How do you trouble shoot a starter problem?

When you try to start engine is there any noise,such as clicking from area of starter?If you can hear a clicking , this usually indicates poor connections.To trouble shoot starter problem, the first thing i would do is determine if it is starter or solenoid.To do this ,you need a remote starter switch,connected to starter solenoid.Solenoid is located either on the starter,or on firewall in engine bay,depending on what vehicle you have. if you dont have a remote switch, you can short the solenoid terminals with a screw driver.When shorting, if the solenoid is good you will hear clicking.If you dont hear anything , replace the solenoid.If you hear clicking and starter doesnt work, pull the starter out and replace .

1992 Ford Festiva will not start and there is clicking but that's it How do you know if its the starter battery or alternator?

If there is clicking, that means the car has power from the battery so the altenator and the battery are good. I would suggest that the starter is gone bad. It will eventually grind away to where there is no clicking.

What would cause a clicking sound from a Mercedes 190E?

You have a 1995 Mazda 626 with 165000 miles it would not start makes a clicking noise when you turn the key what could be wrong?

If the starter is clicking, that's a good sign. Replace the battery and make sure you didn't have a drain on it. This problem could be caused by several things, but a weak battery or bad starter solenoid would be at the top of my list of things to check.

Check your battery terminals one is either loose or the grounds are bad.... On the firewall.... The clicking is the starter not getting enough power... No Clicking means no power or bad starter..Or you killed the battery(no power).. Google starter problems etc...

Possibly, but I would first check the battery and then the solenoid.

If your starter is dead would there be clicking still?

Start by checking the battery voltage and cleaning the connections to the battery. You can use a voltmeter to check voltage or just turn on the headlights and see if they are dim or bright (low voltage = dim headlights). Once battery is checked and your sure it's not the problem, remove the starter and take it to an auto part store. Many auto part stores will test the starter for free. The clicking can be a lack of battery power, poor connection or faulty starter.

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT with a starter problem. I do believe that it's not my starter that is bad it's the starter clyenoid. It will start up halfway then die. I have power to all else...?

What do you mean it will start up half way? If the car will start then it can't possibly be a problem with your solenoid. If the solenoid is bad then the car would not start at all. If you hear just a clicking noise then that means your solenoid is fine but that the starter itself is malfunctioning or that there is not ample power to turn the starter over once the solenoid has engaged. One other problem could be high resistance in the wire that connects direct battery power over to the starter.

Why would a car only make a clicking noise and not turn over when you turn the key?

The clicking noise that you hear is the starter solenoid trying to get the starter to run. Chances are the bendix in the starter is locked up. A good fix for a locked up bendix is a few good taps with a hammer. This should free up the bendix.

Why would a Integra LS 1989 that usually runs fine suddenly not start no engine noise only clicking could this be the timing or starter motor?

I have had the same problem with my teg. my mate has had the same problem with his prelude. I think it may be computer related. I have found that by turning the key very slowly just before it clicks seems to solve it. I don't undeestand why, but this works for me. This first started happening at about 240000kms Your problem is the solenoid in the starter motor. I had the same problem and got my starter reconditioned for $200au. starts first go every time now

Why does my boat makes a clicking sound when trying to start it?

You may also have a faulty starter solenoid or starter Your battery is low, or you have a bad connection in your cables. -I would try to charge your battery first, but if that doesn't help then go ahead and have your starter looked at! :)

What would be the problem if the starter would keep turning over even when the key is off?

There are a couple possibilities: If the starter has been replaced and the problem has just begun, check the wiring. It could be that you have crossed the wires to the starter. If THAT'S not the case, verify that the keyswitch is releasing the starter after you let go. and last, make sure there are no damaged or crossed wires between the keyswitch and the starter.

What would keep a 1986 Ford Ranger from starting?

Check the Battery to see if its fully charged, then check the battery terminals for corrision. Its helpful to use a small piece of sandpaper to clean the terminal and inside the battery connections. I like using a battery terminal cleaner which has a little wire brush to do both. You can get one at Autozone real cheap. My Bronco II was famous for this problem of not starting and I had to do this almost every month and it would start right up. Also check the starter relay located on firewall next to battery or follow the positive cable it looks like a junction box. If the starter relay is clicking when you try to turn it over then its a problems with the starter. If there is no clicking from the starter relay then try replacing the starter relay.
