I just bought a 2000 ford taurus. It would not start or crank over.I noticed the ign.key had a lincoln key logo. I bought a new pats taurus key. It still did'nt turn over. A ngs was hooked up to the dlc connector and data link diagnois results showed 914,915,pcm no response or communication.I started checking out the starting system. Check out the starter relay and wiring. I have power to the relay at the Lg/vt wire all the time,the 15amp fuse is hot and the Tn/rd wire is hot in the start mode.
At the base of your steering column is the ignition/start/run switch. This has failed and needs to be replaced. You'll need to drop the column and remove the kneepad to gain access. Be sure to locate the new switch in the exact spot of the old one. I ... Ford Taurus
I have three wires that run form the battery down to the starter. I need to know where they are attached to the starter.I don't want to burn starter. When I attempted to start vehicle, the starter and hot wire got hot and I only heard the starter spin and not start. 2006 chevy malibu Is there a schematic that can assist I connect the right wired to the right place?
Your positive the red wire goes on the big bolt of your starter - You should have two smaller wires - One is from the distributor and the other is from the igniton. Hook these two wires up the same way you took it off. If you are not sure of how the ... 2006 Chevrolet Malibu

Sounds like this wire should operate the electric fuel pump through the fuel pump relay.The fuel pump relay should start the fuel pump to maintain fuel supply to the common fuel rail and any surplus fuel will be bleed back to tank by pressure contro ... 1986 Toyota Pickup 4WD
I have a 91 Cadillac Deville that will not start. It does not crank or even try to start. A while ago, I ran the battery down, and then was able to jump it and it ran fine. Then, I left the lights on after a drizzle, and could not get the car to jump. I had a mechanic hot wire my starter from my battery after charging it, which caused the solenoid to engage, but the car would immediately die as soon as he removed the hot wire. Now, after replacing the battery, the car still does not even tr
Try turning the key to the on position and wait for the security light to stop flashing (usually ten or fifteen minutes) then turn the key off and try to start it. On some you need to do that procedure three times without starting but most will re-st ... 1991 Cadillac DeVille
I have a 83 280zx non-turbo which quit running. Heard pulsating noise at fuel pump relay (kicking in and out) under dash passenger side. Replaced relay, still does same thing. Replaced water temperature sensor, pulsating goes away but relay kicks out almost immediately. Can hot wire fuel pump to get it to start but this method is not very safe. Is fuel pump bad or do i need to look someplace else. I have been able to hot wire fuel pump briefly to get started and then car will run on its own

For a couple months now when starting the car i would have to turn the key a couple times before the starter would engage. the first couple turns it would just clack. Then i went to start it tonight and the starter just kept running. even with the key off. i had to pull the negative wire off the battery to get it to stop.i managed to take the hot wire to the starter off, reinstall both battery cables, put the key back then turn the ignician on and touch the starter cable to the hot post of the
It may be the relay. The relay can make a clicking noise. But, if your ignition is sticking, it may do this as well. You really need to check them all. If you turned it off and the car kept running, you have a bad ignition switch. You can try hitting ... 1999 Toyota Camry

I have a 95 Camry 4 cyl. I had the Distributor changed last year along with the timing belt, plugs, wires, and fuel filter. Now when I drive it goes about 7 miles and shuts down, after about an hour it will start and run for about another 5 mins then die again, I tested the wires going into the fuel pump and one of the main wires loses it's fire when the car stops, I ran a hot wire from the battery to that wire and can hear the fuel pump running, got it started again, put a finger on the fuel pu
Lets start at the beginning. The engine computer grounds the pump relay. The relay gets power from the EFI relay when the key switch is on and from the starter fuse when the key switch is in the start position. Do you know if the pump relay is get ... 2000 Toyota Camry

I have a 1987 chevrolet celebrity. A rabbit got into the engine compartment and chewed all of my spark plug wires, the wires on the distrubitor's wiring harness, and a couple others. I've reconnected all the wires properly and am getting spark from the spark plugs but it's not getting gas and won't start without starting fluid sprayed. No power to fuel injector intake, and the computer is not running hot. If someone could help me out, I'd appreciate it. I've checked the 4 fusible links in th
Hi, are you sure your fuel pump is running? I'm assuming you have the 4-cylinder 2.5 liter engine. The ECU and the injector are powered by the same wire as the ignition system. See diagram below. ... 1987 Chevrolet Celebrity

99 Silverado 4.8 Starts good cold (open loop) Starts very hard when hot, during hot soak. Turns over excessively long before startup. Also at times sets a PO300 multible skip, and starts dropping cylinders. Oddly, mostly on even cyls. Have replaced camshaft, & crankshaft sensors, plugs, plug wires, and checked all coils, all read same resistance. I have Snap-On scanner, and all sensors read ok.
I'd change the coolant temperature sensor. At different engine temperatures, the parameters for starting the engine are different (fuel mixture, ignition timing, etc), and if the coolant temp sensor is out of whack, the ECU won't set up properly to ... 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Hello, I replaced the starter selenoid on my 1990 F150, 6 cyl. truck because it would just buzz and not start. It ran for awhile. I went to start it and the rpm was very high. I kept tapping the accelorator and it calmed down a little, it ran about 100 yds. and just quit. Tried to start it again, but no power anywhere. I also noticed that there was a hot wire smell and the battery cable was very hot.
Here is a general instruction for changing the starter, you can modify it by just removing the selenoid after starter removal if you like.\015\012Disconnect the positive post of the battery cable. Underneath the passenger side of the truck you wil ... Ford F-150
1994 e-150 conversion with a battery guard system. not starting, no click at solenoid, just relay click. I replaced the starter relay due to the relay clicking but no starter rotation after. The ignition wire to the starter stays hot all the time (12 volts), but goes to 0 volts when the ignition turned to the start position. Any ideas???? I might have wired the relay incorrectly. I'd like to find a picture or description of the exact relay wire placement.
Bad ignition switch it sounds like. A contact may be bad inside your switch upon turning it to the start position ... Ford E-150

We purchased a 2006 equinox that was in a rollover accident to rebuild it. Someone I think removed a remote starter/car alarm. Can't seem to get the key to start the engine. We have taken a hot wire and started it by applying it to the starting wire to the selenoid switch, but the vehicle only runs for a couple seconds. I also think there was no power to the coil pack.(Had to supply power to that also.) Is there some kind of reset switch to push to restore the power from the ignition or fuel pum

98 chevy k1500 my keys touched a hot wire inside the steering colum while starting, sparked and key got hot while pulling it out as fast as i could. Now blower ,radio,and wipers don't work. All fuses are good,not sure about the relays. I dont think one relay would go to those. Cheked wires that go into key cylinder, they appear ok but do you think if burnt on inside it would only effect those 3 items? This is a tough on for me to diagnose please help, thank you. Joel
