Sounds like a connection problem/error. When you replaced the starter solenoid, do you remember how many wires you disconnected and reconnected?

Was there any indication ( sparks, etc) of accidentally causing a short when you replaced the solenoid?

Your initial problem of no start but hearing the click sound is almost a sure fire indication that the starter is NG. If the solenoid clicks, that means that it is applying 12 volts to the starter.

hope this helps Good luck Loringh

No power to fuel pump on 96 ford explorer


Check the fuel pump relay. It's located in the relay box under the hood on the drivers side.

Did you check the fuel pump relay ? The relay gets power from a fuse and also from the PCM relay. The computer grounds the relay to turn it on for 3 seconds when you turn the key on, then only after the computer "sees" RPM or oil pressure.

95 ford explorer cranks but wont start had this change the relay,fuelpump,sarter,altnator ,battery, wait then it starts


What could cause a 95 Ford Explorer to turn over but not start? It could be a lot of things causing it not to start. If it is turning over it could be the alternator or carburetor causing it not to start. An alternator is an electromechanical device that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy in the form of alternating current. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If your starter don't do anything (crank) like a dead battery, then its going to be your starter, if it cranks but don't start the engine, then it could be your eec relay.

Engine will crank, but will not start.


I just had this same problem on my 96 Explorer XLT. Very random when it would do it, sometimes everyday for a week or nothing for 6 months. What I found was that when this happened, when I turned the key to the on position without starting the vehicle. That the check engine light should come on and if it doesn't, that means the the computer isn't powering up. What I had to do was leave the key in the on position and pop the hood, and on the passenger side of the engine compartment, there is a power distribution block, in there is a relay for the EEC Power Relay. Now with the key on I wiggled this relay and you can hear systems under the hood kick in. Relays turning on, etc nothing actually starting to scare you though. But this lets you know that the computer is alive and running. You should now be able to turn the key to the start position and the vehicle should no crank over, but now fire and run. It took me quite a while to figure this out because it was so intermittent. In the end, I replaced the relay for the EEC Power and everything has been fine since. When the new relay was in there I could not replicate this fault as I could with the bad relay. Hope this helps you.
