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

How do you replace the throttle position sensor in your 1998 ford explorer?

Remove the negative battery cable being careful to put it out of the way from any contact. You may need an impact screwdriver to remove the "old" TPS due to the fact that FORD has been known to use "locktite" on this particular part. Other than that it should be a pretty simple operation. After removal of the "old" TPS you should note the direction of rotation for the Throttle Body plate shaft when throttle is being engaged. Then when installing the "new" TPS rotate it a bit in the SAME direction the shaft travels then ease it back and line up the holes. You should feel some resistance on the spring as you do this. The two small tabs on the TPS should both be ahead of the nub on the TB plate shaft. Then just tighten it back up, re-attach the negative battery cable and your good to go.

What causes 2004 jeep to not crank eventhough it still has full battery?

start back at the battery, are the leads corroded? is there a clicking noise when the starter is engaged but the starter wont turn? are the leads from the battery to the starter in good condition. Usually any sign of a white powder around the battery or a lot of dirt is a sign of needing attention. The clicking could be a starter relay aor the starter itself needing replacement.

Why does your starter just click when engaged on your 1996 Chrysler town and country?

Low battery voltage. Either battery cable may be loose at the battery or at the positive terminal of the starter solenoid. The solenoid contacts are not making when it pulls in. The brushes are worn out in the starter motor. Whack the starter with a hammer while someone tries to start. sometimes that will jar it into working.r

How to remove a starter on a 1993 Toyota 4runner?

1. Disconnect negative battery cable. Disconnect positive battery cable at the starter. 2. Disconnect remaining electrical connections at the starter soleniod. 3. Remove the nuts and or bolts holding the starterr to the bell housing and pull the starter towards the front of the vehicle. Intallation in reverse, but make sure that the starter drive teeth are engaged with the flywheel teeth...
