There should be a relay and a fuse there also and one of these could be giving you the trouble. when you turn the key to start - check to see if you have 12 volts at the solenoid,, if you do not then trace the line backwards.
also check the positive side of the solenoid and make sure you have 12 volts there.
if you need further help please feel free to ask and I will do my best to walk you through it.
it will help me out on my end if you can give me the year,make and model of the mower - thanks.

The electric start won't work. Battery was replaced last season and charged but still won't start electrically. Using pull rope- starts on 1st/2nd pull. No cuts found in wiring.


Are your battery cables all tight and clean on both ends?
does it turn over at all if not your starter may need repairing. also make sure your new battery is charged up. New batteries can go bad. If left out in the cold and not charged up they will freeze and bust open and let the acid out.

Rv won't start. starter just clicked rapidly after replacement, battery tested good. Dash lights (high beam and Turn indicators ) light when ignition switch is un start position


Poor connection either at the starter, battery, alternator, or loose engine ground strap. Fully charge the battery also.

1991 Toyota Pickup - wont start....battery is ok


faulty starter relay, faulty starter, faulty starter switch, (not to be confused with key switch), how do you know your battery is ok? it could lose its charge overtime/have a dead cell, might have enough energy for lights, but not a high draw thing like a starter. Make sure your battery has 12.5 volts, 13.5 volts being nice and fully charged. check battery connections at both ends, battery and starter ends.

Will not start,OR CRANK, NO NOISE


Do warning lights and gauges come on, when key is turned to on?
If yes, check for power on the small wire at starter solenoid mounted on the starter with the key held in start. If power at the solenoid, take starter off and test for a bad starter or solenoid. If no power at solenoid when key held over to crank, work back to the switch in the start circuit-starter relay, clutch or neutral safety switch,-power from the start wire out of switch is not getting to the starter solenoid.
If no warning lights or gauges work with key in on position, power is either not getting to switch (bad maxi-fuse or fuse link, or bad battery connections-clean and tighten, recheck)-or the switch itself is not sending power out. Check if battery is charged up. Check all connections and grounds for loose, poor connections.
The start circuit starts at the battery, then to ignition switch, then out of ignition switch on the start wire to the clutch switch (or neutral/park on automatics), and on , ending at the starter solenoid on the starter. Somewhere in your starting circuit, power is lost. Start at the battery-check charge, check connections, check ignition switch.

My 2000 Ford Expedition has erratic poor starting. Starter cranks, but no ignition. I have sprayed carb cleaner in the air intake hood (downstream of filter )and then it starts and runs. I suspect the...


If it is a single click, the problem lies in the starter solenoid or relay. If it is several clicks in succession, the battery may be low or there may be a loose cable. ---------- also try this :-- Please make sure the battery is fully charged before doing this test! Also make sure all the connections on the starter, battery and cable ends are tight and clean! this is important!! This won't be fun to test but it will tell you if the starter is good or not. Crawl under the car. (Make sure you use the proper jacks and jack stands!) find the end of the starter (not the end that is attached to the bell housing) and find the solenoid switch. it should have 3 bolts on it. Two large ones and a small one. The top large wire should be the positive battery cable, the bottom large wire should go into the starter and the small wire should be from the ignition switch. Take a wire and hold it to the top large wire on the solenoid. (be careful of the other end of that wire when you have it connected to the top large wire of the solenoid! don't ground this wire. it will turn out badly. take the other end of the wire and touch it to the small bolt on the solenoid end. If the starter is working, the solenoid should engage and the starter will turn. If this happens it is most likely the ignition switch. If the starter doesn't turn, the starter could be bad. ==== Starter Relay Test
Place transmission in Park.
Apply parking brake.
Check for battery voltage between starter relay battery terminal and ground.
Connect jumper wire on starter relay between battery and ignition terminals.
If engine does not crank, connect a second jumper wire to starter relay between ground terminal and good ground and repeat test.
If engine cranks in step 3, transmission linkage is misadjusted or neutral safety switch is defective.
If engine does not crank in step 3, starter relay is defective.
Follow this step by step and you will pinpoint the problem.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

94 z wont start


You will have to check, at the starter, for power to the SMALL wire on the starter solenoid (which is on the starter) when turning the ignition switch to start.
If there is power to this wire ( usually purple ) and power at the LARGE cable ( from the battery ) at the starter end.....you need a starter.

If you do not have power at the small wire at the solenoid with the key in start position and battery power is OK.....check the safety neutral switch.Moving the shifter around a little can sometimes allow the car to start if the neutral switch is worn.

A new battery does not always mean a fully charged battery.
Try a boost from another car before testing the starter for power.

The battery cables need to be clean and tight....and check the ground to the engine as well.

Everything else may work OK with bad connections,they don't use the power the starter needs to turn the engine over.

Turnover problem with toro 16-42z riding mower


A fully charged battery should read a minimum of 12.65, if it does not and connections and grounds are dirty then that's your problem. Start with a none fully charged battery.If you can bypass the solenoid and start it then the culprit is the solenoid. Good luck. donnyb60

Starter won't engage


First, make sure that your battery is in good condition, FULLY CHARGED, and the wires/cables that are connected to the Battery Terminals are clean and securely connected, and the same with the Ground wire/cable from the Battery terminal to the Frame. If you still have that problem, is sounds like you need to replace your STARTER RELAY, and/or Clean or Rebuild the Solenoid. ALSO, check that the wire connection TO the solenoid (that's the small green wire that comes from the Starter Switch) is clean and securely connected. Good Luck.
