Adding 12 Volts to the S Terminal Circuit to verify that the starter motor works.
On a good and working starter motor, as soon as this 12 Volt Signal is received, the starter motor comes alive and cranks the engine. This test verifies the presence of these 12 Volts and indirectly tests the Ignition Switch and the Neutral Safety Switch.
The battery's condition is the most important part of the starter Tests and the first thing that has to be checked.
There are two parts to do this test. Visually checking that the battery terminals for obvious problems and Testing the battery's voltage w
There are some main circuits when doing starter test. NO.1: This is where the battery positive cable from the battery is attached to. NO.2: This is the S terminal of the starter Solenoid. NO.3: The grounding point.
It doesn't matter where the starter is at, these tests apply. Whether the starter motor has to be accessed from the bottom of the vehicle or not here are some safety guidelines.
This is a brief summary of the tests about what's causing a NO CRANK Condition on your car or truck.
Before we start, you may want to know what are some of the most common symptoms of a BAD starter.
Do you know how Starter Motor works
To understand the internal and external earth of the starter, you must understand what the earth is first. The earth is a term of circuit, most commonly seen in the auto repair industry.
Commutator is a component of starter motor which changes the direction of current in order to allow the starter motor keeps turning.
