Can a starter short out the battery?
Yes but not likely. Was ther a huge amount of smoke? is your battery a puddle? if not it hasn't been shorted.
Why does energizing the starter solenoid cause a dead short on the battery and is there any circuit protection - 1982 Buick Regal?
No,there is no circuit protection between the battery and the starter. If the starter is causing a dead short to ground, there is definitely something wrong with the starter. Pull it and have it checked. The switch that engages the high current is inside the starter. If the starter is fried and perhaps something melted to ground, every time you engage it you will get a dead short.
A new starternew battery good cables started yesterday but not today Starter motor will not turn Is it possible security system fault?
Why does my starter relay fuse blow as soon as the battery is hooked up on my 1982 Honda Magna What is the most probably cause?
1993 Acura Vigor It will not start when you turn the key you hear a click but it does not start this all started after you got your battery terminals cleaned and it cannot be jump started?
If a jump start will not start it then it is not the battery. You either have a short in the battery cable connection to the battery or the engine/starter or you have a bad starter. Test for a short in battery, battery Cables or connection. Trace where the positive battery cable connects to usually an electrical box on the inside of the engine compartment and put the positive jumper cable there while putting the…
1998 Ford f150 accessories still work with key out Later truck tried to start itself had to disconnect the battery Help?
Why is it that sometimes my 2002 Trans am starts right up and other times it doesnt crank or start and the battery is good.?
I am currently having the same issue. First unhook the battery completely. Then you need to find where the wires on the starter are connected to the battery. Detach the wires from the starter that go to the battery. Once you have the starter wires completely detached from battery you can start removal of starter from engine block.
What makes it spark you have checked the battery battery cables and starter but can not hook up cables without major sparks?
before you change your starter there are 2 wires on it the battery cable thick one and a plug in wire 70% of the time this connection is bad because the starter is in the the front exposed to rain water unplug it spray with electrical contact cleaner and clean blade connector on starter. be sure to pull negative battery off so you dont short anything g
1 disconnect battery. (the wires to the starter pack a whallop if they short out or ground unexpectedly) 2 disconnect wires to solenoid. (the solenoid is on the starter. the main wire from the battery goes straight down to the starter. follow this under and behind the engine to find the starter location) 3 unbolt starter from transmission. (there are two if i recall, maybe three) 4 installation is the reverse, but you'll have to…
Why would your 1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 302 engine not start unless you have it jumped and jump the starter soilnoid?
Starter problems can be caused by several things: Weak battery because of battery failure or alternator that is not charging the battery. Falty connection between the battery and the starter. Solenoid failure or bad connection on the solenoid. Starter failure. Neutral lockout switch failure. Bad connection between keyswitch and starter.
Yes First if the starter is bad the car will not start, if it will not start it can not charge the battery. If the starter will not work it can mean there is an electrical problem that will also prevent the alternator from charging the battery The starter itself CAN NOT CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS! The extra load on the battery can ruin the battery and that can ruin the alternator. But before that NO.
