If you hace replaced the starter, selenoid. relay ETC.....

Replace the starter One more time...
But replace the Starter Selenoid or Relay.. Normally located near the Battery.. BUT the RELAY MUST BE STANDAR's come in a RED BOX. Open the box. To see the RELAY. ON back of the RELAY must see the Message.

Starter needs replaced


It can be faulty starter or there is loose connection from battery to starter. The starter assembly gets power from battery. Check voltages at starter wires and see if you are getting 12 volts or not. If not then its no power issue due to low battery volt or no connection between battery to starter.

When trying to start the car I get nothing upon turning the key over. The starter isnt clicking, I was told it was the cellinoid(sp?) and tried replacing that and getting the same results. I checked the...

I would check all the heavy cable connections on the battery, both wires on the solenois and at the starter connections (a little dificult to reach) Give each connection a good twist and make sure it's tight.

You can energize the solenoid manually if you are electonically enclined.. Or better yet, if you have a Volt/Ohm meter, measure the 12V. signal to the solenoid when you turn the key to start it, (measure across the solenoid terminal smaller wires). Be careful doing this.

Any questions,....reply here..good luck.

Toyota four runner 95 v6 it doesnt start makes clicking sound in the engine?

if your battery is fully charged, then your starter celliniod contact is probably worn out.

you can remove your starter and have it tested at an alternator/starter specialty repair/rebuild shop. if the cellinoid or cellinoid contact tests bad, then you can replace either of those for just a few dollars.

if the entire starter tests bad, then you can usually have it rebuilt for around $100.

1994 Camry 4 Cylinder-Starter spins fine but does not seem to engage the flywheel. I have a new starter and battery. Im not ready to get into the flywheel. What else can I test to see why its not engaging...

Well, the easiest solution is to pull the starter and bench test it. Likely areas for your issue is the starter drive, and flywheel teeth. You need to inspect the teeth of the flywheel.

one quick test would be to manually turn the engine to another location and fresh teeth on the flywheel, and try starting again. Engines tend to stop at some spots, and that can cause unusual wear on teeth in one small location.

Sometimes rebuilt starter do not get all new parts, but only what is failing, so it is possible to get a malfunctioning starter drive. Starter drive failure usually turns the engine over briefly, then the starter disengauges....

Have you taken the starter to have it tested, or tested it yourself ? It might also be your fuselink going to your starter. It could be burned.

Turn key to start but only makes a click sound battery is fine

this problem is caused by burned battery connection contacts inside the starter motor solenoid (part of the starter), the click is the solenoid pluger being pulled back to make a battery connection to turn the starter, in your case that connection is never made due to burned away contacts. this is the most common problem with all modern light weight "mini" starters.

97 oldsmobile regency starter

Check fusable links in your battery cable and starter wires. Do you have power at the starter where the positive cable attaches? Your battery is good? Do you have any power anywhere else?
