Changed starter and car not working still

Originally the shift lever inside the starter was broken and had to be replaced. However, I replaced the lever and the car does not start. I also purchased another starter to test it with the car and it still does not start.


Watch video here


If you fast forward to 36 seconds you can hear constant clicking. Is there a blown fuse?


I know one of the issues when I removed the starter originally was I broke the starter pigtail connector, so I had to replace that part to give it a connection.


I don't recall unplugging anything else underneath besides the starte

Wild guess that you need to go back and verify your work as far as starter re-assemble , battery clamp secure to battery post, and battery indeed charged to handle starter demands to rotate engine to start

Well I also tried a new starter and same issue. I will check the battery as the car has been sitting for maybe 3-4 weeks without driving.

Man, you've been working on this starter motor for about a month now and the car still doesn't start. I bet you wish you had just gotten your local AUTOSPARK to do the job for you

I think you should take a look at the pigtail that broke. Are you getting 12V to the connector when you attempt to crank the engine? You could also try disconnecting that connector from the starter and connect a length of wire to the starter terminal. Then touch the opposite end of the wire to the battery positive terminal to see if that makes it crank. Make sure the gearbox is in P/N first though.

Connector for starter wire beside battery tray on front corner,, unplug and verify source voltage on one side,, send power down line at other half to run starter..... the piece of connector that snap to battery tray fires the starter,, the free hang loose end supply power to hit solenoid and make crank

Would it matter if I didn't bolt the starter underneath the car properly? I just wanted to test to ensure it works so I just plugged it underneath and left it hanging when starting the vehicle. So it's hanging downwards, does it need to be bolted to be in a specific position first? As I didn't want to get underneath and bolt it back in unless I knew for certain it fixed the car. Not sure if the positioning has anything to do with it.

My guess is you need a case ground to make it work. Bolt it in the car and try again.

The starter body needs to be grounded for the starter to operate. If you really want to test it connect a jump lead between the starter body and the engine block, or battery negative terminal.
