Question about 1995 Ford F150 Styleside Regular Cab
I have a 95 F150, 4x4, 5.8L, extended cab, auto trans. I am having electrical problems with it and currently it does not crank but the solenoid clicks with key is turned to 'start'. I have tested starter, ignition module, ignition coil, neutral safety switch. I have replaced distributor, cap/rotor, solenoid, ignition switch, ignition cylinder. I am getting fuel. I wasn't getting spark but replaced the distributor and it started up. With the truck running, I disconnected the battery and put in a dead battery to charge. As soon as I hooked up the dead (low) battery (with engine running, key in 'run' position), the starter engaged and started cranking, trying to start the already running engine. I disconnected the battery and the starter stopped and the engine kept running, I reconnected the battery 3-4 times until the starter no longer engaged and left the battery in. I let the truck run for an hour and took it to car wash, gas station, etc and turned it off once with no issues. I later took it to lunch and when I came back out it was dead. I had lights etc on with the battery but heard nothing when turn key to 'start'. I put in new battery and even tried jumping it but still nothing, just lights on. I replaced solenoid and thats where I am at. Turn key to 'start' and solenoid clicks (1 time, not rapid). Will click everytime I turn key to start. Please help, I have no clue where to go from here.
The starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.
