Possible internal starter problem. Try tapping on starter motor while key is held in crank position. If vehicle starts, suspect a starter motor problem and replacement will be required

Turn the key and the engine makes a click noise only and wont turn over. lights and accessories work so i believe battery is good. iam thinking starter or soliniod ?

Yes, if it is making a loud clicking noise it is most likely the starter. The solenoid is working...that is what you hear clicking. Doesn't get both when you buy a starter anyway.

I would try a new Ignition switch and ask the parts person about having a main power Relay for your model. Its also possible you have a dead short in your Starter. Take one side of the jumper cable and bypass the Starter Solenoid and see if the starter will crank.

Make sure you are out of gear on a Stickshift when you try this. You can start the truck by putting the Key on Run position and then jump the Starter Relay another way by disconnecting the small Tickler wires and putting 12 volts to the Tickler terminal. This way you check out the Relay.

If it cranks, it should start with the Ignition in Run position. Once started you can see what works and what does not work. Until you locate the short, a fusible link might be a good spare part to carry in the glove box.

I hope my solution is helpful to you.

Intermittent operation, sometimes it starts fine, then it will act like low battery - battery is new and alternator is fine ie; charging system is full and active.

Take to Autozone or Oreillys for a starter draw test. Sometimes the starter will have a bad place and will not energize to spin the starter.
Another possibility is the Throttle Position Sensor which is located on the airhorn. This balances the fuel and spark systems for the gas pedal. When you start the engine it gives you the base idle and must work with the cold start system.

You need to check and see if when you turn the key to start that you get current at the starter soldnoid. If not check the safty switch and the ignition switch. If you get current check and see if it goes thru to the starter if not replace soldnoid if it does check the starter itself. These are all electrical and can fail at any time without any warning. Good luck.

Location of alternator 1986 ford f150 xlt lariat

Well first have you charged your battery back up, if so then try to by pass the ingintion switch by just connecting the two main post of the colenoid with a piece or wire, this creates a direct wire basically from your battery to your starter, if still no luck you will need a new starter located more to the drivers side close to right under the pedels on the bottom side of the truck.
