Where is the starter solenoid on 1997 Mazda 2500 Mazda pickup?
Usually it's attached to the starter. Imagine two cans of beer, a 16oz and a 12oz, tape them together and you got the starter and starter solenoid. If someone told you to replace that, you should replace the starter because they cost just about the same.
The single click, that you hear when the starter switch is operated, is the solenoid making the high tension connection to the starter motor. If the starter motor doesn't turn over, you will need to check both the battery feed to the solenoid and the feed from the solenoid to the starter motor (this is typically a short length of braided cable). I have known this cable to corrode through. If it has, the easiest…
* Disconnect the negative battery cable * Remove the air intake duct and the air cleaner housing assembly from the engine compartment * Disconnect the battery cable and the solenoid terminal connection from the starter solenoid * Remove the starter motor mounting bolts and detach the starter from the engine
The starter solenoid is attached to the starter - Explorers from 1995 to 1997 , the starter relay is mounted on the driver's side inner front fender between the ABS pump and the power distribution box 1998 and newer Explorers the starter relay is in the power distribution box, in the engine compartment, a simple plug in. (Helpfull)
Either on the starter (located flywheel/trans area) or mid way between batt & starter if remote mounted (Done sometimes to protect from heat off of exhaust manifolds.). if you have 2 positive batt. cables, solenoid is in between, If you have only 1 long one, it is at the end of the cable on your starter.
Answer UNDER HOOD, CENTER, LOWER ENGINE AREA, MOUNTED ON REAR PASSENGER SIDE OF ENGINE IS THE STARTER & SOLENOID SWITCH ....ACTUALLY THE SOLENOID SWITCH IS LOCATED UNDER THE HOOD ON THE DRIVERS SIDE, NEAR THE FIREWALL, AND THE STARTER IS LOCATED BEHIND THE FRAME NEXT TO THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT WHEEL.
Make a jumper wire from the positive lug under the hood and attach to the wire that goes from solenoid to starter. (scrape off insulation and clamp it on) (remember to tape it up well.) With the end clamped at the solenoid wire, just touch the other end to the positive lug (I have his on the A6 and believe on the A4 as well.) The starter should turn. This will only test the starter…
The starter doesn't have a standard fuse like a panel fuse, more commonly it has the "fusible link" a medium gauge wire going up to the starters solenoid, you can identify these by mid thickness colored wires with a black "bulge" on them. But more than likely it's probably just your starter solenoid goin out. Nope, no fuse. Direct wire from battery to starter.
first test battery to make sure it has a full charge check all fuses, there is one fuse will stop vehicle from turning over using ignition key, try to start vehicleif lights on dash dim u know ignition switch is good with vehicle in neutral,and wheels chocked,use a screw driver to cross the poles on the solenoid this solenoid will be located on passenger side fender under the hood if solenoid is good you will…
