Question about 1989 Ford F 150
I replaced the starter and solenoid on my 1989 ford f-150 lariat 5 speed manual four wheel drive 4.9 L inline six after i had it swamped in a mud hole a couple months back. After i got stuck i was pulled out and the battery light was on so i took it home and havent gotten it to start since. The battery is good and i am getting power, the truck is not turning over there is just an odd vibrating noise coming from the solenoid, the new one...any ideas please?
I have found that Ford products are very sensitive to poor grounds and poor connections at the battery or starter/ starter solenoid. Clean all grounds and terminal connectors really through. Don't just look and judge them to be clean. After market add on battery clamps will corrode where you put the cable into them. Be sure to take them apart and clean there also. Also ck to be sure your battery is putting out the cranking amps it is
rated at. If not sure take it to a shop and have it tested. Good luck.
