Question about 1989 Ford Crown Victoria
1989 5.0 Crown Victoria would crank and start by jumping the solenoid switch.I replaced the solenoid, (the old one had 3 posts, the new one has 4) and now the Ford won't quit cranking when the key is released.I THINK I have all the wires on correctly. Besides buying the Helms shop manual, can I download a diagram telling me which wires go on which terminals? Yes I should have paid closer attention, and done one terminal at a time, but...
The new solonoid should have two large posts and two small posts.you cant screw up the installation of the wires on the large posts..........so try switching the wires from the one small post to the other small post..........(actually on most fords there is only one small wire)
