Carlos Prada: Excellent Video. Great Explanation.

Kirsty Rowbottom: Thank you this helped so much. The information was really useful in the proper testing before hand and replacement.

petty fan: on my 1999 expedition the solenoid clicks when I try to start it all the relays on fuse box in the cab and outside clicks as well and the positive wire gets hot can you help me?

Derek Lloyd: Hi there ... I have a 2010 Ford escape 6 cyl....When I turn the ignition I hear 1 click immediately ... nothing after that ...battery seems ok ... hasn't been an issue ... I pulled the two long 5/16 bolts and removed the starter ... but local auto parts place didnt have one in stock....The starter seems in pretty good shape ... could it be the sollenoid ... when I touched a screwdriver to cross the two starter bolts - you can hear a spinning or whirring noise...

RealmanPwns: I had a guy install my starter (before it went bonkers) and instead of using a heat gun or lighter to shrink the heat shrink plastic on the lead from the starter onto the connected starter wire, he simply wrapped it with electrical tape and then wrapped both the starter wire and the main power wire together (I suppose to keep the ends near each other) Is this a dangerous setup? Can the heat or power from the always on main power wire negatively effect the thin wire to the solenoid?

RealmanPwns: does it really matter which side the starter wire is on so long as it's by itself on one side and all other cables are on other side? (other than S wire'

Vq Nation: If you know something about it please let me know, I need help??

Vq Nation: I have a f 250 7.3L Why does the solenoide sound when I trie to star???

aluzy: i have a ford f150 1992 manual its been setting for 3 years so i wanted to get it running i bought a new starter but it won't run and i took it back and got another but still won't run i got my alternator checked and it was fine it would start about 3 times then it would seem like it was trying to turn it over but it just keeps on going I had to disconnect the battery just so it would stop

littlebear gaming: I have wached a video where they connected the battery starter connection and the battery connection and the car started, could you please explaine that to me?

Boo MF'n Wee: Thank you! 👍

Randy Hathaway: 1990 F350 with a 7.5L. I started it one day to move to mow grass. went out next day to start it, sounded like the battery was weak. Slow charged the battery overnight.went back to start it, was clicking rapidly. clean battery post, checked connection to solenoid and battery, they looked clean and free from rust/ corrosion. Now it won't click. It had been hard to start in the recent past as the engine warmed up but turned over very slow but eventually started. Can you help?

Bernard Shine: I have a wire coming off the top of the starter solenoid goes down the side of the motor and stops.If that wire is completely removed car won't start. Where does that wire connect

Michael Grogan: and all connections seem to be good

Michael Grogan: Mike Becker , I can't see that the flywheel is harmed , I've went through another starter already. replaced the solenoid yesterday , no luck

Michael Grogan: my starter grinds to start the engine , in a 1987 ford Ranger , 2.9 liter v6 . starter only lasted a few days when replaced , cranks fine for a day or 2 when replaced , but starts grinding and eventually doesn't even engage the flywheel, just spins . I have already went through 3 starters in a 2 week's time
