Have someone hold the key in the start position as you use a 12 volt test light at the trigger wire connector(small one) on the starter to see if there is power when the key is in the start position. If there is power, you need a starter, provided that there is sufficient power from the battery to turn the starter. If there is no power, you have a problem elsewhere. It could be wiring, ignition switch, power supply to the ignition switch, or transmission range(TR) sensor. A TR sensor takes the place of a neutral safety switch on the automatic transmission. If it is a manual, we have a clutch pedal position switch.
The starter is just a DC motor so the motor gets dirty inside or the armature and brushes wear. If the battery is good and yet you just hear a click or nothing or even the starter spinning, the next most likely cause is the starter motor. They are cheap to replace yourself, though the job is a little tight. See wikianswer on 1993 Ford Escort for the process.
first test battery to make sure it has a full charge check all fuses, there is one fuse will stop vehicle from turning over using ignition key, try to start vehicleif lights on dash dim u know ignition switch is good with vehicle in neutral,and wheels chocked,use a screw driver to cross the poles on the solenoid this solenoid will be located on passenger side fender under the hood if solenoid is good you will hear it clicking,and should turn starter over if starter is good if starter didnt work get under vehicle and use screwdriver to short poles on starter if solenoid on fender is bad and starter is good starter will work if starter is bad starter will not work then remove starter from vehicle have it bench tested and most likely throw in a new starter
This applies to any car.The most likely problems are;Defective Starter MotorDefective Starter SolenoidDefective Ignition SwitchDefective wiring between the above.Also check the neutral switch on the transmission and the connections to it. The starter will not turn over unless the switch is properly engaged.
If the starter is clicking when you turn the key then the relay is not the problem, more likely is the battery and starter wire connections. Take them off and clean them before putting them back on ( have the battery checked ) corrosion will cause the symptom you described, however there should be a starter relay in the engine compartment fuse panel. If the truck is a standard transmission, it could be the Neutral safety switch, which is located under the clutch pedal. However, most likely it is the solenoid on the starter, I just had the same problem, time for a new starter.
I had to do this once. Look behind the engine by the firewall, you will see the starter, you will see a big wire and a small wire, unplug the small wire from the starter, get yourself a long peice of electrical wire, wrap one end around the small terminal on the starter, then turn the ignition on, then touch the other end on the positive battery cable then the engine should turn over, if it doesnt then you need a new starter.If it does most likely you need a new ignition switch or relay.
