may be on top of the starter and replaced with same. Follow the + battery cable it will connect to the solenoid
the starter solenoid only engages the starter when the key switch is activated. the alternator is what charges the battery which is located under or along side the flywheel
Never disconnect a battery while an engine is running!
The wire from the battery to solenoid is corroded & should be replaced.
Check the battery cables or starter.
Starter problems can be caused by several things: Weak battery because of battery failure or alternator that is not charging the battery. Falty connection between the battery and the starter. Solenoid failure or bad connection on the solenoid. Starter failure. Neutral lockout switch failure. Bad connection between keyswitch and starter.
You should locate and test the solenoid. Most have three connections. There is a large cable from the battery to the solenoid, from the solenoid to the starter and from the start switch to the solenoid. The power terminals to the battery and the starter are large and have large cables. The starter switch connection is much smaller. Turning the key to 'start' provides a low current voltage to the solenoid causing the solenoid relay to close and power from the battery cable to connect through to the starter. If that voltage is present then the solenoid or the wiring between the solenoid and battery or solenoid and starter is suspect. If that voltage is missing then the starter switch or solenoid feed line may have failed.
Dead battery? Loose or dirty battery cables? Bad starter solenoid? Bad starter? Neutral switch?
You need to replaced the starter or the alternator.
The starter solenoid is attached to the starter. Follow the positive battery cable from the battery, it will lead you to the starter solenoid. The starter would have to be removed to replace the starter solenoid.
To hook up a solenoid switch, the battery cable and the cable that goes to the starter have to be properly connected. The wire from the alternator goes to the battery cable side.
Solenoid or battery *Check the alternator as well. When my Camry did that, the battery and alternator both needed replacement. -andey78
Yes, a starter solenoid can drain a battery. When a starter solenoid is not working properly it can actually keep rotating the starter after the car's ignition is turned off. Since it requires a battery to actuate the starter, the battery will eventually be drained of power.
The output lead from your alternator is bolted to the positive lead of the battery at the starter solenoid. The grounds are both to the vehicle body or, in some cars, the ground from the battery is grounded on the alternator bracket.
Double check the battery cables at the battery and at the engine, be sure they are clean and tight.
check your alternator or make sure the starter is on correctly
starter solenoid is on the inside of the fender twards the cab from the battery follow the positive battery cable at the end will be the solenoid
The starter solenoid is mounted directly to the starter. Just follow the positive battery cable from the battery, it will lead you right to the starter solenoid.
Starter solenoid? Follow the + battery cable it connects to starter solenoid
Try an ignition switch.
Have the starter tested at your auto parts store. Sounds like a bad solenoid or bad starter.
It is attached to the starter, just follow the positive battery cable from the battery, it will lead you to the starter solenoid.
