Having problems with your 2002 Nissan Altima ?

The starter isn't turning at all, but the lights, radio, and everything are working. I tried to charge the battery with jumper cables from a running vehicle for

Ford F150 New Starter spins just with the key in the on position but the engine will not click to start. Once I turn the key like I am going to listen to the radio, it just sits there and spins. The motor will not even attempt to start when I turn to the start position although the starter is spinning.


There are 2 small wires on the solenoid at the starter. It sounds like they are reversed. Reverse those two wires and see if it works. If the old starter did the same thing but worked before that, then the problem is probably the ignition switch. ... 2006 Ford F-150

94 Chrysler Town and Country won't start with key. Battery and cable connections are good. 12 volts directly to the starter solenoid starts the engine. All gages come on turning key to start position but only a click and no start. Replaced ignition switch and starter relay - no change. Traced 12V wire from starter solenoid to fuse box and the starter relay and wire is good. Applying 12 volts to the socket of the starter relay results in starting the engine. Is this a failure of the PCM?

I have a 1993 isuzu pup pickup and I was having to keep turning the key to the start position several times before the starter would finally engage and crank the engine. Now that does not work anymore. I can short across the starter solenoid and crank the engine but I am not getting fire out of the coil. Do not know if the ignition switch is making connection or not. How do I determine if the key switch is good or not?

But if i keep trying after awhile it will start to click and lights begin flickering on the dash. if key is turned to the "on" position, the starter clicks and all dash light flicker. after doing this for some time the engine will finally turn over and start the car.

Blower fan for heater doesn't work, and turning the ignition gets me silence. 12.3 volts to starter, multimeter registers 0 on other solenoid terminal when key is turned into start position.

With no previous indication, when I turned the ignition key on my 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis, it just limply spun over to the "on" position. The engine test lights came on and would not go out when I spun the key back to the "off" position, but there was no characteristic spring resistance you normally get when you engage the starter. I thought that it was the ignition switch but when I replaced it, it made was no difference. As I disconnected the battery to prevent it from being drained, one o

Ingnition problem Replaced solenoid, positve/negative battery wires plus new solenoid to starter wire. Starter is new. When I turn ignition key to "ON" position, not "start", starter kicks on and will not shut off when engine is running. DO I need a new ignition switch? Before I replaced all of the above, when I tried to start the car nothing would happen.


Sounds like it could be the switch, you can bypass the ignition switch and touch the two positive wires together from the solenoid to see if it cranks over. Be very careful make sure it is in not in gear. ... 1966 Ford Mustang
