i have a 92 tracker with the same problem. from everything i have learned thus far the ecm has gone bad. I'm told it is a very common problem in these cars. mine makes a clicking sound under the dash when it wont start. if i spray ether into the intake it starts & runs for about 2 seconds then sputters to a stop. I'm waiting on a tip that shows how to bypass part of the ecm with a jumper from the coil to the efi. I'm told if that makes it run then the ecm is bad. supposedly its a 10 minute fix when you get the ecm out of the car

AnswerI have a 93' and experianced the same problem. My solution was the small wire from the starter solnoid was smashed within the harness after changing the head gasket. You might want to check it with a meter to see if it's getting juice.

Whats wrong when your car wont turn on at all and you can hear a ticking sound from the battery but the battery is in good condition?

Might be your starter Question: How do you know the battery is in good condition? That clicking sound is the starter not having enough amps to turn the starter motor. Check the terminal for corrosion or a loose power wire to the starter solenoid. Also the wires to the starter relay. Take the battery to a auto parts store to be tested.

Why does a 1986 f-150 pickup just click if it would not start and you replaced the starter solenoid and both battery cables and everything is hooked up as it was before it broke?

try changing the battery, your battery might be bad you never know, it might not hold a charge The starter relay needs to have good contact. Even though it may click, the contact is dirty and not good enough to transmit strong electrical power to the starter. Change the starter relay which is connected to the positive cable to the battery. Do not confuse the starter solenoid with the starter relay.

If you know the battery and cables are good, remove the starter and have it tested at most auto parts stores.It can be a bad starter, but it can be a corroded battery cable.

How do you fix the drain on the battery of a 1991 GEO Tracker when engine not running?

My tracker had this problem to. The battery would go dead in a few days or a week sometimes it would stay up 2 or 3 weeks. It didn't matter if it was driven everyday or not. A real no pattern to it problem. I replace the starter and it solved the problem. My year 93 has the solenoid built onto the starter you cant replace just one. If yours doesn't I would replace the solenoid then the starter. Good luck

Starter in your ford explorer not engaging you need to locate it and hit it with a hammer?

If the starter motor is spinning but not engaging it won't help to hit it with a hammer. The "starter drive" portion of the starter is shot. If all you get is a click or no noise at all, you might get lucky by hitting it, assuming the battery and all connections are good. This technique may work once or twice if the starter is at fault. The starter is located under the vehicle. You can follow the path of the positive battery cable from the battery to locate the starter. The positive battery cable will pass thru the starter solenoid on the inner fender then continue down to the starter.

What causes a 1993 buick lesabre not to start after replacing the starter?

My suggestion is to make sure that you have a good connection between your starter and your battery. Is the starter even functioning? If not, it is probably a bad starter, a bad battery, a bad fusible link for the starter, a blown fuse, or just a bad connection.

What would cause the starter motor on a 1995 Isuzu Trooper not to turn but make a clicking noise even though the battery is fully charged?

You need to check all your wireing from your battery to you silenoid to your starter you might have a bad connection some where. Clean the battery posts really good and the battery terminals. I fixed mine by scraping the battery post with a knife after using battery cleaner. I thought I had to change the starter, but that's all it was- the dirty post.

How do start a 1994 Chevy cavalier when the battery and alternator is good but still wont turn over?

First, make sure your all of your electrical connections and fuses are good. (battery cables are not corroded and cable to starter and ground are good) If they are good, it sounds like you either have a bad ignition switch or starter. You might try having someone turn the ignition switch to start position while using a multi-tester to see if you are getting power to the starter. If you are getting power to the starter, and it won't engage, chances are you need a new starter. If you do not have power to the starter, you might have a bad ignition switch. In certain circumstances you might try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is turning the ignition switch to see if it will engage. If it will, I would look to a bad starter. I have found that a majority of the time, a starter is the problem, not the ignition switch. Hope this helps.

1992 Ford E-350 diesel will not start - batteries starter test good but single click only?

If the battery and starter check out good and you are only getting a single click, the problem lies in the starter solenoid or relay. Not sure where the relay might be but the solenoid is usually where the positive battery from the starter connects to. There are at least two wires at the solenoid - the battery cable and a thin wire. check the remote starter solenoid usually monted on right side of engine bay
