SOURCE: 66 mustang only clicks when trying start, battery

The starter is malfunctioning at this time. it could also eb a ignition issue as well. here is a quick starter test procedure that will help you troubleshoot a bit.

Step 1
Check for 12 volts on the large wire attached to the top terminal on the starter relay. It should have battery voltage. If not, the battery, terminals or wire is bad.


Step 2
Check the small wire on the solenoid for power when the key is in the start position. Remove the small wire on the solenoid and have a helper hold the key in the start position. Check the wire for battery voltage. If there is voltage, the starter is bad. If there is no voltage, replace the wire.


Step 3
Check the fuse in the fuse box under the hood on the left fender well. If it is good, check the relay by pulling it out and checking for power at one terminal with the key off. If there is no power, the problem is in the fuse box between the fuse and the relay. If there is power, have the helper hold the key in the start position once again and check for power at another terminal from the ignition key. If there is power, the relay is bad. If there is no power, the starter circuit is suspect.


Step 4
Check to see if there is power to the neutral safety switch if there is no power at the relay. Use the voltmeter to check for power with the key in start. If there is power going in, check for power going out. If there is no power going in, the security system or ignition switch is suspect. If there is power going in and none coming out, the switch is bad. If there is power coming out, the problem is between the neutral switch and the relay.


Step 5
Remove the cover on the bottom of the steering column. Check the solid yellow wire for power when the key is in the start position. If there is no power, the ignition switch is bad.

hi, under the steering wheel there is a sheath that has got a little lug on it that sticks up and as the turn signal is put on this puts a part on the turn signal arm to a point that when you turn straight again the lug on the sheath pushes the leaver back to its correct position, so in view of it, either the lug has broken off the sheath or your right hand side section of the turn signal arm is broken, to find out you will have to remove the steering wheel and check the sheath and the arm...hope this helps

SOURCE: i have a 66 mustang

Could be a bad universal joint. I have a '65 Mustang, once when I installed the drive shaft, I put the rear u-joint into the axle slightly off-center. It would shake rather badly at about 45 MPH, but was mostly smooth above 50 or below 40. I thought it was a wheel balance problem, but it was just the driveshaft being slightly off-center.

What would cause the the instrument pannel voltage regulator to fail on a 66 mustang? The gauges do not work mow.


It's called a CVR, constant voltage regulator, to keep all gauges with same voltage all the time, regardless of spikes. They seldom fail. I did not think we used one back in 66, but I did not start working for Ford until 1975. I would replace it and seee what happens. Let me know.

My rear quarter window slides freely up and down


The window regulator is in need of inspection or replacement. the gear on the knob assembly is not contacting the window gear, therefor it will not operate the window from the knob while cranking.

Sounds like an electrical mess up. Im not too familiar with ford and newer vehicles. It could be the starter getting jambed. The make a grinding/clicking noise..Something like a selenoid? Just ideas..

Where is the voltage regulator for 1987 ford mustang


A bad constant voltage regulator, located on the back of the instrument cluster, will prevent the gauges from reading correctly or at all. It can be inspected with a test light.
