Starter relay, ign fuse, Automatic transmission? could be the neutral postion indicator. Listen under hood for starter relay pulling in. Check voltage at starter when key turned to Start. You can remove the plastic cover carefully from the starter relay and push it in yourself if it is not pulling in. On auto transmissions there is an electrical box that tells the ecu that the vehicle is in neutral. this can be adjusted by loosening one bolt a few turns and moving it a bit. If you follow the mechanical linkage from the shifter, you will find it. This part2 people. one is under the vehicle, ready to move the Neutral switch, the other is holding the keyswitch all the way to "start" move the neutral swich. If this was the problem, then at one of the positions the car will start. Tighten down right there and try again.

Sounds like your fuseable link to the starter from the ignition burnt out. You can replace it very easily. Its located either near the starter itself an will be the odd looking wire sometimes with a fat spot on it or it will be at the sfirewall closest to the fuse box under the hood. Have you checked the fuse panel under the dash for any burnt fuses? I'd start there.

Truck not starting, starter good but not turning over


You need to check with a test light that the starter has power when turning the key over. The best way to do this is have someone turn the key while you prob the power wire on the starter. If no power to the starter you need to trace it back. If there is power then the starter or solenoid is bad

05 300 no power to starter


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.

Changed starter...new battery....lights and radio work nothing happens when turn the key.


Starter Fuse? Possible failed ignition switch. Loose Cables on battery or starter. Starter not grounding properly. Bad starter Relay? Use Voltmeter check voltage going to main starter wire while someone cranks the motor if not power check power to starter relay while cranking if no power suspect ignition switch.

My chrysler lhs 1995 will not start I have power fron the battery but am getting nothing other than dash lights and door dinging


The first thing to do is make sure the battery is fully charged, then test for power at the starter, use a testlight to check for power at starter, the big cable at starter should have power at all times then the small wire should have power when the key is held in the crank postion if theres power at starter then replace the starter.

When I turn the key in the ignition the car won't start and the starter makes no sound. It has a new battery and a new alternator. What I can I do besides set it on fire?


You may have a bad starter, the best to determine this is by testing for power at the starter,also the battery is new but is it still good and fully charged, you may what to make sure battery is fully charged first, then test starter with a test light, there are two connection at starter, one is a battery cable this has power at all times then the small wire,this should have power when key is held in the crank postion,have someone hold the key while you test. if theres power at both connections then starter is bad, heres a diagram to show you where to test starter.5eb28af.jpg

Hi i have a vw bora which doesnt start but has ignition lights, when key is turned lights dont fade and there is no click from starter motor


check connections on starter , the small feed should get power when you turn key to start/crank position, if no power to that check the outputs on the back of the switch /ignition barrel,
if power to starter, then check power to back off starter on large cable (goes direct to battery) if power to both, starter u/s
if power at switch but not at small power feed at starter, relay/fuse fault, or if fitted cut out switch
