Details of installation of a starter

1. Socket
2. Wire
3. Starter

Check without removal from the car

1. If the electric motor of a starter does not rotate at all at key turn, be convinced that the lever of the selector is in the situation Park or Neutral (on cars with automatic transmission) or press a coupling pedal.
2. Be convinced that the battery is charged, check purity, reliability of fastening of cables on the battery and on the traction relay of a starter.
3. If at key turn the electric motor of a starter turns on, and the crankshaft is not turned, the reason is the proskalzyvaniye of the obgonny coupling of a starter. In this case assembled it is necessary to replace a starter.
4. If at key turn the electric motor of a starter does not rotate, but clicks of the traction relay are distributed, contacts of the traction relay, the battery and the starter electric motor (or the crankshaft is hardly turned) are faulty.
5. If at starter inclusion the click published by an anchor of the relay, is not listened, malfunction of the battery, a peregoraniye of a fusible crossing point (the chain is opened), malfunction of the auxiliary relay of a starter, or the most traction relay can be causes of failure.
6. For check of the traction relay close a crossing point (+) a pole of the battery and a conclusion for a wire from the ignition key (it is located on the traction relay).
7. If the electric motor of a starter is started, the traction relay is serviceable, and the ignition lock, the auxiliary relay of a starter or conducting are faulty.
8. If the starter electric motor still is not started, remove a starter assembled with the traction relay for check and repair.
9. If the starter turns the crankshaft, but with very small speed, at first check degree of a zaryazhennost of the battery and reliability and integrity of connections. The starter will rotate the engine with small speed also in those cases if the crankshaft hardly rotates or in the engine oil with too big viscosity is filled in.
10. Warm up the engine, then disconnect a high-voltage wire of the coil from a cover of the distributor and connect to weight on the engine.
11. Connect in a positive pole of the battery a positive conclusion of the voltmeter, and to negative – negative.
12. Include a starter and consider the established indication of the voltmeter. Time of inclusion of a starter should not exceed 15 seconds. Tension on the battery at normal speed of rotation of the crankshaft should be 9 In or a little more.
13. If tension on the battery is equal 9 In, or exceeds 9 In, and speed of rotation of the crankshaft low a little, the electric motor of a starter is faulty.
14. If tension less than 9 In, and speed of rotation of the crankshaft low, probable causes are a podgoraniye of contacts of the traction relay, malfunction of the electric motor of a starter, the battery self-category, an unsatisfactory condition of contacts.

Removal and installation

1. Disconnect the battery from weight.
2. Get the battery from a motor compartment.
3. Disconnect and get the device cruise control from a motor compartment.
4. Disconnect sockets from a starter and the traction relay.
5. Unscrew bolts of fastening of a starter (the arrow specified the top bolt of a starter).
6. Remove an arm from the top part of a starter assembled with the traction relay.


At first partially unscrew one or two bolts of an arm, then submit down a starter with the traction relay then unscrew other bolts.

7. Installation is carried out upside-down.
