and "crank, no start" situations as they are treated differently. This
video covers what I do when confronted with a 'no crank, no start'
situation and in this case it's a worst case scenario so be sure to watch
till the end.

Servicing/rebuild your starter motor
When most starters quit, they only need a clean-up of water or oil
ingression and carbon dust deposits, their brushes and commutators are
New starters cost hundreds $ and any parts could be hard to find. Servicing
them with a bit of creativity could save you some money. Brushes could be
somehow extended but the commutator segments have to be long enough.
Brushes could be as short as 5.5mm not 55mm, my slip.
Do maintain electrical separation between the baseplate + housing + 2 bare
wired brushes (ground side) and cable terminal + 2 insulated brushes +
armature coil (battery positive terminal side).

How to diagnose a bad starter, ignition, neutral safety switch!
The re are 3 wires or electrodes on all starters. One is the large bolt
that is attached to the main positive battery cable. One is the small wire
that is sometimes purple that is attached to the ignition switch "key". And
one is just a copper wire or electrode that supplies a ground/power to the
starter from the solenoid.
Engine Won't Start - No Crank Diagnosis (Troubleshooting Starting System Issues)
In this video I show you how to diagnose a no crank condition on a 1997
Honda Accord but the techniques shown here can be used on any vehicle.
A no crank means when the ignition switch is turned to the start position
the starter doesn't crank the engine.
To troubleshoot this issue I cover battery testing with a load tester,
solenoid trigger wire testing, and voltage drop testing with a multimeter
on the power and ground side of the starter.
I also cover how a relay works, how the starter solenoid works, and explain
what the neutral safety switch is and how it's incorporated into different
start circuit designs.
