    What happens when you turn the ignition switch?

    Do you hear anything? Like a click each time you turn the key?

    Are there any other symptoms prior to no crank that you can relate to this problem?

Sometimes my 1997 Ford explorer will start and other times it does not. What could be the problem. The battery is fine and I recently had the battery cables replaced.


Could be as simple as the neutral switch out of position if it sometimes won't crank over. Turn the switch on, depress the brake, and pull it to neutral position to see if will crank. If it will, readjust the neutral switch while in park position.

pull a wire and ground it via useing a screw driver at the end of the spark plug boot to check for spark / if their is no spark / ignition control module / there is also a crank shaft position sensor / located on the back side of the motor under the coil packs / pain to get to / also the nuetral safty switch / to check the neutral safty switch diconnect the big harnest at the neutral safty switch put a fuse tester to the yellow wire / have someone turn the key / with the tester grounded the light should come on / now we know the ignition switch has power going through it. if there is a no power at the yellow wire / bad ignition switch / does the car have a relay located at the top of the radiator core support (up by the radiator looking down drivers side)if it does not gm will install one for free / if there is / look for the purple wire coming out of the relay and Follow it down to the starter / reconnect the neutral safty swtch / touch the small S (the smallest screw) terminal on the starter soilenoid / have someone turn the key forward check the light / this will detemine if the relay is good / CAREFULL NOT to touch the big starter wire with the little one it will jump the starter / I HAVE THE SAME CAR / Hope this helps
