Re: 92 tempo will not start,,,help
Starter selonoid. It's the little cylindrical thing on the driver's fire wall right behind the battery. About $8 to replace.
Check to see if the battery is run down first. You can test the selonoid by jumping the 2 large posts with a screw driver. You need to have the key in the run position. If the starter turns, it's most likely a bad selonoid.
