Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
Went to start car this morning everything battery powered worked but car would not crank. relay solenoid was making clicking sound,thought that was the problem so i replaced it. now i have no battery power 2 anything. vehicle does nothing! no lights no antitheft light flashing just nothing! cleaned all contacts and swapped out battery(known good) from other vehicle,still nothing.can anyone PLEASE help?
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
