    i need to know how to replace the solenoid>? and how to replace the starter?

  • hazznomad Feb 25, 2009

    I do not here clicking from starter when I turn switch... i replaced the fender Solenoid. But car won't start unless i jump it from a charged battery or if i charge the battery a little, I can jump it off from the fender Solenoid. So, something in switch is draining battery. Hint: When I turn on lights the key dinger comes on and stays on until i turn the lights off. How do I know if I have a bad switch or a short and how can I repair?

    Why would you give me an inappropriate ratting If you cant under stand the answer then maybe you shouldnt ask the question . I answered your question for free when no body else would. If you needed more details you could of asked but that rating was inappropriate dont expect any free answers with you rating people like that . JUST RUDE.

We have a 1994 ford bronco 4x4 eddie bauer, its been running fine and today it would not start. It has power, lights, doorchimesm, interior light all work. When you turn it over it just clicks. We tried to...

It definetly sounds like starter motor issue....there are 2 circuits within the starter motor, one is the pullin winding, that brings the gear close to the flywheel, and the motor windings that "cranks" the motor. It sounds like the pull in windings are working but the cranking circuit has failed.

This requires a starter motor replacement.......what you can do is "lightly" tap the starter motor with a blunt object and it might start once or twice, but a replacement is highly suggested.

1991 Ford Tempo no crank, battery good, solenoid clicks

hi unfortunatly starters do have a habbit of dying, actually it is not normally the starter itself but the solinoid connected to the starter, you can try this to see if it will unstick it, get a friend to turn the key as if to start the car, and then at the same time give the starter a tap with a hammer or bar if you cant get to it with the hammer, be sure to stay away from any moving parts if it starts it could be bad, but just tap it, no need to give it a bash a few light taps should free it, if no joy then you will need to change the starter motor...hope this helps

Ok my 1994 ford temp will not start the battery is ok and the starter clicks but won"t start

Your starter motor is likely bad, but before you remove the starter, take the battery and get it tested, you may have a bad battery, just because the lights and accessories work doesn't mean that your battery is not underpowered under a load. If the battery checks out o.k. remove the starter and have it tested at your local parts store. good luck.

1994 ford tempo will not start only clicks

Hook your voltage tester to the battery, then have a helper try to start the car. Watch the voltage when you hear the click. If it drops much under 12v then odds are the battery is no good. Have it load tested at your local autoparts store
