1998 3.3 wont start


Recommended Posts

Have been having issues for a week or so with it not starting.. When i turn i turn the key it just clicks but every time i turn it rapidly a few times it starts. Now i turn it over and it doesnt even click.. All lights and accesories work fuses and relays are good and had the starter tested its good.. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance

You say the starter is good, how have you verified this?

This is the obvious symptom of a failed/failing solenoid.

 

However, if you have somehow had your starter solenoid verified as good, then check for a loose battery cable.

+1 for checking battery cables. If the battery's good, cables are good, and the starter and solenoid are good, my next suspect would be the contacts in the ignition switch. I don't know if this is as easy on the R50 as it is on the WD21 but I'd pull the clamshell and see if there's an easy way to jumper the start wire to + on the switch. If that starts it no problem, start looking for an ignition switch.

I brought it into a shop and had them hook it up to their testing machine
