Question about 1987 Ford Mustang
I have a 1987 Mustang 5.0 i had to get a interlock device put into the vehicle i get home and start working on the body. i try to start it and it made kind of like a machine gun noise and wouldnt turn over. i walked away come back 15 minutes later and it grinded for a second then started right up. i shut it down and it made the same grinding noise. its not a click. i replaced the solenoid. it didnt make a difference im hitting the starter and again im not getting no kind of action. could the starter just have completely took a dump on me with no signs of going out? could the ignition interlock tripped something? after it was put it no problems at all untill i got home. i honestly dont think the interlock has anything to do with it cause it is allowing me to try and start the vehicle. I have used jumper cables on it. im all out of ideas i hope you can help me
The interlock can have something to do with it. I've actually seen those devices rob the battery and create no starts. If it's not installed properly, then it can cause different things to go wrong with the car. Check the condition of your cables. Use a remote start button on the solonoid to make sure the solenoid isn't bad. Load test the battery as well. Check to make sure that your alternator is charging properly.
