Question about 1985 Ford Mustang

Ford starter won't disengage even after the ignition is switched

Changed starter after 17 years. Now, 2 weeks later. The starter starts the 92 f-150 just fine, but wont stop cranking even after the key is released or after the key is removed (ignition in the off position) and the engine is NOT running.

Maybe the ignition is bad- or your starter solenoid stuck in engaged position?

Starter engages but wont disengage when started


You'll need to figure out if it is an electrical problem or something hanging up in the bell housing.
You can leave off the wire from the key and try it to see if something is powering the solenoid after you release the key switch. If your model has the solenoid on the fender it could be sticking.

Car won't turn over randomly


When it will not crank, a mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the clutch safety switch, and the key switch.

Ignition problem... No signal from ignition to solenoid...run a starter draw test to confirm starter is ok --- You can run your jump wires to a remote starter button or switch to get around it for now.

I hope this helps.

It sounds like a fault in the starter circuit. It could be a defective neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, or possible a defective ignition switch but I doubt it. Can you hear the starter solenoid??? I'm willing to bet the problem is either with starter relay, neutral safety switch, or starter solenoid.

I guess what your doing is disconnecting the battery to stop the starter from grinding, on the starter solenoid sit on the fire wall there a small wire that just plug's into the solenoid that wire come's from the ignition switch, disconnect it connect battery if starter till stays engage it's not the switch it's the starter, also try checking voltage at that small wire should only have voltage with key to start only, also try hitting the starter some time that will disengage it, but more then likely bad starter, good luck, hope this was very helpful.
