Lots of power, dash lights up but no ignition power to starter, relay changed, neutral start switch changed, fuses good.


Well, looking at the schematic, there is the IGN A (Fuse 6) in the under-hood fuse block feeding power to both the ignition switch and to the NO contact of the starter relay. Turning the ignition switch to the START position sends this voltage thru the CRANK (Fuse 8) in the instrument panel fuse block and thru the PARK/NEUTRAL position switch, thru the starter relay coil to ground. This should activate the Starter relay and pass voltage to the starter solenoid to ground, activating it. One the starter solenoid activates, batter power is sent to the starter motor, activating it. If, as you say, the fuses are good, the starter relay was replaced and is good, and the Park/Neutral position switch was replaced and is good, then then only items left are the ignition switch itself, the starter solenoid/motor, or the wiring of the circuit.

2001 ford windstar won't start


does it have the halo around the ignition switch for anti theft? ive seen a lot of those fail and need replaced. on a side note be careful jumping the start on those vans,if the ecm doesnt start it sometimes it wont shut it off either. could be the resistor in the key too.

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.

The starter solenoid on these models are light weight and junk many times right out of the box, ask for the heavier made solenoid and see if that don't solve the problem.

Will not start,OR CRANK, NO NOISE


Do warning lights and gauges come on, when key is turned to on?
If yes, check for power on the small wire at starter solenoid mounted on the starter with the key held in start. If power at the solenoid, take starter off and test for a bad starter or solenoid. If no power at solenoid when key held over to crank, work back to the switch in the start circuit-starter relay, clutch or neutral safety switch,-power from the start wire out of switch is not getting to the starter solenoid.
If no warning lights or gauges work with key in on position, power is either not getting to switch (bad maxi-fuse or fuse link, or bad battery connections-clean and tighten, recheck)-or the switch itself is not sending power out. Check if battery is charged up. Check all connections and grounds for loose, poor connections.
The start circuit starts at the battery, then to ignition switch, then out of ignition switch on the start wire to the clutch switch (or neutral/park on automatics), and on , ending at the starter solenoid on the starter. Somewhere in your starting circuit, power is lost. Start at the battery-check charge, check connections, check ignition switch.

1998 chevy asto van wont crank or turn over


Turn the headlights on and watch them while the key is turned to start. If the lights go out, one of your cables or connections at battery or starter is not good. If lights dim a lot but stay on, possibly a bad starter, it needs testing. If lights aren't affected by cranking position, turn lights off, pull the small wire off the starter solenoid, hook up a test light to ground and to the solenoid wire. Light should come on when key is held in crank. If it does, likely a bad starter solenoid. If no light, then the start circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is not working. Check for power out of ignition switch on the start wire with key in crank, to begin with. If powered, switch is good, need to check if neutral safety switch is good, and then check or swap in a new starter relay.
Post back with any results.
Good luck.

ITurn key, clicking sound, no turn over


If it won't crank over, it's a problem in the starting circuit, not the ignition circuit. Check your battery and starter for clean, tight connections. Listen for that click to see if it comes from the starter solenoid on the starter-maybe have someone try to start it while you watch and listen under the hood. If the click is from the solenoid (and not from the starter relay), then the starter is not getting full battery power to crank (bad connection), or the starter needs to come off and be tested.
If the click is from the starter relay, you could pull off the little purple wire to the starter solenoid and see if it has 12 volts when the key is in start position. If you have power there in cranking position on the switch, the solenoid is bad or the starter may be the problem-again, it will have to come off for testing. If you have no power at the solenoid in cranking position, the circuit from the ignition switch to the solenoid is not working. The start relay and the neutral safety switch (or clutch switch if manual transmission) are in the starting circuit from ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Good luck.

I have a 02 ford windstar. 3.8L does not start or do anything, Has a brand new Battery about a month ago Checked all fuses and they all have power. When you turn the key to start nothing happens, no...


A few things I can think of are the starting circuit of the ignition switch, the neutral saftey switch, the starter solenoid, a fusible link, and a bad connection.

I have a 1992 Ford F150 Straight 6 motor, 2 wheels drive, an it won't start. I have already put in a new solenoid, & starter.


try jumping the small wire on starter solenoid to 12volts , make sure vehicle is not in gear , park or nuetral only, if engine turns over power is not coming from ignition switch. if it does not turn over you have a power or ground problem on secondary circuit
