Either the ignition switch is bad, or the solenoid itself.
I just changed them both. Also put in a new battery and changed the Neutral safety switch. I am getting power to the "boot" connection on the relay selinoid when the ignition is turned on. Anyone have any idea where to go next??
ANSWER.what kind of car. some have 2 selinoids on them . one on ths starter and one on the fenderwell.
replace the solenoid ,is shorted.
If you are talking about a car engine and battery then it is not the battery that is clicking. It is in all probability the solenoid.
Bad solenoid, or bad ign switch.
Usually battery or solenoid. If you hear a clicking noise, it is the solenoid. find the red wire coming off the battery, follow it until it connects to the solenoid, take off the red and black wires, put new solenoid in and your done.
If you're implying that it engages without you turning the key, the problem is one of the following: * a faulty wire somewhere, * the starter solenoid was connected wrong * or the solenoid return spring has broken.
Answer 1 - Vehicle Will Start When "Jumped"There could be several causes, but based on "...clicks once won't start starts when jumped.." suggests that there is something wrong within the cables or terminal clamps or connectors [corrosion inside that can't be observed] between the battery and solenoid, OR possibly a defective solenoid.
I would first check for voltage at the ignition switch start feed wire on the solenoid(be sure to unhook it first from solenoid). If you are getting power on this wire when turning to start. It should be an issue with the solenoid/starter. Some part of this assembly could have been damaged from the overheat. If no power to the crank wire, I would get a hold of a repair manual and trace the crank wire from the ignition switch all the way to the starter, making sure it has battery power to that terminal on the solenoid. Once you have that and a known good starter she should crank right up. hope this helps.
What is wrong when your toenail starts turning green?
Check the starter solenoid, starter ground resistance, and voltage out of thesolenoid when activated. If the solenoid is not clicking then the issue is either the relay or the fuse to the solenoid.

possibly the fuel pump relay, solenoid, or fuse
Dead battery? try jumping it off. bad starter solenoid? bad starter?
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.
It can be a defective starter assembly that causes this problem. There are two parts to a starter assembly: the starter motor and the starter solenoid. The offending culprit is usually the starter solenoid, and it should be replaced.
The starter solenoid, or ignition switch is bad, and either one needs to be replaced.
Could be a dead battery or a problem with the starter...most likely the solenoid switch.
changed the air idle control solenoid
The solenoid is not activating. Either the solenoid contacts are shot, the solenoid operating coil has opened up (burnt out), or the start circuit is not delivering battery voltage to the solenoid operating coil. With the ignition OFF, measure the DC voltage across the solenoid operating contacts (the thin contacts). It should be zero. Now measure the resistance of the solenoid control winding (lighter terminals). It should be somewhere from 6 ohms up to say 100 or so ohms. If it is much higher, the solenoid is burnt out; get a new one. If the solenoid seems good, go back to volts, and while someone tries to start the vehicle measure the voltage across the control terminals. If it is not about 12 volts, trace back to locate where it is getting lost. If it is 12 volts, then the solenoid is trash so swap it out.
key is worn... jiggle it whilst turning... make a new key
AnswerCheck wires on starter - maybe "trigger" wire on starter solenoidMay be bad starter?

If you mean that the starter keeps spinning after the vehicle starts), the solenoid/relay switch is not releasing. In the START position, the relay spins the starter to start the engine and should release when the key is moved from START to RUN. Probably needs to be cleaned or replaced.
this probablly because you have a flat battery or your start motor may be wrecked.
Seized engine? Dead battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Bad starter solenoid? Dead spot on starter? Bad clutch safety switch? Bad ignition switch? Resistor in Key?
