View Full Version : Starter works but doesn't.

Ok so when I turn the key to turn the starter over nothing happens. So I checked the three connections on the starter all of them are secure. Including the connections on the battery hot wire. But I can block the wheel put it in neutral, and take a screw driver and cross the connections on the starter, and it will turn the motor. Healthily might I add. Anyone know what could be going on? Also. I'm pretty sure I hear the starter relay click when I turn the key. I have been "roll starting" it to drive here lately lol.

your starter solenoid isnt making a good connection inside itself, jumping the terminals with a screw driver just bypasses that, get a new solenoid and you will be good to go

Check your ignition switch.

Thanks guys I'll check the ignition wires first. Then get a solenoid if I dont see anything wrong.

Well guys it was neither. lol Got to looking around under the dash.. It was the damn plastic piece on the clutch that depresses the button. lol I put a bolt through it and put a nut on the back. Problem solved.. Thanks for all your input guys!
