How To Diagnose A Bad Starter, Ignition, Neutral Safety Switch!




What do you think about this video?

Michael Miller: wait you called the stud the ground that's inside the starter. I'm a 4x4 mechanic. so you're saying the positive going to solenoid won't short out when the solenoid closed? since the stud is ground.

starter will ground it self through casing into motor casing. that stud going into starter is the other side of power. the solenoid keeps the circuit open. when energized it closes a round ring against the studs. closing circuit. creating cummulator spin. causing bendix to spin and engage.

Sanford James: I have a 65 chevy c10 step side. Starts up no propblem, I drive a straight route to work, with no problems, as soon as I get there and turn off the truck, it will not start, won't turn over at all. but if I wait 30 minutes or so, it will crank right up like nothing is wrong, what could this be?

jay 80: great video man.

Frank Lopez: Hi ImRamro, should I do this on a vehicle that cranks but doesn't start? I was thinking since it cranks the starter would be good. Could it still be bad? And if I check and I don't get light,  how  can I be sure is a bad switch and not something else in the ignition switch?

Tee Thomas: great tool to HV..

Sandra Beeks: yy uhj loop uc

Dead Girl: got impatient with your irrelevant babbling

The Duder: Found my problem. It was the wire coming from the solenoid going to the starter. For some reason the wire decided to break in half. And I SWEAR the wire looks aluminum! haha Really looks like it.

I MUST take this starter off of this van to work on replacing the wire but no matter what I try, since the brilliant geniuses at the factory decided to put galvanized bolts into an aluminum housing and all, has not even come close to loosening them.

Have you run into impossible to turn starter mounting bolts? And if so, what did you do to loosen them?

It's my only living relative's vehicle and neither of us have garage money, otherwise I would have bailed two days ago and brought it in.

saron bennett: what would cause the starter to keep turning over slowly even with the engine shutoff and the key removed

Xavier Xavier: Cool thanks 😊 X

Idiots: My problem is the cranks, but doesnt start. The battery doesnt have any issues, and I just changed the serpentine belt. It's been like that for two weeks and I dont know what to do. Is the starter the problem?

Duthree Ciano: 1990 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz has been through 3 starters in the last 5 months.
Anyone know why?

Xavier Xavier: Ok I need your help with my 1993 F/S GMC truck at times it won't even click when I try to start it but if I run a direct 12 volts from my positive battery post to the starter solenoid it will start right up now I know it's not my starter so I'm thinking could the wire coming from my ignition switch or safety neutral switch be messed up and would it be best to rewire it with a 8 gauge wire I'm totally lost and frustrated please help I don't like using the extra wire coming off my solenoid and tap it on the positive post to start I want it to be working correct again please let me know what might think the problem is? Thank you! X

Kaibil66: This is a great tip... I'll try it now thx a lot.

Haley Lane: hi I have a 96 Chevy Beretta and my problem is...
when going down road the power locks will start locking and unlocking. the dash lights are off and the speedometer will not move whatsoever. when parked and shut off and key taken out the car electrical system starts seizing and locks start again and parking lights come on with out key in or turned on!

maestro66uk: Boring!

michael daurelle: I have a 2004 buick regal with a 3.8 it makes a screeching sound when turning ignition it finally started any suggestions? thanks

JH Fowler: Focus, Focus, Focus.
