Ron Gabor: I was sitting in my living room when my neighbor knocked on my door he said your truck is trying to start . I own a 2000 Ford F-150 and when I went outside sure enough my truck was trying to start and the parking lights were on would this be a start solenoid problem, the keys were in my pocket?

Fort the most part it starts all the time but every once in awhile it wont start but makes one loud click each time I try to start it but no starter noise?

Thomas Hernandez: I have a 1987 Ford F-150. Battery indicator light stays on while vehicle is in use. Have changed battery 3x's, replaced: starter, solenoid, alternater, and replaced + battery cable, am still draining battery. I'm at my wits end with this, could you please give me some information on what else might be wrong. When truck is jump started, it'll stay running for a short while, die and will not start again.
G pa: No one has figured this one out. I hope you can. 2001 F-150 4.6 Automatic. Symptoms; Normal day temps in 40's plus.. no problems. If it rains, before key is even in the ignition, the odometer has dashes across it, dummy lights are on. Put in key and try to start and it just turns over. Take the pos off the batt and put it right back on and truck starts fine. If it is still raining the radio is dead, no lights, time, nothing. Heat AC blower works fine. Windshield wipers won't turn on unless trans is moved to N, turn them on then they will work. They just won't shut back off unless put in N, turn off. When it gets real cold, like now below 30, it does the same stuff but also the starter will keep re-engaging, it cycles on and off, in P or N but not when in D or R. What do you think?
Todd Smith: I have a 1990 F150 with a 302.When I turn the key to the start position, I can hear the fuel pump engage and all the normal lights on the dash come on, but that is it. I have taken a screw driver and connected the two large posts on the solenoid and it starts just fine. The truck does have a manual transmission. Any ideas?
Papito Q.: I need help my father in laws 1999 f150 will start and drive for about 5 to 10 minutes than it will die after he uses a screw driver to short out the solenoid (I think) it will go on for another 5 to 10 minutes and it will die again
Msr roa: I have a '86 f150 really starting to boggle me, should be so simple. I turned it off one day and when i returned it just clicked , not once, but multi times, like it does with a low battery. I have a new battery and just checked the voltage 12.48v i replaced the solenoid, had the starter checked , was told it =was bad, but think they didn't know what they were doing, replaced the battery was still under warranty. I'm curious as to how to check the cables for resistance not sure if the voltage drop test will work or not, since i'm not getting any noise at the starter , almost like my voltage is stopping at the solenoid I suspect the ground or positive cable form the negative battery terminal and from the solenoid . I cleaned and checked all the connections, everything appears to look ok please help
Wells VE: The light green / yellow wire fron the relay is grounded at the computer to activate the starter on the 3.9 engine. Not sure what engine you have. What might work best is if you click on the link in the description and you will go to our website. There you can leave a question for the tech department and we can send you the wiring diagram. Or you can call us and we will help you diagnose it. 1-800-558-9770

DYAC: My friend's business did extremely well with adwords. He basically pay google to put his promotion ads on varies websites and the conversion rate is really high. I guess it helps since he sells gag/prank gifts and his ads get display on funny autocorrect websites. He wouldn't tell me the exact amount, but I'm estimating it is near the mid 6-figure salary. No risk no rewards I guess.
