The only things i can think of would be either the ignition switch itself is bad or you have a shorted s wire to power. you can check this by removing the little wire on the solenoid then hook up your battery and if it doesnt turn over check for power on the wire while someone turns the key to the start position and releases it,you should have power in the start postion and none in any other position.

How to replace a starter on 98 mustang


Start by unhooking your battery. Remove the 2 bolts that hold the starter to the engine block. Remove the 2 wires that are attached to the starter solenoid. Then remove the starter from the vehicle, this part is kinda tricky as there is only one way that it will come out and you have to really finagle it to work it out. then install the new one in the reverse order.

What is causing my starter to engage while the motor is running and won't quit until you unhook the battery?


Ouch! Sounds like the Bendix on the starter motor could have been damaged, or possibly the starter relay. I'd check the relay first. With ignition and engine off. pull the small terminal on the relay terminal Labeled "S" for start. It is next to the Battery terminal. (See enlarged pix on the link below.) Next, try to start the engine. It should not even try. Then, reconnect the starter wire to the relay. Have a friend start the engine and then pull the wire from the "S" terminal. If pulling the wire kills he engine, the you probably have a bad ignition switch. If the starter motor is still engaged with engine running, then I'd suspect a stuck relay or stuck Bendix. Since the relay is the cheaper component of the two (10 to 25 bucks), I'd change the relay. If the relay doesn't remedy the situation, It's time to replace the starter/Bandix.

My 1990 ford mustang lx with a 2.3l 5sp. wont start its making a dead battery sound when i try to start it i put a new battery, solenoid, and the starter check out great and its still makin the dead...


There is a starter relay--probably in the relay box by the battery. Swap the starter relay with the horn relay and try to start the car. If that works, replace the relay. If it doesn't work, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Sounds like the fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, or a stuck needle and seat in the carburator.

89 mustang 5.0 starter stuck on


The ignition switch isn't hard to replace. Take the column covers off and you'll have to buy tamper proof torx bits to remove the mounting screws. Just unplug the old switch and plug in the new one. The new switch will have new mounting screws with it. It should only take you 20 minutes to replace it even if you've never done it before. Check the operation of the lock and tumbler as well. It's an easy replacement as well. This one only should take you 5 minutes.
