Q: Truck won't start from ignition

asked by on

Can start truck by jumping solenoid. Changed solenoid and still won't turn over from igntion

My car has 154000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. If you’re able to engage the starter directly, it’s probable that your issue is either a damaged starter relay or the ignition relay. It could also be an exposed electrical wire anywhere in between these two connections that is causing the problem.
