Try quickly turning your key to the start position and back to the on/run position. Your truck is like mine, if you have a quick hand turning the key to start your truck it will start normally. Honestly that's the best solution. Hopefully I explained myself thoroughly.

SOURCE: I have ford ranger 2003,

You gatta find out if it has any type of theft system and most likely if it does then disconnect it because the computer for it may have malfuntioned and by u disconneting it will deactivate the security for the constint turning over and not starting... so figure that out first...

SOURCE: keep blowing the starter relay fuse on my 1995 ford ranger

Had similiar problem on a old Austin Alegro 25 years ago.

2 reasons.
Starter had worn wire insulation. Used industrial yelow sticker foil on that.
Fuse blow in sane curve highway every time. Car was repainted and wire harness reinstalled unprofessionally previous owner.
Crawled half a day every square mm and yep a litle broke insulation on a positive cable grounding to chassis an blowing the fuse.

Starter wont crank ,engine wont start even when i cross starter and starter turns engine over, shifter wont come out of park what do i need to check


I can't help much w/o year--make--model? Do you have a security system on this vehicle?
Most starters have two voltage circuits, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position, may be wired through neutral switch, depending on the tranny, maybe you have a starter relay? The starter motor usually grounds through the engine block. The fact you can jump the starter motor and it cranks, sounds like the ground is ok. Use a test light, check for voltage on those two voltage terminals. Make sure tranny is out of gear and parking brake is set.
Some makes and models have shift-interlock, you can't shift it unless you step on the brake. Do the brake lites work? If not fix that first.
Some makes and models have a shift-interlock bypass button so you can press the button, then shift into neutral. Parking brake set.

2004 windstar wont start plenty of power but wont start no clicking sounds


What year ? For the 2004 model year, the Windstar was renamed the Ford Freestar. Anti-theft light lit on instrument cluster ? Battery good ! How about the battery cables ? Voltage drop test the starting system . Videos on you tube Starter Voltage Drop
Starter System The starting system cranks the engine at a speed fast enough to permit the engine to start.
  • Heavy cables, connectors and switches are used because of the large current required by the starter motor (11002) while it cranks the engine.
  • The amount of resistance in the starting circuit must be kept to a minimum to provide maximum current for starter motor operation.
  • A discharged or damaged battery (10655), loose or corroded connections or partially broken cables will cause slower than normal cranking speeds and may prevent the starter motor from cranking the engine.
The starting system includes:
  • the permanent magnet gear-reduction starter motor with a solenoid-actuated drive.
  • the battery.
  • a starter switch (part of the ignition switch (11572)).
  • the transmission range (TR) sensor.
  • The TR sensor in the starter control circuit prevents operation of the starter motor unless the selector lever is in NEUTRAL or PARK.
  • Starter Relay-Interrupt The starter relay (14N089) interrupt-consists of:
    • pull-in coil and
    • contacts.
    When the ignition switch is in the START position:
    • Current passes through the starterrelay-interrupt from the engine compartment power distribution box to the starter solenoid (11390) .
    • Anti-theft controller module activates relay-interrupt.
    • Pull-in coil in the starter relay-interrupt is activated and pulls the contacts apart.
    The starter relay-interrupt is deactivated when the ignition switch is in the RUN or OFF position.

How to diagnois problem with no scanner


Eliminate the battery as the issue first up.
Check if you can jump start the car from another vehicle with its engine running or at least have the starter motor kick over the engine. If it starts then you know your battery is the issue. Having lights does not mean the battery has enough cold cranking amps to turn over the starter motor.

2. If the starter cranks the engine over as normal with a jump start from another car but your engine does not start you have also eliminated the starter motor as the issue.

3. If it does not start and the starter motor will not crank the engine over either when you jump start from another vehicle, then there may well be a problem with the starter solenoid, the starter motor itself or with the wiring to the starter solenoid or to the starter motor. No power getting to the starter motor solenoid or to the starter motor and obviously the starter motor will not turn over.

4. So I need not write much more here, there is a very good guide to solving starting issues here which I suggest you might like to read.

How Can a fan belt tensioner malfuction keep a motor from moving ?


Can you turn the engine by hand to make sure the engine isn't seized or hydrostatic lock? If you suspect hydrostatic lock, remove the spark plugs, then see if it will crank.
I don't know if you can visually inspect that the starter drive gear is engaging the flywheel? I can't see much from here, only make suggestions.

What is the solution for preventing armature burnt due to prolonged cranking?


Water in a starter motor is not a real problem but if you are burning motors due to prolong cranking then have the engine looked at as it should start within 6 revolutions of the engine. When using a starter remember that you are drawing up to 400 amps from the battery so the start period should be restricted to 30 secs. with minute rest between attempts. No starter will last if you just keep cranking away forever.

1990 f150 pickup stater keep geting jamed


Test, hook up a starter relay switch, connecting one clamp to the positive battery, and the second clamp to the starter motor. Turn on the ignition switch, make sure tranny is Parked (or neutral if manual tranny).

On some truck/cars with manual tranny, the clutch MUST be depressed to close the circuit to the starter motor. When you hit the button on the starter relay switch, it closes a circuit to allow power from the battery to go to the starter motor. If starter doesn't turn, check the battery ground terminal to make sure its tight. Before you go out to buy a starter relay switch, check both the negative and positive battery clamps are tight. Check the ground end of the battery to make sure its also tight. The ground is often the chassis, or the engine block.

If the engine appears to crank over at the speed it normally did when it starts then the battery and starter are OK. If it cranks over slower try jump starting it from another vehicle, let the other car run for a few minutes first to charge up your battery. If the engine cranks over, an engine needs three things to start, mechanical integrity, the engine must be able to develop adequate compression, it must then get spark and fuel. Some basic diagnostic tests would have to be done to determine what is wrong.

2006 sentra with 93,000 miles on it and it would not turn over yesterday. today was told the it cranks up fine. was told needs cam and crank sensors. does that sound right?


If starter was not engaging yesterday could be a starter or battery starting to go bad could have that problem again, cam and crank sensor will not stop the starter from turning the engine, the motor will not start up and just keep cranking.Hope this was very helpful.

1990 300zx solenoid/starter relay


I would go for the starter motor personally first, as thats the part that cranks the engine over :)

that gets power, then it starts turning the flywheel, the starter motor also keeps the engine running inbetween the engines power strokes while its running.

Go for the starter relay & the starter motor :)

Thanks.
