Defective Starter solenoid or ignition switch. Ignition switch is bad.
It will not engage and send current to the starter. You will not hear a click or anything else if the ignition switch is bad. With your headlights on when you turn the ignition if the lights dim is it not the ignition switch but more than likely a bad starter. If the lights do not dim it is more than likely the ignition switch.
Probably not a bad ignition switch, but more likely a bad starter solenoid. It takes a lot of current to get a starter to turn, to much to go through such a small switch like the ignition switch. The ignition switch actually controls a relay(solenoid) which can handle the needed current to get the starter going. On a lot of modern cars the solenoid is built into the starter unlike older cars and trucks where it was mounted on the firewall between the battery and the starter.
Seized Engine? Weak or dead battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Bad starter solenoid? Bad starter? Bad neutral safety switch? Bad ignition switch?
Bad Starter. Bad Starter Relay. Bad Ignition Switch. Bad Ignition Module. Improper Ground.
it should be defective ignition switch...................It could be anything between the ignition switch and the terminal on the starter solenoid. There may be a bad ignition switch, bad ignition fuse or a bad fuseable link.
Bad neutral or clutch safety switch? Bad starter? bad starter solenoid?
Fuse Link @ starter--- Ignition Switch------- Netural Saftey Switch- Bad ignition switch, or bad neutral safety switch.
Engine Seized? Dead Battery? Loose or corroded battery cables Bad starter? Bad starter solenoid? Bad neutral or clutch safety switch? Bad ignition switch?
This could be a bad ignition switch, ignition relay, or ignition fuse.
Seized engine? Weak battery? Corroded or loose battery cables? Bad starter or starter solenoid? Bad neutral or clutch safety switch? Bad ignition switch?
No, not if the starter is engaging.
one of a few things your starter could be bad bad starter relay bad starter selenoid bad ignition switch
bad battery or cables. Automatic trans not in park. Broken loose connections at the starter or ignition switch. Starter moter pinion jammed in flywheel. Bad starter, or ignition switch. Seized engine.
Any of the following.... Bad battery, bad starter, bad ignition switch, bad neutral safety switch
Seized engine? Weak or dead battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Flat spot on starter motor? Bad starter solenoid? Bad neutral or clutch safety switch? Bad ignition switch?
Engine seized? Dead or weak battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Bad starter solenoid? Bad starter? Bad neutral safety switch? Bad ignition switch?
Engine seized? Dead battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Bad starter? Bad starter solenoid? Bad neutral safety switch? Bad ignition switch?
Could be,low battery, loose or dirty battery connections, starter is bad, starter solenoid is bad, neutral safety switch bad or out of adjustment, starter relay is bad,
A no start condition can be caused by a bad battery, bad connections on the battery, bad connections on the starter or ground and possibly by a bad neutral safety switch or ignition switch. Use a test light and see if your getting fire to the small wire on the starter when someone trys to start it. If you are, the starter is not working. If you aren't, check the ignition switch and the safety switch.
First, make sure your all of your electrical connections and fuses are good. (battery cables are not corroded and cable to starter and ground are good) If they are good, it sounds like you either have a bad ignition switch or starter. You might try having someone turn the ignition switch to start position while using a multi-tester to see if you are getting power to the starter. If you are getting power to the starter, and it won't engage, chances are you need a new starter. If you do not have power to the starter, you might have a bad ignition switch. In certain circumstances you might try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is turning the ignition switch to see if it will engage. If it will, I would look to a bad starter. I have found that a majority of the time, a starter is the problem, not the ignition switch. Hope this helps.
Battery cables could be loose, battery could be bad, starter could be bad, starter solenoid could be bad, ignition switch could be bad. Turn on the headlights and try to crank the engine. If the headlights dim or go out look at the cables or battery. If they stay bright look at starter, solenoid or ignition switch. The neutral safety switch or clutch petal switch could do it too.
Generally the problem is either a defective neutral safety switch or a bad ignition switch (not ignition key lock).
Defective ignition switch, or bad starter.
