SOURCE: starter wont crank on a 2000 oldsmobile intrigue

Check your manual if you have it. I believe you need to have the key in the ignition in the ON position for about 10 minutes to reset the security system.

Car won't turn over. Battery & starter relay good.


  • NOTE: some vehicles have the starter relay and starter mounted together as 1 unit. Sometimes the starter relay and starter are seperate. When I refer to "relay" it could also mean the starter and relay as 1 unit.
Note: "starter switch" is not to be confused with "key switch", although sometimes they are all one unit. The starter switch is usually mounted on the steering column and actuated by a metal rod. On units that are all one unit, the keyswitch/starter switch (both one unit) will have to be replaced. (this is a rare problem, so don't get worried just yet)
1. Check battery voltage, should be between 12.5-14.5 volts. if low voltage replace or charge battery, and try to start car, if it don't crank with new or charged battery, move on. 2. Check connections on the starter relay, even the small one coming from your starter switch. if loose or corroded, clean with a brush and reconnect them. Try to start your car. Did it start? if not, Move on 3. Well now we know the connections aren't the problem. How about a click? did you hear one? If a click is heard, go to #4, if nothing is heard, go to #5

4. Well at least the relay is clicking, but nothing else is going on. The relay is working, so the starter must be bad. Replace the starter and start your car!

5. Humm, connections aren't the problem, maybe the relay is bad, replace your relay with a new one. Move on

6. Now we have a new relay, with clean and tight connections. Start your car. Does it start? If yes, then HORRAY! we fixed it. Does it click? If so then goto #7, If it don't click, then goto #8

7. So here we have a new relay, with good connections that will click when trying to start the car, but nothing else happens. Starter is faulty, replace the starter, and off you go, see ya!

8. So here we have a new relay, with good connections, but it still won't click when we try to start our car. This means that your starter switch is faulty. Replace starter switch and try to start your car. Vroom! finally done with this car problem!

  • List of shortcuts: if you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the relay and apply +12v to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. You can actually hook up a starter button this way. If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken.

I have a ford expedition el 2007, my problem is that the starter won't turn on although it works .. i need to know what's wrong asap plz

Click on the link.
Starter wiring, early production.
My info says your security system is starter disable, the security will also disable fuel injectors.
In the diagram, pull starter relay, use jumper wire between cavities 30 and 87, if possible, the starter should crank. If you try that, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set. Terminals 85 and 86 are the control side of relay. Terminals 30 and 87 are the load side of relay.
The control side of relay needs voltage and ground.
The load side of relay, terminal 30 is hot all the time. W/o testing I don't know the problem?

Is there a way to disable the starter disabler

Unless you have the Alarm built into the vehicle you can disable the ignition inhibitor by removing the power wire from the alarm unit or in many cases by removing the in-line fuse from the alarm unit. That will cut the signal from the alarm unit that tells the installed Anti Start device from activating.

How do i disable my remote starter on my 1999 Olds Aurora

i understand, that you do not wish to use the remote is the solution, to disable the remote starter.please follow the set of instructions,
  • There is a purple wire on the starter that has been sliced for the relay to be inserted.
  • This wire, is on the solenoid connection of the starter.
  • Trace this wire and eliminate the relay that is spliced by putting the two purple ends back together as one wire again.
Once you have completed the process i believe the problem is solved.thank you.have a nice day

Will the alarm system stop the fuel pump from working, when a new fuel pump is installed

Most alarm systems are equipped with a starter kill relay that disables the starter. Unless the alarm is installed wrong, it shouldn't effect the fuel system at all including the fuel pump.

Starter Relay

Follow the positive battery cable to the starter relay. It is mounted on the driver's side fender. Disconnect the battery first to be safe, then simply unbolt the cables from the defective unit, put them onto the new unit, then remove the old unit from the fender, and install the new unit and reattach the battery. Here is a pic of what your relay switch looks like:

1999 Sunfire Headlight problem

I'm afraid so. If the problem didn't exist prior to the remote starter install that is. Who installed the remote starter unit? If you did and it's all still fresh in your head as to what you did i suggest checking all the new connections made for the starter. Or just get under the dash and check anyway. Could be something as simple as a loose wire. I have installed 2 remote starters and there's a lot of splicing involved with them especially when you get into wiring the remote starter to activate the headlights for security reasons at night or just to help scare away would be theives.
