There are two SMALL wires on the starter. They are connected wrong.
it might of not been your starter to begin with. maybe a bad fuel pump
Wrong starter, wrong fly-wheel, Bad starter drive, worn fly-wheel. Starter may need to be shimed.
The switch may not be functional, or may not be rest correctly. If the vehicle was in an accident, the fuel pump or wires might have been damaged. this could cause the switch to retrip.AnswerI'm sure it is, as when i put it to wrong position the light is on all the time, if i put it into right position the light is on only when I'm starting, and the engine is cranking. Any idea what else might be causing this?
AnswerCheck wires on starter - maybe "trigger" wire on starter solenoidMay be bad starter? " " " solenoidCheck to make sure3 battery cables are tight and cleanhad same problem on my lumina hope this is not your problem.. security light flasded on off had to fix anti thef security system..forgive my spelling
It is located on the main bearings in the crankcase NEW ANSWER: The above answer is WRONG. The crank sensor is mounted in the side of the engine block BEHIND the STARTER. You MUST remove the starter to get to it.
Bad starter, bad starter solenoid, or the problem might not be the starter at all.
The teeth on the flywheel have been worn down, this happens when a failing starter is repeatedly used until it quits.
You might have killed the starter relay. Check it for continuity.
i think it may be the fuel pump; what do you think?
if its cranking but not starting most likely fuel pump
your starter coil is stuck , bang on your coil with something while trying to start then you will need a new starter sonner or later.
That is a broken/worn teeth on the flywheel or on the starter pininon gear. That is why you hear a grinding noise. It's the starter turning without being able to engage.From what you describe I would suspect that the starter is not fully engaging. I'm assuming that the grinding noise you hear when you try to engage the starter is INSTEAD of the engine cranking. If I assumed wrong, ignore the following:Pull the starter, check the flywheel for excessively worn areas. Most of the time the flywheel is ok, it's just the starter. If you feel comfortable working on the starter, just get a new bendix and clean up the rest of it. Any time you disassemble a starter you should replace the bushings and brushes. Never remove the starter with the battery still connected. Remove the negative terminal from the battery before you attempt to remove the starter.
It could be the starter in it. It may be weak or need replaced.
Possibly if the starter solenoid contacts are weakened as this will cause them to reconnect long enough to start the vehicle or the plunger is seized in the wrong position. Once you start tapping starters to engage them a replacement is on the horizon.
You hooked up the wires backwards on the starter go in and change them. That or you got the wrong starter.
Most likely the starter is "dragging" due to worn bushings. When the bushings wear, the starter will "drag" against the interior of the housing and barely spin, causing the battery to drain.
So when discribing a organ's position, with-in the body, can be explained by using the anatomical position. This is also important for surgeons so they dont lop off the wrong part. Although it still happens.
Could be the starter drive is not engaging or perhaps you're using the wrong holes for your flywheel. If you have a 153 tooth ring and have the starter in the 168 tooth position, the gears would not mesh. Did it ever start? if it did ,most likely the starter drive is broken, or the pinion ,or flywheel are stripped of their teeth. Bendix is broken, Starter too far from ring gear, broken bendix throwout fork.
I had a similar problem turns out the Alternator was bad.
Your problem is the starter solenoid. It may be a remote solenoid mounted on the inner fender well. You can easily check it by running a battery booster cable from the positive battery post to the starter side of the solenoid wiring (the heavy wiring). If the starter operates, the solenoid is bad.
i star my Toyota sienna van and hear some noise when i turn off it the estarter still egage, wha is wrong?
well you just keep on trying remember if the outline is green Right colour right position if yellow Right colour wrong position and if red wrong colour wrong position
The battery is dead, the connection is bad, the terminals are corroded, the starter is bad, the solenoid is bad.
You wired it up wrong, or the new starter was defective.
