The solenoid could be bad. A loose wire, ground, or the switch itself is bad.
Yes, if the battery is weak it will not provide enough electrical energy to properly operate the starter.
Did you attach the electric contacts to your starter? Do you have a good battery? Someone needs to check out your electrical system.
Check the battery cables or starter.
Dead battery? Loose or dirty battery cables? Bad starter solenoid? Bad starter? Neutral switch?
Double check the battery cables at the battery and at the engine, be sure they are clean and tight.
try changing the battery, your battery might be bad you never know, it might not hold a charge The starter relay needs to have good contact. Even though it may click, the contact is dirty and not good enough to transmit strong electrical power to the starter. Change the starter relay which is connected to the positive cable to the battery. Do not confuse the starter solenoid with the starter relay.
Maybe you have a problem in your main wiring harness. No fun.. Could also be an electrical sensor.
may be on top of the starter and replaced with same. Follow the + battery cable it will connect to the solenoid
check your alternator or make sure the starter is on correctly
If the car does not turn over after the solenoid is replaced, that means the problem was not the starter solenoid. The problems lays elsewhere in the electrical system.
In the car electrical system, the starter motor is the first stop after the battery, so the problem has to be with that.
YesFirst 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 batteryThe 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.
You need to replaced the starter or the alternator.
Yes, by a shop that rebuilds starters.
It could be starter, battery, keyswitch, neutral lockout switch or electrical connections.
If you have just replaced this starter then you probably have it hooked up incorrectly. If it is still the same old starter, then it has shorted out inside and needs to be replaced.
If you are 100% sure that the battery is good and all the connections are clean and tight, then you need a new starter. But make sure all that is okay first. does it have the right starter on it to start with? Have you been working on the engine and have it out of time??
In general, remove negative cable from battery, remove electrical wires from starter, remove bolts holding starter in place, remove starter. Replace starter in reverse order.
Electrical Systems do not freeze. They only work or fry.Have you changed/replaced the Battery to Starter Lead as well the Battery to Ground Lead?Check also the Engine Ground for Loose or Corroded connection will interrupt Current.Could also be Ignition Switch, Faulty Spark Plugs, Faulty Spark "Wires", Faulty Coil(s).
Maybe the car needs gas.
battery need to be at lease 14 volts to be able to start
The starter on a 85 Cutlass is replaced by disconnecting the battery, unbolting the starter, disconnecting the wires at the starter, and removing it from the vehicle. The new starter is then wired up and bolted to the engine block.
To hold an electrical charge, This charge is needed to start the engine by way of the starter.
COULD BE THE CRANK POSITION SENSOR
