    alex #1 if you were to take a jumper from + side of bat to red wire leading to starter she should kick that way you just elemated the starter actually with key on some one sitting in the seat jump pos bat to red heavy cable leading to starter she should kick over when you go directly from bat to starter heavy red you bypass all of the safety switches what im trying to say is start out small dont start replaceing all these things till you make sure all the small stuf is elimited tou have about 4 type safety switches one being under your seat either by the rear of the seat or by the hinges you have safety switches on the brake pedal,gear switch,mower deck know you said you have a green wire with a round terminal look at the size of that terminal its designed to fit that size stud 3/8 1/4

    1/2 ya see the other thing is the length the sol usually takes about a 1/4 ring terminal look at the sol it will show you pos neg thats where it goes green =gnd now do your self a favor have someone sit on tractor use one side of jumper cable connect to pos of bat (tractor bat not car) touch the other side to heavy red wire going to starter she should crank and at least it will get you in the right direction ps there are so many safty switehes

  • alexander mcdougall Apr 24, 2010

    alex i just finished like a 5 papagraph comment to show you what to do this is the second time and i get kicked off look always start with the least expensive thing that green wire go 360 in all dir it should line up on your sol your sol should have stamps pos neg follow the flo of the harness check all safty switches seat,brake. shift nuteral safty switch dont spend a lot of money on starters,sol, take a piece of wire goto pos on bat to red heavy wire on starter shold kick over sit on seat should run then use reverse tactics to get to prob always check faulty saftet switches let me know wish i could give cell # i dont know if its legal

Starter not getting voltage

The starter gets powered by the solenoid which is energized when the ignition key is turned to the start position. Look at the picture below and read the sequence of operation below it. Once you find out what is NOT happening - you can troubleshoot back from there.


The IGNITION KEY SWITCH is connected by a small wire to the terminal in the GREEN circle on the SOLENOID. The battery is connected by a thick, heavy cable to the terminal in the RED circle of the SOLENOID. The terminal in the YELLOW circle of the SOLENOID is connected to a thick, heavy cable that goes directly into the STARTER MOTOR.

The -12 volts from the battery is connected to the car's engine, frame and body. The entire car has -12 volts available to all electric (and mechanical) parts, so only one wire is needed to energize those parts.

When the key is held in the START position, +12 volts from the battery is passed through the IGNITION SWITCH to the GREEN terminal on the SOLENOID. This causes the SOLENOID to (1) become energized, (2) internally physically connects the +12 volts RED terminal to the YELLOW terminal and (3) physically engages the STARTER to the engine's flywheel. When this happens, the +12 volts from the battery appears on the YELLOW terminal; and directly into the STARTER MOTOR. The STARTER MOTOR spins. Since it is engaging the flywheel, the flywheel turns too and the engine attempts to start. Once the engine is running, the key is released. The SOLENOID (1) becomes de-energized (2) opens the physical connection between the RED and YELLOW terminals, (3) disengages the STARTER MOTOR from the flywheel and the STARTER MOTOR stops spinning.

I hope this helps!

I have a 2001 chevy s-10 that will not shift out of park . I can move the shifter freely,but it will not shift. this is a column shifter.

There is a safety feature on these trucks that makes you depress the brake pedal so you can put the truck in gear, but if you look under the shifter if it is in the floor (console) you will see a solenoid under the shifter. You can over-ride the solenoid by pressing in on the white or cream color clip on the right side of the shifter.this will pull the set pin out towards the passenger side and allow you to put the truck into gear. This is called a shifter lock solenoid. You have to replace the whole shifter assembly if its not shifting out of park. It had to do with the safety feature of the brakes being applied before the car will shift into park. check out the brake switch wire.if its having a cut in between or a loose connection in between this problem can occur. There is a solenoid that locks the shifter in park until you press the brake.Try checking that solenoid and its associated circuitry. also check the brake light switch,you might have a bad brake light switch. the brake light switch releases the shifter lock mechanism.
It's called the shift interlock feature. It's triggered by the brake switch so make sure the brake lights are coming on when this happens. If you have no brake lights, then you will have to test for power in and out of the brake light switch If the brake lights are working, then you'll have to get to the solenoid in the console or column. Disassemble as much as you have to to access the solenoid near the shifting mechanism. Us a 12v test light to test for power arriving at the solenoid when the brake is applied. If power is arriving and the solenoid is not triggering, the solenoid is bad.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Can't get Shifter out of park on a 2005 F150 ford Truck.

If this is a new body style 2004 ( not a heritage or lightning ) did you check fuse #16 ? This is the fuse for the shift interlock switch on the brake pedal.

IF this fuse is good, check the shift interlock section of the brake pedal position ( BPP ) switch ( on the side of the brake pedal lever, usually has a yellow c-clip cover on it ).
The wires for the shift interlock circuit
Fuse #16 to Tan w/ REd stripe wire
Pink w/ light green stripe to the shift interlock solenoid.

If there is power on the Tan w/ REd stripe wire, press the brake pedal down, and check the pink w/ light greens stripe wire for power ( switch is closed when brake pedal is pressed.

If you do not have power on the pink w/ light greens stripe wire, you need a new BPP switch.
If you have power on the pink w/ light greens stripe wire, you need a new shift interlock solenoid.

Stuck in Park - 2001 Honda Accord 4cyc - Automatic

there is a solenoid on the shifter assembly that allows you to depress the button on the shifter to shift from park. this solenoid is controlled by the brake light switch on your brake pedal arm under the dash. you could have a bad brake light switch, bad wiring, or a bad solenoid on the shifter assembly. if your brake lights work properly, the brake light switch should be okay, and you'd start checking wiring to the solenoid. if the wiring tests good then you should replace the solenoid. you may need to buy the entire shifter assembly as most solenoids are not available seperatly.

Could not move column gear shift out of park on an automatic 98 econoline .

Check the brake switch. It should have four wires connected to it. Two for the brake lights, the other two for the shifter solenoid. Short the two wires that activate the solenoid. If the shifter solenoid activates when you short the wires, replace the brake switch. Otherwise the shifter solenoid maybe the problem. Also there is a manual release somewhere. It is usually a hole where you can stick a screwdriver into it. The hole maybe covered with a cap.

Gear shifter does NOT shwitch from park and break


  1. Remove the instrument panel cover below the steering column, then remove the steering column shrouds to gain access to the brake transmission shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid. The solenoid is part of the interlock cable assembly.
  2. Disconnect the wire connector from the rear of the BTSI solenoid.
  3. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.
  4. With the brakes applied, try moving the shifter out of the PARK position.
    • If the lever now moves freely in and out of PARK, perform the Circuit Test below.
    • If the shift lever still does not move from the PARK position, remove the BTSI solenoid from the shift lever assembly. If the shift lever now moves freely in and out of the park position, the BTSI solenoid is faulty and the interlock cable must be replaced. If the shift lever still does not move from the park position, the problem is in the shift lever assembly or the ignition interlock cassette

1989 Jeep Comanche 4x4, 5spd, straight six stuck in first gear.

It sounds like the part that the shifter fits into on the shift rail is sliding on the rail and not moving it. If there is no access cover in the floorpan (I don't ever remember seeing one), you would need to cut the floor open and fabricate a cover, or remove the transmission in order to remove top cover on unit to get to it. If you find anything broken, you need to find anything rolling around in there or it can and will find it's way to the nearest gear set and start breaking expensive things.
