Cool! I think we add this one to the FAQ!

Nick - you've already checked the starter SWITCH behind the instrument panel?

Wicks,


No Sir I didn't get a chance to... I've been so damn busy the past couple of days, and I can't fit the D in the garage.

I'm going to check that, and if it is the relay I'm sure they'll have it somewhere in town this weekend... But if it's the starter I won't. And I'll lose a hell of a lot more than $225 (that I paid for the starter) if I don't have the truck running on Monday.

Also... Is the relay or starter switch (kind of confused on this one) behind the center fuse box OR is it behind the dash ?
And does anyone have part #'s for the SWITCH and/or RELAY ?

Thanks,

Nicholas


<update>
I remember Mohammed mentioning something about damaging the 'flywheel housing/starter ring' if you continually try to start the vehicle when the starter is on it's way 'out'.... I called him back to get a tracking # for my starter and he confirmed what he said yesterday and sent me the diagram of the parts manual depicting the area. (I've got a parts manual at home but it was nice of him to fax that out quick, so I had an idea. He said that I'd be looking at around $100 for something, if I did do some damage. Hoping I didn't, the only day I started it like 10x was Thurs morning in the gym parking lot going home. Hope this helps!

Uhh, relay wasn't the issue - I'm talking about the starter SWITCH that is on the steering column opposite where you put the key. $40 special part.

oohhhhhhhh.... now I see...

No I didn't check it.

I mean, I hear the starter turning but the teeth seem to be gone 'cuz it don't catch'... So, I'm hoping I'm right !

Got a part # ?

Thanks!

Well if the starter turns it is clearly not the switch. If that is the case I would indeed replace the starter/solenoid package.

The job wasn't too bad, about 3 hours but I was also talking on the phone and doing a little swearing.
It's amazing the difference... starts first try every time. The 'old' one was a little larger, with a different part #, I"ll have to get the #'s off of it, and surprisingly the teeth weren't grinded down as originally thought, maybe the internal teeth or whetever 'inside' the starter so I'm going to rebuild it.

$225 well spent.
