ezobens Posted February 2, 2004 Report Share Posted February 2, 2004 I am reaching the end of my patience with this particular problem. My 1994 Eldorado will not engage the starter about 50% of the time I get in the car. This problem seems to get worse as the temperature drops. I have replaced the starter and replaced the factory battery cables with 2-gauge battery cables. I have also recently replaced the battery and alternator (not due to this issue). What happens is that I will get in the car (usually when it's been sitting for a while- but not always), put the key in and hit the starter. I will hear a click from under the hood like the starter solenoid is engaging but it isn't spinning the starter. I will hit start a few more times, and if I'm lucky, it will finally engage and crank the engine. This is very frustrating- I'm 99% sure it's not a VATS or security issue since I can hear the starter clicking. I have also pulled the starter relay from the left rocker panel harness and hard wired the circuit, bypassing the relay and it still behaves the same. HELP! I am ready to drive this thing into the river- If only it would start! Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
