Blowing 40 amp fuse when trying to start


check that the small wire on the solenoid is not touching the big terminal on the starter solenoid or is not shorting out any where .

I have an 93 gmc yukon brand new starter and battery wont start or even click


id make sure the fuses and relays didn't pop for the starter while installing as if it was intstalled wit the battery still connected it could have arched it causing them to blow. then id make sure the battery was good and so was the alternator first thing. second, make sure all ur connections are good ie battery ground as well as wires on the starters solinoid.

I have an '04 Sebring Convertible with the 2.7L V-6 engine. It has been running fine with no problems for over a year since I bought it. Then the other day, I had it detailed and drove it home...


This happens all too often on the Chryslers, the starter fuse blowing. The cause in most cases is the starter solenoid. I recommend replacing the starter and the solenoid when this happens, to keep from having to do it again a few months later, I hope this helps.

I changed the alternator on my 1996 grand am gt and the car ran good for 5 min. then the lights started to go on and off and the car shut off. now it wont start.


Could be a number of things. First I would check electrical. When you say the car won;t start do you mean it has no electrical power? (no lights, radio, starter doesn't crank etc). If so then the main power wire off the alternator may have touched ground and you blew the maxi fuse or damaged the wire. Did you see or smell any smoke coming from the engine area? That is where I would look first. Don't just change a fuse without finding what caused it to blow. Let me know so more info and we will figure it out.

2006 Jeep Wrangler won't start


First, make sure you can turn the engine by hand. If you can't then the starter can't turn it either. Have someone else turn the key and look for the source of the click...may be a relay. Go over the starting circuit with a volt meter. Check for power at the starter main terminal and then with the key turned to "start" check for power at the trigger terminal on the starter. Check battery voltage and check relay operation.
You have a neutral safety switch on the transmission if its an automatic and a clutch switch if it's a stick. Check them as well. Make sure battery grounding on fender and block are also clean and secure.

Relays will click when they're getting power to initiate them. They may not be getting power from their main source. Check under hood for a set of fusible links, if all your small fuses in fuse box are good.
