1992 Mitsubishi Mirage Electrical Starter

September 28th, 2010 · No Comments

Starter is a conventional 12-volt, 4-pole brush-type motor, with direct or gear reduction drive. The starter-mounted solenoid shifts overrunning clutch and pinion into flywheel when starter is energized.
TROUBLE SHOOTING
NOTE: See the TROUBLE SHOOTING – BASIC PROCEDURES article in the GENERAL TROUBLE SHOOTING section.
NO LOAD TEST
CAUTION: Perform tests in less than 10 seconds to prevent coil damage.
1) Install starter in soft-jawed vise. Connect starter in series with a fully charged 12-volt battery. Connect a 100-amp ammeter and carbon pile rheostat in series with positive battery post and starter motor terminal. See Fig. 1.
2) Install voltmeter across starter motor. Adjust carbon pile rheostat to full resistance. Connect cable from starter motor body to negative battery terminal. Adjust carbon pile rheostat to proper test voltage. See STARTER NO LOAD SPECIFICATIONS table.
3) Note that maximum amperage is within specification and starter rotates smoothly. See STARTER NO LOAD SPECIFICATIONS table.
PULL-IN COIL TEST
CAUTION: Perform tests in less than 10 seconds to prevent coil damage.
1) Disconnect field coil wire from terminal “M” at starter solenoid. See Fig. 2. Connect jumper wire between positive battery terminal of 12-volt battery and terminal “S” of solenoid.
2) Connect a second jumper wire from negative battery terminal and touch terminal “M” of starter solenoid. See Fig. 2. If solenoid plunger moves inward, solenoid is good. If not, replace solenoid.
HOLD-IN COIL TEST
CAUTION: Perform tests in less than 10 seconds to prevent coil damage.
1) Disconnect field coil wire from terminal “M” at starter solenoid. See Fig. 2. Connect jumper wire between positive battery terminal of 12-volt battery and terminal “S” of starter solenoid.
2) Connect a second jumper wire from negative battery terminal and touch starter case. If solenoid plunger is pulled-in, hold-in coil is good. If not, replace solenoid.
