Ford Starter Solenoid Troubleshooting, Replacement And Function




What do you think about this video?

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

dan ackerley: If you don't get any power from the "S" terminal when it is in the start position, you can put a wire from the "S" terminal and touch it to the positive terminal to start it. most likely the ignition switch is gone.

john palma: Very nice video,i'm sure i'll watch it more than once.Thank you.

RebelDipper 21: I have a 1990 Ford Bronco I just got a new solenoid and I put it on and went to start it and it just made a clicking sound. can any one help plz ??

kurneify: hi i my mom had to replace the solenoid that mounted like this and everytime we go to hook up the cables the clamps fuse to the posts and shorts the solenoid any ideas

John Eversoll: I have a power drain issue. I rebuilt the Alltinater... what should I ook at next

Joshua Combs: Hello, I am hoping you can help...1990 Ford F-150 with 5.0 and automatic transmission. I've been having the much loved starting problems.
1st truck wouldn't start but would start when using jumper box.
2nd: One day while driving the truck died. I rolled off the side of the road and messed with it for about 30 minutes and it started back up but ran rough.
I was sure that it was the battery to the point I replaced it, it was reading low with voltmeter. Also, I added some extra engine and battery ground cables.
3rd: 4-6 months after replacing battery starting problems came back. Turn key on: all lights on and starter would thump. Used jumper box and it started up. Then no problems for week or few.
4th: turn key on and all lights on but was not getting what I believe to be the starter thump. I tried starting it about 10 times, cycling the ignition switch on and off. Left it in on position for about 10 minutes and then tried it and no problems, started up.
*5th*Turned switch on and wasn't getting the normal single starter thump. If I held the ignition switch in the on position for 5 seconds I would hear a minor thump/click but not the usual. Battery was putting out 12.3 volts but put jumper box on it anyway, didn't improve. I then bypassed the starter solenoid and fired up like a bear from hibernation. Any ideas? Solenoid? Starter?

Larry Stewart: 2001 Ford F-150, 5.4 V8. Died on me while driving on highway. All lights working perfectly fine. When I turn the key to crank, it gives 1 loud click and all power goes out, when i rlease the key the power comes back. asked around and got a few people who said it's the starter, got the starter changed and battery fullly charged at auto parts store. Same problem occurs. Any ideas?

Steven Ferry: Trying to figure out which is the problem on my 1991 Crown Vic. It just has a loud click when you turn the key. Sounds like it's the solenoid and also a few times its tryed to start on it own after the key was switched back off.

Bill Sikkelee: I have an '89 F150 (EFI) - It has a very slight lag when cold started, but fires right up. It's at a warm re-start that it wants to chug...chug once or thrice before firing up - I'm trying to diagnose the solenoid or starter - Battery hook-ups appear fine to me - It has a rich, heavy smelling exhaust - Could it be a fuel pump issue (or the dreaded combination or both pump and starter) - 1st Ford / 1st pickup - Any and all help much appreciated, in advance.

ky colonel: this video was helpful to me. I was having a problem with the starter not dropping out after start up. It turned out that I did not have a good ground between the solenoid and the fender wall. after many frustrated attempts to fix the problem I improved the solenoid ground and the problem stopped. thanks for the video

Brian Lucht: the vehicle I am talking about is a ford freestar 2005 SES 3.9lt

Brian Lucht: my car turns over but doesn't start. last time i had this problem it was a 20amp fuse under hood

Jennifer Green: I have 1990 Ford turuas wagon. it's won't crank over. all lights come on. how do I check if it the starter or solinoid
