SOURCE: solenoid just clicks and starter doesn't engage

Does your starter have a good ground now after the paint job??? If you jump from the battery to the starter side of the solenoid, do you get any results?

If you have good power and the starter is known good, your solenoid could be faulty.

Thanks for your question at

You only have 2 ways to go......1. fuel .....2. spark, if your cranking your bike, first off try this. crank it with no choke . if nothing happens , take your choke pull it all the way out, now crank it.
if it fires, push choke half way in, continue to crank, it should start . If nothing happens a all .

You have to pull out spark plugs, look at them closely . Is it soaked with gas ? or is it dry as a bone ? if it is soaked with gas, clean it up and dry it off, now check your gap it should be alright
but just check it anyways if the gap is to much it will not fire inside the cyclinder, if it is closed
to much it will not fire . take your plug put it back in just the plug wire and rest it up against the
head or any metal surface, now crank your bike if it has a good blue spark your good with the
electrial check both plugs same way . Now if that is ok , then you have to move on to the fuel.
if you have new clean fuel, good , if it is old like lat years get rid of it . drain everything tank and
all of your fuel filters replace, make sure all of your lines are flowing and carb will clean them self.
give it a little bit after it starts running be gentle with let everything catch up. If it needs final

adjustment on carbs take it back to who ever rebuilt them . Good Luck

I know it sounds silly, but have you checked your earth or ground wiring. If not earthed this type of problem can occur. Did the bike run before you replaced your coil etc? You could have a crook CDI
are you using multi meter mate for correct voltage readings?

My 2002 celica won't start. making a clicking noise. the battery is good. do I need a new starter? or solenoid?

If its a nippon denso starter you need solenoid contacts (low cost repair if you find your local starter repair man)
If your the handy type once you have got the starter off
remove the tin cover (3 screws) the contacts are inside

I have a 1989 sea ray boat. Does it have no power to the coil?

If you look at the coil you will see small wires on either side. One side is a ground and the other is power. Depending on the brand of outdrive you have the wires are color coded.

You should be able to see the color of the wires on the "Plus" side at the coil. Then follow the wiring loom back to the switches hanging by the shift cables on the engine. There are also wires on the UP/DOWN safety switches of the outdrive.

The outdrive must be down somewhat for the safety switches to release the ignition LOCKOUT. This is done because the driveshaft will snap if you start the motor with the outdrive up. Look for matching color coded wires to match the small hot coil wires.

The switches on the shift cables will LOCKOUT the starter solenoid so you can only START in neutral. Look for the color coded wires from the coil to see if they are on the correct set of switches. It is possible someone made a redundant connection and combined the ignition with the starter cutoff.

My car clicks takes at 4attempts to get it started new battery purchased 4wks ago is this a battery prob or something else?

this problem is caused by the starter solenoid having burned main contacts, it is common to all Nippon Denso designed starters which are now used by just about every car due to there light weight, u can either replace the starter solenoid that is part of the starter but replacable, or just install a rebuilt starter.

Changed battery, starter, checked timing belt. Clicks but won't turn over.

this car uses a Nippon Denso starter, this click means the heavy electrical contacts in the starter mountedr starter solenoid are burned, the solenoid works (the click u hear) but because of the burned contacts the starter gets no power to engage, u can replace the contacts only for around $15 from the following link, u will need the starter motor number.
