SOURCE: 95 F150 wont crank
the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

Did you clean the cables when you changed the battery?
I'd trace the wires connecting your alternator and battery and make sure they are "healthy" and securely fastened. Then, I'd check the wires connecting your battery and starter. Again, make sure the wires are securely fastened and appear clean.
The starter and solenoid are one unit for this vehicle.
Hope this helps and good luck!

sounds to me that you have an igniton problem not a starter problem and or if you have or had an alarm system could be cause if u do give me feedback and i will explain but seems that your starter is fine from what u say but if you think in terms of the elemts to start a vehicle batery gives pwoer to ignition which sends to starter which gives spark etc i would check you ignition system something is causeing a short and not alowing starter to function

Do the dash lights come on ? They should come on when the key is turned to the on position. If nothing happens check the engine relay. It is not too expensive to replace if you really want to eliminate that as the problem. Check all wires going to the starter and make sure it is wired correctly.

The reason car batteries do that is because the battery only runs your accessories and starts the car. The alternator runs the vehicle and charges the battery once it is started. If the battery is failing the charge provided by the alternator runs your accessories and the leftovercharge is displaced into the dead battery.
