Ok, in what way are you getting no power to the starter? Do you have power to the headlights? Do they dim a bunch when you try to start the vehicle? Is the starter clicking but not starting? Will the vehicle start if you jump start it? All electrical problems of this nature should start with a load test on the battery, even if it seems fairly new. If it tests good, the next thing I would check is to see if the headlights dim when you try to start it. If they dim I would check the cable connections to the battery, then have the starter tested. If they don't dim you could either have a problem with the ignition switch side of things or the starter solenoid.
3 reasons either the starter is not getting power from the solenoid, solenoid is not getting power from the battery or starter is burned up.
Remove starter and bench test See if you are getting power to starter
You should check the battery if it is good. Try checking to see if the power is getting to the starter when you push the button if not it might be a falty relay .If power is getting to the starter (12 volt . If less check power going into your relay ) starter may need to be replaced or repared.
the starter isn't getting power or the battery is dead. do some tracing of the power and see where it isn't getting juice
Check your Starter relay to make sure it is getting power if it is cceck to see if the decoder is getting power if both are getting power follow the starter wire to the starter selinoid if it is getting power then check all fuses and ground wires to make sure that it has good connection be sure to check the maix fuses also
Does the engine crank over?
Sounds like a defective starter, but check your battery cables and connections. Make sure you are getting power at the starter when you turn the key to the start position. Could be a relay too.
The best way to tell if a starter is getting power is to use a volt meter. Put the positive lead of the volt meter to the largest ( power ) cable attached to the stater and the ground lead to the chassis. Have a friend turn the key to the start position and see if you get at least 12 volts. If the starter clicks it is getting power and chances are your starter solenoid has failed. Before doing all this it is best to inspect the grounds between your engine and the chassis. Make sure the ends and the places where they are mounted are clean. Make sure the grounds are not excessively frayed as lack of ground will cause the starter to turn slow or not at all.
If the lights in the car come on, then at least part of the system is getting power. Check the battery connections again. Then check the starter solenoid and starter to insure that they are getting power and are working properly.
Check the wiring for the starter, and the starter solenoid for problems. One of these could stop power from getting to the starter.
If the starter does not turn then it could either be bad or not getting power. If a volt meter can not be used to determine that voltage is present, then the starter can be pulled and taken to be tested.
Check to see if power is getting to the starter. If it is not check the solenoid contacts in it may be burned and not letting the power threw . If power is making it to the starter it maybe your brushes are in need of replacement or (dirt in starter ,broken magnets ,bearings or burnt wires).
The most important consideration when purchasing a jump starter is power. How much power is the jump starter getting to the battery? Many manufacturers only offer battery booster packs that have only 900 peak amps and maybe 200 cranking amps.
get a new battery Check the battery if it is OK. Then check solenoid to see if it is engaging .Check if the power is getting to the starter if power is at starter the starter may have bad brushes or something is binding the starter ( dirt ,bad bearings, broken magnets or burnt wires ). Starter spins the drive gear is probably in need of replacement.
Starter may have gotten wet and frozen or shorted. Check wiring to starter See if you are getting power to starter
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...
Sounds like the starter is defective. Remove the starter and have it bench tested.
Have you checked the ignition switch on the column . I had to replace the one in my 1977 Trans Am.
Heavy corrosion will prevent enough power from getting to the starter to spin fast enough to start the engine.
someone help me the car has a new battery and starter it wont turn over its not getting any power to the starter. we have changed the wire now to.
No. The starter relay is energised by the ignition. It in turn supplies power to the starter solenoid which supplies power to the starter motor. Have a look at the related link for some general troubleshooting pointers .
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.
the starter relay.
The starter is bad or the engine is locked up. Make sure the starter getting power then turn the engine by hand.
disconnect power from battery, remove wires connected to starter, remove bolts from starter (usually 2), remove starter.
