,i can only think of one thing short in the wire somewhere, ????? WRONG - open wire not shorted . Looking at wiring diagrams an using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter to test the starter electrical circuits is the proper way to diagnose . Plus knowing how the circuit works would help . Your going at this blind.... That's why professional technicians go to training classes an why the factory spends millions on publishing service repair manuals . Looking at a wiring diagram i see that when the key is turned to the start position it sends a voltage signal to the PCM - engine control module . The PCM then supply's a ground to energize the starter relay ,this will close the contacts inside the relay sending B+ voltage to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . I see the PCM/CRANK fuse 10amp. located in the I/P fuse box. PCM/ABS fuse 10amp. I/P fuse box . I also see fusible link C (gray) this comes from the starter main batt. cable hook up. Do you know how a relay works ?

VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis

Having a factory or professional grade scan tool to check input from the ignition switch to the PCM an checking starter relay control would be a big plus in the diagnostic procedure . But can diagnose without it. Does your vehicle have a security light lit on the instrument cluster ? If so , this will keep the PCM from starting the vehicle .

SOURCE: 89 iroc camaro starter wiring connections?

I'm assuming there are 2 wires. On most starters there are 2 threaded posts. One will be chassis ground the other one will be electrically isolated on an insulated standoff, this will be the positive (usually red) wire from the starter relay which is usually somewhere close to the battery. If there is only one wire then it will be the postiive and bolting the starter in is "connecting" the ground. Make sure the mounting area is clean.

You should have a purple wire that goes to the starter,plus the red one from pos on battery. I believe you will have a red wire and a black w/red stripe or red/ w black stripe gong to the alternator.
As far as the distributor I think factory was a big pink wire. But you can also just run a wire from the fuse box that would only be hot with key in on position. If you need more help please ask.
Make sure you have your seat belt on and hang on to the steering wheel when you drop the hammer on that 383cu.
Good luck and enjoy.

check the fusible links. they are located near the positive jump terminal. if they are hard they are ok, if they are soft then that means they have melted and need to be replaced.

99 mustang won't start it only do 1 click. If it


Battery good, cables good, all connections clean and tight, no corrosion on battery terminals?
Try to determine if click is from solenoid on the starter or starter relay. Turn the headlights on and watch them while someone turns the key to start. If they get dim, probably the starter-have it tested-even new ones are sometimes bad. If lights don't dim, you will need to check the start circuit. Check for power on the small wire to starter solenoid when key is held in start. If no power there, work back towards the ignition switch. Check the neutral safety switch-should have power in and power out when key held in crank. The ignition switch will have a start wire out of the switch going to the neutral safety switch. It should have power with key in start, the only time the start wire will have power.
Post back with what you find-good luck.

Where is the starter relay in 97 oldsmobile aurora


In a '97 model car most of your relays would be in the power distribution box by the battery, but very seldom that is the problem. Truthfully, without a multi-meter and some electrical systems understanding, you would just be looking in the dark. But having checked your battery connections-both cables are snug and tight on a new, fully charged battery? And the new starter had its mounting bolts down tight and, most important, the electrical connections (large battery cable end, and the small starter solenoid wire) all put back in place and tightened down?

Well, if you got it all back together right, turning the key to crank should send voltage to the small wire on the starter solenoid, energizing it and allowing battery voltage to pass to the starter motor and thus crank the engine over. If you have a problem with the starter, that's where you start looking=at the starter. Check if the small wire has power in start position of the ignition switch. Cheery-o's!

My 1993 Dodge Caravan won't start. There's a clicking sound under the hood when I turn the key. I was told to reset the map sensor. Although, I don't know how. I put in a new starter yeste


Do not go back to any " mechanic" who told you to re-set the map sensor. Those are some baaad mechanics, giving you a schuck job. That is outrageous . If the clicking is coming from the relay and fuse center by the battery, you probably need a new $10 starter relay. If the clicking is coming from the starter solenoid on the new starter you put on, then it's not a bad part, but likely a loose connection at the battery, or at the starter where the big cable wire attaches. Are your battery cable connections corrosion-free and clean and tight? Did you happen to remove a ground wire and forgot to re-attach it? Check your battery ground, the negative cable where it attaches to the frame of the car, or to the engine. That should be clean and tight also. If the starter solenoid is clicking, it means that the starter is getting a signal from your ignition switch to turn the starter motor on, but the starter motor is not getting full battery power from the battery to start turning and thus cranking the engine. The starter motor gets its full battery power from the positive positive cable. One end is on the battery, and the other end is on the starter. If your battery is still charged up enough to start the car, all connections are tight, you have a new starter, and the solenoid just clicks, it may be a bad battery cable.
I will stop here, and wait for your response . Hope you find it, just keep looking. There is no such thing as re-set the map sensor, period.

