Question about 1984 Ford F 150
The truck has it's 4th starter relay in less than a year. I just put a new one on this morning and the truck still won't start. I was able to jump it off the starter relay and it ran fine, but after it sits for a few minutes, it won't crank, start, nothing, and I have no power inside the cab. What could be causing this problem?
You have a bad connection. It will pass enough current to keep things running, but the starter load is causing it to burn the spots that are making contact.
I had this same issue with my '86 F-150, and the final solution was to replace the all the heavy cables: battery to solenoid, solenoid, to starter, and block to battery ground. Thoroughly clean the block where the negative cable connects, and the battery terminals.
