Soemtimes a cable may look ok from the outside, but under the plastic skin of the wire there may be some corrosion or an actual break in the wire itself. It is possible to remove the cable and check the continuity of the wire with a voltmeter. If you dont want to go through the trouble, just buy a new one and see if that does the trick. Also, consider checking the ignition and starter solenoids themselves. Check for loose connections too.

How do you bypass a starter solenoid?

A starter solenoid can be bypassed by connecting a jumper wire between the battery and ignition posts on the starter. This will cause it to spin immediately without using the ignition switch.


Car won't start with key switch but will if you jumper over solenoid on starter?

Defective Starter solenoid or ignition switch. Ignition switch is bad.


Is a starter solenoid part of the ignition system?

The starter solenoid, despite its name, is not part of a vehicle's ignition system. It is used to send electric current to the starter motor, engaging the engine.


Can a bad ignition switch keep the starter engaged?

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.


Is starter solenoid part of the ignition system?

Yes


Why will a car not start with key but will start by the solenoid?

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.


Where is the starter relay on an 86 jetta?

there is no relay for the starter. there is a solenoid (switch) and ignition switch. the solenoid is part of the starter (small cylindrical shape above starter housing. the solenoid has the battery and ignition connections). and the ignition switch is where the car-key goes. you need at least 8v from the ignition to the solenoid for the starter to operate. use a multimeter. otherwise check your starter - battery connections. otherwise replace the starter. otherwise, take off the starter and inspect inside the starter housing. if the starter is clicking but not turning the engine the starter teeth aren't engaging with the teeth on the flywheel. get a manual to the car here: http://www.germanautoparts.com/Books/Volkswagen

How do you get power to the starter?

The positive battery cable connects directly to the starter. Depending on what type of vehicle it is, the solenoid is either on the starter or on the inner fender. Power for the solenoid comes from the ignition switch. You can run a wire to the solenoid to cause the starter to engage.


Can a starter solenoid drain a battery?

Yes, a starter solenoid can drain a battery. When a starter solenoid is not working properly it can actually keep rotating the starter after the car's ignition is turned off. Since it requires a battery to actuate the starter, the battery will eventually be drained of power.


Why will a 91 Lincoln Town Car start with a screwdriver touching the solenoid but not with the key manually?

Not to bash on the last answer, but, the starter solenoid probably isn't at fault here. If it will start with the screwdriver then the starter solenoid is functioning. It either does or it doesnt. The answer lies in circuitry back from the solenoid to the ignition switch. You could have a bad ignition switch or neutral/safety switch.AnswerDefective starter solenoid.


Does a starter relay replace a starter solenoid?

No. The starter relay is energised by the ignition. It in turn supplies power to the starter solenoid which supplies power to the starter motor. Have a look at the related link for some general troubleshooting pointers .

When will a starter fail to disengage?

A starter will not disengage if the ignition switch is stuck or if the solenoid has jammed. This will cause the starter to constantly receive power.

What is an solenoid?

he solenoid of an autmobile is associated with the starter system and transfers an electric current into the starter motor to set the engine into operation. When the ignition key is turned, current is released from the battery and travels along an insulated wire into the solenoid. The solenoid then releases a small plunger that creates a connection between two internal electrical posts, sends the current down another wire to the starter and forces the starter motor to spin.

Does the ignition switch control the starter?

It sends a power to the starter relay/solenoid to engauge the starter. Know that the ignition switch is not what you put the key in and turn. That is the lock assembly. The ignition switch is located lower down on the steering column.
