Bad starter, bad starter solenoid, or the problem might not be the starter at all.
Could possibly a solenoid on the starter going bad. Could possibly a solenoid on the starter going bad. Could possibly a solenoid on the starter going bad.
Could be a starter solenoid going bad, it could be ECM problems, it could be a number of things.
Check the 97 Eclipse starter solenoid. Also check the wiring for any loose connections. Since the battery and starter are goor, these are the two most likely problem spots.
Solenoid could be installed incorrectly. Could be electrical connection on the solenoid. Did you re-connect the battery? Could be a bad starter motor...or a stuck starter motor. Sometimes a light tap or two on the starter motor (not the solenoid) with a hammer will free it up.
Starting problems in a Mitsubishi Eclipse GST 1995 could be caused by a weak battery or an alternator that does not charge. You might also have gotten a bad starter when you replaced that one.
The main parts are the starter motor, starter drive gear and starter solenoid. Look up '94 Ford Escort LX in the RockAuto.com parts catalog and look under Electrical to see photos of the starter and its parts. Make sure the voltage from the ignition key wire to the solenoid is > 3 volts before replacing the starter. If a low voltage is coming into the solenoid then a new starter and solenoid will not fix the starting problem and the new solenoid could be damaged. Look up '94 Ford Escort LX in the autosparepartsusa.com i am sure you will get there
It could be a bad battery connection, too battery acid could have built up on the terminals. It could be a dead battery. It could also be frayed battery cable, a bad starter, ignition, or starter solenoid.
Most commonly, it's the starter or the starter was wired wrong when it was installed. More rarely, it can also be the keyswitch or even a bad gear on the flex-plate.
Could be the battery is drained or bad. Could be battery connections at battery and or starter are dirty and or loose. Could be starter solenoid is bad. Could be starter is bad.
You need to replace the starter solenoid .
Could be, a dead or run down battery, a loose or dirty battery cable connection, a bad starter, in addition to above could also be a bad starter solenoid
It could be your starter, or your starter solenoid.
That is not anywhere near enough information to make a determination about the status of the starter. Could be the starter, but could be the starter solenoid, wiring problems or even the ignition switch.
Sounds like it could be a weak starter drive or a weak starter solenoid
Typically, when the solenoid fails the starter is right behind. If you know how you could replace the solenoid, put in brushes and bushings and the starter MIGHT be ok if nothing bad has happened to the armature.
Yes, a bad starter or starter solenoid can be the reason for a car not starting but all the lights coming on. It could be a battery going bad or being drained.
the solenoid on your starter is finished, replace the starter......
Could be a bad starter or starter solenoid
what size fuse is it it would need to be a 30 amp fuse for the starter solenoid after that your starter solenoid could be shorting if you take the wire that comes from the key off the starter (normally the small wire on its own going onto the solenoid on top of the starter)then turn the key same as if you were starting the engine if the fuse doesn't blow then you need a new solenoid for the starter or a new starter if the price is right if the fuse does blow with the wire off the solenoid then you have a short in the wiring loom check the loom for break or cracks there is a good chance the wire is after wearing against the engine somewhere if this is the case tape it over and tie it back from the engine
Check for a weak or dead battery Check for loose or corroded battery cables Could be a seized engine Could be a bad starter or bad starter solenoid
If it is the solenoid just take a small jumper wire and jump out the two small terminals on the front of the solenoid and the starter should try to start the engine. If nothing happens then it is bad. Or you could take a volt meter and go from ground to the starter side of the solenoid and get some one to take the key and try to start it ,if you get 12volts and the starter doesn't try to engage then your starter is bad ,if you don't get 12volts then your solenoid is bad.
may be on top of the starter and replaced with same. Follow the + battery cable it will connect to the solenoid
Not to bash on the last answer, but, the starter solenoid probably isn't at fault here. If it will start with the screwdriver then the starter solenoid is functioning. It either does or it doesnt. The answer lies in circuitry back from the solenoid to the ignition switch. You could have a bad ignition switch or neutral/safety switch.AnswerDefective starter solenoid.
Dead or weak battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Defective starter solenoid?
