Your solonoid needs replacing. Solenoid.
Not to bash on the last answer, but, the starter solenoid probably isn't at fault here. If it will start with the screwdriver then the starter solenoid is functioning. It either does or it doesnt. The answer lies in circuitry back from the solenoid to the ignition switch. You could have a bad ignition switch or neutral/safety switch.AnswerDefective starter solenoid.
take a screwdriver and touch the screws of the starter solenoid together
solenoid is bad ,have it replaced,but check for remote solenoid first some vehicles have another solenoid mounted closer to battery
Either your starter solenoid, if not check the neutral safety or clutch safety switch.
Sounds like a bad starter solenoid
to start something... start w/ a starting screwdriver
Sounds like you need a new solenoid if you have to do that
== == Try tapping on the solenoid(smaller cylinder attached to starter) while someone tries to start it. If it starts then the solenoid is bad and the entire starter solenoid needs to be replaced.
if the battery is good, it is not the regulator.i would check all fuses first,then check starter solenoid and starter
Unless there is something specifically wrong with it make sure the battery is charged and that it has gas in it and turn the key. Is there something wrong with it?
Turning the key sends power to the solenoid and the solenoid sends power to the starter. If the engine cranks, the solenoid is OK. If not then checking the solenoid is a good idea.
If the key is on and the shift is in park you can safely start the unit by engaging the solenoid with a short jumper wire.
Check for high resistance in the wiring to the solenoid, and in the battery cables. A weak battery can also cause this. If one battery is good, and the other is a little weak, the truck can turn over at normal speed, while the fuel solenoid doesn't move.
A solenoid is a type of magnetic switch responsible for helping your starter motor turn on the engine. When the solenoid sticks, the ignition struggles to start. When this happens, usually your key will "catch" in when you turn it to start the vehicle.
usually this means that your solenoid needs to be changed
If your solenoid is bad on your atv raptor it will just click when trying to start it
Check for a bad fusable link at alternator
i had the same problem.it was just an adjustment on the cable linkage under the shifter.i quess it slackened over time.
see my profile see link.
if clicking during starting, solenoid, but car should not start with a bad solenoid.
1983 fords did not have a computer, and you can use a screwdriver to short across terminals on solenoid on passenger side fender to start You need to cross the terminals at the starter relay that is located on the passenger side quarter panel directly behind the battery. Look for a small wire that just slips onto a terminal with an L- shaped insulator. Cross that with open terminal. Use screwdriver or something with plastic or rubber handles.