Won't start


So it's a no crank condition? Do dash lights, gauges, and everything else work when the car won't crank over? If so, buy a cheap $5.00 testlight, and when the car won't crank, pull the small black wire off the starter solenoid. While someone holds the key in start (cranking) position and clutch pedal depressed, see if the black wire has power as it should. (Ground the testlight and just touch the wire's end terminal. If powered, the testlight will light up.) If power there, then the starter solenoid is failing. Toyota starters are very good units, but the solenoid's internal contacts get old and pitted.
If no power at the black wire, then the start circuit from ignition switch to clutch safety switch (on the clutch pedal) to starter relay to starter solenoid will have to be diagnosed. To double-check: take a single battery jumper cable and put it on the positive battery post connection. Put the other end of the jumper cable on the solenoid terminal where black wire was removed. Key can be off. Make sure car is in neutral, brake set. If starter now operates, solenoid is O.K., and it is a problem in the start circuit, -ignition switch, neutral start switch, or in the wiring.
Now find a grounding place for testlight under the dash. When car won't crank, check for power coming out of ignition switch on the black wire with white stripe. This is the start wire for the starter solenoid. Key must be in crank position. Wire shoud be powered-ignition switch is working. If no power, switch is failing. You can do the same for the clutch start switch-it's a simple switch, that when clutch is depressed switch is closed and passes power on from ignition switch to the starter relay (thus allowing power to the starter solenoid). Black wire, red stripe-this is wire from clutch switch to starter relay. When key is in crank, clutch depressed, this wire should be hot.
With me so far? Still haven't found a problem, or any loose connections? Next and last is the starter relay. It is located under dash, close to gas pedal, but under the center console, just forward and left of gear shifter. It can be tested and the wiring diagnosed there, but relays are cheap, so just swap in another and see if that helps.
If you have tried everything, and still no help, you could try a new wire from the relay to the starter solenoid. This is that black wire we started with. Older toyotas sometimes have a problem with degraded wiring not passing enough current to operate the starter

2004 chevy tahoe won't turnover or start by being jumped


The ignition start circuit is the path from the ignition key in cranking mode to the solenoid on the starter. The path travels through a starter relay and a neutral safety switch before it reaches the starter.
This must be the circuit not working on your car.Make sure battery and starter connections are tight.Check for power at the starter solenoid terminal with a testlight when someone turns key to crank. If you have power there, they sold you a defective starter. If you have no power there then it could be the relay or the neutral safety switch.

My 1993 mercury sable has been sitting an a garage for four years the battery was bad so I replaced.now when I go to start it it Wil clik one time but it won't turn over. Why won't it start?


Sounds like the starter is bad. The one click would be the solenoid on the starter engaging but the starter does not turn. If it does not click the next time you try to start, then that would indicate the solenoid is sticking. Also ensure that the cable to starter is good and the connections are tight. The starter will have 2 wires. 1 heavy wire that runs the starter itself and a lighter wire that runs the solenoid. The second wire seems good. Also ensure there is not an inline fuse in the starter cable. Some cable incorporate the inline fuse in case the wire shorts out to the chassis.

My darango won't start, replaced that alternator and relays. starter is still good. but it won't even click over.


this could be as simple as a bad battery have you tryed to jump start it? if you try and that dosent work make sure you have power going to the starter with jumper cables on the battery. it should at the very least make a clicking sound while trying to start it check the battery posts also make sure they are clean and if it does click give it a minute and try starting it again.[ dont take the cables off the battery while waiting] the fact the starter doesent even click when you try to start it tells me no power to it or bad starter remember just because its new dosent mean it works i cant tell you how many times i have put somethig on a car and had to take it back off because it didnt work from the boxx new. and make sure the starter wires are tight and clean. if no clicking and you have power to starter then starter is bad.. i hope this helps..

I have a 2000 jeep cherokee sport and it will not start with the key anymore, there is no clicking sound when you try to start it and battery is brand new, but i can jump it on the starter, my husband put...


If you have power to the small trigger lead on the starter when you turn the key to the on position, problem could be the starter or the starter solenoid. If there is no power there check the starter relay and relay connections. Could also be the ignition switch itself.
Only test after the battery is verified as good, terminals are clean and both ends of battery main wires are checked for tightness.

Won't start All the lights and electronics are working in the car. When I turn the key, nothing happens; won't turn over.


neutral or park switch maybe need to check starter wire from ignition switch to starter see if you are getting power to starter
quick way to do it is headlight s on turn key if lights dim then the power is going to starter
check starter good luck
