Make sure battery is charged. Check batt. terminals for corrosion. Check ground wires from batt. to the point where they are grounded to ( engine and body ) for loose connections.

I installed a new alternator, batter, and starter in my 1997 Ford Expedition and my truck wont start unless you hit the starter. All the wires are good so what else is there to check?

Sounds like you still have a bad starter. You can get a bad one from the parts store. Go back and have them test it. Or could be cylinoid.

I have a 97 ford expedition. When I turn the key...nothing...not even a click, is that the solenoid, or is there a starter relay that could be bad.

Do you get anything from the dash (lights, gauges..etc.) when you turn the key or is it completely dead? Check the battery connection and also the starter. Sometimes the battery is on its last leg and will provide enough for lights but won't turn it over.

Engine won't start

The fact the engine rotates indicates a good battery, that's eliminated from the search.
The problem is of Main/Auxiliary Power Supply. Trace the Main Battery cacle from the Starter, if it has more than 1 Power cable attached, looking for a connector break running back to the Power Box. If the Starter has only 1 supply cable, then look for a loose joint on that Battery to Power Box Connector Block, or broken 'Spade' connector. If again all appears ok, by using the "Idiot" diagram, on the Power Box and Fuse Box, pull each Maxi and Service Fuse and Relay in turn, looking for a Failure. Should this not detect the fault come back to me again.

97 expedition new window motor and switch still don't work

You have to use a voltmeter and make sure the motor is getting power. If no power at the motor, check for power at the switch, first make sure power is coming into switch, and then operate the switch and make sure power is going out to the motor.

Make sure you have a good ground on the door.

Could have a broken wire between switch and door, or between fuse block and switch. A wire can be broken on the inside without the insulation being broken

Try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is turning the key to the start .Good luck,

Before you start throwing parts at it try taking the bolts out of the starter and inspect the threads.If they are turning black then clean them good with a wire brush.It could be causing you to loose your ground at the starter.
