yes if you dont remove the positive terminal off the battery before unistalling the starter or installing it the lead going to the starter will be hot.
Well you might want to check the wires that connect back to the starter. If you missed one that should be bolted to the starter it'll be hanging or stuck somewhere - most likely touching metal. If it is touching any metal it will always try to engage when you hook up the other end of the wire to the battery. -Sara replace your selonid
Double check the battery cables at the battery and at the engine, be sure they are clean and tight.
I had the same problem and it was a bad starter.
Follow the + battery cable should connect to the starter solenoid (relay) either at the top of starter or at the inner fender perhaps under battery
If you have disconnected the battery upon reconnecting it anti-theft system was activated. Your remote or key should deactivate it when you attempt to start the car. Also check your owner's manual for more details.
New battery needs a charge? Loose or corroded battery cable? Engine seized? Bad starter Bad starter solenoid? Bad neutral or clutch safety switch?
remove the cable from the battery, follow it to the other end, ground or starter, reverse the same for installing a new one,
Weak battery? Seized engine? Loose or corroded battery cables? Bad Starter solenoid? Bad starter? Bad neutral safety switch?
Gas in the tank? Voltage Regulator output is: ? Was the proper polarity observed when reconnecting the battery ... red to positive, black to negative. Bad starter motor - Any spark at the plugs?
check your starter wires there should be wires going to 2 different places on the starter, 1 large gage wire to the copper terminal and 1 smaller to activate the solenoid
It is located on the passenger side fender firewall behind the battery.
Its bolted to the inner fender on the drivers side near the battery
Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Disconnect the wires on the back of the starter and remove the bolts holding the starter to the bell housing. Remove the old starter and reverse the procedure for installing the new one.
Under the oil pan joint level mounted into the transmission housing so it can engage the flywheel ring gear. The starter is accessed from under the vehicle. There are 2 bolts that attach the unit.WARNING: The starter is connected to the battery with heavy high current leads that can carry dangerous currents. Always disconnect the battery ground terminal before working on or around the starter. Be sure the protective covers are in place before reconnecting the battery.
On my 1995 Ford Explorer , as far as I know , the starter solenoid is mounted on the starter and the starter relay ( which most people just refer to as the solenoid ) is mounted near my battery and has the positive battery cable connected to it ( a relay is a low voltage switch ) P.S. I'm not a mechanic / technician
The starter solenoid shows to be on top of starter. If you don't know where the starter is located, follow the positive battery cable. You may have to get under vehicle to get at the starter. I replace starter and solenoid as a unit. Now, if your talking about starter relay that is a different animal.
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.
The starter relay ( solenoid ) is mounted near the battery on the inside of the drivers side fender
it is bolted to the fender next to the battery find the positive side of the battery and simply floolow it to the solenoid. shout be a short cable.
Corroded battery cables. Other than that you probably need to remove the starter and have it tested.
Engine seized? Loose or corroded battery cables? Dead or weak battery? Bad starter solenoid? Flat spot on starter? Bad neutral safety switch? Bad ignition switch?
You might need to remove exhaust pipes, a frame crossmember, and sometimes unbolt and slightly lift the engine to access the starter motor! Check first to see if you have the Ford Solenoid near the battery, then check to see if you can get the starter out easily. Then proceed. # Disconnect battery # Mark wires and terminals on starter motor and solenoid for reconnecting. # Remove 1 bolt from the top front, and one from the lower rear of starter to detach starter # Remove cable connecting solenoid and starter # Remove the two screws from the solenoid # Twist clockwise and pull to completely remove solenoid # Reverse above procedure to put it all back If you happen to have the Ford/Motorcraft solenoid (rare, but possible), then the above can be skipped, it is on the fender well next to the battery. In that case, disconnect battery, mark wires/terminals for reconnecting, unbolt solenoid and cables, replace.
The starter on a 93 Geo Metro is located on the back side or firewall side of the engine. The battery will need to be disconnected and the cables removed from the solenoid and then the two bolts holding the starter to the engine can be removed. When installing the starter make the battery connection the last thing you do.
There is no battery in the starter.
