Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

3 Answers

1996 Ford Explorer won't turn over.

When I turn the key it will click 1 time, and nothing else. I was thinking the starter might be bad, could it be anything else. And if you think it's the starter, what's the best way to check it ?

Thanks in advance,
Greg

Fuel pump will not prevent engine from turnning over. the click you are hearing is the starter silinoid. you have one or more of the following: dead battery corroded battery terminals bad silinoid (or connections at silinoid) bad connections at starter bad starter. if all connections are tight and clean then get some one to turn key to the start position and you check with a test light or volt meter to see if there is 12 volts at the terminals on the silinoid if yes then check the terminal at starter. if all connections are clean what ever piece the voltage stops at is your problem if it goes all the way to the starter but starter will not turn then you need a starter.
Be careful when checking any and all of this dont get any thing you want to keep close to the parts of vehicle that move when running

MY 98 FORD EXPLORER CRANKS BUT DOES NOT TURN OVER. I HAVE POWER BUT MY VEHICLE WON'T START


You mean that the starter is turning (cranks) the engine but the engine won't start? Be sure it is getting fuel. Turn the key to the on position and you should hear the fuel pump in the fuel tank run for a few seconds. If so that is good. If the fuel is being delivered then possibly you have no spark which usually is the electronic ignition module. The only way to test it is to replace it. Your timing chain or belt could be broken or "jumped" as the third possibility. I am leaning toward ignition module being bad as they just die without warning and nothing can revive them.

96 ford explorer wont start. all power when turn key. nothing.


if it turns over from below,then its in the ignition switch and this also feeds power to the e.c.m. to make the engine fire so you either have a bad switch contact or the hot 12 volt wire to the ignition switch

We have all of the power when we turn key. wont turn motor.


On the firewall Ford has a starter solenoid. Follow your battery positive cable from battery to solenoid. There will be 1 wire attached to the solenoid. Have someone turn key to start position not run and with test light check for power at the wire. If power present solenoid is bad.

1996 F150 will not start. Turn key and nothing


if you hear clicking at the starter solenoid,then hit the starter with a hammer a few times,if it turns over a little,then either replace the brushes in the starter which is about $20.00 or buy a new rebuilt starter for about $90.00

Starter relay clicks when you turn ignition key on


no this is either caused by a defective starter solenoid (on starter) or a defective positive battery (red) cable, both are common on this year of explorer.

Car wont start, makes a clicking sound under the hood


try replacing the starter it may be bad, its not your clutch sensor if it was it would do nothing at all. try turning your motor over by hand the starter gear maybe stuck to the flex plate or push start the truck, shut it off and then try to start it if i does nothing but click replace the starter then
