Use a pair of pliers or similar tool to jump across the trigger(small) wire and the large cable connected to the starter

jump out the solenoid or relay. This will close the circuit for the high current.

If the starter is bad no. Check battery, starter and solenoid to be sure which is bad.

jump the starter solnoid, if it will crank , turn key on and jump again, if it starts then key switch is ok it would be the starter solnoid that's bad,

The most important consideration when purchasing a jump starter is power. How much power is the jump starter getting to the battery? Many manufacturers only offer battery booster packs that have only 900 peak amps and maybe 200 cranking amps.

The starter relay or solenoid is probably the problem.

The larger the wire diameter the better. Purchase one with at least an 8 gage wire. Remember the larger the number the smaller the wire. For a good all round jump starter that has been getting rave reviews I recommend the Jump & Carry Jump Starter look at the reviews:

Aplly battery voltage to it, it should jump, engage.

Yes, it is possible to jump start a car with a bad starter, but not for very long. The car will eventually die again. It is best to take it to an accredited mechanic and have a professional fix the starter on your car.

You want to bypass the ignition system and jump the solenoid to see if the starter engages. I f it does, it is not the starter,if it doesn't, than it is the stater. You can also jump power straight from the batt to the pos cable of the starter to see if it engages.

Starter solenoid? Jump the trigger wire (small) and the cable that runs to the starter

Starter motor problems, charging system problems, wiring and connection problems between battery, alternator and starter. To many possiblities to list. If the battery is still charged and you need to jump the car to get it to start you have a bad starter. Now you say how can that be? it starts when its jumped? Correct the starter is drawing too much power"amps" and having a second battery "the jump" appx doubles the amount of amps to the starter allowing it to start. Replace the starter and problem will go away. Besides it wont take too long before a jump wont allow it to start.

First make sure you are getting 12amps at the solenoid and starter. If so, run a wire from solenoid to hot side of starter. It should turn over (assuming battery is strong). You can also jump straight from battery or jump box to starter. Make sure you have a good ground. I replaced starter on my 140hp Johnson for like $50 with a new omc starter from amazon.

Jump starters are used to jump start a car when the engine will not start by itself. It is a common reason for car breakdowns and all breakdown companies have jump starter tools.

Follow the + battery cable -jump the small terminal and the wire to the starter (Make sure in neutral) Starter should operate

A battery jump starter works by taking the charge from another battery, such as in another car, and passing it to the dead battery. When the charge is sufficient in starting the dead battery, it should then start charging itself as the engine runs.
