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.

Check the battery cables for corrosion near the battery terminal end. Sometimes it builds up under the rubber insulation. I would check the ground wire that runs from the battery to the engine block.

Have the charging system check or take alternator off and have it check the *** might be bad. Listen for the full pump to pressureize the injectors. One big thing check the timing belt to make sure it has not jump time.

89 mustang 5.0 starter problem


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.
