I just recently replaced my starter on a 91 Explorer. It was hard starting before replacement, but now starts right up with new starter. Now the problem. Vehicle starts right up but grinds somewhere, it sounds like it coming from the starter area. Soon as the grinding starts I shut it off.

Find the starter relay. Hopefully you still have the owners manual....find the section for fuses there will be a diagram of fuses and relay. Remove the starter relay and connect the battery. If the starter does not crank than replace the relay. If the starter continues to crank replace the starter. I'm betting the solenoid contacts in the starter solenoid have welded together. The starter is the typical fix for this problem.
suonds like you ha have 1 or2 bad fuesable links trere red 8 gauge wires with round rubber fues blocks, hook test light to ground then poke wire on both sides of fuse blocks .if no power at any side of fuse block replace ..fuse blocks are round hard rubber fuseable links.also make sure positive &negitive cables are good and clean at batt termial.i ve seen to many times when straters get replaced when it was just a bad cabel GOOD LUCK B.HARRIS.A.S.E. 25 YRS.

sounds like the starter motor. you could try tapping the starter with a hammer while the ignition is being turned, if it is stuck, this may free it. if not you will either have to get the starter re-furbished, or buy a replacement
Disconnect starter cable and push-on connector from starter solenoid. CAUTION:
When disconnecting hard-shell connector at S terminal, grasp the
plastic shell and pull off. Do not pull on wire. Be careful to pull
straight off to prevent damage to the connector and S terminal. If any
part of the connection is damaged, replace the damaged components.
Remove upper bolt.
Remove lower bolt.
Remove the starter motor from the vehicle.
Position starter motor to engine and install upper and lower bolt finger-tight.
Tighten the upper bolt to 22-28 Nm (16-21 Lb-Ft) .
Tighten the lower bolt to 22-28 Nm (16-21 Lb-Ft) .
Connect connector on starter solenoid. Be careful to push straight on and make sure connector locks in position with a notable click or detent.
Install starter cable nut to terminal. Tighten to 11-13 Nm (91-122 Lb-In) .
Replace red safety cap.
Lower vehicle to floor.
Connect battery ground cable. NOTE: When the Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
is disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur
while the powertrain control module relearns its adaptive strategy. The
vehicle may need to be driven 16 km (10 miles) or more to relearn the strategy.
2 things 1 starter is bad its located on the driver side of the engine beside the oil pan. 3 bolts and 2 electrical connections
2 bad battery cables. i have replaced a lot of battery cables on these they let enough power through to get a click but not enough to start the engine. this cable is a special cable only available through ford or you can make 1 yourself
