Question about 2000 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cabs

1 Answer

Trucks starts with keys in my pocket

Last thursday my truck would not start when it was cold. This past weekend I replaced the starter, relay and fully charged the battery. Now it starts without anything being turned on as soon as I connect the battery. I took it into the car alarm shop and they have completely taken that off. That was not th issue. What would cause the truck to start as soon as power is connected?

    Everything was hooked up the exact same way as before. It did start to do it after we changed the starter.

    We figured it out. We had a wire that was on the wrong prong on the relay. Easy fix. Just too much on the mind. Thanks guys.

When you replaced that starter are you sure you hooked up the ground wires and everything? (if there were any) you might have a ground off somewhere besides there also..

I replaced the spark plug and ignition coil and now it won't start?


if the car won`t turn over then it could be a starter problem if the battery is as you say fully charged. check voltages at the starter. it could be a bad connection or starter relay.

The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared.

Hummer h2 wont start


Yes, because as the temp drops, so does the cranking amps of the battery.

Will not start in cold weather. Engine will crank and try to start and started all summer but last spring and now that the weather has turned turned cold. It will start first thing in the morning and it...


Get your battery voltage checked.The cold weather will reduce the strength of your battery. The starter solenoid is trying to engage the starter but it doesn't have enough power from the battery to make it happen.If the battery voltage is low then get it recharged .The voltage of fully charged battery will show near to 12 volts.--------------That's it.

How do I change the starter on a 1990 volvo 740gl. On thursday at 3pm car started no problem. At 6 pm I got nnothing but intsrament lghts. battery and alternator are good. Could it be the starter and do I...


A friend and I replaced mine this past weekend. The starter is located on the drivers side, next to the firewall down some, alittle hard to get to btu not to bad. It will take 2 people one to hold the starter and the other to unbolt the bolts.
You have to jack up the drivers side of the car to get at the bottom bolt.
There are 2 very long bolts that need to be removed.
Before you do that disconnect the battery negative cable and the cables on the starter.

Allternator works. battery has 12.6 volt charge. replaced started last weekend. my 98 contour still will not start. There is no clicking when trying to turn it over. Is there anything else that i can try?


Check your relays and starter fuses. These can be damaged by any work done to the car without disconnecting the battery first. especially starter work.
