging. when a starter dies 6 out of 10 times it's a bad selenoid (causing a loud clicking sound instead of the starter engaging). Doesn't sound like your immediate problem.

Try jump starting the Beetle. If it starts that was it's probably a battery or alternator issue. If your successful in getting the car started your local autoparts store (AutoZone, Advance Auto or O'Reillys) can test your battery and alternator for Free. Call before you go to make certain that their testing equipment is functioning.
