1989 chev astro lights work changed the starter ,still won't start?


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?
If the starter motor won't even crank the engine? Two voltage circuits to starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position and is probably wired through neutral switch for auto tranny. The starter motor grounds through engine block.

1999 ford explorer wont start. battery is new.wont start when jumped. it tries to turn over but barely. then only hear a click. when you turn the key the dash lights and radio lights flicker on an


Sounds like starter motor given your slow to no turnover, I assume your new battery has full charge, if not, check with meter, it may be a defective battery, or another issue with connections, did you clean cable connections when you put in new battery? I assume your engine was running properly before battery change and is not partially seized due to overheating or low oil.

Good luck,

New tdi starter weak turns slow


Sometimes battery cables can short the circuit; try getting them away from any metal or each other.

Won't start. won't even crank when key turned.


no cranks, (A/T or M/T?)(
battery lugs cleaned?
Key turned on , CEL glows in dash, Check engine light>? yes, good.
does car crank jumper cable started.??????
if yes, your battery is bad or discharged, (good batteries can just be discharged, discharged dont make them bad, only dead or weak)
if ,jumper fails, to crank it fast.
then hot wire the solenoid (on side of starter caseing)
key in pocket, '
jump the big lug to the very tiny lug on the solenoid
cranks , not? bad starter
yes cranks but dont run, good, key is in pocket for safety, this is normal
but the KEY line is dead.
bad PRNDL switch

Wont start. wont even crank.


Do you have power at the starter terminals ?
Could be something between the starter and the key switch such as the neutral safety switch.

01 Mazda 626 I4 not starting after overheat/head gasket replacement


I would almost have to be there in person to advise.
I doubt anything happened to the starter as a result of the engine overheating.
One of the pistons or cylinder walls could have warped when it overheated which would cause a difficult crank, but you should have noticed it when you turned it by hand.
Its possible the timing is off, even possible something broke after you got it all back together.
I would probably start by pulling the plugs and making sure it is not a compression problem. Also try turning the crank by hand to see if the engine is tight.

My 96 jeep Laredo will not turn over. I've checked


sorry turns over means ZERO
the crank shaft can spin or not
the starter can in fact spin and crankshaft not.
and some think turns over means, engine runs. now that fact makes turns over, a dead statement.

the word is cranks over, the engine cranks over robustlyl
and then the engine runs.
then runs for more that 3 seconds, and the ASD relay holds. (step by step his works like this ,93 to now)

wont crank ? (clear statement in fact)
cranks ok, (crank shaft spins fast) can be seen and heard.
runs for 3 seconds? and stalls (ASD relay drop out) can be seen.
runs for 5min and stalls. (complex)
runs for hours and stalls. (even more complex)
all are key facts to the solution.

tell more..... tell all it does good bad or ugly
for better suggestions!

2008 flhrc road king when my motor is warm and I try to start it, some times the starter drags or not strong enough to start?


Is it just a one time clunk when it starts or is it more than that? Starters do seem to be working hard sometimes when cranking over an engine with good compression but should still get it started within a few revolutions.

Make sure you have good clean connections from battery to starter and ground. If all okay, you may want to have a starter draw test performed.
