Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought a new starter and ignition switch and a
starter solenoid... But it won't start... Will start
when I jump the starter solenoid... Why

3 Answers


Need to check and see if 12 Volts is coming threw the small wire that activates the solenoid when you turn the key to start. May be a starter relay, or the ignition switch not adjusted just right.


Wires hooked to distributor?


theres a rod on top of the steering colem that breaks so it can't push enough to activate the starter to crank over
