SOURCE: just replaced the starter on a 2002 Ford Explorer

Try the ignition switch to see if it is bad or, you might have put the starter in a bind when you replaced it, take a socket and a ratchet and find the size you need to turn the engine from the pulley. If the engine will not turn, the starter has it in a bind against the flywheel.

Well first have you charged your battery back up, if so then try to by pass the ingintion switch by just connecting the two main post of the colenoid with a piece or wire, this creates a direct wire basically from your battery to your starter, if still no luck you will need a new starter located more to the drivers side close to right under the pedels on the bottom side of the truck.

make sure that you disconnect the battery before doing the starter, that way if one of the hot wires touchs metal it doesn't arch out or shock you.

SOURCE: '92 Ford Tempo won't start.

You still have two components that need checking...perhaps you have a bad battery cable?! They do corrode inside sometimes making the battery hard pressed to send the current needed to run the starter. You may get enough amps and volts to run the lights but not enough for the starter.

You can try jumping the starter with jumper cables just to see if the works. You can leave the car in park and key off since the only thing you want to do is turn the starter.

Won't crank when warm


It is possible that the solenoid on the starter binds when the starter is hot. When you say that the starter was tested, was it tested hot?

Does the starter click when you attempt to start it? When you turn the key, the switch energises a small relay, which in turn energises the solenoid, which in turn applies power to the starter motor.
The solenoid should make an audible sound when it pulls in the plunger.

If you have a second person, one could turn the key, and another could gently hit the solenoid with a rubber or plastic hammer. This worked on a Dodge minivan that I had.

An image of the plunger is available at

I have a1977 ford maverick it has no power it has new starter and solenoid, alternator, coil, and battery what can it be


Hi Durwin:
I'd be looking at the battery connections, ground, and ignition switch, also the wire from the ignition switch to the solenoid.
You should be able to isolate the problem with a multimeter.
Have you tried shorting across the solenoid terminals?

1995 t-bird v8. Starter will not crank, clicking noise coming from possible relay behind right headlamp. Battery is good and lights are bright no dimming when key is turned


The Ford V-8 they use in both Crown Vic and T-Bird are good for losing the solenoid to the starter. Replace that first before looking for a new starter.

I have a 1995 Ford Taurus and it wont turn over? It doesn't make clicking noices. Will not jump and all lights do come on.


It looks like your starter is gone.Solenoid is fine that is why you have lights. Test starter by crossing over with a screwdriver the positive and negative posts on the solenoid.If starter doesnt engage then replace it.

20002 Ford Explorer - car will not start/turn over. just get clicking sound. battery good.


Typically, when you hear a clicking sound, it indicates that the starter solenoid is bad.

A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.

Starting 1998 Ford Crown Victoria


try a jump...if still clicking...then replace starter/solenoid together. the solenoid is mounted on the starter.....but they both come when purchasing a new or rebuilt starter .....and a better deal eliminates both problems.....o the starter is located at the flywheel area....GL
