I just replaced a bad starter but still have an intermittent start problem. where is the relay for the starter located/ is it the brown relay all the way to the left in the fuse panel on the driver side lower dash?

    For an auto transmission truck it is a blue or gray relay just behind the charcoal canister in the engine compartment toward driver's front of engine compartment.

    turns out that it was a voltage drop in the wiring to the starter relay. I replaced the wiring to the relay itself and added an extra relay to amp up the voltage going to the relay itself. no further problems at this time. Now onto replacing the timing belt and water pump fun fun.

    Replace the inhibitor relay, this is more likely to fail, cost about $10.00 at Autozone

    could be too much voltage to the starter. or if you are striping it out, it could be the starter isn't properly spaced and/or your flywheel is messing it up. I was advised of this happening when I installed my starter
