Question about 1995 Ford Econoline

1 Answer

95 Club Wagon Econoline will not start

Have replaced battery, solenoid on fender, solenoid and starter and the van still does not start. Tried to do the ignition test. Not sure what else to do. Wondering if fuses could be the problem. Not sure where all the fuses are located and how to get to them. Still not sure about the ignition switch. Any ideas?

Make sure your battery is 100% on your solenoid there should be 2 or 1 small wires on it [ IF IT HAS 2 WIRES MAKE SURE U HAVE NOT MIXED THEM UP TRY SWAPPING AROUND ] use a test light and check for power while someone hold the key on start if u have power with the key on start then u still have problems with starter.
if u have no power then connect wires back on hold your foot on the brake hold key on start and move gear lever up and down if it starts then inhibtor swich needs adjusting or replacing see how u go let me know if u need anymore help

1989 Ford Econoline 150 Van will not start

Most all vehicles have main power cable to starter solenoid which is mounted on the starter where the power cable to the switch connects OR there is a separate heavy gauge red wire connected to the positive post of the battery that leads to the ignition switch. Also check your ground cable by connecting battery jumper cable to negative post on battery and other end to metal frame of van.

My 95 econoline van willnot start then aday or two later it started. went to store and then it would not start. Battery is ok

Sounds like you may have a loose connection somewhere...I would start by checking the negative battery cable as this seems to be the most common connection that is lost...follow the black lead down to where it connects...usually on the engine somewhere, and then remove it , clean the area where it goes with sandpaper or a wire brush and then reconnect...the positive cable goes to a solenoid that is triggered by the ignition switch..make sure these connections are tight also....the other lead on the side of the solenoid goes down to the starter..check and clean this also...hope this helps

Does the starter solenoid at least click?
If not, then solenoid is the problem.
If it does click, then could be starter, low battery, or something else we would walk through.
Ford usually has a round starter solenoid on the fender near the starter, but not part of it.
Fords also sometimes need to have the engine turned a bit by hand, to get it past a spot where the bendix binds.

1989 Econoline 351 started the van today and the starter motor stuck, then later today the van was dead. It has no power at all. The battery is new the ignition module is new. I am stuck. Andrew

If the starter motor remained engaged when you released the key, the underlying cause is likely a bad starter solenoid (first item the positive battery cable connects to after the battery) Remaining engaged, can damage the starter itself. Replace the solenoid, check the starter and you should be finished. (Or also replace the starter if it was damaged)
If the starter was stuck and not engaging, the bendix drive inside the starter has failed...In that case it's best to change the starter as even though it's replaceable, generally by the time it needs replacement the starter is worn in other areas and would need complete overhaul.

I Starting problem...

if you notice this van should have a statrer solenoid on the fender as well as on the starter, clean the body of the solenoid on the fender area and make sure that the ground cable is secure and tight do not wiggle which is just making it loose if it is so go under the vehicle and make sure that the cable is tight
