I had the same problem. I took it to a mechanic and they told me it was the ignition switch.
There is an electrical problem between the starter switch and the starter solenoid. The most likely cause is a loose connection at the solenoid or the fusable link has melted.
You need to be more specific about your problem. If it fails to crank, it could be it is not installed properly. Shims may be needed to make sure it engages the fly wheel gears properly.If it cranks, but does not start, then there are many electrical problems that could cause this. This begs the question, did it run OK before replacing the starter?
I was researching this problem. After replacing the starter and solenoid, I still had the same problem. Someone suggeste the switch could be sticking. I sprayed liquid wrench into swith on column and problem is solved. Thanks to whomever makd that suggestion. I am passing this along, cause it could happen to you.
Does the engine crank over?
Is it possible an electrical problem can cause my engine coil to burn on my Mazda 323
Low battery voltage will cause clicks, and it is also possible that the starter solenoid is too worn in which case replacing the whole starter is best.
Most likely the selonoid on the starter motor needs replacing
Test your starter and starter coil and/or relay and that just might solve the problem i had servle cars had that problem.
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.
Did you follow the starter alignment instructions when you replaced the starter? Are you getting oil on the Bendix? That could cause the starter gear to engage slowly. It is possible that the replacment starter has a problem. Also, if the previous starter had the same problem it could have damaged the gear on the flex plate.
Personally, I would just replace the starter. Save the headaches involve with trying to get it fix. By replacing it you will have peace of mind knowing it wont come apart in the near future and cause any electrical shorts or other problems.
This happend to me before. In my case the starter was jammed and it stopped the loop in my electrical flow, therefor it cut off all power to my truck. Power windows, locks, radio, ect.. none of it worked. What I did was i removed the starter and put in a new one and that solved my problem. No guarantee its the same as yours.
A bad starter might make a noise. The starter could also go bad with no noise or warning. However if the starter is making noise then there is a problem that could cause failure at any time
The starter is what helps for only you to be able you use your car. Usually the starter is calibrated only to work with your key, and will send electrical signals that cause your car to start.
is your battery in good condition and fully charged? is your starter good?
their might be an electrical problem in that area or you just might need to change the bulb but i think its an electrical problem
The starter or battery could be weak. The weakness will cause the starter to turn too slowly to start the truck.
We tried everything the owner's manual suggested. Right now we are replacing the starter.
I would try replacing the fuel pressure regulator. That was my problem.
Starter Performance IssueWithout doing a "hands-on troubleshooting" of your problem no one can be certain of the cause of the symptoms you describe.However, it is possible that in the process of replacing the transmission, the alignment of the flywheel gear teeth to the starter got out of proper alignment.Misalignment of a starter gear with the flywheel gear can cause uneven stresses which result in great drag, and possible damage to the starter and/or flywheel ring gear.Have an automotive technician who knows what he/she is doing check the starter mounting alignment.
No, unless the hit was hard enough to loosen electrical connections.
Any vehicle in which the engine spins (cranks) but won't fire has an electrical problem with the ignition system (but not the starter) or a fuel problem. There are a number of good answers to the underlying cause of a "no start" on different vehicles in another part of WikiAnswers. And you got links....
a common cause of this type problem is corrosion at a connector.
No that's a mechanical problem, not electrical
